Reading Sales Manager - Estate Agency
Nested is redefining estate agency in the UK. Traditional agency is a solid platform to learn your trade, but it limits agents’ earning potential — and their ability to innovate. Great agents are stifled, and the customer experience has barely changed in decades.
Last year, we introduced the Nested Partnership: Bringing onboard best-in-class, hyper-local agents to effectively run their own businesses under the Nested brand. Agents on the Nested platform get a better work-life balance, more autonomy over how they work, and more control over their take-home. In turn, sellers get a better experience with an agent who’s motivated to get them the best possible outcome.
As one of the fastest-growing estate agents in London, we’re a wildly ambitious team — backed by leading VCs that funded the likes of Spotify and Revolut, and led by experienced, hands-on founders. If redefining the property industry is something that motivates you, and you’re looking to take your career to the next level — then come and join the Nested platform as an Area Partner!
As a Nested Area Partner, you’ll be in charge of your local strategy, pitch, marketing tactics, and your hours — and, as a result, your earnings. This is estate agency unlike anything you’ve experienced before; you’ll have the autonomy to grow your own estate agency business in the area you know best — from prospecting and canvassing, to valuing and negotiating.
You’ll be supercharged by Nested’s marketing budget that grows inline with your success; the more properties you list, the more you’ll have to spend. You’ll utilise your budget how you see fit — whether that’s sponsoring a school fête, or running an advert in the local newspaper. We trust our area partners to run their own local advertising, with our marketing professionals on-hand for support at every step.
When it comes to your clients, you’ll manage the relationship from start to finish — acting as their single point of contact throughout their Nested journey. You'll have a smart selling app and in-house support at your disposal, including dedicated chain managers and a bespoke buying agent service.
The cherry on top? A commission structure that actually rewards you fairly for your hard work and skill. Starting at 75% of exchanged income and increasing up to 100%, working with Nested gives you the opportunity to take your earnings to the next level.
This is a truly all-encompassing role that lets you do estate agency your way, whilst supported by Nested’s brand, products and services.
- We’re looking for Reading's best estate agent. We expect you to have at least 5-10 years of top industry experience valuing residential property, winning business, selling stock and delighting customers.
- A clear strategy and understanding of what it takes to manage a marketing budget, generate leads and build a local valuation machine.
- A truly entrepreneurial spirit and unrivalled work ethic. Self-employment isn't for everyone: If your clients don't sell, you don't get paid. You'll need a genuine passion for your craft, and a highly proactive attitude.
- Unrivalled knowledge of your patch: You’ve lived in your local area for years, and know all the best amenities, schools and hotspots.
- Alignment with the Nested brand, and a customer-centric approach: We expect you to live and breathe the Nested values, and be obsessed with providing the best possible outcome (and experience!) for your clients.
- Strong social media skills would be a bonus, but not essential. If you don’t know your hashtags from your TikToks, we’re on-hand to support — but we do expect genuine enthusiasm to build your brand and engage with your community.
- A generous £15,000 income support package. As a self-employed agent, you’re not paid a base salary. We’ll support you financially whilst you build your pipeline to make sure you’re not under pressure in your first few months.
- Our Sales Progression, Buying Agency and Customer Care teams are included as standard to help delight your customers and allow you to focus on what you do best.
- An intuitive, market-leading customer app designed to provide you with exclusive property insights, manage viewings on behalf of the sellers, and make your communication with your clients as smooth as butter.
- The chance to be a part of a values-driven estate agency with ambitious growth plans, an active Area Partner Slack community, and hands-on training to help you develop your career.
- Truly flexible working, with the ability to work where you want, when you want, and how you want.
