Prime agent upgrades its HQ as it celebrates 150th anniversary

Prime estate agent John D Wood & Co has marked 150 years in business by opening a new headquarters.

It has moved to a new HQ in Belgravia.

John D Wood & Co was established 150 years ago by John Daniel Wood, who opened the doors to their first office at No. 6 Mount Street, Mayfair in 1872.


The business’ Chiswick office has recently upsized to a larger, more prominent premises due to the rise in local market demand, and now the prime estate agent has acquired its new head office at 15 Belgrave Square, Belgravia.

Over the past three years, under the leadership of managing director, Polly Ogden Duffy, John D Wood & C. has opened four new offices.

The expansion follows the agent’s strong 2021 trading results where the company announced that its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation were up 10%, sales rose 55% and tenancies 10% compared with last year.

Ogden Duffy said: “I am delighted we have found our new home on one of the most prestigious squares in London. 

“Our location is in the heart of our office network, conveniently positioned alongside a number of foreign embassies, of which we work with on a daily basis relocating diplomats to the UK through our corporate and relocation services team. 

“John D Wood & Co. has grown significantly in the last three years, and the move to Belgrave Square is a further commitment to our network and growth plans for the future.”
