Looking for Estate Agents in Glasgow? Meet David O’Connor, partner agent with TAUK.
David is a proud Glaswegian. Born and raised in Glasgow, he has enjoyed living in different parts of the city. He now calls East Kilbride home, where he lives with his wife, Donna.
David believes the best thing about Glasgow is undoubtedly the people. There is great diversity and a wide range of demographics that means no two days in property are the same. David started in estate agency in 2006 and spent his career successfully selling homes across Glasgow. From stunning river views to the lively, buzzing city atmosphere means that Glasgow offers something for everyone. So for those looking for urban living in Scotland, Glasgow has become a top choice.
David and Donna work together as a husband and wife team to bring a personal service to property selling and buying. Glasgow has grown enormously in popularity in recent years. They are proud to be offering a service conducive to modern-day living.
Local knowledge is key. Growing up locally, David can point you in the direction of affluent and sought-after areas in the centre of Glasgow and on the outskirts, which should be at the top of any buyers list. Similarly, David knows how to market these premium homes to achieve the best result when it comes to selling.
The West End offers some beautiful Victorian homes with chic pillared entrances situated in the energetic, vibrant hub of the city. Encompassing quite a large geographical quarter, and within it, the areas of Dowanhill, Kelvingrove, Hyndland and Hillhead are particularly popular. Great locations for both families and young professionals owing to to their central locations yet surrounded by green open spaces such as the Glasgow Botanic Gardens and Kelvingrove Park.
The Park area has recently seen many of its imposing Victorian properties converted from commercial premises back into residential homes, and there are some attractive opportunities here for homeowners. Clarence Drive, Byres Road and Hyndland Road provide an eclectic array of restaurants, wine bars and shops and give the area an attractive bohemian atmosphere. Hillhead Primary School and Kelvinside Academy are two excellent schools located in Glasgow’s West End.
To the north of Glasgow, some exceptionally desirable locations offer stunning properties that can be reached quickly by train or car, although not in the most central locations. Bearsden, just on the fringe of Greater Glasgow, is a particular favourite, with addresses like Grange Road and Boclair Road being a popular choice with families due to the beautiful detached houses available.
Always in high demand are homes in Bearsden. This is due to the area’s quality of life with green open spaces at Kilmardinny Loch Nature Reserve and Mugdock Country Park close by.
South of the city centre, you can find other prestigious locations such as Thorntonhall, Whitecraigs and Giffnock. However, Baroness Drive and Baron Court are the most highly sought-after addresses. The architecture of these houses vary but are generally considered the most attractive in Glasgow.
The area of Shawlands has recently become an appealing choice for young families seeking larger homes but who wish to live slightly further from the city centre.
David sees his career in Estate Agency as a vocation.
When he is not selling houses, you will find David watching Formula 1 or out for a nice meal with Donna and his stepson Nathan.
