Ann's on HGTV's Beach Hunters!!
“My husband and I have been working with Ann Porter for three years now as our buying and selling realtor. In the three years we have worked with Ann, she has shown patience, kindness and honesty. Ann is a fun person and has a very fun personality. My husband and I wanted to see a condo and Ann and her daughter were on a mission trip in Haiti. Ann did not want us to miss out on the opportunity, so she had her husband Chris show us the condo. Now that we have purchased a condo and our home is under contract to sell I will miss having weekly contact with Ann. I would recommend Ann Porter for any of your realty needs. I will definitely use her again, if we find that condo living is not for us.”
Curt & Bobbi Jo O. Seller & Buyer, October 2018
"I had the pleasure of working with Ann on buying my first home. I had NO idea what I was doing and she helped me along the way making sure everything was in order to get me into my new home in the time frame we expected. Anytime I needed a question answered or wanted to check on the status of things she responded in a prompt manner and stayed on top of everyone else for me also. Ann was very sincere always and genuinely cared about my happiness, sometimes making decisions that I would never have thought would work in my favor. I appreciate everything Ann, you made home buying a breeze!"
"Ann is a go getter!! We always felt like she truly working for us. She advertised our house heavily in all the right places. We felt like our house would be a tough sale. It’s 45 minuets south of traverse. Through her hard work, she sold our house in two months. Not to mention, for quite a bit more than the house was appraised for. Ann was a pleasure to work with. Ann is also looking quite intently on finding us a new home. We have no doubt that she will do just that. Thank you Ann for all you’re hard work."
"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!!"
"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."
