Green Valley and Tubac residential properties; Long Realty Pro of the Year for Green Valley

Hello! My name is Cha Cha and I’m a treasure hunter. I don’t look for pots of gold, though. For me, the treasure is in solving problems and facilitating seamless real estate transactions. My goal is to be part of transactions which leave all parties satisfied.

There’s no better place for me than Southern Arizona. My local roots go deep—I’ve lived in Amado and Tubac off and on since 1956. My father was born in Tucson in 1917, just five years after Arizona became a state. My grandmother was one of the first female REALTORS® in Tucson. And I graduated from the University of Arizona. Go Cats!

In other words, I know Green Valley and Tubac up close and personal. I know the communities, the properties, the terrain and the amenities. At one time I worked for a builder (so don’t forget me if you are looking to buy new), and I love the details of construction. I designed my home in Tubac and watched it go up. Real estate has been my profession since 1989. I joined Long Realty Company in 2006 best move ever.

Friends say I’m outgoing, a tireless problem solver, sort of funny, a great listener, and always on the go (with a name like Cha Cha, I’d better be!). They also say I’m willing to go way past what’s expected—I’m always glad to make home visits when an office visit or using a computer is difficult for a client. And because of the Long “family” I can refer you to an agent in Tucson, Buffalo, Panama or where ever. Just ask me.

My proudest moments are when sellers, who’ve put their faith in me, are able to move on or when buyers invite me to see how they’ve improved their new home and have made it their own.

Every successful transaction is a great accomplishment. That’s my treasure!

I have done A LOT of real estate transactions and have dealt with some excellent realtors but Cha Cha Donau is the best of them all!

Our agent, Cha Cha Donau, was FANTASTIC! She always responded quickly to every inquiry we made of her. She was always there for us every step of the way and made an otherwise stressful experience actually enjoyable. I highly recommend her!!!

Cha Cha is the best! She is reliable, helpful and has so much information to share that helps with every step of the transaction. Thank you for a wonderful home buying experience.

Sandra L

Cha Cha Donau could not have been more helpful, efficient, easy-to-work with. I felt confidence in her from the very beginning. It was obvious she had a great deal of experience. She was helpful in getting the house on the market, taking care of so many things during the process since we were already out-of-town, and moving the sale along by having all her ducks in a row. I strongly recommend anyone selling their house to contact Long Realty and, especially, Cha Cha. It was a pleasure to have her on our team.

Cha Cha was great. Kept me informed at every step of the way and always made sure that I was protected and satisfied. As a former real estate agent, I know good service and she is the best.

A pleasant experience in spite of passing on one home after an inspection. Recommendations by our realtor were timely and most helpful.

We recently concluded our third transaction with Cha Cha and Long Reality. We can count on personal service and integrity. We will always choose this team as well as talk them up in the community.

MacHelle & Gregory Kelchner

Cha Cha Donau (our agent) went above and beyond expectations on making and closing our deal on a tight timeline! After listening to us describe what we were looking for, she was able to show us only properties matching our requirements. Her network of local resources was instrumental in us gaining the information we needed to make a decision. I highly recommend Cha Cha and Long Realty.

Steven & Cheryl Rykaczewski

It felt like a good friend was looking out for my best interest!

Melburne & Judith Pierson

My mom was selling her Arizona property and she lives in Georgia. Cha Cha made it very easy for us to do this and we closed without any issues.

Marleen Scanlon

Cha Cha Donau was our Listing Agent from Long Realty. She did an excellent job from start to finish. She was easy to work with (no pressure) at any time. She is great at communication and always returned my calls, texts, or e-mails quickly. We could not travel to GV so Cha Cha had to work extra hard with all the e-mails, text, etc. She just was a pleasure to work with and was very professional and always answered any questions I had. As I told her, if we sell another home in Green Valley, AZ, Cha Cha will be our real estate agent of choice. Gregg & Sandy Barber
