WellingtonWise Estate & Letting Agents have been providing local, independent property services with exceptional customer service to St Ives, Hitchin, Cambridge & Royston for the last decade.

A local agent you can trust!

WellingtonWise Estate Agents was founded in St. Ives in 2005 by owner and Managing Director Neil Wise. Having worked for a corporate agent for a number of years, Neil noticed a gap in the market for an independent estate agency with a modern marketing approach, delivering local and national exposure alongside honest, pro-active customer service.

Despite a decade of turbulent market conditions, WellingtonWise has continued to expand, always keeping its core principals of local expertise, exceptional customer service and market leading exposure at it’s heart. In 2008 WellingtonWise residential lettings division was established, providing landlords with advice and property management services. In 2012 a second office opened in Royston, with a further expansion into Hertfordshire taking place in 2015 The most recent expansion came in 2017 as WellingtonWise Cambridge was launched to serve the university city.


With offices that cover a large area of Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire and a range of town and country properties always available, our offices are perfectly placed to find you your ideal property.

St Ives

The first WellingtonWise office was established in 2005 in St Ives, Cambridgeshire. Since then St Ives has become a property hot spot for many Cambridge commuters, with the introduction of the guided bus route that links St Ives to Cambridge Science Park and the town centre.

With a prestigious office in the market square, WellingtonWise has become the go-to local estate agent, renowned for our long standing property specialists - all of whom are local people.

St Ives is a picturesque market town on the river with traditional independent stores, bars and restaurants. The town also has all the local amenities, including dentists, doctors, a leisure centre and some excellent primary schools, as well as the St Ivo secondary school.

As well as the town of St Ives, WellingtonWise also serves many of the highly desirable surrounding villages, including Hemingford Grey and Hemingford Abbots, Fenstanton, Houghton, Wyton, Needingworth, Bluntisham and Colne to name a few.

Established in 2012, the Royston office is in the Hertfordshire hometown of Managing Director Neil Wise. With Neil’s local knowledge and contacts, the Royston office quickly gained market share and became the leading Estate Agent in town.

Thanks to its rail and road links Royston is another town on the up. Only a short drive from Cambridge, commuters can also get to London Kings Cross in under 40 minutes via direct trains from Royston station.

Royston town has a rapidly improving high street and is definitely an area worth investing in.

What our clients say

Mrs Parker, Royston

Client testimonial

I can happily recommend WellingtonWise, who both sold our old house and found our new one. They have a comprehensive understanding of the local market and take the time to listen to and understand their clients' needs. A wonderful, professional, personal service that removes the unnecessary stress!.

Matthew Peake, St Ives

Client testimonial

In selling our house we received an honest and transparent service from all the staff at WellingtonWise. We found the staff were prepared to listen to our preferences and genuinely felt like they were working for us, rather than just in the interests of achieving a sale. Many agents have a reputation for dishonesty and unscrupulous behaviour, but this certainly wasn't the case with WW who were first class for us

Mr T Salkield, Royston

Client testimonial

An exceptional service from start to finish. Clear communications at each stage of the process. I would thoroughly recommend using WellingtonWise and wouldn’t hesitate in using their services again in the future.
