Helping You Get Home

Helping You Get Home


Born and raised in Girard, Ohio, I am a proud life-long resident of Trumbull County and the Mahoning Valley. I love our valley and all of the pieces that make up our corner of Northeast Ohio; from the beautiful gem that is Mill Creek Park, to the expansive shopping available at the Eastwood and Southern Park malls, to the world class Butler Art Museum, and the numerous fairs and ethnic festivals held annually. I believe our area holds something for everyone. We have a rich history full of booms, busts, rust, and revival. It is my goal to honor that history and do my part to help write our next chapter through my career in real estate.

At its heart, my job as a Realtor is simple—but it’s not easy. There is a lot that goes into every real estate transaction, and issues can seem to pop up around every corner. This is why I am here—to see those issues before they happen, or to smooth them out if they do.  For sellers, my job is to market and sell your house. For buyers, it is to find you the house you’ve been searching for. For some clients I will handle both of these tasks. No matter how I am representing a client, my ultimate goal is to guide you through the real estate process, all of its potential snags and complications, and ensure it is an enjoyable experience with the best possible outcome.

Whether you are thinking about buying, selling, or investing in real estate, I will be happy to assist you every step of the way. Please contact me if you have any questions about myself, Howard Hanna, or the services we provide. I look forward to helping you reach your real estate goals.
