    Wrights is proud to be an independent estate agency with our own unique values and ethos. We have been in business in Hertfordshire for over 30 years and our experience in helping our customers to buy, sell or rent their properties is second to none. Over the years we have built a professional and enthusiastic team and we now have three branches based in the towns of Hatfield, Stevenage and Welwyn Garden City. But how did it all begin? Read on to find out more about the history of Wrights, how our story started and how we got where we are today...
  • paragraph

    It all begins with a 'For Sale' sign
    Wrights was founded in 1983 by Melvin Wright. Melvin was an experienced estate agent who began his career working for W.H.Lee based in the village of Ware and then moved on to their Stevenage office. As he progressed in his career Melvin was asked if he would open another branch of W.H.Lee in Harlow. Whilst pondering this decision Melvin happened to see that a shop unit in Hatfield was for sale and this made up his mind - he would start his own estate agency! He picked up the phone to the agent and said he wanted to buy the unit, and so Wrights Estate Agency was born on the 15th August 1983.

    Success in Hatfield
    Due to Melvin and his team's hard work and determination Wrights Estate Agency really took off in Hatfield. They were chosen as re-location agents for British Aerospace for whom they sold all of their residential blocks, and took on a high number of repossession jobs from the building societies. At a time when many estate agencies were shutting their doors Wrights great reputation ensured that they were being kept busier than ever. Their opening hours extended from 9am - 9pm and they also employed a full time mortgage consultant!

    The family grows in Welwyn Garden City
    10 years after Wrights first opened its doors in Hatfield Melvin made the decision to open another branch in the lovely town of Welwyn Garden City. And so in 1993 Wrights of Welwyn Garden City was founded. Initially the agency was only based in the 1st floor office but its success and popularity soon meant that it took over the ground floor too. As Wrights is truly a family business, Melvin's brother Graham came on board at this time to set up a lettings team for Wrights who were the only agents to manage student lets in the university town of Hatfield.
  • paragraph

    Branching out in Stevenage
    As the Wrights team had such a wealth of knowledge about the Hertfordshire housing market it made sense to open another branch, and because Melvin had previously worked in Stevenage he decided to based his next office in this lively town. Wrights were the first independent estate agents based in the town centre and where we led others followed - it soon became a prime location for a number of estate agencies
