Southern Real Estate Alliance

Southern Real Estate Alliance are a long established, family run estate agents based at 37 Dublin Street Carlow.

The company was originally founded by brothers Harry & George Southern in the early 70’s and back then was known as Mc Kenna & Southern Auctioneers which had premises at 27 Dublin Street. However during the 1980’s, the company changed its name to Southern Auctioneers and also made a move to their current premises.

Eight years ago, the company joined the Real Estate Alliance or REA Group and Harry now holds the position of Group Chairman. REA currently have 47 offices throughout the country.

Current staff members include brothers Harry & George Southern, Harry’s son Keith and valuable staff members June Doran and Anna Deering.

Keith and June currently run the company’s rental agency which was started just over a year and a half ago. Over the years Southern Auctioneers have been heavily involved in many significant commercial and domestic developments in Carlow including the Fairgreen Shopping Centre and numerous large housing estates.
