First Union Estate Agency


First Union is the brainchild of John Chase.

John worked for Estate Agents for ten years before he decided to set up his own business.

He was able to raise capital because backers recognised his determination and motivation.

His message was simple, to run an estate agency successfully, you have at all times to be friendly, helpful and efficient.

John remains in charge at First Union.
