One of Northern Ireland’s leading estate agencies, Simon Brien Residential, has reacted to a positive outlook for the housing market by opening the doors to a new office in Newtownards, creating five jobs in the process.
On the back of this, a further 12 jobs have been generated throughout the Simon Brien Residential branches, in south Belfast, east Belfast and Holywood.
