Bought a home in 2014.
Howard was amazing to work with! I don't have a single complaint. I've worked with several real estate agents over the years and most earned the stereotype associated with real estate agents. Howard was non of those things. He listened to what we wanted and didn't try to show us anything that didn't fit into our requirements. He didn't follow us around through the houses and try and "sell" us on them, he let us "wander" through houses and form our own opinion about them. He didn't constantly bother us, but he was always there when we had a question or wanted to see a house. Anytime we asked him to do something for us it was done right away. I was constantly amazed at how on top of things he was. When we started looking he had just gotten married a few weeks earlier and still he was completely dedicated to helping us whenever we needed him. Howard is solely a buyers agent so you don't have to worry about him trying to push one of his listings on you. I would recommend Howard to anyone and everyone looking to buy a home!!!

Showed home in 2014 in Pines, UT 84660.
Howard is a professional, knowledgeable and attentive agent. As first time home-buyers, Howard took the time to educate us about the whole process. His kind attitude and thorough research helped us narrow down what was important to us, and where we could get it. He was always available to talk to us, and made an effort to not only answer our questions, but to anticipate our desires and needs.

We have loved working with him, and have been grateful for his expertise and skills. We HIGHLY recommend Howard Thruston II to anyone who wants a great agent who will work tirelessly for them.

Showed home in 2013 in Lakeview, Provo, UT 84601.
Howard was very patient with us and very informative. We had a friend in the real estate business that we went thru instead of him after a long search for a home (only went with her because she was a friend). Completely regret not working with Howard the whole time because he was so much more helpful and informative in buying our first home. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone! Great guy!!!

Bought a home in 2014.
"Howard was exceptional in every way. He listened to and resolved all of our concerns, he was prompt, thorough, knowledgeable, personable, always available, patient and fun. He made the process of buying a home very enjoyable. He always treated us as if we were of utmost importance which was all the more amazing because he broke his arm AND got married during this time. We would recommend Howard without reservation to anyone who is looking for a home to buy."

Showed home in 2014 in Saratoga Springs, UT 84043.
Howard was extremely helpful as we searched for a home in Lehi. We lived out of state and were only able to tour homes on weekends and he was always very flexible with our schedule. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and were glad to have Howard's advice and knowledge about the home buying process. Unfortunately, we had to back out of a home offer because of our own unforeseen circumstances, but Howard was patient and understanding. I would definitely refer him to a friend or use him again in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Payson, UT.
Summary - Howard was super professional and a pleasure to work with. Our transaction was a long-distance transaction in that we live in another state. Howard was very accommodating to work with us on our schedule as we traveled in and out of town.

Responsiveness - Most of our communication was text and email. Howard made himself available night and day to keep the transaction moving forward.

Negotiation Skills - I should probably move this to the top of the list because this was the area that impressed me the most. I have worked with several agents and as a general rule agents want to push back on me when I suggest an initial offer. Howard was very willing to back up offers with thoughtful research and present the offers to sellers.

Thank you Howard!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Orem, UT.
You will not find a better real estate agent than Howard Thruston. He is prompt, responsive, personable, knowledgeable, and gets the job done. With multiple offers on our dream starter home, we were worried we would not get it. Thankfully, Howard's ability to follow-up and think outside the box enabled us to get the home at the price we wanted. Throughout the process, he was following up with us, getting us any information we needed, and making sure we were hitting all our deadlines. We would recommend him to anyone. I can say without a doubt we will use him again in the future. All his reviews are exactly what you can expect. You will not be disappointed.

Bought a home in 2013.
Howard Thruston was wonderful to work with. He was a huge help in navigating my first time building a new house. He want above and beyond to work with the contractor and the developer to make everything go as smoothly as possible. He also worked closely with my mortgage officer to get the closing done as soon as possible. I would recommend Howard to anyone who is interested in selling or buying a home. In fact my mom will be using Howard in the spring when she sells her home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Lindon, UT.
Howard is by far the most responsive agent we have worked with. We found a house that we wanted and we were afraid it was going to go fast. Howard worked until midnight on a Saturday night to get the offer in so that we were the first and only offer the seller considered. He followed up with us on each step of process and helped ensure that we met all of the required deadlines and closed on time. We would highly recommend Howard.
