Leading Norfolk estate agency Sowerbys has recruited a former Countrywide heavyweight to co-manage its expanding Land and New Homes business.
Peter Hurrell worked for Countrywide big brand Abbotts for 25 years following a spell in the Royal Navy, including time spent as a regional manager and latterly as a director.
He then left Abbotts in June 2017 to co-founded his own estate agency, Stobart & Hurrell with Patrick Stobart, who also left Countrywide’s local team to set up the firm with Hurrell.
But Hurrell exited in January this year describing himself, until now, as ‘between adventures’.
He is now helping lead Sowerbys Land and New homes team alongside Richard Cheal and Harry Thompson.
“I consider myself really fortunate, I am incredibly passionate about property and I get to come into work, in one of the nicest parts of the country and where the customers experience is always valued ahead of any business interest,” he says.
“I am hugely ambitious to assist in growing Land & New Homes and making it flourish.”
Sowerbys is the region’s leading independent estate agency with nine branches run by joint MDs Max Sowerby (above) and Lloyd Sandy.
Sandy says: “Max (left) and I are delighted that Peter has joined the Sowerbys group working alongside our current new homes teams, where we will continue to deliver a new homes proposition like no other.
“Over the past few months, I think we have demonstrated that we will react and invest to market demands, and we are all genuinely excited how the future looks for our new homes clients and the Norfolk property market in general.”
