Louise Thompson (MNAEA LLB Hons)

Owner, Valuer and Negotiator

Louise Thompson has several years experience working within the property industry including time spent as a commercial and residential property Solicitor in Wolverhampton and Telford, aswell as prior experience as a Lettings Negotiator within another local agency. Having grown up in Market Drayton, Louise moved to Newport in 2007 when she bought her first house, and very much classes herself as a Shropshire girl through and through!

Now she is a Mum to her three young children, “free” time is at a premium but when she gets the chance, Louise enjoys playing netball, following football (Sheffield Wednesday to be specific!), walking her dogs and eating out!

“I have had a lifelong passion for all things bricks and mortar, so I pride myself on providing friendly, honest and accurate advice – enabling you to reach the next rung on the property ladder.”


Sue Thomas

Office Manager

Sue moved to Telford in 1997 and had experience of running her own sales-based businesses in the past. Because of this, Sue is extremely organised is brilliant at dealing with people both face to face and over the phone. She has held the position of Office Manager at Barker Healey for a number of years now and as well as having a fantastic memory, there isn’t much which phases her!

Outside of work Sue enjoys holidays in the sun with her family and friends, football (she is a Wolves fan but don’t let that cloud your judgement!) and following speedway. She is also a proud Nanny to her two beautiful grandchildren.

“I understand the importance of excellent customer service and combined with my sales experience and business knowledge, I am able to offer friendly advice whilst making sure the administrative side is also well attended to.”


Rachel Templeton

Lettings & Property Management Associate

Rachel is a Newport lady born and bred (apart from a year living in Abu Dhabi!) and as a result, benefits from excellent local knowledge. Rachel originally joined Barker Healey in 2013, but left to move to the UAE with her husband’s job. 6 years on and she has decided to return to the industry and with her previous knowledge and excellent customer service skills, Rachel is perfect for the role.

In her spare time, Rachel enjoys spending time with her family and loves reading.

“Having moved house 14 times in 20 years, (once being overseas!) into both owned and rented properties, I have fantastic “hands on” experience of the moving process and am able to offer excellent advice to help keep the stressful elements at bay!”


Emma Louth

Sales Valuer, Lister & Negotiator

Emma previously worked for another Telford agent and has been in the industry for some 15 years. She is also a fully qualified Beauty Therapist and uses these skills to volunteer at the charities Severn Hospice and Look Good to Feel Better.

In the little free time she has, Emma likes eating out, spending time with her Daughter and walking her dog.

“I really enjoy all aspects of my job, especially helping you to find your dream home. I particularly like negotiating sales and then pro-actively working with you to show you properties which I think would be perfect for you!”
