Introducing Long & Foster’s Ultimate New Communications App

Long & Foster is introducing Connect, the new communications app for agents. By uniting you with your office and your team of 5-star business professionals across The Long & Foster Companies, the Connect app ensures that everyone can react and respond to critical communications – saving time and helping you to quickly serve your client’s needs.

Statistics show that 60% of people now use their mobile devices even more than they use their computer. Connect, which is proprietary to Long & Foster, is designed around an agent’s workflow, with all of the real-world situations an agent encounters, organized in an intuitive dashboard to make doing business easier.

“We’ve received so much positive feedback from our agents about Connect,” said Lynda O’Dea, Long & Foster’s senior vice president of strategy & innovation. “Agents are calling it ‘game changing’ for their business. With Connect, many things they previously could only do on their computer, can now all be done from their phone.”  

With Connect, you can communicate, access and accomplish tasks, all while showing properties, hosting an open house, meeting with clients, or even enjoying some down time. All you need is a mobile phone or tablet, along with Internet access, and you’re ready to work!

Here’s some of what Connect can do for you.

COMMUNICATE with the people you need – when you need them

  • Instantly contact your Long & Foster team of mortgage, title and insurance professionals, get a moving cost estimate from Tailored Move, or reach Long & Foster’s Service Desk
  • Order repairs, renovations and punch list work through the TLC by Curbio program
  • Contact support centers for your critical business processes (like the MLS or Sentrilock, among others)

ACCESS what you need – when you need it

  • Utilize Foster and the Intranet Hub from the palm of your hand
  • Access your Office 365 programs and files
  • View Success Path training classes and video tutorials, or find and schedule training and continuing education (CE) courses

ACCOMPLISH tasks when you want – from wherever you are

  • Stay updated with mortgage rates, calculate mortgage payments, closing costs, and share net sheets with clients
  • Place a title order, schedule closing, securely submit earnest money deposit checks and upload contracts to RGS Title or Sage Title
  • Add contacts to MoxiEngage, sign them up for Neighborhood News, request a client testimonial via Testimonial Tree, order installation and removal and more

The robust new app is currently available to Long & Foster agents in our Washington, D.C., Montgomery County, Northern Virginia, Southern Maryland and West Virginia regions, who can learn more about it and download the Connect app here.

There are plans to roll out the Connect app to agents in the Baltimore, Eastern Shore and Western Maryland region this spring, with additional regions to be added mid-year. Stay tuned for further information.
