HannaFinancial. Solving the puzzle of homeownership.

Howard Hanna Puts the Pieces Together

 Pittsburgh, PA (March 25, 2016) – As the nation’s 4th largest real estate company, Howard Hanna Real Estate Services serves tens of thousands of people every year, helping them find the perfect home to buy, but also financing, closing and insuring their new home.

“Ten years ago, the real estate industry began collectively referring to these businesses as core services,” said Mark Steele, president of HannaFinancial.  “To distinguish ourselves from the rest of the industry and better describe the superior level of services we offer, we are rebranding our mortgage, title and insurance businesses as HannaFinancial.”

Howard Hanna formed its mortgage, title and insurance companies over 30 years ago with the intention of offering clients, customers and their agents a comprehensive suite of financial services.  Through Howard Hanna Mortgage Services, Howard Hanna Insurance Services and Barristers Title & Escrow Services, Howard Hanna solves the puzzle of home ownership by putting the pieces of the real estate transaction together  to produce a seamless buying or selling transaction, leading to a high level of customer satisfaction.

“This rebranding highlights the synergistic relationship that our mortgage, title and insurance companies have with the Howard Hanna home buyer or seller and sales associate.  It reminds you that we are all one.  Our sales associates can call me anytime with a question or issue; they can’t do that with most other companies,” added Annie Engel, president of Howard Hanna Insurance.

When Barristers was founded in 1981, the company’s main line of business was title insurance.  In keeping up with market conditions over the past ten years, a short sale division was added along with a cash sale division and a luxury home division to meet customer needs and to make the process as quick and efficient as possible.

Adds Duffy Hanna, president of Barristers, “HannaFinancial accurately represents our businesses and what we have grown to offer the consumer – a suite of financial services to get the real estate transaction financed, insured and closed in the most effective and efficient way.”

The concept of “one stop shopping” has been a proud part of the Hanna philosophy for over 20 years.   Doing business in eight states – PA, OH, NY, VA, MI, WV, NC & MD and with the convenience of hundreds of neighborhood offices, Howard Hanna offers a real estate experience that guides the client through the process from start to finish.  The dedicated teams of professionals at Barristers, Howard Hanna Mortgage and Howard Hanna Insurance work exclusively with Hanna sales associates, ensuring a seamless process.
