New structures allows organization to better support agents, clients
In an effort to better support its real estate agents and their clients, Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest independent residential real estate company in the country, has restructured its Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware and Eastern Shore (Maryland) regions into two new regions. Going forward, the company will operate a coastal region, which will include all of its Jersey shore offices, as well as locations on the Delaware beaches, in Ocean City, Md., and on the Eastern Shore. It will also expand its Philadelphia metropolitan region to include New Castle County, Del., and the nearby New Jersey suburbs.
Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate, explained that the new structure strengthens Long & Foster’s position in the Northeast by bringing together the entire Philadelphia market—which includes the nearby New Jersey and Delaware suburbs—into one dominant region and connecting its coastal markets from Maryland to New Jersey.
“Our business in Philadelphia and along the shore has increased significantly the past couple years, and as we looked toward the future and supporting these growing markets, we recognized the need to restructure our regional divisions,” said Scott. “Not only does the new structure better connect our market areas, but also it allows us to stay as close to our agents as possible and helps increase our business.”
Terry Spahr, who previously led the company’s New Jersey, Delaware and Eastern Shore regions, will serve as senior vice president and regional manager for Long & Foster’s new coastal region. Bob Albanese and Ron Clarke will jointly lead the expanded Philadelphia metropolitan region as senior vice presidents and regional managers. Albanese, who’s been with Long & Foster since 2011, headed the former Philadelphia region for the company along with Clarke, who joined Long & Foster in September 2014 when the company joined forces with his former brokerage.
