Daniel Powell is the Director of Strategic Growth, WNY Region of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services.

As the Director of Strategic Growth, I am involved in various initiatives for Howard Hanna in the Western New York Region which encompass the Cities of Buffalo and Rochester. My responsibilities include but are not limited to Training, Development, Recruitment, and Retention of Real Estate Agents in our region.

Training and Development are both crucial to starting your real estate career and to having a successful real estate business.

I am committed to the recruitment, training, and development of new agents. We teach our new agents how to utilize Howard Hanna’s Superior Tools/Technology to grow and market their business. We also provide an extensive training program designed to give new agents a jump start in their business.

I am also committed to the recruitment, training, development and retention of experienced agents. Utilizing the superior tools/technology and extensive training Howard Hanna offers will give experienced agents the ability to increase their business while reducing risks.  

The Howard Hanna Difference:

Career Seminars – twice a month I conduct career seminars for anyone interested in a career in real estate. One seminar is conducted at our career center in Henrietta, NY the other is conducted at our State Corporate Office in downtown Rochester, NY. These seminars are free to attend.

Fast Start Training – We offer an extensive classroom training program designed to give new agents a solid foundation to build a successful career on. Experienced agents are always encouraged to refresh their skills by taking one of the program modules.
