It was a pleasure to assist shareholders Sherry FitzGerald (Ireland´s largest property and mortgage advisory firm), Peter Rollings and Liza-Jane Kelly who have worked together to build the business into one of London's premium estate agency brands. We wish Peter and Liza-Jane every success as they work with LSL Property Services to grow the business further.”
