Maryland-based team honored by Inc. for the second consecutive year

The Maryland and Delaware Group of Long & Foster Real Estate has once again been named by Inc. magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the nation. The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to each company’s revenue growth since 2014. The Maryland and Delaware Group of Long & Foster’s sales volume last year was nearly $124 million.

“I congratulate The Maryland and Delaware Group of Long & Foster on their sales success and making the Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “It’s because of agents like Brandon, Doug and their entire team that Long & Foster is the top real estate company in the Mid-Atlantic and will remain as such for years to come.”

The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

The team is led by Brandon Brittingham and Douglas Gardiner. Operating out of several offices, they cover most of Maryland and lower Delaware. The team heavily focuses its efforts on integrating leading technologies and marketing tools in all it does to ensure clients are equipped with the information and assistance they need to find their next home or investment property. The group promotes its listings front-and-center on the web using top-notch search engines, and its agents are highly trained in negotiation to help sellers receive the highest price possible and to help buyers achieve their goals.

“Our mission a few short years ago was to create a real estate team that focused on providing the best possible experience to any buyer or seller,” said Brittingham. “Being named to this prestigious list is a testament to customers responding to the service we have provided for their real estate needs.”

Gardiner echoed Brittingham’s comments, adding, “We are ecstatic to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the United States. This is truly an honor, and we are thankful to our team and our clients for helping us get there.”

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region and other criteria, can be found at or in the September issue of Inc. magazine.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor-in-chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
