Wonderful to work with! They sold my home in about two weeks after listing!
We weren’t looking to buy a house, but I’m glad we came to Amanda Howard when we did. Whitney Stringer was a perfect fit for us! She listened to our concerns, answered our questions, and was patient and very professional. We looked at the house on 6/16, put in an offer on 6/17, and closed on 7/27. Everything went smoothly (and quickly). If we ever have to sell or buy again, we’d definitely go through AHRE!
This wonderful company was extremely helpful with the purchase of our new home! We worked with Whitney, she is very professional and personable and now good friend. She always made time for us when we had questions or wanted to look at more houses. We would highly recommend her!
I don’t write many reviews. And usually when I do it’s not because of a wonderful experience. BUT I am so unbelievably impressed with Natuski. I work out with Amanda and Clair, and in casual conversation of us considering buying a house, they put me in touch with Natuski. I cannot say enough good things about her. She is the one you want, if you want someone friendly but serious about working for you. She was patient when we went in all different directions, and really helped me narrow down loo…
Natalie Jones is amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and lovely to deal with. She knows the Huntsville area market and will work very hard for you. Natalie always put our family needs first! She represented me in my first real estate auction experience. We won it and Natalie made it happen all the way through to closing, very smooth with no surprises. You can’t go wrong with Natalie and the Amanda Howard team of professionals.
As a home builder, the agents at AHRE have spoiled me. They are well educated in all aspects of the market, highly driven, skilled and well seasoned by the training they receive working for Amanda and Travis Howard. They don’t believe in the word “try”. They believe in the word “do”.
Amanda Power went far above what I would expect from an Agent. Always available and always has our best interest in mind.
I have never been so impressed with a real estate firm as I have been with Amanda Howard! My listing agent, Michelle Daymond, was honest, efficient and totally knowledgeable about all facets of listing a house for sale. This firm is completely up-to-speed on a technical level I have never seen in real estate. This was as stress-free as selling a home can be. Thank you.
I have worked at Amanda Howard Real Estate for the past year, and it has been a phenomenal experience. From the exposure to young professionals performing at a high level, to assisting families in the purchase and sale of their dream homes, to the level of personal support and encouragement shown on a continual basis, my career is incredibly fulfilling!
I moved down here in April 2015 from New York and I did not know any one besides my brother. This company took me in and I consider them my second family. I have had numerous jobs in the past and this is by far the best company I have ever worked for. They also helped me purchase my first house for a great price and great conditions. Nothing but amazing this to say about this company!
