Our commitment to you

Our commitment to you

Barrows & Forrester was founded in 2015 by property developer James Forrester. As an agency we believe in working with and improving our community. Our aim is to demonstrate that being an independent agency offers you far greater benefits that working with faceless national entities. That’s why we were awarded the Excellence in Real Estate Award 2020 at the Signature Awards Midlands for our attention to detail with our clients, our community work, and delivering a service like no other local estate agency.
