Long & Foster Real Estate welcomes Rhonda Puryear to its Tri-Cities Southpark office in Colonial Heights, Virginia. Puryear will specialize in working with homebuyers and sellers.
“We are very excited and fortunate to have Rhonda join our team of highly trained professionals,” said Nancy Steinke, manager of the Tri-Cities Southpark office. “The combination of Long & Foster and Rhonda’s unique skills and knowledge will no doubt provide the highest level of service to local buyers and sellers.”

“Prior to my retirement from banking, I knew real estate would be my next step. When speaking to a friend about my plan, she recommended I reach out to a long time Long & Foster associate she knew who in turn passed my contact information to her manager. Nancy graciously agreed to meet with me, was very welcoming and answered all my questions with transparency and warmth. I knew this is where I needed to be,” Puryear said.
“The dynamics of today’s residential real estate market are constantly changing. Participating in our Success Path program has provided Rhonda with the right tools to meet those changing dynamics,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “We welcome Rhonda to Long & Foster, a company that has helped local buyers and sellers reach their homeownership goals for nearly 50 years.”
