Management


Max Sowerby

Managing Director

I started Sowerbys back in 1994 as one man and a dog in the quirky Old Forge Building in Burnham Market. My business plan was simple and remains so, which is to give a first-class personal service and give our clients the peace of mind that we have their interests at the heart of everything we do. I love property and I hope this shines through; if you visit any of our nine branches across Norfolk to see how we are changing the face of Estate Agency for the better.

Lloyd Sandy

Managing Director

We hope if you are thinking of selling, buying or renting a property you will take the time to come and see us and allow us to guide you in the right direction. We are very lucky to be working alongside some outstanding people who genuinely enjoy what they do, resulting in us continuing to surprise and delight our customers with the high service standards that we set and expect from ourselves.

Ed Tyman

Lettings & Operations Director

My role as Lettings and Operations Director overseas a diverse range of responsibilities to make sure our customers experience the very best in terms of service and quality, whilst ensuring Sowerbys stay at the cutting edge of both compliance and industry standards. I have always wanted to work for a local company that matched my own ethos of truly putting the customer at the heart of everything, with an honest and friendly approach.

Will Lightfoot

Sales Director

I began working in property in 2001 and before joining Sowerbys I was a regional manager for the UK’s largest independent estate agent. I am lucky enough to work in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK in my opinion, and after spending three years as the manager of Sowerbys Burnham Market, I am now proud to be the Group Sales Director. The key to being a successful estate agent is very simple - honesty, enthusiasm and always delivering what you promise.

Carly Grigglestone

Marketing Director

I started my career in estate agency in the late 1980's, moving into the marketing world in the 1990's. To be able to combine both passions and be part of the team in the most respected estate agency in the county still feels like a dream come true. I have the best marketing team I have ever had who continually strive to further enhance and develop the strong ethics of this amazing agency. Our aim is to continue to offer clients the absolute best marketing available in the industry.

Ginny Studd

Group Finance Director

With over 35 years’ experience in accountancy, specialising in estate agency accounts compliance and law society compliance, I have been involved with Sowerbys for the last 20 years as it has grown, expanded and evolved over time.  I am hugely proud of what our finance team has achieved over the years, helping provide financial stability to an ever changing market. To be able to combine my love of the outdoors, with my passion for number crunching, living and working in Norfolk is perfect with its big skies, stunning beaches and breath taking countryside; every day is a joy.


Burnham Market


Spencer Cushing

Having been born and brought up in a farming family in North Norfolk I initially chose a career in the army as a paratrooper until I discovered I was to become a father and thought I had better settle down and do something a little less dangerous!

To work with such a great team, for such a customer focus driven company and in such a beautiful part of the county is an absolute privilege.

Karen Lewis-Mitchell

Sales Manager

I joined Sowerbys in the spring 2010 having transferred from a corporate agency to the Burnham Market office. So many of our vendors see us as the obvious choice to reinstruct, as they have come to rely on Sowerbys professionalism care and personal service. It is not unusual for purchasers to pop back in to the office to let us know how they are changing their new homes!

I started my career in estate agency in the late 1980's, moving into the marketing world in the 1990's. To be able to combine both passions and be part of the team in the most respected estate agency in the county still feels like a dream come true. I have the best marketing team I have ever had who continually strive to further enhance and develop the strong ethics of this amazing agency. Our aim is to continue to offer clients the absolute best marketing available in the industry.

Susie Hamilton

New Homes Sales Executive

The Northwest Norfolk coastline has always held a special place in my heart, having holidayed in Brancaster with my family as a child. Despite growing up Leicestershire, the county always felt like 'home' - so in 2009 I made it official and relocated. There is no single defining reason why I am so fond of Norfolk; perhaps it is the variety, each part of the county has something different to offer, and my inherit connection to the outdoors as I am a farmer's daughter and have spent most of my life in horticulture, exhibiting at many major RHS flower shows. I’ve enjoyed my time working across three Sowerbys branches and today within the New Homes division - a role I hold dearly, not only helping clients find their dream Norfolk home, but supporting them through a unique journey from plan to completion.

Amy Felgate

New Homes Consultant

Having lived on the north Norfolk coast my whole life, I have fallen in love with what it has to offer. Previously, I've worked in hospitality until my daughter was born, where I then moved into Estate Agency in 2017. It was clear that this was the best  career move for me, as it is such a rewarding career. My dedication is to ensure both buyers and sellers have a stress-free transaction and I am looking forward to enhancing my knowledge with Sowerbys, focusing on new homes.

