Property Consultancy Group, Barnsdales, has recorded its busiest year since the company was founded over a century ago.
The Doncaster-based business which operates nationwide providing a range of residential and commercial property services including property management, lettings and building surveyance, says it has achieved record turnover, with revenues almost tripling in five years.
While Barnsdales Group as a whole experienced growth across multiple service lines, Barnsdales Ltd, and, specifically, its valuations team saw the biggest increase in demand during the last year. This was due to increased interest in panel appointments in response to the increase in professional indemnity insurance, as well as the withdrawal of other agents from the valuation market.
Managing Director Jason Barnsdale said: “I’m extremely proud of the Barnsales team and the way their expertise, commitment to clients and great teamwork have helped us to achieve another record year. It’s been a tough and unpredictable few years for every business, but that’s not to say there haven’t been areas for growth and we’ve been able to adapt and capitalise on these very successfully.
“Our facilities management company Barnsdales FM has taken on some fantastic new work including the iPort logistics hub and the HQ of the UK’s largest rail freight company DB Cargo. Meanwhile, Regional Property Auctioneers has moved to an entirely online bidding system throughout the pandemic. Barnsdales itself is also going from strength to strength with a nationwide team of property consultants.”
Since 2016/17, turnover rose by 178 per cent across the Barnsdales Group as a whole, while turnover at Barnsdales Ltd grew by 14 per cent in the last year, despite the pandemic.
Barnsdales Group has offices in Doncaster, Sheffield, Manchester, Lincoln, London and Cirencester and has a team of more than 60 property professionals.
As well as Barnsdales chartered surveyors and property consultants, the Barnsdales Group includes facilities management firm Barnsdales FM and Regional Property Auctioneers.
