    Question Is it correct English to say: "Let we sell or rent your property"

    Is it correct English to say: "Let we sell or rent your property"
    or is Let us?

    Thanks.

    Think of these statements as having an understood "You" in front which means the objective form of the pronoun has to follow.

    [You] let us sell...
    ^=object
    we can not be used in the objective form.
