Kevin McGrath, a real estate professional for 11 years, has been named managing broker of Long & Foster Real Estate’s Fredericksburg Sales office, located at 1910 William Street in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Previously, McGrath served as the sales manager for the Fredericksburg Sales office. He is replacing Dottie McGinnis Nolan, who is retiring after spending nearly 40 years working for Long & Foster.
McGrath began his real estate career in 2006 after transitioning from working in construction as the general manager at a number of lumber companies, including 84 Lumber, Roper Brothers Lumber Company and The Contractor Yard. Prior to working for Long & Foster, he co-owned the Re/Max Bravo office in Fredericksburg, alongside Jane Wallace. The Re/Max Bravo office was acquired by Long & Foster in 2013, and soon after McGrath was named as sales manager of the Fredericksburg Sales office.
“I am so excited to begin this new role and continue working with the fantastic agents at Long & Foster’s Fredericksburg Sales office,” McGrath said. “Long & Foster is well known for the unparalleled support it provides to its family of agents, and I’ve loved helping agents launch and build their careers while serving as the sales manager at this office. I look forward to leading the office as its managing broker, growing our sales team and helping to build the company’s brand in Fredericksburg and Northern Virginia.”
“We are thrilled to have Kevin in this new position with Long & Foster,” said Larry “Boomer” Foster, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “He is highly respected among his peers in the real estate community and he has an excellent track record of success as both an agent and manager. He is known for his strong ethics and professionalism and we know he will be a great leader for our sales associates at the Fredericksburg office. His passion and commitment to the industry will help our continued growth in the Fredericksburg region.”
McGinnis Nolan became a real estate agent in 1976 and joined Long & Foster two years later. She managed the company’s Dale City office before becoming managing broker of the Fredericksburg Sales office in 1989. She has been highly involved in the local real estate community and a consistently top producing agent throughout her career.
“While we will miss Dottie, we wish her nothing but the best in her retirement,” Foster said. “She originally joined our Manassas office in 1978 and since then she has made a lasting impact on many of our agents, helping them succeed in the industry. She is a great example of the many passionate and exceptional professionals we have here at Long & Foster who truly love what they do. We are grateful to have had her as a member of the Long & Foster family.”
