Despite the continued turbulence of the property sector, the Barnsdales Group has achieved record turnover, with revenues almost tripling in five years.

Founded in Doncaster, Barnsdales Group has been supporting the property sector since 1905 when it was founded by the great-grandfather of current MD, Jason Barnsdale.

Operating nationwide, the group provides a range of residential and commercial property services including property management, lettings and building surveyance.

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.

Jason 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.

"Barnsdales itself is also going from strength to strength with a nationwide team of property consultants.

“Running a family business is a responsibility that can feel very personal, so I’m especially pleased with what we’ve achieved over the last five years. I’m particularly proud of everything we’ve done since the start of the pandemic and I want to say a big thank you to our team and to our clients who’ve put their trust in us over this period.”
