Howard Hanna Brecksville Office Welcomes New Manager

Cleveland, OH (August 1st, 2016) – Howard Hanna Real Estate Services is pleased to announce that Bill Butler has moved from the Gates Mills office and will now be managing the Brecksville office. Both offices are in the East Region of the company, which includes over 475 sales associates located in 10 offices.

In 2009, Butler moved from working as an industrial designer and a sales and marketing manager to a career in real estate. The following year, he was given the Howard Hanna “Rookie of the Year” award while working out of the Chagrin Falls office. Three years later, he was promoted to manager of the Gates Mills office. In the past, he has volunteered with the American Red Cross, Arthritis Foundation, and Achievement Centers for Children.

“I am grateful for this opportunity and very excited to help coach and grow the already very successful agents in the Brecksville office,” said Butler. “I will greatly miss the incredible agents in the Gates Mills office, but I’m thankful for everything I’ve gained from being around such a wonderful group of people.”

Leah Gibbons, Vice President and East Regional Sales Manager, is thrilled to have Butler bring the knowledge and skills that he used successfully in Gates Mills to another office. “We are excited to have Bill in this new role in the Brecksville/Broadview Heights office and are confident that he will continue to lead our team of real estate professionals to even greater success within the marketplace.”

Executive Vice President and Ohio General Manager Kristine Burdick is also looking forward to what Butler brings to the Brecksville/Broadview Heights office. “We are pleased to have Bill join and lead our Brecksville team as we continue to be the market leader. Bill brings with him great experience and a true dedication to our industry,” she said.
