                      Adam did an amazing job helping me find my home. He is very knowledgeable about the market in the area. He always provided with me with great recommendations without ever pushing me into something that was not in my best interest. I would highly recommend having Adam represent you to buy or sell your home.

                    • Adam helped me buy a home

                        Adam was great! My wife and I had Adam help us with purchasing our first home. Through all the questions we had and numerous properties we looked at Adam was extremely helpful. From going over the home buying process in depth when we first met to seeing things we didn't even look at while doing a home viewing he was great! If we ever need to sell/buy in the future Adam will be our first call.

                      • I would highly recommend Adam as your realtor. He was very thorough in his research on my behalf. He presented his opinion on every house that we looked at without pressuring me to do anything that wasn't in my best interest. He stayed in contact without being pushy and kept me informed of where we were in the process at all times.

                        - P. Convery, Viking Hills
                      • Adam is very experienced and thus has been through the ups and downs of the market and the growth of our city. He helped me find the perfect home in 2012, is selling it for me now, and recently sold me the perfect new home. He works hard, is prompt, efficient, and well connected which helps. He's easygoing and enjoyable to work with. He makes you feel like you're the only one he is working with at any given time even though he's always busy.

                        - S. Hocker, Kutzky Neighborhood
                      • Adam Howell helped my SO and I find the perfect starter home. He is very kind and personable, we could ask him all types of questions. He made the house hunting and purchasing enjoyable and easy. He took his time with us, and because of that we definitely recommend! Thank you Adam for everything you did for us!

                        - M. Puskala
                      • Adam Howell did an exceptional job making sure I understood the first time home buying process & helped me find my dream starter home! He was always there when I needed him from looking at homes to questions about appliances. In addition, Serena was amazing for organizing my finances and helping with FHA and other options in my best interest. She was always a step ahead of the process & explained everything wonderfully! A great team that Coldwell has & I would definitely use them again :) Amazing work & support through this process. Everyone was completely friendly and helpful!

                      • Adam was beyond exceptional. By far the best agent I have worked with. He went out of his way to assure this long distance transaction ran smoothly, was ALWAYS available (even with time difference), and kept me in constant communication on all aspects of the process. I have already recommended him to others, and will continue to do so! This was a long distance transaction, and it went better than some local purchases I have done in the past.

                        - Margi H
                      • Plain and simple, Adam is great to work with. I'll absolutely chose to work with him for any real estate needs going forward. I met Adam many years ago at a coffee stop where I mentioned in passin g I was interested in hobby farm style home around the Rochester area. Adam took it upon himself to email me properties that he felt may fit my needs every few months or so. He even took time to show me a few when I wanted to see. He was very patient to get my business over these years. Even through life changes over this time, Adam changed with me eventually helping to find a new home that my now wife and I are very happy with. The buying and selling process can be somewhat overwhelming but Adam's willingness to answer my numerous questions via email, text or phone was exceptional. His honesty and personal attention makes you feel like his only client and that is special these days. Through some of the challenges Adam always had my interests in mind and he went above and beyond on numerous occasions to ensure success. I hope to be a fun chapter of many in his career book, thank you Adam for your dedication and professionalism!

                        - Brandon G.
                      • Adam knows the Rochester area really well. He is also president of the local MLS. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area, and I look forward to working wi th him in the future.

                        - Chris C.
                      • Adam is simply the best and I know. I already commented above in regards to the extra effort made by Adam, but it also was the small stuff as well. When our home was ready to be listed, he came over to our home the first day to make sure everything was in order and this resulted in our home selling in 9 hours. If it wasn't for him doing this, I don't know if that would have happened. He personally took us around to show us homes in Rochester on multiple occasions and when we found the home we loved, made suggestions to get us more than we could have imagined. Since we purchased a model home, he guided us in the process to get not only the best deal but many additional items added into the home that I would have never expected! This alone saved us thousands of dollars. He is the best realtor and the only one I trust and my family trusts. Q2: These are comments from my prior survey but feel very strongly that Adam Adam Howell needs to be recognized for what he does. He sets the standard in my opinion on what the home selling and buying experience should be like. No matter what time of day, he would answer my questions and was there to help every step of the way. He was willing to meet with us on multiple occasions to help get our home ready to sell and also took time and care to ensure we found the perfect next home! My wife and I couldn't be happier with the service we received from Adam and have recommended him to family and friends. Excellent realtor and always had out best interests in mind.

