Buying or selling a house is both a rational and an emotional decision. That’s why clients love working with Howard, a sought-after and top-performing real estate professional who has enjoyed helping clients make rewarding real estate decisions since 2005.
His prior career experience is an uncommon marriage of heart and mind. Howard’s first profession was as a social worker providing outreach to persons with emotional disabilities. After that, he discovered he also enjoyed the analytical and fast-paced work of an independent trader. As a result, he spent 25 years at the Chicago Board of Trade, where he specialized in financial products, specifically long-term U.S. Treasury Bonds.
This unique foundation gives Howard the intellectual and emotional intelligence to help his clients make real estate transactions that are both personally satisfying and financially sound. Recognizing how stressful the real estate process can be for clients, he keeps them updated with thorough and timely information. In addition to his comprehensive knowledge of the North Shore real estate market, Howard also analyzes current economic data to help guide buyers and sellers.
With his analytical skills, Howard helps buyers understand the implications of not only a home purchase but also its future resale. They also draw on his personal experience having completed five extensive home renovations on the North Shore.
Sellers rely on Howard’s expert financial analysis in determining an equitable asking price and negotiating on their behalf. By separating the emotional elements from the sales process, Howard helps sellers successfully navigate complicated transactions.
In 2005, the North Shore Barrington Real Estate Board named Howard and Susan “Rookie of the Year,” and together they have made The Meyers Group a respected name in North Shore and Chicago real estate.
Married for 36 years, Howard and Susan have three adult daughters and a flat-coated retriever. When he is not working, Howard is likely to be pulling weeds, planting perennials, or finding ways to incorporate the vegetables from his garden into tonight’s dinner.
