Explaining Executor Solutions’ five year history

OUR new Group Account Director Simon Bennett is often asked by prospective clients “Who are Executor Solutions?  What are your credentials?”
Simon’s happy to tell them about our sister company Moving Made Easy’s five year history and how success helping house builders with their Part Exchange and Assisted Move schemes led to a natural progression into probate property sales.
Simon explains: “Moving Made Easy was founded in 2010. It’s grown from selling 200 homes in its first year to over 550 homes in the last 12 months and has sold 2,200 homes in total. Established with just four members of staff it now directly employs 34 people.
“Our aim was to offer something outside of the norm; dedicated customer service and open communication, keeping customers informed at every step, as well as a straightforward, hands-on approach.”

That’s where Executor Solutions comes in.

“The Moving Made Easy team were asked to sell a couple of probate properties by solicitors. They quickly realised there was a complete gap in the market for someone offering this type and level of service. Consequently, Executor Solutions launched at the start of 2015, with Darren Leggett as Business Development Director. Already we’re a team of six – and growing.

“In the same way that Moving Made Easy helps house builders, Executor Solutions’ aim is to take away any hassle from solicitors associated with selling probate property.  We’ll take care of the whole process from valuation to legal completion and, whereas conventionally someone will put their property with one estate agent, we’ll market it with three agents and drive the sale forward to achieve the best possible price.

“A conventional sole agency contract can be anything upwards of six weeks, but we don’t tie customers into any contract and secure sales for 80% of all properties within the first four weeks.”

So, while Executor Solutions may be a relatively new name on the block, its people, philosophy and procedures certainly aren’t. A quick sale and the best price is our promise and we operate on a no sale, no fee basis. As well as solicitors we also work with individuals, trusts and charities nationwide.

Simon Bennett joined Executor Solutions earlier this year, bringing with him a vast amount of sales and marketing experience at major house builders, including Redrow and Stewart Milne Homes.
