"Very knowledgeable and helpful with the entire process.  Very responsive via email or cell phone, weekday or weekend.  Thanks for all the help, Ann!"

Michael M.  Buyer, August 2018

"Ann's expertise with both real estate knowledge and the area was the biggest reason the home sold so quickly. The complete process moved along in a very professional and quick manner. Ann herself is a very warm and friendly professional to work with. We would highly recommend Ann and her staff!!"
Dennis & Pam S.  Seller, August 2018

"I found Ann somewhat by accident, calling for information on one of her listings.  And so began a long search for the perfect affordable waterfront property.  Ann was always willing to show me more listings, month after month, seeing cabin after cabin after house.  She always kept my interests in mind, not showing bias to properties listed by other agencies.  I'll miss working with Ann,  now that we've found with her help, the best fit for our needs."
Barb B.  Seller, August 2018
"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

"Ann is a wonderful realtor who was able to answer all our questions and responded quickly. I highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell real estate."
David & Hana C.  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 Porter worked with our family for over a year looking for our home. She was wonderful about accommodating our work schedules to view homes on weekends and even holidays. She truly is a pleasure to work with. Ann is passionate about helping people and works hard to help them achieve their goals. There were several times where she went above and beyond the call of duty to help us in our search. Not only did we appreciate her positive attitude, we also appreciated that she is very knowledgeable in real-estate matters, as well as, savvy in negotiation. Her years of real-estate experience were evident at how smoothly our negotiation and closing process went. We had a last minute issue come up a few days before closing. Ann worked hard to straighten the problem out resulting in us saving money on closing costs. We had such a good experience working with Ann, and highly recommend her to friends and family."
Stephen & Christina S.  Buyer, July 2018
