Howard Hanna Releases Enhanced Hanna University

Platform Brings Top-Notch Learning to Agents and Employees Across the Organization

Pittsburgh, PA (May 5, 2021) – Howard Hanna Real Estate Services recently released the refreshed Hanna University, a new learning management system that provides educational opportunities to individuals across the organization. With more than 70 courses available upon the March 31 launch, this platform is set to offer timely courses, educational resources, marketing materials, and more to Howard Hanna’s more than 12,000 sales associates and staff members.

Focused on delivering the most up-to-date and relevant training, the new Hanna University caters to both brand-new agents breaking into the industry, as well as more experienced agents who want to continue growing and learning in their careers. The specialized and dynamic platform is the result of months of hard work and partnership with Northpass, a provider of the leading cloud-based learning platform. The proactive development and introduction of this platform puts Howard Hanna a step ahead of market competitors that still utilize a cookie-cutter approach to industry education. 

“We really took advantage of the virtual opportunities that were presented to us in 2020, given our shift to digital during the pandemic,” said Kate LeSueur, Director of Education and project lead for the new Hanna University. “Throughout this six-month initiative, we developed a platform that truly integrates with the lifestyle of our agents – it is modern, motivational, and on-the-go.”

Hanna University is now a one-stop shop for business courses on advanced sales skills, core services, and marketing skills and strategies, as well as a haven for health and wellness courses that encourage agents to find a proper work/life balance. More than 1,000 agents and staff members signed up to attend the launch webinar to learn about the platform. Agents who currently work with Howard Hanna or those who plan to do so in the future can take their personal and professional skills to the next level via the new platform.

“The development and launch of Hanna University has completely enabled our teams to learn, grow, and evolve,” said Karlton Utter, Vice President of Career Development at Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. “This platform gives our agents a competitive advantage in the marketplace and sets them up for future successes.”

Not only does Hanna University benefit Howard Hanna agents, but it is also an advantage for the thousands of clients who do business with the company each year. Top-notch education for agents leads to superior customer experiences for buyers and sellers across the operating region.

“Hanna University will benefit all of our clients – both internal and external – and at the end of the day, we are committed to providing the best customer experience possible,” said Howard W. “Hoby” Hanna, IV, President of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. “Education and experience are two ways to gain an advantage in this market – and we are certainly a step ahead on both.”
