"I have had the pleasure of working with Harry and Andrew at Yelverton for 20 years in both an investment and valuation capacity. They are extremely knowledgeable and pragmatic people who enjoy seeking out opportunities, transacting and getting deals done. They are also loyal and trustworthy and are not just clients now but friends."

"I must say working with Andrew is a delight . It is often said that ‘development is detail’ and Andrew is a master at the process. Development is also often about local  knowledge and Andrew is Mr Exeter . Our first partnership with Yelverton delivered Cricket Field Court which has been our best performer out of our 25 schemes - thanks Andrew."

Paul Oliver, CEO Curlew Capital

David Lee, Club Director of Exeter City Football Club

"Yelverton selected Global Student Accommodation as it’s capital and specialist student accommodation partner for the Exeter Football Club project in 2016. We have experienced throughout a close and rewarding partnership with Yelverton, supported by their specialism in the South-West development activity and previous track record in delivering a number of the best student accommodation schemes in Exeter. Yelverton conducted a patient land assembly process and delivered a viable planning consent on this extremely challenging urban regeneration project, which will provide long-term benefits to both student and sporting life in Exeter.
