"We are thrilled with the great service we have received from Sowerbys. The Dereham team are all professional, approachable, knowledgeable and friendly. Their marketing materials, especially the photos, are second to none. We listed our cottage twice with Sowerbys and both times had a sale agreed within a week. When buying or selling Sowerbys are extremely easy to deal with, helping to make the whole process as seamless as possible."
