Frank Harris & Company

DSC01119Frank Harris was the first estate agent to set up in the Barbican area and specialise in Barbican flat sales. Frank sold the business in 2000 and it is now part of the JSS Group with offices across London, so Frank Harris & Company can draw on a lot of group resources including their Central Magazine. The Frank Harris brand has offices in the Barbican, Bloomsbury and on the South Bank.

Tina Evans, who runs the Barbican branch, originally worked with Frank Harris, and she has vast experience of the Barbican market. Ian Swale runs the letting department. The office is perfectly located on the corner of Long Lane and they also have a small office, mainly used for displaying property details, below Willoughby House.

Tina secured the commission from Redrow to sell the flats in Blake Tower, which are currently available.

When I was still practising as a solicitor, my firm Barretts Solicitors probably did more sales and purchases of Barbican properties with Frank Harris & Company as the selling agents than with any other firm. It didn’t matter how big or small the property was, Tina was absolutely committed to winning for the sellers and getting the deal across the line.

Frank Harris & Company is one of the three firms I recommend. The others are Hamilton Brooks and Scott City.
