Michael Boyd elected as new chairman for REA

The appointment of Michael Boyd, Director of Boyd’s Real Estate Alliance in Kilkenny as Chairperson of the national property group and Patrick Riney of Orchard Real Estate Alliance of Rathfarnham as Vice-Chairperson took place on the 27th of November 2009.

“We have the experience to guide our clients through this”, said the incoming Chairman, Michael Boyd. “Our members are long-standing in their communities and have the expertise to get through these challenging times. We were never under any illusions that the property sector is cyclical. We have been through recessions before and come out the other side. Many of the Real Estate Alliance agents are lucky in that they are not overly dependent on the residential market, which has been hardest hit and as such they are busy doing valuations, rating appeals and giving professional services to our clients
