The current firm was established by the amalgamation of Beane & Wass with Box Commercial in September 2000. Few will now remember the name of our predecessors Wright and Ward, Estate Agents and Auctioneers which was established by David Wassís father in Ipswich around 1900. On 31 March 2014 Richard Bertram acquired the business and David Wass now acts as a consultant.
