Get to know Ann Cummings
Welcome, and thanks for checking out my site! I LOVE what I do, and that's helping buyers & sellers in the coastal areas of New Hampshire & southeastern Maine. I've been doing so for the last 30+ years, full-time right here, so know the Portsmouth and Seacoast area market thoroughly, and have seen many changes over that time. The one thing that doesn't change, however, is the dream to own one's home. I believe that those who truly want to own their own home should be able to, and that's what I'm all about.....helping those who want their own piece of that dream!!
My husband, Jim Lee, and I work as a team, and we both bring many years of real estate know-how and skills to the table. Jim has been helping people buy and sale real estate for 35+ years, in Knoxville TN and here in this area. We've each bought and sold real estate, so we know and understand the emotions and stress that can be involved in the process. Jim and I work hard to make each sale for our clients as stress-free and as smooth as possible, and we also strive to bring some fun to the table as well.
I grew up in the Air Force, moving all about the country, and having to adapt to the changes each move brought. Because of that, I know first hand what it's like to pick up and move. It's not always easy, nor is it always a move someone really wants. I work hard to ensure each move and home purchase/sale is as smooth and pleasant as it can be. Moving and the home buying/selling process is stressful, and my goal is to take some of that stress away.
To make sure we continually offer the best real estate service we can, we always make it a point to attend educational sessions, and we're both very active in the REALTOR organization. We've each earned several designations and certifications through our on-going education: GRI (Graduate REALTORS Institute-a comprehensive educational program that provides additional education above that needed to earn a real estate license); CBR (Certified Buyer Representative-this is a comprehensive training course with extensive education regarding representation of buyers in the home-buying process); CRS (Certified Residential Specialist - comprehensive training focusing on representation of sellers in the home-selling process); REALTOR (member of the National Association of REALTORS - subscribing to a strict Code of Ethics in all real estate dealings); e-PRO (training course that provides extensive educational on working with internet-empowered consumers), SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist - training that provides us with resources and skills to help seniors with transistions). We atttend conferences and continued educational courses to always stay on top of the current trends and industry changes.
Within the REALTOR organization, we've been very active, and we work very hard to promote what we, as REALTORS, stand for......the protection of private property rights and the right to enjoy it. We both serve on various committees on our local level, as well as at the state level and the national level. I've served as President of the NH Association of REALTORS, and I've been given the great honor of being chosen "State REALTOR of the Year" for the NH Association of REALTORS.
We LOVE what we do, both for buyers & sellers, and for REALTORS throughout our organization!

My professional concentration is on residential real estate - single family homes, condos, vacation homes, multi-family homes, and land - and I focus primarily on the coastal area of New Hampshire (Portsmouth, Rye, Hampton, Exeter, Stratham, Greenland, Dover, Durham, Rochester & surrounding areas) and the southeastern corner of Maine (Kittery, Eliot, York, South Berwick, Berwick, North Berwick, and surrounding areas). I'm a licensed Broker in both New Hampshire and Maine, and I've been licensed since 1981.
My goal is to help educate each of my clients - buyers & sellers - on the New Hampshire & Maine real estate market and on what's needed to help them achieve their real estate goals, whether buying or selling. The price ranges in my market can run from $250,000 to $12,000,000, and I work hard to help each client make the best and most-informed decision they can about their real estate purchase or sale.
I'm a big proponent of using today's technology to make the process the best it can be for all involved. I have an abundance of area information on my websites, and I encourage you to visit them for all kinds of helpful and useful information. www.AnnCummings.com and www.PortsmouthNewHampshireHomes.com will provide you with great information to help you learn about this wonderful area I love calling HOME!! And while you're visiting my websites, be sure to check out properties available throughout NH & Maine, as well as parts of Vermont and Massachusetts. Let me know how I can be of assistance to you with your real estate needs! I'm here to help YOU!!
With me on your side, you get FULL-TIME professional service with a personal touch....."Service with a Smile" ;-))
