"Howard's professionalism and attention to detail are unmatched. He used extensive data, his own expertise, and feedback from others in his office to position our home on the market to maximize its value and minimize the time on the market. And he did this all while always being understanding of our family's needs and concerns. This resulted in the obtainment of multiple offers within a few days on the market and the sale of our home over its asking price. We strongly recommend Howard for any real estate needs." - Ferraro
"Howard is an excellent advisor. He listens, takes down your concerns, and provides excellent guidance depending on your needs, not his. For example, I was new to the area and not sure if I wanted to dip my toe into the real estate market (with a modest purchase) or jump in with both feet (with a larger purchase). I always felt like Howard was on my side. To this day, Howard is a trusted advisor who I call upon when looking for other services or recommendations. He is that kind of partner." - Steve F.
"We have had a wonderful experience selling our house with Howard and Susan Meyers and The Hudson Company. Howard and Susan are honest, professional and caring agents who have gone out of their way to listen to our needs and guide us through many decisions. They understand our local real estateÊ market very well, have provided outstanding marketing strategies to sell our home quickly, and, above all, have been very enjoyable and fun to work with. They have made selling our house as stress-free as possible (which is hard with three kids and a dog) and we highly recommend them. We just wish that we were staying in the area so that they could assist us in buying a new house!!" - Anon

"Howard was referred to us by a work colleague because of husband's move from Houston, Texas, to Evanston, Illinois. Howard is excellent & if we could rate him 10 stars, we would! Before the move, Howard sent us listings from various suburbs of homes matching our needs (i.e., enough space to move in my elderly parents). Through the listings, we narrowed our search to Evanston & flew up to look at homes. Howard had a schedule of about 10 homes for us to view with our teenagers in one busy weekend. He was patient, knowledgeable, professional and friendly. What more to say about him? The weekend we spent with him, we found our home and made an offer. We love our home, neighborhood & high school here in Evanston. Howard also helped us out on a last-minute issue of finding an apartment for my high-school age daughter and I so she could start marching band with her school in early August 2018. He found one in such short notice. My daughter was able to meet high school students from marching band one month before school started, making an easier adjustment for her as en entering 9th grader. Howard didn't have to do that, but he went above and beyond in helping our family. We absolutely recommend him and if we ever moved again in the area, we would hire Howard. " - Ken and Alisa B.
"Great people. Very responsive and knowledgeable. " - Joe K. and Lan C.
