THE REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION
I take pride in knowing that my abilities, level of motivation, and positive attitude give you what you need and when you need it. No transaction is like any other, and as my client, you will be kept aware of everything that is occurring in a timely manner. Communication is the key to how I operate my practice. Whether you are a first time home buyer or seller, or a seasoned investor, you will receive first class service from me and my team at Long Realty West Valley!
THE CHALLENGES PRESENTED BY THIS MARKET
Because of the many factors in the national and Arizona economies, I am working harder than I ever have to insure my clients are kept aware of their options as sellers and/or buyers. It is a competitive market that somewhat favors the seller today. This, of course, is specific to each community and neighborhood. As inventory levels have grown, interest rates and selling prices are rising, and anxious buyers and sellers wishing to move now are all factors that we are dealing with today.
Allow me to provide you with the Long Realty tools and support you deserve! You want to make good decisions so that you may buy or sell that home and move on with your life!
