      Relocation Agent Network
      image cannot be displayed
      Barbers has been independently selected by Cartus, the premier provider of global relocation services, as their exclusive recommended Relocation Agent. As your local Relocation Agent, we work together with around 600 fellow Relocation Agent offices across England, Scotland and Wales, showcasing your property to increased buyer activity and we will also help you with your onward property search wherever that may be. Relocation Agent Network is the new name for the national network of independent estate agents, formerly known as Home Sale Network. The new name redefines the Network's focus as an organisation of relocation specialists and reflects the scope of services that each member offers their customers. No longer just an estate agency organisation selling homes, members are a network of Relocation Agent specialists. Simon Dodds from Barbers Estate Agents, Shrewsbury's local Relocation Agent commented, "a successful house move is not just about the property itself. Important lifestyle factors are part of the decision; such as the up and coming areas, school catchments, local facilities like sports, shops, restaurants and real commuting times and can make a huge difference to the success of your move." "Through our membership with a national network of Relocation Agents, we are able to provide expert local advice to our customers, wherever they may be relocating. Even if you're planning to buy a property outside Shrewsbury, we can contact that area's local Relocation Agent, who can provide the same high standard of services as we do. If you are thinking of moving why not give is a call and experience the relocation difference for yourself." Richard Tucker, Managing Director of Relocation Agent Network stated since, 'Since 1994 Home Sale Network has set a benchmark for independent estate agency services. Times change and our former name no longer reflected the comprehensive range of services our agents provide beyond that of home sales. It was a natural extension to channel this expertise via our Relocation gents, to individual customers.'

      Energy Performance Cetificates
      image cannot be displayed
      The Government is committed to comply with EU Directive 2002, which aims to promote improvements in the energy performance of buildings. It is a legal requirement for all properties being marketed for Sale or Rent to have a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). This has to be made available for potential purchasers and tenants upon request. How do I get an EPC? At Barbers we can arrange an EPC for you. This not only shows the current energy efficiency level of your property in the form of a coloured bar chart (similar to that seen on electrical appliances,) it also indicates how you can improve your rating. To arrange your EPC or for answers to any specific questions complete the form below or alternatively call your nearest branch.

      • Seller Testimonial

        Incredibly Smooth Transaction
        I am just e-mailing you to thank you for the incredibly smooth transaction of letting our new rural cottage in South Shropshire. To enable our move you have also found us an excellent tenant for our own property in Wem. From the moment we saw our cottage we knew we would want to stay a very long time and the professional way you dealt with our case impressed my wife and I and gave us the confidence to agree for Barbers to manage the rental of our own property. Within 2 weeks you found a suitable tenant and we are now keeping everything crossed that everybody finds joy out of the arrangement for years to come. So far, even when problems have occurred Barbers have dealt with things promptly, professionally and with understanding. I have no worries in recommending your services to anyone looking to rent or let their property in Shropshire. Other agents we crossed paths with in our search to find a country hideaway seemed slow to understand our needs, treated us impersonally and at times rather snobbishly. With Barbers, we only found warmth and a desire to help coupled with an excellent sense of humour. Many thanks once again for your service. Mr & Mrs W, Shrewsbury
      • Seller Testimonial

        We'd never have lasted the course without you
