Kathy Opperman, a real estate professional for over 30 years, has been named managing broker of Long & Foster Real Estate’s Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, office. Opperman also will remain as manager of Long & Foster’s Collegeville, Pennsylvania, office.

Opperman had previously lived and worked in Blue Bell for more than 20 years.  She first worked as a registered nurse from 1980 to 1985 before entering her mother’s real estate business as an office administrator in 1985. In 1986, she became a salesperson and then a broker and manager in 1995. Opperman later worked with Alliance, a leading real estate brokerage in the Philadelphia market, before it joined forces with Long & Foster in 2014. An effective productivity coach and trainer for the agents in her offices, Opperman holds several professional designations, including Certified Professional Coach, Accredited Seller’s Representative and Accredited Buyer Representative Manager.

Opperman will be supported in the Blue Bell office by Chris Mayer and Joanna Bellinger. In addition, Long & Foster’s Lafayette Hill office will be merging into the Blue Bell office. Adding the Lafayette Hill’s agent team and branch administrator, Stacee Angelucci, will provide the advantage of a stellar support system to help grow agent’s careers and serve client’s needs.

Mayer currently works as the agent growth and technology specialist with the Blue Bell team, and he’s a third generation Realtor and lifelong resident of the local market. He is knowledgeable of the area and has an emphasis on educating his agents and clients through every step of the home buying and selling process, providing them with the confidence they need to make informed decisions.

Bellinger is a member of Long & Foster’s Founder’s Club and is a top producer in the Philadelphia region. She was voted a Five Star Real Estate Agent by Philadelphia magazine for several years.

“Kathy’s exceptional leadership, combined with the backing of Chris Mayer and Joanna Bellinger, will be a winning combination for the Blue Bell office,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “Kathy’s focus on her agents and their careers will greatly benefit the Blue Bell and Lafayette Hill agents and their clients alike.”
