Yvonne is a Partner in our Property and Asset Management (PAM) team based in London.
She is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and joined the firm in the summer of 2017 bringing over 35 years’ of experience in Property and Asset Management.

Having worked with a range of organisations which include Helix Property Advisors, RNIB, JP Morgan, The Worshipful Company of Mercers and two local authorities she has worked client side and agency side.

With her colleagues she is tasked with setting up and developing a business centre that provides clients with a service prior to acquisition and then follow-up services beyond purchase.

The team provide pre-acquisition advice, due diligence, on-boarding of investments (single let, multi-let, all regions all sectors of commercial property). During Gerald Eves stewardship ensuring that value is added and maintained, cash flow is strong through rent collection, the fabric of the building is compliant and kept in accordance with the lease and the investment is always ‘sale ready’ should the client wish to liquidate at any point.

Specific experience
Yvonne has been in a leadership role for some time spinning many plates to ensure teams bring together their talents, differences, experiences and knowledge to create the best outcome for all stakeholders, be they clients, colleagues, tenants or the wider professional team.

This has produced significant successes whilst advising the Daily Mail Pension Fund, six AIB Belfry Funds, high net worth individuals and private offices for example The Bank of Kuwait. Within these funds Yvonne was instrumental in increasing capital value year on year through aggressive asset management and selective purchase and sales strategies.
This has been achieved by building strong relationships and communicating with investors in plain English, providing support from an accepted offer to a mobilised site with minimal fuss and a no nonsense approach.
