About the Author
With over twenty years’ experience in the property and financial services industry in Ireland, Joey Sheahan has provided thousands of people with mortgage, property, life insurance and pension advice and services. He has been involved in deals totalling half a billion euro over the past two decades.
Joey has always been a self-starter with a strong appetite for commerce. Following five years working as an auctioneer, he founded MyMortgages.ie in 2005, which has gone from strength to strength ever since – navigating some tricky economic waters and emerging as one of Ireland’s most respected and renowned brokerages with a national presence. The business has grown steadily year-on-year and Joey is committed to ongoing growth in the years to come.
It wasn’t a surprise that his career path led him to the mortgage and financial services sector. His father, Frank, an auctioneer and property developer, introduced his children to the world of property at a young age and Joey spent his summer holidays working on building sites from the age of twelve. It is to Frank that he gives credit for instilling in him a hard- working and honest approach to business.
Joey has an instinct for business and a natural rapport with people – and both attributes have contributed heavily to his achievements over the years. He is an active advocate for charities and community initiatives, and a willing participant in fundraisers that range in scale from 5k runs to marathon, triathlon and open-water swimming events.
A seasoned rugby supporter and player, Joey still keeps a firm footing in the sport. A few of his highlights include captaining the Presentation Brothers College Cork team to victory in the Munster Schools Junior Cup, winning a Senior Cup medal, followed by winning the 1998 U–19 Rugby World Cup with Ireland and the Students European Cup with UCC in 1999. He represented Ireland at U–19, student and university levels. He says that these sporting successes ‘made me believe that I could achieve anything from a young age’.
He may have since hung up his boots as a player to settle for the comfort of the stands, but his experiences from that time have had a formative and lasting impact on his attitude to teamwork and leadership.
This book is a culmination of years of hard work, dedication and enjoyment, so don’t delay – get stuck in!
