Howard Hanna Real Estate Services boosted closed sales volume by 37 percent in 2013, to $9.7 billion, with agents representing buyers or sellers in 52,827 transactions, a 28 percent increase from the year before. Much of the surge was due to the company’s ongoing efforts to expand its reach in Virginia and Michigan, the Pittsburgh Business Times’ Tim Schooley reports.

Last month, Howard Hanna acquired Virginia-based brokerage William E. Wood and Associates, Realtors, adding nearly 700 agents and 17 offices in Virginia and North Carolina.

In October, the O’Hara, Pa.-based firm gained access to the Maryland market with the acquisition of Morgan-Collins Inc., which has more than 50 agents in offices in York and Shrewsbury, Pa., north of Baltimore. Source:
