Best Real Estate Agent

Rosemary Porter

What started as “a bit of a joke” has now become arguably the most recognizable realtor image in town. “My partner started calling me ‘Rosie the Realtor,’ and I thought, I can do you one better.” Halifax-bred Porter bought a house in Dartmouth in 2000, which inspired her to get into the realty business. With the help of friends she created the persona now seen everywhere on fliers and fridge magnets. “We consider it a complement when people ask what advertising agency I used.” It’s more than just image, it’s hard work: Porter is the leading agent at Royal LePage Atlantic, of 120 realtors. 209-7073

First runner up: Sandra Bryant, Bryant Realty, 830-4545

Second runner up: Justin Rushdi, Royal LePage Atlantic, 209-5599
