Our team

Steph Edwards

Steph first worked in the Midlands regional branch for 10 years. When the opportunity to relocate and join the Salisbury branch team came, she jumped at it. Steph held all sorts of different roles in Salisbury from office manager to sales associate and finally assistant agent for two and a half years. Her husband's job took him to Bletchley, and fortunately a vacancy for an agent arose at Bedford, so the family is all together again! Steph arrived in May 2012 and is enjoying meeting everyone. expand text
