The lettings business saw a 10% uplift in new tenancies, with demand driven by property shortages in the sales market, as well as corporate businesses moving tenants internationally being more prevalent following easing of travel restrictions.
Last year, John D Wood & Co. opened a new office in Clapham expanding its South West London network, and also announced its move to a fully electric car fleet.
