Husband and wife team, Matt and Andrea Markham opened Ewemove Cheadle Hulme, Cheadle Hulme back in 2017. A refreshingly different estate agent set-up, Matt and Andrea – who are Cheadle Hulme through and through – do things differently. They live right here, in the heart of Cheadle Hulme, and actually, have always lived round here.
Matt is a well-known face in Cheadle Hulme; he’s lived here all his life. Andrea lived nearby, too. Matt’s three grown-up children are all Lane End and Cheadle Hulme High School alumni, and the couple’s younger daughter is still at school here. So this is another truly local business. Andrea’s been in the property business for many years as she set up a conveyancing company to allow her to be at home with their daughter. Coupled with their local knowledge, this made estate agency a logical next step.
So why move with Ewemove? Well, with Ewemove, you have a unique combination of an award-winning national operation, combined with franchisees Matt and Andrea’s in-depth local knowledge and connections. To the Markhams, taking a franchise made sense. But, more than that, the Ewemove franchise made PERFECT sense. Ewemove’s numerous honours include:
Matt and Andrea LOVED the company’s philosophy and innovative approach and have also loved Ewemove’s unstinting support and training. Ewemove doesn’t allow just anyone to franchise with them. Matt and Andrea’s unwavering dedication to their clients makes them perfect for Ewemove. The stereotypical shiny, suited, salesy estate agent is a thing of the past.
Matt and Andrea’s enthusiasm for property is clear from their own home. The exquisite period house is absolutely stunning and, in estate agent-speak, beautifully presented and immaculate throughout.
Another director recently joined Matt and Andrea. The Wilmslow Lettings market now has the benefit of the equally diligent and equally dedicated Bina Joshi. Bina lives in Wilmslow and knows the SK9 property market back-to-front and inside-out.
Ewemove are a ‘different kind of estate agency’, but what makes them so? Yes, they understand their market and understand HOW people look for homes. Likewise, they understand WHAT people look for in a home. But, crucially, they also promise:
A thoroughly professional outfit, the Ewemove Cheadle Hulme and Wilmslow team specialise in the informal and personal touch. Matt, Andrea and Bina are also forthcoming with bags of helpful advice and expert tips to market your property and show it to its full potential. For example, did you know that empty homes are less likely to attract as much interest as furnished? Matt suggests borrowing tasteful furniture or picking up a few bargains via Facebook Marketplace or local charity shops.
Another misconception is that everything should be neutral. Far from it, says Matt. A little bit of character; of colour can make all the difference, as can a few personal touches. We’ve all heard about kerb appeal, but it’s vital. Tidy up, make the frontage attractive and clear. Failing to do so won’t just cost a sale; it could put people off even viewing.

Matt says the popularity of Cheadle Hulme properties shows no sign of waning. In fact, growth round here is above the national average. Demand for three and four-bedroomed semi-detached homes is off the scale. Consistently excellent – indeed, OUTSTANDING – schools such as Cheadle Hulme High School, Laurus Cheadle Hulme, along with Hursthead, Lane End and all the other high-performing and nurturing primary schools are a huge draw. Combined with the perfect proximity to Manchester and transport links yet countryside on the doorstep, it’s clear why EVERYBODY loves Cheadle Hulme.
