BIRMINGHAM, MI - Oakland County-based Cranbrook Realtors is joining Howard Hanna Real Estate Services in a move officials said positions the expanding organizations to tap growth in the Michigan real estate market.
Clients and agents of Cranbrook Realtors, which has offices in Birmingham and Franklin, will now have access to Howard Hanna's marketing tools and business resources, the companies said in a joint statement.
"As the real estate industry continues to evolve and change, it was clear to me that the integrity, family values and innovative technology of Howard Hanna was the right direction for Cranbrook Realtors," said Mitch Wolf, owner and broker at Cranbrook Realtors, in the statement.
The family-owned and operated Howard Hanna Real Estate Services was created in 1957 and is one of the largest real estate companies in the country.
It expanded to Michigan in 2012, including an office in Ann Arbor, and officials said the recent acquisition of Cranbrook Realtors will continue that growth across the state.
"The market here is experiencing unprecedented growth, and this partnership makes sense so that we can better serve our customers and agents in the area. We are excited about what this means for the company's future in this region," said Howard W. "Hoby" Hanna, IV, in the statement.
Howard Hanna Real Estate Services employs more than 6,000 people throughout the United States.
Kristine Burdick, president of Howard Hanna Midwest, said the two companies joining together creates a synergy in the markets both serve.
"Our partnership together, and the professionalism and expertise of our great Birmingham and Franklin sales associates will continue to be the strength that consumers will see when choosing a company to work with for all their real estate needs," Burdick said in the statement.
Clients and agents of Cranbrook Realtors can now use Howard Hanna programs like the 100% Money Back Guarantee and Homes of Distinction, which markets luxury homes.
