"Simply put Ann is the most professional person I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I wanted results after dealing with another company, who did not perform and Ann delivered. Our home had a solid offer in 10 days. She kept us informed every step of the way. Ann Porter exceeded all my expectations in every way.   A five star rating is not enough."
Robert V.  Seller,  January 2018
"Ann Porter was a fantastic realtor from the opening meeting to the closing.My wife and I researched local realtors based on sales and reviews and chose to meet a few, however, we knew we had found the right one within minutes of inviting Ann into our home. With her extensive knowledge of homes and sales in our area, she was able to ask for and sell our home for more than we expected.  She was great about explaining every step of the process in an efficient manner. I felt confident that she would handle every curveball that the process threw at us and we trusted her ability to work through them.  We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home.” 
Marshall & Sheila W.  Seller, January 2018
"Ann was nothing short of professional and an absolute delight to work with! Ann was diligent, insightful, pleasant, very quick to respond and highly knowledgeable. She guided me through the entire purchasing process from locating a home, making an offer, counter offer and final negotiations, making the entire experience not only smooth but enjoyable! Her rapport with the seller’s realtor was an integral part of closing on my home. I really could not have done it without her! I cannot thank Ann enough for the fabulous experience. If you are looking for a realtor in the Traverse City area, I highly recommend Ann Porter.”
Jenn N.  Buyer, November 2017
“Buying a home is a large decision. Buying a home remotely is even a larger undertaking. We purchased a home through Ann while living in a different state and she was a pleasure to work with!  She was patient, understanding, consultative and helped us every step of the way.”
Steve & Tracy D.  Buyer, October 2017
"Ann is wonderful! Our house sold in eleven days after being listed and Ann helped us determine the best offer out of those we received. She is professional, communicative, and frank in her assessments."
