Welcome to housefyi.com!

This blog runs in parallel with our company Harrison Thorn estate and letting agency, so we’re all about property.  Covering North West Leicestershire, South Derbyshire and Charnwood in the East Midlands.

Have you ever wanted hints and tips from someone in the industry, to help you get ready to sell or let a property? Or what to look for when your viewing?  Are you about to become a Landlord? Do you have any idea about the legislation that’s involved?  Well hopefully I’ll be able to help.

Additionally, if you are looking to rent or sell your property in the near future, and would like a face to face visit for a no obligation valuation?   Then fill in your details below and I’ll be in touch.

About me!

My name is Debbie and welcome to my Blog!

This is something I’ve been planning for a long time, but when setting up a new business there are a lot of priorities that need to be taken care of first.  But now I’m raring to go.

The blog itself is a means of giving anyone who reads it up-to-date information, hints and tips on all things property, whether you are a buyer, seller, landlord or tenant and no matter the issue.

Many people have asked why I decided to become an Estate and Letting Agent?  To tell the truth, it’s one of those things you say you could do better at when you’re the customer watching the supposed professionals doing their work, when they’re ill-prepared, not particularly interested in you as a customer because their phone screen seems more entertaining and they can’t answer the simplest of questions.  And so, Harrison Thorn was born.

Over the years I have bought, sold, let and rent many properties all over the UK and abroad, so I can definitely empathise with customers and clients on various issues that arise on most property transactions.  I also love to look around other people’s homes, admiring the décor, layout and soft furnishings.

On the very rare occasion that I have some spare time,  I love to read, write, bake and travel!

I hope you find this blog informative and helpful.



Have your babies flown the nest…finally? Do you feel like you’re rattling around in a house that now is far too big? Maybe it’s time to start thinking of downsizing.

What is the point of a Letting Agent?

It’s a question I’ve heard on many occasions from Landlords who don’t work with agencies and don’t see the need for them.  But whether you’ve been a landlord for a long time or you’re just purchasing your first buy-to-let, don’t dismiss using an agent.


Harrison Thorn estate and lettings take pride in their high standards of Customer Services.  Don’t just take my word for it…
