Tammy helped us every step...
Ryan and Aubrey Otero
“Tammy has helped us buy 3 homes... and sell 2! She has been a godsend on all accounts.
She put my husband and I in our 1st starter home and we made great equity back in just a little over 2 years! She then helped us invest that equity back into a new home (literally new, we built our 1st home). Then we sold a few years later, and got even more equity to invest into our now home - which we were also able to build. She walked us through each of these processes and even drove across the metroplex for our builder meetings and walkthroughs! She educated us, she is patient, kind and has your best interest at heart! We will use her again when we sell our current home! - Aubrey Otero”

Couldn't have done it without Tammy!

We couldn't have done it without you! You've helped buy/sell houses for our entire family, so technically that makes you our family, too! On to our next chapter...”

Honesty, integrity and trust
“Marian is the best! I got my dream house thanks to her help!”
Got my dream house
“Tammy literally did the impossible. She worked me into her schedule (with little to no notice) and was one of the nicest people I have met. In what was record time, I had signed a lease and received the keys to the townhouse my son and I will be living in. None of this would have happened if it weren’t for Tammy. I can’t recommend her enough to anyone looking to purchase or rent a home. I am so grateful and can’t tell you what the work she did means for my son and me.”
Tammy did the impossible
“Buying a home with Tammy was a pleasure. She handled it with grace and dignity. She genuinely cared about my needs and was very patient. She knows her business. I would recommend her to my family and friends.”
Handled with grace and dignity
“Working with Marian made the home-buying process easy and enjoyable. She is extremely responsive and listened carefully to us throughout the process. We never had to wait to hear back from her—she always made herself available to help. She pays very close attention to details and gave us plenty of notice about key deadlines ahead. Plus, as a bonus, her sense of humor and kindness helped keep the experience as stress-free as possible.”
Ben and Ashley Kelly

Exactly what we were looking for
1st-Time homebuyer from California
“As a first-time homebuyer who was relocating from California, I was very lucky to have Marian Porter as my real estate agent. Marian has a tremendous market and builder knowledge of the Dallas area.
Marian is a rare find- she truly cares about her clients and it feels more like a friendship. She ensured I found the right area to fit my needs, a good builder and was with me every step of the process explaining what to expect.”
...tremendous market knowledge
With Tammy Since 2002
“I was Tammy’s 1st customer in 2002, buying your 1st home can be scary and it all went great! She also sold that home for us in 2006. She sold it in less than 2 weeks for our asking price. Everything went smoothly both times. I’m a repeat customer and have referred several others her way. She’s Great!!”………. Liz Orton”
Marian knows new and pre-owned homes
“Marian knows! New home or preowned, she knows what’s available for her clients. She keeps up with the rapidly changing North Texas market. She can find exactly what you are looking for, she is patient and kind. Her smile and sense of humor are appreciated in what can be a life-changing event.”
Kathi Miller, Highland Homes
Tammy made the process smooth
““I was trying to sell the house my ex-husband and I had bought together, and buy one on my own at the same time. I was absolutely terrified! Tammy made the whole process so smooth and easy for me. She was available whenever I needed her and was always patient and ready to answer my questions. She knew what she was doing and there were no hold-ups because she forgot to do something or had to check with anyone else. She was able to give me sound advice and help me make major decisions. She made the experience enjoyable. I will be using her in the spring of next year and look forward to working with her again!!! Thank you, Tammy, for your dedication and hard work.” ……… Llewelyn Hamilton”
Long Distance Move
“Marian exceeded our expectations of a Realtor. She worked with us long distance over a period of many months prior to our relocation to the Dallas area. She knew what we wanted and took the time to preview homes prior to our visits. In the end, she helped us find the perfect home. We still feel that we can call on her as a resource and friend.

Tammy Sold It!
“Tammy sold my house in 3 days, and for the price, I was wanting! I have referred her to others, and I would use her again!, She made it simple, easy, and painless. The whole process went smooth””
California to Dallas
““We met Marian Porter initially over the phone in the summer of 2017 when we had decided to move to the Dallas area of Texas from California. We found Marian through an internet search for that area and we were not disappointed after we spoke with her on the phone about our home requirements. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area in terms of the cities and towns that would most suit our needs and desires. She listened tentatively to what our requirements were in terms of the home that we would be looking for.
We scheduled a trip to come to Texas in early September. We spent 4 days with Marian and she was very organized and had lots of model homes in different communities for us to look at in our price range. She was extremely professional in her job in that she had meetings with builders scheduled in various communities for us to see lots of model homes. At the end of that week, Marian was successful in finding us our home that we love and are so happy to be in. Marian made the task of house hunting a lot of fun and as the result of our meeting with Marian, we made our first friend here in Texas. I would recommend Marian if you are serious about finding your dream home here in the Dallas area of Texas. I would highly recommend Marian as the best realtor for any of my friends who are looking to settle in the Dallas area. She is the right individual for the Dallas area real estate market.””
Patricia and Oscar Gotelli
Marina's a lifesaver for us!
“We trusted Marian so much we bought a house without seeing it in person! It is PERFECT! She also was invaluable when dealing with the bank and is a master at working with other agents. She’s been a lifesaver for us!”
Tad and Kristin Lichtenauer
Tammy was looking out for me!
“Tammy made the home buying process so enjoyable! As a first-time buyer, I had a lot of questions and Tammy was always available to answer them. She worked hard to keep me informed and that made me feel very confident in the purchasing process. I felt Tammy was really looking out for me during the whole process. She treated me like a friend, not a customer.”
Service second to none!
“Marian is a real estate expert and one of the best in the business.
I’d worked with Marian for years before my wife and I decided to purchase our new home, and she was an integral part of getting our deal closed.
I trust my referral sources with Marian because her service levels are second to none. She is consistent in her follow-ups, in communicating the expectations through the process, and is always quick to help me for any pointers or industry updates, even if it’s not related to a transaction we’re working on together.
You’re in great hands with Marian!
