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

We had seen a few Homes advertised with other Agents but they didn't inspire us, so we spoke to cmRENT. We liked the way they dealt with our initial enquiry and they found us the perfect Home. We dealt with Susannah Raven, their Lettings Manager from start to finish and we were very impressed with the way she handled the whole process. The credit checks were processed very quickly and we moved in within a couple of weeks! I would recommend cmRENT to anyone looking to rent a Quality Home.

The team at cmRENT have always been proactive and totally committed to ensuring that my Tenants are happy, dealing promptly and efficiently with any problems, large or small. They can always be trusted to act in my best interests, as I spend a great deal of time outside of the UK, this is one thing I no longer have to worry about. I cannot commend them highly enough.

Morning, Thanks for letting me know about the inspection prior to us leaving, I thought there may be an inspection around that time and I am rather glad. Please we will be leaving the house in very good order so if anything looks odd or out of place to you donít hesitate to contact us even if itís by email. I would just like to say a very big thanks to the whole team there at cmRENT! Jacques and I have moved around a lot over the past 2 years and we have never come across anyone nearly as professional as you lot! Thanks a million!!! Youíre all brilliant!

From Our Website

In 2003, CM Rent & Sales started out with one aim, to help local people move in Essex. Since then we have grown our business and have a reputation of being honest, reliable and professional. We are local people with local knowledge here to help make your property move a success. We recognise that your property is one of your most valuable assets, and that professional marketing advice, and the ability to tailor an individual marketing plan, with an exclusive property presentation and advertising is essential to achieve the best outcome.

Your information is being collected and processed by Countrywide for the purposes of providing the service and/or products you have requested. Personal data will be processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 and all other applicable data protection law and regulation, such as the General Data Protection Regulation. We may market products and services to you under the lawful basis of legitimate interests. Should you not wish to receive any unsolicited marketing from us you have the right to object to this processing by emailing

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 understand the importance of taking care of our tenants from viewings to property maintenance and aftercare. As part of Countrywide, the UK's largest residential property group, we can offer you a full range of professional services to ensure you are looked after throughout every stage of your tenancy. 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. Through Countrywide Mortgage Services, we have access to thousands of mortgages covering high street and specialist lenders - some of which may even be exclusive.
