John D Wood & Co. says that it is targeting further growth and expansion this year, following a successful 2020.
The company says it defied the challenges presented by the pandemic and delivered ‘outstanding results’, with trading hitting a five-year high.
Property Industry Eye asked for trading data, but John D Wood & Co. said it would not be possible to share any further details at this stage as the Countrywide PLC Preliminary Results have not yet been released.
Nevertheless, they insist that sales last year outperformed 2019 figures despite offices being closed for weeks throughout the first national lockdown in March.
The firm says that 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.
The business has recently expanded its network into the Home Counties by establishing their Country House department, while the recent opening of a new office in Chelsea should help win more businesses in prime London.
John D Wood & Co. will also be supported by the recent launch of their Land & New Homes and Corporate & Relocation services divisions.
Polly Ogden Duffy, who was appointed managing director for John D Wood & Co. last year, commented: “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.”
