I started at Sowerbys, Holt in June this year having worked for both a Corporate and Independent Agent in the local area in the last 6 years.
Sowerbys is a totally professional Agent with every member of the team at Holt working together to achieve high volumes of instructions and sales. Each day offers new challenges and experiences. I feel proud that I can now say to people that I work for Sowerbys when asked what I do for a living.
The unique qualities that Sowerbys brings to the business, draws people to visit the office here before any other Agent in town. I used to think it strange that Sowerbys would tell potential vendors that they had a client base that was different from the other Agents in town and more suited to their ideal buyer. I had wrongly assumed that buyers would register with every Agent in Holt. When I started at Sowerbys in the Summer I realised very quickly that buyers do indeed come solely to Sowerbys to find that special property as they know that we are the only Agent in town with the expertise and knowledge to market the higher end properties in North Norfolk.
I love the fact that Sowerbys is constantly seeking to find new, innovative and unique ways to market the properties on our books from professional photography for the majority of instructions to the bespoke video tours that are so popular. A recent video tour has resulted in the sale of property from a buyer in Switzerland who took the trouble to fly over to view having been motivated by the video.
I am also now involved in the sale of properties on new developments backed up by a fabulous New Homes Team which is also something that I had not experienced before and am enjoying this new learning curve in my knowledge.
All in all I can only say that I feel privileged to have had this opportunity to join Sowerbys in Holt at this point in my career and am thoroughly enjoying the new challenges that this brings.
"I just wanted to say that we have recently purchased a house via Sowerbys and wanted to comment on the excellent customer service received from Alison Carter. Alison was extremely accommodating from day one; as we live in Hertfordshire and wanted to make only one day trip to view a number of houses initially. After the initial offer was accepted Alison went above and beyond to make sure that exchange happened, liaising between the Vendors, Vendors Solicitors and ourselves. As with all these things something always goes wrong but because of her involvement we believe it was as pain free as possible. Once completion had taken place she helped with meter readings and our keys and an interior designer we have arranged. I know Estate Agents often get bad press and often good news or praise is overlooked or not given so I wanted to say how much we appreciate all Alisonâ€™s efforts."
