Modern facility nearly doubles in size to 11,000 square feet

Long & Foster Real Estate, the No. 1 brokerage in the Richmond market, recently renovated its market-leading Grove office. Led by Dawn Bradley, the office has been transformed into a more modern and flexible facility, reflecting the quality of the agents and real estate professionals who work there.  For many years, the office has ranked as Long & Foster’s No. 1 Richmond-area office by sales volume—a credit to its tremendous agents and leadership.

The Grove office expanded from 5,900 to 11,000 square feet, and it now features a combination open-plan and private design for maximum collaboration and business development. Easily accessible to home buyers and sellers in the area, the office is home to over 100 Long & Foster Realtors, who are experts in the local real estate market in Richmond and the surrounding area.

“At Long & Foster, we’re dedicated to having the best trained and best equipped agents in the business, and our renovated office helps us to accomplish those goals—giving us a contemporary and functional workspace that promotes collaboration and education,” said Bradley. “Richmond has a thriving real estate market, and we’re in a prime position to grow our team and even better support the homebuyers, sellers and investors in our local market.”

Bradley, a dedicated real estate leader and associate broker, recently was honored with Long & Foster’s Foster Cup award, an honor recognizing the brokerage’s top manager for 2018.

Floor-to-ceiling windows fill the room with natural light, creating an airy workspace that is designed for partnership and productivity. The expansive open area comprises much of the office’s space and includes a dining room table centered by a chandelier for agents to meet and share information.

Contemporary desks are available for anyone to use in the open area. A café-style workspace features high-top tables and stools with cell phone and laptop charging stations.  This space also includes comfortable chairs for agents to gather and collaborate. Several shared offices are also available for the company’s Realtors and teams, providing a quiet area for agents to build their businesses.  A state-of-the-art kitchen has been added for agents and staff to enjoy lunch breaks or hold special events.

“Our new sleek, modern and open office space will be perfect for our agents to not only conduct business, but also to host their clients,” said Brian Haug, senior vice president and regional manager for Long & Foster’s Southern Virginia region. “We look forward to growing the Grove office and giving back to the community while continuing to support buyers and sellers throughout the area.”

Haug, who manages nearly 45 offices and more than 1,300 agents throughout Southern Virginia, also recently earned Long & Foster’s prestigious Foster Cup award, being recognized as the brokerage’s top regional manager.

Several other Long & Foster offices in the region have been renovated or are currently in process of being renovated including Harbour Point in Midlothian, Tri-Cities Southpark in Colonial Heights, and the Virginia Properties and Strawberry Street offices in Richmond.  In addition, two new offices have been opened in the area – Church Hill in Richmond and Centerpointe in Midlothian.

Long & Foster’s Richmond region has seen significant growth this year. Volume of business written is up by 14 percent and units sold have seen an increase of 9 percent throughout the region compared to this time last year. The Grove office has also experienced an increase in volume of business written by 31 percent and in units sold by 47 percent year-over-year.
