Looking after people and property for over 38 years

Graham Barnes writes:

"I have known Richard for 26 years as a consummate professional. I redeveloped Grade 1 Listed Wormleybury Manor back in 1994, since which time Richard has re-sold most of the 26 properties within the Manor House, Courtyard and grounds. I have no hesitation in recommending him to sellers and buyers. He has integrity, expertise, honesty and a determined yet quiet professionalism now rarely found."

"I extend a warm welcome to those of you who know me or have used my services in the past to sell or buy their homes. For those of you I have yet to meet, I look forward to placing my 38 years of professional estate-agency experience at your disposal and to discussing your property needs, whether buying or selling.

My aim is to challenge popularly held perceptions of estate agents by providing a professional service based on honesty and strong moral principles, avoiding the often brash and pushy techniques of many, with the emphasis strongly focused on customer care and attention to detail."

Richard H Wells

"After spending six years dealing with Hertfordshire estate agents we finally came across someone who represented what estate agents should be! 'Richard Wells'

Yes of course he wanted to sell the house to us but it was the way it was done which has stayed with us. A service which offered courteous phone calls, unlimited help throughout the sale and a genuine care that we had made the right choice.

Richard comes highly recommended from us if you're planning on making a move!"

After working with a large corporate agency group for over 38 years, Richard H Wells established his new independent agency in July 2014, blending the latest in technology with traditional values, and delivering a service of the highest quality in order to meet each client's objectives and to exceed their expectations.

"Richard I must say you were great to deal with when we were selling Park Cottage. Very professional, great local knowledge, calm, thorough is also a word I would use to describe you. Well dressed as well, though that will not help on the internet! You also had the office running like clockwork which was great for us with feedback, viewings etc.  Bobbi says you should move here (Vancouver) and take on the locals and clean up! Wish you and your wife all the best, and by the way, you were the best of the best."

Moving home can be one of life's most stressful experiences and people's homes are often their most valuable asset, which is why it pays to work with a property professional who has successfully navigated clients through all of the ups and downs of the market for more than 3 decades. By instructing Richard H Wells, you have the comfort of knowing that you are dealing with a highly proactive agent, with a proven track record, who cares and supports his clients throughout this process.

"I cannot praise Richard Wells enough, I have used his services twice in selling properties and both times have been very satisfied with the results. My last sale was during the recent down climb in the property market, despite the protracted sale time Richard remained constantly in touch; feedback from viewings was always timely; Richard's advice was valuable and most importantly I trusted this advice, his experience in the property market was evident, resulting in a good outcome." 

Richard's family business, H. Wells & Sons Ltd. was established in Ware in around 1860 and he has lived all his life in the county of Hertfordshire and has accumulated a vast knowledge of residential property over a large geographical area.

Lester and Rosemary Bennett writes:

"We came across Richard fifteen years ago when we bought our current house through him. He conducted the negotiations professionally and efficiently, but what struck us most of all was that it was done with integrity.  A few years later we were considering purchasing additional land and called upon Richard to advise us, which he did admirably. We later decided to extend our house and once more Richard was our first choice to advise us, reviewing plans and preparing projected values etc. We wholeheartedly recommend Richard for his professionalism, integrity and deep understanding of the local market."

Many of his customers return to him again and again, and much of his business has been gained by personal recommendation. A brief look at some of the testimonials will show that Richard has gained an enviable reputation for selling all types of property including: TOWN AND COUNTRY HOMES, COTTAGES, EQUESTRIAN PROPERTY, UNIQUE AND CONVERTED BUILDINGS, PERIOD PROPERTY AND LUXURY APARTMENTS. Richard is passionate about customer care and will always provide an efficient, punctual and polite service at all times.

"I have known Richard for some 25 years. He acted on my behalf on the successful sale of my last property in Little Berkhamsted. He is a total perfectionist, with an eye for detail and punctuality second to none. He would always follow up confirmation of appointments in writing and always report back after viewings. His knowledge of the layout and surroundings of the property and area are always well informed. I have every confidence in confirming that in my opinion, Richard is a thoroughly professional, personable, knowledgeable and trustworthy representative."