                        - Jeff & Cindy S.
                      • I came to know Adam Howell through the agent I listed my home with. When my agent went on vacation, he asked Adam to help show me homes. I found Adam to be knowledgeable, prompt, courteous, and responsive. At no point during my purchase process did I have any complaints about the quality of Adam's work. He works diligently for his clients. I highly recommend using Adam Howell as your real estate agent.

                        - Sheila D.
                      • Professional, pleasant, and personable! Adam always makes himself available and works hard for his clients. We researched many agents before choosing Adam, and we were not disappointed with our choice. Adam's use of technology to stay in touch and up to date with us and with new listings was especially helpful to us. We are looking forward to him helping us sell soon.

                        - Natalie D.
                      • We were working with a realtor prior to Adam Howell. After just one day one-on-one we knew the realtor we were paired with wasn't a great match for us. We asked to be reassigned to someone with ; amazing communication skills, someone that enjoys conversation and does not having a sense of urgency in their voice, is personable, knowledgeable, and friendly. What we got with Adam was that and so much more. He sent us a "portal" just to have up-to-date access to homes online. We got updates every evening! We had a great experience and are enjoying our first home. Thank you, Adam!

                        - David & Desiree P.
                      • Coldwell Banker's Buying Agent, Adam Howell, was very knowledgeable and continuously on the look out for our best interest. His exceptional understanding of the market and buying process proved to be invaluable. His efforts contributed to saving us a significant amount of money on our home purchase. In addition to being very professional, he is personable, patient, and easy to work with throughout the whole process. We would & will recommend him to anyone,everyone.

                        - Santiago & Carolyn O.
                      • Adam was very thorough and receptive. He was knowledgeable about the market and individual properties. He was always available by phone or email, and was very patient in answering all of my que stions.

                        - Jennifer Y.
                      • I enjoyed working with Adam and I was quite comfortable with him taking care of my interests. I appreciate his professional attitude, his ability to multi-task and think ahead to get things don e, the way he gives it to you straight when things get a little difficult, but also how he interprets what's going on and shares with you his thoughts which helped me remain calm and positive about the transaction. I really felt I could trust him, and that's important to me. Mostly, he's just a fine man who works hard and that is clearly his best feature. I would recommend Adam to anyone I felt was important to me should they ever need these services.

                        - Jon S.
                      • Being my first home buying experience I had interviewed many potential agents, but wasn't convinced that any were the right fit until meeting with Adam Howell. He is definitely a master at his craft, has the heart of a teacher and very responsive to all my questions! He truly makes the complicated seem simple and we purchased a great home tailored to our needs! If you haven't already done so I encourage YOU to give him a call to discuss your home buying plans. You'll be in great hands!

                        - Jason H.
                      • Adam Howell makes the home buying experience fun and simple! He's been in the industry for over a decade and has a wealth of experience! The combination of his high responsiveness, knowledge tr ansfer, technology usage and negotiating skills made everything fall together perfectly and we purchased the home of our dreams!

                        - Chris H.
                      • Adam Howell is an intelligent, down to earth, professional agent that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a home. He is prompt with his emails, and phone calls along with be well org anized. Stand up guy!

                        - Virginia H.
                      • As buyers we are particularly detail oriented and can get impatient. Adam Howell was so tremendously helpful and on top of things that we didn't even have time to get frustrated or impatient as we may have in past experiences with other agents. He also has an old-fashioned integrity and approach which was not only refreshing but made the experience much less stressful. Outstanding agent. Above and beyond, always available or quickly responsive. Got back with answers and communicated well. Very reliable, friendly, knowledgeable, extremely helpful and willing to go the extra mile.

