Adele Barlow MNAEA Director

(MNAEA)

As a founding member of the Agency, I am incredibly proud to lead a super loyal and hardworking team and I take great pride in all our Sales and Lettings business.

Having spent numerous years buying and selling properties with my husband and a lot of hard work, we finally settled in our self-build home, with our son and many family pets. Away from work I spend most of my spare time riding and training my beloved horse and we travel around the North of England competing in Show Jumping events, which allows me to bring out my competitive streak!

I am extremely excited about Quantum’s future and especially ensuring we maintain our high standard of service for all of our clients.
