Move with Us is a British-based property company that provides estate agency, asset management and corporate property services to estate agents, home builders, financial institutions and consumers. Their headquarters are located in St Ives in Cambridgeshire. The company has twice been named on the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list and in 2008 was named in the Profit Track 100 list.

Move with Us operates a network of estate agents across the UK, currently numbering over 1,200. They offer a wide range of property related products including estate agency referral, conveyancing and home-utility switching.

Move with Us also offers property sale services to many UK-based home builders and financial institutions. The properties acquired in such transactions are known as 'corporate properties' and are sold by Move with Us via their network of estate agents and directly to consumers through the brand name white hot property.

History[edit]

Formed as Partners in Property in 1997 by four estate agents operating in and around the Cambridgeshire region, the company sought to provide revenue-generating services for independent estate agents to enable them to compete with larger corporate agencies. In 2000, the group expanded and began providing managed part-exchange services for UK home builders, using the agents in their network to value and sell the properties on the home builder's behalf. In 2001 they expanded further, incorporating the valuation and sale of properties acquired by building societies, mortgage lenders and other financial institutions in probate transactions.

In summer 2008, Move with Us launched their brand 'whitehot property'. The brand was designed to differentiate properties on the market which come from corporate sellers, as opposed to private sellers. Only properties that have been through a controlled, independent valuation process and have no 'sales chains' are branded as 'white hot properties'.
