National and Global Real Estate Connections
Real estate is local, and that is why independent, locally branded firms like Long & Foster continue to dominate most markets. Yet there is also tremendous value to having relationships with brokerages around the country and the world, and that is why we maintain partnerships with national and global networks, ensuring our Long & Foster agents are connected with expert real estate teams far beyond our local areas.
