What clients are saying:

“Thank you @HowardArnoff for putting up with us, helping us sell our house and helping us find our new home. We truly are very grateful.”
Virgil and Courtney, Summerville
(and I’m very proud this was also posted to both Twitter and Facebook and shared with their friends.)

“All we can say is thank you. You have gone above and beyond what we would have expected a real estate agent to do for their client.”
Pat and Kelly, Charleston

“We spent several years researching and visiting possible retirement locations. We found Howard’s web site to be the most comprehensive and user-friendly of all that we explored in the Charleston / Summerville area. We exchanged several emails with Howard and he provided excellent information about neighborhoods and the area in general. We narrowed our list of realtors we wanted to meet to two; however, once we met Howard, we knew we had found a realtor who truly understood what we were looking for in a neighborhood and a home.  As it turned out, we also found a wonderful new friend. 

Although we had no plans to actually purchase a home during this trip, Howard showed us a couple of neighborhoods but when he turned into The Ponds, it was love at first sight! Howard was instrumental in coordinating all the details to finalize the construction contract for our new home and in assisting with the mortgage process all in less than one week. Howard is knowledgeable, professional and a joy to work with.  If you are looking to relocate / retire to the Charleston / Summerville area, Howard is your man.”
Christi and Mike, San Antonio

“My fiance and I were first time home buyers and Howard did an excellent job of making sure we were comfortable with every step of the process. He understood the type of house we were looking for and was able to show us several that we liked. After what seemed like forever looking at homes, we finally put an offer on the last house we saw! Through every step of the process, whether it was showing us a potential home or answering a million questions we had about the closing process, Howard was great! If you are looking for a knowledgeable Realtor who will keep your best interests in mind, I recommend Howard Arnoff!”
Allison and Nick, Goose Creek

“We were first time home buyers with a specific house in mind from out of state, so we had to make the most of the time we were in town to look. Howard did an excellent job of helping us refine our search and optimize the amount of time we had to look, so that we could see as many houses as possible in a short time span. He showed a great understanding of the activities in the area. We truly believe we found the perfect house for us, and Howard made closing a breeze. He has also been a most useful resource since closing, answering many of our questions and providing very useful advice.”
Jason and Paul, North Charleston

“More than anything, thank you for your help and we’re so glad we were able to work with you. Our first time buying a home was a positive, fulfilling experience and a great deal because of you.”
Matt and Caroline, Goose Creek

“We wanted to say thanks again for all your help in getting us into our first home.  Not only were we first time buyers but we were doing it from 2,700 miles away.  Your website was extremely helpful in helping us get a good idea of the neighborhoods from afar and when we came out and met you in person, we, of course, were able to find our perfect home!  You and your team made us feel very confident that everything was being taken care of both properly and timely so we could focus on our big move. 

We really appreciate all the personal attention we received before, during and after our purchase.  We love our neighborhood and look forward to our new Charleston life!  Thank you and we hope to work with you again in the future!”
Bobby and Brianna, Mount Pleasant

“Howard, I just wanted to say thanks again for all your help and guidance during the purchase of my home. Being a first-time home buyer I was unaware of exactly how much I didn’t know. Your experience and expertise made the whole process flow almost seamlessly. In addition, I really respect the level of professionalism, honesty and ethical behavior you exhibited throughout the whole transaction. You’ve earned my trust and respect, and I will be happy to recommend you to any of my friends, family and co-workers down the road.

Now that we have closed, I can finally stop worrying about the details and celebrate the fact that I am now a homeowner. Thanks again for all your help and guidance and I look forward to working with you in the future.”
Chris, Johns Island

“Howard Arnoff has been the best realtor we’ve met, bar none. When we were selling our first home, we met with at least 3 or 4 realtors and quickly rejected going with any of them — too pushy, rates unreasonable, abrasive attitudes, etc., — with much frustration we managed to sell our own home.

Upon moving to Charleston and finding Howard, we were instantly comfortable and were able to smoothly find, negotiate and purchase a home in just a few days.

Not only has he accommodated our sometimes odd requests … but he has continued to stay involved. Howard is the only realtor we have ever used, and the only realtor we ever plan on using again.”
Craig and Laura, Summerville 

“After Hurricane Katrina, my husband and I were moving to Charleston SC without ever having visited the city before. Being an Internet user, I searched many different Realtors on line. I found Howard Arnoff, and was immediately impressed that he was donating portions of his commissions to Katrina relief through the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity. Due to the fact that we were communicating from different cities and mostly by email, Howard was always quick with a return reply and had ample pictures of various homes. In fact, we became so reliant on Howard and his great suggestions that we scheduled a weekend trip into the city and found the perfect house for us on the very first day! He’s not only an outstanding Realtor and Internet savvy, but a great communicator, tour guide, and now friend. With so many choices out there, I recommend Howard Arnoff and his first class service for all your home buying needs.”
Julie and Kip, Charleston 

“This is a letter of appreciation regarding Howard Arnoff‘s personal care and assistance to my family. We relocated to Charleston as I accepted a position with the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center – Charleston. The move was coordinated within the government whereas I secured Mr. Arnoff’s services on his merit as a federal relocation expert, I had neither prior experience nor references for him.

Our expectation for Howard was that he would be generally efficient with no personalization. We anticipated help with the realtor’s goal to buy the most expensive house and move on.  As such, Diana and I spent many hours on the internet looking for the “perfect” home in the “perfect” neighborhood. All of our advance efforts regarding the purchase of a home were for naught as many favored houses sold before we were ready, were not as advertised or just weren’t right. We found that for the all of the internet’s advantages, its usage was poor in determining many factors: quality of the neighborhood, accessibility, new trends, traffic, etc.

Howard proved remarkable as we moved forward to purchase a house. His area knowledge of services, communities and all the issues that a family relocating demands is incredible. He literally spent days with us committed to getting the “perfect” house. As we continued, several issues and concerns developed that he tackled smoothly from the perspective of a friend, not a salesman. Simply, he made our family’s challenge his own and would not be stopped

Howard received a call from us on a Sunday morning before 7am. His response was his normal cheery laugh while informing us that he had found the perfect house. All before 7 am on a Sunday morning. The story should end as we bought that house that is now our home.

However, we ran into problems beyond those anticipated during settlement. Howard had a hand in resolving them all. After settlement and today, we call him for directions to a park or advice on purchasing appliances or simply to say hello. Beyond being a phenomenal person and an incredible talent, he is a genuine gentleman.

We were fortunate that our path’s crossed.  My family can say without hesitation that anyone needing help in the purchase of a home would be remiss not utilizing Howard.”
Gregory and Diana, Goose Creek 

“Thank you again for all your help during the process of selling my home. Your constant devotion reduced the stress of selling my home tremendously. All of the advice you gave me before, during and after the sale of my house were right on target. Your flexibility to change marketing strategies enabled me to have my home sell quickly.

In closing, I would like to say that few people realize what it takes to be a real estate agent. If you think about it, real estate agents are like salesman, psychiatrists and doctors. They know how to sell a house like a salesman, they know how to listen like a psychiatrist and they prescribe change to fix problems when needed like doctors. So thanks for doing all of those things for my family.”
Susan, Summerville
