Trudi Sedman
Sales Consultant / Colour Consultant

Not long after graduating from high school, Trudi began working with Spotlight. She worked with Spotlight for 18 years and managed three different departments. She also worked as a Soft Furniture Consultant while working at Spotlight during the last seven years of her career there. Trudi thrived in the role of a Soft Furniture Consultant, often finding herself amongst the top 10 consultants for highest monthly sales Nationwide.

This is where her story with Anchor Homes begins. Trudi met our Managing Director and Sales team leader, Lester, as Spotlight’s Soft Furnishing Consultant. It wasn’t too long after that Lester and Trudi sat down together and discussed the idea of selling houses instead of blinds!

Always up for a challenge, Anchor Homes put Trudi through an Interior design course and here she is, eight years later loving her job as a color & project consultant.
When building with Anchor Homes, you and Trudi will spend much time together, bringing your ideas to life with color, claddings, tiles, carpets, kitchen design… all the fun stuff! Trudi always says ‘I may be a little bias, but I think I have the best job at Anchor Homes’

Outside of business, Trudi is a loving mum, “taxi, bank, mind reader and personal assistant” of 2 teen/adult boys, and she enjoys getting the tool belt on and doing home improvement projects.
