Meet The Team

Luke Bennett


T: 020 8544 2828

Luke launched SW19 in 2005 having worked within estate agency locally since 1998. The first office was established on Merton Road where business thrived and the SW19 presence expanded further into Wimbledon town and Colliers Wood.

Living in Wimbledon and being a local face in the community has played a large role in the growth of the business. ‘Those people locally that know me will know that SW19 aside, my big passions are sports cars and formula one racing. I also enjoy participating in charity half marathons and bike rides around the country.’

From an early age it was Luke’s goal to own his own business. His drive is maintained by the people within his team who help to motivate and encourage new business each day. A typical day begins at 6.00am and finishes at 8.00pm. The challenges and the rewards within the industry are as inspiring now as they were when SW19 first began.

‘I love walking and running over Wimbledon Common. The green open spaces, the pond, the woodland, it feels as though I am miles from the hustle and bustle of the city and yet it’s right beside all of the energy and vibrancy that London has to offer.’
