REIT ETF (Exchange-Traded Funds)
Exchange-traded funds that invest the majority of assets in equity REIT securities and related derivatives. REIT ETFs are passively managed around an index of publicly traded real estate owners; indexes may vary from provider to provider but two popular benchmarks are the MSCI U.S. REIT Index and the Dow Jones U.S. REIT Index, both of which cover about two-thirds of the aggregate value of the publicly-traded REIT market domestically. REIT ETFs are characterized by their above-average dividend yields. REIT securities have traits of both equities and fixed income securities; high dividend yields provide consistent income (REITS must pay out the majority of profits to investors each year), but valuations can swing along with the equity market. Investors should read prospectus materials closely when researching REIT ETFs; many different indexes with a variety of focuses (commercial mortgages, high-risk mortgages etc.) exist.
Natsuki and Clair were the best buyers and sellers agents I have ever worked with. They treated us like family. It was a truly pleasant experience. I definitely recommend Amanda Howard agency to anyone buying or selling a house.

Blessed to be part of this team! Thankful for the opportunity AHRE has given me. I love my job and the people that I work with.
Amanda and team, Thank you for assisting our buyers find their dream home! They still talk about their awesome experience!
We worked with Natalie, a buyer specialist. She was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. She was laid back while showing us homes (patient with our 4 year old sons!), and answered all questions. She was easy to work with and met all our needs. She assisted in making the buying process as easy as possible. Everything went smoothly from initially contacting her to closing on our family home.
We were very pleased with the professionalism, friendliness, and great communication with Natalie. She was a pleasure to work with. The home buying process was made so easy and everything went smoothly.
Our agent (Whitney Stringer) was great! She was easy to work with and only showed us homes that we were interested in seeing. She even rearranged her weekend schedule to meet us when we came in from out of town to look at homes on short notice. She was professional, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. Because of here we would gladly work with Amanda Howard again in the future.
I’ve never felt more taken care of in the process of selling my house. Thanks Michelle. You are a rose among real estate thorns! I can’t express my gratitude with words to describe how you’ve helped me with closing a chapter in my life with the sale of my late fathers house. Thank you.
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!
