Why choose Sowerbys Land & New Homes?
At Sowerbys, we realise that every development is different - whether it is a one off build or multiple dwellings. We understand every customer has different requirements.
How many of you have had meetings with estate agents who have told you what they will do for you? But, how many have asked for your requirements and worked with you from start to finish to fulfil your needs?
Sowerbys is an independent estate agency offering a bespoke service, tailoring our marketing to perfectly suit your needs.
We pride ourselves on having built up a great reputation and delivering a truly honest fresh approach. Our extensive local knowledge of the market, current trends and of course the location of our offices are just some of the reasons why so many developers use us.
Hear what many developers have to say about our service.
- Land acquisition.
- Constructing reports to support planning permission.
- Attending architectural meetings.
- Assisting with S106 viability.
- Forecasting development site pricing and predicted sales pipeline.
- Weekly reports detailing progression once the site is marketed.
- Staff your show house if required.
- Listen and work with all your requirements.
- Cutting edge pro-active marketing.
We pride ourselves on the quality of the sales brochures we produce. We are able to design a logo and brochure for the site itself in-house or with the aid of graphic designers, along with an individual property brochure for each unit as they are released for sale. Each individual brochure is completely bespoke and includes photographs of the property, a detailed description and floorplan, in order to give the best possible presentation and to encourage prospective purchasers to view. A draft of the proposed brochure will be sent to you in the first instance for you to approve and make any amendments which may be appropriate.
We offer a full film for all new developments. Where possible we film the developers themselves, along with a member of our own team. We are also one of the few agents to offer a completely free virtual tour for every single property we market, a method which is proven to be far more effective than conventional marketing alone, ensuring your property receives the attention it deserves.
Mini iPad style video
Often described as a ‘TV in a card’ these hard backed mini iPad style video brochures enable us to showcase the film for your development in a unique way. They are also loaded with videos about the local area and information about Sowerbys.
These video brochures will be available in all offices allowing interested parties to see the development on screen. Video brochures are sent out to ‘hot’ applicants and are far more engaging than a brochure alone. Research shows that recipients of these brochures are far more engaged than using traditional methods.
We design and send bespoke e-shots to our database of over 10,000 applicants to bring your site to their attention. These e-shots create a ‘call-to-action’ to contact us or make a viewing. They include links and details about the local area, your company and anything else relevant. They can include film when available. Once sent, we are able to produce a report to see who has opened these e-shots and how engaged they have been with it, enabling us to see who appears most interested and follow them up on the phone.
Inclusion in the Sowerbys magazine, produced every 6 weeks. Inclusion on the Guild website, promoting your development to the London market by the Park Lane office and added to the digital window display at Park Lane.
Promotion via our Sowerbys weekly adverts in the EDP, both as a development and for individual properties.
The development and each individual property will also be advertised on national websites including Rightmove, Prime Location and Zoopla using premium listings and featured property promotional spaces where required.
We receive numerous online enquiries on a daily basis. The development and each individual property will be advertised on our fully responsive Sowerbys website with its unique tools which rival the nationals. We will dual list in both the dedicated Land & New Homes section along with the regular property listings, thus doubling the exposure of your development. It will feature regularly on the news section of the site with updates to help increase its exposure on search engines.
Multi listing & inter-office network
What you will not find at Sowerbys are stereotypical sales people, we take great pride in the fact that our staff have come into the profession through a variety of routes, giving them a ‘real life’ approach to business. Transparency and integrity are central to everything we do and we would provide the same standard of care and attention to your properties as we would wish for our own. Our approach is simple – to provide an outstanding service from start to finish.
The development will be promoted by all our offices throughout Norfolk and will feature in window and digital displays at all relevant offices where possible. Applicant matches will be undertaken and potential candidates contacted.
We can design and organise large site boards to ensure great visibility and create enquiries.
Site visits and viewings
Our sales team will visit the development so they can fully appreciate and explain what your properties have to offer and their location, ensuring they really know the detail when it comes to telling prospective clients about it.
We will always carry out accompanied viewings as required to present your development fully. We endeavour to be early for all viewings to allow time to ensure we will present the property and development in the best possible light.
Our team follow up every viewing and communicate all feedback, keeping you fully in the picture.
Weekly you will receive a contact from a member of our New Homes division.
We have great experience at promoting open days to generate interest and viewings in developments. We have a great track record often having secured numerous sales at these launch events. We promote these via e-shots, direct mail to our database and advertising in the local area.
The Norwich Office
Our Norwich Office is not just another estate agency; it’s a suite of period rooms which are for the use of all our clients and associates. We have a member’s lounge where clients can come and use the facilities with a full concierge service. We hold regular events which bring both clients and business professionals into the building on a regular basis. Our boardroom is there for your use, for any meetings you wish to hold in the city. Our concierge can organise any refreshments, book lunch and look after all your needs.
7 days a week
Even though your development will be dealt with by the local office, We offer a dedicated New Homes telephone number that will be manned seven days a week so that you do not miss any potential customers.
With more than 20 years experience of property management, we will provide your development with the long term letting potential of each dwelling.
In addition to this, many developments are ideal for holiday letting and our sister company Sowerbys Holiday Cottages is on hand to offer free advice and realistic potential letting income for each individual property.

"Thank you so much for your help in the marketing and selling of both our properties. We choose Sowerbyâ€™s due to their staff. They seem to be a different brand of estate agent, helpful and courteous and very understanding. We have experienced both sides of the housing market with one sale that could not have been smoother and completed within six weeks and another that fell through twice, (third time lucky!) and that seemed fraught with difficulties right until the last moment! This is when the agents earn their fee. I am afraid at times I required a great deal of hand holding and found the whole process overwhelming at times, but with all your help we got there!! A huge thank you to all the team, we are now living in our dream home!"
