Matt and Andrea Markham – owners of Ewemove Cheadle Hulme, Cheadle Hulme’s newest and most refreshingly different estate agent – are Cheadle Hulme through and through. Living in the heart of Cheadle Hulme, having always lived round here, setting up Ewemove Cheadle Hulme was a logical step.
Matt grew up in Cheadle Hulme and Andrea also lived locally. Matt’s eldest children all went to Lane End and Cheadle Hulme High and Matt and Andrea’s daughter is still at school in Cheadle Hulme – another truly local business then! Andrea’s been involved with property over 9 years, having set up a conveyancing business so she could be at home with their daughter. It seemed natural to progress into estate agency.
So why Ewemove? Matt and Andrea knew a franchise made sense, and multi-award winning Ewemove made PERFECT sense. Ewemove’s many accolades include: Best Estate Agency Franchise 2016 (Sunday Times); independent franchise consumer group Smith + Henderson 5 star rated – the ONLY estate agent to be 5 star rated; and rated ‘excellent’ on Trustpilot. Matt and Andrea were also impressed by Ewemove’s ethos and service as well as the levels of support and training they’d benefit from. They were hooked, they say, by Ewemove’s fresh, modern approach.
Matt and Andrea say they’re absolute sticklers for first-class customer service. This made them perfect for Ewemove, too, as Ewemove like to franchise to people who can talk to people – not your stereotypical salesy sorts. Estate agency wise, Ewemove Cheadle Hulme offers the best of both worlds. They have access to all the technology and marketing tools of the high-street agents, but no High Street office so no over the top overheads. This means they can invest more in making the business work.
Another, rather lovely, way in which Ewemove are completely different is their Home Move Boxes, in conjunction with other local businesses. People moving in – or out – are given a box full of lovely treats! This may be a cafetiere and biscuits – or even a bottle of fizz.
Matt and Andrea’s passion for property is clear from the second they start talking. Their own home is absolutely stunning – a classic Cheadle Hulme period property which they’ve decorated beautifully. They are really enjoying their new career and have got off to a flying start, with new instructions and sales coming thick and fast. Indeed, they can hardly keep up with demand for three-bedroom semis – especially in catchment of Cheadle Hulme’s superb schools. If you’re thinking of selling, get in touch!
So, they love property, and loved what Ewemove had to offer – obviously they love Cheadle Hulme, too! The schools, of course, and the pubs and restaurants. They’re fans of their local, the Governors, as well as the Hesketh, the John Millington and Platform 5. They also love that the village has many different areas and are full of praise for Snape and Sons, the Board Cafe and Pimlotts. Both Matt and Andrea are still in touch with many childhood friends from Cheadle Hulme – in fact Matt has known Wendy, founder of I Love Cheadle Hulme since the mid 1980’s!
I LOVE what Ewemove Cheadle Hulme have to offer. If you’d love a new and definitely different estate agent to sell YOUR Cheadle Hulme property, they’ll be happy to hear from you. And you, too, can look forward to your Home Move goody box!
