RISMEDIA, May 1, 2007-Howard Hanna Real Estate Services has affiliated with Heritage Real Estate Associates, Inc. in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, giving Howard Hanna a long awaited presence in that part of their home state. This makes the 120th office for the Pittsburgh based Howard Hanna, the country's 5th largest full-service and the 4th largest independent real estate company.
On hand for the occasion were Keith W. Griffith, broker/owner of Howard Hanna Heritage Real Estate and Howard W. "Hoddy" Hanna, III, chairman and CEO of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services.
After the announcement, Keith Griffith commented, "As a market leader in the Johnstown area for almost 30 years, we have been offered every major franchise opportunity that has entered our market, but respectfully declined. With Howard Hanna, we felt we found our match. Not only do they share our priorities, but their concept of ‘branchising' allows for us to continue to be independently owned, yet we now have the opportunity to offer our customers Howard Hanna's unique programs/services and network with more than 119 Hanna offices and their agents, which will actually allow for improved service to buyers and sellers."
The recent affiliation with Howard Hanna brings Heritage Real Estate the opportunity to offer buyers and sellers the exclusive Howard Hanna 100% Money back Guarantee. If for any reason a buyer of a Howard Hanna Heritage Real Estate listing is not satisfied with the home, up to one year after the purchase, Howard Hanna Heritage Real Estate will buy it back for 100% of the purchase price. There is no cost to the seller to feature their home with this guarantee. In addition, Howard Hanna Heritage Real Estate will now feature their listings on Howard Hanna's award winning Web site, www.howardhanna.com, which receives more than three million views per month, according to the company. The user-friendly site provides immediate and detailed descriptions and photos of all Howard Hanna listings along all other listings in the search area.
The Howard Hanna Sunday Showcase of Homes TV show airs on four network TV stations reaching potential buyers via one of the strongest advertising vehicles. The Howard Hanna relocation network, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, will enable Howard Hanna Heritage Real Estate to offer professional assistance to buyers and sellers throughout the United States.
The new Howard Hanna Heritage Real Estate includes 17 associates and staff, including broker/owner, Keith Griffith. Long involved with many local charities and organizations (First Commonwealth Bank, Slovenian Savings and Loan, Johnstown Chamber of Commerce, Cambria Residential Services, Beginnings, Johnstown Community Concert Society, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, AYSO Soccer, Moxham Renaissance and Roxbury Bandshell Preservation Alliance), Keith, his associates and Howard Hanna Heritage are truly community connected, but now also connect to 119 other Howard Hanna offices in the four state area of PA, OH, NY and WV.
