Notepad on Desk



I started working with Anna last year when I finally cracked and realised I needed some back-up. From the moment we first spoke I had a strong feeling she was the right person for the job and she has been brilliant from the start.

She works flexibly and 100% reliably on many aspects of supporting my professional life, including: updating my website and diary, booking podcast guests, setting up new systems and ways of working. She has a knack of knowing exactly what tone and approach is appropriate for each person she deals with - from the very famous to the very finickity, and everyone in between!

She is kind, efficient and an all round delight to have in my life. (My only hesitation in recommending her is that I don't want her to run out of time to help me!).

In short, Anna is a hero.

I would highly recommend the services of Apples & Pears. Anna has played a pivotal part in elevating the business of Logic Construction, and her continuous hard work and support ensures that we are able to maintain that standard.
Introducing new systems into the business has enabled us to provide the next level in customer service. In efficiently taking on many administration roles that were becoming a challenge to stay on top of, Anna has provided me with the ability to focus and grow the business in other areas.
Anna is always on hand to help, regardless of the task. Her remote working style means I continue to get the support required, without the financial burden of a permanent employee. I believe Anna’s rates and time keeping are market competitive.
Personally, I don’t know what I’d do without Anna now.

Simon Tickner - Logic Construction

I've used Anna's services several times and always found her so organised and efficient.

She has a lovely friendly attitude, and is always willing to help with any tasks - whether big or small.

I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs support in their business.

Sarnjit Ghatora - Dylan Finance

Anna at Apples & Pears is amazing at what she does; she really cares about doing a good job and would do anything for her clients.

As a business owner its difficult finding the time to do your administration, but having someone like Anna by your side really takes the stress away. I would highly recommend Anna to other business owners. 

Bradley Jones - Imperium Group Electrical Services

Having heard good feedback about Apples & Pears I decided to ask for some assistance.

My accountant had been chasing me for some financial information to prepare my self-assessment tax return. At a meeting with Anna, I handed her a full bag of receipts that I had accumulated and briefly explained what was required.

Within a couple of days, Anna presented back to me 3 pages of Excel that contained a clear and precise summary of my business expenses. This saved me so much time and headache; and at a cost I regard as very reasonable.

I will be utilising Anna’s services again in the future and would recommend her to anyone that needs regular or one-off business support.

Stephen Silver - Insolvency Consultant

Initially, we employed Anna to help us organise our family home. We were so impressed with her ability to identify what needed to be done (and then do it!) that we’ve since used her for numerous other services - from cutting out the organisational stress as a post-lockdown Party Organiser to mopping up essential admin as a Personal Assistant to our growing business.

Anna has a rare knack of being able to completely own a problem and solve it, leaving us free to focus on other matters.

Anna brings clarity, efficiency and calm to everything she does. We would recommend her to anyone in need of trustworthy, transparent and friendly help with any aspect of business and life. 

She’s indispensable!

Mark and Joanna Hanks - Oncostrata Ltd

Anna has been an amazing help to us.  We are currently living abroad, and she has been on hand to project manage some work we have been having done at our house.

She has been with us on this project every step of the way and has been exceptionally flexible and accommodated me every time I’ve needed anything doing (day or night and even weekends)!

She is super organised and her experience dealing with the building trade has been invaluable.

We could absolutely have not completed this project without her help and support - I would highly recommend her.

After a kitchen extension and refurbishment, I was tired of making the big decisions (kitchen, floor, worktops, appliances, taps, lighting etc.) I needed inspiration on the decor to pull it all together and I asked Anna for her help.

Anna came and observed the space and how we used it. She picked out some colour schemes that I never would have thought of, and inspired me to wallpaper a rather large blank wall.

It has totally transformed the space and has definitely done the job of tying it all together. We love it!

 I would definitely recommend Anna.

Miriam Wilson

My lovely friend Anna Potts is one of the most energetic, motivated and organised people I’ve ever met.

She has worked across multiple departments at M&S HQ for 22 years (where we first met many moons ago); but has finally decided to use her talent for project management and organising and turn it into her own business.

Her own projects at home are always beautiful and now she’s looking to help other people declutter and make space in their homes in order to help make space in their minds. I highly recommend, especially if you’re feeling overwhelmed at the moment, and that you think Anna can help you at work or home.

I am very proud of you Anna for taking the plunge in these uncertain times.

Sally Furlong

I cannot recommend Anna’s services enough; she provided fantastic options and ideas about how we could redecorate our property.

What I appreciated was that she really listened to my own ideas and style preferences and then put together a variety of visuals and links to products that suited.  She also made really constructive comments about room layouts which I hadn’t properly considered.

We used most of the ideas and colours suggested. A fabulous service.

Noelle O'Connor

Anna is the most organised person I know with a truly beautiful house and garden. If you’re looking for organisation, creativity and flair in your home or business - look no further!

Danae Leaman

I take great pleasure in recommending Anna Potts.
Anna worked with us for over a year on our home in Wanstead. During this time, she displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility and ambition. She is dedicated to her craft and brought an abundance of creativity and new ideas to our home.
Anna has a friendly attitude that she easily maintains while remaining solution focused. She has great communication, listening and organisational skills which kept us on budget. Her patience with us was amazing!
We loved working with Anna and we are happy to give her our wholehearted endorsement.

I can’t recommend Apples & Pears enough. 
Anna is an extremely dedicated and professional individual and will always go the extra mile for her clients
