As your Long Realty sales associate, We are always available to answer your questions, provide you the information you require to make good decisions and stand by you every step of the way until the successful completion of your transaction. It is my hope that you will have an outstanding real estate experience that will lead to a solid partnership between us for years to come, and we thank you for this opportunity.
We have the professional designations which denote specialized real estate training and education.
  • ABR- Accredited Buyers Representative: I work with buyers and understand their demands and their product knowledge. By understanding their needs and demands, I can tell the story that will present your home in the best possible light for the highest price. In negotiation, strategies are built on buyer issues that may affect your sale: financing, surveys, inspections, easements, title issues, bank/short sale issues. I network with other ABR agents that have buyers ready to buy.
  • CDPE- Certified Distressed Property Expert: My knowledge and ability to understand the short sale or REO process differentiates me from other agents, who have not taken the time to learn the process to successful distressed negotiations. With correct systems and a partnership with short sale attorneys, we assist our sellers to successful closings with peace of mind in the areas of law and accounting.
  • CIAS- Certified Investment Agent Specialist: By computing CAP rates, cash-on-cash returns, cash flow, and return-on-investment we have the ability and knowledge to show investor clients the benefit of buying your home as a possible investment. By understanding the resort market—your home may offer resort rental opportunities/ time share opportunities depending on your homeowners codes, covenants, and restrictions.
  • CRS- Certified Residential Specialist: Buying or selling a home is one of the most crucial financial transactions of your life. In what can be a confusing and sometimes difficult process, it pays to leave as little to chance as you can. But with the help of a professional, you can navigate unknown territory with ease.
  • Only 4% of all real estate agents have undergone this rigorous, higher-level training course aimed at making residential transactions as smooth and worry-free as possible. A CRS member must be in good standing the local Board, State Association, and the National Association of Realtors and have a history of demonstrated sales performance through the documented execution of residential sales transactions.
  • SFR- Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource: I stay current in all areas of short sale listing strategies, REO strategies, and the management of bank files. I network with the best agents who keep up-to-date with changing distressed parameters—so that our bank negotiation skills are sharp.

"We were referred to the Vallees through our agent in Denver. After moving many times around the country I can tell you that Kathy and Don are two of the best agents we've ever encountered! They know Tucson, they get to know their clients and their needs, and they did a great job of helping us navigate yet another new real estate market. They are patient, responsive, and always, always had our best interests in mind. They are the ultimate professionals and tough just when you need them to be. And other agents respect them as well--always helpful when negotiating! We could not have been in better hands with better people, and we highly recommend Kathy and Don Vallee.”

"Thanks to Kathy’s extensive internet knowledge and her marketing our home via the computer, a new home buyer saw our MLS listing, and with some help from a glorious sunset to mesmerize the new couple into agreeing that they had found their new home, it was all made possible by the diligent effort made by a beautiful real estate team! With Kathy & Don’s very hard and dedicated work, they accomplished their goal and made our dream come true. They are true heroes in our book and we highly recommend them to everyone thinking of listing their home for sale."
