Property people: Dacres Commercial

Commercial property firm, Dacres Commercial, has appointed James Witty to its healthcare team as a graduate surveyor.

Witty joins Dacres Commercial from Leicestershire County Council and he has also worked at Christie & Co in Leeds.

He said: “Having completed a Real Estate MSc at the University of Reading, I joined the commercial property industry in 2018 and started studying for the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, which I will complete in 2023, giving me Chartered Surveyor status.

“Having worked in Leeds on medical and hospitality valuations, I moved into a more general practice role at Leicestershire County Council, working across agency, property management and valuation.

“When the opportunity came up at Dacres, I was keen to move back to Leeds.

“Dacres Commercial is a thriving commercial agency, with a wide breadth of property and asset management services, specialist healthcare department and investment agency. There will be plenty of variety within the role and I’m looking forward to working with such an experienced team.”

Head of Dacres Commercial, David Ogilvie, said: “We are very active in the primary care property sector nationally across all disciplines including investment agency, valuation, and lease advisory.

“We have a blue-chip client base including a number of institutional clients as well as GP practices, NHS Trusts, specialist developers, banks and other specialist lenders

“James was the ideal candidate for the role. With some relevant experience and an eagerness to develop his valuations skills, he is a welcome addition to our team.”

Dacres Commercial operates from its main office in Leeds and is part of property group Dacre, Son & Hartley, which has links with other offices in the group across West and North Yorkshire.
