Our story

Since 2011, brothers Matt and Neil Baldock have developed Charles David Casson (CDC) to be a market leading sales and lettings agent in Chelmsford and have expanded to cover the whole of Essex with additional services in the commercial, auction, land & new homes as well as financial services and conveyancing.

We’ve also developed a specialism in letting and managing HMOs – houses of multiple occupancy and have built a reputation for passion and excellence in the property industry.

At CDC, we are 100% focused on the human side of estate agency. With a goal to make moving as stress free as possible, we have stripped the practice of estate agency back to basics, where people – as well as property – matter.

Our successful residential sales and lettings business was soon established as a blueprint formula and is today offered as a CDC Franchise and CDC Self Employed Property Partner opportunity.
