Long & Foster Real Estate welcomes Yuri Chigna-Alston to its Strawberry Street office in Richmond, Virginia. Chigna-Alston specializes in working with homebuyers and sellers.
“We are very excited and fortunate to have Yuri join our team of highly trained professionals,” said John VanderSyde, manager of the Strawberry Street office. “The combination of Long & Foster and Yuri’s unique skills and knowledge will no doubt provide the highest level of service to local buyers and sellers.”
Chigna-Alston is participating in Long & Foster’s Success Path program, which offers extensive training and resources for agents at any stage of their career. The program’s curriculum includes tools for agents to build their business, mentor-style programs, techniques for prospecting and working with buyers and sellers, skills for negotiating and more. Chigna-Alston holds membership in the Richmond Association of Realtors.
“I chose Long & Foster to launch my career because I was looking for both the tools to make me successful, as well as brand recognition. I was immediately drawn to everyone in the office, so having found a home amongst my peers was simply icing on the cake,” Chigna-Alston said.
“The dynamics of today’s residential real estate market are constantly changing. Participating in our Success Path program has provided Yuri with the right tools to meet those changing dynamics,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “We welcome Yuri to Long & Foster, a company that has helped local buyers and sellers reach their homeownership goals for nearly 50 years.”
Chigna-Alston moved to Richmond from Arlington, Virginia, five years ago. She studied business administration at John Tyler, and proceeded to work for the Department of Taxation. With encouragement from her husband, she decided to launch her career in real estate, as they both felt it would be an excellent fit for both her skills and her personality. In her free time, Chigna-Alston loves to spend time with her family. She is actively involved in the Latino community, where she volunteers for the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Virginia Latino Advisory Board. Grateful for the opportunity to call Richmond home, Chigna-Alston loves to welcome new residents to Richmond as if it were her own.
