Shannon found the perfect house for us- wonderful! She works so very hard to keep in contact and to find the right house for you. Her knowledge of St. Louis city and region stems from growing up here, a wealth of experience, and an in depth knowledge about everything you would want to know about houses in St. Louis and outside regions. Between herself and her husband Keith, there is nothing they don't know, in my experience about building houses, their design, architecture, gardens and wildlife. After choosing our house, Shannon made the process of obtaining the house as seamless as possible. She has fabulous people skills and was able to negotiate a settlement that suited us. We could not have had better advice all along the way and Shannon still makes herself available to answer questions and give advice. If you choose Shannon to be your real estate agent, you will be very happy with your choice as we were. Alan & Alison H.
We worked with Shannon to sell our home, but our interactions with her began several years before she put a sign up in our yard, when she advised us on worthwhile improvements to make & guided us through a large stack of comps she'd compiled. From those initial consultations until the successful closing, she was resourceful, unflappable, and strategic throughout. Shannon is just supremely competent, which showed in her advice about when to enter the market, her common sense and firm navigation of difficult post-contract negotiations, her easy reachability any time we wanted to talk through an issue, the network of other service providers she's cultivated (her photographer in particular was standout). She made what can easily feel like an overwhelming process really manageable. We're grateful to her & have already begun recommending her to friends. We'd list with her again in a heartbeat. Perry & Anne T.
We are still in awe from our experience with the Howard Team. We had an offer on our home after the first showing, and the sale was finalized within a month. The first meeting my husband and I had with Shannon and her husband Keith instilled confidence that we had chosen the best realtor to sell our home. Their professionalism was evident in that first meeting, and continued throughout the entire process. From the photographer who took the pictures, to the countless documents, and to all the necessary inspections, Shannon made sure we were on task with all of it. They also showed great compassion, as this home had been in our family since 1948, knowing how difficult it can be to say goodbye to so many memories. We have nothing but high praise for Shannon and her husband Keith, and look forward to working with them again in the near future. Susan & Bill G.
Shannon was an incredible realtor on both sides of the table. First she scoured the region to find us our dream home, worked an awesome deal, and then provided the guidance to list with the perfect conditions to sell fast and at the price we were looking for. Constant contact, a wealth of knowledge, and all the best professionals to take care of the deal: Shannon Howard has it all. We never plan to move again but if we do, Shannon and The Howard Team have our business.

Love Shannon! She is a smart negotiator and was patiently responsive to all my questions and needs at all times of the day and night. Will use her again in a heartbeat!!!!!
- Michelle N.
Shannon made selling our home so easy! She was always available to answer my questions. We moved out of state during the sale and Shannon made sure to keep us in the loop. Wonderful experience!
- Kristin G.
Shannon was a great partner in selling my house. She was very responsive to any call, email or text and was very generous with her time. She anticipated possible issues and was strategic and measured, not reactive. I appreciated Shannon's calm, down to earth nature. I would recommend Shannon to a friend, family member or co-worker. I hope to not buy or sell in the near future, but if I do I'll work with Shannon again.

I was probably a challenging first time home buyer, in that I wanted a specific house style, but not exactly in a specific area. Shannon went above and beyond, showing me dozens of houses all over St. Louis, never wavering in enthusiasm as we went "on to the next!" After finding the one, I was sure negotiations were going to fall through after coming to a stand still, but Shannon refused to give up and personally found a way to make it happen. I wouldn't have my house today if it wasn't for her.
- Jack K.
Shannon is so knowledgeable, helpful, and just plain ON it. She made everything about our long distance move comfortable and easy. She was personable and never pushy. She wanted us to be happy. She understood what we wanted, and more importantly, our budget, and found us the perfect place to call home. She is literally the ONLY agent I will ever use again.
- Mitch & Lauri S.
I was buying my FIRST home and was so happy to have Shannon as my realtor. She listened to what I wanted and asked questions about what I wanted that I’d never thought about. She gave knowledgeable opinions to the different areas of St. Louis and was available whenever we had questions about the process and quickly fit appointments into our schedule and hers. She can also recommend home inspectors and insurance agents and she worked well with our mortgage company to make sure the process always kept moving as we closed on our house. She always looked out for me and gave clear expectations. Highly recommended!
- Leila C.
I wish there were 10 stars. Shannon is very knowledgeable and very professional. She guided me through the sale of my home and during some tense times for me due to my schedule she made me feel at ease. Shannon kept me informed every step of the way. I have already recommended her to others.
- Deb P.
Shannon helped us sell our condo and buy a new house within a 45 day period. What impressed me most about Shannon is just how effective she is in meeting the needs of both buyers and sellers. She is always professional, even in the face of challenging clients. We had a difficult buyer for the home that we sold, and she was able to communicate calmly and firmly in order to get us to closing. We will definitely be using Shannon again for our home buying needs and would recommend her to anyone.

