On a sunny afternoon recently in Clontarf, Anastasia Almiasheva took a Whatsapp video call. It was from a potential buyer for her apartment at 12 Hollybrook Manor. Anastasia introduced herself and then took the viewer on a tour of the property. She started at the entrance to her apartment building, walked into the hallway, then through her apartment, pointing out the features.

Anastasia is part of a seismic shift in the property market that involves new bidding and transaction platforms, an explosion in virtual viewings, and a big increase in bids from buyers who have never set foot inside the property.
