National Real Estate Rankings Released

Howard Hanna Ranks in Top Four in the Nation

Pittsburgh, PA (April 2, 2015) – Howard Hanna Real Estate Services continued its rank as the 4th largest real estate organization in America in home sales in 2014.  This is the seventh consecutive year the company has ranked in the top four, revealing the steady success plan of the family owned and operated company.  The rankings are based on the number of closed transaction sides by the company last year.

Howard Hanna recorded 47,743 closed sides in 2014 with a sales volume of $9.3 billion, a 2% increase over 2013.

The national rankings are compiled by REAL Trends in their annual REAL Trends 500 survey and by RIS Media in their annual Power Broker Report.

The Real Trends 500, now in its 28th year, and RIS Media’s Power Broker Report, now in its 27th year, remain undisputed leaders in ranking the performance of residential real estate firms.

“2014 was a remarkable year for real estate in our region and our company,” said chairman and CEO Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III. “But I look for 2015 to be an even better year.  We are focused on providing innovative solutions to all consumer groups, from millenials to baby boomers, when looking for a home, buying a home or selling a home.  Their satisfaction, and how to best serve these demographic segments, is a big focus of sales associate and management training and coaching this year.  We are also excited about some technology advancements coming soon that will give us a marketing advantage and a new mortgage program from Howard Hanna Mortgage Services for first-time buyers.”

In addition to being the 4th largest real estate company in the United States, Howard Hanna is the #1 home seller in Pennsylvania and Ohio.  The full-service company provides residential and commercial brokerage services, mortgages, closing and title insurance, land development services, appraisal services, insurance services, corporate relocation services and property management.  With 173 offices across the eight states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, Michigan, New York, West Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland, Howard Hanna’s more than 6,200 sales associates and staff are guided by a spirit of integrity in all aspects of the real estate process.
