Real Estate Training + Networking Equal Success

Long & Foster invests in your career with educational and networking opportunities, from pre-licensing all the way through your life’s work. We’re here for you when you start your career and there for you when you’re ready to step back from real estate, even helping you sell your business to another successful Long & Foster agent. Everything we offer—from training to networking—is with the goal of helping you reach your full potential.

“Why have I stayed with Long & Foster? So many reasons. Everything an agent wants to learn, we teach. We have a great office culture, great chemistry, and a true sense of love emanates from Wes. And it’s not just Wes. The respect flows from management to agents."
