Stephen Wood is the head of sales at the Zoe Napier Group. Steve has been successful in selling individual and country properties in Essex for the last 15 years. The Zoe Napier Group has built an enviable reputation for selling country and equestrian properties throughout the county and Steve complements this with his raft of knowledge.

More and more people are looking to acquire land with their home, to ensure they have control over their immediate surroundings and flexibility for their own interests and pursuits. As equestrian property specialists, the Zoe Napier Group have a demand for properties that enable owners to have their horses at home as opposed to in livery, which gives them peace of mind.
