Hello future homeowners my name is Howard Shelf II and I am the owner and broker of HOWARD SHELF & ASSOCIATES REALTORS. My father, Dr Shelf, started our real estate company in 1978. I have been a broker in the real estate industry since 1984. At age six, my father would dress me up in a suit and take me with him to his real estate appointments. He had instilled me to always provide the best service to clients. A strong tradition of client referrals has been established because of past clients.
