Chippewa Township – May 1, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, one of the four largest real estate companies in the United States, today announced that it has acquired Frank Stefura Realtors in Beaver County, increasing Hanna’s presence in a growing market the company already leads with 30% of the market share of homes sold.
