Long & Foster Real Estate welcomes Katie Prescott to its Oceanfront/Coastal office in Virginia Beach. Prescott will specialize in working with homebuyers and sellers.
“We are very excited and fortunate to have Katie join our team of highly trained professionals,” said Tina Holt manager of the Oceanfront/Coastal office. “The combination of Long & Foster and Katie unique skills and knowledge will no doubt provide the highest level of service to local buyers and sellers.”
Prescott 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. Prescott holds membership in the Hampton Roads Realtors Association.
“The problem with real estate is that it is local,” said Robert Kiyosaki, author of bestselling book, “Rich Dad Poor Dad. “You have to understand the local market.” “I am a local through and through,” said Prescott. “I have lived all over the seven cities. As someone who has traveled a good bit of the world, I know that there is no better place to live.”
“The dynamics of today’s residential real estate market are constantly changing. Participating in our Success Path program has provided Katie with the right tools to meet those changing dynamics,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “We welcome Katie to Long & Foster, a company that has helped local buyers and sellers reach their homeownership goals for over 50 years.”
Prescott grew up in Chesapeake and lived in Charlotte, North Caroling for seven years before moving back to the area. After beginning her studies in elementary education at Old Dominion University, she left to begin a career as a flight attendant. A few years later, she returned and completed a degree in communications with a focus in International and Intercultural Relations with a minor in Political Science.
While working as a flight attendant, Prescott also spent time tutoring autistic children and doing some work in marketing.
Prescott has been married to her husband Nick, for two years. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, reading and spending time with her husband and her dog, Albus.
