Meet April Hunt, Head of Training and Co-Owner of Waters Edge Realty. If you know April, you know that she loves God and loves people. She is a bright light to all those around her and has the most giving heart.
April had considered a career in real estate years prior after her own first time home buying experience. Due to the age of her children and season of life she was in at that time, she chose another direction. Her family settled in Fairhope in 2012 for her husband to take a position as lead pastor of Celebration Church. Everything in her life has always been about God's timing, and in 2017 she felt like Fairhope was the ideal community and the timing felt right to pursue this once forgotten dream.
She knew after the first year that all of the skills gained in her careers up to that point (hairdresser, teacher and pastor’s wife) had led her to the perfect career in Real Estate. She started in March and by the end of that first calendar year had hit nearly 5 million in volume and since then she has continued to grow her business year after year. In 2021, she had her strongest year with over 18 million in sales volume. Since 2017, April has averaged serving over 50 families per year and she has successfully added a showing partner and a full time transaction coordinator to her team.
April now says Fairhope will always be home because it is the place she and her husband, Johnny, have raised their family. She is a mother to three amazing children: Gavin, Lexie-Grace, and Gage. All of her children have been extremely involved in sports and she prides herself in maintaining a healthy family/work balance. She has managed a successful business while also making a point to never miss one of her kid's games.
With all of April’s knowledge and experience, we know that she will train and lead many agents to a productive real estate career. With her partner, Kendall Wahlert, at her side Waters Edge Realty will no doubt have great success. These two women with very different styles and personalities are the ultimate dynamic duo to lead this brokerage.
