If you ask me, the two busiest professions are teacher and REALTOR®, and I’ve been both. In 1973, I relocated from Brooklyn to the Old Pueblo. Teaching in New York City schools was the ideal background for my next career.

I love both teaching and real estate, and they have a lot in common. To succeed, you need to be both efficient and accurate. Helping buy or sell a home gives me an opportunity to help my clients become fully versed in—and comfortable with—the process. That’s teaching! And for 20 years I’ve taught Code of Ethics classes for new members of the Tucson Association of REALTORS®.

Here’s a story from my “above and beyond” file. I was working with a family that included three dogs. We’d found the ideal home, but the homeowner association allowed only two dogs per household. One night I called every owner in the subdivision and got them all to support a waiver so the family could keep its beloved elderly third dog. I call that my "three dog night." It’s the sort of thing I routinely do for my clients.

Caring for clients helps me too. I’ve been with Long Realty since 1980—my entire career—and I’ve been the company’s top agent four times. I’ve been among Tucson’s five top REALTORS® for over a decade. Even so, my proudest professional achievement was receiving Long Realty’s Sam H. Woods Community Service Award for “service above self” and inspiring others.

What I do isn’t magic. It’s the result of hard work and comprehensive marketing. I represent both buyers and sellers, drawing on deep experience, strong networks and the latest technologies. And I negotiate tenaciously. Remember, I started as a teacher in New York City, so I’m ready for anything. How can I help you?

I have had the pleasure of working with Madeline for over a decade for my real estate transactions in Tucson. I have worked with many agents in different areas and have to honestly say Madeline is the best. She takes charge, gives good solid recommendations, and protects your interests. She moves property. She listens. She can help you find what you want. You can’t make a better choice for Tucson real estate.

From the very first meeting, Madeline stood apart from the other Realtors we had interviewed. She had a firm command of the marketplace and was able to appreciate the home we wanted to sell. She advised us professionally and was able to execute a sale at full price closing on time. We highly recommend Madeline to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Tucson.

Madeline Friedman is a 5 star realtor. My husband and I were pleased with the experience of selling our home from the beginning to the end. She worked with us in staging our home, setting the right price, advertising and negotiating with the buyer. We found Madeline to be communicative, caring and to have high standards of integrity and professionalism. She advertised our home frequently in magazines and newspapers. She listened to our input and respected our wishes. Whenever we called her, she called us back right away. We have worked with many realtors in different cities and Madeline excels as the finest!

My experience working with Madeline was excellent! She was always available to show homes, always gave great advice and always had time to answer my many questions. She has a calm manner which helped me with my many apprehensions during my house hunt. After finding the perfect home, Madeline deftly guided me through the maze of procedures and paperwork needed for closing. She also has great vendors to help with the move-in process. She recommended top notch painters & movers to complete the process. My experience of purchasing my forever home was made special because of Madeline. She is an amazing real estate agent and an even more amazing human being!

Madeline is fabulous. Navigating the real estate world in Tucson is not for the faint-of-heart or wide-eyed individual like myself. Madeline found us a perfect home and dealt with a not-so-accompanying selling party to where ultimately we were able to succeed in the purchase. Thank you Madeline!! Strongest of possible recommendation!!

Several years ago my wife and I were in need of a real estate professional to help close a custom home sale on the east side of Tucson. After doing some research - we hooked up with Madeline because of her extensive real Estate experience and large network in the greater Tucson area. Looking back, the business dealings working with Madeline (either on the buy or sell side) have always gone smoothly, primarily because of Madeline's organization skills, attention to detail, passion to the industry, and her commitment to Customers. In a 2018 transaction, it was Madeline's network of clients that helped expedite a closing , so the the benefits of working with Madeline are real. madeline is a very creative agent, who really does care about your home sale or purchase.

Madeline, was the most helpful person who went out of her way to make sure all aspects of our home sale went smoothly.

From the very beginning, working with Madeline and her team has been a real pleasure. She was very attentive to our wishes including location, style of house, size and community. It has been my experience that many agents become very pushy, not listening to their clients but rather only presenting their ideas. Madeline was the exception to that, while she had opinions, and wanted us to understand them and the reason for them, she was also very open and understanding and what WE wanted in a home. This has been one of the most pleasant adventures that Janice and I have had. We would certainly recommend Madeline to anyone looking to locate in the city of Tucson.

This was the second time we have had the pleasure of working with Madeline and her team. As was the case 15 years ago when we first met, they were caring, professional and responsive. We would recommend Madeline to anyone who wants a positive, stress-free moving experience!

Madeline Friedman was very knowledgeable and a true professional. She was always prepared and was able to organize viewings that fit our tight travel schedule. And in the end, she helped negotiate a good final purchase price. My wife and I highly recommend Long Realty and Madeline Friedman!

I can't say enough about my positive experience with Madeline and her team. Madeline was a pleasure to work with, providing exemplary support and guidance from the time of my first meeting with her to our closing and beyond. I have had the opportunity to work with many excellent professionals in multiple fields and I have to say that Madeline's work ethic, attitude, honesty and desire to please exceeded all of my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to conduct a real estate transaction. Thanks for a great job Madeline!! Sincerely, Jim Smith
