About us

Our vision

As humans, we strive for shelter; to make roots. Our vision is to simplify the way people buy and sell homes, enabling them in their search for sanctuary. We exist to make people feel truly settled.

What is Settled?

Everything you need to complete, simplified

The world has changed. People’s lives are busier and more demanding than ever. From the services they use, they desire simplicity, control and honesty; Settled provides all three, fixing how the transaction of homes takes place for good.

We unpack the home buying and selling experience, connecting all the steps and fixing the broken bits. We unite buyers and sellers, giving them the power to interact and make the choices that are theirs to make. In doing so, we’re helping to reduce fall through rates, strengthen chains and accelerate the journey to completion.

Our tech is developed with love and conviction. We fundamentally believe that this approach is key to a happy future where people are liberated and fulfilled in their daily lives. That future is our dream.
