There is such a thing as casting too wide of a net with respect to leasing as it can cause you to lose focus and become stuck in "shopping mode". Unfortunately for Ryan, I am of the school of hard knocks so the hard way it was!
Even so, Ryan was the consummate professional as he showed no sign of impatience, always flexible and ready to help, checked in regularly and really helped me to understand the real estate leasing arena.
The one thing that impressed me the most about Ryan was his work ethic. This became evident in the lease contract negotiation process. I'll just say that there were things that I was ready to concede which I would have greatly regretted. Ryan made sure I understood exactly what I was doing and how it would impact me in the future if I were to concede in those areas. A professional is someone who acts on your behalf even when it's easier not to do so. That is Ryan!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Savannah, TX.
Ryan was an awesome real estate agent. He was a wealth of knowledge, flexible with time, and made himself available to meet and look at properties on short notice. He was able to guide me and my husband as we had extremely different tastes in what we wanted in a home, and helped us meet in the middle to find our dream home! I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a home!
Ryan was absolutely fabulous to work with! We were 1st time home buyers and had tons of questions that he was able to answer on the spot, and if not, he always made sure to get back with us that evening on follow up information. We saw at least 4 dozen homes in a 4 month period...which was exhausting and it happened to fall in one of the busiest times of the season as well as the most market depleted times in years! It was the perfect storm - a sellers market, low inventory for buyers, and lowest interest rates in decades...so it was a mad dash for us and just about every other person in the Dallas metroplex to make the jump and purchase a home! But, I have to say Ryan handled it with continued positive attitude, professional advice, and extremely quick turnaround time!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Fort Worth, TX.
We were really concerned about selling our property. We moved from the home six years prior and had been renting it out for almost five years because we owed so much more than the home was valued at. We decided to try the market after our tenant moved out. Ryan visited the property during our move out walk through. He told us everything he believed needed to be repaired or updated. He hired someone he really trusted to photograph the property. He put together a wonderful flyer. A great review of the house and helped us value the property. We had an offer over asking within 24 hours and a couple of backup offers waiting in the event our deal didn't go through. He didn't play games with us or our buyer. He was extremely professional and made us feel at ease. He handled everything for us and the transaction went smoothly. We would highly recommend Ryan Howard to anyone.
The whole process from start to finish was beyond my expectations. From the day we spoke and he offered his recommendations for getting my house ready to sell, through the closing process was unbelievable. And he got the full asking price for my home in 2-days on the market. Would highly recommend Ryan to my friends or associates for a quick; care free selling or buying experience.
We purchase properties in the Fort Worth, TX area, and Ryan is our go to source for these acquisitions. His knowledge and responsiveness is what sets him apart from other agents/brokers we have used previously. Ryan has always been there without delay for all of our questions or concerns we have had during a transaction. A true professional and great representative of the real estate industry!
