Ok, so based on the above statement you might be doubting my maths skills, but I can assure you when it comes to mental arithmetic I did pretty well at school!
In all seriousness, My Home Move celebrates its sixteenth birthday this month, and from what started out as an idea to challenge the way conveyancing was conducted by High Street Solicitors we have grown into the UK’s leading provider of mover conveyancing services.
In 2001 the world was a very different place. There was no iPhone or Zoopla and Northern Rock and Lehman Brothers were still trading and making big profits. These were the days when interest only mortgages were on every lender’s product list and the property market was booming. However within a matter of only six years, everything had changed as the market crashed.
It is true, times were difficult but we saw this as an opportunity, a silver lining. While others licked their wounds, we regrouped and invested – by identifying a niche in the market for a service that was really driven by technology and exceptional customer service, we knew we could grow a scalable business that provided the slickest, smartest and speediest conveyancing service in the country.
Over the past 16 years we have broken many industry records, claiming industry firsts for our ABS status, use of online technology, creation of an in-house Learning & Development Academy and commitment to voice biometrics. Alongside this we have gone from a standing start in 2001 to completing around 50,000* transactions in 2016.
But how does 16 years equal one every 2.5 minutes?
Let me do the maths for you….
- 8 hours in a working day x 60 minutes = 480 minutes
- 480 x 5 working days in a week = 2400 minutes
- 2400 x 52 weeks a year = 124,800 minutes in a year
- 124,800 ÷ 50,000 completions a year = My Home Move completes a case every 2.5 minutes
That’s an awful lot of people we have helped over the last 16 years. Happy Birthday My Home Move!
