Who we are

Sowden Wallis was established in 2014 by Tom Wallis.

Working in a local branch of a national estate agent chain, Tom Wallis realised something was missing from the Stamford property sector: an independent estate agent who put customers at the heart of everything they do.

And so, Sowden Wallis was born with this in mind. Why not focus on the client rather than the property? Getting to know our clients is key to providing the best service we can offer, whether that means over a cup of tea in our cosy office or via a quick email. Whichever way our clients want to communicate with us, we are here for them.
