Mark Barnett

With over 30 years of experience in the property sector, I have a wealth of knowledge, experience and understanding in all areas of estate agency. I know my patch of LE16 and LE17 extremely well, having grown up in South Leicestershire and have a real passion for the luxury homes of our Fine & Country clients.

From initial conversations and valuations, to sales and completion, I pride myself in offering unrivalled levels of service to each of my clients whether they are looking to buy or sell. I offer a fully bespoke service, really listening and seeking to understand the needs and wants of each and every client. Communication is key and you can be sure that your high expectations will be met in every way.

I have worked in many areas in the UK (including over 15 years in London running my own successful estate agency) and have a wealth of expertise available to all of my clients, whatever your needs. Now back living in a beautiful South Leicestershire village not far from where I grew up, that local knowledge continues to develop and grow – it’s all in the details.

If colleagues, friends and family were to describe me, words like hard-working, adventurous, experienced, confident, transparent and customer-centric are used. As a valuer and agent, my personal service is honest and top notch. Nothing is too much trouble.

I am a keen golfer and photographer with a love for walking. I can often be found out and about, exploring the local area with my Hungarian Vizsla, Winter. This love of adventure can be seen in my choices of holiday destinations too. From remote areas of Africa to Everest Base Camp, there is a challenge or extreme side to every trip. Nottingham Forrest is my beloved team, having supported them since being a young boy – my great grandfather was once a player there. Other areas of interest include a huge passion for wildlife. I have volunteered for many wildlife projects and charities, including running the 2013 London Marathon for the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation.

When it comes to career highlights and success stories, I have
many, of all shapes and sizes. The enjoyment I get from my role being one of them, the happiness I create for my clients is another. Owning my own South West London estate agency was hugely rewarding and the experience I gained from those years invaluable. It’s not about awards or accolades, however – it’s all about you, my clients. Your successes are my successes, your joys are mine and I am there to support and advise you on every step of your journey.

I was drawn to the Fine & Country team for several reasons: Our brand is strong and full of opportunity. Flexibility and autonomy are great strengths of mine and fully supported by the company. High end, luxury homes and properties are a passion – this is more than a job and the rewards have been countless. I use the Fine & Country network to its full advantage. Whether it is through marketing your property, finding buyers or increasing sales potential, I will find the honest, highest price for each home and work tirelessly to make it happen. My extensive sales record shows how I leverage my large network to find the right buyer for each home, making the process as easy and simple as possible for everyone involved.

Every client and property is different, every buyer and seller unique. My service is always bespoke, with collaboration at its heart. There are no hard and fast rules – everything is tailored to fit the way each client wishes to work. I work hard to understand the best way to showcase each property in its best light, knowing and understanding my buyer’s needs in order to find the best possible new home for them. There is no hard sell here, just honest support, knowledge and experience.

At the start of each relationship with a client a bespoke, collaboratively-produced checklist is made. These instructions are followed, met and exceeded, providing that top level of service I am recognized for. I know the luxury market very well, and being a country boy at heart I truly understand my clients’ needs for that perfect location. I am passionate, motivated and knows the property business inside out. You’re in incredibly safe hands.

I learn and develop every day - knowing that no one knows it all is a lesson in itself. I follow my own advice by keeping honest and transparent, and continually developing my knowledge of my area, my prices, my product and my competition. Each challenge is embraced and met with that understanding and confidence that is only gained from many years of experience. It is a pleasure to be invited into people’s lovely homes, one that never fails to go unnoticed – I feel very lucky to be part of the luxury property market.

No two agents or agencies work in the same way. The keys to my professional success are knowledge, experience and communication.
