About Fenn Wright Manningtree...
  • paragraph

    Local Experts
    With the scenic beauty of its riverside setting, excellent amenities, mainline railway station and a wide range of properties makes Manningtree and its surrounding villages a hugely popular choice with buyers.

    Manningtree is famous for being England's smallest town. Set by the river, it has restaurants, shops, public houses, a weekly market and a really strong community feel. 

    Railway stations situated at Manningtree and Mistley provide access to London's Liverpool Street station approximately 60 minutes away, as well as local towns Colchester & Ipswich.

    Manningtree and the surrounding villages of Mistley, Dedham and Lawford are very desirable places to live, with good secondary and primary schooling, period properties, particularly in the town centre, alongside newer exclusive developments such as Lawford Place, so there should be a property to suit all tastes. 

    Fenn Wright is the region's leading, independently owned firm of chartered surveyors, estate agents and property consultants.

    Why use Fenn Wright to sell your property?

    Informed valuations - for free
    Will you sign-up the Estate Agent that says your house is worth the most? Having your home valued higher than expected may feel good, but sitting on the market for ages with no interest - and reducing your price later on - is not much fun.

    Fenn Wright works hard to get the asking price for your home right, from the get-go. Our surveyors value thousands of homes every year - for private sellers and major mortgage lenders. 

    We use our local knowledge and up-to-date market intelligence to produce well-informed valuations.

    Value for money
    What's a reasonable fee for handling the sale of your home? There are agents who will charge lower fees than Fenn Wright, and others that will charge more. 

    We believe we provide a great service to our clients at a fair price.

    Serious about service quality
    Want to find an Estate Agent that truly cares about the service they deliver? 

    Fenn Wright asks every vendor to complete a customer satisfaction survey after contracts exchange. The results are read personally by our managing partner so that our people get the 'pat on the back' they deserve and any training opportunities are followed up.
