Long & Foster® Real Estate, Inc., the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States, today announced that real estate veteran Maggie Colman has joined its Pike Creek office in Wilmington, Del., as branch manager.

Prior to joining Long & Foster, Colman had served for 22 years in various capacities in the real estate industry for the Delaware-based firm, Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate. She began her career as a residential sales associate in 1991, licensed in Delaware and Pennsylvania, and was named a broker and manager of a company sales office. During this time, Colman was involved in new associate sales training and continuing education, and planned corporate-wide sales events.

In 2000, Colman transitioned out of residential brokerage to launch and direct a new division of the company that offered extensive home services to all sales associates and customers company-wide. Additionally, she has served in various management and leadership roles supporting the firm’s ancillary businesses and corporate efforts, as well as providing training, marketing, customer service, and recruiting services.

“I am thrilled about the opportunity to become a member of the Long & Foster family, and look forward to bringing my passion for real estate to a brand that has for more than 40 years, helped buyers and sellers fulfill all of their real estate needs,” said Colman. “Long & Foster has an excellent reputation for ensuring that all of its agents and managers have the very best tools, training, and support in the business. I am confident that my years of expertise in the real estate industry – both as a broker and as a manager on the business side – will help me to lead the highly-trained, successful team of associates at the Pike Creek office.”

“Supporting today’s real estate professionals takes a highly knowledgeable, experienced leader – and Maggie has more than proven herself as both a successful broker and an effective manager,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. “As the No. 1 brokerage in the Mid-Atlantic region, we’re excited to welcome another successful manager to the

Long & Foster family and are confident that Maggie will help our agents and clients achieve success in real estate.”

A Delaware native, Colman graduated with a degree in business finance from Mount Saint Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Md. Colman thrives on being involved in the community and the schools her children attend, and is a supporter of local business, sporting events and charities.
