About us

Property lettings and management

Our story so far...

F1rst move is a privately owned independent property company specialising in residential lettings and property management.

We are proud to offer a high quality and professional service, rarely matched by other agents. What sets f1rst move apart from other agents is the wealth of experience, hands on approach and a personal touch that makes us treat every property as if it were our own.

F1rst move was established by Directors, Josh Jeffries and James Flanagan after becoming increasingly frustrated by the service received from the letting agents managing their own portfolio. They have built up a large property portfolio themselves and they have over 30 years combined experience within the property sector. They have a vast amount of knowledge and can provide advice on many aspects within the property market.

F1rst move can tailor a service around a landlords specific needs and feel we can offer exactly what a landlord is looking for from their managing agent.

Our offices are located in chippenham, Wiltshire and Trowbridge, Wiltshire and our dedicated team aim to provide a first class service that is second to none.
