Here we cover some of the previous properties we have marketed, along with their sucsess and reviews from the owners themselves.

Sovereign Court, Rayleigh

This homeowner was on the market with a large agent for 93 days… with no sale. 

In just 7 more days Nest in Essex had sold the property, over the asking price AND had them moved into their new home.

Kingfisher Crescent, Rayleigh

This homeowner tried several agents over a 12 month period, with all failing to sell the property. Nest stepped in with a bespoke marketing strategy and sold the property in a matter of weeks.

Cordelia Crescent

This homeowner was promised £25,000 LESS by another agent. Nest managed to achieve the full asking price (£25,000 more than the other agent) in just 10 days of marketing.

I can’t thank Nick and his team at nest in Essex enough, from start to finish the level of service was second to none. Nick kept me informed on a regular basis and if I ever needed advice or info he would always find time to help.

Highly recommend Nest – amazing service from start to finish! so knowledgeable. our House sold in 4 days after 1st viewing and we wouldn’t have completed in the 3 months we did if it wasn’t for Nick – to say he went above and beyond is an understatement! By the end of our sale/purchase others in the chain had estate agent envy! Wouldn’t hesitate to use Nest if we ever decided to move again. Thanks guys!

We have sold and are buying with Nest. I can honestly tell you my stereotyped mind of estate agent has been officially changed by Nick from Nest, and also his team. Photos, service, valuation, communication, all 10/10. Thank you for all you hard work.
