Wilkes Green and Hill was set up by Adrian Wilkes-Green, who had been managing the Penrith office of a national estate agent, and Nick Hill, who had many years experience in financial services with Allied Dunbar. The business opened on 4th July 1996 - Independence Day being the obvious date to launch a new independent estate agent!
From the start, the business has worked to combine the best professional techniques of large national agents with the high level of personal service and local knowledge of an independent.
There were already seven estate agents in Penrith when the business started. To succeed it was clear that the team would have to work hard and deliver a quality service. The approach has stood us in good stead and a large proportion of their business comes from referrals and repeat clients.
We are extremely proud to be recognised in the Estate Agent of the Year awards, winning awards again in 2021, Best in County and Silver in North West Region. These awards are based on independent surveys of clients of many estate agents from all over the country. In effect, they are a vote of confidence from clients - and this makes it particularly pleasing to receive these awards.
