Cushman & Wakefield Strengthens Yorkshire & North East Residential Development Team


London, 10 January 2023 – Cushman & Wakefield has expanded its land, development and planning team in Leeds with the appointment of Matt Brear as Associate Director.

Brear has spent the last 12 years at Dacres Commercial, where he was most recently a Director in the land and development team. At Dacres he specialised in the sale of residential development land, acting for a range of public and private sector clients including NHS trusts, private landowners and housebuilders.

At Cushman & Wakefield, Brear will advise public and private sector landowners, developers, investors and private individuals on a variety of residential development agency and consultancy opportunities.

“Matt has an impressive track record and has successfully led many complex transactions on behalf of clients over the years. His knowledge and expertise will certainly benefit our clients. He is a fantastic addition to our land, development and planning team, and I am delighted to welcome him.”

Matt Brear said:

“Cushman & Wakefield has an excellent reputation and I am delighted to join one of the world’s leading real estate firms. Residential development is an exciting sector to be part of and has a critical role to play in addressing the chronic undersupply of new homes in the UK. I look forward to being involved in the wide variety of client projects that lie ahead.”
