What we do

Movewise is pioneering a better way to sell property. Our aim is to deliver the best possible sales process for every property in the UK. We do this by using technology and phone interviews to identify the estate agents likely to have the most buyers for a particular property. Customers sign directly with Movewise under very flexible and customer-friendly terms and conditions (with no exclusivity agreements). We use a UK-wide photographer to take very high-quality 2D and 3D photos, then we sub-contract the preferred estate agents sequentially until one or more buyers are found. This way we ensure each property achieves its maximum price and best chance of a successful sale. We manage the process from listing all the way through to completion, checking that the agents are delivering viewings and providing solutions if progress slows down.

Who we are

Tom Scarborough, CEO and Founder, has a 20-year background in finance and asset management. He founded the company in 2018 after struggling to sell his own property, which failed three times under offer. He saw that he could generate more viewings by relisting with new agents and that some agents produce more viewings than others.

Steffen Schwark, CTO, has 20+ years’ experience in software engineering. He joined the company in 2020 to develop the Movewise technology platform and digitise the property sales journey from start to finish with any agent anywhere in the UK.

Kirsty Burnham, Head of Property, has been an estate agent for 20 years, and was most recently an Associate Director at Douglas & Gordon in London. She brings a wealth of property transaction experience, from valuation to negotiation and sales progression, and leads the property team.
