CM RENT & SALES has been established since 2003, letting & selling quality properties across the CM postcode area. Our image represents the modern, professional reputation which we have now established.

The company was created by Michael and Susannah Saville to provide a Sales, Letting and Management service to increase the reputation of local Estate & Letting Agents. With our own portfolio of properties built up since 1994, we had experienced some unimpressive service from Agents in the Braintree and Chelmsford areas. We felt that Essex needed an agent who delivered an honest and professional service to both Buyers, Sellers, Tenants and Landlords at a realistic price. We have now developed a reputation of quality, honesty, reliability and a professional but personal service. We became ARLA & NAEA members to ensure that our Clients are assured of our Professionalism and adherence to their stringent quality requirements and procedures, providing our clients with ARLA's Client Money Protection Bond.

Compare us to the rest... you'll be impressed!

Customer Testimonials

Thank you for your letter dated 18th November confirming successful move-in of our new tenants. Julia has asked me to convey her thanks together with mine for the efficient and professional manner in which cmRENT has dealt with the letting of her property. We have all been pleased with your services.

I am writing to express my sincere appreciation for the way you have assisted our first venture into becoming Landlords. Your professional, reliable and candid service has made the whole process effortless and worry-free. It has been great that either you or Susannah has always been accessible, prompt and competent. We look forward to expanding our portfolio with yourselves.

I currently rent a 2 bedroom apartment in Braintree through cmRENT. My girlfriend is moving in with me and we now want a larger house. We looked at many properties with cmRENT and other agents in Braintree. The difference in the types of properties and the service received was amazing! Some agents were unfriendly and unknowledgable, others were just rude! cmRENT have acted very professionally throughout my current tenancy and whilst searching, they have shown me some very good quality properties. Their website shows me all the information about each property and they send me new properties regularly by e-mail. At the viewings they are polite, friendly and are able to answer questions about each property and spend as much time with us as we need, not making us feel rushed or pressured. They truly are the best local Letting Agent in my experience.

Very helpful. Answered all questions. Very professional and helped us get moved in easily.

Representative was informative and friendly, really put us at ease during the process.

We're here to help you with all your mortgage and protection needs, and can do everything safely and conveniently by phone if you can't get into our branch. Whether your investment is your home, a portfolio of rental properties or a commercial premise, our comprehensive lettings and full property management service will give you complete peace of mind. Whether you are a new landlord looking to invest in your first buy to let property, or an existing landlord looking to expand your portfolio, we can help.

As property experts, we know how important tax is as part of understanding the potential rewards from buy to let property. As a landlord you will benefit from our professional lettings service and in-depth knowledge of the local rental market. This includes finding quality tenants, achieving the right rental price, minimising void periods, and most importantly, guiding you on all aspects of lettings regulation to keep you safe and legal, with complete peace of mind. Our vast database of people looking to rent makes finding your next tenant straightforward.

Moving home can be costly, making it hard to find your deposit, first month's rent and the other costs of moving. A Zero Deposit Guarantee costs the equivalent of one week's rent and replaces the traditional tenancy deposit, aiming to make renting more affordable. You review your Zero Deposit Guarantee quote online, having been introduced to us by your letting agent. There is an annual admin fee of 26 per tenancy collected every year by Direct Debit from the first anniversary. Zero Deposit is a trading name of Global Property Ventures Limited (10328435), which is registered at Business and Technology Centre, Bessemer Drive, Stevenage.

We are committed to being upfront and transparent about our charges, so it's important that you read this guide carefully so as not to delay securing your chosen property.
