Long & Foster Recognized as Technology Leader
In case you didn't hear the news, I'm so pleased to share with you that Long & Foster has been highlighted as a 2012 VOLT Award winner by SmartCEO Magazine, recognizing our company as a leader in technology implementation. We were one of 27 greater Washington, D.C.-area companies honored by the publication for having leadership roles in the use of technology in business.
The VOLT Awards recognize the accomplishments of area companies considered to be pioneering Technology Innovators, Technology Implementers and Cyber Warriors. The awards are based on a company’s creative vision, leadership philosophies, innovative strategizing and undeniable work ethic. Long & Foster was recognized in the large company category as a Technology Implementer for our commitment to use existing technology to enhance service offerings and operational efficiencies.
As you know, in 2011, Long & Foster invested in major enhancements to our website LongandFoster.com—recognized as one of the most popular real estate destinations on the web—to focus on providing the most informative, inviting online real estate interaction available for consumers looking to find more information about their next home. The enhancements were designed to make it simpler for consumers to access market information and to more efficiently conduct and manage customized property searches, and to enhance the value of the total homeownership experience Long & Foster provides to its customers.
Investing in enhancements to LongandFoster.com and the company’s ever-expanding suite of mobile tools is an investment in serving the way today’s buyers and sellers approach real estate transactions.
Joined by Barry Redler, chief marketing officer, and Mike Koval, chief information officer, I was proud to accept the award on the company’s behalf during a ceremony held May 15 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. This VOLT Award is a reflection of a true team effort and I offer my congratulations all around.
Everything we do begins with a real estate transaction and a professional Sales Associate and we recognize and celebrate that fact.