Simon Hempsall

New Homes Specialist

Simon has recently joined the Burnham Market team and Land and New Homes team to support the delivery of a key development in the area. Simon comes from the flexible office market where he acted on behalf of clients acquiring property across the UK and Asia. “It has always been a dream to return full time to the North Norfolk coast and to join a market leading, customers focused team like Sowerbys is a fantastic opportunity.” When Simon isn’t living and breathing the north Norfolk property market, he’s often found chasing bass in Brancaster Staithe and Salmon in Scotland.

Mark Bradnum

Land Consultant

Born in East Anglia and loving our unique regions delights, I have more than 30 years’ experience in property, development  and finance across East Anglia and I now focus entirely on land and new homes. Using my experience within the industry and working with private land owners, developers, councils and a variety of businesses to offer the best local advice and service. I love what I do and believe that makes a true difference.

I am extremely proud to be the lettings manager and having been raised in the mid Norfolk area, I have extensive knowledge of the industry in this region.

Sophie Osler (Maternity Leave)

I have worked in the lettings industry for over 10 years, initially for a large corporate estate agency where I gained key skills in customer service, extensive knowledge of the local lettings market and my qualification in lettings & property management. I enjoy building relationships with clients, from helping tenants find their ideal property to giving professional advice to landlords when selecting the right tenant.

Rachel Bignell

Senior Property Management Specialist

I have always worked in the customer service sector and moving into the lettings industry allowed me to offer the same great service to landlords and tenants. Having worked for a corporate company I love working in an independent agency that really does put the customer first. I am part of a team who are dedicated and professional and have a detailed local market knowledge.

Oliver Harwood

Area Lettings Valuer

As a Norfolk boy, with over 10 years of experience in the industry, working in a variety of roles, I truly understand the customer experience. I am delighted to be part of the team here at Sowerbys as its reputation is well known throughout Norfolk as being the leaders in skill, attention to detail and customer experience. I’m a keen golfer and in my spare time like to hang out with friends and family.

Kate Sala

Senior Lettings Specialist

My career in lettings started with assisting clients with the house move process through translation which provided me with an excellent knowledge of the industry. This enabled me to build strong relationships with clients and gave me the ability to ensure the process is smooth as possible. I am thrilled to be a part of the Sowerbys team that dedicates itself to providing the best possible service, and ensuring all our clients leave with a smile.

Leanne Jesse

Having worked in the industry for many years, where I started out working for a housing association and a corporate agent and most recently, as a claims handler in Landlord Insurance, I understand the customer experience entirely.  I am so grateful to be afforded the opportunity to strengthen my passion for Property and customer service with Norfolk’s premier Property Specialists. In my free time, I enjoy drinking gin and exploring everything this wonderful county has to offer with my friends.

I am fortunate enough to have experience as a sales negotiator as well as within our marketing and administration department, which gives me a great knowledge of the whole sales and lettings process, from start to finish.

Adele Norris

Senior Digital Marketing Specialist

People and storytelling are an intrinsic part of who I am and inspired several years traversing the globe.  From van-life under snow-capped Southern Alps, snoozing in a swag crossing the Outback, sitting down to dinner in South East Asian homestays and mooring up with Saharan tribes along the River Nile... but nothing quite beats the fresh air and vast country plains of Norfolk.  Alongside intrepid expeditions I’ve worked in journalism and media relations across Norfolk, Surrey, Hampshire and Sussex. Now swapping nomadic for normality and returning to my home county, I’m throwing myself into a new journey; joining the Sowerbys’ team to share exactly what it is that makes Norfolk so special you’ll want to call it home.

Cindy Naylor (Maternity Leave)

I joined Sowerbys in 2012 after working in a retail and customer service environment. I thoroughly enjoy working for Sowerbys and my role includes creating detailed property brochures and overseeing the property administration for Sowerbys as a whole.

Becoming a team member in Norfolk’s leading independent property agency is an honour; I can use my versatile skills to ensure professional and innovative work when presenting the beautiful properties Sowerbys has the delight of offering.

