"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


“This was the second time we called on Ann to help us make a purchase in the Traverse City area. As always Ann was engaged from the beginning in our effort to find the right property. Her expertise was very helpful during the negotiation process. She was knowledgable of current market conditions and guided us through to very fair pricing on the new condo. We were also impressed with her working relationship with the other real estate agents involved. I there is another property in our future we will definitely be calling Ann again."

Steve & Kimberly G.  Buyer, May 2018


Ann is very knowledgeable and personable. We've worked with her on two purchases and would highly recommend her! She has made our experiences in the real estate world easy and fun!

Scott & Chris T.  Buyer, May 2018


Ann Porter was my agent in purchasing a new condo and in selling my old condo. She made the whole process so positive, with her professionalism; her integrity; honesty and knowledge of the market. I never imagined that it would all go so smoothly and quickly.  I will be forever grateful to her "get it done" attitude and her great support through it all. WOW!


Sherry H.  Buyer, March 2018


I'm a out of state buyer who had never seen the property. Ann handled everything from start to finish. She negotiated a price that was 25% lower than the asking price. You definitely want Ann on your side if you are buying or selling Northern Michigan Property.
