About Barrows & Forrester
Growth mentality – local focus
Barrows & Forrester estate agency was developed with one aim – providing the expertise you’d expect from a nationwide brand, with the same level of top-quality personal customer service that only a local business can deliver.
Established in 2015 by property expert and developer James Forrester, we are a full-service estate agency dedicated to supporting homeowners, landlords and property investors with their portfolio. We provide buying, selling and management expertise across the West Midlands, from south of Birmingham in Edgbaston to the north as far as Lichfield and Fradley. By maintaining local offices managed by staff who know the areas personally, we can provide real information to prospective purchasers and tenants, making us the ideal advocates for your property.
Managing Director James Forrester has been involved in the property industry for over 20 years across the UK and Europe. Alongside Barrows & Forrester estate agency, he is also the founder of Stripe Property Group developing specialist purpose-built accommodation and luxury residential properties in Newcastle, Lichfield and Birmingham. James regularly features in national media, as well as running Birmingham Property News and Lichfield Property News – an online media outlet.
Community turns the place that we live into the place we love
At Barrows & Forrester we are as proactive in building and supporting our local community as we are in caring for our customers. We know that community matters and we aim to give back to the places we work, and we live.
Barrows & Forrester are proud to work with a number of local charities. We also support children’s football teams in Fradley, Sutton Coldfield and west Birmingham.
