Long & Foster Expands Affiliation with Christie’s International Real Estate

Real estate brokerage now represents Christie’s in Richmond, Williamsburg

Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States and the No. 1 seller of million-dollar-plus homes throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, has expanded its affiliation territory with Christie’s International Real Estate to include the entire Commonwealth of Virginia. Long & Foster will now serve as Christie’s real estate broker virtually everywhere it does business, from southern Virginia to the New Jersey shore.

Long & Foster already represented Christie’s in the Northern Virginia market, as well as throughout Delaware, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Additionally, Long & Foster is the Christie’s affiliate for dozens of counties and cities throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and West Virginia. The real estate firm holds the title of largest affiliate in the Christie’s network, a status Long & Foster has earned through its leading market share and achievement of service excellence. Long & Foster also was named Christie’s Affiliate-of-the-Year in the Large Market Category for 2013.

“Christie’s International Real Estate is known worldwide as the authority on effectively marketing fine properties, and this latest expansion provides Long & Foster sales associates with the well-earned recognition of being the experts in marketing luxury homes,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “Our Christie’s affiliation also increases the already high value of service our sales associates provide to buyers and sellers of high-end properties.”

The expansion strengthens Long & Foster’s commitment to offering luxury clients the very best in real estate services. It provides Long & Foster sales associates and their clients with the exclusive ability to market high-end properties in their areas using the benefits of the Christie’s brand. All homes valued at more than $1 million in Long & Foster’s exclusive Christie’s territories are now included on the Christie’s website and are shared throughout the Christie’s global network of affiliates. In doing so, these luxury properties gain significant international exposure to exclusive high net-worth clientele.

“Long & Foster has a flawless reputation for integrity and client service,” said Kathleen Coumou, Senior Vice President of Christie’s International Real Estate. “Our global initiatives and marketing programs will continue to highlight Long & Foster’s exclusive properties and their affiliation with Christie’s and Christie’s International Real Estate as they expand their reach throughout the state of Virginia.”
