You Can't Shovel Sunshine!
It was January and after snow plowing another several inches of snow I decided I’d had enough Chicago winters. I couldn’t take another Polar Vortex! So my wife Tina, our daughter Bella and I decided to move to the Valley of the Sun. Who could resist 360 days of sunshine a year?
I grew up in Skokie, Illinois and except for the 4 years of college I lived in Illinois my whole life. I studied at Washington University in St. Louis and then at the Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago-Kent College of Law. As I grew in my professional career I found that I have a strong passion for being involved in a service business where I can help people. First as a lawyer and then as the owner of 3 successful businesses. One a retained executive search and management consulting firm, a consumer lending firm and the third a therapeutic massage franchise called Massage Envy. I also bought and sold real estate in Chicago for a time early in my career. Each of these business ventures has been one more building block preparing me to be a REALTOR® here in Arizona. I moved into my career as a REALTOR® because it allows me to continue to use my experiences working with people to help clients find their dream home.
I am a member in good standing of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), the Arizona Association of REALTORS® (AAR), and the West Maricopa Association of REALTORS® (WeMAR).
Buying or selling a home remains one of the most important investments you will make in your lifetime. If you are buying or selling a home I would be honored to represent you. I take pride knowing that my abilities, level of motivation and persistence, and positive attitude give you what you need and when you need it. My promise is to keep you informed of every aspect of your transaction 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. I look forward to meeting you and helping you begin the next chapter in your life’s experience.
Since Tina, Bella and I moved to Goodyear I have spent a lot of my free time exploring other communities in the West Valley…Buckeye, Surprise, Verrado, Sun City, Peoria. As a Realtor with Long Realty West Valley I look forward to helping clients, from millennials to empty nesters, find their dream home, wherever that might be. Whether you’re taking the plunge like we did and getting away from the cold and snow or you already live here I want to be your REALTOR®.
If you have any questions about moving and/or relocation please call me at 480-252-5504 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now I’m going to go out and soak up some of that sunshine.
