From its beginnings in 1968, Long & Foster Real Estate has focused on the simple philosophy of being selfless, honest and ethical. As Wes Foster says, “Treat people fairly, and customers will spread the word.” Spread the word they did. Today, Long and Foster Real Estate is the nation’s No. 1 privately owned real estate company, with offices in Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. Throughout the company, the founding traditions continue to guide people home.
It’s that tradition of taking care of people that attracted Heidi Eller to open a Long & Foster Real Estate office earlier this year in Winston-Salem. “Helping people is truly a passion for Wes Foster and the Long & Foster Companies,” Eller says. “Being a part of an organization with strong values has always been important to me. I’ve been fortunate to have had those opportunities in my career. It’s not about what a company says they are, but it’s what they do in their actions that make a company truly special. That’s why I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of the growth of Long & Foster into the Triad. The history and reputation are truly special.”
Since spring, the office has continued to grow, with the addition of real estate professionals and staff that all share the vision and values that Wes Foster began the company with almost 49 years ago. This month, they finished the renovation of their new office space, located at 253 South Stratford Road, where the company will expand to offer a full suite of real estate services, including residential and commercial real estate, mortgage and title insurance, property management and corporate relocation. The Triad is not the only community in North Carolina that is home to Long & Foster. There are Long & Foster Real Estate offices in Wilmington and Elizabeth City. In the Triangle, Long & Foster operates as Fonville Morisey Realty, a long-standing market leader.
“All things real estate” is the business of Long & Foster; but the company is so much more. It is a network of over 11,000 agents and almost 2,000 support staff, united in their passion for real estate. “We are facilitators in connecting people with places to call home. Our company’s annual report says that we are trusted insiders, friends, and neighbors in the communities where we live and work,” Eller states. “We welcome that role and responsibility to connect people to a place that is their home.”
