Published: 5th August 2022

Rising star becomes the newest director at family-owned company Barnsdales, which also welcomes a new hire to its growing team.


Head of block and residential property management Rebecca O’Neil, has been promoted to director while former surveyor for Barnsley Council, Adam Carratt, joins the business.


Having joined the company in July 2019 to develop the firm’s residential management business, Rebecca O’Neil now oversees more than 500 properties, including 50 blocks of flats throughout the UK as a company director.


Meanwhile, Adam Carratt joins the firm as a property management surveyor dealing with a mixed portfolio of retail, industrial and office properties located throughout Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. 


Jason Barnsdale MRICS, Managing Director of Barnsdales, said: "I am thrilled to be welcoming Adam to our team and promoting Rebecca to director. This is in complete recognition of the hard work she has put in and the significant growth of her department which she has been instrumental in delivering over the last two years. 


“Since joining our team, Rebecca has made a visibly positive impact not just on her department but also the whole business. Rebecca’s lateral thinking and innovative ideas established her as an immediate asset and I look forward to supporting her in continuing the growth of our residential property management business.


“Adam joins our team as our newest surveyor, bringing his specialist expertise, as well as his local knowledge of the South Yorkshire area from his time at Barnsley Council and as a surveyor at Flexspace. I’m looking forward to working with Adam and I’m sure that he’ll be of great support to our clients across the region".


Now a director of Barnsdales, Rebecca O’Neil said: “I’m so pleased to have been appointed as a director of a company that’s been supporting property owners, buyers and renters for more than one hundred years. With the last few years having seen some fundamental shifts in how buyers and sellers think, especially in the wake of the pandemic, it’s an incredibly exciting time to be working in the property market.”


Already a member of the Institute of Property Management and the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (MARLA), Rebecca is also working towards her Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) to become a Chartered Surveyor.
