Barkers Estate & Letting Agent

Barkers Estate & Lettings Agents

Nicholas Humphreys also trades as Barkers estate & letting agents in Leicester. Barkers have been selling and letting property in the local Leicester housing market since 1985. Nicholas Humphreys purchased Barkers in 2006 and are proud to continue trading under this well known and respected name.

Our agency has two branches, one on Queens Road in the heart of Clarendon Park and the second on Braunstone Gate in the city's West End.

Our renowned success is based on personal service and attention to detail. Landlords and people wishing to sell their property who would like to place their business with us are welcomed to take advantage of our free valuation service.

Property Sales

Our dedicated sales team have a wealth of experience throughout Leicester and specialise in the Clarendon Park, Stoneygate and West End areas. We would be delighted to offer a free sales valuation to clients who are interested in selling their property with us.

With two offices in Leicester and further outlets in Derby and Burton Upon Trent we have the ability to market your property across the East Midlands.

At Barkers we believe in the traditional methods of successful estate agency. Our valuers are experienced in valuing property all over Leicester and the surrounding areas and we pride ourselves on giving realistic valuations yet still achieving the best possible price for our clients.

We maintain an up to date mailing list of 'hot' buyers who have had their finances verified and are ready to proceed with a purchase. Over the last couple of years even in a very modest market this technique of 'matching' clients to properties as they come onto the market has resulted in a huge number of our properties being sold on a best and final offer sealed bid basis. This process is time consuming and labour intensive for the agent which is why most other agents shun this technique normally opting to grasp the first reasonable offer. Sales at Barkers on a sealed bid basis are a weekly occurrence and our results prove to us that our vendors achieve the best possible price for their Properties. Instruct Barkers to sell your home and you will receive excellent service and the highest price for the sale of your property.

Barkers are proud of the service they offer to landlords. We have built a broad knowledge of the needs of both landlords and tenants in the areas we operate i.e. Leicester, Clarendon Park, Stoneygate, Knighton, West End.

We currently have a large portfolio of landlords under management with both student and professional properties and many more landlords who repeatedly benefit from our let only service. We have two offices in Leicester with our other office being situated at 38-44 Braunstone Gate. This means we have an unparalled level of exposure to the Leicester student market at both campus centres.

Our aim is simple: to offer landlords peace of mind, maintaining the highest income levels, advising and keeping up to date with relevant compliance issues. Advising on the maintenance needs of the property in order to ensure continued quality lets. To build and maintain good relations with both landlords and tenants.
