An estate agent has welcomed a new member to its team.

H&H Land & Estates has appointed Michaela Jupp as residential sales and lettings manager at its Grange branch.

Michaela will be responsible for advising clients on the sale and rental of their properties, managing present and future portfolios and overseeing the team at the branch.

She said: “I have worked for several corporate companies and have a wealth of experience in all aspects of estate agency, valuing caravans and modest homes up to multi-million-pound properties. I am now looking forward to working in such a beautiful place as Grange-over-Sands and beyond. I am eager to drive the business forward by offering a professional and friendly service."

Originally from West Yorkshire, Michaela then moved to Lancashire and has spent the last 20 years in the Lake District and Lancashire area.
