Traditional values

Movaing house can be one of the most stressful experiences in life, which is why Butcher Residential provides a professional, personal service every step of the way. 

We pride ourselves on integrity, based on traditional values, which means we can offer you, the customer, an open and honest approach to valuation and purchase.  Our aim is that you will enjoy the experience of buying or selling a property through Butcher Residential, finding it a hassle-free experience, which is just how it should be!


We know that our customers’ homes represent the biggest single investment that they will make and that’s why it is so important to market your property to its full potential. Only by exposing your property to as many buyers as possible will you guarantee you get the best price for it.

That means making sure your home is advertised in all the right media channels – both printed and online - to give you the best chance of a sale at the right price. We take care of all this on your behalf and also make sure that our agents are fully briefed on all aspects of the property when talking to potential buyers. This provides a better chance of securing that all-important sale.

When it comes to your home, you need a residential estate agent that takes it personally – and we do!

Principal – Ian Butcher

The firm is headed up by Ian Butcher, one of the most experienced residential estate agents and valuers in the South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire areas. Ian has over 25 years of experience in Barnsley, Sheffield, Huddersfield, and surrounding areas, having worked at four high street estate agency firms, latterly as a partner at Merryweathers.  He was responsible for establishing the successful Barnsley branch of Butchers Residential Estate Agency in 1999.

Ian’s expertise covers every aspect of residential property – dealing in all price ranges, from the smallest one-bedroom flat through to some of the most prestigious and highly prized properties in the region.  He recently sold properties in the Barnsley area worth in excess of £1.5m. Ian is renowned for his integrity and, as such, regularly acts as an expert witness in legal property cases, providing law firms with a credible independent valuation leading to the settlement of what could be complex property disputes.
