We recently worked with Ann Porter to purchase a rental property in Traverse City. Ann showed us several viable options. Her knowledge of rental properties gave us the confidence to move forward with an offer. Ann kept us apprised of changes concerning the property we were interested in and gave us excellent recommendations for financing, home inspection and insurance. Her attention to detail, patience and knowledge of the market culminated in a successful closing. We would highly recommend Ann Porter both on a personal and professional level for any real estate needs in the Grand Traverse area.

"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!"
Sheila M.  Buyer, January 2019
"Intelligent. Thorough.  Knowledgeable. Communicator. Friendly. These traits make us glad we chose Ann Porter to be our realtor.  As former teachers, we give Ann an A+ for selling our house in one week."
Tom & Patti C.  Seller, December 2018

"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."
Dan & Jody V. Buyer, November 2018

"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!"
Tom M.  Buyer, November 2018
“Ann Porter has served as our realtor for two condo purchases and one sale over the past few years. In every case she has been unfailingly positive and cheerful, even when unforeseen issues arose. She addresses those issues and responds in a timely and professional manner. We have recommended her to others seeking a realtor, and will continue to do so enthusiastically.”
Allen & Nan H.  Seller, November 2018

"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."
Dick & Nancy G.  Seller, November 2018
"We were very happy with Ann’s work as our agent.  She listened to us and provided thoughtful advice.  She made herself available to help us see properties at our convenience, and she was very quick to respond to our questions.  She adjusted her schedule, sometimes on the spur of the moment, all for our benefit.  She has a thorough knowledge of the housing market in the Traverse City area.  She was our advocate and was very pleasant to work with throughout the process.  Ann was extremely helpful and we recommend her."
Steve & Kelly B.  Buyer, October 2018
