Franchise estate agency chain Winkworth has expanded its presence in prime south west London with the opening of a new Wimbledon office.
The new office franchisees are Mana Legha and his business partner and wife Gabriela, who has over 13 years’ experience working in prime property in the capital for Knight Frank and Savills, specialising in new development sales.
This is Winkworth’s 15th office in south west London, with more than 60 branches in the capital and a nationwide network of more than 100 outlets.
Mana Legha says: “Wimbledon has an enormous cachet as a place to live and has a global reputation, thanks to Wimbledon fortnight, when tennis fans across the world are focused on SW19. Demand for the area is very strong as people look to move to larger homes, close to green spaces such as Wimbledon Common, in an area with outstanding independent and state schools and excellent transport links to the West End, City, Gatwick and the coast.”
Gabriela Legha adds: “The location appeals to London buyers and international clients looking for a London base, as well as young professionals and families looking for an attractive place to live. Wimbledon is one of London’s smartest villages, with wonderful shops, riding stables, cafes, restaurants and pubs, and a real village feel. We are delighted to have joined Winkworth and to be part of such a powerful upmarket brand – a perfect fit for our Wimbledon office.”
The company says the latest opening is part of its expansion strategy in London.