                        - LS
                      • Adam is the best realtor I've ever worked with. He came prepared to our initial interview very organized and suggested we list our house $24,000 higher than a prominent Rochester competitor. Ou r house sold in 2 days above asking price. Adam answered every phone call and made the entire process seamless. I only wish he could be our agent in every city. You want to pick him!

                        - Julie B.

                        - Virginia H.
                      • I'd like to add this to the recommendation I just sent it..... Even though I was looking for a house in a lower price range Adam gave me quality service and didn't pressure to go above what I w anted to spend.

                        - Jean B.
                      • Adam helped me purchase my first house in 2009 and he was so great to work with. I'm a friend of his mother's and thought I "had" to use Adam. I am so glad his mother was r ight as Adam was fun to work with! He was respectful of my time which I greatly appreciated! He is extremely professional and engaging and really knows his business. Thank you Adam, and thank you Adam's Mom!

                        - J.B.
                      • Adam Howell went out of his way to help us find a great house. He exceeded our expectations at every turn. What a great real estate agent! Adam Howell was outstanding. We bought our first house and he was a huge help. Easy to talk to, responsive to emails and calls. Adam was knowledgeable, friendly, effective. I will sing Adam's praises to anyone who will listen and will definitely refer colleagues and friends to him.

                        - Collin & Clara Z.
                      • My Realtor, Adam walked a very fine line successfully, between optimism and realism about negative issues that could arise. This was a very challenging experience for me personally, so I appreciated his balance between being upbeat and cautionary.

                        - Richard B.
                      • In this world there are few people left you can trust. That said I believe Adam is one of those people. He shot us straight on each and every house we looked at, gave us his opinion on price an d value and just made us feel comfortable during the entire process. It was his personality and calm that got us through the stress of selling and buying a home. We wouldn't hesitate to use Adam again for any real estate needs.

                        - Drew & Nicole S.
                      • We are so thankful for Adam's willingness to represent us as a facilitator and were extremely impressed by his professionalism, timeliness, responsiveness, and just general kindness and charact er through the process.

                        - Katie H.
                      • My experience with agent Adam Howell was truly excellent. He assisted with the purchase of my existing home. Mr. Howell showed multiple options based on my needs. Through the purchase process I was allowed to make changes to my initial requests, Adam adapted and adjusted showings accordingly. This allowed me to make an informed purchase decision, one that allowed me complete satisfaction.

                        - Paul S.
                      • Adam kept us very well informed and in the loop during the negotiations with the offer and counter offers and what needed to be done to close the deal. Everything went well. A very smooth trans action from beginning to end. We were very pleased.

                        - Kevin & Bonnie W.
                      • We have been working with Adam for nearly 10 months now as we search for the right home for us. We chose to work with Adam because he is not pushy, he is knowledgeable yet honestly lets you kn ow when he is unsure. He has helped steer us away from bad investments and now are in a position to purchase the home of our dreams for a reasonable price. Adam has been available to us 24 / 7 since we began working with him and he is prompt with emails and phone calls. He is an exceptional resource for home buyers and I would recommend him to anyone without reservation. Hopefully we are never in a position to be buying another home but if we are, we will be certain to look for Adam to help us.

                        - Venk & Erica B.
                      • Adam put personal effort into being sure the closing of the sale and satisfaction of the buyer, went smoothly. Adam kept us well informed of the process and all communication from Coldwell Bank er was timely and well done. Adam Howell was always very professional. Gratefully, he suggested to the buyer, who initially did not want to look at my sister's property, that since they had some extra time, to look at the condo to confirm that they did not want it. Upon walking into the condo they knew it was exactly what they were looking for. It was Adam's "gentle" suggestion that led to the sale. My sister is elderly and when she met with Adam at the condo so she could "walk it through with him", (even though we had already selected him as our agent, he was very patient, kind, considerate, and most respectful to her. The printed material, photos and newspaper ad, were well done.

