Selwyn Hedgley Joins The SDDE Smith Group

The SDDE Smith Group is excited to announce the acquisition of Selwyn Hedgley Estate Agents.  

The acquisition of Selwyn Hedgley, a well-established estate agent with a reputation for excellent customer service, will further expand The SDDE Smith Group's reach, offering a wider range of services and expertise to their valued clients.

The Selwyn Hedgley brand is heading into its 50th year, and it has built a fantastic reputation as a trusted local estate agent. The business started in 1974, initially as an insurance brokerage that quickly moved into an estate agency. In 2005 Selwyn Hedgley settled on the strapline ‘Experience Is Everything’ and these values remain integral to the company today. 

Selwyn Hedgley Estate Agents will continue to operate under their existing name, but now their clients will benefit from The SDDE Smith Group's extensive resources and expertise, which includes companies such as WOODSmith Construction, Grey-Smith LegalStyled Interior Design, resicentral® and Host & Stay.

"We are delighted to be joining The SDDE Smith Group, a company with a proven track record of excellence in the property industry," says Gareth Walsh, Managing Director of Selwyn Hedgley.

"When first approached by Dale, we had no intention of selling but were blown over by the confidence and dynamism of Dale and the group, which is infectious." 

Gareth continues: "I wanted this dynamism and forward thinking approach to take the new Selwyn Hedgley back to where it belongs, at the top, delivering a superb customer experience, backed up by all the facets of modern marketing."

Dale Smith, CEO of The SDDE Smith Group, echoes Gareth’s enthusiasm for the acquisition, adding: "We felt that the Selwyn Hedgley business was a great fit for our existing property focused brands from across The SDDE Smith Group, and that we could help and support the growth of the Selwyn Hedgley brand through the resources that the group structure brings."

The SDDE Smith Group now has two estate agencies under its umbrella, the first being Manhatten Property. When asked about the acquisition of another agency, Dale Smith responded: "We felt that the estate agency side of the group needed a well established local brand that was looking for new ways to grow."

"The team at Selwyn Hedgley have fantastic experience and great knowledge of the local market, and this is exactly the platform we were looking for from which to grow the estate agency side of The SDDE Smith Group."

The SDDE Smith Group and Selwyn Hedgley Estate Agents are committed to providing the highest level of service and expertise to their clients, and the acquisition marks an exciting new chapter for both companies.
