About House-moves

Thank you for visiting our House-moves webpage!

Christine and Joanna set up the business House-moves in 2013 and have gone from strength to strength. We are a family run, independent Estate Agent with a difference.

Christine came from a strong 10 year career within the property market working for a leading Gloucestershire corporate agent with multiple branches.

Joanna came from a career in business management and marketing, they saw a gap in the market for an agent offering a more flexible approach with high family values, using the latest technology to maximise property exposure and modernising the selling experience to clients in Cheltenham and the surrounding areas compared to the many traditional high street agent.

Following several successful years House-moves was able to expand and brought on Peter and Michelle who excel in both their expert fields to further strengthen our brand.

Between us we can manage your property sale from start to finish ALL kept in house, giving you the reassurance you will always receive the House-moves highest quality of service.  From your initial valuation, floor plan, EPC, high quality photography through to the sales negotiation & sales progression to ensure your sale completes quickly and efficiently alleviating any of the stress involved.

With the constantly evolving world we are keen to take on new technology and now offer Interactive 3D Virtual Tours along with Video Virtual Viewings on all our properties.

We are regulated by The Property Ombudsman; this provides buyers/sellers with reassurance that they will receive the highest standards of customer service.

We are also Licensed members of NAEA (National Association of Estate Agents).

We have built strong relationships with local conveyancers, surveyors and financial advisors to further assist in your house move.
