Market Drayton is a traditional market town in the North Shropshire countryside, situated on the River Tern, between Shrewsbury and Stoke-on-Trent, with good links across Shropshire and Staffordshire. With origins dating back to before the Domesday book the modern buildings in the town centre mix with fine examples of 17th century black and white constructions. Barbers Market Drayton Branch can easily be found on Maer Lane opposite Morrison's, only 20 minutes from Junction 15 on the M6.

What agent could do to change your mind?
Agent fees have to be there as of every other fee we pay in life but i do feel charging to pay on debit card is a little unfair. I also feel that 300 pound should be the fixed price instead of then another 60 for a second application.

As a person who values loyalty, it was a big step for me to move away from my current agent to help me find tenants for my properties. I felt that I had to do something as voids were taking too long to fill and I didnt feel my long standing current agent had the resources to be effective. I cautiously tried Barbers and have been amazed at the turnaround, with viewings and lettings happening significantly faster than with my previous agent. I get regular feedback and if a property is not snapped...

We bought our flat in February and did lots of work on the flat to get it up to a good standard for rental, Jenni found a tenant with a couple of weeks and so far so good as he has paid on time, or earlier on a couple of occasions!" Thanks for finding us a tenant, he is due to move out in April 2016 so we will be back to ask Jenni to find us another one. Thanks again....

We bought and sold with Barbers and everyone we dealt was very helpful. Most of our dealings were with Colette and nothing was too much trouble for her. She did things in one afternoon that had taken days for the solicitor to do! We were very grateful. Donna was excellent too. Always willing to help with a smile on her face!...

Professional estate agents, I used their local knowlage and experience before I bought properties to rent out, on their advice I have purchased 3 local properties to rent out and we have always had good tenants in them. Barbers source my tenants, not the cheapest in town but you get what you pay for, if you ask professional people / companies looking for properties to rent they always say they choose Barbers first. They have built up a good reputation in Shropshire, you don't do this over night....

Estate Agents get a bad name, and I've dealt with a few spurious ones in my time. However, Barbers (and in particular Clara) was a pleasure to work with. The entire singing-on process was swift & we were kept up to date at all times. It's early days, and Barbers may not live up to their own excellent standards they've set themselves, but at the moment I am very happy with them...

My long standing client had to leave my property. The Staff at Barbers were very efficient in sorting out all the repairs etc that had to be done prior to new rental. They were excellent in finding new clients as fast as was possible. I have used Barbers as my agents for 14 years now I wouldn't consider changing as they have been excellent in looking after my property....

From the first time I contacted Barbers, Clara was exceptional and professional at all times. She worked above and beyond my expectations to enable me to secure a tenancy very quickly following marital breakdown due to domestic abuse. Whatever Clara said she would do has been done and I would highly recommend Barbers to everyone. I have nothing but positive experiences and have been overwhelmed by Clara's support to enable me to be happy and safe....

From start to finish Barbers stood out from the competition. Their service is prompt and efficient and like so many others they don't just tell me what I want to hear. The board was up within 24 hours and the property was on the Internet in 48 hours with photos. Would definitely use again and would recommend Barbers without hesitation....

We were originally looking to buy in the area and met Gail at the Barbers office - her knowledge of Loggerheads and the surrounding areas is second to none and she was honest with her opinions on everything we asked about the local area - unlike another agent who didn\'t know the area at all and doesn\'t have staff who live there either! We then decided to rent whilst settling in and Hannah in the Lettings team was again an enormous help in finding us the right property - we cannot recommend Bar...

Having not bought or sold a property for many years we were delighted with the way in which Gail and her team looked after us. They helped us with every step including our own sale when problems arose - Garry showed us around the house and was extremely knowledgeable about the local area. Nothing was ever too much trouble for anybody we ever spoke to and we would recommend Barbers to anybody who wants to buy a property in their area - especially if you haven\'t moved for a while!...
