Team Members

The First Step team are based in Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire and have all lived and worked in the area for over 30 years with strong links and knowledge of the surrounding counties.

We believe our honest and professional approach to property, as shown from our Testimonials, has helped many sellers and purchasers to a relatively stress free journey to their new homes.

Just like most people, through our collective business lives, we have seen and experienced many ups and downs in the World, which has sometimes had a positive effect for the UK and other times not. What we have predominantly established though, in our mature years, is a good grounded business sense and collectively feel through our honest negotiations with you, we can offer a friendly, rounded and professional service, unlike any you have dealt with before.
