Howard Hanna Real Estate Services has partnered with The F.C. Tucker Company to combine the best of both companies to “create even stronger organizations for the benefit of agents and clients alike.”
“We are beyond excited to welcome the F.C. Tucker Company to the Howard Hanna family of businesses,” said Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III, chairman of Hanna Holdings, Inc. “Through the years, we have admired this company and their leadership—and as wonderful as our legacy companies are, I believe that by working together the future is even brighter.”
“We are taking a step toward F.C. Tucker’s future by fulfilling our long-term strategic plan to grow the company and solidify our status as the dominant real estate firm in Indiana by forming this unique partnership with Howard Hanna,” said Jim Litten, CEO of F.C. Tucker Company. “The best part of this alliance is that it is a true partnership where F.C. Tucker agents and clients benefit from the vast resources of a prominent national real estate brokerage.”
F.C. Tucker will continue to operate under its current name and the current F.C. Tucker executive team of Litten, Patrick Purdue, president, and Donna Kreps, president of Residential Real Estate Services, will continue to lead the Indiana operations.
“Our commitment to technological evolution continues to be the differentiator for Howard Hanna,” said Howard W. “Hoby” Hanna, IV, president of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. “Our technology and innovative sales programs, coupled with the ability to offer mortgage, title, and insurance services, will allow Howard Hanna to power the already great F.C. Tucker Company.”
“Multiple cultural and operational synergies were critical in the development of this partnership,” said Purdue. “Both companies have a legacy of family and local ownership and a similar set of values and culture, making this alliance a natural progression for both organizations.”
“We understand family companies—because we are a family in every sense of the word,” said Helen Hanna Casey, chief executive officer of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. “It doesn’t matter if you are related or if you’ve joined the family as an agent or employee, we value our people and their contributions each day—and we look forward to bringing together the families of Howard Hanna and F.C. Tucker.”
“We have incredible agents, staff and leaders throughout F.C. Tucker, and this partnership will allow both companies to share best practices, resources and new opportunities,” said Kreps. “Partnering with Howard Hanna and gaining access to their resources and geographic reach is a vital step in the long-term growth of our company.”
