Your local, independent estate agent, working harder for you

Our Team

Leigh Lawler FNAEA CPEA

Managing Director

I have over 25 years experience and qualified as an estate agent 20 years ago. Having always lived in Poynton I have a vast local knowledge. When I'm not selling properties my children keep me busy playing or watching football or walking around the stunning countryside we are fortunate enough to have on our doorstep.

Adele Bateman

Sales Director

I have been involved in many aspects of the property industry for many years and very proud when we opened our 1st branch in Marple, which is an area I know very well. My passion is cooking and I like to try making all cuisines from scratch (happy husband)!! I love self development hobbies and also enjoy country walking and keeping fit.

Carl Bateman


With over 40 years in the property industry I bring a wealth of experience. As a founder director of Lawler & Co I'm proud of what we have achieved over the last 8 years and this has given me a great deal of satisfaction. When not in work I spend my spare time relaxing in Trearddur Bay.

Nathan Crosthwaite

Having now been at Lawler & Co for a while I consider myself to be as good at estate agency as I am at golf and football which are my other two passions in life (I'm certain Man United will come good again soon!). Having lived in Hazel Grove all my life I use this to help match my clients to the right properties and their needs.

I started with Lawler & Co in 2015 working as an apprentice in our Hazel Grove branch. In 2018 an opportunity arose in our new Poynton office which I thoroughly enjoy! Village life with customers calling in for a quick chat and seeing the fantastic range of properties Poynton has to offer. In my spare time you will find me running around after my two little boys.
