Ann's on HGTV's Beach Hunters!!
"Ann was of great assistance in both finding us a home and negotiating a sales price. Her expertise saved us a significant amount of money and time!"
"We've bought 5 homes and sold 4 in two states over the past 22 years, so we've had a little experience. Although the home buying experience is often inherently stressful (this time was no exception), a good realtor can help minimize the stress. Ann Porter did just that by her responsiveness. She quickly arranged showings for us and was always available to supply information and answer questions. We never felt pressured and appreciated her willingness to assist us as long as it took to find what we wanted. She has a great mixture of professionalism with a down to earth attitude."
"I was trying to buy adjoining land to my acreage from a "For Sale by Owner" seller to prevent more development where my family and friends hunt and fish. It did not take long for me to figure out that I needed a professional to represent me to look out for my best interests and keep me within budget. From tips I received, I looked up Ann and once I completed my research, I knew she was the realtor I needed on my side. The negotiations for buying this property were complex and challenging, but with her patience and perseverance she negotiated a successful sale that I considered a very fair price for me. If I would have tried to go alone, I would have spent thousands more or worse not have been able to buy this property. If I do anything with real estate I will use Ann's services again without question. I highly recommend Ann's services for any real estate transaction, she is a great communicator and dedicated professional who will work very hard representing your best interests. I could not be more happy having the peace of mind owning the adjoining land, I am grateful to Ann for making this sale possible!"
"Any time buying or selling a property is stressful, especially for senior citizens. We were smart to engage Ann in the selling of our property as she had answers almost before we could ask our questions. Ann made selling our property easy. If we have other property to sell in the future, we will call Ann. She is knowledgeable, professional and pleasant to work with."
