Our History

Long and Foster Headquarters

Roots in Real Estate

Founded by Johnny Morisey and Tommy Fonville in 1973, Fonville Morisey Realty has been the undisputed leader of the Greater Triangle residential real estate market for nearly two decades.

In July 2006, Fonville Morisey Realty was acquired by the Long & Foster ® Real Estate Companies, the largest privately owned real estate company in the nation. The transaction left the company name and organization completely intact – now further empowered by a parent company of world class standing.

Fortified by synergies with Long & Foster, the company continues to set records for sales and client satisfaction.
