Meet Anna Hunter
Anna joined the Living Edge team in November 2017.
Previously Anna managed a family owned pharmacy for 16 years which required management of teams, buying and scheduling and customer service. The buying role allowed Anna to explore her creative side and to meet customer stock demands.
Following this Anna was an owner operator of a café where she enjoyed customer interaction and again the design focus of setting up an interactive space for people to relax and unwind.
Having renovated her own properties gave Anna a true career direction and she joined the Living Edge team of stylists.
Anna demonstrates an eye for detail and strong creative vision for a space. Working with a portfolio of clients and leading with a strong customer focus has cemented Anna’s position in our team of top stylists.
Anna has staged a broad spectrum of houses for Living Edge and has a strong client base within the business.
We just wanted to thank you and Lucy for the really incredible job your have done with our home enhancement. Your talent and experience are very clear and have made all the difference. The house looks amazing! And we really appreciate the little touches - the way you have incorporated our artwork and books into the look make it feel very personal.
The rooms are now so photogenic that even the basic snaps that I have taken look beautiful so I am sure that the professional photographer will be able to get some great photos.
