Wilson Thomas Estate Agents were established with their opening in the Spring of 1992 of the Lower Parkstone Office selling residential property not only in the Lower Parkstone, Upper Parkstone, Lilliput, Penn Hill and Ashley Cross areas but also reaching in to Oakdale, Canford Heath and Poole.
Richard Wilson and Justin Thomas the founding partners of Wilson Thomas Estate Agents had worked in Broadstone for many years before opening in Lower Parkstone and so the opening of the Broadstone Office in Lower Blandford Road was natural progression for them, and this was achieved in the autumn of 1996.
When this proved successful the natural step was to try and open in Poole Town Centre and this was finally achieved in the year 2000 in Parkstone Road. With these 3 offices we have the geographic reach that serves vendors wishing to sell their property across the entire Poole area.
Justin Thomas may well be known to many people after not only growing up in the area but working locally for over 30 years. After leaving Corfe Hills School, Justin embarked on his career in Estate Agency working in Broadstone for one of the area’s largest estate agents.
After being instrumental in the conception of Wilson Thomas in 1991 Justin returned in 2006 and has never looked back since, progressing to his current position as one of the Directors of Wilson Thomas.
Justin is married with three children and still lives in Corfe Mullen not far from his original family home. He comments “I really enjoy working for the many clients that come back to us time and time again this is one of the great rewards of working in the area for so long.” In his spare time he enjoys nothing more than pursuing his passion for angling and all things outdoors as well as supporting his sons local football team Corfe Mullen United.
Before opening the Company in 1991, Richard had started his career working for his father who was a Director, originally a partner, of Goadsby and Harding, where he stayed for 8 years. Born and brought up in Poole, Richard is very much the family man with two sons, whilst his wife is the Accounts Director of the firm. Away from the office, apart from family time, Richard is a keen golfer and avid football and cricket fan.
