I made a decision to reach out to Long & Foster, with support of Chuck Jenkins. My intervew with Alice was very informative about the Long & Foster heritage and opportunity.
Being L&F for 30 days and licensed for 2 weeks, I now know I made the right decision. The overwhelming support from the office staff, Alice & the L&F community has given me the fast start I was looking for.
Star Builders is an excellent training program and I look forward to participating in future SB classes. The entire L&F and RAR community has ben a joy to work with.
I prepared for my examinations by taking my classroom Principles course through L& F. Vicky did an excellent job preparing us to pass the testing. I completed the course on a Monday afternoon and passed the PSI exam the following morning. My career has been a little unique in the few short months I have been in real estate. I have had a few differnent L&F brokers as there were a few changes happening in the Richmond area offices. I am currently in the Hanover office working for Alice Limroth. She is a wealth of knowledge and provides phenomenal training. She is supportive of her agents and growing our office. I can't wait to see how our office and my career grows under Alice's leadership. There are many good things to come to Hanover!
From Brenda Van Fossen to Bobbie Holman:
I am happy that I made the move to Long & Foster. The "atmosphere" is positive. Real estate is not an easy profession and the work environment is very important. I am abe to ask you questions directly when I have issues where I don't know the answer. I feel that you and Long & Foster want me to succeed and I appreciate your promoting me - for example, with the publication of the awards from last year and the Realtor Spotlight. I also appreciate having an admin who is very positive and wants to help me with whatever I need. The Lunch & Learns are great as well as the training from Mitch, Dan and other Long & Foster employees.
