The company:

The company is redefining estate agency in the UK. For too long, sellers have been subjected to unresponsive agents and broken processes. With a combination of groundbreaking technology and expert local agents, the company is fixing the whole moving experience one problem at a time.

The company is built for movers, the first estate agent to support both the selling and buying process, for no extra fee. They can even make sellers chain-free, with our groundbreaking cash advance securing their ideal home before they sell.

They are a pioneering team, backed by Europe’s top VCs and led by an experienced, hands-on founding team. They are all contributing remotely to build a new era for home movers, with plans to optionally work from home 3 days of the week in the future. When work is over, there’s always been plenty of socialising, from film nights to sports days or more socially distanced activities in the park.
