Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States, welcomes Larry Barnett as a sales associate in its Old Ivy Sales office at 350 Old Ivy Way, Suite 200 in Charlottesville, Va.
“We are excited to announce Larry Barnett has joined our team of highly trained professionals,” said Boomer Foster, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “As the No. 1 brokerage in the Mid-Atlantic region, we operate with an agent-first mentality. We look forward to the energetic partnership Larry has created by deciding to join the industry-leading Old Ivy Sales office and our company.”
Larry started his real estate career in 1978 after retiring from the Air Force. He earned his broker’s license in 1981. With more than 36 years in real estate, including several years managing a Long & Foster office in Vienna, Va., and 15 years in which he ran one of the top offices in the Scottsville, Va., area, Barnett Real Estate, he had made plans to retire until he heard that Long & Foster Real Estate had opened offices in Charlottesville.
Barnett said he was convinced that this development was going to be a game changer for the Central Virginia market. He feels strongly that local buyers and sellers will benefit because Long & Foster is the No. 1 privately owned company in the United States with over $38 billion in sales volume in 2014. Barnett said the tools Long & Foster provides to its agents are unbelievable and is excited to be a part of the company’s growth.
“Long & Foster continues to lead the way with cutting-edge tools and technology, which attracts top real estate professionals such as Larry,” explained Art Pearson, Manager of Long & Foster’s Old Ivy Sales office. “With the best-trained, best-equipped agents, Long & Foster continues to help Charlottesville area buyers and sellers reach their homeownership goals.”
