Helen Hanna Casey, president of Howard Hanna, was interviewed for the RISMedia Power Broker report.  “2015 was a great year and 2016 is off to an incredible start, and it looks to continue in the coming months,” noted Casey.  “High rents and low interest rates will continue to drive the first-time buyers’ market, while slight increases in inventory will give momentum to move-up buyers.”
