Ann is the founder of the House Doctor Network and is considered a guru in her field having introduced the concept of home staging to the UK over 15 years ago via the Channel 5 TV programme House Doctor which, after eight series, was followed by other programmes such as A-Z of Design, House Doctor: Inside and Out, etc. Ann has also written many articles for UK interior magazines such as House Beautiful aswell as six books based on the various TV shows aswell as one, The Property Book, that contains solutions for buying and selling property.
The impact Ann has had on the property market is visible. Many of the more recent TV shows such as Phil Spencer Secret Agent and Sarah Beeny's Selling Houses are based on the original House Doctor premise of making homeowners aware how their property appears to potential buyers and what they need to do to improve their chances of getting the house sold.
Due somewhat to Ann's influence many homeowners and investors are preparing their properties before they are placed on the market. Ann's office receives many requests from property owners looking for assistance with presenting their properties for both the sale and rental market. The creation of The House Doctor Network enabled Ann to meet this demand by training certified professionals who run their own businesses throughout the UK and further afield. The Team offers services ranging from advice consultancy all the way to complete project management and makeovers.
Ann now spends most of her time split between her main home in San Francisco and her holiday home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She enjoys the company of her two grown daughters, her grandchildren and her partner Timothy.
