A Porter House Clients' Testimony

Teaming up with Cheaz & Jasmyen Porter of Porter House Realty was definitely a blessing. They exceeded our expectations and delivered with excellence. We had a contract on our home and needed to find a place to live in a short period of time. We started off with one approach and then changed midstream. The Porters accommodated us and the change midstream seamlessly. Their customer service was on point the entire time. When it came to finding homes to consider, they quickly learned our preferences and tastes and provided us with several options. We could not have researched and seen the properties that met our search criteria without them. Not only did they assist us with finding a home, but during the process, they gave us sound guidance and supported the decisions we made. On top of that, they educated us on the process and all of the players in the process. While we have sold and bought homes before, they provided us insight on some things that we did not know. They made us feel like we were important to them. They were professional and showed us the positive of every situation. We will definitely team up again with them and would recommend them to anyone. Our only regret is that we did not retain them to handle the sale of our current home in addition to helping us find a new home. They were just that good! Completely Satisfied! Damon and Karen McClure
I started looking to purchase my first home. Having traveled that road in 1996, my interaction with the realtor I had back then left a bad taste in my mouth, and ended in my deciding not to purchase but to stay in the renters’ market. A little gun shy after my initial attempt at home ownership, I moved forward in 2015, by choosing to go with Jasmyen and Cheaz Porter as my Realtor. The comparison in service and customer focus was undeniably night and day. Remax was a machine, only concerned with getting their bottom line met, in contrast, Jasmyen and Cheaz, being very astute in their sector, understood my needs and put them first. They listened, and supported “my” decisions. The first home I selected was a home some realtors did not want to show me, they said “no, it’s a heap”. However, when Jasmyen took me to see the house, which did require a great deal of renovation, she saw my vision and moved to make it happen. The owner of the home was not easy to work with, so I passed on the home. Wouldn’t you know it! Within days Jas and Cheaz had a long list of homes for me to see. They knew my taste, and understood my personality in relation to the type home that would make me feel at home and they remembered that I wanted to eventually use my first home as a rental property. The fourth house their staff member showed me was the one! Perfect, clean, great finishes and enough room for me to put my own stamp on it! Less than 3 months after finding my home, I was moving in! They also helped me find a great Mortgage banker who was able to advise me on the best route to go for financing as a Veteran. From selection, to appraisal, to inspections Title work and banking, the Porters are the power team to work with if you are looking for a starter home, a fixer upper, or your dream home. Great customer focus, awesome listening and directional skills. They never allowed me to become discouraged with anything that seemed to be alarming to me. I felt and feel valued, heard and supported. A year after my purchase, their team and the outside services that support their process have checked in on me and let me know that they are there to help both now and in my future purchases. This is unparalleled service. I am a big customer service person. The Porters are a great product, but their sensitivity to customer needs and wants, their consummate drive to give clients the best home and best experience in home buying is unmatched. Their faith and integrity guides them in all they do. They are the complete package in helping you to find what you want in a home, and understanding the larger implications of homeownership both financially, economically and socially. I love my home, my neighbors, my neighborhood and I love Cheaz and Jasmyen Porter!!! Thank God for such an awesome connection. Dallah Herman
Thank you Porter House International Realty Group for all your help. Thank you for your professionalism. Thank you for being there when I needed somebody most. You are EXACTLY what we need in this world today people that we can trust. The team that you have is Terrific. Ms. Tracey was there every time I called, she had a great spirit on her. She always brightened my day when I spoke to her. She was right on point with all the information that I needed, answered every question, and she always called me right back. That meant a lot to me. God bless Porter House International Realty Group Sincerely! Edward bonds
For the past three (3) years or so my wife and I had been discussing purchasing a new home. Although the reasons varied as to why we both agreed that how we purchased it and with “whom” would be as big of a decision as location and price range. My wife was all in on the search for the “Perfect” home and enrolled in a few mailers that would send her houses for sale. I had one rule, “I am only going to visit and see houses that fit all of our criteria and that she was truly interested in purchasing. I did not want to do weekly treks across the state and compare qualities of different homes. She, on the other hand, would leave the office to do a drive-by and then tell me about her ventures later. I saw that this was going to wear us down and she was growing weary in her search and the “Perfect” house did not present itself. I nudged my wife into meeting my good friend Cheaz Porter and his wife Jasmyen of Porter House International Realty at an event and invoked the conversation with her and them that we were in the market for a new home. My wife said that she would not bother Jasmyen every time she drove to see a house but would call her when her interest was high. Fast forward to June, 2017 my wife found a home in Upper Marlboro, MD that she was very excited about. So excited that I rode there with her and liked it myself. I texted Cheaz from the driveway of the house and he scheduled a visit the next day. Porter House International met us at the home only to find out that the owners had contacted Jasmyen previously to be the listing agent for the home. I said to myself, this is a perfect match because the Porter House International is everywhere. Jasmyen gave us a good offering price with a competitive contingency scale. A week later we found out that the owners went with another offer. On July 16, 2017 we all were attending a family cookout when Jasmyen said she had the perfect home for us and that she was the listing agent. In fact the owners put the house on the market on Friday July 14, 2017. She pulled up pictures of the home on her phone, handed it to me and walked away. My mouth dropped!!!! I handed the phone to my wife and her eye popped out her head. We arranged to see the house on Monday 7/17/17 at 10:00 am and at approximately high noon we made the decision on the driveway of the house to put a contract on it. By 4:30 pm that same day (7/17/17) the contract was ratified!!!! We closed on the house on August 25, 2017. This was the smoothest, no stress, and effortless process ever with Porter House International Realty Group. Jasmyen and Cheaz listened to every detail that we were looking for in a new home and they exceeded expectations and delivered as advertised. If we are ecstatic about this experience how you think the previous owners feel about having their home listed by Porter House International Realty Group, and sold in less than three (3) days. If you are looking for attention to detail, absolute knowledge of the Real Estate Market coupled with a stress-free and effortless experience – Look no further than Porter House International Realty Group.

