Darren Yates

Head of Research

I joined Clearbell in October 2021 as the Head of Research, so 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.

Prior to joining Clearbell, I worked in a number of Research roles, including 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’m now delighted to be ‘client side’ and to have the opportunity to learn about a completely new 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.

During 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.