Emma Cook

Marketing & Administrative Specialist

Norfolk found a fond and permanent place in my heart when I moved from Buckinghamshire to Snettisham with my family at the age of 12.  Today, I deliberately haven't gone far, settling with my own family in nearby Docking - we couldn't resist the community spirit. It's something about the way the light hits the fields at dawn, when the county stands still and peaceful, that I love. Outside of work you can find me with my family, walking the dogs on the coast or stay-cating in our trusty green VW campervan (a long-term work in progress but a much-loved member of the family). I'm proud to call myself Sowerbys' Marketing and Administrative Specialist because, like Norfolk, there's a real sense of community and family.

Lisa Anthony

Marketing & Administrative Assistant

Having worked in estate agency previously, when I saw the opportunity arise to join the marketing team at Sowerbys I jumped at the chance. I have just returned to the working life following my maternity leave, during which time I enjoyed blogging and creating graphics for my social media. I feel privileged to have a job that I truly enjoy, combining my creativity with my passion for property. As a true Norfolk girl, I am proud to be to be working for Sowerbys.

Jamie Read

Marketing & Design Assistant

Norfolk has always been my home. It's somewhere that in my younger years I took for granted but have come to realise offers a spectacular amount. From beaches to countryside, city to town, free festivals to professional football – it has it all. I bring with me a passion for our county having worked in the newspaper industry for nearly a decade and seeing firsthand the best of our local area. I'm excited to be part of the Sowerbys marketing team and use my design skills to showcase to others exactly what Norfolk can truly offer. 

Gabriella Ingamells

Digital Marketing Specialist

Having moved to Norfolk after graduating from my English Literature degree, I have embraced the area and have grown to love the diversity and beauty of the county. Since moving to Norwich I have successfully gained my masters in marketing, where I developed a particular love of digital marketing. Outside of work I have recently found a fondness for golf and also spending time visiting the coast.

Phillip Crookes

I started my career at Sky Television and in 2007 I started my own production company here in Norfolk.  Work has been varied with clients in both the public and private sectors, creating everything from full length documentaries to short web-based promotions. In 2015 I began a relationship with Sowerbys that has grown quickly and successfully. Initially providing just their videos, I have now grown my business to become the sole supplier of all Sowerby’s media content.  I am very proud of the team I have around me and we all are very much part of the Sowerbys family.

I’m a professional photographer and videographer born in Toronto, Canada, currently living in Norfolk. I  spent my earlier career focusing on illustration, before discovering a new passion for photography and film. Since moving to the UK, I have been passionately working as a professional photographer. As the Director of Photography for Sowerbys, I love exploring the many sights Norfolk has to offer while working with my fantastic team. I hold an advanced diploma in Graphic Design and I also studied at the University of British Columbia for Fine Arts and Sheridan College Toronto, for Animation.

John Newstead

Photographer & Licensed Home Inspector

Following a 27 year estate agency career I decided to follow a long held camera dream by going self employed in 2013, providing photography, energy assessment and floor plan drawing services to estate agents.   It is a particular pleasure to work alongside Brian Morris Productions in the provision of these services to Sowerbys in north east Norfolk, doing what I love in the area that has always been my home.

Andrew Winship

I’ve been a professional commercial photographer & videographer now for many years. During that time I have photographed some amazing people, including two Prime Ministers, and have had some extraordinary experiences. Working with Sowerbys has been extremely fulfilling. Everyday is different, meeting so many interesting people whilst capturing their beautiful homes, it really is a privilege. Along with my wife and three children, my work is my life. I am proud to be part of such a strong media team adding my commercial photography knowledge and experience to their portfolio of skills.

Roxy

Emotional Support Team Leader

I treat everyone with the care and attention they deserve. I have no favourites, that being said, I do know there are some humans who need more attention than others.  I do hope we get to meet soon. P.s Ignore what they say about me being distracting, I only need a little attention from time to time.

Leo

Emotional Support Worker - Apprentice

My name is Leo “The Lion”. I have heart-stopping good looks, accented by my large floppy ears. I'm a young apprentice (currently only 4 months old) and I know that I have a long way to go before mastering the art of being a Dog, and all round proper 'good boy'. I'm really hoping that I can learn a thing or two from my extra mature and classy aunt, Roxy. At home, I'm often called  “Porszívó” (pronounced Pour-see-Vo), which is Hungarian for Hoover, because as soon as food hits the floor, I'm there to clean it up in seconds. I will treat anyone I meet as my best friend, I just simply cannot hold in the excitement!
