"Just wanted to say we were very happy with the way Sowerbys handled the purchase of Fourways. Helen (from your Dereham office) pulled out all the stops and did everything to help us. Full credit to her. She was brilliant. You are more than welcome to visit us if you are in the area. I would definitely recommend Sowerbys to friends and family who would be interested in buying or selling a property. Other than that, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and all the staff at Sowerbys a Merry Christmas and a very good New Year. Kind Regards Florence Arklie "
