May 30, 2014

Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc., the largest independent real estate company in the United States, has announced that its Virginia Commercial office, located in Vienna, Va., will recognize the company’s annual Community Service Day by volunteering on June 4 at the Lions Club Eyeglass Recycling Center to help clean, sort and file donated eyeglasses.

The Virginia Commercial office will be just one of Long & Foster’s nearly 180 sales offices throughout the firm’s seven-state, Mid-Atlantic, Washington, D.C. and Northeast regions, to perform service projects within the communities they serve, according to Ken Ulsaker.

“Helping out in the community is something we strive to do as often as possible and we always look forward to contributing our time to those in need,” Ulsaker said.

Long & Foster sales associates and employees from throughout the company, including staff from its headquarters located in Chantilly, Va., will participate in a variety of volunteer activities such as working to clean up, refurbish and repair nearby parks, schools, shelters, homes, day care centers and local organizations that provide crucial services to the community.

“This event is a long-standing demonstration of Long & Foster’s commitment to the communities we serve,” said Jeffrey S. Detwiler, president and chief operating officer of The Long & Foster Companies. “Our sales associates and staff thoroughly enjoy contributing their time, effort and donations to make an impact in their local communities. Long & Foster truly believes in the spirit of giving and we’re dedicated to making sure we’re taking care of those around us, whether it’s through our annual Community Service Day event or one of our other many projects, such as the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. We’re glad to give back.”

In addition to its dedication to serving the community, Long & Foster Real Estate is committed to the success of its sales associates and is an industry leader in providing the latest and best tools, technology and training.
