Tiernan is 25 years in Dundalk Property Market

Article from ‘The Argus’ this week.

It’s  25 years since a  young Tyrone  man  arrived in  Dundalk, less than ten miles from the  place of  his mother’s birth and embarked   upon the  career of  his  choice. He started an apprenticeship  in the  local property  market  which he  completed  and went  on to establish  his  own  business Mallon Property that he  runs now  from 8 The Business Centre, Dublin Street.

 That  in  broad  terms  describes the professional  path that Tiernan Mallon has  followed, but  behind it is quite an  achievement and  one to be  proud of  to  manage to keep  up with  all the  developments, changes and  more significantly the  sizable  challenges  of a  profession in a  town that has  had to contend  with more than  most in the  country in that  quarter of a  century.

 His is a progressive, results orientated estate agency which specialises in residential sales, lettings, commercial, agricultural and all valuation sectors.

For over the  last  25 years  he has  gained exceptional experience in all  aspects of Agency  work, while  developing a  strong reputation locally as an agent that works at all  times  with honesty and  integrity.

 

Tiernan  has  come  through  all  that  with a  reputation enhanced for  coping  with  the vagaries of  trade  that  has equipped and  made him  better able to serve the needs of  his  customers and how  best to  advise them and handle  their  property  transactions.

 

He at this stage is accepted at one of the town’s own, having immersed himself in local sporting and community life. Part of his  roots  are from the  locality with  his mother (name include?) born  in Omeath, where  his  maternal  grandfather (name include?) was the headmaster of the  local national school for over  30  years.

 

Indeed the Mallon  family connection with the North Louth village is still  strong  as  Tiernan’s  brother Garrett resides in and runs a successful craft business from ‘The Masters’  old house.

 

For his part Tiernan remembers always feeling welcome and at home when he moved to Dundalk from Dungannon in 1988. Though a ‘Red Hand’ county supporter, he now proudly calls Dundalk home.

 

Outside property Tiernan is an avid scuba diver connected to Dundalk Sub Aqua Club and is a volunteer diver on the Search and Recovery unit attached to the club.

 

As a member of ‘Louth Trades Network’ he has enjoyed lifting a paintbrush and getting his hands dirty with several of their local charity refurbishment projects.

 

Over his years he was strongly involved in management of Seatown underage football teams in Dundalk Schoolboys League. He had been known to lace up his own boots in Dundalk Summer and Winter Leagues.

 

When his nerve was better he also fondly remembers lifting The League Cup in the old Commercial Club in the Dundalk Snooker League.

 

 In his profession he has collected a wealth of experience in property sales throughout the last 25 years having traded through bad times to good then back to these current tough times again.

 

He strongly believes that the current drastic reduction in Bank lending together with the current property value collapse will lead intending sellers to think long and hard before they appoint their agent. Is this the person that can ‘sell’ my home?’ should be the first question on their mind. To this end Tiernan has a guide on his website www.mallonproperty.com on choosing the right agent.

 

 ‘Traditional values still remain most important when dealing with people’s most valuable asset. I feel fortunate to have dealt with all aspects of estate agency and have at all times tried to deal with my business with honesty and integrity’.
