Long & Foster is the only residential real estate brokerage honored by Training magazine in 2024

Long & Foster Real Estate has won Training Magazine’s APEX Outstanding Training Initiative Award for its New Agent Onboarding Program. In addition, Long & Foster placed No. 8 of 105 of the world’s top training companies for 2024—the Training APEX Awards. For the second consecutive year, Long & Foster not only ranked among some of the business world’s top companies but also is the only residential real estate brokerage honored in this year’s awards.

“We are thrilled that Long & Foster has been honored with one of the top awards in the global training industry,” said Patrick Bain, CEO of The Long & Foster Companies, parent company of Long & Foster Real Estate. “We’re known as the brokerage that not only teaches new sales associates how to succeed in the business, but also provides valuable insights and education for well-established agents and teams to build and grow their business – and once again this year, our robust training program has received global recognition.”

Training magazine recognized the 105 organizations that excelled at employee training and development in the last year with crystal awards and revealed their rankings during a black-tie gala held in Orlando, Florida.

“Congratulations and many thanks to our talented and dedicated training and development team,” said Jackie Thiel, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “I appreciate all the hard work they’ve done to create such exceptional training programs for Long & Foster and our sales associates.”

Lee McGinnis, senior vice president of Long & Foster’s General Brokerage Operations, attended the APEX Awards gala to accept the Long & Foster awards. “It is truly an honor to once again receive this recognition, especially since Long & Foster is the only residential real estate brokerage honored in this year’s awards,” said McGinnis. “We are committed to continuously enhancing the value we offer to our sales associates so they can deliver unparalleled service to consumers across the East Coast.”
