Howard Hauptman, as a native New Yorker living in Manhattan for the past 40 years has a vast knowledge of the city, many of its buildings and the surrounding neighborhoods that they are located in. He has a strong rapport with many landlords and management companies that has been built over many years of professional and successful dealings. Howard is dedicated to making your experience as productive, enjoyable and successful as possible in the least amount of time.
Howard knows the best and quickest way to service a client is to listen to their criteria, utilize his knowledge of the properties, and use various databases available in order to find the best units within the client's criteria.
His strong business and management background helps in any business related issues. As a former executive in the fashion industry for many years, Howard traveled extensively within the U.S. and many countries in Europe, Hong Kong and China. His familiarity with these places and different cultures has helped Howard in finding new homes, both sales and rentals for clients relocating from within the U.S. and also foreign nationals.
We loved working with Howard and recommend him highly. He’s a gentleman, a shrewd and knowledgeable advisor and a strong advocate for his clients. He guided us through all stages of the process in buying our first NYC home and did so with sage advice and warm good humor.Manuso Callaghan
Working with Howard was like being on an extremely high level personal guided tour of New York real estate, building by building, with more detailed knowledge and local history, and better delivery, than a professional entertainer. He turned what could have been a slog into a joyful exploration, expertly steered. Howard quickly understood what we liked and needed, advised us brilliantly, pushed us to consider listings we might not have looked at otherwise and made incredibly productive use of our time. He was on top of all the details and shepherded us flawlessly throughout each stage of the process, from initial offer through board review and closing. Howard has remained in touch with us post-closing to make sure we are settling in well. He will have your back and work tirelessly for you.carolinexfenn
Howard was a big help when we purchased a condo in NYC. He was very accommodating and generous with the time he spent with us from our initial hunt until closing. He's very responsive whenever we have questions. His guidance and knowledge definitely helped us in our final decision. I would highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for a real estate professional.krisyap0320
Howard was our buyer's broker and he was exceptional. No matter what we ask of Howard, he goes out of his way to make sure we have all the information we need and we receive it immediately. His knowledge of the Midtown Real Estate market is exemplary and he provides much more than the required services - way above and beyond the call of duty. Howard has been much more like a partner, not just a broker.Mika XiangGu
Howard helped us find a great condo in a great building and neighborhood! Once we signed the contract, he was tireless in his efforts to make the closing happen asap as I was only in NYC for a set period of time. He was very patient and responsive to all the emails with questions as we were first time buyers. He was the key figure in getting everything done from pushing our unresponsive mortgage broker to getting answers from the building management. He made you feel that he is always on your side and has made the arduous buying process sometimes even enjoyable. We highly recommend Howard. We truly could not have done it without him.miyokomahr
Howard helped us to buy an apartment recently. He is very knowledgeable and really care about our needs. He helped us to visit numerous apartments and provided very valuable and candid advice. He is always accessible and willing to provide extra help.shis3
We met Howard haphazardly, by requesting a viewing online. We hit it off with him immediately. The first place we asked to see was gone by the time we could make an appointment, but Howard had prepared a list of several other possibilities. Thereafter, we met a couple of times a week until we found a great place. Howard was in touch almost every day, about new appointments or status changes to any places we were interested in. His advice during the searching process but especially during negotiations was always right on. We love our new apartment and we feel very lucky to have been able to work with Howard to find it.John McBride
We are recent clients of Howard and could not express strongly enough how grateful and appreciative we are for his help in purchasing the perfect Manhattan apartment! His patience, wisdom, knowledge and guidance as we navigated through the process was appreciated beyond words. We feel so fortunate to have crossed paths early in our venture- luck was certainly on our side when we met Howard and quite honestly we knew it from that very first meeting! He is a consummate gentleman with the integrity to match. As we live out of state and could not get into the city often, Howard went out of his way to scope out potential properties and then narrow down the list to only truly viable options, enabling our weekend trips into Manhattan to be used efficiently, seeing only those places that were true contenders. This was a huge help and allowed us to find the right place much faster. Howard is also easy to talk to and went out his way to make himself available to us, often late in the evening, to accommodate our work schedules and did it with a lovely demeaner - always providing pertinent information and timely answers to our many questions that enabled efficient decision making on our end but was never pushy if we weren't ready to commit to something. Once we did put in an offer on the right place, Howard and his team of seasoned professionals made the purchasing process as easy as possible, guiding us every stop of the way to a successful closing. They are truly top! It was really our honor and privilege to work with Howard. Anchor Associates should feel honored to have such a broker in their midst.jlgabg
I went on a 6 month journey with Howard trying to buy 125 year old apartment held by an estate in a landmark building. You could not ask for a more complicated transaction. Howard lead the transaction with exemplary professionalism and made what could have been a difficult process a great experience for me. He was solutions oriented, positive and insightful when navigating complexity. I not only found a great new apartment, I found a friend! Thank you Howard!beccawrenn
Howard helped us buy our first home, and it was a wonderfully smooth *dare I say painless?* process with his guidance. Not only was Howard super attentive to our needs and wants in a home, but he was also extremely patient with our influx of questions to better understand the process. Being that we were first-time buyers, Howard understood that we were a little unsure of the exact neighborhood we wanted, and made every effort to show us a slew of units in each of our desired areas. After a few rounds of Sundays together, we were able to hone in on the right one, and from the day we stepped foot into what is now our new home, Howard made every effort to keep us calm and informed 'til the end. From initial offer and final negotiations to assembling his stellar team of professionals and putting together the condo board package - we were well taken care of every step of the way. We hope you have the pleasure of working with Howard - you will be in good hands.juliarhault
Howard is the best! We started looking for an apartment in the middle of winter. He was never late and was always pleasant. He dealt with all parties involved professionally and effectively. He knew where to push and where to make concessions. We benefited a lot from his abundant knowledge of the neighborhoods in the city and relied on his experience a great deal in the ever confusing process. I'd recommend Howard to anybody who's looking to buy or sell.tanwen hot
