Need help with some PHP code (3 posts)

    I hope I'm posting this in the right place. One of my clients had someone built him a custom wordpress theme, but the original designer didn't add the finishing touches. I'm stuck on some php coding that I can't figure out. One the home page http://chuckwardrealestate.com/ you'll see the featured properties section. This is the code calling this featured properties box:

    [ Code edited with backticks. Moderator note: when sharing code examples, please wrap the code in backticks or use the code button. ]

    <div class="bordercontent"><h2> Featured Properties </h2></div>
    
    			<div class="topleftimagecontent">
    
    			<?php query_posts('cat=4&posts_per_page=6');
    			if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    			<div class="topFeaturedimage">
    			  <div class="Featuredimage"><?php the_post_thumbnail();?></div>
    			  <div class="Featuredtitle"> <p> <?php the_title(); ?></p></div>
    			</div>
    			<?php endwhile; endif; ?>
    			<?php wp_reset_query(); ?>
    		</div>
    	</div>
    </div>

    The appearance is fine, but I need to add functionality. What I want to happen is to make the images clickable so that you can go to the posts where the images are. I don't know enough about php to write this code. Can anyone help me with this?

    <div class="Featuredimage"><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail();?></a></div>

    Thank you so much! That's exactly what I needed to know. I knew it would be something simple that would make me want to smack myself on the head for not figuring it out.
