Bedford, PA (July 31, 2020) – Howard Hanna Bardell Realty is expanding to encompass four offices throughout Bedford, Blair, and Somerset counties through a combination of acquisitions, relocations, and opening new branches.
Sean and Meghan Bardell, owners of Howard Hanna Bardell Realty, acquired Geary Real Estate in Somerset, PA early this summer while simultaneously opening a new office in Altoona, PA. Howard Hanna Bardell Realty now owns and operates four offices throughout the region.
The expansion follows five years of double-digit growth for Howard Hanna Bardell, which became the market leader in Bedford County with 30% market share in 2019. The company, which began as an acquisition of Howard Hanna Johnston Realty’s Bedford Office in 2015, completed a full-building renovation and relocation in 2017 and opened a branch office in Everett, PA in 2018. Sean Bardell first joined the company as an appraiser and sales associate at the Howard Hanna Johnston office in 2000.
Sean Bardell, Owner and Managing Broker, said, “We couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to expand into our surrounding counties and communities. I’m grateful to all of our hardworking associates that have helped put us at the forefront of the market. Their knowledge, teamwork, and continued dedication has been vital to our growth. Without the support from our corporate office and franchise division, this also wouldn’t be possible, they are truly second to none. We have big dreams and they help make them become a reality. Together we grow.”
“We are very proud to support the continued growth of Howard Hanna Bardell Realty. Sean and Meghan have been wonderful partners for us in Bedford County for the last 5 years. We have formalized an extended commitment to each other, and look forward to additional growth in their newly expanded footprint and beyond,” said Tom Schoeller, Senior Vice President of Franchising, Mergers & Acquisitions at Howard Hanna.
