Buying and selling a property is probably the biggest financial and legal undertaking most of us will ever do. First Step ensure this process is kept simple by using common sense whilst dealing head on with any challenges that may arise and always keeping you informed.

A conveyancing solicitor is required when buying or selling a property, it is key that you leave this important job in the hands of a legal professional.

At First Step we understand your requirements and we are available at every step of the way ensuring that the sale of your property suits your timescale and the price you hoped for.

First Step do have a recommended conveyancing solicitor based locally who we use on a regular basis and can thoroughly recommend. Naturally you can use your own personal choice, this is just another option for you to consider. We also work closely with various Mortgage Advisors, again this is just an option we offer.

First Step for:

  • Residential Sales
  • Land & New Homes
  • Lettings
  • Shared Ownership

Whilst having a strong local awareness we also deal with Regional and National Developments and Land Aquisition.


Our head office Hub at Waterloo Farm on the Arlesey/Stotfold border offers a professional dedicated service specialising in all local areas across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire and beyond, expanding at a gradual pace.

Our mission, naturally to sell your property, BUT to offer sound advice, set clear upfront fees and give you a reliable service that you know you can depend on.

We provide bespoke marketing campaigns and your property will be showcased on the 4 main property portals, which are Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location.


We aim to be available when you need us, we are here before and after working hours Monday to Sunday 9:00am to 6:00pm.

As an independent flexible Estate Agent our costs are keen, and any savings are happily passed onto our clients. We are office based so do not incur the overheads of a high street shop, this means we keep client friendly hours instead of shop hours. With our refreshing honest approach, we can help you put the fun back into achieving your goal within our local property market.

  • Potential purchasers can call us Monday to Sunday 9:00am to 6:00pm.
  • All viewings will be carried out by a professional team member familiar with your property, (not casual weekend staff – who have yet to view your property).
  • We are flexible and will meet all prospective purchasers at your property to suit yourdiary and lifestyle schedules.
  • We attract more buyers as our shop door never closes.
  • Unlike other agents we offer late evening and weekend viewings to suit the busylifestyle of our clients especially commuters.

“I just wanted to take a minute to share some feedback in regards to my recent house sale. I thought First Step were excellent and I am really pleased with how you handled my sale. You constantly kept me informed with the whole process and answered all of my questions.”



“I’ve sold 2 and purchased 2 properties through First Step now and my in laws have rented with them on Fairfield. The team are great – incredibly knowledgeable and approachable. Can’t see us ever selling our house through anyone else and would always recommend them for both rentals and sales. 5 stars on all fronts.”



“To the First Step team, Many thanks for all your hard work in achieving the sale of our property. We are so very grateful for all your hard work in getting us to completion.”
