We were first time home sellers with no idea how things would go or how long it would really take to sell our house. We had the best (and quickest) experience with Ann. With three young boys we needed the process to go quickly and smoothly. Ann did just that. She made sure we knew she was available for any questions or concerns during the “getting ready to list” phase. We had three offers and a signed acceptance within 48 hours of the listing going live. Ann is very competent and knowledgeable in knowing the market and what to list the house at. She’s extremely professional but very approachable on a personal level. I can say so much about Ann - she’s positive, easy to talk to, down to earth, knowledgeable, competent, realistic; she’s someone you want to walk through this process with. I felt like Ann was there every step of the way - during my cleaning the house, prepping for professional pictures and during the moving out process. She would always make sure to ask how things were going and made sure we knew she was just a phone call away if we had any questions or concerns.

Jonathan & Sarah M.  Seller, August 2018

"Ann assisted me in buying my first home.  Throughout the process, Ann took the time to educate me on what to look for in a house. At each showing, she was quick to check the date on the furnace, look at the seal on the windows and point out anything that may pose a potential challenge in the future.  Throughout the negotiation process, Ann was timely with responding to me, as well as getting responses from the sellers.  She had the patience of a saint when I would ask tons of questions or change my mind last minute.  She never once made me feel dumb or like I had wasted her time.  I cannot say enough good things about Ann Porter.  She is knowledgeable, kind, hardworking and honest. I have recommended Ann to friends and will continue to sing her praises to anyone looking to buy a house in Northern Michigan!"
Beth H.  Buyer, August 2018

"We have worked with Ann on two real estate transactions over the past several years. Ann really listens to her clients and work hard for them. She’s responsive, honest, and upbeat. If we ever need to work with a real estate agent in the future, Ann would definitely be our first choice. If you are looking for an agent, we highly recommend Ann!"
Al & Janette P.  Buyer, July 2018

"Ann is energetic, enthusiastic, and always has a positive outlook and attitude which makes her a pleasure to work with! We were searching for the right home for quite a while and Ann was with us every step of the way, answering all our questions, and providing all the information we needed to make our decisions. Her wealth of knowledge and experience were invaluable and made us feel confident and allowed us to make informed decisions. Shopping for and buying a house can be scary and overwhelming, but Ann is so great to work with that it makes the process easier and we felt more confident knowing she was on our side and had our best interest at heart. I wholeheartedly recommend Ann to my friends and family for all their real estate needs."
Michelle & Shane R.  Buyer, July 2018
"Our last trip to Traverse City sparked an interest in purchasing a condo in the complex we stayed in. We were lucky enough to come across Ann's business card and worked with her to purchase a condo! This transaction was completed in almost one month to the date we met with Ann.   We worked remotely and could not have been more pleased with Ann's prompt response to every email as well as phone calls!  She's truly one of the most professional agents we've worked with and would highly recommend her to service all of your real estate needs!"
Mike & Shirley M.  Buyer, July 2018
"People don’t sell or buy houses every day, so the chance to find a good real estate agent is a blessing.  We were lucky to have Ann Porter recommended to us.  Ann worked to help us sell a house successfully and then buy a house successfully.  Both the sale and the purchase were directly the result of Ann’s diligence and knowledge.  Whenever we had issues to discuss or questions to ask, or whenever we needed consultation, she made time for us and genuinely listened.  Her cheerfulness and optimism made difficulties disappear and smoothed the process of selling and searching.  For our money, she’s the best."
