Pre-licensing programs are given by the Long & Foster Institute of Real Estate, Foster Real Estate School and by many degree-granting institutions and community colleges. These programs cover all the technical aspects of real estate - math, law, and theory.
It is highly recommended you take the State Exam Review class before the state licensing examination. We offer this course each month and it consists of eight or twelve class hours of intensive review; or you may choose a computer-based review. Call our Training Center at 1-866-WORK LNF, for schedules and locations.
Once you pass the Principles Course and the MD, VA, DE, PA, DE or DC examination, you must affiliate with a real estate brokerage firm (such as Long & Foster) in order to have your license activated. If you are unsure of what you wish to do and you want time to consider your options, you may choose to consider Metro Referrals. It offers an alternative to becoming a licensed agent that allows you to keep your license active, referring potential buyers and sellers to an actively selling agent and collect a referral fee. Should you choose to affiliate with Long & Foster, you will join our post-license training program, Star builders®, which will teach you the practical aspects of listing and selling properties. Following our classroom and field training, you will be fully prepared to launch a successful real estate career.
If you have further questions, please call our registrar at 1-866-WORK LNF, or any of our branch sales managers.

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.
