Meet The Team

Darren Claxton Proprietor

Darren Claxton
Darren moved to Norfolk in 1991 when he was stationed at RAF Coltishall. After leaving the Airforce in 1997 Darren settled in Norwich as he had developed a deep affinity with the city.
Darren joined one of the country's largest corporate estate agents soon after and quickly established himself as one of the most accomplished agents in the region. After a successful spell running a local market town office Darren was promoted to the position of Branch Manager of the flagship Norwich office. After several years of unparalleled success Darren was promoted to the role of Area Manager, with responsibility for many branches throughout south Norfolk and North Suffolk.
Having worked through various different market conditions and with the widest range of properties Darren has an unrivalled amount of experience in dealing with all types of buyers and sellers. In partnership with Mark, he decided to form Claxtonbird residential as he believes that with his knowledge he can provide an outstanding moving experience to everyone and aims to deliver a level of customer service that will make you glad you chose Claxtonbird residential.
When he's not working Darren enjoys relaxing with his partner Julie at their home in Norwich as well as taking part in a wide range of sports.
