“Originally recommended to me, I’ve known Barbara for over 13 years and in that time she has dealt with my residential conveyancing and buy to let transactions. I like the way she deals with issues in a very positive, confident and efficient way. If a query comes up she’s on it like a terrier and like a terrier she won’t let go… I’m glad she’s on my side and I wouldn’t use anyone else."
Tony Burnett, York

“Barbara has acted for me on many residential and buy to let property transactions over the last 13 years and I love her ‘can do’ attitude. With her tremendous experience, professionalism and great attention to detail, Barbara keeps everything moving on and as quickly as queries are raised they’re dealt with.   A spade is definitely a spade with Barbara and her no nonsense approach means both sides always know where they stand. I’m looking forward to my next purchase!”
Gavin Ray, York

“Affectionately known by many as the ‘Conveyancing Queen’, there’s not much that gets past Barbara’s unflinching eye for detail.  Highly knowledgably, energetic and with her clients’ best interests at heart, Barbara works hard to keep deals intact and moving forward, often taking a lead where other solicitors fear to tread - a great asset to any property transaction.”
David Brown, Sutton-on-the-Forest

“Having known Barbara for over 30 years, I can’t speak highly enough of her total professionalism and dedicated client centred approach. For conveyancing on semis to large detached houses and apartments, I completely trust her judgement and have never been let down. There are very few people you can totally rely on in this world… Barbara, however, just happens to be one of them.”
Mrs Ann Pilling, York  

"We have known Barbara for over 10 years and in that time have engaged her services for the purchase and sale of both residential and buy to let properties in Yorkshire, London and Hampshire. Barbara has also helped us in other legal matters that have arisen. An integral part of our team, we really appreciate Barbara's proactive and straightforward style. Thinking round the issues, doing the right thing and rising to every challenge with admirable skill and knowledge, Barbara's formidable talent and highly personal approach means dedication to a deal that is rare and much appreciated."
Sue and Gavin Mann

"Approachable, practical, direct and great with the detail; as this is often where the devil hides, Barbara has a great knack for anticipating where challenges may arise and handled a private water supply issue with tact and diplomacy, dealing with all aspects of our purchase to deadline and in a highly professional and comprehensive way.  Responsive, reliable and armed with great local knowledge, Barbara was just what we needed."
Mr. Paul Aber

"My husband and I had been looking for a new home for around 9 months. We finally found the house we wanted however the deal was that we had to complete in approximately 4 weeks so we needed a solicitor who could make this happen.

I had met Barbara at networking events and she came highly recommended. We instructed her to act for us and I was impressed with her expertise. She considered every eventuality that we would need including in the contract and got the seller to change quite a few clauses to suit and protect us. Overall the whole purchase went very smoothly and we were highly delighted with Barbara’s service.

I would highly recommend Barbara and have actually done so already. Having moved into our new home, next door was then sold and we gave the new purchasers Barbara’s details. They have also now completed and were happy with the service they received.

So if you’re thinking of moving home think ‘Barbara Jacobs’ - she does a fantastic job!"
Beverley Kirkham
Company Director, Dot Com Imaging