                        - D. Schwinghammer
                      • Adam helped me find and purchase my townhome and helped with the sale of my previous home. He is knowledgeable regarding the market, helpful, and honest. He did everything necessary to ensure a ll parts of the transaction went smoothly. He was available when I needed him; he was there every step of the way and made sure I understood the processes well. Mostly, I feel that I can trust Adam completely with my needs, my investment and my feelings. I wouldn't think of doing business with any other realtor.

                        - Diane A.
                      • Adam did a superb job selling my house. I appreciated his knowledge, expertise, organization, and accessibility. He even answered my phone call when he was at a baseball game! I would recommend Adam to anyone buying or selling a house in Rochester!!

                        - Pam V.
                      • Adam was great to work with. He helped us sell our previous house and buy our current house. He had knowledge of market value and what the market was responding to. Selling our house was simple with the quick work of Adam listing our house on all possible sources of media. It sold in 6 days! Adam was also quick to help us find a new house and negotiate a reasonable price. All said and done, we sold and purchased in less than 3 weeks. Adam was quick to respond to all communication and answered all our questions truthfully. I recommend Adam Howell for anyone looking for an honest and efficient realtor. He made our home selling/buying process enjoyable and rewarding.

                        - Rachel R.
                      • Adam is an intelligent easy going agent that did an awesome job finding our dream home. I have recommended Adam to other friends and they have had the same experience.

                        - Ryan & Carrie M.
                      • Adam was extremely helpful in helping me find a house. It took me around couple of months to finalize and Adam showed me several houses during this time and never tried to rush me in making the decision. He is very informative and makes the whole process of buying a house very pleasant and smooth. I would highly recommend Adam to absolutely everyone for the services that he provides. A very genuine, capable and honest person to work with.

                        - Adeel M.
                      • Adam helped me buy my first home back in 2009. I made it very obvious that I had no idea what I was doing, and he took the time to very patiently explain to me the entire process, find out exac tly what my needs/wants were, and guided me through the process in a way he felt was best for my situation. I took his advice on everything such as who to go through for a mortgage, who to use for home inspection, and who to talk to for home insurance. All of his recommendations ended up being the best choice for me. When the time comes to sell my current home and look for something new, he will be the only person I call.

                        - Stephanie F.
                      • We found Adam on the internet when we were searching for a buyer's agent to help us find a house to fit our family, and more importantly to help us with all the "stuff" that we as new home owne rs didn't understand regarding buying a new home. Adam helped us immensely by taking us to look at numerous houses every weekend for at least 3 months. (We were particularly grateful that you could work with us on weekends due to our working schedules.) After walking through several houses with us, Adam discovered what what we were looking for and then he ran across the house in Meadow Park, which we found to be a perfect fit. What really impressed us the most about working with Adam was that he got to know us and was able to point us in the right direction towards a fitting house. Also, we as first time home buyers were quite confused as to how to make an offer and confused with all the paperwork involved, but Adam really helped us figure out the best way to go about making an offer. He was honest and helpful. Thanks, Adam for all your help! We love our home and when we move again in 4 - 5 years, we will be in touch! We will also recommend you to anyone else looking to buy or sell in Rochester!

                      • WE were new to the Jacksonville FL area, our realtor listened to our specific needs and customized our home search. She was recommended to us via our realtor Adam Howell located in Rochester, Minnesota. He assisted us with the sale of our condominium so well, that we worked with Coldwell Banker again.

                        - P & J Sundeen
                      • Adam went above and beyond to provide exceptional professional support through the process of selling the property. He responded to questions or concerns promptly and I always felt I was in good hands. We ended up selling our home for the price we wanted and only 8 days on the market. I couldn't recommend him more highly.
