Wilfords in London has expanded the lettings side of the business by acquiring two agencies and their managed portfolios.

The estate agency, which has branches in Kensington and Wandsworth, has acquired Cameron Pearson in South Kensington and Draper Estate Agents in Notting Hill.

In addition to its sales business, Wilfords works with long and short-lets, covering a broad area of west, central and southwest London.

The latest acquisitions bolster the portfolio in its Kensington office and now Wilfords is looking to expand its lettings operation in its Wandsworth branch, which covers large parts of Southwest London. To continue its expansion, Wilfords has set aside £500,000 for further acquisitions over the next few years.

Simon Welfare, co-founder of Wilfords, said: “Since we opened or first office in Kensington over 10 years ago, and now with the opening of our Wandsworth branch 12 months ago, the lettings side of our business has rapidly grown. We have built a great reputation with both landlords and tenants alike through providing a professional, personable, and bespoke service.

“We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Cameron Pearson and Draper Estate Agents as part of our Kensington offering, and we are now actively looking to acquire other agencies in Southwest London to build upon the success of our fledgling Wandsworth branch.

“What sets Wilfords apart from large corporates is that we are an independent and local estate agent who can offer an agency’s hard-won clients a seamless transition, while continuing to provide both landlords and tenants a high-quality service.”
