REA Halnon Humphreys Case Study

How REA Halnon Humphreys made Landlord and Tenant Applications Faster, More Secure, and GDPR Compliant


REA Halnon Humphreys is a leading estate agency serving clients throughout Wexford, Wicklow, and Dublin. They are a young, fresh, and contemporary company with a mission to assist all their clients, whether buying, selling, or letting a property in an efficient and innovative manner.


As is the case for many companies in the property sector, REA Halnon Humphreys faced a challenge around tenant document and information collection. A shortage in rental housing meant that once a new rental property was advertised, the team would get inundated with enquiries – creating a lot of time-consuming admin tasks such as collecting tenant documents and dealing with enquiries via email and phone.

They faced similar challenges in onboarding new landlords and vendors – and wanted to find a way to accelerate these processes in a secure and GDPR compliant way.
