About Settled

Our Product

The internet has transformed almost all of the transactions we make in life - in just a few clicks we can now order a taxi, transfer money abroad and book a holiday of a lifetime. With the tools we have available at our fingertips, things have become a bit more straightforward.

Despite this change impacting so many industries, there is one area that still needs some work. When we think of buying or selling a home it can feel pretty overwhelming; where do we go to sell our most valuable asset, where do I get a mortgage, what happens next, do I need a lawyer? This is where Settled comes in.

Settled was created with the dream of making things easier so we can all feel a bit more Settled.

Our Company

Settled was founded by brother and sister team Gemma and Paul Young. Having worked for the likes of Google and different real estate companies, they combined their experience of property and technology and their great passion for empowering consumers (rather than a middleman) and they worked with lots of sellers and buyers to reimagine what property transactions should be like for this generation.

They saw that buyers and sellers were yearning for a more open and modern solution that allowed them to stay close to their most valuable asset: their home.

Their vision for the future of property is one where finding, financing and selling a home is swift and straightforward; helping us all get Settled more easily.

Our Vision

At Settled we believe a house, a flat or even a houseboat, is always a home... even when a for sale sign goes up.

Homes are made up of memories, the happy & sad moments, the love & the laughter. You know your home better than anyone and that’s why you are the best person to sell it.

So, when that time comes to move on, keep the keys in your hands until you’re ready to pass them on.

However you choose to do this, we’re by your side every step of the way, giving you everything you need, making sure you get Settled.
