Rental and Property Management Services.

Welcome to Nest in Essex Rental and Property Management Services. Founded in 2014 by Nicholas Cheshire, our focus has always been on providing a service that’s customised to the unique needs of each client. We understand that in the world of property management, no two clients are the same, so we make a point of understanding your specific needs and tailoring our services accordingly.

We offer an array of letting packages, each meticulously designed to provide the utmost care for your property. We take on the burden of management, ensuring everything runs smoothly, so you don’t have to.

You may wonder why we don’t advertise our Rental and Management services more widely. The reason is simple: we value quality over quantity. To maintain our high service standards and personal touch, we limit the size of our property portfolio. We believe that if we manage too many properties at once, we risk losing the personal connection and attention to detail that we pride ourselves on. We are committed to ensuring that our clients never feel like just another number in our books.

So, if you’re interested in our services, please don’t hesitate to get in touch through our website or via a personal recommendation. By managing our portfolio carefully, we ensure that our high service standards and personal touch are never compromised

Let’s talk about Jo.

She’s been using Nest in Essex for about five years now, and she’s got quite a story to tell. Jo’s time with us has been filled with great experiences, a testament to the quality of service we strive for. Jo has seen first-hand how hard our team works to keep tenants happy, to resolve issues quickly, and to keep properties in tip-top shape. And Jo’s journey doesn’t stop at being a Landlord. She’s recommended us to others, sold a property, and even bought a new one, all with the help of our team. But don’t just take it from us. Here’s Jo herself sharing her thoughts on her experiences with the Nest team in this short video.

Different Packages.

Nest in Essex provides a variety of packages to meet different landlord needs. The ‘let only’ package includes services like property listing, accompanied viewings, tenant screening, and more, great for landlords who like hands-on management. For those who prefer to step back, our ‘management’ packages provide added services like routine inspections, around-the-clock repair service, rent collection, and even full rental protection. It’s all about offering the level of support each landlord needs to keep their property in top shape and their investment secure, so if you dont see the service your looking for, simply reach out as we can tailor and custom most of our packages to suit the needs of our clients.

Switching Letting Agents?

Are you considering switching your property management to us from another letting agency? At Nest in Essex, we completely understand that it can feel awkward or even a bit daunting. In fact, sometimes landlords can be hesitant to make the switch simply to avoid that awkward conversation. But rest assured, our team is here to smooth out the entire process. All you need to do is send us one email. From that point on, we’ll handle everything else – from checking your current contract terms to communicating with your current agency. We aim to make the switch seamless and stress-free for you, with minimal disruption to your tenants or income. Let us take care of the details so you don’t have to
