Humber estate agent builds £7.5m property listings only months after launch

A North Lincolnshire estate agent says it has big ambitions having built a £7.5m portfolio of listings.

Barratt-Needham & Clark Limited was launched earlier this year, based out of Barton-upon-Humber, following a kickstart grant from UKSE. The firm is the work of Graham Barratt-Needham and longstanding friend and associate Diana Clark, who is an experienced estate agent.

Having returned after eight years spent in Spain, Mr Barratt-Needham’s was introduced to the industry having purchased property of his own and landing a part-time position at agency Keller Williams. Using the UKSE funding, the firm created artwork for sale boards, business cards and promotional leaflets for surrounding areas.

Barratt-Needham & Clark, which now employs two photographers, says it specialises in seeking out the distinctive points of each home, creating unique listing photography with personally set-up houseware, and videos featuring anything from pianist solos to quirky hedgehog houses.

Mr Needham said: “I didn’t expect to fall into the property sector, it has really changed my outlook and what is now a massive passion of mine is able to bring joy to others. Looking to the future, we would ideally have a viewing agent onboarded and potentially look at going into long-term rental properties.

“We are incredibly grateful for the grant which has allowed us to boost our advertising power regionally.”

Steve Lyon, area manager at UKSE, added: “Grahame’s achievements after just three months are commendable. It is truly impressive to witness the company’s success following funding from UKSE, and we are proud to support Grahame on his venture, we wish him all the best for the future.”

UKSE also provides loan and equity finance of up to £1.5m to growing existing companies, particularly those creating jobs.
