"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."
Pete & Nancy C. Seller & Buyer, July 2018
"If you are looking for both a professional realtor and someone who is easy going with a great personality- look no further than Ann Porter!  She had a challenge on her hands with our lot but she never gave up.  She continued to find creative ways to market the property until she got it sold.  We couldn’t be happier with our experience with Ann!"
Robin F.  Buyer, June 2018
"Ann is the best! I established a short timeline to relocate to a different part of the state. Ann came over to my house and was able to help me decide on what work needed to be done in order to list and sell the house quickly. Her knowledge of the area allowed me to list my house at an amount much higher than I even hoped for and I accepted an offer accepted in two days from listing! The photos of the home and listing looked great!"
Aric R.  Seller, June 2018
"We cannot say enough good things about our realtor, Ann Porter. She was always quick to reply to all of our questions and inquiries. We felt that she was easily accessible, even though we were searching for a home while we lived 2.5 hours outside of Traverse City. I'm sure we gave Ann a challenge as we were trying to set up viewings on days we could drive into town, as well as try to answer questions for us on several homes we saw. Ann always maintained such a polite, professional, and positive composure. She consistently set up home viewings in a convenient and timely manner for us. We highly recommend Ann and were very pleased with our first family home she helped us find."
Shane & Monica R.  Buyer, June 2018
