"Just a few words to say how pleased we were with Sowerbys Lettings service. We were new to this experience & Hayley at Dereham was fantastic, nothing seemed too much trouble for her and all of our (many) queries were always handled promptly & efficiently. Tenants were found very quickly and the check in & out service was handled professionally. We have since sold our property, using Sowerbys Sales team, who were also excellent, but would have no qualms about using Sowerbys again if we ever needed a Letting Agent in the future."
