Long & Foster Recognized as 2016 America’s Most Trusted Residential Real Estate Brokerage

Long & Foster was just honored as the most trusted residential real estate brokerage in the United States!  I received this message from Wes Foster (owner and founder of Long & Foster Real Estate) yesterday morning:

I hope most of you know by now that Lifestory Research 2016 has done a national survey and found that Long & Foster is the MOST TRUSTED RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE IN AMERICA.

What an honor.  When Henry Long and I started the company in 1968 we both wanted our company to be respected and trusted by our peers and the public. Now we are known and trusted nationally because of your honesty and dedication.  You have made this happen. We all should be thrilled. I know I am.


I love Wes’ note.

Other details from the Lifestory press release:

Long & Foster ranks highest in trust among residential real estate brokerage brands according to Lifestory Research America’s Most Trusted™ 2016 Residential Real Estate Brokerage Brand Study released today. The study, based on 15,377 consumer opinions, tracks how trust impacts the evaluations of residential real estate brokerage brands by home shoppers.

“Trust is the new measure by which consumers judge brands when shopping for a new home,” said Lifestory Research President Eric Snider. “When consumers consider the sale of their home, or the purchase a new home, they seek out those brands with whom they have trust. Brands such as Long & Foster are trusted among home shoppers and are sought out because of this trust.”

Meanwhile, the Long & Foster companies’ president said:

“We’re honored that consumers have chosen Long & Foster Real Estate as a brand that they trust,” said Jeffrey S. Detwiler, president and COO of The Long & Foster Companies, parent company of Long & Foster Real Estate. “Our agents and employees are committed to operating with integrity and honesty and providing customers with world-class customer service. This is a goal that our founder, Wes Foster, set for the company in 1968, and these efforts have allowed us to remain the top real estate company in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic for more than 45 years. Additionally, ensuring our agents are armed with the best training, tools and support in the industry allows them to do what they do best—meet and exceed the needs of homebuyers and sellers.”
