Our Office

The Welwyn Garden City branch of Putterills Estate Agents specialise in houses for sale and property to rent within the vicinity of Welwyn Garden City, including the small surrounding towns, villages and suburbs of Burnham Green, Digswell, Hertford, Knightsfield, Lemsford, Letty Green, Old Hatfield, Panshanger, Tewin, Tewin Wood, the West Side and Welwyn Village.

We have been serving the Welwyn Garden City area with professional estate agency and letting agency services for over 25 years and would very much look forward to working with you in order to successfully facilitate and complete the sale of your house, property or home and can even help you let your property.

The Area

Welwyn Garden City was built soon after the First World War according to the vision of Sir Ebenezer Howard, founder of the Garden City movement. Howard planned ‘a town designed for healthy living’ where people could live, work and raise their families away from congested cities. People coming to live here would enjoy working and living within easy reach of the countryside and have their own gardens and open spaces. These ideas later inspired the 1946 New Towns Act and towns that followed.

Today, the population is over 42,000 and Howard’s name lives on with the main town centre thoroughfare named Howardsgate and the modern indoor shopping complex The Howard Centre. Great attention has always been paid to landscaping, with residential and commercial areas laid out along tree lined roads. The neo-Georgian style town centre has a large department store and many branches of major chain stores.

The town has developed into a thriving international business centre where many influential companies enjoy the advantages of a quality location.There are excellent leisure facilities including the 126 acre Stanborough Park containing boating and sailing lakes. Gosling Sports Park is a superb venue for cycling, athletics, squash and tennis. It also has a ski-slope and golf driving range. There is an 18 hole public golf course at Panshanger as well as a Welwyn Garden City private golf club. The Campus West Arts and Conference Centre has an indoor theatre, indoor roller –skating rink and conference facilities.

Parkway in the town centre is the jewel in the crown with its famous fountain built for the Coronation in 1953, majestic close cut lawns and colourful embroideries of flowers. Maurice de Soissons in his definitive history of Welwyn Garden City, ‘A Town Designed for Healthy Living’, said, “To walk in the Garden City today is always the best way to appreciate it.”

Welwyn Garden City has excellent road links courtesy of the nearby A1(M) which provides rapid access to the wider road network. London is approximately 20 miles to the south, with Luton and it’s airport less than 15 minutes away. There are frequent train services to London (29 minutes), Cambridge, Peterborough and other local towns.

We almost always saw Gary Clifford, we were impressed with his helpful attitude and he was personable and professional at all times.

Eileen K - July 2018

The whole team are impressive with a high level of professionalism and clearly an abundance of experience. I found Jane and Nicky really warm and friendly. The lady that showed us round on the viewing was by far the most knowledgeable viewing guide I’ve ever had. Gary really connected with us on a very personable level – invaluable at such a stressful time. Adam is extremely on the ball and extremely efficient. We were completely confident in his ability to get things done really quickly and well. My impression is that Putterills has more collective experience than other agents.

Thor & Laura - May 2018

Adam Hewitt had excellent local knowledge and helped us set an appropriate selling price. Jane Wotherspoon gave good after sales service by keeping us informed on progress with the sale including solicitor’s progress. Putterills are much better than other agents we dealt with. We would definitely use them again.

Terry Attwood - May 2018

Gary at the Welwyn Garden City branch was extremely accommodating on arranging viewings for convenient times, he left voicemails and emails as appropriate. I never felt he was pushy or misleading about the property. He was always on time and during negotiations, he came across as very efficient, honest and supportive of both buyer and seller.

Sophie Weller - May 2018

We were impressed with Jane for her calm approach and persistent support and guidance to make our sale proceed, Gary for his useful advice on managing our purchase and Adam for his market knowledge and enthusiasm. Overall, we are very satisfied with the service and all of the team's assistance.

Keith & Nicola - Feb 2018

Jane Wotherspoon kept us updated throughout the entire process. Brilliant service – thank you! Ten times better than other agents. And if we were to sell our house in the future, we would definitely be using Putterills.

