"This business is about people and I have had the honor of meeting so many wonderful individuals and families" -Pam Porter

Five Star Professional is pleased to announce Pamela Porter, RE/MAX On the Move, has been chosen as one of Cincinnati's Five Star Real Estate Agents for 2016.

Five Star Professional partnered with Cincy Magazine to recognize a select group of Cincinnati-area real estate agents who provide quality services to their clients. Less than 3 percent of real estate agents in the area were selected. Pamela Porter is featured, along with other award winners, in a special section of the June issue.

"I have been in business for 10 years this July. Prior to my time in real estate, I worked in the architecture and construction industry as a designer for 18 years and still practice by providing design services for my clients, including custom-designed homes and improvements. I have sold more than 215 homes during my tenure as a Realtor and pride myself on being my client's advocate," says Pamela Porter of RE/MAX On the Move. "The Five Star award is special because it is not a peer review or based on volume of sales but instead is the voice of my clients. It says that I am doing my job as their advocate, and that is the greatest gift."

The Five Star Real Estate Agent award program is the largest and most widely published real estate agent award program in North America. Agents are measured using an objective, in-depth research methodology with significant focus on customer feedback and overall satisfaction.

"This business is about people, and I have had the honor of meeting so many wonderful individuals and families. You would think that because I am there to help them realize their dream of home ownership that that is the heart of the story, but the real heart is the impact they have all made on my life. What a gift they are to me," says Pamela.

"Five Star Professional's research is extensive, with more than 10 million consumers, peers and other stakeholders contacted each year. We are relentless in our efforts to identify those professionals with the utmost standard of excellence," says Jonathan Wesser, Research Director, Five Star Professional.
