Built on a tradition of excellence, the company was founded by Howard and Anne Freyvogel Hanna and celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2007.  Today,  three generations continue to provide the highest level of integrity and innovation in the real estate process.

In 1957, with a modest dividend check and a tiny office, the Hannas chose to carve out a business close to their Pittsburgh home. Mr. Hanna had experience working for the homebuilder’s association in Cleveland; his wife had strong roots in Pittsburgh and didn’t want to leave home. With his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in business from the University of Pittsburgh, Mr. Hanna began with a single office in the Shadyside area of Pittsburgh and thus began the business now so well known by its green and yellow logo.

Founded as the Howard Hanna Company, the family business was an integral part of growing up in the Hanna household: Hoddy, the oldest of the three Hanna children started to sell real estate two weeks after high school graduation, continuing his career during each summer when he was home from John Carroll University; Helen received her license just after graduating from college, and was sent to “open” a new North Hills office in the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh; after college and graduate school, Annie, the youngest daughter, went on to take over the much needed business function of forming a consolidated accounting department.

Today, with 167 offices across Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, Michigan, New York, West Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland, Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III, serves as Chairman and CEO; Helen Hanna Casey, President; and Annie Hanna Cestra, Executive VP and Chief Operating Officer ; and third generation, Howard W. “Hoby” Hanna, IV, serves as President of Howard Hanna Ohio.

Howard Hanna Real Estate Services is ranked the 4th largest real estate company in the United States (REALTrends Magazine, May 2011 based on 2010 transactions). The company sold 30,308 homes in 2007, 35,742 in 2008, 35,004 in 2009, 33,954 in 2010, 34,292 in 2011, 41,348 in 2012, and 52,827 in 2013.

Integral to the business of this company are the influences of fair housing, the role of women in the workforce, a changing economy, mobilization, suburbanization and urbanization, technology, and fully being able to service the achievement of the “American Dream” of home ownership.

The full service real estate company offers a spectrum of innovative services, all from one location: Howard Hanna Mortgage Services, Barristers Land Abstract Company for title insurance and closings, Howard Hanna Appraisal, Insurance and Relocation services along with a commercial division, condominium division and land development company.
