ST IVES-based property services company movewithus claims to be one of only residential property companies in the UK that can boast record growth and results, with profits up by nearly one-third in the past year.

It was also named in the Sunday Times Profit Track 100 at the end of 2008 at number 24 - the highest position for a residential property company.

Movewithus, which is celebrating 12 years in the business and is still expanding its workforce, was founded by four local estate agents in the mid-1990s, has expanded from a humble office in St Ives town centre to taking over Grant Hall, a three floor lakeside office building on the St Ives business park off Harrison Way.

Robin King, movewithus founding director rewarded each of the staff of over 200 local workers with a bottle of bubbly and a birthday cake to celebrate the milestone - but with strict instructions to save any partying until after office hours.
