“A huge thank you to everyone at First Step who was involved with the sale of our home which was one of the largest properties on the north side of Fairfield Park. As a team you were very professional and supportive throughout our sale and your hard work and persistence was truly appreciated. You also provided significant support and invaluable advice during our buying process, something that is over and above the support you may expect from an estate agent. We‎ have no hesitation in recommending First Step.Thank You.”
