A new estate agency dedicated to improving the house moving process has launched in the Gloucestershire and Worcestershire areas.

Founded by local property experts James Quinn and Andrew Ord, Canopy aims to simplify and streamline the home buying and selling process with its innovative ‘exchange ready’ concept.

Every house marketed by Canopy is prepared for exchange as soon as buyers are ready, speeding up the property transaction process while saving time, money and stress for all parties involved.

This is done by providing the sellers conveyancing information and carrying out a RICS home survey before the property goes on the market.

James said: “Having spent years in the property and surveying sectors, we’ve identified the main pain points for home buyers and sellers.

“With Canopy, we’re addressing these issues head-on, starting with our local communities in Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.

“We’re excited to bring this fresh, efficient approach to the local property market and help more people move into their dream homes without the usual headaches.”

James is a RICS home surveyor who acquired GB Home Surveys in 2016, while Andrew has more than 13 years of experience managing his own surveying business and leading operational teams in large corporations.

Andrew added: “Buying a home is often seen as a stressful and prolonged process.

“With Canopy, we aim to change that by making it as smooth and hassle-free as possible.

“Our exchange ready homes mean fewer delays, fewer surprises, and more confidence for buyers and sellers alike.”
