Residential Valuation Surveyor
Darren qualified as a Chartered Valuation Surveyor in 2009 having trained with James Styles & Whitlock, a niche general practice firm, in Oxford. Following the firm's merger with Cluttons LLP, he was responsible for managing a number of commercial properties whilst carrying out valuation work for a range of clients and purposes, including secured lending and asset valuations for the University of Oxford, Oxford City Council and South Oxfordshire District Council among other clients. After being promoted to Associate in 2011, a combination of the daily commute from Northamptonshire to Oxford and the arrival of his first child led to a move to Aitchison Raffety and a specialising on valuation of commercial, mixed use and residential development property, principally for secured lending purposes. Darren worked for Berrys in Kettering for 18 months, undertaking landlord and tenant work alongside valuing residential and commercial property, before a return to Aitchison Raffety and, latterly, starting with Andrew Granger & Co in October 2019, where he carries out Level 2 Homebuyer Surveys (survey and valuation) and provide 'Red Book' market valuations of residential property for a range of purposes, including IHT (probate). Outside of work, Darren enjoys spending time with his young family, reading, walking and have been known to run although he prefers cycling. He has have ridden from Carcassonne to Barcelona (2016) and Geneva to Milan (2017) to raise money for Bloodwise.
