Partnership expands Long & Foster’s presence in Northern Virginia

Long & Foster Property Management, one of the largest single-family property management and rental service companies in the country, will join forces with Marine Property Management, a full-service property management firm in Stafford, Va., effective Jan. 1, 2016. The partnership brings together the two leading property management companies and expands Long & Foster’s reach in Northern Virginia. Going forward, the two companies will operate out of the new Long & Foster location at 630 Garrisonville Rd. in Stafford.

Retired Marine Corps Lt. Col. Mark Westerbeck founded Marine Property Management in 2005 with a focus on supporting military families. The business has since expanded to offer comprehensive property management and real estate services to former, active and reserve military members, as well as civilians, throughout the Stafford, Fredericksburg and Woodbridge areas. Westerbeck’s wife, Margie, also a retired Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, operates the business with him, and the couple will both become part of the Long & Foster family. Mark Westerbeck will serve as the Stafford office’s senior property manager in his new role with Long & Foster.

“Our team at Marine Property Management is excited at the service and growth opportunities for our joint operations,” said Mark Westerbeck. “Long & Foster Property Management not only offers extensive online support for tenants and owners, but also brings the backing of the largest family-owned real estate firm in the United States. We look forward to continuing to provide our clients with outstanding service now as part of the Long & Foster family.”

Dedicated to offering a full suite of services to property owners, Long & Foster’s Property Management and Rental Services division, formed in 1968, handles the details of marketing, tenant screening, maintenance oversight and accounting. In 2014, Long & Foster’s team managed more than 6,700 properties, including single family, townhome and condominium rental units, for investors and owners throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions.

“The Long & Foster Property Management team is dedicated to helping property owners maximize their return on investments”“a commitment that has propelled us to become one of the largest single-family property management and rental service divisions in the country,” said Joe Amatangelo, president of Long & Foster Property Management. “Mark and the team at Marine Property Management are similarly passionate about property ownership and management, and they will be an excellent addition to our company.”
