Who we are

Nested 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.

And when work is over, there’s plenty of socialising, from film nights to sports days.

If redefining an entire industry is a challenge that motivates you, come and join the team at Nested.

    We’re a growing team and happy to make any accommodations we can for individual needs. If you have an additional accessibility or other requirement we haven’t considered, we will do our best to adapt and make sure your needs are met.

    We are striving to build an inclusive team, but we recognise there is always more to be done. In the last year, we’ve focussed on running workshops in collaboration with tech bootcamps, promoting self-education through our anti-racism reading list, and building diversity into our growth frameworks.

    If you would like to talk to us about these efforts, or have suggestions for how we can do better, we would love to hear from you.
