On April 30, 2013, CEO Hoddy Hanna announced that Howard Hanna Real Estate Services had acquired Frank Stefura Realtors in Beaver County, Chippewa, PA. This increased our presence in a growing market the company already leads with 30% of the market share of homes sold in beaver County. Located in a great location on Darlington Road in Chippewa Township, Stefura Realtors now operates under the Howard Hanna brand.
A powerhouse within Beaver County, Stefura Realtors was led by Frank Stefura, who has been in the real estate business for more than three decades. “I wanted to make sure my people will be well taken care of,” said Stefura. “Howard Hanna is a family-owned operation with upper management who understands the needs of real estate agents.” Stefura is staying on and going back to what he loves most, listing and selling homes.
“Frank and his team of professional sales associates have helped many local home buyers and sellers over the years. We are very proud he chose Howard Hanna to carry on the reputation of excellence they have established in Beaver County,” said CEO Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III. “Together, we will strive to continue meeting all of our clients’ needs when it comes to buying and selling real estate.”
Howard Hanna has been doing business in Beaver County since 1995, when it acquired Dishler Realty. The acquisition of Stefura Realtors makes two locations for the firm in Beaver County. Howard Hanna’s Beaver office is located at 1601 Third Street in the county seat and is managed by Mary Demas, who will now manage both the Beaver and Chippewa offices.

Beginning Wednesday, May 22nd in PA and Thursday, May 23rd in OH and MI, Howard Hanna offers seasonal open house Twilight Tours on the third Wednesday and Thursday of the month, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., through September.
The unique Twilight Tours were created to be an alternative to Sunday afternoon, the traditional time when buyers visit open houses. Bringing together buyers and sellers in a different way, these tours offer an opportunity to avoid the “weekend crunch” of typical open houses.
Each month, Howard Hanna offices focus on specific communities and neighborhoods to offer a cluster of homes near each other, making it easier to see many homes in a short amount of time.. Click here to see all of our Twilight Tours.

For the past few years, the WVIZ/PBS annual Televised Auction featured Howard Hanna Real Estate Services as a sponsor. This year, in addition to the usual Howard Hanna sponsorship, Hoby was invited to be a guest auctioneer.
This event is a fun and exciting live television program that attracts an audience of all ages throughout the Northeastern Ohio viewing area. The auction is kicked off yearly by the WVIZ zebra, well-known by fans of the WVIZ/PBS Televised Auction. What follows are guest auctioneers, such as Hoby, who help to raise money for WVIZ/PBS by presenting auction items on live television.
“We are always pleased to take an active role in the community,” said Hoby. “Howard Hanna has been sponsoring the Televised Auction for years, and I was privileged to be involved this year as a guest auctioneer. It is my hope that this is the beginning of a new spring tradition.”
Nearly 4,000 items were gathered for donation during the yearly auction. Through the help of Hoby and other volunteers, $480,727 was raised during the four-day event. The money helps to support the station’s mission to “strengthen communities by providing distinctive, thought-provoking programs and services that enlighten, inspire, educate and entertain.”

As we are continually trying to increase our sphere of influence and the number of people we interact and engage with on social media, there are bound to be a few annoying people in your Facebook news feed that really get on your nerves.
They could be the classic 'over-poster' who updates their status a million times a day about every minute detail and activity in their life, 'Mr. Innappropriate' who posts some not-so-safe-for-work updates or 'Joe Politician' who has a strong and offensive post about every political, religious or cultural event that happens.
There are a million of these characters on Facebook, and while you can learn what not to do on social media from these best-practice offenders, you may be saying to yourself, "I wish I didn't have to see all of these updates." Well, you are in luck. With a couple quick steps, you can never see another update from these people again.
1) Hide a single post
You can hide a single post right from your timeline. In the top right corner of every post, there is a small arrow. If you click this arrow, you will get a drop down list. Click hide and this post is now removed from your timeline.
2) Hide all posts
Let's say this person is a constant offender of social media etiquette and you never want to see another post from them again. There are two ways to accomplish this. The first method is to do this via the Timeline. After you complete step 1 above, you will see a new message. You can then hide all stories (from a page). If it is a person, you can change what updates you will see, as below. You can select what updates you want to receive or go to the bottom and hit unfollow. You will never see another update from this person again and you can change this back at any time.To answer your questions, this person will not see that you did this, and yes, you will still stay connected with this person. They will continue to see your posts, and you will be Facebook friends with this person, but without those irritating status updates.
