"I'm so glad that I decided to ask Sowerbys to find a tenant for my property. I really appreciated the input of both you and your staff every step along the way. You were all direct and honest about what was required of me and I was kept up to date with every development. The advertising of the property, tenancy agreement and inventory were professional and well executed and I was kept informed on every detail of potential tenants' visits and their feedback. Everyone at Sowerbys bent over backwards to be helpful and someone was always available to help me with any queries I had. I was surprised and relieved to find what could have been a very stressful exercise ended up being a breeze. I can't thank you all enough."
