Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States, is pleased to announce that Founder and Chief Executive Officer P. Wesley (Wes) Foster, Jr., as well as President and Chief Operating Officer Jeffrey S. Detwiler, have been named to Real Estate Executive Magazine’s 100 Most Influential Real Estate Executives list.

“I am grateful to have been named in this list of truly talented and notable real estate executives,” Foster said. “When I started Long & Foster in 1968, my biggest goal was to provide a company that offered excellent opportunities for agents to grow their careers and reach their fullest potential, while focusing on integrity, honesty and good-old fashioned customer service. That goal still stands true today, and honors like this one prove that we’ve been successful in these efforts.”

Those on the list were chosen based on a comprehensive analysis of the leading real estate companies in the United States. Additionally, the list seeks to “recognize and celebrate the service, dedication and hard work that real estate executives put into building their companies and serving their agents and clients,” according to Real Estate Executive Magazine.

The magazine also ranked the top 200 real estate brokers and agents in America, with Long & Foster earning the No. 3 position among U.S. brokerages and a number of Long & Foster agents being recognized. Those agents include The Creig Northrop Team, Debbie Dogrul Associates, The Wydler Brothers, The Fleisher Group, Tom & Cindy and Associates, The Banner Team, and The Mottola Group.

“I’m honored to have been included in Real Estate Executive Magazine’s list of influential industry executives. Additionally, seeing Long & Foster, as well as a number of its agents, ranked among so many other notable companies and figures in the real estate industry reflects Long & Foster’s continued commitment to providing our customers with integrity, innovation and world-class customer service,” Detwiler said. “We attribute much of the success of the Long & Foster family to our investment in ensuring that our sales associates are equipped with the best training, tools and support in the industry, so they can do what they do best – serve the needs of homebuyers and sellers.”
