Message from our MD
Welcome to Barrows & Forrester. When I launched the company my aim was to offer a bespoke service to clients and developers that truly met their needs. Too many times in the past I’ve seen developments not represented appropriately and buyers and investors left to their own devices, trying to figure out what they should do next. This is something that I wanted to remedy and, as a result, our focus is firmly placed on putting the client at the centre of everything we do, ensuring that developers have a dependable partner they can work with and buyers and investors receive trusted advice at all times.
With over 16 years’ experience under my belt in the property industry both here in the UK and overseas, I’ve long held the belief that you must be passionate about property to truly care about it. At Barrows and Forrester, we live, eat, drink and breathe Birmingham, Manchester & Newcastle property and this passion comes across when we deal with our clients.
Birmingham, Manchester & Newcastle have come a long way over the last 10 years and the sheer amount of investment and development that has taken place in both cities has changed the property landscape.
I’ve spent a lot of my life in Manchester, Birmingham & Newcastle and have seen these cities change, develop and become the dynamic and ambitious cities that they are now. I spent a lot of my teenage years in Manchester due to my dad working at Manchester General Hospital so, despite being born in Newcastle and being a proud Geordie, I guess you can say that I grew up in Manchester. One of my abiding memories of growing up in the city is seeing the start of the Metro and, over the years, I have watched it become the lifeblood of the city’s transport infrastructure and at the heart of all the new developments.
My long career in property eventually took me to Birmingham and this is now where I live and where my children go to school. Equally, from living and working in Birmingham I’ve seen it transform dramatically for the better. Birmingham is a city that is undergoing a significant makeover and it’s exciting to be at the centre of what’s happening.
Before I promote a property development it’s important that I believe in the area and, having kept a close eye on the growth in high quality city centre apartments and purpose-built student accommodation across Birmingham, Manchester & Newcastle for a long time now, I believe that they represent some of the best opportunities in the property market in the whole of the UK.
It’s important to me that the team at Barrows & Forrester share my passion for all things property so we heavily invest in the training and development of our people and we are constantly reviewing our processes to ensure that they are aligned to what you need.
When you work with us we spend time getting to know you and understand what your goals are. We then tailor our service to meet these goals, advising on the best opportunities, responding to your queries quickly and really listening to what you want to achieve.
I want Barrows & Forrester to be the first company you think of when you need property advice. Openness, honesty, and integrity are the hallmarks of our approach and I firmly believe that by building long-standing relationships with our clients, we all see the benefits.
Take time to explore our website and if you have any feedback or I can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to give me a call.
