Next chapter for Sowerbys new homes division continues to grow and crosses county borders hero

Selling new homes in Norfolk was just the beginning for Sowerbys Estate Agents, as the business expands in 2023.

Word has got about in the developer community that the estate agent is expanding into neighbouring counties – and with it, the team grows.

Will Lightfoot, sales director at Sowerbys, said: "There is all round huge growth in new homes within the business.

“As we continue to enjoy long-standing relationships with developers and build our portfolio with new clients, our new homes offering is reaching further than ever.”

Not only have sales throughout the business continued to grown but the estate agent's land and new homes division has increased by 50% since 2019 and one in four homes sold with Sowerbys in 2022 was a new build property.

The department kicked off the new year welcoming new homes manager George Berry to the team.

George has been working in residential sales for over two decades and has headed up the Norwich sales team as joint branch manager since 2019.

At the same time, Sowerbys 'for sale' boards will be spotted in neighbouring Suffolk and Cambridgeshire this year.

Will Lightfoot, sales director at Sowerbys, continued: "Not only has the number of new homes sold with Sowerbys increased over the past few years, but also the value of those homes continue to rise.

“From working with developers at the earliest stages of a development, to in-house marketing, producing a bespoke design and cross-platform multimedia content creation, we work as one team across multiple branches county-wide - and now beyond!

“The hard work of this team will only be further enhanced with George. As joint branch manager of our Norwich team for the past few years, George has overseen the sale of multiple developments in the city and surrounding areas, as well as holding an acute understanding of the wider property market.

“We look forward to continuing to deliver this exceptional service to both current and future clients.”

Richard Cheal, land and new homes manager at Sowerbys, said: "We are thrilled to have George's 20 years of expertise focused on our new homes offering. His support will only further enhance an incredibly focused team to this sector.”

George added: "Over the last few years I have had the pleasure of working on some superb new homes developments around Norwich as branch manager.

"With demand growing and our Norwich branch busier than ever, I am delighted to move into a role focused on our new homes division.

"We have some truly exciting sites in the pipeline. I will be managing the sale of individual plots, developments around Norwich, to the east and south of Norfolk and across Suffolk.

"I look forward to working with existing and new clients alike."

Proud to be a part of the local community Sowerbys branches can be found at the heart of high streets across Norfolk, offering comfortable client lounges and professional board rooms for clients and visitors to enjoy.
