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. buyer
Buying 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. buyer
Porter 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 seller
Porter 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. Landlord
Porter was an extraordinary partner in selling our condo. She went above and beyond in every possible way and was focused, proactive, and totally professional. We were always certain that she had our best interests at heart and was committed to getting us the best deal possible. She was always available to speak with us and gave excellent advice. When there was some unexpected back-and-forth with the buyer while dealing with the contract, she was totally on top of things and made sure it all went smoothly and quickly. More exceptionally, when we were having a very difficult experience with another real estate transaction, which she was not involved in because it was not in a location where she works, she was totally there for us and was an incredible support.
She is amazing. She led the process with my best interest in mind, kept me informed and educated through it plus made it painless for me. I can't wait to have another place to sell just so I can work with her! You'll be in amazing hands. – M.L. seller
