Howard Hanna leaders also honored

Allen Tate Companies President Gary Scott has been named to the Swanepoel Power 200 for 2024, an annual list of real estate’s most powerful and influential executives and leaders in the real estate brokerage industry.

Scott is ranked No. 144 among the top 200 real estate executives. He was previously named to the Swanepoel Power 200 for 2022.

Three leaders from Allen Tate parent company Howard Hanna Real Estate were also recognized. They include Howard “Hoby” Hanna IV, CEO, Howard Hanna Real Estate Services and Helen Hanna Casey, CEO, Hanna Holdings, Inc., ranked at No. 9, and Kristine “Kris” Burdick, president of brokerage for Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, ranked at No. 126.

The SP 200 is compiled and published annually by T3 Sixty, the residential real estate brokerage industry’s leading management consulting and research firm.

The evaluation process involves months of quantitative and qualitative assessments to review leaders, including the size and importance of the companies they lead, their place in their company’s org chart, and their personal influence within the industry.

“We’re thrilled to have leaders from across our organization recognized on the list,” said Hoby Hanna. “The annual recognition is a testament to the impressive leadership we have across the Hanna Family of Companies.”

Scott oversees residential real estate operations, strategic market growth and expansion and agent recruiting for the company’s seven-region footprint in the Carolinas. He has more than 35 years of experience in the real estate industry and has held positions with multiple brokerage firms covering the mid-Atlantic region from New York to the Carolinas, including B. Gary Scott Realtors, Prudential Preferred Properties, Patterson Schwartz, and Long & Foster® Real Estate.

Scott served as general sales manager and senior vice president of Allen Tate Realtors from 1998-2010, and returned to lead the company in his current role in November 2021.
