Here's what they're saying ABOUT Peninsula ... but of course, you can't believe everything you see or read ... so you will just have to find out for yourself won't you?

 The most straight talking honest agent in the country.  Tells it as it is and allows the client to make up his/her own mind. (Jean, Cork)

Elaine - thank you for your honest feedback.  It's much appreciated. In some cases it would take a detailed engineer's report and a lot of time wasting to reach the knowledge level that I have after one email and one conversation with you,  (Deirdre, Denmark)

Instictively, Elaine knew the property I would love.  Her local knowledge and ability to keep negotiations going are invaluable.  (C. Vernon, UK)

Elaine is a knowledgeable, professional agent who offers personal service.  She is willing to work through any problem with great patience and creative solutions. (S. Winters, Ireland & USA)

Elaine's compass is right on.  The rental she found us suited our family perfectly.  Long before we decided to move from New York to West Cork we were told that Elaine was the woman to talk to.  (C. Wallner, USA)

If you are looking for a home in the Sheepshead region you are in luck.  Elaine is the most professional and personable real estate auctioneer that I have ever had the pleasure to meet. (PHD, USA)

Elaine has been a big part of our West Cork adventures.  We have really appreciated her professionalism, energy and knowledge, but most of all her sense of humour! (L. Hamilton, USA)

From day one, I knew and trusted my family would remain in very firm hands.  Not only did Elaine prepare and provide a sober analysis of what had been a very soft market in Ireland, she did so with grace, a high degree of polish and a grand sense of humour.
(Tyler McKenzie, USA)

Elaine is unique because she cares for her clients.  (Peter and Sue Banks, UK)

Peninsula Properties made me feel in safe hands from the start and Elaine's practical advice and warm friendly service was a key factor in choosing to buy in the area.  (
J.Wright, UK)

Acutely honest.

I have no hesitation in recommending Peninsula Properties and Elaine Spillane to anyone who owns or wants to own property on the Sheepshead Peninsula.  Elaine, having lived there for many years, is very knowledgeable about the area and the local community.  (Mary Maguire, USA)

Thanks for a great professional service Elaine.  You're by far the best estate agent I've dealt with.  (John C., Cork City)
