Get to Know Laura & Tim Sayers

Laura & Tim Sayers, Realtors, Long Realty

Laura & Tim first moved to Tucson Arizona in 2000. We were drawn to Tucson for the magnificent Catalina Mountain Views, the unique plant life and the rolling terrain. We bought a house backing to a wash with stunning Pusch Ridge views. We fell in love with Tucson. Having moved several times across the nation, it was the first place that felt like home. We have lived in both the Catalina Foothills and Oro Valley. Both of our daughters currently attend the University of Arizona and we have become passionate Wildcat fans, especially basketball.

Over the past 15 years, we have been helping our clients buy & sell homes in Tucson, Oro Valley & Marana. Our business gew quickly as our clients recommended us to their family, friends & neighbors. As our business continued to grow, we developed an amazing tight knit team that we consider our family. Our team members are highly skilled & experienced professionals.

Tucson Real Estate has evolved into a complex business that involves technology, websites, digital photography & video, marketing, negotiating, paperwork and a lot of inspiration and perspiration. The demands of the real estate business have grown beyond what an individual Tucson real estate agent can excel at on their own. The benefit of a team is that each member adds a unique talent or skill, and it shows! Our team members excel at their profession, so our clients receive exceptional personal care and professionalism throughout the purchase or sale of their Tucson home.
