"In the last 6 years we have built a wonderful relationship with Ann.  In that time we have bought 3 homes and sold 2 of them.  Ann was always there for us whenever we needed it.  She is a busy mom and wife but always made time to respond to us.  You can tell she loves what she does, her heart and soul is in this.  Just her smile makes you feel so comfortable.  I would recommend Ann to anyone who is ready to list, buy and sell.  She has grown apart of our family and her honest opinions puts your mind at ease in making the right decision.  Her knowledge is above and beyond.  Thank you Ann for just being you and we are blessed to have you in our lives. "
Chris & Jenell G.  Seller, May 2019
"We chose Ann to help us sell our home recently because she knows our neighborhood well.  She is upbeat, intelligent and always responsive to our questions.  It was a pleasure to work with a professional that helped the whole sale process proceed seamlessly."
Andy & Becky S.  Seller, May 2019
"Ann was such a pleasure to work with - we couldn’t have asked for a better partner in buying our first home. With a limited budget, we were worried about not being prioritized by a realtor. Ann made that concern disappear immediately. Friendly, knowledgeable, and constantly on the ball, Ann was unphased by our budget constraints and dedicated herself to finding a home that worked for us. She handled tricky negotiations with aplomb and sincerely celebrated our victories. We trust her completely and recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor!"
Dave & Joy O.  Buyer, May 2019


"Ann Porter was the listing realtor for the sale of our condominium at The Beach in Traverse City. She was extremely helpful, efficient, knowledgeable, personable and professional. The sale was quick, smooth and we received the price we wanted for our condo.  We have referred her to many of the other owners at The Beach. We would not hesitate to use her services again."

Pat & Kim R. Seller, April 2019

"Sally and I want to thank you for the excellent way in which you handled the sale of our house. You heard us when we had questions and your responses were timely and much appreciated. We felt you had a good understanding of the current housing market that resulted in a quick sale. Thanks for your good work!"

John & Sally E. Seller, March 2019


"Ann is great! I know that she was giving me the best information to get the job done and get my house sold. She reviewed the questions that I had and talked them through with me so that I could make the best decision for me. I would most definitely recommend her to anyone as she is honest and trustworthy and will support you and your needs."
