Helped me buy and sell homes
In the beginning she was good, talked a lot, but good, but as soon as she got a contract to sell our home things started going south and never really stopped. We found our new house, not her and she tries pushing houses she has listed instead of what you really want. She didn't want to show us the house we had found unless we road by it first (or any house for that matter). After we wrote a contract for our new house she got upset with us because we tried telling her we needed better communication than doing every contact by email or text because things could get misunderstood. She tried making it about her and whether we liked her or not. Well I'm sorry buying a house is not something we do everyday and worrying about her personal feelings weren't or shouldn't have been the focus. Then when we found out that we would need to ask for an amendment to the close date she never contacted us back. After that we had had enough and contacted the broker of the office she works with and he finished out our contract, Never to hear from her again. Bottom line we would never recommend her!!! Less ...

This is my first time buying a home and Kendra Porter has been an awesome realtor which made my buying experience a great one! I recommend her for any of your needs when looking for a home. She is very knowledgeable and polite. She is responsive and listens to what you are looking for and finds what you need and want in a home. 5 stars all around!

Kendra is a hard worker she got me the house that my husband and I have been wanting. She did everything in her power to get the house and we are beyond excited about it. Can't wait for the house to be closed. Thank you again Kendra. We appreciate everything you have done.

I was looking on zillow for investment properties. I contacted Kendra she was so helpful she answered all my questions without hesitation. Kendra offered to find me more properties to look at on my visit and I'm really looking forward to working with her in the near future.

I was looking to buy my first house and, through Zillow, found a list of reputable realtors. Kendra's reviews stuck out for me as someone who was incredibly informative, helpful, and willing to negotiate so that I got a fair deal. Kendra has lived up to all expectations and has been instrumental in helping me find the first home of my dreams. During the walkthrough she was a wealth of knowledge and answered all my questions honestly and fairly. Kendra worked as the agent for the seller as well and was upfront about it. She made sure that both parties were happy with the negotiations. I would highly recommend Kendra to anyone buying a home in the area. Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
We are out of town sellers. We expected a Realtor with higher standards. Thatwould protect your interest through the entire transaction with the integrity,honor,professionalism, and expertise that are set by the Realtors Code of Ethics. According to the Code of Ethics, Kendra was to work us the Seller, to reach a smooth and problem-free experience. 1.Slow, returning calls and emails. 2.We had to ask several times to get an answers. 3.She called and gave several "of so called verbal contracts" that never came through. 4. The last verbal contract was a cash buyer? She even told us she had a written a contract. We never saw or received a the contract. 5. The property almost sold. At that time the property should have been listed as pending while in negotiations. The house never sold. 7. SHE HAD the house ON HER SOLD LISTINGS. 8.We sent a request to Zillow to remove it from her sold list.They were excellent in the processes. 5. Kendra would remind us that she was leaving her kids to "HELP" us sale the house. Or that she gave up her weekend vacation with her Kids and husband to show the property. A Realtor makes her money from commissions. There is no need to tell the seller, what she gave up to do her job. This is our opinion of Kendra Reed Porter. Less ... More
Response fromKendra Reed Porter
I'm sorry you have to read this and would be concerning if true. This person is not a client and the true client which is a family member called me crying after I sent her a copy of this. It is unfortunate when family members fight and cannot be loving towards one another. Anyone who reads and is wanting validation I am happy to have the client call you and share their experience with me which is the exact opposite of this. As you can read on other reviews it is not something that follows the pattern of the rest. I welcome any constructive criticism but not abusive forceful language demanding me to only deal with her insteadof actual owners. We should be blessed everyday and negative spiteful hurtful comments, especially those that are untrue and involve ones children and family should be avoided. Buyers and buyers agents will see her post and likely turn away from the active 901 Commander Dr Roanoke VA listing not wanting to be treated in a similar manner. Less ... More

Kendra was very positive and energetic. However, she spent a lot of our time telling us what she would do with the property and home if she were the seller's agent. We are buyers, not sellers. Her continuous talking about what she liked and/or didn't like was bothersome. We won't ask her to be our agent in the future.
Response fromKendra Reed Porter
Thank you for review. I will keep this in mind and any client who would like me to stay at the front door while they tour I am happy to do so. Usually my clients appreciate any assistance. I did not represent the seller but I tried to point out certain items that has been left undone by seller which could have been to our behalf when negotiating price. Usually I hear that agents can be cold and uncaring and that is not me. I will go to bat for my client 100% and I'm sure that will not change. I try to always be accessible and that particular day I left my two children to show this home so please keep that in mind when any agent spends time with a client. If I had limited the tour to a 10 minute showing I could have been back to my family sooner but I was trying to do my best to help. Thanks though for feedback and will keep that in mind. We seemed to not be the best fit but I wish the luck with the next one and all the best. Less ... More

Kendra Porter was verry nice and professional! She worked extremely hard to find us exactly what we wanted and in the small price range we had for a home. It wasn't easy for us but she never gave up! I would definitely recommend Kendra to anyone looking to purchase a home. We couldn't be happier!!

