Rezigo launches to meet supply and demand crisis for property services
Property industry veterans have developed Rezigo, a secure, UX-forward online platform which simplifies the process of finding, booking, managing and paying available, local tradespeople to a few clicks. It will launch on 1 March 2022. Here’s a demo video. The ongoing skills and supply shortage means finding a reputable tradesperson who can quote for, let alone work on a property project within the next few months is almost impossible. Rightmove has reported a 15% rise year-on-year of new home enquiries, so this problem will only deepen in the coming months.
The new ‘virtual home concierge’ connects available, reliable, carefully vetted service providers with customers in need of a helping hand moving, renovating or getting odd jobs done on one user-friendly platform.

Rezigo’s founders have more than 20 years’ experience in the property industry and a Gross Development Value of more than £300,000,000. They’ve used their extensive knowledge of customer pain-points to build a sophisticated portal that lets users compare trade quotes, book jobs, pay suppliers, and leave ratings and reviews all in one place.
Founders Danny and Simone Nieberg have always phoned around for at least three quotes for every job they have worked on (which is a lot). This led them to make online quote gathering, storage and comparison a big part of Rezigo’s USP and UX.
The online marketplace uses next level UX designed especially to minimise stress. Simone Nieberg said: “Phoning around for quotes is a thing of the past.”
Be Dependable. Rezigo also works on the other side for suppliers who can manage all their jobs in one place and only pay a commission once they get paid. Hundreds of local and national suppliers are already signed up. Rezigo waste clearance supplier Just Clear it Ltd said: “ We’re open to all kinds of business, so Rezigo made total sense. With an eight-man-strong team we’re capable of taking on as much work as possible, too – Rezigo will help facilitate that.”
Rezigo’s founders searched for technology that would help them source and manage all aspects of their property projects. They couldn’t find it, so they developed the ‘perfect solution’ themselves.
Nieberg said: “We built a bespoke platform for my existing property business, which has evolved over the years in terms of functionality and complexity. And so, equipped with a solid understanding of the stresses associated with the home services sector, we set out to create the ultimate prop-tech solution.”
Rezigo is a community which will grow and improve all the time as people use, trust and love the user experience. At the point of launch it will have the following services in the UK and Wales, and more will be added very quickly:
Removals & storage
Nieberg said: “I’ve been absolutely floored by the reaction so far – from both suppliers and would-be customers. We built the Rezigo community to address pain-points for both, and there’s so much excitement and buzz around the platform already. I’ve had numerous comments in the realm of “Wow, I wish that existed when I moved home!”. It assures me that we’re creating something that will make a difference and fill the gap we envisioned.”
