A 5* Rated, Multi-award winning & bespoke Estate Agency based in Rayleigh.

Nest in Essex was created by Nicholas Cheshire in 2014 with the aim of doing one thing. To change the standard of Estate Agency locally. Every persons situation is different, and that’s why a “one size fits all” Estate Agency is not possible. instead, we tailor each marketing strategy in order to achieve two things. 1) the highest possible sale price for your property. 2) the lowest possible purchase price of your new home. We achieve this through a well tested, perfectly perfected, and executed marketing strategy using our 10 step plan. Ultimately we will put you in the best possible position to meet your property needs.

Highest sale price

Our clients benefit from approx. 3-5% more money for their property when compared to the average in Essex.

Our agents

Our agents are licensed professionals that specialise in searching, evaluating and negotiating the purchase of property on behalf of the buyer. They will sell you real estate.

Nothing but the best standard

We ensure we focus on delivering the very best standard of service all round, which results in you getting the most interest on your home, resulting in the best price for you.

here is a genuine example of a picture advertised on Rightmove for a local property, whereby it was on the market for approx 5 months. We marketed the same home for 4 days and achieved over the asking price.

what could that mean for you? better results means more money in your pocket.
