Long & Foster Companies CEO ranked 35th on Swanepoel Power 200

Jeffrey S. Detwiler, president and CEO of The Long & Foster Companies, has once again been named to the annual Swanepoel Power 200. The list recognizes those in the real estate industry who are considered the most powerful and influential.

Detwiler was named No. 35 on this year’s list, which includes 200 influential CEOs, top executives and other leaders in the residential real estate industry. The list was created by Stefan Swanepoel and Rob Hahn in 2014, and Detwiler has been on the list every year since its inception.

“Those named to the Swanepoel list are innovative leaders in the real estate industry, and there are many worthy experts and professionals included,” Detwiler said. “Our goals at Long & Foster have always been honesty, integrity and innovation, and it’s an honor to have been named to the Swanepoel Power 200 list again.”

The rankings are based on several criteria including an individual’s personal influence, their tenure in the industry, the office they hold and the decision-making power of that office. Their company’s financial status, size and significance within the industry, as well as its geographic reach, are also considered in the process. Additionally, the individual’s future contributions to the industry are part of the evaluation criteria.

Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate, and Gino Blefari, president of Long & Foster’s parent company, HomeServices of America, also ranked on the list.
