Nick was so easy to talk to, sympathetic to our situation, obliging and helpful. He was professional, but approachable and friendly. He checked up and down the chain and kept us thoroughly informed. He even visited us in the evening at home to update us and contacted us on his day off to keep us informed. We are delighted with the service! Mr & Mrc C Welwyn Garden City

Meet the Team… Warren Jones

With 30 years of experience working for large Corporate Estate Agents in changing markets, it is refreshing to work as an independent agent, being able to focus on the local market and having the flexibility to be proactive in a challenging market. I have been holding Open House events since 2005 and without question they are a far better way to sell a property to the best buyer at the best price whilst the property is still fresh on the market.

I am over the moon with Wrights, I cannot fault them at all. As a buyer with wrights, Nick was not my estate agent, but he kept me updated and was always extremely helpful, we soon built a rapport, and nothing was too much trouble. I was previously on the market with another corporate local agent, they were very poor indeed, no personal touch, no interest and no care, I was just a number. I wish I had gone on the market with Wrights in the first place. I would not hesitate in recommending them, thank you so much for all your help. Mrs B Home Ley,

““ I have been using Wrights for 20 years and in that time they have always managed to find me good quality tenants quickly. Their on-going service is efficient and speedy. The team are always available to talk to me. Their maintenance service is either same or next day, this has been particularly helpful in the winter months when a boiler can break down. I feel I can totally rely on the Wrights team. They take the headache away from privately renting. I would not hesitate in recommending Wrights.
