Our Office & Meet the Team
A Brief History
In 1977 George Woodward opened the first John Wood & Co office in Seaton. After a seven year period of successful trading, the Church of the Good Shepherd, originally built for the enlarged town congregation in 1889, was deconsecrated and with the design of David Saxon, an architect from Bristol, George moved the office into the front ground floor of the building.
We still occupy this office some 33 years later and is now one of Seaton’s notable historic buildings.
After 25 years of successful practice and making John Wood & Co the leading estate agent in the town, George Woodward retired in 2002 and the business was acquired by Brian Wapshott who has continued the success over the past 15 years to become Rightmove No.1 agent in our area for Sales agreed in 2016.
