Award winning estate agent Fenn Wright acquires Neals and opens a flagship office in Woodbridge

Independently owned, Essex and Suffolk based estate agents, Fenn Wright, has announced the acquisition of highly respected Woodbridge estate agent Neals and opened a flagship branch in the town.

The office at Nunn’s Mill, Quayside forms part of the brand new Whisstocks development and is the tenth branch for Fenn Wright. The impressive premises benefits from onsite parking for visitors and is just a short walk from the Thoroughfare.

Neals, established in 1951 by Dennis HB Neal, is perfectly aligned with Fenn Wright. The compatible businesses share the same integrity and straight-forward approach, and will combine the best of modern agency practice, with unsurpassed local knowledge and outstanding customer service. The intention is to provide a seamless integration for Neals clients into Fenn Wright’s growing residential and letting portfolios.

James Neal, son of the founder, Dennis HB Neal, has over 48 years’ experience selling properties in Woodbridge and the surrounding area. James will be joining Fenn Wright as an Associate Partner, working alongside Partner, Charlie Wright, in the management of the Woodbridge branch.

James commented: “I am delighted to be joining the distinguished team at Fenn Wright at their magnificent new Woodbridge branch and becoming part of the Signature team, selling the most desirable town houses, country homes and properties with special character.”

Charlie Wright, Partner at Fenn Wright added: “James is extremely well-regarded in the town and has unrivalled knowledge of the local area. Our presence along the A12 corridor puts us in an excellent position to bring greater quantities of buyers to the Woodbridge market, particularly as we notice a number of buyers moving from London into Essex and then further afield into Suffolk and along the coast.”

James will be joining Fenn Wright at its new Quayside office, providing the ideal location to offer its unique combination of property services and expertise from.  These include commercial, land and agriculture, as well as residential sales and lettings.

Alan Williams, Managing Partner at Fenn Wright commented “We are confident in our brand and our people. We believe we can replicate the success of our Ipswich and Kesgrave offices for those wishing to buy, sell or rent residential and commercial property in and around Woodbridge.”


Members of the local community are encouraged to pop in for a coffee and a chat about their next move.
