David Lench

Group Managing Director

“A number of the team, including myself, have started at branch level and have worked our way up through the company...”

We are in an excellent position to do that through our wealth of experience, comprehensive marketing tools and the exceptional support provided to our customers from both our conveyancing and financial services partners.

At Wards we always strive to offer a service to our customers that is second to none and our business has this focus at its core. We call it “Out-passioning our competitors” and our success will come from leaving our customers with a memorable experience that they will want to share with others.

“We believe estate agency should be fun. It’s a busy and varied role where you will meet lots of customers and our role is simply to help them to achieve their dream move.”

Our senior management team are all highly experienced and successful estate agents - we know what works and our strength is in recognising and responding to the marketplace quickly and effectively. A number of the team, including myself, have started at branch level and have worked our way up through the company, being recognised for our efforts, commitment and achievements.

Throughout our careers we have managed to retain a real passion and enthusiasm for estate agency and the company we work for.

So, if you are looking for a career with a company who is keen to recognise your potential and reward your efforts, we would love to hear from you."

Giving something back

In 2016 we completed our ‘Round the world’ cycling event raising money for our chosen children’s charities, and having some fun and exercise while we’re at it!

Every one of our offices across the South East took part to clock up an amazing 38,034km, and raising £89,815 for charity. We’re proud to say that we achieved our round the world challenge and this takes our staff charity fundraising total to £362,815 and counting over the last four years.

A huge thank you to all those that donated and supported us on this challenge.
