Curtis Yates is one of the original team members at Alliance Tax Advisors. Involved with commercial real estate for most of his life, his career has encompassed property ownership, appraisal, consulting, and brokerage throughout the state of Texas.
Curtis began his career in 1984 as a commercial real estate appraiser for a local property consulting agency in Fort Worth. After obtaining his MAI designation from the Appraisal Institute a few years later, he went on to eventually take over ownership of the local agency. In 1998, drawing on his experience in appraisal, Curtis became a property tax consultant for a large multinational firm, where he worked for several years before moving to ATA.
In addition to national and state certifications as a commercial appraiser, Curtis is a licensed commercial real estate broker with experience in retail leasing and brokerage.
