Let’s face it, the opening of a new estate agency office may not exactly be everyone’s idea of headline news. But when the ribbon was cut on a new office in Church Stretton recently local residents and business people alike popped by to say hello and offer their best wishes.
This was because it was not an ordinary estate agency office opening. This was a Samuel Wood office opening. The Shropshire specialist has offices running down the spine of the county - as well as a London office through the Mayfair Group - and partners and staff with their roots deep in the local residential and agricultural property market. Through this they have been making friends for fifty years. Over this time they have helped thousands of Shropshire people with their property affairs.
Samuel Wood's senior partner, Gareth Samuel, says, “I have personally been associated with Church Stretton for a very long time – as have my partners. Opening an office here feels like coming home. That is something I understand all about because helping people come home is what we do. This new office perfectly links up our current offices in Oswestry, Shrewsbury, Craven Arms, Ludlow and of course, Mayfair.
“Our firm prides itself on its intimate local knowledge. My colleagues are the sons and daughters of Shropshire and I like to think few know the county better. Opening in Church Stretton adds to our excellent coverage, allows us to employ more great local people and to make even more friends."
