Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, a leading seller of homes in Pennsylvania and Ohio, has announced a merger with Morgan-Collins, Inc., increasing Howard Hanna’s presence in Central Pennsylvania. The company has offices in Harrisburg, Camp Hill, Carlisle and Hershey. This move puts Howard Hanna in position to do business for the first time in the state of Maryland, in addition to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, New York and West Virginia, where the company has 150 offices.
Howard Hanna has been helping people feel at home since 1957, when the real estate company was founded by Howard and Anne Hanna in Pittsburgh. In 1997, Howard Hanna opened their first offices in Harrisburg. The Morgan family started their company in the late 1940s and sold it in 1990 to Andy Collins. “It was important to Joe and Jim Morgan that the firm remains a family-owned business,” said Collins. “And I’m carrying on that tradition. The family-owned Hanna company is the perfect fit for my agents and our clients. I am looking forward to being able to provide all the extras a big firm offers while still offering that personal touch.”
“To be the consumer’s choice in Central Pennsylvania is our goal,” said CEO Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III. “We are very proud to welcome Andy and his team of more than 50 professional sales associates, who have helped many local home buyers and sellers over the years, to the Howard Hanna family. Together we will do great things and carry on the reputation of excellence they have established in York and Adams Counties.”
The addition of Morgan-Collins continues Howard Hanna’s growth plan in the Eastern United States; this is the company’s third acquisition of the year.
