About Me

My family has lived in Traverse City since 1999.  I enjoy hiking, kayaking, reading, playing ice hockey, cooking and entertaining.  Giving back to my community and being involved with the missions of my church as well as mission work in Haiti are very important to me.  I especially love spending time outdoors with my husband, Chris and my two adult children.  I am grateful to call Northern Michigan, one of the most beautiful places on earth, my home.

"Ann Porter has been an absolute pleasure to work with during our time in Traverse City. When we relocated to the area five years ago, we were so impressed with Ann's professionalism, expertise and responsiveness that she was a natural choice to work with again this year. Ann walked us through the selling and buying process and helped us navigate a very challenging market with peace of mind. Anyone working with Ann can be assured they are in the very best hands for their real estate journey. We are grateful!"

"Ann was very patient with us, even when we changed our minds on what we were looking for, then changed it back to our original request. She consistently identified new possibilities and helped guide us on our options for making bids on properties. She helped us win the bid on the ideal property! We could not have asked for better assistance, and we really appreciate her bubbly personality and confident outlook. "
