Yvette Mallinson


After completing a post-graduate Estate Management Diploma at South Bank University, Yvette was drawn to a career in residential property and happily spent 20 years working for one of the UK’s largest landlords having the privilege to work on a variety of exciting developments, challenging projects and a wide range of properties all over the country. Her experience was built across all areas of residential property investment from acquisitions, developments, refurbishments, lettings and management, through to heading up the group’s private treaty and auction sales department.

Yvette jointly set up Candy Homes with her business partner Chris in 2016 to fill a gap in the market for a high quality service to homeowners and investors alike, built on years of solid and relevant industry related experience. Yvette is a highly motivated property consultant and investor herself with a keen eye for problem-solving earnt through her extensive market knowledge and continued professional development. With an enviable power team of reliable and trustworthy industry professionals – agents, lawyers, mortgage brokers, builders, auction houses and surveyors, Yvette prides herself on making the buying and selling process quicker and easier for clients.

Yvette has no time for any interests as she is too busy picking up the slack for Chris and all his make-believe hobbies.

If she did have time, she’d enjoy spending time with family and friends, tennis, skiing, table-tennis, water-skiing, and her daily one-mile run every morning come rain or shine (not that impressive, but it all adds up to 27 marathons a year, or so she tells herself 😊)
