Fuelled by a commitment to her values and an overwhelming desire to run her business in a customer-centric manner, Gill Barr has embarked on a new journey, with the launch of her namesake Barr Estate Agents.
In partnership with UrbanX, Gill’s decision to establish her own brand stemmed from wanting her clients to choose her for her attention to detail, tireless work ethic and strong moral compass.
When asked about her choice to collaborate with UrbanX, Gill’s decision was a natural one.
Having previously worked under a UrbanX-powered agency, she was no stranger to the team’s exceptional qualities.
“The team is fully committed, professional, and very supportive,” Gill explains.
She described her experience working alongside UrbanX, as “fantastic and easy.”
Despite the initial apprehensions that often accompany agents leaving behind the traditional model, Gill experienced her own share of concerns.
“My only fear was breaking away…But it was easier than I feared,” she candidly admits.
“I’m just happy to not be controlled in the way I work.”
With more than three years of experience in the real estate industry, Gill’s journey to founding Barr Estate Agents has been both a fulfilling and transformative one.
Reflecting on her entrance into the industry in 2020, she remarks, “I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner; it is all my passions in one job – meeting people, houses, challenges, negotiations, delivering high-quality service, and helping others”.
When prompted to offer insights to fellow agents contemplating a similar leap towards greater independence and control, Gill’s advice centres on authenticity.
“Be yourself and always believe in what you are selling, as the public is your audience,” she says.
Be transparent, honest, and hardworking – it will pay off… Especially if you have the support of UrbanX behind you.”
With the launch of Barr Estate Agents, Gill is able to construct an agency that not only aligns with her principles but also champions unwavering support for her clients.
As the new agency continues to gain momentum, we are confident that Barr Estate Agents will not only set new benchmarks for authentic selling but also elevate the standards in the market.