Kelly & Adrian - Feb 2018

Adam at WGC was our main point of contact and his intervention at key points in the process was very beneficial. Without him, there were several times when the whole process would have been aborted and we are very grateful that eventually, we bought the house we were waiting for. Gary and Jane were also very helpful.
I would like to say that we were very impressed with the level of service that Putterills provided. At all times, they were calm, reassuring and knowledgeable. They dealt with the many problems that occurred very professionally. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Mr. & Mrs. Stabler - Feb 2018

So happy with the service from both the Welwyn Garden City and Knebworth offices who helped us buy and sell our houses. Very grateful to all involved. They were knowledgeable, patient and professional. Nothing was too much trouble. Putterills are less pushy and very honest.

Sam B - Feb 2018

Nicky Todd from Putterills in WGC did exactly what she said she would and acted as an excellent middleman between us and the vendor. Thank you!

John Searle - Nov 2017

The property assessment, advertising and sale of my property was done in a most professional and helpful manner. Adam and his team at Welwyn Garden City branch are to be congratulated.

Rod H - Sept 2017

The Welwyn Garden City office work really well as a team. Jane did a great job chasing the sale and Adam lined up another buyer on the same day the first dropped out.
We had a great overall experience and I would say they are the best agent in Welwyn Garden City - I experienced Ashtons and Country Properties first.

V Turkentine - Sept 2017

Thank you to Putterills WGC team for all your help with my house sale and purchase over the last year. Although it's been a long, difficult process, everyone at Putterills has been so helpful and professional, which has helped make moving just that little bit easier.
Putterills definitely gets my recommendation as the no.1 estate agent in Welwyn Garden City - certain other agents have a long way to go to match the service you provide.
I'm now looking forward to a new chapter in my new home, which I'm already loving.

Lorraine Eve - Sept 2017

I wanted to say that we loved purchasing our home through Putterills. Nicky was lovely to deal with, she never put pressure on us despite it taking ages to get our mortgage in place. We feel the branch is trustworthy and lacks the nasty hardsell factor of some other agencies which we really can't bear. We felt that the branch in general and Nicky in particular have the best interests of both seller and buyer at heart. We would definitely choose to use Putterills WGC again in the future. 

Cathy - Sept 2017

Adam Hewitt is friendly but professional. He gave a thorough presentation on the ‘selling experience’ and put us at ease. Jane Wotherspoon was friendly and has kept us updated throughout the whole procedure.
We would just like to thank the whole team at the Welwyn Garden City office.

Liz Jeffery - Aug 2017

Adam immediately grasped that the sale of the house was emotional for us with total sensitivity and professionalism - rare these days. Nicky had a wonderful phone manner, always rang us and we never had to chase.
We really cannot fault Putterills. Adam and Nicky are superb, a formidable team. Customer service like this is rare these days, we are used to being fobbed off not rung back, especially as proficiently. Once we had dealt with Adam at the first visit to the house, we weren't going to deal with anyone else!

Malcolm & Jenny - July 2017

Adam Hewitt did the original valuation and we were impressed with the sales particulars for our property. He was very informative. He brought the property we purchased to our attention and was efficiently attentive throughout the negotiations.
Gary Clifford did most of the viewings and he was good at putting prospective buyers at ease. He dealt quietly and effectively with and for us throughout.
Nicky Todd showed us around our new home and was friendly and informative.

Mr. & Mrs. Pankhurst - June 2017

Thank you very much to Nicky Todd for her help in selling our house and for being always pro-active. Had it not been for Nicky's hard work, we would most probably still be waiting to exchange. Thank you again.

Ms. Evan - May 2017

All staff were helpful and easy to talk to. I appreciated the non-pushy approach (compared to other agencies), from when Adam came to give a probate valuation over a year before marketing, and again when actually selling - with willingness to negotiate fee. Staff were helpful and knowledgeable on the block viewing day and speaking to Jane and Gary in the office, they were always happy to help.

Rosie Neal - April 2017

The sale of my late mother's house has been emotionally and physically exhausting - but thanks to the kind, professional service from Putterills in Welwyn Garden City, the whole process has gone as smoothly and quickly as possible. Thank you!
Nicky Todd had good communication, was helpful and approachable. The weekend viewings assistant was very good with people. The manager, Adam, was professional, knowledgeable and responsive.

Mary Reddaway - March 2017
