O’Dwyer is a leading Chartered Property and Facility Management firm founded in 1988 by Siobhan O’Dwyer. The firm offers a broad range of specialist advisory management and transactional services.
O’Dwyer has its genesis in residential property management and is now recognised as the preeminent firm in Ireland in this field. However, over time it has evolved to provide a comprehensive service offering covering, not only residential, but all the property sectors.
O’Dwyer employs over 85 specialists, encompassing, Property Surveyors, Valuers, Asset Managers, Facility Managers, Building and M&E, Engineers, Letting Specialists, QFA’s and Accountants who together provide a multi-disciplinary and bespoke service offering to the property industry.
The financial crisis of 2008-2012 not only gave rise to a high level of distressed property but it also redrew the property ownership landscape in Ireland. Financial institutions, pension funds and professional landlords now control an increasing share of the national portfolio. O’Dwyer rose to the challenges and to the shift of ownership and tailored its service offering to meet the requirements of this more sophisticated client base. This earned O’Dwyer its position as special advisor to various banks including NAMA and a large and distinguished institutional clientele, including QIAIF’s and some of the largest global property firms.
O’Dwyer can provide a one stop shop to investors encompassing investment management, facility services, turnaround and transactional services. These services can also be unbundled to provide a bespoke offering in specific client situations.
The firm’s competitive advantages are its experienced team of mixed professionals, a nationwide platform and a unifying management philosophy. This management philosophy consists of five tenets—risk control, consistency, specialisation, bottom-up analysis and value add strategies. This philosophy is complemented by a set of core business principles that articulate O’Dwyer’s commitment to excellence commonality of interests with clients, a collaborative and cooperative culture, and a disciplined, opportunistic approach to the expansion of offerings.
