"We were highly impressed with Howard while looking at homes in Hinsdale so when it came time to sell our home in Chicago we immediately thought of him. From the start he and Amy were highly professional yet easy to work with.
They helped bring out value in our home by providing practical advice for decluttering and staging, emphasizing what is worth doing and what is not. For things worth doing that we couldn't do ourselves, Howard lined up workers for us to take care of it. When it came time to list, Howard and Amy did an excellent job of generating buzz around our home through a carefully worded description, professional photos, a virtual tour, their use of pre-MLS tools, then the MLS itself.
We listed on the pocket market on a Wednesday, had showings on Thursday, listed on the MLS and had an offer on Friday leading into the open house on Saturday where we got a second offer and lots of other serious interest. After the multiple offers were resolved we accepted an offer ABOVE our list price with an AS-IS clause! From then on Howard made the process super easy. He handled overseeing the inspection and various other pre-sale issues, including the sewer line rodding that from his description was far from pleasant. He just took care of things so that we didn't have to do anything but move.
If we need to move again we will definitely be using Howard and Amy! " - Frank T.
"Working with Howard and Amy has been nothing short of an amazing experience. We were BLOWN away by just how seamless and pain-free they made not only listing/selling our house but also buying another at the same time! They really are a dynamic duo and we cannot say enough great things about their wealth of knowledge, experience and professionalism. We are so happy and humbled that they were the ones we got to share this experience with because they really do care! They want to understand what you are looking for and want to make sure you are happy above anything else [within their control of course].
Once we got into contract to sell our home, as well as buy a new one, they did not disappear. On a regular basis, they continued to check in with us to make sure we were okay, to make sure we didn’t need anything or have any questions that they can help answer. That was so comforting in an already daunting experience where there are multiple things going on at the same time for weeks to come! They also helped prepare us along the way to make sure we knew what was coming up next and explained to us what to do so that we could be prepared. This is HUGE to keep nerves under control, let me tell you!
Did I mention that they sold our house in one day! YES and well above list price. This is all down to the way Howard and Amy understand the market, the comps in the area and their amazing ability to market your home beautifully and strategically. It’s really great watching them in action.
Another great reason to work with Howard and Amy is that they have a network of people whom they work with, for example Mortgage Brokers, Lawyers, Builders etc. which they can recommend to you, without any pressure. Not a single person we worked with, within the network of people Howard and Amy recommended to us, let us down. In fact it all ran so smoothly like a well-oiled machine!!! Not to mention they were all so professional and friendly to work with.

"Buying a home can be an overwhelming task. Buying your first home amplifies those feelings even more. From our first meeting to the closing table, Amy, Howard & the Duong Kim team took care of us. They were there for us every step of the way, taking time to explain the various steps of the process and remembering that while home buying and selling is an everyday occurrence to them, it was a major life milestone for us. Whether it was showing us tons of houses or answering late-night texts, Amy and Howard went above and beyond advocating for and supporting us. It was comforting knowing that they had our best interest top of mind no matter what. Because of Amy and Howard not only did we find our perfect home but we gained two great friends along the way. I would recommend them to every single person looking to buy a home in the Chicagoland area and beyond!" - Piper S. (Buyer)
