The Hawkins family firm was established in the 1850's by Charles Hawkins who was Barry Hawkins Great Grandfather. In January 1986 Barry recognised the need for an independent firm with local knowledge who could cater for the local community and BARRY L HAWKINS was established. From that time Barry L Hawkins has offered the Professional Services of Auctioneer, Land Agent and Valuer.
The Office is located in Downham Market, Norfolk and serves clients in and around Downham Market and across Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, North Suffolk and South Lincolnshire. The present Auction Room, at the rear of the office, was the venue for the famous Hackney Horse sales, held up until the 1950's. Since then it has been used for Auctions of Furniture and Household Effects. Our House Clearance Van is often seen in King's Lynn, Swaffham,Wisbech and beyond, collecting items for sale.
As Auctioneers we hold regular auction sales of Household Furniture and Effects, Antiques and Collectables, Farm Machinery, Wine, Land and Property. In fact "Anything, Anywhere, Anytime."
We can carry out Valuations of items for Insurance, Probate or Sale. The Valuation is Free on items sold by us at Auction.
Professional Agricultural work is undertaken and includes Claims, RPA Forms etc and Stock Taking Valuations.
We also sell Residential and Commercial Properties and hold a portfolio of Rented Accommodation. We are members of the Ombudsman Scheme for Estate Agents (Guaranteeing protection for our Residential Clients)
We are a small firm and all our customers are highly valued, whether new or long term and regardless of whether we are selling a sewing machine or a combine harvester, they are treated with the same respect.
