Years of experience


With his wife, they have managed to grow Shwiff, Levy & Polo LLP into a respectable brand in tax and business consultancy. Recently, the firm celebrated the anniversary of Radhaus Restaurant, one of Howard’s successful development deals located in Fort Mason, San Francisco, CA.  Prior to moving to San Francisco, Howard managed investments nationwide at the Asset and Portfolio Management level at Johnstown/Consolidated Capital, The Landsing Corporation, and Fox & Carskadon Financial Corp.  In all these firms, he was in C-level management and handled tasks that required a high degree of responsibility. For instance, at Johnstown/Consolidated Capital, he worked as the Senior Vice President in charge of 18 REITS and public limited partnerships with in excess of $1 billion in assets nationwide.  As a Broker Howard founded Shwiff Real  Estate Management Consulting to manage multi-family properties in Atlanta, Georgia, and later built a niche’ brokerage of medical office buildings inside TRI Commercial Real Estate Services and Feher Young and Associates (FYA).  When not handling business deals, Howard enjoys spending time with his wife, who also happens to be his business partner. They are avid sailors and modest philanthropists.  The two met in 1989 through the Jewish Federation & Endowment Fund where they are both members, and the rest, as they say, is history.  Both served on the Board of Hebrew Free Loan where Howard was the Treasurer for a record 9 years.  Together, they have scaled the heights of business and community success, and continue to contribute in helping the overall community grow.
