Landmark move for agents

A MOVE to new offices at one of Corby’s iconic landmarks marks a turning point for commercial property specialists, Yates.

It is 18 months since the sudden death of the agency’s founder Jim Yates, but his legacy continues through the commitment of his wife Jane Yates and senior associate Magda Ocetek.

The two women, now based at offices in the grandstand of Rockingham Logistics Hub, share the same passion for doing business as Jim. The agency continues to work with clients looking for a range of services including management of commercial and residential block property.

Now, the next chapter of Yates is being written from the stylish offices, with far-reaching views across Northamptonshire.

“It has been a difficult time, but it is important we continue Jim’s legacy and remind people we are still open for business,” said Jane, who has worked in property management since 1988.

“We have extensive knowledge and experience of the property sector in Corby and the surrounding areas and know this is invaluable to clients looking to work with a team they can trust.”

Magda, who joined the agency in 2013, has undergone extensive training to be able to meet the requirements of each client including the technical aspects of tenancies and leases. She first worked in the residential sector but then began to focus more on the commercial side.

“A major part of our work is to liaise with clients and tenants,” said Magda, who credits Jim for helping her to gain the experience and know-how in this competitive sector. “New clients want to know that we have their best interests at heart and the experience.”

The agency’s main focus is on Corby and the surrounding areas where there are good indications that businesspeople are feeling more positive about the future.

Currently available through Yates, a 522 square foot retail unit in Adam and Eve Street in the centre of Market Harborough, and serviced offices at the Rockingham Business Centre in Corby, with sizes starting from 340 square feet.
