Long & Foster to open new office in Richmond’s historic Church Hill
Long & Foster Real Estate continues to expand in the Richmond market with a new office that will open in Church Hill this spring.
Long & Foster, based out of Chantilly, has leased space at 313-315 N. 24th Street. The company says that initially about 12 sales associates will work from the location. Set to open in April, the office will be Long & Foster’s 17th location in the greater Richmond area.
“The Church Hill area is a prime spot for a new Long & Foster office, because it’s in the middle of one of the fastest growing markets in the Richmond region,” Brian Haug, senior vice president for real estate and mortgage, said in a statement. “We are always looking for opportunities to grow Long & Foster in key locations where agents can engage directly with their community and clients.”
The new office is located a mixed-use development that includes apartments, commercial space and a community center. Part of the project made use of a renovated 90-year-old former industrial building known as Nolde Garage. It sits across the street from historic St. John’s Episcopal Church, a landmark that dates to 1741 and was the site of Patrick Henry’s famous “liberty or death” speech.
David Gragnani will serve as the office's managing broker. He also oversees two other Richmond-area Long & Foster offices. David Seibert, a Long & Foster agent since 2008, also has assisted Long & Foster in establishing the new office. Gragnani is a lifelong Richmond resident who grew up in the nearby Fan District. Seibert lives in Church Hill.
