Wes Foster Obituary, Death Cause – Wes Foster has died. We extend our sincerest condolence. We were raised in a manner similar to that of brothers and sisters by our grandparents, who were my dad’s parents. Both Ryan and Wes Foster were the same age when they were born. When we weren’t at our own houses, we spent much of our time at Papaw and Granny’s, where we played outside. When he came to visit for the death of his father, we talked about the past as if it were only yesterday.
When Long was looking at a house that Foster was showing, that’s how the two of them first crossed paths. The two became fast friends and quickly recognized that they had a number of hobbies. The two individuals made an investment in a real estate business, with Foster concentrating on residential property sales while the other managed the company’s commercial real estate operations. The first location of the business was a modest office in Fairfax, Virginia, measuring about 600 square feet.
Legend has it A toss of the coin, according to what Foster was quoted as saying, decided that Long’s name would come first in the company’s brand name, and that Foster would take on the role of president. Both guys were in their 30s at the time, and they had only recently begun working in real estate. In 1979, Foster purchased the company outright from Long, and during the subsequent 40 years, he expanded the company into what it is today. 2017 marked the year that saw the sale of Long & Foster to Home Services of America, a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary. The Washington Post said that at the period in question, Long & Foster was the largest independent real estate brokerage in terms of sales volume anywhere in the country. The organization had 11,000 agents located all across the District of Columbia.
