Yates managing director Robin Yates is soon to retire, but will remain on a consultancy basis during the transition to Davis Tate.
Yates said: “We let and manage some great properties, and the time has come for us to join with a larger portfolio. This will ensure that our clients continue to receive a first-class service.”
Matthew Davis, joint managing director of Davis Tate, said: “Experienced people are essential to our business, and we are delighted to welcome the Yates staff into the Davis Tate fold.”
