"It's not cost me any extra as their fee has been no more than estate agents wanted to charge me direct. It's given us access to impartial & professional advice and we've really appreciated this support. Kirsty helped us choose estate agents, set the asking price and evaluate agent performance. Because Movewise arrange photography it's easy for them to transfer to multi agency (or change agency) and they do all this for you."
“This is a new service that I read about in the Times. I thought it was worth trying as there was no additional cost based on what estate agents wanted to charge me direct. Even so, we feel it's a service worth paying for as you have access to a trusted expert who's on your side throughout the process. As they retain control of the property photos it's easy for them to move agency for you. They can also help select & evaluate agency performance. Kirsty was brilliant for us. Thank you. I would recommend and use again.”
"The work carried out by Movewise & indeed the agent they appointed was excellent. Congrats to all the team. "
“After signing up with an Estate Agent for 6 months and having had not a single viewing, I turned to Movewise who arranged for the relaunch of our property within a week. Two weeks later we had an offer agreed. All this with little to no input from us other than the usual cleaning and preparation. Thank you Movewise, great job.”
“Choice of agents, & help with chasing-up when it was needed. Also the photography & floor plan art was first class. Nice customer service throughout.”
"Thank you very much Movewise. The main benefit for us was to break up the “stranglehold” of the big agents and galvanise activity and for me the personal touch was important. Kirsty was very helpful and kept us up to date at all times.”
"I had tried before. While I had some viewings, I only had one sensible offer and even that proved to be a mirage. This time round I used Movewise. They started with an agent I'd used before, but fairly soon switched to another agent I wouldn't have chosen. This process led to a lot more viewings, and several offers. While this was going on they moved to a third agent, which brought in one more offer. It turned out that the last agent was the one whose bidder came good in the end. I got a better price than if I had stayed with the original agent and felt there was a lot more competition for the property."
"Kirsty did everything for me from selecting the most proactive local estate agents to monitoring the whole sales process. I can’t thank Movewise enough for a speedy sale and obtaining a good price for my property."
"We worked with Movewise recently and the transaction went very smoothly. They were very responsive and good to work with."
The vendors of this property were keen to get a good price to fund the renovations of the property they were planning to move into. Movewise assigned 1 agent and the property went on the market at the top end of the valuations. The property was listed for two months generating a consistent flow of viewings. A buyer was found despite COVID-19 and the deal was closed at 98% of the asking price!
Movewise was appointed to help sell the property after a sale had fallen through with an estate agent a year previously. Movewise listed it offline with the leading local agent achieving one offer which sadly didn't convert. When the property went live online it was listed with two leading local agents generating a second offer, which again failed to convert. Finally the buyer was found by an offline listing with a third agent.
This property had been stuck on the market for almost a year, a previous sale having fallen through on the day of exchange. Movewise relisted the property with the most active estate agent in the area and generated many more viewings and ultimately a sale at 98% of the asking price.
This client was keen to sell quickly as they were moving out of the area and wanted a stress-free experience. Movewise listed the property with 2 estate agents which both had extensive market knowledge in the area and gave them a limited time frame to generate interest. A sale was agreed within 10 days at 97% of the asking price!
These vendors enlisted Movewise after a struggle with their chain. The property was valued at £330k - £430k but the vendor wanted £400k+, as they had recently renovated the property. Movewise chose to list with two estate agents and many viewings later a sale was agreed at £405k.
The vendor of this property approached Movewise as they had tenants in the property and didn’t live locally. After instructing the best local agent, Movewise were able to secure the vendor an offer at 98% of the original asking price and kept the sale together whilst the tenants found an alternative property to move to. This made the whole experience less stressful for the client!
The vendors of this property needed to achieve a particular price in order to buy the house of their dreams. Movewise interviewed 3 active estate agents in the area and listed with one. There was a good volume of viewings immediately with two buyers coming back for 2nd viewings and agreeing the asking price within a week of listing!
This vendor was struggling to sell their property as they had used an agent who over valued the property and under-delivered. Disappointed with the result, the vendor instructed Movewise who relisted with the top 2 estate agents in the area and had a number of potential applicants for the property, some of whom were cash buyers. An offer was quickly accepted from agent 1 followed by an offer from agent 2. The vendor chose to take the cash offer which successfully went through.
This rare double mews house in South Kensington had been on the market for a year with one of the leading prime agents but had not received any acceptable offers and was now getting no viewings. Movewise was introduced, left the original agent on the sale, and remarketed the property with a second prime agent who generated a good number of viewings but no offer. Finally a third agent was introduced and within 2 weeks the property was under offer and sold.
The vendor of this property failed to sell with their original estate agent so they approached Movewise who recommended a new agent that had fresh applicants. An offer was made and agreed but took a while to exchange due to the chain at the bottom falling through. Movewise advised on the possibility of re-marketing but the chain was re-agreed and went through to exchange.
This client came to us as a word of mouth referral. We had a good level of interest but once lockdown hit they went quiet. One of the interested parties did revisit the property and through the great work of the local agent and Movewise the sale was agreed. A great team effort pushed the sale through to a successful simultaneous exchange and completion.
Having interviewed 2 excellent local agents we listed with one initially. As an investment property the vendor was looking to achieve a price at the very top end of the range of valuations. The agent got over 40 people through the door and a sale was agreed very close to asking price.
This landlord's student property was being sold due to change in the local HMO regulations, meaning that a number of properties were coming on at the same time. The property went under offer and the buyer tried to use the COVID-19 downturn to chip the price by 10%. Movewise advised the vendor to relist with 2 agents and despite the pandemic had many viewings achieving a superior result.
The vendor had previously listed with 1 estate agent and despite a good number of viewings, no offers had been received. A quick sale was required as the vendors were moving abroad. An intervention by Movewise to relist the property with two further agents resulted in a fresh approach, more interest and multiple bids Within a couple of months, the vendors in Dartford soon sold their house for 1.5% over the original asking price!
This client came to us having been let down by an agent who agreed two sales that both fell through over the course of many months. The second time the sale fell through our client had even moved out of the property and into a rented property in order to accommodate exchanging and completing on the same day. When she contacted us she was abroad and unable to come back to the UK due to Covid-19 restrictions on travel. We researched the agents and instructed two to begin marketing immediately. Within a week the property was under offer within 1.5% of the asking price and in under 8 weeks we have exchanged and completed.
The vendors of this property had struggled to sell through their chosen agent so approached Movewise for help. We instructed the agent who we felt to be the most proactive in the area and they successfully got an acceptable offer. We were dealing with a long chain and were then hit with Covid and many solicitors being on furlough. Thanks to a real team effort we got the sale through and the vendors into their new home.
This was part of a portfolio of commercial properties we were approached about selling having dealt with the vendor on their residential property. We instructed multiple agents at the outset and had bids from two agents which resulted in achieving over the asking price.
