Long & Foster Real Estate welcomes back Lynn Kemmerer, who returns to the leading brokerage as a sales manager in its Reston, Virginia office. Kemmerer most recently served as supervising broker and licensed instructor for another area real estate company, and before then she spent 15 years as a top real estate agent with Long & Foster.

With nearly 30 years of experience in the real estate industry, Kemmerer has a passion for coaching established agents and training newly licensed associates, so they can serve their clients with respect and empathy. She will work closely with Athena Petersen, who is the managing broker of Long & Foster’s Reston office, to continue to recruit new agents, build office culture and help the firm’s agents reach new heights in their real estate careers.

“I am very happy to return home to Long & Foster and excited to support the team of highly trained professionals at the company’s Reston office,” said Kemmerer. “Long & Foster attracts high-caliber sales associates and clientele and is an industry leader by providing the best and latest tools, technology and training. I look forward to helping Athena and our agents in Reston take their business to new heights while delivering the best possible service to their clients.”

A resident of Great Falls, Kemmerer is highly involved in the community and has volunteered with local sports organizations and Fairfax County Public Schools. She is a member of the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors.

“We’re so pleased to announce that Lynn has joined Long & Foster once again—this time becoming a part of our leadership team,” said Karen Kidwell, senior vice president and regional manager of Long & Foster Real Estate in Northern Virginia/West Virginia. “We are confident that Lynn’s expertise and insights will greatly benefit our agents and their clients.
