Seidel ranks among top 100 associates at leading brokerage
Linda Seidel, a sales associate with Long & Foster Real Estate, attended the company’s Top 100 Elite Performers Retreat in Hershey, Pennsylvania, on Oct. 23 and 24. Seidel is an associate with the company’s Greenspring office in Lutherville, Maryland. The company’s 100 highest ranking agents by 2017 sales volume and its 100 top agents by 2017 transaction sides were invited to the retreat, and Seidel joined nearly 100 of her Long & Foster associates for two days of networking, business development and industry analysis.
“Connecting with other Long & Foster agents at the Top 100 Elite Performers Retreat enabled me to explore best practices and strategies to even better support my business, while gaining competitive insights on how to successfully maneuver in today’s market,” Seidel said. “I’m honored to be among the company’s top performing agents, and I look forward to putting the information I learned and relationships I built at the retreat to use in serving my clients.”
The retreat featured a variety of networking and business development programs, as well as an engaging keynote address by Steve McClatchy, a New York Times bestselling author and entrepreneur. McClatchy shared his passion for continual learning and career growth, offering valuable performance and leadership advice to help Long & Foster’s top associates remain at the peak of the industry.
Individual sessions built on McClatchy’s presentation, with team-building exercises and actionable educational programs. The retreat also focused on how agents can meet the needs of their clients in a quickly changing market. In addition, it provided an opportunity for Long & Foster’s management team to collaborate with these top associates—an effort that helps ensure all of the 10,000+ Long & Foster agents are well positioned for real estate success.
“From discussing trends—like emerging technology and industry disruptors—to sharing ideas on today’s market challenges, the Top 100 Elite Performers Retreat provided our leading associates an opportunity to leverage our unique and broad Long & Foster network,” said Larry “Boomer” Foster, president of Long & Foster Real Estate.
“Not only did the retreat give our highest ranking agents a chance to network with each other, but also it presented them the occasion to engage Boomer, me and our leadership team, often one-on-one, and contribute to the future of our company and industry,” added Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate.
