    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!
  • paragraph

    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.

Making selling your home a stress free process....

We will make your move memorable for all the right reasons so why not find out more about how we can help you with your house sale.
  • paragraph

    Honest advice you know that you can trust
    Wrights are the estate agency that you can trust. We'll always be honest with you when you decide to sell your home with us. We know the Hertfordshire property market extremely well which means that we are in the perfect position to give you the advice that you need about sales prices and selling strategy. We'll always give you a realistic valuation on your property and if we think that there are ways that you can make your property more saleable then we advise you on that too. We can even recommend a range of trustworthy local tradespeople to help with any improvements you may need to make.
  • paragraph

    A proven sales strategy
    Our sales strategy is designed to ensure that your house sale runs as smoothly as possible and that we achieve the best price for your property. At Wrights we utilise all of the latest technology to get your property listed on the best property search sites including Rightmove. We also use our social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook to let prospective buyers know all about your property. We even send out property details in our monthly newsletter too. We realise that selling your home can be stressful so our innovative 'Open House' events are a great way to ease the burden and reduce any inconvenience that you may face. Rather than showing viewers around individually, we will arrange an 'Open House' event (usually on a Saturday) where all prospective buyers can come along to view your property. This generates a high level of interest and we sell eight out of ten properties through this method. We often find it can help our customers reach over their asking price too.

      The best local estate agents in Hatfield

      Of all the estate agents I considered for the sale of out house, Wrights and in particular David, Andrew and Tina, have given exemplary advice and service. All were totally professional, friendly and approachable at all times. There is no doubt that we wouldn't have achieved such a good price for our house with other estate agents. That's what comes from years of experience, which is exactly what you get with Wrights.
