A YORK couple have ventured into the estate agency business as they bring an online to the area.

Nick and Sarah Neill have signed up to national sales and letting agent EweMove.

The move comes after 12 years in the property and mortgage market for Mr and Mrs Neill, who have worked in sales and brokering respectively.

Mr Neill said: “I had done plenty of research into franchising and saw EweMove.com as the perfect opportunity to become my own boss. We are really excited to bring this to York, and see the online model as a good way forward in this industry, where 95 per cent of people begin looking for a new home online. Sarah and I both have a lot of experience, and have enjoyed the new training we have been offered as part of the EweMove scheme.”
