Porter was a dream to work with. She guided me carefully through the process of making an offer, negotiating with the sellers, having the property inspected, preparing my board package, and all the millions of other details involved in buying a home. She kept me informed and kept my worries to a minimum. She was responsive, thoughtful, and organized, and she supported me and my interests all the way along! - K.F. buyerBuying your first apartment is a daunting task! We had met with a bunch of real estate agents from various companies, but when we met with Porter from Harkov Lewis Team we knew we had found the perfect match. Porter immediately understood what we were looking for and didn't waste our time on apartments that didn't fit what we were looking for. She made us feel comfortable, was incredibly knowledgeable and just wonderful to talk to. I am certain that we wouldn't have found the apartment of our dreams if it wasn't for Porter. We liked Porter so much we invited her to our house warming party! - N.D. buyerPorter was fantastic to work with in the sale of my apartment. She was very attentive to me and responsive whenever I needed her. Porter is very personable and lovely to work with. She also did a fantastic job staging the entire apartment to show and sell. - H.L sellerPorter managed to rent my place at asking price despite the worst January weather in years. I was not in town, so she handled everything-even coming over to the apartment in her spare time to help box books and move some art work. Her upbeat attitude, sense of humor, encyclopedic knowledge of the market, and ability to work with literally anybody makes her the perfect real estate agent. Plus, she's incredibly cool to boot-the kind of person you'd love to have a cocktail with at the end of the day. I will definitely be using her again, and I can't recommend her highly enough. - K.F.
