Since then he has lived in the United Kingdom, Norway, Spain, France, Switzerland and the USA. Interestingly, he spent most of 2016 in Hong Kong advising on a project for a family office, which took him to 15 cities across mainland China.

Alan joined our Washington Depot Brokerage following his purchase of a lakefront property in Sherman, CT. He specializes in waterfront properties representing sellers and buyers, with his first-hand experience. As NYC dwellers, both he and his Parisienne Wife were drawn to the natural beauty and tranquility of Northwestern CT and enjoy their love of water sports on Candlewood Lake. Alan is familiar with the corresponding demands and requirements of second-home owners. He works within the time constraints involved when viewing on a day trip and avoids the irritation of viewing properties which don’t meet the specified criteria!

On a personal level, he has been a buyer, seller, investor, landlord, tenant and developer in England, France and the United States. This combination of practical, detailed knowledge and legal acumen is a powerful force when negotiating on behalf of his clients. Alan’s firm, intuitive advice is delivered in a positive and reassuring manner, which has led to repeat business and satisfied clients.

Alan has spent two decades in the Real Estate sector as a Lawyer and a Real Estate agent, successfully completing multi-faceted transactions, identifying planning issues, realizing development potential and solving complex disputes. He has a proven track record in maximizing the value of his discerning clients’ real estate portfolios. 

In 2006 he founded a law firm in London and has many interesting tales to tell about managing a start-up; surviving the financial downturn of 2008, and growing the business to a team of 40+ lawyers. He sits on the non-executive board of several companies in London and Frankfurt, including some publicly listed. His connections are unparalleled through his membership of various Irish/British/American business & networking organizations and he served as a committee member of the American Bar Association’s International section in 2014.

Alan was honored to be admitted as a Freeman of the city of London in 2016. Socially, he is a proud member of the Royal Enclosure at Ascot Racecourse in England and the Lansdowne Club in London, which has reciprocity with the Ivy League clubs in NY and CT.

A University of Law (London) graduate, Alan’s academic achievements also include a Master of Law post-graduate degree awarded by Queen’s University Belfast. He graduated from University College Dublin in 1999 with a Bachelor of Law degree.

Licensed in New York and Connecticut.

Wouterus van Middendorp & Tom Polum

Alan O Daugherty went above and beyond in helping sell my house! He was diligent and a real professional all around. I would recommend him highly!

Joseph Keneally

Our family had to sell a house that was quite a distance from us. We interviewed Alan and agreed he was the person who would listen to our needs and appreciate our situation. We weren't wrong - he was professional, sensitive, well informed about the local market, understood our situation and kept us to to date through the whole process. Also, a really nice guy!

Liza Drake

When I had to unexpectedly sell my sisters house, I chose Alan as my realtor, not only because of his explanation of the local market and his marketing & advertising strategies he planned to use, but also because of his friendly and proactive attitude. Because I lived away, I felt very comfortable with Alan managing the showings and day to day requirements of the house. When an unexpected legal problem added a bit of time to the sale, his patience and optimistic attitude were a great help. The house successfully sold for a but more than expected, and during the pricess I never regretted having Alan represent me. I found him to be well informed, involved, friendly and proactive. I was fortunate. 

Mark Schofield

Alan was fantastic to work with. Great EQ. Available at all times. Explained everything to me as a first-time homebuyer. I got the house, didn't I?!? I think that speaks wonders to his ability to advise properly and support me through the process. I'll work with him in the future 100%. Only cash offers next time ;)

Greta Murphy

It was a pleasure working with Alan on our recent home purchase. He was hard-working, responsive, honest, knowledgeable, personable, and patient with us. In the current challenging market these qualities were super important and proved invaluable while navigating our search and purchase. We met a decent number of real-estate agents when we first started looking. Alan was by far the best for us and we feel lucky to have found him. We wouldn’t hesitate to use him again and strongly recommend him to others.

Kevin Wheeler

Alan got me a great price in a record time for the property I was listing with him. He is very transparent and personable, and was always available for my questions and any follow-up items throughout the deal. I highly recommend him.

Magdalena Drag

Fantastic realtor! Alan's knowledge of the UK and US real estate markets were invaluable to me and my family when we relocated from London. He is very professional, super responsive and managed our international real estate requirements with ease. He helped us to find our lovely new home in an amazing location. We simply can't thank him enough.

Oonagh Browne

Alan was an absolute pleasure to work with. He took the time to answer all of my questions and calls, and he made finding and buying a house an easy process. I highly recommend working with him!

Joe Theshark

I worked with Alan both as referral partner back in London, UK and privately through number of property transactions around the world, namely in UK, Spain, USA and Singapore. Alan is both personal and professional in his dealings. I had the pleasure of transacting with Alan through sale of my own own house in Weybridge, UK and Jacksonville, Florida. Alan also helped me find a contact through his Sotheby's network in Singapore for our rental property need and connected to great property lawyer in Spain when I needed to understand the legal aspects of property sale in Spain. You really can't go wrong if you choose to work with this Irishman, he's absolute pleasure to work with and has enormous network of professional contacts that he can reach out when needed.

Hannu Lehmusvaara

Alan is an outstanding agent from another agent's perspective. No ego, excellent communication and a delight to work with!

Rick Distel

It was my first-time working with Alan. He was professional and helped the transition run smoothly. We kept the lines of communication open. It was a pleasure. Cheers!

Susan O'Dell

Alan was extremely attentive and clear through the whole process, and his consistency and reliability was so appreciated! We will use him for all of our CT realty needs!

Nathan Johnson & Joe Gleason

Alan was very helpful and diligent throughout the process. He found a good number of homes for us to look at and helped secure the property and navigate the closing. He was particularly good at liaising with the seller's broker to secure a price reduction at the end of the process. Alan was always available, prepared to explain any steps, and work with our schedule. I would definitely recommend Alan and the team. First class.
