    Interior Inspiration from My Dark Home

    Greeted at the door by Eniko and her two Labradors Penny and Archie we were made to feel very welcome. “We bought our house four years ago ­– it was built by the Andrews family, known for designing Titanic.” explains Eniko 
    “The selling point of the house was the location,” she says. “It’s a ten-minute walk from a small town, yet still in the countryside and secluded. Houses in the area very rarely come on the market, so we got lucky. The house came with a balcony and loads of original features, which is just amazing.” 
    “It’s safe to say I’m a bit of a maximalist,” Eniko declares, of her decorating style which embraces eclectic, Scandi, and boho elements. “I like a bit of everything and that’s why every room in the house has a different style,” she says.

    John Minnis Estate Agency ranked 3rd in uk at 2018 estate agent of the year awards!

    The calibre of estate agencies within the category and the fact that we were placed ahead of some of the best known estate agencies in the UK makes this a significant achievement for us all at John Minnis.

    And as if this wasn’t enough, John Minnis Estate Agency received 4 further awards;

    • Best Local Estate Agency Group in Northern Ireland,
    • Gold Award Northern Ireland Estate Agent of the Year, Silver & Bronze Awards
    • Northern Ireland Letting Agent of the Year, Silver Award.

    The awards, which are in their 15th year, are the culmination of the largest independent customer service feedback scheme for the residential property industry in the UK. This makes the ESTAs one of the most valued award ceremonies out there, because they are based on feedback by you, our valued customers.

    Company Director, John Minnis, was in London to receive the awards;

    “This really is a very special day for us all at John Minnis. Winning any award is gratifying but to be ranked third in the whole of the UK in the 'Local Estate Agency Group’ category is just astounding and I couldn’t be more proud of the team at John Minnis Estate Agency!

    Everyone at John Minnis works incredibly hard to ensure the best customer experience for every person that avails of our services and without their dedication, success at awards such as the ESTAs would not be possible.

    Thanks also to all our customers and indeed, everyone, who took the time to vote and provide such positive feedback”.

  • John Minnis Fundraiser in Aid of Kodi's Krew

    John Minnis Fundraiser in Aid of Kodi's Krew

    In 2018 John Minnis Estate Agents have arranged and taken part in some fantastic fundraising events and with your help we have raised almost £2000.

    Our fundraisers have varied this year, from hosting a Macmillan coffee morning in our Holywood Office, enjoying delicious treats and great conversations with our lovely clients to getting our Staff out in their lycra for the Run in the Dark at Stormont to support the Mark Pollock Trust.

    Our most recent Fundraiser was a night at the movies with popcorn and prosecco in the Tudor Cinema in aid of Kodis Krew.

    Kodi Brown is a 10 year old girl from Killinchy, Co. Down who has been diagnosed with a Brain Tumour.

    Curative treatment was not offered in the UK on the NHS for Kodis condition. Her family refused to accept that there were no other options.
    The family researched other methods unsupported in the UK and found a clinic in Germany who offered them hope. They set off on a self funded trip to Germany to a clinic where pioneering immunotherapy is offered, alongside infusion treatments to strengthen the immune system in conjunction with conventional brain tumour treatments.
    Each week of treatment is costing €6,000, each MRI scan is €950. The treatment is expected to last for 6 months, during which time Kodi hopefully will be able to return home for short periods of respite.

    When we heard of Kodi's story we were egar to help. Our night at the movies was a great success with a sold out venue. We raised £928 from ticket sales and holding a raffle on the night. When we reached out to organise raffel prizes, we were overwhelmed by the support of other businesses in the surrounding area. We received amazing prizes and vouchers from The Sugarcane, Triat Coffee, Indie Fude, The Comber Tandori, Millenial Nails, Clinique, Aly Harte, Stremavale Farm & Urban Fitness.

    We loved all of our fundraising events in 2018 and look forward to continuing this in 2019.
