Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, the #1 seller of homes in New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, together with Dennis Pezzimenti, Broker/Owner of DBP Realty in Olean, NY, today announced that they have partnered through Howard Hanna's exclusive franchise program.  Howard Hanna has been helping people feel at home since 1957 when Howard and Anne Hanna in Pittsburgh founded the real estate company.  Since then, the company has grown to become the largest real estate company in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and the 3rd largest in the United States. 

According to Dennis Pezzimenti, “This new relationship will provide our buyers and sellers with unique programs and services which are not available from other agencies.  The Howard Hanna franchise program allows us to retain decision-making locally, but gives us an invaluable resource to expand our reach and capabilities for our agents and clients.   Dennis and his team will continue to run the office from its current location at 410 Wayne Street, Olean, NY 14760. 

DBP Realty, now operating as Howard Hanna Professionals, will display Howard Hanna’s green and gold colors at their current location in Olean.  “We anticipate increasing our agent base and staff in the coming months.”, said Pezzimenti.  “Sales associates will immediately be able to offer the Howard Hanna 100% Money Back Guarantee along with all of Howard Hanna’s exclusive programs while benefiting from state-of-the-art marketing tools,training, and technology.” 

Howard Hanna Professionals has also joined forces with the leading Real Estate company in Bradford PA.  Mike DePalma, Owner of Penn Laurel Realty, will be working together with Pezzimenti as both companies expand the services offered to their buyers and sellers.
