At the core of my business is a high level of integrity, honesty and friendliness. I like to use the term “like gold” to describe how I approach real estate and working with my clients. It is so important to me that all my clients experience my professional and friendly approach throughout the entire home buying or selling process. I never promise what I am not able to deliver.

After moving from Chicago leaving a career in sales, I pursued a career where I would be able to still work closely with people, helping them through milestone moments in their life; real estate seemed like a perfect fit.

Providing superior customer service is my goal with everyone I work with. Years ago, clients of mine from out of town were juggling the many tasks of listing their home and preparing it for sale. To help lessen their stress and create a smooth experience, I helped them with the process of selling some personal items and furniture and was involved in coordinating repairs throughout the transaction. They were so grateful and hearing their ‘thank you’ is always one of my proudest moments.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, listening to good music, experiencing other cultures and people through travel, and practicing Taichi. It helps me approach situations being very centered and calm to help provide my clients with the best real estate experience possible.

Client Reviews

Eva was there for us from the beginning. We couldn't be happier the way she organized and guided our buying experience from start to finish. We would use her professionalism and knowledge without hesitation in the event we would ever need her services again. Eva is an asset to Long Realty and its customers. Thank you, Hamilton and Nancy Barnard

In 2016 and 2017 Eva has represented us in the purchase and sale of our Oro Valley homes. She is extremely knowledgeable and honest in communicating property value. She is the best agent we have ever dealt with in 37 years. We highly recommend her to our neighbors, family and friends without hesitation. John and Virgi Pollack

We will only use Long Realty. This is our 2nd transaction with them and with Eva. Both are very excellent!

I found Eva De Rais to be honest and forthright. I couldn't have asked for a more competent, hard working agent. She never gave up despite big obstacles!

Frank Caristi was our first contact with Long Realty because he sold both our villa and house to us years back prior to working in his present location and we always kept in touch. Because of a debilitating illness, Frank turned the property for sale over to his preferred agent, Eva de Rais. Eva sold our villa with all the setbacks that she encountered throughout the selling process. She was attentive to every detail, held endless open house commitments. She went above and beyond what would be expected of a realtor because we were the absentee landlords, and there were problems that she took care of as though this were her own piece of real estate. There isn't much more we can add to this, other than we would have Eva handle any future sales of property that we have in Arizona. She was accessible at all times, willing to go to any extent to sell the property, and was gracious and caring throughout the process. Bart and Jane Rice SaddleBrooke, AZ

Eva DeRais was the absolute best agent We have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.She was always one step ahead of all of us on every challenge that came up. She was conscientious, professional, personable, and prompt with every detail. Eva went beyond our expectations of customer service on a daily basis. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking about a purchase or sale of a.homeg. It is rare that you find an agent who treats you like family from the beginning.
