Howard Hanna Moves Up in Rankings of the Top Residential Real Estate Brokerage Firms across America

Howard Hanna Real Estate Services has moved up in the national rankings of residential real estate firms and now ranks as the 3rd largest company in the United States, based on total transaction sides closed last year.  The family-owned and operated company recorded 90,016 closed transactions sides, up 45.9% over the year before.

The new rankings were published in the annual REAL Trends 500, a list of the top real estate brokerages distributed by REAL Trends, Inc., a leading source of statistical analysis for the residential real estate industry, and in RISMedia’s annual Power Broker Report, both of which were released earlier this week.

“2016 was a record year at Howard Hanna spearheaded by organic internal growth and acquisitions.  In fact, Howard Hanna Realtors individually out performed our competitors’ agents by 18%.  The results can be attributed to the overall hard work, dedication and pride in performance of our more than 9,000 colleagues in eight states,” said Chairman Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III.

Howard Hanna advanced in the rankings of closed sales volume ranking as well, moving from 7th to 5th largest in the United States, with closed sales volume of $16.8 billion last year, an increase of 39.6% over the year before.

The company’s year-to-year increases in closed transactions and closed volume were the highest among the residential real estate firms ranked.

    “What a great honor and privilege to be a part of such a great company and great team of people!” Truly, changing America . One Home at a Time, One Family, One Dream at a time! There should be a “time capsule” for the future generations of how the company forges towards the future like the Industrialist time of America did… without steel no strength, without determination, no goals, without hard work and discipline… no Dreams. I love this company! Congrats on climbing the recognition of people’s dreams (please include me in that)! 🙂
