In 1966, he moved to Nelson Realty as vice-president of sales. He sold over one million dollars worth of residential real estate each year for six consecutive years.
Long & Foster began with Wes Foster handling the residential real estate arm of the business and Henry Long handling commercial.
In July 1979, eleven years after establishing Long & Foster, Wes Foster became sole owner.
