Donald Porter


As a Hamilton native and a seasoned real estate professional, I value and recognize the trust my clients place in me and I strive daily to exceed their expectations. In addition to my deep connections throughout the Hamilton real estate community, I am also the founder of Porter & Associates. At Porter & Associates, we take a team approach to real estate. Our clients deserve the full service and attention that only a team of experts can consistently provide. Working with us, you will have the personal attention to the client-agent relationship improved by the professionalism, innovative marketing strategies and consistency of a thoughtful business model. I attribute my success not only to my passion for homes, but also to my understanding of the psychology of buying and selling. On a personal note, I enjoy hiking, sports, theatre and above all I love spending time with my lovely wife and two amazing children.

I am a licensed Realtor and specialize in helping first-time home buyers and young families find their home. Having moved a lot, I understand what to look for in a home to ensure my clients are getting the right type of home for their needs, at the best price! I have also worked extensively with investors and first time home buyers! Always looking for new trendy neighbourhoods, I keep my clients informed of real estate opportunities in those areas. I thrive at finding great deals for my clients! I have a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management which has helped me build strong relationships with my clients.

Josh Cull-Hewitt


Being raised in Caledonia, I was able to be in the middle of rural Haldimand County and urban Hamilton. This taught me the best that both worlds have to offer, which is knowledge that I can readily apply to help my clients. My work ethic, outgoing personality, and positive attitude are traits that help me ensure I put my clients best interest first, and assist them in anyway that I can. I grew up always wanting to help people. Real estate can be intimidating; for most, it is the biggest investment they will make. If I can help ease the stress that comes with any real estate transaction then I know I have achieved my goal. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing ice and ball hockey, and if possible, catching my favourite sports teams’ games.

Julia Porter

Office Manager

As the team's office manager, I thrive on organizing all of the extremely important details for my team when it comes to paperwork and marketing. When I’m not at the office, I am generally at home with my 2 little kids who are the absolute joy of my life. We love exploring parks and new hiking trails with our dog, Bruce.