I consider myself to be truly blessed in having Kendra as my real estate agent. I had been through a divorce and hadn't felt very hopeful while browsing on my own at properties available in the Roanoke Valley. Somehow something I had fed my name into online brought her to me. From that point on...........I had real hope which turned into me being a homeowner again! On my own this time as a single woman and not feeling very lucky and then Kendra made my dream a reality! I have known her a few months now but she feels more like a friend than merely my agent. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home or/and buy a home. My friend is selling his home and already enlisting her as HIS agent. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
When my husband and I were looking for our first home we contacted Kendra Porter. She was extremely responsive to us and listened to what we were looking for in a home. We already had a few in mind we wanted to see in the Botetourt area, but Kendra brought many more to the table for us to consider. She was very patient with us while we weighed our options and did not mind driving all over the county on Sunday afternoons showing us houses. The one we decided on ended up being a foreclosure and Kendra informed us that negotiations might be tough when dealing with a bank instead of a home owner. However, Kendra proved to be a top notch negotiator and helped us get thousands knocked off the listing price and bargained with the bank to get them to pay ALL closing costs! The home was "sold as is" so a home inspection was not required but was recommended for our benefit. Our house came back with a high amount of Radon gas and we were told we would need to get a radon mitigation system which can be quite pricy. Kendra came through again and got the bank to give us a $1500 credit at closing to put towards the system!! We are so pleased with her customer service and hard work. It has felt like we have been working with a friend through this whole journey because she has truly kept our best interest at heart the whole time. Less ... More

I needed to relocate with only 3 weeks to find a home in a new town. Kendra stepped up to the plate, spent time with me to fully understand my needs and concerns and worked to get an offer in front of the seller in a professional timely manner. She worked tirelessly to help us find the right home, negotiated to get us the best deal possible and ensured we were kept up to date throughout the process. We are very happy in our new home! Thanks Kendra! I highly recommend Kendra Reed Porter!

We are trying to buy a condo around $150K at Charlottesville. My wife and I really appreciate the help from Kendra. Since this is our start house, we lack of knowledge on how to buy a property. In fact, Kendra is so nice, and patiently provided so much details and helpful information on every aspects of buying a property. Thanks, Kendra !

My wife and I have been working with Kendra to find our first home. She listened to what we were both looking for, and has found several great houses for us to visit within our price range. She is helping us learn more about the market, and what we should expect from our first home buying experience. We don't think we could have found a realtor to guide us through this process.

We found Kendra Reed to be highly skilled in researching the market, pinpointing our options accurately, responding quickly and effectively to our questions, and an excellent negotiator. She was able to get the selling bank to accept an offer that was $29,000 under the asking price (in a foreclosure situation). We could not be more satisfied with her professionally and personally. Kendra is very personable, easy to work with, and knowledgeable. We highly recommend her as a top-notch realtor!

I have worked with many other realtors in the past and found Kendra Reed to be the most motivated and knowledgable of them all. Ms. Reed was a great negotiator and helped me sell my house quickly. If you're looking for a motivated agent who has your best interest at heart, call Kendra! Kendra, if you see this, many many thanks from our family, the Lewis'.

My husband and I unsuccessfully had worked with 3 other agents looking for the right house. We were both new to the area. When I met Kendra I instantly liked her friendliness, honesty and willingness to do anything to help. She was willing to drive us to numerous locations. Also a variety of homes. She had a good knowledge of the areas. Her expertise utimately helped us find our first dream house. Kendra was most helpful in the search for the perfect equine property for us.

A few months ago my husband and I were looking for homes in the area and met Kendra at an open house. She was so bright and knowledgable about all things Real Estate! We decided to use her to buy our first home and it was the best decision we made. She held our hand through the process and we could not have done it without her!!! Thank you Kendra for everything!!! When we are ready to sell in a few years we will be sure to call you!!!

The best negotiator and very responsive. Was able to provide a referral to lender and closing attorney which made for a smooth process and one stop shop. Someone you can trust. Looks out for you first and foremost!
