Greg Wood

Director (Hobbs Parker Estate Agents LLP)

The range of property I work with at Hobbs Parker is hugely enjoyable and ensures no two weeks are the same.

My career in estate agency began in 2006 when I landed a job with a large corporate estate agency on their graduate training scheme. Despite the esteem of being a graduate trainee, my daily duties consisted of making tea and coffee (badly), photocopying, envelope stuffing and general admin. Despite this, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges that estate agency presented and quickly began to develop my career. After four years, I became a Branch Manager, propelling my office to become one of the most successful in the national network. My final few years were as an Area Sales Director, overseeing eight offices in southeast Kent.

Following this, In 2014, I joined a national franchise agency network with 90 offices. Working with a fantastic group of business owners, I helped them develop and diversify their businesses and, in a number of cases, launch new sales departments. I also dealt with numerous cold start launches and various business acquisitions and mergers.

Being a local lad, Hobbs Parker was always on my radar, and I was delighted to join them the firm in 2018. Working with an outstanding team of people, I spend most of my time bringing new property to market, always safe in the knowledge that every client will have an excellent experience. In 2022, I became a director at Hobbs Parker Estate Agents LLP.

So, enough of the formal stuff, this isn’t Linkedin after all, here’s a little bit about me.

I am born and bred in Ashford I have lived in and around the town for most of my life. Outside work, I am an active family man and enjoy walking – usually with my two spaniels. Arguably, I am at my happiest when immersed in the beautiful countryside that surrounds Ashford, and I can regularly be found cross-country running, cycling, or shooting.

Swimming has always been a big part of my life, and I have competed in events all over the country, including numerous river swims, Lake Windemere (end to end) and the English Channel.
