Born and raised in Boston, MA, I found myself looking for a new home with my five-year-old after a divorce. We eventually settled in Atlanta, GA, where I set out to find a career that would allow me to be present for my daughter - attending school events and spending quality time together - as family has always been my number one priority. As luck would have it, I was quickly introduced to the real estate world through my mother, an experienced, successful, Top-Producing Realtor. That was the beginning of a rewarding 22-year career where I've helped hundreds of families accomplish their real estate endeavors.
Homeownership is something I achieved once relocating to Georgia. Witnessing first-hand how transitioning into our new home provided comfort for my daughter served as a reminder of how important having an inviting place to call home can be for families and generations alike.
With this at heart, when assisting clients with the sale/purchase or investment in real estate, I always consider their biggest 'WHY' because every client is unique with different personal needs. Our consultations go deep, allowing all parties to trust each other, with any information shared remaining 100% confidential throughout the duration of our partnership. This unique approach has helped many of my clients not only sell properties for record-breaking prices but also find lasting homes to create memories and raise children and grandchildren within its walls while living happily for many years due to finally matching up their WHYs with their ideal home.
Real Estate has many complexities and various ways to approach it depending on the desired outcome. No matter what the scenario, my years of experience has taught me to take a very proactive approach versus a reactive approach which has been recognized by receiving numerous awards, top percentage rankings amongst Top Producing agents in various brokerages, and a board of Realtors - including the Atlanta Realtors Association - as well as, being promoted to positions such as serving as a local Vice President of the Women's Council of Realtors and mentorship for other real estate agents.
For all these accomplishments, I'm filled with an immense feeling of gratitude. They are a representation of all the successes I have been blessed to experience. However, what I'm most proud of is that my business primarily comes from repeat referrals due to always representing my clients' highest and best interests. The trust and confidence that my clients have in me to represent them during their real estate endeavors - both nationally and abroad - has been invaluable and will always remain one of my greatest fulfillment and achievements.
As a multi-generational Realtor, I am passionate about this industry and assisting my clients at the highest level. After all, it's in my blood!
I chose Monique as my realtor because she had a great marketing strategy in order to make sure that the house was seen by a larger market than usual and she wanted to make sure the house was more appealing to viewers. She was very detailed when explaining the strategy and every step of the selling process. I felt like I was in good hands throughout this journey. She was very knowledgeable about the market, price points, and seller habits. I have and will continue to recommend her for future business.

Monique guided me step by step and answered all of my questions to give me peace of mind while making one of the biggest financial decisions of my life. She really got to know me through the process and found the perfect home for my family and I.
I would like to say that it was truly a great experience working with Ms. Monique Howard, I had my home listed with a different realtor and it was on the market for more than three months. I contacted Ms. Howard and explained my situation with my home and the attention and professionalism she displayed, my home was sold within the first week it was on the market .
