Justin Thomas

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 Director.

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 son's local football team Corfe Mullen United.

Richard Wilson

Richard Wilson

Richard Wilson was the co-founder of Wilson Thomas with Justin Thomas in the Spring of 1992 when the Lower Parkstone office opened. Richard has retired from the day to day running of the firm after having spent 27 years building up the business on the back of much repeat business from not only happy past clients but from recommendations and referrals from local solicitor and business contacts.

He was very clear he wanted Justin to take up the reigns and that the only way to guarantee the business would continue to be run on the same ethical basis was for it to be in Justin's safe hands.
