Anyone who has shopped for a home before knows that finding the perfect house is not an easy task. Sometimes the coolest homes just aren’t presented in the best possible fashion. There are many times when a home has been neglected, poorly decorated or so dirty that you can hardly imagine what it could look like. A realtor with an eye for design is especially important when it comes to giving you inspiration as to what possibilities a home may have. Not only is the experience of shopping for a home a lot more fun when you have a designer helping you see the potential…it can also save you money. “Our market is so popular that it is often necessary to do your own renovations in order to get the look you want at a greater value” Anna says. “When looking at homes make sure you are putting the things that are most difficult to change; such as location, lot size and even ceiling height, at the top of your priority list and work down toward the things that are easiest to change like paint color and lighting.”
Anna Lassiter Gruenloh, currently working as a real estate agent with the Cassina Group, has been merging design with real estate for years now in the Holy City. Her track record includes being a featured designer in Charleston Fashion Week, a number of runway shows with Charleston After Dark, modeling for various publications and sitting on the Board of Directors for The Fashion Group International in Charleston. It’s no surprise her home is decorated to the nines and she’s naturally technologically savvy and keeps followers up-to-date on the latest trends on her @NestCharleston instagram account.
It doesn’t matter if you are designing on a budget or splurging on decor, Anna will inspire you to see ‘what could be’ as opposed to what you might not see at the moment. She’ll leave a great impression on you with her super sweet personality, her knowledge of the local markets and her two adorable twins Liam and Dahlia attached to her hips…if you’re lucky enough to meet them.
