Jan. 23, 2012 - PRLog -- Howard Hanna Real Estate Services’ CEO Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III today announced his company’s arrival in the Columbus, Ohio real estate market.  “We are very excited about our newest office in Ohio’s state capital city and our new affiliation with the high quality and innovative RealCom Realty of Dublin along with our new partners Marilu Sochor, Bob Sochor and Steve Lenker. Two great companies have come together to form Howard Hanna RealCom Realty.”

‘The Columbus market has been on our radar screen for some time. We are proud to now be a part of the growing real estate community here,” added Howard W. ‘Hoby’ Hanna, IV, President of Howard Hanna Ohio. “This real estate market continues to get better–December was the 6th consecutive month of increased home sales as sellers realistically priced their homes to sell and buyers responded –add to that mortgage interest rates remaining at historical lows and it is a growing market. This is the next logical place for us to be.  While it is our first office in Central Ohio, we have 50-plus offices in Northeast Ohio and more than 2,300 sales associates.”

“We expect to have two more new locations in Columbus within the next 12 to 15 months,” added Hanna IV.

This makes the 134th office for Howard Hanna, the #1 home seller in Ohio and Pennsylvania, and the 4th largest real estate company in the United States.  In 2011, the company listed 29,623 homes for sale with a volume of $6 billion and sold 32,747 homes with of volume $5.5billion.

Howard Hanna’s new office, Howard Hanna RealCom Realty, is located at 6179 Memorial Drive, Muirfield Square, in Dublin.  

“I am absolutely thrilled and excited to be part of the Hanna family,” said Marilu Sochor.
In the real estate business in Columbus for more than 20 years with all of the major national companies -ReMax, Real Living HER, Coldwell Banker, she was feeling that what was out there lacked real customer service and caring; in 2009 she started her own company, RealCom Realty, in Dublin.  As RealCom continued to grow by ‘getting back to the basics’, she found that the strong regional and still privately held Howard Hanna Company, did it better than anyone.  “In joining Howard Hanna, we are now part of a family, not just a number,” she added.
