When Ron Pearman became a real estate agent in 1974, he worked hard to shape a path in the business that would allow him a long and successful career. He quickly obtained his broker license and ran his own major franchise. He sold to Abbitt Realty and served as their General Sales Manager and Senior Vice President. Eventually, Ron made the move to Long & Foster, where he served for over 15 years as Regional Senior Vice President.
His service to the industry has earned him a Manager of the Year and Lifetime Achievement award from VPAR, for which he served on the Board of Directors and Professional Standards Committee. Since the turn of the millennium, Ron has served 10 years on the Board of Directors for REIN, the MLS system of Hampton Roads, and was REIN President in 2011. He also gave 4 years of service to the Executive Committee of HRRA. Ron has given generously of his time to many charitable organizations through the years. He did fundraising for MDA and the Special Olympics, was Chairman of Newport News Heart Association for 1 year, and actively contributed, for 25 years, to Toys for Tots.
Of all his professional and charitable achievements, Ron is most proud of the personal achievement of raising four wonderful children and marrying his lovely wife Diane, a successful real estate broker in her own right.
