About Mike Howard
“I have lived in the Delta for the past 18 years. I moved here in 1990 from San Jose. In 2002 I closed my construction business and went to work for a real estate company in Rio Vista that sold primarily Trilogy homes. I was the first employee of the company and in the beginning I helped the broker build her business. Soon the business grew and new agents joined us and I began to sell properties outside of Trilogy. In 2007 I opened Howard Real Estate.”
