The reason for our Estate Agency’s success over the past nine years is the fact that it works in partnership with our in house conveyancing department.

The expertise of our conveyancing department is demonstrated by the service records of our directors and this was the reason for our celebration.

Keith Jones has worked for Barrow & Cook for more than 40 years, and specialises in commercial conveyancing and is well respected by local business men and women. Keith started his career in 1973 as a trainee solicitor and has become one of St Helens most experienced Solicitors. Keith said: “When I started in the profession you didn’t specialise as happens now, you could be faced with defending an armed robber or selling a house in Newtown. Pilkington were the largest employers in the area and the xollieries were all working. Things have changed drastically but the friendship and camaraderie of other solicitors in St Helens has been something I greatly value and as a local lad the St Helens sense of humour is unbeatable.

“What a celebration. 40 years, 30 years and 25 years these are the anniversaries our Directors are celebrating this year at Barrow & Cook. Let’s toast to the past and look forward to a bright future together.”

Keith Powell has worked for Barrow & Cook for more than 30 years and specialises in family law, he is the only family mediator in St Helens. Keith says ‘There have been many changes in the legal profession during my career. However Barrow & Cook’s commitment to serving the legal needs of the community of St Helens has remained an absolute constant. I enjoy working for the people of St Helens. I have always found them to be honest hardworking and decent people’

Andrew Cropper has worked at Barrow & Cook for more than 25 years, and specialises in Probate Practice and combines this with domestic conveyancing.  He is the branch manager of our estate agency. Having spent the entirety of his career helping St Helens folk selling, buying and re-mortgaging their properties there are few who can rival his particularly honed expertise in the local property market. ‘The market has had its highs and lows but whatever the conditions, providing a professional service to our wonderful clients gives us all a great feeling of pride and satisfaction.’

Following Champagne and canapes in the office the whole team were whisked away to carry on the celebrations and party the night away.

We are extremely proud of all our dedicated team. We have many staff members with significantly more than 10 years service.

Which other Estate Agent can say that their clients can walk into their offices and get an instant update on their sale or purchase?

Here at Barrow & Cook – we can and we are happy to help.

Having the opportunity to go out for a celebratory meal and let our hair down once in a while is great for team building which has huge benefits for all of our clients.
