We were very pleased with Brenda and Michael. We contacted Brenda way in advance of our selling date and they immediately came over to give us some ideas about selling the home. We worked mostly with Michael and he did a great job keeping us informed every step of the way and answered all of our questions very clearly! We appreciated the immediate responses we got from both Brenda and Michael during this process.
Every city has a true professional real estate team that is head and shoulders above the rest. Brenda O’Brien’s Team are the pros to use in the Tucson area. We had owned a rental property for 20 years and decided to sell since we had retired in Baja Mexico. Brenda coordinated a full remodel over 6 weeks. She drove several times up to check on progress and send photos. We listed the property and within hours we had 5 offers all above the asking price. Brenda sorted thru all the details of offers and counteroffers and advised us on the pros and cons of each offer. We accepted and closed thru her escrow/title company. She even arranged an online notary service, so we didn’t need to fly up to Tucson It was easy and always fun when you get above the asking price. If you want a seamless sale from start to finish, call Brenda. Her slogan says it all, “Brenda Sells Tucson”
Simply put, Paula is the best of the best! She is absolutely amazing in terms of her client’s wants and needs, her knowledge of the various cities and neighborhoods within the Tucson area unsurpassed, as well as her knowledge of the real estate industry as a whole. When we contact Paula we had discussed moving to Saddlebrooke prior to Covid, then Covid happened and put everything on hold. When the market started moving in an upward rush, we knew it was the perfect time to downsize from our Oro Valley home into a smaller home in Saddlebrooke. The problem we faced is that we were unable to travel to Arizona to look for homes, and with the market moving so fast houses were selling within hours of their initial listing. Having previously purchased a home with Paul we knew we could depend on her knowledge, expertise, experience, and understanding of our needs, esthetic, and the quality of the home we wished to purchase. We found what we believed to be our future home, and notified Paula. She immediately went over to the home to check things out. Paula called me while viewing the home and said “this is the one.” It checked all our boxes, including having a private pool. The biggest hurdle to overcome was that we as buyers were going to be buying a home for the first time, sight unseen. Hundreds and thousands of dollars is a lot to spend when you haven’t seen what you purchasing. You have to have an immense amount of trust in the person in order to take that leap of faith. But, because Paula had taken the time to build our relationship of trust, we immediately put in a bid to buy the home. We flew out a few weeks later for our first viewing, and we were not disappointed in her selection. It was everything we could possibly want, and need our new home and more. It literary was perfect. We are now in the process of moving into our new home and I know when we put our existing home on the market, there is only one real estate agent who can sell this home and that agent is Paul Puls. As far as we are concerned, there is no better real estate agent than Paul Puls!”
5 Stars!!! Excellent service that exceeded my expectations.
I could not imagine a more attentive and competent Real Estate Agent exists. Tracey Lauren was simply perfect for us.
5 Stars!!!! I just closed on the sale of a rental house in Rancho Vistoso. As I had in the past, I asked Brenda O’Brien of Long Realty to handle the transaction. I did so because she is extremely knowledgeable, professional, helpful, attentive and a real pleasure to work with. She made me feel like I was her only client even though I know she has many, many more. As an attorney, I have worked with hundreds of realtors over my career, but none of them compare to Brenda. She is the absolute best!
We have bought and sold many houses over the years in Pennsylvania, Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Philadelphia, Nantucket and lately in Tucson Arizona. Never have we experienced the success In selling a home that we recently experienced with the assistance of the Brenda O’Brien team. Brenda advised us of a suggested asking price, staged and photographed the home, produced a marketing brochure, and on the very first day on the market we received six bids all of which were over the asking price and reached an agreement for 10% over the asking price! The entire process was less than one week. Brenda was very positive, professional and a pleasure to deal with.
Outstanding service and results.
I’ve been slow in posting my glowing accolades for our wonderful realtor, Tracey Lauren at Long Realty, who helped us find a lovely house in Sun City during this very challenging market (well, it’s easy breezy if you’re a seller). Tracey is only a buyer’s agent so she focuses all of her attention on finding the right home for her clients who range from retirees like us to seven figure luxury home buyers to singles and young families. We even saw her one day after she’d been showing ranch properties. She has an extensive network of seller’s realtors she can turn to for learning about houses before they come on the market, which allows clients the extra time to really see a home and think about it before it goes up for sale and the bidding wars start. She has excellent attention to detail and is very helpful in looking at homes from her professional perspective. She’s so quick to answer emails and texts. If you’re selling your home and Tracey brings clients to see it you can be confident that she’s an above board, timely, detail-oriented realtor who is going to work hard with your realtor to bring a deal together. And lastly, she’s an incredibly kind, fun person. Buying a house is stressful and takes a lot of time. You want a realtor who is easy to interact with and can make you laugh when you’re about to strangle your spouse.
Thank you Michael. It was a tough property to sell. Thank you for persevering. I will look you up if we need your services again.
