As CEO of Long Companies in Tucson, Ariz., Rosey Koberlein oversees the leadership and strategic planning for brokerage, mortgage, title and insurance, and supports more than 1,400 sales associates in its corporate and franchise offices.
In late 2017, Koberlein stepped into the national role of president of the Central Region for HomeServices of America, now overseeing nine HomeServices companies: Realty South; Roberts Brothers; Ebby Halliday Companies; Allie Beth Allman; CBS Home; Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambassador; HomeServices of Nebraska; Kentwood; and Long Companies. “This widening of my responsibilities has given me a new perspective of different company models, their hurdles and their successes,” says Koberlein. “I consider it a major accomplishment to layer in this additional focus and to coach these fellow CEOs.”
Koberlein brings 30 years of real estate experience to the role, and before real estate, she was the director of Employment and Training for the City of Cleveland. She received a Masters of Public Administration from Kent State University and is a Certified Residential Broker (CRB). Actively involved on community boards, and the winner of numerous awards, Koberlein’s heart resides in real estate.
“The real estate world is perfect for me,” she says. “No two days are alike. This is not the profession for a maintenance attitude. As CEO, I challenge myself and everyone around me to be their best and grow continuously—a personal and professional growth.”
