The Team

Stephen Barnett


Building a highly successful boutique estate agency business in North London is no fluke. From its humble beginnings back in 1981, starting as a small office in Woodside Park, Stephen has created an established, unique, and trusted agency with an enviable reputation as ‘the’ experts in property, spanning over four decades. As a Partner, he’s continually growing the business and keeping up with property trends, providing a highly tailored service, irrespective of price or size of the property. Stephen enjoys his tennis, possessing a John McEnroe style approach but without the red headband, as well as a love for Spurs.

Oliver Ross


Oliver’s Real Estates journey started as a fresh-faced 16-year-old joining the team in 2004. He’s now a Partner heading up the Totteridge office. Being a local to the area, he has a strong passion for his role and the responsibilities this involves; supporting local schools, businesses and most importantly people. He enjoys the outdoor lifestyle and can be seen strolling across Totteridge Common with his family at any opportunity.




Caroline joined Real Estates in 2010, bringing her wealth of experience in the estate agency sector, spanning over forty years, which began at Ronald Preston & Partners, now Preston Bennett. Her Administrator role is just one of Caroline’s skill sets and she is particularly accomplished in nurturing our clients whilst being the friendly face for our customers that are greeted upon arrival at our Woodside Park office. She has a keen interest in the history of architecture and in her opinion, the best city in the world, is of course, London.

He prides himself on providing the most up-to-date, honest and professional advice to those looking to buy and sell in and around our target areas. Jordan has previously worked as a local agent before bringing his expertise in negotiating and valuing properties to Real Estates. An avid Spurs fan, you’ll catch him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium most weekends or walking along Whetstone high street with his family.


Francesca Leigh


One of our newest members of the team, Francesca joined us in 2020 and has since flourished as one of our Sales Negotiators at Real Estates. She has over seven years of experience in the property and development arena. Francesca has a keen interest in property, specifically interior design, having previously worked for a major British architectural and LED lighting company.

Tracey Joseph


Tracey joined Real Estates in 2003, bringing over 35 years’ invaluable sales experience in estate agency, which proves to be a real asset to the business. She briefly dipped into the fashion industry for a short while before returning to her real passion. She’s responsible for numerous charitable events and through Real Estates works with many local organisations to help their cause. Tracey’s appetite and enthusiasm for property is infectious as is her love for people.

  • Following our recent purchase, through the professional assistance of Jordan Silver, I would like you to know how very happy we were with the support your senior sales negotiator provided to us.

    - N & SC
  • Thank you so much for managing our sale. You not only exceeded the price I thought we would obtain but obtained it extremely quickly! I also wanted to express on a personal level how much I have appreciated the way that Tracey has looked after us. Her proactivity and level of care has been second-to-none and I am just unable to praise her enough for the exceptional way she has driven the sale through. I was always confident that you were the right agents to represent the property but the way that Tracey has looked after everything has far surpassed that expectation.

  • I just wanted to write to say thank you. I cannot begin to tell you how overjoyed and delighted we are. We have somehow, and against so many odds, been gifted with the most beautiful house, on such a lovely road, with the brook at the bottom of our garden. The last few weeks have been completely agonising, and perhaps one of the most emotional times of my life. The faith you put in us, to stick with us, to provide the support and reassurance, and to get us over the line is something I genuinely will never forget.

    - SA
  • Dear Casey, my husband and I would like to thank you for your kindness and your efficiency. We highly recommend you for your professionalism. We wish you the most successful pursuit in your career with Real Estates, which you have indeed represented very well.

    - FF
  • It’s a big relief to get the exchange done and dusted. We have bought and sold a fair number of flats and houses over the years and I’d like to say that I have never worked with an agent as efficient, canny, courteous and smart as you. I doubt this would have happened without your dogged persistence and we’re both very grateful to you.

    - BB
  • I’m well aware of the efforts you and your team made not only to obtain a sale, but to assist me with a tricky situation. Lock down. Distance. Disrepair. A mess. Clearance.
    Your friendly, supportive, professional service knew no bounds. I’m only too well aware that you went way beyond the call of duty. Words are inadequate to express my gratitude to you, Casey and Tracey. It was a pleasure to meet you and to have you as part of our lives, albeit temporarily.

    - AM
  • Dear Jordan, I really appreciate everything you have done for us over the period of selling our house. You are the best Agent of all! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    - NR
  • Tracey, thank you so much for your help, you really are a fantastic agent and we have recommended you to our friends who are looking in the Woodside Park/Totteridge area.

    - RB
  • We wanted to say a big thank you for all of your help over the last few months. We‘ve already fallen in love with the house and think we’ll be really happy here!

    - J & SH
  • We are absolutely over the moon!! Thank you once again. Your communication throughout has been excellent. This process has been a real pleasure.
