Matthew Baldock LLB


The older (and to his frustration the shorter) of the Baldock Brothers, Matt has now been an agent for around 19 years, starting as an Office Junior on Duke Street and working his way up through the corporate ranks before owning Charles David Casson. Matt loves the fact that he gets to meet new people everyday and that he gets to help them move on to the next chapter of their life story. Matt has lived in Springfield his whole life and has three boys, Freddie, Henry and Billy.

Neil Baldock


The ‘little brother’ Neil, born and bred in Chelmsford, Neil went to Tyrells and The Boswells School and still lives in Springfield. A former police officer, Neil is an excellent problem solver for our clients. Neil oversees the Lettings & Property Management portfolio here at CDC and is able to offer specialist advice on all aspects of buy to let and property investment in Chelmsford and all areas of Essex. Neil is happy to offer advice to landlords even where the property is not being purchased through our agency and would welcome an informal chat with you regarding your investments. Neil is also well versed in HMO Management as we are one of the only agencies in Chelmsford which has a specialist HMO and rooms to rent department. Neil is Matthews younger brother and has a son named Michael.

She looks after a portfolio of properties across Chelmsford and South Essex dealing with the whole tenancy process for our landlords and tenants. Jasmyne is an expert in lettings legislation and she enjoys nothing more than problem solving for our clients and making sure things are resolved.

Jasmyne lives in the Dengie area and in her spare time enjoys relaxing and socialising with her friends.

Bradley Hanness

Sales Manager

Brad is someone we have tracked for a number of years and we were delighted when he joined us in 2020. He brings with him 9 years’ experience in the Essex market and has a really friendly way about him which makes him very popular with both buyers and sellers.

Brad tells us he’s a decent footballer but he also tells us he’s a Blackburn Rovers fan so we’ll reserve judgement!

Les Hack

North Essex Manager

A very familiar and popular face in the industry, Les has over 36 years Estate Agency experience across the whole Essex market. Whilst he lives in Chelmsford, Les is widely regarded as ‘Mr Kelvedon’ and we are delighted to have an agent and person of his calibre in our team.

Outside of work Les enjoys nothing more than going fishing.

Macey Smith

Lettings Negotiator

Macey has 3 years Estate Agency experience, in particular dealing with properties on the A12 corridor from Chelmsford to Clacton. Macey joined us this year and is a lettings superstar, her constant communication with prospective tenants means she can call a suitable applicant for nearly any property without waiting for it to appear on the websites.

Outside of work she is kept busy by her horse Harry and also likes watching football.

Jessica Pittman

Executive Assistant

The engine room of the office, Jess joined us on an apprenticeship scheme back in 2018 and has proven herself to be not only a delight, but an invaluable team member. Incredibly curious (nosy) she has a broad knowledge of the business and fantastic administration skills to keep Matt & Neil in order and the office running smoothly.

Ed Casson

Property Partner – Bishops Stortford and Dunmow

Ed has a wealth of knowledge and experience in property and has been working with Matt and Neil for the last 15 years on and off. Formerly a partner in the firm, Ed now runs his own business within our brand and is also responsible for the Fine and Country sister business we have here at Imperial House. Ed has certainly found his niche in the Fine and Country business but is also able to advise on lettings, land and new homes and all types of property sales.

She now enjoys using her experience by applying these skills when working with property owners, landlords, investors and tenants.
