From Evers & Co. website
Long & Foster Real Estate announced Tuesday that it has acquired Evers & Co., a real estate company with offices in Chevy Chase and Bethesda.
Nearly 100 Evers agents and employees will become part of Long & Foster, according to a press release about the acquisition.
Donna Evers, who has nearly 40 years of real estate experience, will join Long & Foster’s leadership team, the press release said. She will continue to manage the three Evers & Co. offices in Chevy Chase, Bethesda and Washington, D.C.
Evers founded her firm in 1985. It will retain its name until early fall, then become part of the Long & Foster brand, according to a press release.
News of the acquisition comes five days after HomeServices of America Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, announced that it acquired The Long & Foster Companies Inc., which is based in Chantilly, Virginia. A press release about that acquisition says Long & Foster is the largest independent residential real estate brand by volume and second largest independent brand by units, according to the 2017 REAL Trends 500 report.
Long & Foster has about 11,000 agents in more than 230 offices in the mid-Atlantic region and beyond, the press release said.
“Like Long & Foster, Evers & Co. has a long history of success in the D.C. area real estate market, and we’re pleased to welcome their team to our family,” Larry “Boomer” Foster, president of Long & Foster Real Estate, said in a press release.
“We’re excited to take full advantage of all the marketing, training and technology provided by Long & Foster, including its exclusive relationship with Christie’s International Real Estate,” Donna Evers said in a press release.
