Everyone at Pinkertons HQ are in the final throes of getting ‘reddy’ for the NI Chest Heart & Stroke Red Dress Run this Saturday and everyone has been taking it very seriously to ensure we are well prepped for the day.

NICHS is holding this event to raise awareness of the shocking...

New Year, New House, New Adventure!

Posted on Tuesday, 03 January 2017 in Local News by Laura McKeown

Here at Pinkertons we understand the pressures and stress that can come with moving house.

Between finding that perfect home and boxes piled as high as the ceiling all you can think of is being pampered whilst sipping champagne in a hot tub. Before you add a hot tub to your ‘to buy list’ we at Pinkertons have you covered.

For every home that is registered on to the market in January we at Pinkertons are gifting you a £150 voucher for Galgorm Resort & Spa...

On a cold Sunday in November the Pinkertons Posse started to gather. They strode into Bloomfield Shopping Centre with money and pain on their minds. At exactly one hour after mid-day they mounted their chosen steads and set out on the long ride ahead.

No sooner had they started out, the herd started to arrive, and in numbers too. Rising to the challenge the hands picked up their lasso’s (red plastic buckets) and began rounding up and branding (with stickers) anything that...

It’s hard to explain, but the instant that ill-fitting piece of knitwear is pulled over your head, the world is a brighter place: strangers become friends as you get a glimpse of tinsel from beneath their coats. Offices seem brighter, winter wardrobes a little chirpier. Even that stern faced accountant looks like he’d welcome a Christmas hug.

So every Friday in December Pinkertons management and staff will donate to Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke's ‘Jolly...

Good Things Happen Over Coffee & Cake!

Posted on Wednesday, 09 November 2016 in Local News by Laura McKeown

Pinkertons Comber Branch was the venue for the first of our Charity Coffee Mornings in aid of Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke. There was plenty of buns, cake and coffee to be had, in fact probably too much as we are still munching our way through the leftovers! (Cake for lunch is OK...yes?!)

We are very proud to announce that we raised a superb total of £502.25!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped and supported us in anyway,...

Great British Bake Off Starts Tonight

Posted on Wednesday, 24 August 2016 in General, Local News by Laura McKeown

The Great British Bake Off starts tonight which means every Wednesday for the next 10 weeks we are more than justified in donning our pinnies, eating our bodyweight in all things ‘cake’ whilst are sides are splitting at all of Paul, Mary and Co’s wonderful ‘bunuendos’.

Maybe turning all Mary Berry (or Paul Hollywood!) has put you in the notion of upgrading to a bigger kitchen  or perhaps ‘kneading’ a bigger dining room to show off your master culinary pieces...

The past 12 months have been a busy and exciting time for Pinkertons, not only have we opened a brand new office in Comber Square, the team have also dedicated their time to raising  money for Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke. 

In September 2015 Pinkertons entered into a corporate partnership with the more than worthy cause and monies were raised through charity bag packs, coffee mornings and sporting events throughout the year.

Breaking News - Online Estate Agents Lose 50% of Marketing Exposure For Their Clients' Homes In Northern Ireland!

Posted on Wednesday, 06 April 2016 in Local News by Victoria Pinkerton

From the 1st April 2016 only Estate Agents that have a high street branch can advertise on Property Pal!!

This means that online agents, or those who do not operate from a town centre address cannot use one of the major web portals in Northern Ireland to advertise your home. Property Pal made this innovative decision in early March and informed all agents, including online agents of the change before the end of March 2016.

Community Spirit

Posted on Monday, 07 December 2015 in Local News by Peter Morrison

Community Spirit was on full view on Thursday 26th November at the annual Comber Fair In The Square. With so much negativity in the world recently it was a joy to see people being supportive of, and participating in, the local community. A great night was had by all.

Although being a new business to the area (a stranger if you will), the people of Comber and the surrounding area could not have made Pinkertons feel more welcome. The local community were free giving of...
