About Art Lane
“As a former Director of Engineering and Network Operations for three major cellular companies in the U.S., Art is no stranger to detail-oriented professions. After enjoying a successful career spanning over thirty-two years in the wireless industry, where he pioneered the initial launch of the first cellular and PCS networks in the U.S., Art decided to retire in 2003. Shortly thereafter, he obtained his Maryland Real Estate license, and immediately became affiliated with Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc. in Columbia, Maryland. Not content with 'just' being a REALTOR®, in November 2008 Art attained his Maryland Brokers license certification after completing 135 hours of advanced real estate training.”
