Long & Foster Real Estate welcomes Ericka Baum to its Cape Charles, Virginia, office on the Eastern Shore. Baum will specialize in working with homebuyers and sellers.

“We are very excited and fortunate to have Ericka join our team of highly trained professionals,” said Tina Holt, who oversees the Shore Drive-Coastal office and the Eastern Shore offices. “The combination of Long & Foster and Ericka’s skills and knowledge will no doubt provide the highest level of service to local buyers and sellers.”

Baum is participating in Long & Foster’s Success Path program, which offers extensive training and resources for agents at any stage of their career. The program’s curriculum includes tools for agents to build their business, mentor-style programs, techniques for prospecting and working with buyers and sellers, skills for negotiating and more.

“I see real estate as a great career that I can strive in and build a future around,” Baum said.

“The dynamics of today’s residential real estate market are constantly changing. Participating in our Success Path program has provided Ericka with the right tools to meet those changing dynamics,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “We welcome Baum to Long & Foster, a company that has helped local buyers and sellers reach their homeownership goals for nearly 50 years.”

Baum moved from Portland, Maine, to Nassawadox in Northhampton when she was seven. She has lived in various other Northampton towns that she considers her back yard, including Cape Charles from 2012-2015. Baum currently lives in Eastville, 10 minutes from the Cape Charles office, with her two sons, Landon, six, and Brody, four.

“I really love the charm of Cape Charles and actually have a lot of friends that live there too,” Baum said.

In her spare time she enjoys writing and has a poem published in a collection that’s available at Barnes & Noble.

“Something I try to live by is knowing anything is achievable through hard work,” Baum said.
