What our housing & residential clients say about us

“We have been very glad to recommend Barker this year and hope that we are able to provide plenty more leads in the future. I certainly feel your professional approach has been well-received by our clients.”


“Thank both you for your professionalism, mindfulness and care when carrying out the survey I required for an insurance claim….. Sadly, these traits are rarely found in the industry nowadays so were greatly appreciated and I will have no hesitation of recommending you to anyone requiring a survey in the future.”

Brickcroft Hoppit, Essex. Mrs Galloppi/private client

“I wanted to write to thank you for your support throughout the design and build of our workshop extension. To say we are happy with the result is an understatement! The building is impressive, to say the least, and I never bore of looking out of my 7-metre-high window across Essex countryside! Thank you for helping us manage the minor hiccups professionally and speedily.”

Jonathan Wood

“Thank you very, very much for all your help. I certainly could not have done it without you.”


“Just wanted to say how happy we are with the two building reports we recently received from Barker. Unfortunately, the first property fell through, but we are now safely installed in our new home, working through some of the issues that your report had pointed out as ‘essential’. We hope we will not be moving house in the near future, but if we do, we will definitely be returning to Barker.”

Private client (Sarah Gorry), Kelsale

“Thank you for achieving the amazing outcome that you did.”
