Anderson Auctioneers was established in 1897. Keith joined in 1983 and is the fifth generation in the business. He is well established in Donegal Town. Keith chose to avoid affiliation, preferring to remain independent and give clients 100% of his time and knowledge.
Services include sales of residential and commercial properties and farm and commercial land. Keith qualified for Tegova Blue Book Valuation Standards and is on the panel for AIB, BOI, EBS Commercial and the Credit Union. He is a member of IPAV and is its former president.
Anderson's provide friendly, professional service in the heart of Donegal. The success of the Wild Atlantic Way combined with National Geographic naming Donegal as the Coolest Place on the Planet, Star Wars being filmed in the county and great reviews on websites such as Trip Advisor led to an increase in people seeking holiday or residential homes in the area.
Keith has been the driving force in Ireland when it comes to e-conveyancing, and thanks to his efforts, it is expected to be a reality. He began by conducting a survey to establish the reasons for delays in conveyancing. The information gathered was then presented to the Minister for Justice, the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality and the Law Society. The findings were taken on board and thanks to progressive dialogue, a plan was put in place.
Keith Anderson has donated a lot of time to charities and sporting clubs by offering his services as auctioneer for many functions. Since 2000, he has helped raise almost €700,000 through auctions where much-needed funds were raised.
A past-President of Donegal Rugby Club, Keith is a member of many sporting clubs. He is also on a committee for the Research Centre for Crumlin, holding an annual Golf Day at Donegal Golf Club. Since it was first held in the early 1990s, that Golf Day has generated around €1,000,000.
