#MIVReveals - Settled

Brother and sister duo Gemma and Paul Young, co-founders of online property platform Settled, will be joining us on Twitter for #MIVReveals on Wednesday 25th October at 4pm.

Officially launched in 2016, Settled has listed over £500m of homes saving home owners over £6m in fees.  An online property platform with a mission to create the best possible experience for buyers and sellers; beyond a model that focuses on getting as much money from every single stage of the process to a place where people are in control and where technology helps them achieve the perfect completion scenario - all at a lower cost.

After graduating, Gemma spent time working in an estate agent in her early career, before joining Google where she stayed for many years, working across three continents. Inspired by technology’s transformative power, Gemma and Paul saw a gap in the property market for a consumer-powered real estate model.  They continuously witnessed their friends and family go through common and seemingly avoidable stresses and strains when buying and selling homes. They felt passionately that this process could be improved and decided this had to be their cause, so they took the plunge and launched Settled - an online platform to simplify and complete the home transaction model by removing third-party agents and connecting home sellers and buyers. 

Gemma's passion is to help real estate transactions to become perfect and that means inexpensive, transparent, accessible and stress-free. Settled does exactly that - it helps people to feel more ‘Settled’.

Gemma has been recognized for her leadership in the company, and earlier in June this year, was selected to take part in the London Mayor’s International Trade Mission to Silicon Valley - an initiative connecting UK businesses to leading US investors and founders. Most recently, she was shortlisted as a finalist in the Forward Ladies National Awards - the largest celebration of successful women throughout the UK.
