Who we 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, Nested is fixing the whole moving experience one problem at a time.Today, estate agents get away with doing half a job, getting a seller under offer before leaving them to navigate the rest of the process by themselves. Nested is built for movers, the first estate agent to support both the selling and buying process, for no extra fee. We can even make sellers chain-free, with our groundbreaking cash advance securing their ideal home before they sell.We are a wildly ambitious team, backed by Europe’s leading VCs and led by an experienced, hands-on founding team. In our buzzing Farringdon offices you’ll find a crew of friendly and collaborative problem-solvers each contributing to a new era for home movers.
