Long Realty Cares Foundation was established in 2002 providing a venue for individuals and the company to collectively enhance the quality of life in Arizona. As the company has evolved into Long Companies, renowned for providing exceptional real estate services, it is also distinguishing itself by building a legacy of philanthropy.

Koberlein continued, “Many of our sales associates and employees go even further in their efforts to effect positive change; they make a commitment to serve local charitable organizations in a volunteer capacity. This level of dedication adds a unique dimension for all of us associated with the Long Companies as we treasure our connection to community.”
