An estate agency branch in a famous tourist village has been revived after being effectively mothballed during Covid.
The office of Samuel Wood in Church Stretton within the Shropshire Hills AONB was opened in 2014 to great fanfare but became a victim of the pandemic when the company decided to convert it into an ‘interactive hub’ from which staff could organise and attend property viewings.
This has now been reversed and the branch will now be run by Andy Price (main pic), who joined the company in February.
He is new to the estate agency sector which he says he’s ‘passionate about’. Before joining he worked for a business systems supplier operating within the automotive and education sectors.
“Samuel Wood is a well-known, well-respected company and highly recommended,” says Price.
“We do a really good job and I want to help build on that reputation. I see the client relationship as the most important one we have. People come back to Samuel Wood time and time again in their property journey and I will nurture those relationships as they are special and important.”
The estate agency’s co-director Russell Griffin told local media: “We are thrilled to re-open our offices in Church Stretton after a period of closure partly due to Covid-19 restrictions.
“Now with a refreshed office environment and upgraded computerised software system, we are fully operational and hope to bring a new dimension to the local property market with the very latest marketing technology.
“Church Stretton has always been a key component of the Samuel Wood organisation.”
