Kate Vincent Regional Partner
Kate started her career in banking, spending ten years in mortgage marketing and new product development.
Having moved several times with her family, firstly from London to Milton Keynes then onto Northampton and Market Harborough before finally, settling in Stamford, Kate decided to put her home moving experience to good use and set up her own relocation and home search consultancy.
