Founded in 1968, Long & Foster has grown from a single, 600-square-foot office in Fairfax, Virginia, to the largest privately-owned real estate company in America. 

Wes Foster began his real estate career in 1963 as a sales manager at Michew Corporation, a home builder. In 1966, he moved to Nelson Realty as vice-president of sales. He sold over one million dollars worth of residential real estate each year for six consecutive years. 

Long & Foster began with Wes Foster handling the residential real estate arm of the business and Henry Long handling commercial. In July 1979, eleven years after establishing Long & Foster, Wes Foster became sole owner. Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. currently has offices and associates in Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, Delaware, and North Carolina.  

Having outgrown it’s old headquarters, The Long & Foster Companies has made a commitment to our local marketplace by moving in the summer of 2008 into the new corporate headquarters building right in our backyard! It’s located on on Rte 28 between Rte 50 and 66. Part of the beautiful 39-Acre corporate campus that will one day be home to hotels and other office buildings, the handsome Williamsburg-style headquarters building was constructed using over one million handmade bricks, and it incorporates many of the latest “green” building materials & energy saving devices. It won every architectural, construction and design award in its category when it was built!
