After 200 years of high fees and pointless jargon, the industry needs to change — and we’re the ones changing it. We bring together local expertise and technology to make moving easy. And free.

Selling your home for free is at the heart of what we do. We work differently than traditional estate agents. We use technology to be more effective and don’t have expensive high street branches, so we can pass the savings onto you.

We recommend useful services from our partners along the way — and if you choose one of these optional services, our partner pays us a referral fee. And if you don’t choose to use them, we’ll still sell your home for free. No pressure, no awkwardness — just a fantastic, free service.

Absolutely terrible estate agents! Easy enough to put your home for sale online and arrange viewings, but that's the only positive... There is never the same person dealing with your sale or progression. I took my house off the market only to discover 5 weeks later ...

I have also had dealings with these online agents, and must stress they were shambolic! Totally messed up our selling process, documents lost, you speak with so many different people that no one has a clue of what's going on. It was a horrendous experience, and don't wish what we had to deal with on anymore/future customers! Avoid at all costs ...