It was time to move. I knew it, but I didn't know how to go about it. Selling one house while buying another? So many variables....scary! Fortunately, there are real estate agents like Shannon Howard. Shannon was nothing but professional, knowledgeable and responsive. She helped me through the selling of my house (on the first day, for more than the asking price!) and each step of the process up until closing. At the same time she was showing my fiance and I house after house after house....we had a very specific vision of what we were looking for (historic but not yet updated....yes to this neighborhood, no to that one) in our next home and she had to show us tons of houses (and help us make quite a few offers) until we found the right one, that ended up being in an area we hadn't even considered. The purchase got a bit complicated and dramatic at times, but Shannon was always there with a recommended course of action and to make sure that our interests were protected. Shannon knows her stuff. By the end of the process, I considered her a friend. You definitely want to work with her!

Shannon was great to work with and really listened to what we were looking for in a house. When we completely changed our criteria after looking at a few properties, Shannon was quick to send us more listings and didn't mind the sudden change in location and type of property. My husband and I would recommend her in a heart beat.
- Adam & Alex S.
Detailed, in-depth knowledge of current surrounding housing market. Was clear and direct in assessment of the house prior to listing, which appropriately framed expectations. Put together sharp listing with flattering pictures and good descriptives. Process went smoothly.

We have just sold a house with the help of Shannon Howard. From the beginning we have been impressed with her professional manner. She has answered all our questions in a timely manner and given prompt response to all contacts. On our first visit to our home she was very patient with our questions and made a thorough unrushed evaluation of our home. She reported to us her evaluation and comparison method and confirmed what we already knew regarding our community. Her experience with detailed information helped us decide on the price to list the home. The accuracy of her information was very evident. Shannon took excellent photos of our home and displayed them in a manner that gave us an advantage. When an offer was presented she answered questions but did not choose our response; rather she waited to hear what we considered to be a fair response. This continued through the entire negotiation. As first-time sellers we felt she was an excellent guide for us. We are happy to recommend her highly and will certainly seek her service for our next purchase or sale.
- Marilyn & Howard T.
Shannon was the ultimate professional. Because this was an older home, we had some problems with inspections. Shannon was always there to put things in perspective, pull me off the ceiling when things got really hairy, and let inspectors in repeatedly. She also helped us realize when we needed to give in on things and when we needed to hold firm. Although selling a house is nerve-racking, Shannon made the process as painless as possible and sold our house in an amazingly short period of time. The highest recommendation that I can give Shannon is that I would happily use her again for another home sale or purchase.
- Christine J.
I had a very poor experience with my first real estate agent, so I turned to Shannon hoping that she could guide me better in the right direction to what I was looking for. And boy did she! After she found out what kind of area and things I was looking for she showed me several homes in my price range and in the neighborhoods I was looking that were good possibilities. After a short few weeks of looking we found the perfect home for me in the perfect location. I've been living there a month and absolutely love the place. If you want someone that genuinely cares that you find the right home for you and your family, I would highly recommend Shannon Howard.

We were trying to sell our home while we lived out of state. We had a renter that had recently had some medicial problems. Our experience was that Shannon went above & beyond the call of duty in all aspects of our listing. From arranging showings (working around our renter), to getting estimates on various problems that came up.ie fallen tree limbs, repairman,etc. from the very beginning Shannon saw the charm part of our house that she was able to point out to prospective buyers so they were able to see past the clutter that came with our renter. I would feel secure in recommending Shannon to anyone, knowing full well that she would do everything possible to either sell their house or find them the perfect one.
- Jan & Dave N.
We know Shannon to be conscientious and thoughtful. Her pictures really captured the essence of the house (our family home) and we were grateful for the quick sale. I appreciate that she contacted the local municipality and forwarded the inspection list so we knew some of the must haves on the house updates. Providing us with current comps and other available homes was a big plus too. Leads on Estate Sale people was an added plus for us. She certainly looks after her clients.
- Lesa M.
We received excellent service from Shannon when selling our home for retirements. We were referred by a friend and will always refer to Shannon. Thank you!!!
- Ken & Dian Hilker
In my search for a realtor, I was looking for someone with a knowledge of the saint louis market and an eye for interesting vintage homes. Shannon stood out as the realtor for me. I had a pretty demanding list of "must haves" and the listings seemed pretty bleak at the time. Shannon reassured me that the right house would eventually come on the market. She was right. She found me a house that more than satisfied all of my "must haves" in the neighborhood at the top of my list. Shannon's patience, eye for homes, knowledge of the market, and strong work ethic make me comfortable recommending her to anyone for their real estate needs.
- Lance B.
Shannon helped us buy our first house. She specializes in unique and mid-century homes and that's exactly what she brought to us. We lucked out and only went out looking at houses for two weekends before we found "the one". She was very helpful in advising us through the process and working with the seller who was representing herself. Thanks, Shannon!
- Angela F. & Chris S.
Thank you to Shannon for the excellent service she provided on the sale of my home! Her blog is what sets her apart and I knew she would work great with me. i would use her again and highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying!
- Stephanie E.

We were looking for a special agent to handle our parents home, the home we grew up in. We called Shannon and she did an outstanding job during the interview process. What a great job she did and we would have no problem recommending her. Thanks Shannon.
