People Are Key to Our Success

Compass Elevation was born from the merger of two of the regions most established independent estate agents. Compass Property established in Bedford since 1995 and Elevation which began in Milton Keynes in 1992, together they have created one of the most versatile, respected and accomplished director owned property groups, across three counties, treating every client with integrity, respect and warmth.

We have a long history of commitment to our employees, our clients and the community within which we engage. In recent years we have supported a number of national, and also local charities, including Keech Hospice Care who we have supported for over 10 years. The Hospice provides free specialist care for adults in Luton and south Bedfordshire, and children from Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes, who have life-limiting and terminal illnesses supporting them to live pain and symptom free, to spend untroubled time with their family and friends, to understand what’s happening to them whilst staying out of hospital.

More recently, we hosted a charity golf day for the friends of Bedford hospital charity.
