About us and fees

Nest in Essex was founded back in 2014 by Nick Cheshire. Nick is a local resident who has worked in this area all of his career. He was working for smaller independent agent but identified the market was moving forward and advancing with technology.

He wanted to focus on two things. The client experience and marketing. As the agency where he worked was not willing to evolve Nick decided to step out on his own and do it his way.

Fast forward 5 years, Nest in Essex is now a recognised and trusted brand, with over 100 five-star reviews and having helped hundred more move home Nest in Essex has made a huge impact on the local market.

Nest in Essex is made up by a team of 3 Agents, 1 Agent assistant and 1 viewing specialist. A team that has taken 5 years to get together.

In the past 18 months Nest in Essex has collected several awards ranging from local awards like the British property awards, to regional and national awards.

We pride ourselves on being personal in our service and remarkable in our results.
