Our innovative approach to Real Estate Franchising is different by design. We provide seamless access to the tools, systems and support that has helped us grow to become the leading family owned real estate brokerage business in the nation.

Howard Hanna Real Estate Services is nationally recognized as a family owned and operated brokerage leader in American real estate. Established in 1957, we’ve worked tirelessly to develop innovative, consumer centric real estate marketing and sales tools, exclusive service offerings and nationally acclaimed training and learning programs for agents to bring more sellers and buyers together for a satisfying and successful selling and buying experience.

As the largest family-owned real estate company in America, Howard Hanna focuses on and is dedicated to a comprehensive understanding of the markets we serve throughout the Eastern, Midwestern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.

We believe in being committed members of the communities we serve. In addition to donating nearly 6,000 Coats for Kids in 2021, Howard Hanna pioneered annual charity fundraising events company-wide that have resulted in contributing over $19 million to the Children’s Free Care Fund serving children’s hospitals throughout our service area. We welcome you to join us in support of children and families in your community.
