"He [Howard] is the best!"

"Howard was great through the entire process. Always willing to meet and show us any house we wanted around our busy schedules. He was aware of the history of the home and answered all our questions promptly.

Howard, may not know this, but not only was he our Realtor, but he is now family for life. Ha HA... We miss seeing him and have referred him to our daughter and future son in law and other friends as well.

He is the best!"

"I would not hesitate to recommend Howard ..."

"Howard was a tremendous help in our relocation from out of state. Always easy to reach, he was responsive to our needs and went above the call of duty to help us through some tricky issues uncovered in the inspection. Since we could not be there in person, it was comforting to have a professional like Howard looking out for our best interest to make the transaction go smoothly. I would not hesitate to recommend Howard and his team for any transaction."

“He kept me up to date on every step of the process —”

"Howard went above and beyond in helping me sell my house. My house was located about 30 miles away, but that didn’t stop him from holding open houses, making sure I was never short of flyers or anything else I might have needed. He kept me up to date every step of the process — feedback about showings, what was happening in the market around me, and about our pricing strategy in the several months it took to sell my house. I was never pressured into anything and always felt like he was on my side during the entire process. I would definitely want him to list my next sale or help me find my next home. Highly recommended."

We wish you continued success."
