The Winkworth story began in 1835, when Henry St. John Winkworth opened his estate agency business in Curzon Street, Mayfair. The business was based in Mayfair but his brother, Edward Henry Thomas Winkworth ran a country office in Brighton. Our main business involved selling residential property to an exclusive client list and letting houses in Mayfair to the landed gentry for 'the season'.
Since then, Winkworth has opened offices across the UK and internationally, and has built a reputation as a responsible and trusted brand, one well-known for providing excellent service, a depth of resource and an innovative approach to business.
Every single Winkworth office is owned by an independent proprietor, whose market expertise is unlikely to be surpassed. Our proprietors and their staff are encouraged to be active members of the local community too, which means they have a vested interest in ensuring every client receives an exemplary service.
All our offices work together. They share business and refer those clients that they can't help, perhaps because they don't cover the area in question, to an office that can. As a client, you don't just benefit from the services of one Winkworth office, you benefit from a whole network of offices, plus the specialist marketing services of the Franchisor Office in London.
What we represent
Our brand is our business, and over the decades, we have worked hard to create and maintain a brand that reflects our unique perspective, whilst portraying a contemporary and forward-thinking approach to estate agency.
We pride ourselves on following five core values: Professional, Individual, Curious, Entrepreneurial, and Community-minded; all of which underpin the unique characteristics of our brand and capture our commitment to long term success.
As a name synonymous with prime residential real estate, Winkworth has become the obvious choice for both UK and international buyers and sellers. And we continue to look after our town, country and international clients with the same care, attention and professionalism that set us apart over 180 years ago.
