'IT'S NOT A JOB - IT'S A WAY OF LIFE'
  • Introduction

    Roger Darnton
    image cannot be displayed

    A native of the town and a member of a long established Guisborough family, with trading links in the town stretching back to the late 18th century, Roger was brought up and educated in the town. In 1984 Roger joined the reputable firm of Chartered Surveyors, Storey Sons and Parker. After training under very experienced senior partners, Roger was appointed manager of the firm's newly opened Guisborough office at the tender age of 19. In 1986 he also took on the additional responsibility of running a new branch office at Nunthorpe which he continued to run, alongside the Guisborough office, for the next two years. In 1988 he studied as an external student of the College of Estate Management and was successful in being awarded the College's Certificate in Residential Estate Agency. In the same year he became a fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents. Following the sale of Storey Sons and Parker to Black Horse Agencies, Roger managed their Guisborough branch until Black Horse Agencies' sell out to Bradford and Bingley. Shortly after this Roger left to found his own business and thus Roger Darnton Estate Agents was born, building on Rogers's long experience and many loyal client relationships. The new firm rapidly established itself as the leading independent estate agent in Guisborough and since then has remained an integral part of the town.

    In 2004 Roger was nominated as Guisborough's 'citizen of the year'. This was in recognition of the many years of public service that Roger has given to the town in various spheres, including the town's Parish Church, Rotary Club and most notably the Guisborough Museum, which he founded in 1989 and of which he acts as Chairman and Honorary Curator. Roger is the author of a number of books on the town's history. He is married to Jackie, has one son Tim, and lives at the family home in Guisborough where he was born. Both Jackie and Tim work alongside him in the business, making Roger Darnton Estate Agents very much a family firm.

    'Often referred to as 'Mr Guisborough', there aren't many houses in Guisborough that Roger hasn't been in over the years'

    Jackie Darnton
    Very much a local girl, Jackie trained as a Teacher at Northumberland College of Education and then spent a very successful career both in local Primary Schools and in Germany, where she taught for the H M Forces and thoroughly enjoyed the life of a single young professional woman living on the continent. Jackie returned to her native Teesside in the late 1980s, when she met Roger. After a whirlwind romance, Roger and Jackie were married in 1991, with the birth of Tim the following year. After taking a period out of her career during Tim's early life, Jackie returned to her teaching career where she worked at Highcliffe Primary School, Guisborough, forging lasting links with many local families, until her retirement in 2006. After a brief period concentrating on supporting her family during a difficult period, Jackie joined Roger in the business in 2009, becoming an integral part of the team and supporting Roger in his business. Having come from an education background, Jackie is a great asset to the team, bringing organisational and administration skills, essential for the smooth running of any business. Having been married to Roger for over twenty years, she has gained tremendous understanding of estate agency - and its many idiosyncrasies - and has witnessed the ups and downs of the Guisborough property market over the past two and a half decades. She is an outstanding organiser and compiler of data, all of which provide invaluable support to Roger and his sales team.

    Tim Darnton
    Being the ninth successive generation of the family to be born in Guisborough, Tim has known estate agency as boy and man. He carried out his first viewing at three weeks old with Roger who, at that time, was manager at Black Horse agencies. Having been brought up 'in the trade', Tim understands that office hours are no parameters to successful estate agency and he has learnt from his Dad that successful estate agency in a small community is a way of life - 'open all hours'. From an early age, Tim worked in the firm providing Saturday and holiday cover between his studies at York St John University and has since become a full time member of the staff. Tim has a very pleasant manner and a caring nature and he brings these and the knowledge that he has gained over the years to his valuable contribution to the life of Roger Darnton Estate Agents.

    Yvonne Hemmings
    Having worked in positions of responsibilities in a number of sales environments, Yvonne has worked for the firm since 2002 and has always been very much 'part of the family'. Having lived in the town for a number of years, Yvonne has tremendous knowledge of the town, its people and housing stock. She brings to her work enormous enthusiasm and a real appetite for both helping people and a genuine interest in property of all types. Qualities essential in successful estate agency. Yvonne has been told by clients that she is 'like a dog with a bone'. She loves working with the public and this shines through in the testimonial comments and gifts which are regularly received at the office following the successful completion of sales and handover of keys to very happy purchasers. Yvonne is very much a family person and devotes her personal time to family, which she loves, fitting in her many and varied holidays around her commitments to Roger Darnton Estate Agents.

    Jennifer Allen

    Jennifer acts as Rogers's personal assistant/secretary. After completing her education, Jennifer came to work for Roger Darnton Estate Agents as a typist/receptionist. She then moved on to work in a reputable local firm of auctioneers and valuers but then returned 'to the fold' in 2009.

    Jennifer has a delightful demeanour and very pleasant telephone manner, putting all clients - and Roger! - at their ease during the stresses and traumas of house sales and purchases. Jennifer is very supportive and protective of Roger and most notably is the guardian of his diary! Jennifer loves travel and music concerts, travelling many miles to support her favourite bands and she manages to balance her travels alongside her commitment and loyalty to her employer.
