Real estate professional brings over 10 years of sales, management experience

Long & Foster Real Estate has named Dave King as the new managing broker of its Leesburg and Purcellville, Va., offices. King brings over a decade of real estate sales and management experience, as well as a background in the aerospace industry, to his new leadership position. Long & Foster is the No. 1 family-owned residential real estate company in the United States.

Most recently, King served as the sales manager at Long & Foster’s Reston/North Hills office, working alongside Branch Manager Anita Lasansky. In that role, he helped the office’s over 100 real estate agents to improve their business development efforts and better serve their clients. Prior to joining the Reston team as its sales manager, King built a successful real estate sales business, helping buyers and sellers throughout the Northern Virginia area. He also consistently ranked among Long & Foster’s top agents in the Northern Virginia/West Virginia region.

“It’s a tremendous opportunity for me to lead the teams of distinguished agents at Long & Foster’s Leesburg and Purcellville offices, and I look forward to helping these real estate professionals to achieve even greater success in the business,” King said. “While I’ll miss working with our staff and real estate agents in the Reston/North Hills office, I’m certain we’ll collaborate on joint endeavors in the future, which will benefit our entire region.”

Before entering the real estate business, King had a nearly 20-year career in the international aerospace industry. That experience helped him to grow as a leader and develop strategic problem-solving skills, as well as a passion for delivering excellence in customer service. King will rely on those abilities, along with his experience in real estate, as the new manager in Leesburg and Purcellville.

“Supporting today’s real estate sales professionals takes a highly knowledgeable, experienced leader,” said Boomer Foster, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “We are confident that adding Dave to the Long & Foster leadership team will result in the synergy that our agents thrive on. This is how our company has continued to help local buyers and sellers meet their homeownership goals for more than 45 years.”
