In the year that a pandemic shook the world, prime estate agent John D Wood & Co. defied the challenges it presented and delivered outstanding results.
John D Wood & Co. achieved extraordinary growth and expansion during this unprecedented year having reported their best trading result in 5 years with sales outperforming 2019 figures despite offices being closed for weeks throughout the first national lockdown in March.
The business also introduced:
•The expansion of their network into the Home Counties by establishing their Country House department - as a direct result of customer migration from the Capital
•Extension of its London reach with the opening of a new office in Chelsea
•The launch of a further two new divisions - Land & New Homes and Corporate & Relocation services

Growth is set to continue into 2021 with the recent launch of bespoke project management services to support Clients with high-end refurbishments alongside two new senior appointments within the business.
Polly Ogden Duffy, who was appointed as first female Managing Director for John D Wood & Co. and begun the role at the start of 2020, comments on the year’s performance:
"It was a challenging year in estate agency; for our people, and our Clients. I am immensely proud of our teams, for the support they showed to each other, as well as the first class service they continued to deliver to our Clients despite the on-going challenges they faced. 2020 brought us together and has made us stronger moving forward and I am looking forward to another successful year in 2021.”
