Woodcock Holmes Estate Agents was launched in 2002 by our Directors, Adrian Woodcock and Neil Holmes,  With a completely fresh approach and bundles of passion and enthusiasm, thebusiness immediately took off.  Recommendations were being received daily from both buyers and sellers and our reputation was rapidly growing.  Woodcock Holmes soon became one of the leading Estate Agents in the Peterborough area.  In 2004 Woodcock Holmes Property Management was launched.  Our team currently manage one of the largest portfolios of properties across the city and beyond.  

Since our early days, the economic market has changed significantly but we have successfully sustained our standing in the marketplace.  Woodcock Holmes are proud to say that due to our recent expansion programme, we have relocated to larger premises that will offer our clients more modern facilities which includes private meeting rooms and allowing us the opportunity to utilise the latest technology.

We are an Independent Estate Agent and as such have the flexibility to offer a marketing package to suit our client’s individual needs. Whilst we have an experienced team of experts, both Adrian Woodcock and Neil Holmes still work on the front line delivering what we believe to be the best Estate Agency service available. Our marketing starts with the professional property brochures that we produce. They include colour photographs, floorplans and an intelligent write up enticing prospective purchasers to view your property. We are easily accessible if buyers wish to visit us to speak face to face. Our inviting, air conditioned office is based in Hampton, Peterborough. We also advertise through all the major portals which include rightmove and zoopla. 

We are also members of The Guild of Professional Estate Agents and Move With Us Network. This network is the largest in the U.K. with over 1200 Estate Agents. They will only ever have one full member in each town and as such this membership is very sought after. We secured it in 2003, a year after opening and whilst this is reviewed annually we have won it back each year since. They insist on working with the best independent Estate Agents and as such regularly check that our standards meet their high expectations. Being part of this group we are able to receive buyers from throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and help them search for a property exclusively. We have almost 200 Estate Agents operating inside the M25 who recommend Woodcock Holmes as the Agent to go to. Whilst there will always be a demand for properties from local buyers the numbers of people moving into the area is constantly increasing. Whether it’s someone who is moving for family reasons, or relocating into the area for work, or a commuter who wants to take advantage of our excellent rail links to London. This is exactly the type of buyers we receive through this network.  

Whether you are selling or renting, Woodcock Holmes can offer you a credible marketing advantage.
