Darren Yates

Consultant (Research)

Having previously been CIearbell’s Head of Research, I now work with the firm as a Research Consultant and a key part of my role is regular report writing in order to keep our investors up to date on economic and property market trends.

During my career, I have worked in a number of varied Research roles, including as Head of European Retail Research at Cushman & Wakefield, Head of Research at Carter Jonas and Head of Global Capital Markets Research at Knight Frank.

Having spent over 20 years working for commercial property agents, I enjoy working ‘client side’ in what is a very different part of the real estate industry.

I have a degree in Modern Languages (French & Italian) from the University of Leicester, which included a year spent abroad in Turin and Rouen.

In my free time, I enjoy being outside in the garden and keeping fit through rowing and running. I enjoy anything to do with history (especially Tudor) and visiting old houses and gardens.
