Consultancy Knight Frank has bolstered its seniors housing team by adding three senior surveyors.

Chris Barnes, who joins from Cushman & Wakefield, and Katarina Szinekova, who has been recruited from CBRE, will both focus on advisory instructions – providing valuations and consultancy advice that will help towards transactional work.

Ty Turner, who has joined from Savills, will work with the wider team on Knight Frank’s capital markets instructions, including acquisitions, land agency and funding transactions.

Tom Scaife, head of seniors housing at Knight Frank, said: ‘We have seen market activity significantly increase in recent months, and our latest research suggests 2021 will be a record year for investment.

‘Adding three new senior surveyors to our team will help meet demand, and allows us to continue to provide a market-leading offering to our clients.’
