“We are delighted to have these four talented real estate agents join our team,” said Brandon Long, one of the broker/owners at Weichert, Realtors® – The Griffin Company. “Each of them is extremely passionate about real estate and possess the willingness to go above and beyond to assist their clients.”
Sjovall’s interest in real estate began when he was a child while watching his grandmother invest in real estate properties in Staten Island, New York. Years later, he began his real estate career in Dallas, Texas handling commercial real estate transactions for the state’s largest commercial bank. Sjovall brings over 30 years of real estate-related experience to his new position at Weichert, Realtors® – The Griffin Company. Sjovall lives in Springdale.
Fougerousse is native of northwest Arkansas, having graduated from Bentonville High School and John Brown University. He currently lives in Rogers, Arkansas. When he is not assisting home buyers and sellers, Fougerousse, an avid sports fan, enjoys watching and playing sports.
Kopek graduated from the University of Arkansas with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural business and management. He also served in the United States Marine Corps, where he was deployed to the Middle East from 2007 to 2008. He and his wife live Centerton, Arkansas.
Prior to entering real estate, Agbekoh served in the United States Army as a combat medic. The experience taught him the values of organization, planning and execution, which he believes will be a tremendous benefit for his real estate clients. Agbekoh lives in Cave Springs, Arkansas.
Svjovall, Fougerousse, Kopek and Agbekoh join a team of knowledgeable and dedicated agents at Weichert, Realtors® – The Griffin Company, which brings decades of combined real estate experience to its clients. They are also excited to take advantage of the numerous business tools and marketing strategies Weichert® provides its affiliate agents to help them offer the best real estate service in the industry.
