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 pioneering team, backed by Europe’s top VCs and led by an experienced, hands-on founding team. We're all contributing remotely to build a new era for home movers, with plans to optionally work from home 3 days of the week in the future when we can spend some time in our Farringdon office again.
When work is over, there’s always been plenty of socialising, from film nights to sports days or more socially distanced activities in the park.
If redefining an entire industry is something that motivates you, come and join the team at Nested.
