Steve Chester

020 8898 3459 | 07946 481 961 |

Steve has been arranging commercial mortgages since 1988.

Having graduated as a Bachelor of Law in the summer of 1988, he took a position with a specialist firm of commercial mortgage brokers handling a wide variety of loan applications for the owner occupied market. He left in 1995 to take a position as a finance broker for a leading firm of commercial agents.

During the following 11 years, Steve gained extensive experience in hotels and leisure along with healthcare. He has during that time acted on behalf of a number of multiple operators, been responsible for arranging large single asset facilities and managed a nationwide team of brokers.

In May 2006, he decided to pursue an independent career, setting up Axis shortly after. He prides himself on his experience, the relationships he has with the lending and wider professional community and of his accessibility and drive on behalf of the clients for which he acts.
