Senior Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®)

My first step in any transaction is listening and understanding the goal each client is trying to achieve. Then I pair their needs with my knowledge of the market and go to work! Real estate is one of the greatest impacts in people's lives. I want to be part of that experience. I am tenacious, loyal, earnest and caring. I understand the enormity of the decision to buy or sell a home so I am quick to respond to any and all inquiries. I believe fun and patience are the keys to an enjoyable experience for my clients.

When I look back on my real estate career, there are so many transactions that I'm proud to have been part of.
• I found some clients their forever home. We looked long and hard to find a contemporary home in Tucson. I found them a new build, not yet on the market.
• Finding an out-of-state client a condo for their son to attend the University of Arizona. I love working with first-time home buyers.
• When I was able to find a disabled veteran his home and financing - the hug and hand shake thanking me was a real reminder of why I love being a REALTOR®.

Prior to becoming a REALTOR®, I worked for 30 years selling software and hardware. It gave me the ability to negotiate and a very good understanding of the importance of details.

Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, I've lived in Tucson since 2012. I always enjoy a round of golf and there is no better place than Tucson. It has so many great golf courses and you can't beat the breathtaking mountain views while on the green. When time allows, I also enjoy family time, fishing, barbecuing, and am a big baseball fan!

Client Reviews

Jerry Gonzales is very customer oriented, responsive and knowledgeable. I was extremely impressed with his attention to detail and responsiveness, I never had to wait for a response to my questions and numerous times he provided some head-up information that save me time and money. I would and will recommend Jerry & Long Realty to Friends, Associates and Family in need of a realtor.
