New Long & Foster Arlington Office Centers on Serving Clients and Community

Long & Foster Real Estate’s Arlington office recently underwent a full renovation, allowing its sales associates to better serve clients while providing an inviting space for both business and the community.

The Arlington office, led by Managing Broker Kara Chaffin Donofrio, has been a part of the local community for more than 25 years and continues to place a high level of importance on community involvement. As a way of celebrating the newly finished renovation, the office is hosting an art exhibit by Stanley Piotroski entitled “Piotroski New Works” through Dec 1.

“Our relationship with Christie’s International Real Estate and Christie’s Auction House puts us in a natural position to blend our mission of guiding people on their journeys home with the art world,” Chaffin Donofrio said. “Additionally, providing cultural and philanthropic events allows us the opportunity to be more than the local real estate leader — we’re a true member of the community.”

The renovations to the Arlington office include comfortable, private spaces for sales associates to meet with clients, fully technologically equipped conference rooms and workspace with a variety of settings. The workspace features booth seating, high-top tables and coffee shop-like sitting areas so agents can work in a setting that’s optimal to their needs.

“We’re thrilled to invite the community and our clients into our new space and look forward to continuing to create strong relationships,” Chaffin Donofrio said. “While we sell more properties than any other brokerage in the region, this business is about so much more than selling a house. Our agents become advocates and trusted advisors to their clients, going above and beyond to help them achieve their goals and in the process becoming a part of the story of their life.”

Long & Foster Real Estate will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2018. The company combines its rich history and experience with the best technology available to ensure the best representation for its clients. Long & Foster is the market leader in Arlington and in the Washington, D.C., region with 17 percent of the market share compared to the next closest competitor at 4.1 percent.

The Arlington office is located at 4600 Lee Highway and is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Long & Foster Real Estate is the nation’s No. 1 independent real estate brand and the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in the metropolitan Washington area.
