Everyone loves meet the team!
This is Helen. Quite simply put: a superstar. Helen has worked in estate agency for 9 years before coming here to settle. This has been where she has pushed her own boundaries to be the very best version of herself.
I’ve truly grown as a person since working here, I’ve been encouraged to do more self-development. There’s always something to learn, to be inspired by. The simple change has given me the edge when talking to my clients and gaining the trust of buyers to agree some of the trickiest sales negotiations. I’m a process person, I live with lists and I’m at my happiest when my list is complete. Expanding my own boundaries and learning new techniques has given me the courage to achieve more than I ever thought possible. My understanding of not just selling but the science behind why people buy has been enlightening. I have to say, that I had no idea I could enjoy myself at work. It’s like a second home. I enjoy the challenge of making our wonderful clients happy in all the small ways, and some very very big ones.
I live in the heart of Lancaster too, I grew up here and now I have my own family. My 5 year old Thomas, who’s at a local school and my super husband plus our little bump! Ask me anything about Lancaster, it’s my home. My Sundays are spent with family who I’m devoted to, we love to take Thomas places to feed his curiosity as a growing 5-year-old boy, who never stops!
Say hello to Philippa. From a national online agency to a local boutique. Philippa has come full circle. Growing up in Portugal, and settling here 5 years ago Philippa has travelled very far. Philippa has moved a whopping 15 times. She is now settled, but her enthusiasm for life had us sold from her first interview.
“I’ve always loved homes, each time we’ve moved settling in has always been easy for me. It’s such a powerful change that can make the biggest difference to anyone, whether moving from their first home or into their last.”
Philippa has the softest dog called Enie. As a dog lover, her Sundays are spent walking in the lakes, eating ice cream on the pier at Arnside or travelling to spend copious amounts of time in trendy patisseries full of laughter with friends and family. Which is why Philippa enjoys getting to know our buyers and really delves into how we can match them up with the property of their dreams.

This is Tess. At 20 years old she holds the title of most moves at a record 19! Every member of her family has their own business and we have no doubt that post university she’ll be pursuing her very own dreams too. We’ll always have a place for her in our office, she attentive, caring and graceful. She’s one of the stylists for our photograph shoots to get everything prepared for our photographer and she’s very good at it!
“The styling part of the process is the most rewarding part for me. Bringing a home to life has become a part of the V Move signature style, and it just feels right to go from flower arranging to polishing apples, while dressing a bed to perfection. Seeing the difference is spectacular. Being part of V Move has taught me that the greatest results come from the desire to want to get a result, which is why Victoria insists on keeping our portfolio more focussed.”
Tess has a love of festivals and an amazing family, including: sister Molly, a photographer; a brother who has a landscaping business and her lovely dog George. She’s eaten and stayed in some of the world’s most exclusive hotels. Tess knows amazing service; she’s experienced it.
I’m Victoria, I didn’t set out to build what I ended up creating. I’m 34, have two children, Jack who’s 14 about to embark on his first GCSE year at QES and my little Isabella who is just going to high school age 11. My husband and I have been together for 15 years and married for a whopping 9 of those, for which he needs a medal! We have silly Tilly our black cocker spaniel. I have moved house, bought and sold 9 times in the last 15 years too. Our most recent was this summer. I love sleeping. I’m a big reader too.
It was my vision to build a great company that attracted like-minded clients and made the experience of V Move a lasting one. Imagine if you built something you are so proud of, how would you work with your clients? It’d be different, right? Well, it is. Every day. No one does it like I do.
Having created something so individual there’s no way of getting anything less than perfect. I surprised myself when I read my team’s quotes, I’ve grown a lovely collection of honest, rounded, ambitious people who care about their work. They care about getting things right, they care about being the very best they can be as individuals and as a team. I know that their hearts will ensure that everything they do is the right thing, and every day they make choices to help every one of our clients in every way possible. By enabling them to succeed, this, in turn, makes our houses achieve results our clients can only dream of.
