  • From start to finish these guys are great, they are very supportive and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Would recommend MOV8 to anyone buying or selling (have used them for both). They were the first I thought of when selling my property as they had been brilliant with the sale of my late sisters home and subsequent purchase of a property for my niece. Special mention to Evie Moir 10/10. Thanks for everything.

  • I can genuinely say that selling our property and, purchasing our new property, through MOV8 was faultless! From the beginning with the Valuer, through to the completion by the Solicitor, including all others involved throughout the process, I cannot fault the service which we received. Every person played their part and kept us fully involved throughout - there were one or two persons who stood out and went the extra mile to help us through the process when we had specific queries, they were able to explain everything to us as we went along and continually communicated with us. I would not hesitate to recommend MOV8 to others in the future.

  • Fixed price does not mean reduced service. We got a professional efficient service with good communication every step of the way, for both our sale and purchase. Absolutely no reason to pay more to a % Estate Agent for the same (or worse) service. Would definitely recommend and use MOV8 again.

  • We are delighted with the service provided by Mov8 and the whole team.  It has produced a satisfactory sale of our property and we are also using MOV8 to handle and purchase a property.  Our offer for it has been accepted. We now await the conclusion of our Edinburgh property sale to allow us to proceed with the purchase.  Once again, many, many thanks to all the team at Mov8!

  • We found Mov8 extremely professional, pro-active and reliable. Our flat sold within 3 days and the fact that they are linked to all the major property advertising websites such as ESPC and Rightmove really helped to generate a lot of interest very quickly in our property. I would like to particularly mention Susan Lamb who was very helpful and took care of our transaction from beginning to end.
