Our Story

We believe homebuyers and sellers deserve better

Buying a home means countless months of searching, endless alerts and pushy agents hawking less-than-ideal properties. Oh, and the nagging feeling that the best properties are sold long before you hear about them (if you hear about them).

Selling a home? That’s even trickier.

The clock starts ticking and the initial promise of a great price quickly evaporates. Soon, you've had half of London for a viewing. Then your listing goes stale and buyers start wondering what's wrong with your property.

We’ve been there. And we think there’s a better way.

More joy. Less compromise.

Your home is where you live, work and spend precious time with people you love. It’s also one of the most important financial decisions you’ll ever make.

At Ostrich, we offer buyers and sellers more choices and a better experience. Like giving serious buyers access to hidden properties before they hit the market. With no hard sell.

If you’re a homeowner, we’ll help you find the perfect buyer — without the mania of the market, juggling endless viewings and showing off your home on Rightmove or Zoopla. And we put you in control of your property sale. After all, it’s your home.
