About My Ideal Mortgage Property Partners

We have had the privilege of working together for many years, and it became evident that the next natural step in our professional evolution was to join forces and venture into the property market. With our combined expertise and shared vision, we are committed to offering top-notch services that encompass every aspect of property transactions.  


I’m Zoe Wood, maiden name Smith. And just like Terry, I am also born and bred in South Ockendon. And I am an overbearing property enthusiast who is obsessed with all things homes, houses  and estate agency.

When I was 17 I did a personal assistant course at college, and started a day release in an office environment, this being an estate agents. Since then I have never looked back and my love and obsession for all sectors of this field keeps growing day by day. 19 years later and I have developed a overspilling amount of knowledge and experience to know that we have something here at My Property Partners that you rarely find in Estate Agency. Compassion, Empathy, Honesty and the genuine want to see customers fulfil their next move, goal, step on the ladder, whatever direction it is going. Holding our clients hands from start to finish brings beautiful fulfilment and the fire in our bellies just keeps growing.

Married with four kids, who all play football and BJJ, we call our home beautiful chaos. And it’s exactly the fuel that keeps the fire burning bright.

Terry and I welcome you to My Ideal Mortgage Property Partners, and we guarantee unapologetic realness to this industry.
