Two new London offices for Connells’ high-end brand

John D Wood & Co., one of the UK’s oldest lettings and estate agents dating back over 150 years, has expanded its London network with two new offices in Herne Hill and Beckenham.

They are the first foray into south east London buy the agency, which since 2021 has been owned by Connells. 

The Herne Hill office - on the corner of Railton Road, leading to Brixton - reaches across neighbouring residential areas such as Dulwich Village and East Dulwich, and the Beckenham office also covers Keston, Bromley and Chislehurst.


Elizabeth Whitehead, head of lettings at Herne Hill, has built her career at agencies in both prime central and south London; Bradley Gilchrist is head of lettings at Beckenham. 

Polly Ogden Duffy, Managing Director at John D Wood & Co. says: "Beckenham and Herne Hill have long been on our radar as natural extensions of our network, offering our clients village charm within Greater London amongst thriving communities, as well as excellent connectivity to the country and central London. Following the success of our post-pandemic established Country House Department which continues to see strong demand for prime homes in Kent, this expansion into southeast London highlights the growing interest in areas that offer a balance between urban and rural living.

“Our goal is to be the local prime agent of choice, bringing our extensive local knowledge and exceptional service to the residents of Herne Hill and Beckenham. We look forward to becoming an integral part of these vibrant communities and continuing our tradition of excellence in assisting buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants.”
