Howard Hanna Franchisees visit Cleveland

More than 50 real estate leaders attend an educational mini-convention in Northeastern Ohio

Cleveland, OH (June 16, 2015) – Last month, Howard Hanna Real Estate hosted franchisees from across the company’s market areas. In attendance were more than 50 broker/owners, managers and staff to learn about cutting-edge marketing, highest and best use of Hanna technology, and managing the increased number of leads and the latest in innovative Hanna recruiting and growth strategies for franchise owners. In addition to the training, the event coincided with the Hanna Commercial grand opening, and attendees were invited to attend the event visiting the new space in the heart of downtown Cleveland.

Judy Porpiglia, Manager of the Howard Hanna Holt Jamestown office, found the information presented to be useful. “I loved the meeting, it was so helpful and appreciated. The data and information were wonderful, and it was so nice to hear straight from the owners,” she said. “The classes, presenters, tours and even the dinner were all great. It made us happy to be a part of the Hanna family.”

Peggy Kinter, Broker/Owner of the Howard Hanna Chestnut Ridge Blairsville office, was happy to be included in the meeting. “Kevin Patai, Shannon Barr, Jackie Cassara, Ron Dishler, Tom Simon and Steve Holt were all top notch! This was the best meeting we’ve had so far, and the awards were really a nice touch. Hoby should be commended on assembling a group of presenters so knowledgeable and especially for the team atmosphere conveyed.”

Robin Viola, Broker/Owner of the Howard Hanna Mortimer Weirton office, appreciated networking with her colleagues. “All the presenters were informative and energetic. I enjoyed listening to the office managers and their ideas. I really appreciated the opportunity for us all to get together.”
