Sheryl Sowden - Agency

Our agency team has not only grown in numbers over the past 10 years, but also in the variety of property and services offered.

From residential sales and lettings, development sites, equestrian facilities, farms and estates or commercial property, we utilise the technical expertise across all of our services along with the wealth of experience from our agency teams to deliver results and exceed the expectations of our clients.

It is not unusual within the business to see residential valuers being accompanied by a planner or chartered surveyor to a possible project or opportunity. Selling your home or land with George F. White is just one piece of a larger jigsaw, that interconnects with our other services such as planning, rural and commercial. We’re not just an agent, we’re consultants, and, as such, provide a bespoke service to each client.

Over the last few years, a drive to expand this approach has seen the business buy, sell and let increasing numbers of properties successfully for clients, both in terms of the typical residential property but also across the development, rural and commercial sectors. Our multi-discipline approach means that we can offer a ‘one-stop-shop’ service where our team manages your project from start to finish, avoiding the situation where several different agencies are involved, which often creates a complex and disjointed project management issue.

What initially might seem like a simple sale or purchase of a property, can turn out to be much more, following detailed discussions with clients, we often realise that they’d benefit from talking to one of our architects, planners, or rural management consultants and see projects evolve from there. It’s such an exciting time at George F. White and we have such a great variation of clients with us, who each use our services in different ways.
