Northern Ireland Keego Investments celebrates £2m of buy-to-let investment sales in only six months

Northern Ireland’s Keego Investments is celebrating passing the £2M threshold of property sales in only the last six months for their investment clients.

Dubbed the ‘NI Property Girl’ on social media, managing director Eimear Gourley founded the investment company in April 2020, only a month after the initial lockdown period began.

Since then, she has been helping clients across Northern Ireland to begin and build their property investment portfolios.

Leaving a role in the construction industry as a civil engineer behind, Eimear said she wanted to help more people realise their dream of becoming property investors:

“I come from a family of builders and my dad has been investing in property for years. I had always been waiting for the right moment until I realised, there wasn’t one. When the first lockdown was called, the wheels were already in motion and I just kept going.

“My business is designed to help those with no experience in property investing or with simply no time to do it themselves. I take my clients from the very start of property investing through to the final lick of paint in the refurbishment.

“My main service is helping to build client property portfolios. From one property to tens of properties. I agree the amount of money our client would like to invest and the return they are seeking, negotiate with the seller on the purchase price, estimate any refurbishment works that need carried out and assist with the buying process. I work with the best team of solicitors, mortgage brokers and builders to help make the journey as smooth as possible.”

Previously a civil engineer, Eimear has extensive knowledge of the sector and has been project manager for multi-million pound construction sites.

When asked where the Northern Ireland property-hotspots are, Eimear says the Greater Belfast area will always be a secure choice for buy-to-let investors:

“The greater Belfast area is where the strongest capital growth and rental demand currently is. Of course, we will always consider a property anywhere if the figures work for our client, but Belfast is usually a safe and sensible choice.

“As an investor, you’ll want to benefit from strong rent but also take advantage of capital growth; to get the very best outcomes for our clients that’s where we focus.”
