“I’m honored to be recognized as part of the Top 40 Women Executives in the industry. My commitment in 2021, as in years past, is to lead Howard Hanna Real Estate Services in a way that honors our family’s traditions while transforming the real estate experience to benefit the modern homeowner,” said Casey.

Howard Hanna leadership also ranked highly on the main SP 200 list, which ranks the 200 most powerful and influential executives and leaders in the residential real estate brokerage industry.

On this list, second-generation leaders Helen Hanna Casey and Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III, Chairman of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, are ranked the 11th most powerful leaders in the industry. Howard W. “Hoby” Hanna, IV, President, ranks 40th on the SP 200 as the third-generation executive who runs the real estate brokerage operations of the company.

Pat Riley, President and CEO of Allen Tate Companies, ranks 103 on the 2021 list. Acquired by Howard Hanna in 2018, Allen Tate Companies is the Carolinas’ largest real estate brokerage.

“We’re honored to be recognized again by this annual ranking publication, and very pleased with the impact that Howard Hanna Real Estate Services and its real estate agents have had throughout our market areas,” said Casey.

“Because these rankings are based on our influence, the power of the Howard Hanna brand, and the impact our sales associates and staff have, we are especially pleased by these rankings. The list doesn’t just measure sales units or volume, but the actual value we bring to the communities we serve,” said Hoby Hanna.

“The placements on the 2021 list are an honor that reflect how multi-generational leadership and influence have benefitted Howard Hanna. The multiple rankings exemplify the vision that we have: the real estate industry sees us moving forward, not just resting on what we are today,” added Hoddy Hanna.
