A Partnership Born and Bred in the Chilterns
Two successful independent Estate Agencies created the Wye Partnership to provide an exceptional service throughout South Bucks and the Chilterns.
Our Partners are all highly experienced individuals with an in-depth understanding of their respective local markets. They will help you find the home that you have been looking for, whether it is a wellappointed townhouse or a luxury barn conversion.
Wye is independent and that independence is our strength, allowing us the flexibility to offer outstanding customer service to buyers, vendors, tenants and landlords alike.
Meet the Partners
The Partners of Wye are amongst the most experienced in the area with a passion to deliver an exceptional level of customer service.
Five of The Wye Partners have over 40 years experience working in the estate agency business and the sixth has made it his career for more than twenty. Most of our Partners have lived and worked in the area for most of their professional lives.
The individual Partners are all experienced and knowledgeable estate agents in their own right. Together as The Wye Partnership, they now have an
impressive record in achieving successful sales and rentals on behalf of their clients.
The merger between The Wye Partnership and Wynyard Wright & Ellis has created a highly respected Chilterns Agency, uniquely qualified to specialise in premium country properties and inner town locations.
We understand that buying, selling or renting property is an exciting, yet often daunting experience, and we want you to enter the market confident that you are in capable hands.

Our employees play football for their local teams, join the parent teacher associations and raise funds for local charities, just as you would expect. This sense of responsibility and community extends into the workplace at Wye.

You will see The Wye Partnership represented at numerous events and activities throughout the year - it’s extremely important to us to be part of the community that we live and work in.
“What our customers say about us”
We are pleased to say Wye Residential surpassed our expectations and we were very pleasantly surprised and therefore rate Wye as an
excellent estate agency and we would use them again for selling.
Mrs & Mrs James
We’re so glad we chose Wye Residential to market and sell our house – we cannot fault the service the whole team have given to us. Always
friendly, professional and honest, a pleasure to deal with.
Sarah & Paul Tinay
I have no hesitation in recommending your team to any of my acquaintances in need of an estate agent – your reputation preceded you
when I was looking for a reputable local estate agent and you fulfilled all reasonable standards that could be set.
I can honestly say that the service that you have provided has exceeded my expectations. Your calm and professional approach has been
very much appreciated. You kept me updated, you gave me good advice, you gave me confidence and you never let me down. I am forever
Reliable, communicative, honest and professional, not what you would typically say about estate agents. I went with Wye Residential
because I felt they put the most amount of effort, thought and care into correctly pricing & marketing my property, which was proved right,
as it sold within a few weeks.
Wye Residential have been excellent in their communications, always ringing back promptly. They have made the whole process painless
and we are very grateful for the attentive and brilliant service we received. We have always been kept informed on where we were at in the
sale. In conclusion, we would not hesitate to use them again if we were ever selling.
Mr & Mrs Griffiths
