Over the past 10 years The Pedder Group has successfully helped more than 120,000 people with their property needs across Southeast London. A dynamic, high-performing, family-owned and run estate agency, the company has a host of complementary operating companies serving different sectors across the property industry.

The company endeavours to help talented, engaged people to grow their careers based on merit and is proud of the way it manages, upskills and supports employees by way of tutorship; mentorship; incentive schemes and, not least, regular review processes to enable career progression.

Pedder focuses on delivering brilliant service through operational excellence; brand growth through effective marketing practices, and the development of a successful, valued workforce. The residential sales business was formed in 1977 following the acquisition of five loss-making offices from the Wates Group. Further services offered by the estate agent include development consultancy, finance, new homes, chartered surveyors, property management and commercial.

Over the past year Pedder issued regular Covid policy updates, with the priority being safe working. The group stated: “It is crucial to us that staff feel supported, considered and cared-for.”

Managers – with the company's economic performance to look out for, yet mindful that people's wellbeing and mental health matters most – undertook daily conversations with individuals either on Zoom or in phone calls. This included anyone on furlough and the company's leadership made it clear they had an open-door policy.
