In 1996, Bill Port and Rachel Peers met on the job while working at Realty Executives in South Holland, Illinois. At the time, Bill and Rachel were individually, two of the TOP Real Estate agents in the South Suburbs of Chicago. Working within the same Real Estate brokerage office, they soon found a commonality in their work ethic and dedication to their clients. While at Realty Executives, their friendship developed into a romance. As two of the most powerful agents in their market, it didn’t take long for them to soon combine their forces in both their personal and professional careers.
In the spring of 2000 Rachel and Bill were married and officially combined their real estate businesses. Back then, the internet was new to Real Estate. The Ports were on the forefront of combining the technological advances of website marketing along with the good old fashioned service they had provided happy clients for years. This evolved into their branded PortHomeSales.com website.
As the Port’s business grew, and as they started to encompass a greater share of the Northwest Indiana Real Estate Market, Rachel and Bill moved their main operations to RE/MAX of Indiana. As RE/MAX Brokers, the Ports have held offices in Highland, Hammond, Schererville, and currently work from their base office, RE/MAX Realty Associates in Munster, Indiana.
Today, the Ports continue to sell homes in both Indiana and Illinois. They have built a team of real estate agents and support staff to better serve their clients and to reach a larger service area. For the past three years, the Port Home Sales Team has ranked as #1 RE/MAX real estate sales team in Northwest Indiana. All members of the Port team are licensed in both Indiana and Illinois. Their service area extends from the North side of Chicago to Lowell, Indiana. If you are considering buying or selling a home within an hour’s drive from Munster, Indiana or South Holland, IL the Ports are ready to go to work for you!
