Our company has been providing professional valuation services for over 30 years and over that time we have received numerous expressions of appreciation from our clients and recommendation from our fellow professionals. Now that we are also offering estate agency services the plaudits from a new band of clients can be added to the list and some of these (not all) are shown here below. We hope that one day yours may also be included.

“I have known and worked with Barry for over 10 years in the London property market. Barry is a consummate professional with a deep understanding of all technical aspects of property valuation and an invaluable amount of experience in the industry. He is also extremely personable and it is always a pleasure dealing with him. ”
Nilloosha Ponnuthurai - Partner, Taylor Rose Solicitors
I have worked with Barry now for nearly 6 years and my clients and I have consistently received on point advice from the onset. As a property agency, Barry’ team actively facilitate the transaction as they demonstrate an understanding of the property, the market, the legal framework and the conveyancing process to assist both the buyer and seller to meet their needs. Barry and his team are highly responsive and helpful to move instructions very quickly and get the best results for the client. I enjoy working with Barry as his breadth of experience ensures that he provides not only the advice the client has sought but the wider orientation that they require to make informed decisions on all their options.
When acting as a specialist leasehold enfranchisement valuer Barry’s experience and pragmatic approach has delivered realistic and sensible outcomes, often avoiding costly disputes or Tribunal applications.

“Katy has been the most helpful proactive person and we couldn’t have got the sale over the line without her. She goes above and beyond I would recommend Katy and Barry to anyone. They are amazing thank you so much for your services and help along the way.”
“ Just a quick note to say thank you very very much for your help and support through what was a long and difficult process. I would not have coped as well as I did without your expertise, knowledge and the professional way in which you handled everyone involved. However, more important to me is that I felt you were there every step along the way and you understood what I was going through. It is so nice in this day and age that you can meet a professional person who seems to be genuine and wants to give their best to their client and treats their client with respect and manners.”
“May I just say with all of the smoke and mirrors in this tribunal you are the only one that I think has acted with utmost professional integrity and the highest standards.”
Mrs L Parker
“Many thanks for your prompt undertaking of this survey and also for the clarity and ease of understanding of your report. If only more documents were produced in this manner.”
“I learned very quickly how tactical and convoluted the whole lease extension process can be. Had it not been for the expert assistance of Barry and his team in thwarting my landlord’s plans I’ve no doubt that I would have been taken to the cleaners but happily that was skilfully avoided. I would definitely recommend Barry and his team to anyone.”
Tom Davies FRICS - Bradleys Surveyors
I have known Barry now for some 25 years when we were colleagues in one of the largest estate agency and surveying practices in the West Country. It was when we were starting to come out of the recession of the early 1990s and it was both a challenging and exciting time. And looking back on it there were many changes going on in the industry itself. Barry left to take on the bright lights of London, but we have since kept up a close professional contact. Barry is highly valued as a colleague and extremely knowledgeable and forward thinking in what is now a more difficult market, and someone who can be relied upon to produce results.

“From the very beginning and throughout Barry and Katy were amazing. The communication about viewings and feedback was excellent and Katy was always great at reassuring when the process was not going as quickly as hoped. The final few weeks were very stressful but both Katy and Barry went above and beyond to sort any problems out, dealing with my buyer and multiple solicitors, keeping in contact at every point. They would be my first choice if I decided to move again.”
“I can’t remember if I said a very big thank you to you both for your help with my lease extension. If it wasn’t for your advice in the first place when it went a bit wrong I would not have been able to pursue … I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone that needs assistance as I think you are brilliant.”
Ian & Chantal Condron
“Barry Passmore & Associates were highly recommended by our solicitor to handle the probate valuation and lease extension of our late mother’s flat in Barnes. We were so impressed by the way they dealt with both that we asked them to sell the flat as well.
They handled all three with professionalism and great expertise. They explained everything clearly and took us through each stage promptly. We built up a good professional relationship with Barry and Katy and very quickly came to trust their advice implicitly.
They handled everything in a very friendly but hugely professional manner.
We achieved the sale price were aiming for and would have no hesitation at all in recommending their services.
With thanks, again
Ian & Chantal”
Craig & Steph Wilson
“Our recent move was one of the most stressful experiences of our lives with problems with solicitors/housing developers etc. It was a really difficult move. Throughout the whole time Katy/Barry were nothing but helpful, friendly and efficient. They chased up every step of the way and communicated with us brilliantly. They did an amazing job throughout all the problems and hold ups. We would not hesitate to recommend them.”
Connie & Darryn
“We cannot thank Katy and Barry from Barry Passmore Associates enough for their hard work and dedication to make sure that buying our first property was as smooth as possible. Katy was friendly, diligent, reliable and always willing to follow up on outstanding questions with the vendors and solicitors up and down the chain even when she didn’t have to. Katy was a total pleasure to work with, very responsive, always professional and I would highly recommend Barry Passmore Associates to anyone.”

“I decided after 17 long emotional years to move house it was a huge decision but I found from start to finish with constant support from Katy at Barry Passmore & Associates it was the best decision by far and couldn’t recommend her strongly enough thank you for everything above and beyond professional at every stage throughout the process.”
Mr & Mrs Smith
“Pioneers of modern Estate Agencies. When we told friends about our decision to use a London based Estate Agent to sell our property, they were more than a little surprised. The less than helpful communication, absolute mediocrity and a feeling of “lets sell and run with the commission”, experienced when dealing with local agents, made this an easy choice. From the initial meeting to discuss the value of our property, we were at ease with Katy Musgrove. Her integrity shone throughout our interactions. A realistic approach to our wishes combined with professional intuition, made us realise we had made the right decision. During a lengthy period of negotiations, mortgage backlogs and fragility within the chain, Katy remained steadfast, intervening when asked and proffering guidance to allay concerns. On completion, Katy was there to make sure everything went as planned, the perfect conduit between vendor and purchaser. The antithesis of the run of the mill estate agents, we would recommend using Barry Passmore to anyone wanting a professional, respectful, unobtrusive, supportive and friendly service to buy or sell property/real estate.”
