A highlight of the rallies for Chairman and CEO Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III is the opportunity to honor all the hard work done in the previous year. “Thanks to our agents, 2015 was one of the best years we’ve had in the history of the company. This momentum will spill over into 2016, led by the pent-up demand for housing and home ownership from numerous home buying segments. We look forward, in our rallies, to giving our sales team the support that they need to meet this demand.”

Among the most coveted of the awards given at the regional rallies are the “Best of the Best” and “Very Best of the Best.” These go to the top 1% of producing agents in the company, who not only receive recognition for their hard work but also a gift chosen personally by the Hanna family. In previous years, the gifts have been special green Tumi luggage and Shinola watches.

In addition to the awards, the executive committee presents results from the previous year and predictions for the coming year. Through the dedication of the Howard Hanna Sales Team, the company increased listing volume by nine percent, sales rate by 14 percent and mortgage volume by 20 percent for 2015 over 2014.
