Born and raised in Missoula, Montana, Howie grew up enjoying many outdoor activities, especially fishing and camping. In the mid 90s he moved to Dallas where he began his career in electronic manufacturing. After more than a decade in DFW, he decided to step away from the manufacturing industry and move to sunny San Diego with his Beagle, Newman.
In 2009, he caught the entrepreneurial bug and founded a distribution and wholesale company servicing local businesses. He later conceptualized and co-founded Blink Energy Water, a caffeinated flavored water, growing the brand into thousands of stores across 38 states, including retailers: Whole Foods, Central Market, Sprouts, Kroger, Albertsons, Shaws and Jewel.
As much as Howie loved the California sun, in 2014 he decided to return to Dallas. Howie always had an appreciation for aesthetics, real estate, and entrepreneurship so he decided to fuel those passions into a career in real estate sales.
Today, Howie is co-founder of The Burden Reed team with his business partner Nick Burden. Together they focus on investment and real estate development, residential sales and luxury homes. They specialize in new home sales, residential resale and purchase, residential development, lot acquisition, residential investment and off market opportunities.

I lived all over the southwest before I landed in Dallas and now I cannot imagine a better place to call home. As the ninth largest city in the nation, the birthplace of the frozen margarita machine, and the only city to have hosted a World Series game, an NBA Finals game and the Super Bowl in the same year-- Dallas is a pretty incredible place to be!

After spending 8 years as an HR Director for restaurant groups, I have a deep understanding of customer service and an immense appreciation for attention to detail.
