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 was a pleasure to work with when we purchased our property.  She communicated with us in a timely manner and answered any questions we had.“

Jim and Terri G. Buyers, April 2022

"We were looking for a home from six states away.  Ann was a great listener who patiently and pleasantly helped us search for a residence that would meet our needs.  She readily put time and energy into familiarizing us with the area, communicating with sellers, and even sending a video.  It was a very good experience."

Judy and Rod B. Buyers, April 2022

Gregory L.  Buyer, April 2022

"Ann Porter is very personable and helpful to us as we searched for a home. I would definitely recommend her."

Diane L.  Buyer, April 2022

"We were very blessed to have gotten a chance to work with Ann. We are moving to Traverse City from downstate and we were just not able to get to see all the homes in person. That wasn't a problem at all for Ann, she set up virtual tours and did a great job explaining and walking us through spaces until we found the perfect home for us. Would highly recommend Ann to anyone!"

Brian B.  Buyer, April 2022

"Ann was so amazing to work with. She was responsive, personable and patient in this home buying process with the crazy market we are in. She helped us find the perfect home for our family that we can’t wait to create memories in. Not only was she helpful in the home search, she also helped us navigate Traverse City since we will be new to the area. She gave us guidance in schools, parks, restaurants and shopping, too. We highly recommend Ann to anyone trying to find a home for their family!!"

Lisa B.  Buyer, April 2022

"My wife and I found Ann very honest, knowledgeable, and helpful when we were searching for our new home. I highly recommend her."
