Susie Hamilton

Job Titles:
  • 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.

Job Titles:
  • Property Specialist
I have lived in north-west Norfolk all my life and know and love this beautiful part of the world. Customer satisfaction has always been at the heart of my professional life, so, after my two daughters were born, the transition from home retail to estate agency was a natural move for me in 2013. I have worked in Burnham Market for 6 years and I'm delighted to have joined the Sowerbys family. Whether you are looking for local land to develop, commercial property, or your forever home, I'm here to help you fulfil your dream.

Will Lightfoot - VP of Sales

Job Titles:
  • 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.

I moved from New Zealand in 2014 and fell in love with Norfolk.

To be part of such a caring and professional company truly reminds me of why I love the job I am in. I am so proud to work alongside such wonderful and caring staff and to be able to involve our customers in that atmosphere, is what Sowerbys is all about.

After years of renovating, refurbishing and extending my own properties, together with working in agency since 2000, I am truly passionate about property.

Together we can achieve a much more enjoyable moving experience.
