My family has lived in Traverse City since 1999.. I enjoy running, reading, playing ice hockey, cooking and entertaining. Giving back to my community and being involved with the missions of my church are very important to me. I especially love spending time outdoors with my husband, Chris and two children, Owen and Sara. I am grateful to call Northern Michigan, one of the most beautiful places on earth, my home.
In the news... Sold over $10 Million dollars of Real Estate in 2016!
"We cannot recommend Ann highly enough. We recently sold our home in Traverse City to move downstate, and used Ann as our listing agent. It was a hectic, time-sensitive process, but hiring Ann was the best decision we made throughout the whole thing. She took all the stress out of selling our home. She met with us early on to learn what our objectives were; she listened to our concerns and preferences (quick sale and extended occupancy after closing); and she tailored her sales plan accordingly. We can say from personal experience that not every real estate agent is like that. We always felt like we could call/text Ann anytime with questions big or small. She was extremely helpful with the entire buying-and-selling process, not just the selling-side. If and when we decide to buy a place in the TC area, Ann will be our first call."
TJ & Mike A. Sellers, June 2017
“Ann is personable, kind and sweet woman who showed my family and I great respect and care when we were looking for my home. She is prompt and attentive when responding to me. Ann is understanding and posses a personality that is wonderful to work with. I would use Ann Porter again and will be recommending her to my friends and family.
Haylee Smith Buyer, May 2017
“I just want to tell you how much Steve and I appreciate all of your extremely hard work in ensuring that I was able to fulfill my dream of buying my childhood home. In spite of all of the difficulties that came up you never gave up or quit working with our lender to ensure a successful closing for us.”
Stephen & Susan S. Buyer, May 2017
"The task of finding the right realtor in today's market can be difficult. My family was directed toward Ann Porter and we are so glad that we found her. Ann has a clear understanding of the home market and what it takes to get things done. Her communication and professionalism are top notch. Because of Ann's work we had an full price offer on the table in the first 8 hours of our listing. Ann provided us with a professional photography team that helped make our house come to life on the internet. With Ann's detailed knowledge of the market in our area and extensive network within the industry, we made our dreams of a quick sale at a top market price come true."
Bennett & Andrea W. Seller, May 2017
"We were referred to Ann by the neighbor of the parcel we wanted to sell- Right from the start she was eager to explain the process of selling vacant land--how to list it--how to understand the offers--how to help a buyer to obtain financing to buy-- Being a five hour drive away--she showed us to how to sell it by E-mail and phone- which is what we did-within about ten days we had a buyer and just waiting for the closing- If you are looking for a better qualified agent --it will be really hard to find one.. Thanks to Ann Porter.”
