William’s Way is an award winning family run local Estate Agent specialising in residential sales across Norfolk and Suffolk. The owner of William’s Way, Wil Barber, grew up in Drayton, Norwich going to schools locally and continues to live not far from the office. Having worked for a national estate agent, Wil noticed the need for a more transparent and honest customer service experience. Consequently he established William’s Way Estate Agents in April 2016 with his wife Lucy and Uncle Richard working alongside. We’re totally committed to bringing the best service to sellers and buyers across Norfolk & Suffolk. We often get asked what makes us different and here are few reasons we believe you’d enjoy working with us.

5 STAR REVIEWS - We are very fortunate to work with fantastic people and they’ve shared their positive experiences for future customers on google, facebook, trust pilot and various other places.

REGULAR COMMUNICATION - This aspect is so important when selling or buying a property and this is an area we pride ourselves on. We make great efforts to keep ahead of the game and communicate often with our clients as they navigate their way through this exciting time.

MARKETING EXPERTS - We absolutely love the marketing side of our job. We believe your most valuable asset should be marketed with fantastic technology and equipment. We use professional cameras to make your home stand out from the crowd and we also have the capability to make cinematic 4K video tours with drone footage.

STRONG SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWING - Just like you we hate spammy emails and we’ve worked hard on developing our social media platforms so we don’t rely on random mail shots. We have thousands of people who’ve chosen to follow our progress and we offer you free access to these platforms so your home gets as many eyes on it as possible. GIVE US A LIKE OR FOLLOW on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Youtube.

REFRESHINGLY HONEST - If we really level with you, we don’t love our industry that much. Historically estate agency has struggled with integrity, but this is an area we will never waver on. Honesty is definitely the best policy and our customers enjoy our refreshing approach. It’s also another reason you won’t find us over valuing homes to win business.

Wil Barber

Wil Barber
Managing Director

I was raised in Drayton and still live locally today. I am a husband to Lucy, Daddy to Wes & Freddie, nephew to Richard (branch manager), and as a teenager I probably used to be your paperboy. I attended Drayton First, Drayton Middle, Taverham High, and THS/Hellesdon 6th Form. I graduated from BYU-Hawaii University with a B.A. in English Literature whilst on a Football Scholarship. After working for a National Estate Agency in Norwich I noticed a greater need for better customer service and started William’s Way with my wife and uncle. My hobbies include golf, football, cooking, property projects, photography and spending time with my family.

Harriet Bye

Harriet Bye
Office Admin. Manager

After growing up in Taverham and having a firm interest in property, I took the leap and began my career in Estate Agency with William’s Way. With customer care a big passion of mine, I believe William’s Way gives me the opportunity to put my skills to best use and provide a personal and professional experience. I live with my fiancé Scott, who is a property developer in North Norfolk, and my two cats Blue and Luna. Outside of work I enjoy walks on the coast, spending time with my family, exploring the world and helping Scott with his renovation projects. 

Tori Jaques

Tori Jaques
Sales Negotiator

I come from a teaching background but have also enjoyed work in communications. Alongside these roles, I have learned various skills from the best, my Mum! We’ve renovated several project properties and I’ve found myself deep in removing chipboard wallpaper far too often. I particularly like to incorporate my own eco-friendly spin when it comes to houses, ranging from auction shopping to sourcing more environmentally friendly paint and textiles. Other hobbies include gardening and enjoying nature with my partner and our little Lillie.
