John D Wood – Fulham
Testimonial video and area guide for London estate agency
TMC was commissioned to produce a series of videos that focus on their various branch locations throughout London including Primrose Hill, Fulham and Wandsworth. Getting clients on camera talking positively about your brand and their customer service experience is hugely powerful. John D Wood has produced a number of these videos with TMC. Focusing on specific areas around London, they also use the videos to guide clients on what it is like to live in an area – in this case, Fulham. This is a client testimonial video that also serves as a useful area guide for Fulham.
Established in 1872, John D Wood is one of London’s most respected estate agents. Fulham will be followed by the remaining branch network in line with their planned refurbishments. The brief for this video production was to capture the essence of Fulham and what it is like to live there. Without interviewing any sales staff or managers we developed the authenticity by interviewing two clients who lived in the area – one lettings and one sales. The clients shared their experience of living in Fulham whilst explaining how John D Wood has helped them to successfully buy, sell and rent properties.
We this production over one day. We worked with the client beforehand to establish the message, tone of voice and key objectives. We then developed the interview questions and created a storyboard for sign off. The video production has been very well received and is embedded on the John D Wood website under the Fulham location. These kind of client testimonial videos are highly effective for our clients as they sell their message whilst giving customers value-added information. It’s all about delivering great content and this video production does that exceptionally well.
"We are delighted with the results from The Marketing Café. They have captured the culture and tone of our brands perfectly and present a compelling case as to why clients should choose us. We see a real return through this medium and look forward to further collaboration."

Fulham | Brought to you by John D Wood & Co
Scott Stranger, sales client: We were attracted to Fulham firstly because of it’s proximity to the centre of London, but also the community spirit and the fact that there are lots of great schools, great parks, everything a family like us would want.
Galia Febrer-Brown, lettings client: You’re almost in Central London but you have a bit of village life as well and I’m always walking down the street and I’m always going to bump into somebody that I know. I love that feeling of knowing people when people talk to you and say hello, it’s nice.
Scott: We’ve always known about John D Wood and I guess their heritage and the strong brand you see on the high street were the reasons that we go to them as our real estate agent of choice.
Galia: The best thing I like about John D wood is the relationship we’ve got, and I feel very very comfortable with the whole team.
Scott: The marketing that John D Wood do is really comprehensive actually, they use new technology, certainly across all the major real estate portals but also the use of social media etc as well as the presence locally, you know they get the message out, which is great.
Featured on the major portals
Galia: The wider network certainly helped with the new property. I got a call from Rebecca saying ‘right tomorrow we’re opening it up to the rest of the market’. As a result of that suddenly I was getting calls from her team saying ‘we’ve got people from Chelsea’, ‘we’ve got people from Battersea’.
