Articles

Welcome to the Quillsen Articles section of our site. As one of the Directors of Quillsen I get to hear from all of our hard working estate agents about the issues both buyers and sellers are having right now so I hope you find our articles informative, interesting and maybe even entertaining.

The opinions I express here are generally based on advice that I would give to a friend or family member, whether they might be interested in buying or selling their home. I wish you all the best on your property journey wherever that might be.

Regards,

Marian McQuillan
