Long & Foster Real Estate, the No. 1 independent real estate brand by sales volume, has named Debbie Shobe as its 2018 Foster Family Award winner. Shobe is an executive assistant in the company’s Richmond, Virginia, regional office. The Foster Family Award recognizes Long & Foster employees who achieve excellence in customer service.

“We are so proud of Debbie and grateful for all the contributions she makes to our company,” said Brian Haug, senior vice president and regional manager of Long & Foster Real Estate in Richmond. “Debbie is a true professional who is dedicated to providing excellent service to everyone with whom she works—from our agents to our buyers and sellers—and this award is a testament to her passion and commitment.”

Nominations for the awards are accepted for any employees who exemplify the organization’s five keys to exceptional service—being accessible, listening, being responsive, having a can-do attitude and caring about their clients and colleagues. The company then presents two awards—one to an employee in its field operations and another to an employee within its shared corporate teams—to those individuals who embody that commitment to exemplary service.

“I am honored that the Foster family recognized me for this prestigious award,” said Shobe. “Having worked with the company for so many years, I’ve seen the unbeatable support that Long & Foster and its management team provides to its family of employees and sales associates, and I strive to do the same when I’m working with our Long & Foster family here in Richmond.”

During her more than 15 years at Long & Foster, Shobe has become known for her unwavering dedication to customer service. Her continually positive attitude and her ability to maintain and demonstrate excellence sets an example for all of her peers. Shobe shows a selfless dedication to Long & Foster, handling whatever task is needed to help the Long & Foster Real Estate team in Richmond to achieve success.

Shobe was born and raised in the Richmond area, where she currently resides with her husband. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her seven grandchildren. For more information on Long & Foster, visit LongandFoster.com.