Real Estate News!!!

Latest Realty News from NAR

Infrastructure Improvement Means Real Estate Activity

When the Trump administration released its $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan last month, it set in motion a multi-year process that could eventually lead to considerable investment in communities. Of course, Congress must pass legislation to make much of it happen. Although there are some parts that the administration can do on its own, a lot of the plan will require both authorizing and funding legislation, so how close we get to that $1.5 trillion goal is dependent on what lawmakers can agree on in the next year or two.

Regardless, with the country’s roads, bridges, waterways, dams, and other public projects aging, some projects will be getting funds in the years ahead whether or not the plan is all or partly enacted. The question for you is, how will you get involved? Will you get involved upfront, when projects are in the planning stages, or will you get involved after projects get going? Often, bridge replacement means land transactions, because it’s not unusual for a replacement bridge to be built alongside the existing bridge. That means government might have to acquire or condemn nearby property. Or if a road is widened—will that involve acquisition or condemnation of land?

Property values tend to go up after infrastructure improvements are made. In northern Virginia, expansion of the metropolitan subway system had a tremendous impact on property values along the new tracks. Huge condo, apartment, retail, office, and mixed-use projects followed. It triggered a real estate boom.

The administration’s infrastructure plan is featured in the latest Voice for Real Estate news video from NAR. Access that segment now.

The video also looks at why NAR supports the banking reform bill that passed the Senate a couple of weeks ago, why passage of long-term reform of federal flood insurance is just as much about improving communities as it is about continuation of insurance policies, and why Congress needs to make mortgage debt forgiveness relief a permanent part of the tax code. Cyber crime and association health plans are covered, too.

Audio: Dealing with Cyberthreats

Steve Spano, president and chief operating officer of the Center for Internet Security, recently visited NAR’s Washington offices to discuss techniques real estate professionals can employ to stay safe online. Listen to his comments below.

Yes, Interest on Home Equity Loans is Still Deductible

There’s been confusion since the big tax law was enacted over the deductibility of interest on home equity loans. NAR has been saying that the interest is still deductible for the part of the loan that’s used for home repairs, renovations, and additions. And that’s the correct interpretation, according to the IRS. The agency confirmed that in a memo about a week and a half ago.

VRE 82 image

The part of the loan that’s used on the house to fix something or improve it remains deductible under the new tax law. Loan proceeds that are used for personal living expenses or anything not related to improving the home are not deductible.

The clarification is looked at in the latest Voice for Real Estate news video from NAR.

The video also looks at an important vote in the House on so-called drive-by lawsuits. These are lawsuits filed by people who are using accessibility requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act to extract fees from small property owners. People are sending letters to property owners alleging they have an ADA violation and threatening a lawsuit unless the owner reaches a settlement with them. The person sending the letter typically doesn’t even say what the alleged violation is. The only way the owner can find out is by going to court. Most owners end up settling as the cheaper alternative and if there was ever any violation the owner never finds out what it is.

The House passed a bill requiring people who send these letters to identify what the alleged violation is and to give owners a chance to correct the problem before taking them to court. It’s a solution that addresses a clear abuse of an important law and NAR supported its passage. The bill still has to be taken up in the Senate.

Other topics in the video include NAR’s Commitment to Excellence initiative, which will roll out later this year, to give NAR members a chance to voluntarily assess how well they perform on key aspects of their business, including technology, the Code of Ethics, and the forms and contracts they use.

The video also gives an update on home sales—they’re off to a slow start this year, mainly because of inventory shortages in many markets, especially among lower-cost starter homes—and what’s happening in commercial real estate. Briefly, transaction volume on small cap properties is doing okay but volume on large cap properties is slowing down.
