Our Services


James O'Doherty and Company was established in 1915 by Mr. James O'Doherty. It was primarily concerned with rent collection and property management. In 1971 Mr. John Doherty (who is still in practice to this day) bought the company. Over the next few years Mr. Doherty established the business as it is today i.e. Valuers, surveyors, property consultants and commercial sales.
