About Us

Barlow Property Consultancy is dedicated to providing expert and uncomplicated advice in the increasingly complex world of property. We are proud to say that within our client base we have Local Authorities, Housing Associations and National Companies as well as large and small property owners and tenants. Whatever our client’s background we offer the same quality of service to  achieve their  goals.



Stephen Barlow founded Barlow Property Consultancy in 2001 after a successful career in Local Authority and private practice. Stephen is a Chartered Surveyor with 20 years experience in the property industry. Having worked in both the public and private sectors, Stephen has a practical and invaluable knowledge of the workings of local planning authorities and building control. Stephen’s experience in the private sector has fine-tuned his understanding of market forces and commercial factors that affect property owners and tenants alike.

Being from a farming background, Stephen enjoys the outdoor life and takes a keen interest in countryside and rural issues. He is married to Gail and they have two young children.


Gail Barlow is the practice manager and is often the first point of contact for clients. Gail trained as a teacher and taught in Primary School for 5 years but found the pull of the business too strong to resist. Along with a splendid sense of humour Gail keeps the office on track and organised.


Denis Bird is the practice’s third surveyor and most experienced having spent 48 years in the property industry. Denis has worked for various local authorities and more lately as an independent consultant. Denis has a keen interest in assembling development opportunities and has wide and varied local connections.



Complimentary Disciplines….


We work in affiliation with other professionals who possess complementary skills such as planning consultants, architects and structural engineers. Therefore, we are able to enlist and coordinate the services of other experts if it is felt that it will be to the client’s advantage.
