NH Conservation


NH Conservation Real Estate was born from a love of the land and a commitment to both sharing it and preserving it in meaningful ways. In his work with NH Conservation Real Estate, principal broker Tom Howard strives to connect buyers and sellers with like-minded people and to help his clients achieve their land conservation goals.

Tom’s ties to New Hampshire began with summers spent here during his formative childhood and adolescent years. He came to conservation real estate and its focus on special properties with valuable natural resources from a background that has included a lifelong love of the outdoors and work in recreation and parks management, real estate brokerage, and with land conservation organizations.

Since founding NH Conservation Real Estate in 2002, Tom has built upon his experiences. In 2015 Tom earned the designation of Accredited Land Consultant, and he is the only real estate broker in New Hampshire to hold this prestigious certification.

Although the foundation of the business is working with private landowners, Tom has also collaborated extensively with well-known conservation organizations and government entities throughout New Hampshire to craft real estate transactions that feature meaningful conservation outcomes.

Whether he is working with landowners seeking prospective new owners who share their love of the land, buyers in search of special property, or clients interested in conserving a piece of cherished land, Tom is adept at maneuvering through complex real estate and conservation projects

NH Conservation Real Estate also directly supports the conservation community throughout New Hampshire through regular contributions to the organizations with which we work each year. Most notably, our business is a major sponsor of the annual Saving Special Places statewide conference.
