The Sowerbys Spirit in full force for Halloween - By Joanna Lobb, Manager, Sowerbys Dereham Office
It’s often difficult to articulate what makes us different from other companies and other Estate Agents. When we say we always go the extra mile to people, it sounds like empty words sometimes. We like to think we are a local agent, staffed by local people, who know the local area and understand and care about the community we all work and live in.
With community in mind myself and my team, Octavia, Gordon, Zoe and Rachel in Dereham decided to put on a Halloween event for the community. Of course we want everyone to know Sowerbys and think of us positively and of course recommend us to people selling or letting a house, but the team here really value and champion Dereham and consider it important to raise the profile of this community.
So much hard work was put into the Halloween event, from cake making to putting together goody bags and decorating the office. All the staff dressed up for the event and our own in house ‘best dressed’ has to be awarded to Cindy who went above and beyond dressed as a pumpkin to meet and greet all our little trick and treaters.
From our point of view the evening was a fantastic success. We thoroughly enjoyed organising it and from the wonderful feedback from all of the families who came along, it seems everyone enjoyed taking part in our games and activities as much as we did.
We look forward to stepping up to the challenge from Dereham Christmas Lights to dress the Sowerbys window for Christmas, so watch this space.
It was so difficult to pick our winners as everyone made such a fantastic effort, but here they are....
1st Prize - Family Ticket to Bewilderwood - Max & Felicity Meeson
2nd Prize - Halloween Hamper - Gracie-Mae & Ashton
3rd Prize - Family Ticket to Hollywood Cinema - Amanda Aldus
A gallery of all entries will be posted here by 4th November 2017.
All winners will be contacted by email to advise how prizes can be claimed.
"Thank you so much for your help in the marketing and selling of both our properties. We choose Sowerbyâ€™s due to their staff. They seem to be a different brand of estate agent, helpful and courteous and very understanding. We have experienced both sides of the housing market with one sale that could not have been smoother and completed within six weeks and another that fell through twice, (third time lucky!) and that seemed fraught with difficulties right until the last moment! This is when the agents earn their fee. I am afraid at times I required a great deal of hand holding and found the whole process overwhelming at times, but with all your help we got there!! A huge thank you to all the team, we are now living in our dream home!"
