At Gartlan O’Rourke our aim is to provide you with the best possible offers within the shortest possible timeframe, but this is not the only reason to choose us to sell your property.

Our independent status allows us to create bespoke marketing strategies that are tailored to match our clients’ specific properties rather than comply with traditional group formulas. This personalised approach, combined with eye-catching marketing and sophisticated technology, guarantees your property will get noticed. Your property will not be lost among hundreds of others. 

We are one of the longest established estate agents in the north–east. Over the last 40 years we have sold everything from small cottages to country estates, factories to farms, town houses to even a complete village. We use this experience when it comes to the marketing of your property and getting you the best results.

Local knowledge
We have spent our lives in the area and we know it like the back of our hand. Our extensive and personal knowledge of the local property market gives us the edge. This is why some of the world’s largest agencies have used us as joint agents to sell exclusive properties in this region.

We sell homes, not houses. Having sold and bought our own homes over the years we know the stress that can be involved. Our focus is on establishing a close relationship with you, so that we fully understand your individual circumstances – and your feelings – every step of the way. Because of this we limit the number of houses we carry for sale at any one time, ensuring each client get individual attention. 

That bit extra
As you would expect, we offer a FREE detailed property appraisal service for sellers. But did you know as part of our marketing package we provide floor plans, a full colour brochure with descriptions and we advertise with all the leading websites including myhome, daft,, all at no extra cost to our clients. If your property requires that extra push we can offer aerial photography, walk through virtual tours and local and national newspaper advertising.

We look after your home as if it were our own and give regular feedback to discuss viewings, progress and alternative strategies. Our success depends on our clients’ satisfaction and we constantly strive to improve the quality of our service.
