Rollits adds property specialist to residential team

A property professional who made the switch from an estate agents to a legal career has now completed her move to Rollits LLP.

Amber Deas with Neil Franklin, Head of Property at Rollits.

Amber Deas joins the firm’s residential property team working across the offices in York and Hull.

Amber lives in Stillington near York and attended Easingwold Secondary School before starting out in personnel and training and then moving into property as a sales progressor with Hunters Estate Agents in 2019.
