Long & Foster Real Estate has expanded its market-leading presence in the Richmond area, joining forces with local franchise Dew Realty. Founded in 1978 and currently led by Bob Flanagan, Trey Flanagan, Lou Flanagan and Sharon Coleman, Dew Realty specializes in residential resale, new construction, land, relocation and commercial sales throughout Central Virginia.
Effective Dec. 31, 2021, the firm and its more than a dozen real estate agents became part of Long & Foster, operating as its new Ashland office. The Flanagans and Coleman have welcomed Teresa Moore, an agent in Long & Foster’s Hanover office, to the team and together, they are leading the new location. David Gragnani, who currently leads Long & Foster’s Innsbrook and Hanover offices, is also working with them as their managing broker. A grand opening event will be scheduled for a later date.
“Long & Foster is committed to growing our presence in the Richmond region and partnering with Dew Realty allows us to increase our footprint and better serve home buyers and sellers throughout the area,” said Dawn Bradley, senior vice president & regional manager of Long & Foster. “Additionally, having leaders who are active in the community provides us with a unique understanding of the local market and the needs of its residents.”
“I’m thrilled to help launch this new Long & Foster office and co-lead a team of agents who will receive the best in training, technology and tools available to them,” Moore said. “Not only does Long & Foster have excellent brand recognition, but also it puts its agents and clients first. We’re excited and ready to put our skills to work in the local community.”
Located at 102 England Street, the Ashland office operates through Long & Foster’s Elite Entrepreneur Platform, which allows agents to build their own business while aligning with the nation’s No. 1 real estate company, as part of HomeServices of America.
“Joining forces with Dew Realty and opening this new office aligns with Long & Foster’s plan to expand our ability to provide unparalleled customer service to our buyers and sellers,” said Larry “Boomer” Foster, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “We have no doubt the new Ashland office will become the go-to resource when consumers in this area of Virginia are looking to make confident, well-informed buying and selling decisions.”
