Who is Peter Barry?

We are often asked who ‘Peter Barry’ is and if he is still at the company. 

In fact, there never was anyone called Peter Barry. The company was set up by Peter Langridge & Barry Tonks back in 1983 who, possibly because they couldn’t decide who to name the business after, just combined their Christian names. As they’ve both since moved on it can be confusing, but on the upside, it does make it easy to spot salespeople when they call the office and ask to speak to ‘Peter Barry’ or ‘Mr Barry’ – a regular occurrence.

Peter and Barry sold the business in 1991 to one of their employees, Keith Howard. He went on to run it successfully as a primary sales office for the following 9 years.

The last owner, Justin Burns, took over Peter Barry in 2000 and set up the Lettings department shortly afterwards. Both departments and the company as a whole have grown considerably over the years to become one of the leading agents in the area. The company is now owned and operated by Justin John of Target Property Limited and his vision is to make Peter Barry the first agent of choice for vendors and landlords in the local area.
