I've been in Tucson most of my life. I'm originally from Michigan, but moved to Tucson in my teen years, attending Amphitheater High School. Panther Pride! I then moved to Minnesota for college before returning once again. I've been here ever since—thirty years and counting! There's something magical about this Tucson. From the beauty of the Catalina Mountains, to the refreshing monsoons, my beloved Wildcat Basketball team, and the small-town feel (I swear I'm always running into someone I know around town), Tucson is a one-of-a-kind place. Now that I've settled into my career with Long Realty, I can't see myself ever leaving.
I started selling real estate in 2008 when the recession required a career change. I had spent twenty years working in construction, and in that time, I built hundreds of houses. I know the process inside and out, and use my experience to help Long Realty make financially savvy decisions that benefit us and our clients alike. My certifications include the Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation and membership in the prestigious Circle of 26.
If I'm not working, you're almost guaranteed to catch me outdoors, whether it's hiking one of our many desert trails or entertaining friends in my backyard. I also enjoy traveling, cooking, building furniture, and caring for my Koi pond.
Working for Long Realty means that I get to use my technological expertise and systems-oriented mindset to make a difference in our community through meaningful financial investments. At the same time, I do my best to remain humble, and look at every day as an opportunity to learn and grow by serving my clients to the utmost of my ability. Thank you for considering Long Realty for your real estate needs!
