Long & Foster Real Estate, the No. 1 independent residential real estate company in the United States, has opened a new office in Hockessin, Del. Erik Hoferer, who leads the top-producing Erik Hoferer & Associates team with Long & Foster’s Pike Creek office in Wilmington, will head the new location. The new office will be managed by R.T. Christopher, who also oversees Long & Foster’s Greenville, Del., offices.

The new Hockessin location is a direct result of Long & Foster’s Elite Entrepreneur Platform, which allows top producers like Hoferer to build their own businesses while aligning with the No. 1 independent residential real estate company in the United States. Hoferer’s team, which includes Pam Krim, Cheryl DiFonzo, Tina Newport, Rosemary Aslin, JoAnn Barlow Baldridge, Renee Wolhar, Ronda Lancaster, Gina Bozzo and Paul Roberts, will operate out of the Hockessin location going forward.

“Long & Foster is committed to growing our presence in the Wilmington area and the Delaware Valley, and opening this new office with Erik and his leading team allows us to increase our footprint and better serve home buyers and sellers in New Castle County,” said Bob Albanese and Ron Clarke, senior regional vice presidents of Long & Foster’s Philadelphia, Delaware and New Jersey region.

Christopher, who will work closely with Hoferer in building the new locations, agreed. “Having a leader like Erik, who is active in the community and well-respected in the real estate industry, provides us with a unique understanding of the local market and the needs of its residents. Together, we’ll build upon and expand the already high quality of support and services that we offer home buyers and sellers in our communities.”

A native Delawarean, Hoferer specializes in residential real estate, including new construction, in New Castle and Kent counties, Del., as well as southern Chester County, Pa. He is licensed in Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania and holds his associate broker license in Delaware. During his over 10-year career in real estate, Hoferer has earned numerous awards and his team has become one of the top in the country. Erik Hoferer & Associates support buyers and sellers on all types of transactions, from first-time home purchases to retirement living. They also market the entire product line for Ryan Homes, the largest builder in the First State, and as a result, have intimate knowledge of the building process and what goes into it. They have been part of the Long & Foster team since 2012.

Opening the new Hockessin location aligns with Long & Foster’s plan to expand services in the Delaware Valley and the company’s long-term strategy to be the leading real estate company in the First State, according to Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate.

“For over 46 years, Long & Foster has been home to the best-trained, best-equipped real estate agents and leaders in the industry, and we have no doubt that the new Hockessin offices will be the go-to resource when consumers in this area of New Castle County are looking to make confident, well-informed buying and selling decisions,” Scott said.
