The list of the 200 most powerful people in the residential real estate industry includes some familiar midstate names.

The top three leaders at Allegheny County-based Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, the largest residential brokerage in the commonwealth, were No. 13 and No. 94 on the Swanepoel Power 200.

Chairman Howard “Hoddy” Hanna III and his sister, CEO Helen Hanna Casey, shared the No. 13 spot. President Howard “Hoby” Hanna IV was No. 94.

Howard Hanna, which has a growing midstate presence, closed more than $18 billion in sales in 2016. The company has more than 270 offices and 8,000 agents spanning eight states. It is the third-largest real estate company in the country.

Casey is No. 2 on the list of top female leaders. The siblings rank in the top three on the list of power brokers who oversee large firms.

Meanwhile, the managing directors at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Homesale Realty in Lancaster County, the midstate’s largest residential firm, came in at No. 106 on the Swanepoel list.

Doug Rebert and Pete Slaugh lead more than 1,100 agents at Homesale Realty, which does more than $2.6 billion in annual sales. 

The co-founders oversaw their firm’s affiliation in 2014 with the then-new Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand.
