Client Reviews

                    My husband and I purchased our first home under new construction in December 2012 in Oro Valley. John was with us each step of the way. He never rushed us into any decisions and attended all of our meetings with the Home Gallery (telling us which upgrades would have the best resale value), Superintendent and all trades that came through the door. This continued well after we moved into our home and needed the builder to fix a variety of issues. We always felt like he was in our corner and ready to support us in all circumstances. My husband and I continue to rely on John and Megan's expertise as we furnish and landscape our home. They are available day or night through email and text and they never make us feel like we are bothering them. Although we encountered some challenges with our builder, John and Megan made our real estate transaction a positive experience and we would highly recommend them to anyone in the Oro Valley and greater Tucson area. They are not only experienced real estate professionals but they are wonderful people.

John and Megan helped us buy a house in Tucson and they were outstanding. As out of state buyers, you want an agent that is responsive and on top of things and they were both. We made a couple weekend trips to look at houses and they had everything set up well and even provided us a bound booklet of all the properties we would look at that day. When it came time for the offer and escrow, we relied heavily on John's knowledge as he guided us through aspects unique to Arizona and Tucson. They were truly trusted partners throughout the entire process. After escrow, the relationship hasn't ended. John came to turn our heat on when a hard freeze was predicted prior to our move in date and we aren't close to town so it was a bit of a drive. That's just one example of the great service that John and Megan provide. Also, we constantly ask John for local recommendations and he always has someone trust worthy to recommend. If you are looking to buy or sell property in the Tucson area you can't have any better team on your side than John and Megan.

I would highly recommend John Billings for any of your real estate needs. He negotiated the sale of my home in a very professional way which was greatly appreciated since I was 2000 miles away. The date of the sale and closing was only 2 1/2 weeks which was great. Thanks John for a job well done.

Judy K

John ad Megan worked hard to find what I was looking for in the desired neighborhood. Provided numerous propwrties to review. Willing to do just about anything to work for you.

Laura T

Thanks, John, for all your help in selling my townhouse! You are a great communicator and always kept me informed of the progress during the listing and sale of the property. Your referrals to the trades to prepare the property for sale were very helpful. You have represented our family in several real estate transactions over the years & are definitely our go-to guy!

Marianne K

John and Megan were an invaluable resource as we searched for our first home from across the country. They listened to what we were looking for, even as that evolved. When we made the trip to AZ to view homes, our weekend was impeccably organized so we could be as efficient as possible and make the most of our time in Tucson. They proactively helped us navigate the closing process as first-time home buyers, including e-signing from NY. We couldn't be happier with our first home and truly could not have it happen without John and Megan's help!

Sarah K

Communicative, efficient, effective.

Sarah B

John and Megan Billings did such a great job selling our house. We made the decision to sell on a Sunday and by the following Friday, John had two offers for us to review. We were so happy to have the process finish in such a short time. I happily give them a 5 Star rating. They know their job well and responded to all our questions and concerns in a timely manner. They helped take some of the stress out of moving for us.

Jerry P

John Billings showed my wife and I a condo in Oro Valley. It was obvious to us that John had the confidence of the seller and was prepared to make a deal. We were able to make and offer which was accepted in less than 24 hours. We were on a tight schedule having to return back east the following day. John was very helpful to process the necessary paperwork overnight. The closing of the sale took place with "travelling" notaries etc. John's service was excellent and he has continued to follow thru with help we have had needed post sale for several minor concerns. I would highly recommend John Billings,

John M

Would absolutely recommend John and Megan Billings...very attentive, efficient, helpful, and pleasant to work with throughout the whole home-buying process!

Greg S

Excellent communication and attention to every detail!

M.D. D

John was great helping me to sell my home. He was very dedicated and work very hard each and every day in the months that I had my home for sale. His efforts were never overlooked by us. Thanks John for your time. Respectfully, Joaquin and Lina

Joaquin C

We were impressed by John's knowledge, skill and professionalism. Two years later, we still believe he helped us make the best deal for the most suitable property in the best location for our needs and preferences.

Roger B

We are very happy with the service provided by John and Megan with our Tucson rental. They respond quickly and with our best interests in mind. We highly recommend them to others looking for property managers. We also look forward to working with them as realtors in the future.

Very good realtor. Even though our purchase was relatively small still stays in touch

Mary b

We absolutely love John and Megan! They went above and beyond in helping us find and buy a house, and we recommend them to everyone.

Zac a

John and Megan are the REAL DEAL. Our first realtor experience was fine - OK - left something to be desired - so we knew for this sale we needed expertise, energy, professionalism and a strong team. Wow have they delivered. We know we are in the best of hands, not just for Oro Valley but for Tucson! They raise the bar!

Sarah a

John was incredibly responsive to our needs, setting up showings on very short notice whenever we requested it. He was efficient and prompt with all required paperwork. He kept us up to date and informed of all relevant developments regarding our property search.

Bill P

My wife and I could not have been more satisfied with our experience with John. After having our home on the market for four years and having two uncommitted and disinterested realtors, a cold call from John was met with skepticism. But he urged us to hear him out. We talked frankly and John addressed our specific concerns, and told us why he was different. That proved to be the case. He was always available, totally collaborative, and brought engagement, knowledge, and professionalism to the process. He continues to communicate with us, even now, six years after the sale, to touch base and send his best wishes. It is good business, of course, but it is also extraordinary.

Ken G

John has helped us purchase 2 investment properties in Tucson, We live in Dallas and John makes sure to maximize our time when we are in town. I hope to purchase additional investments in Tucson with John's help.

Mark W

John and Megan are the BEST! Nothing is more frustrating than an unavailable realtor. The Billings work 24/7. Despite their tireless work ethic they are extremely patient and low pressure. Partner up with the Billings and you will never feel rushed. We would never use anyone else!

Luke &

We chose Long Reality due to their popularity. At the time we were still a year away from moving from SoCal to Arizona, but John was instrumental in emailing us lists of homes for sale weekly & staying in touch. He met with us each time we came to look at homes at times that were convenient for us even though he had an extremely busy schedule. He addressed all of our concerns promptly and professionally. It was a very stressful time for us but he walked us through the many steps it would take to make our move with ease. We have been in our home just over a year now & he continues to keep in touch with us to make sure we are happy with our choice & if there is anything else he can do for us. We made the right choice in choosing Long Reality, and will send any future business their way.

Tim &

Loved how committed and informative the Billings team is! It was a pleasure to work with them and I plan to work with them again if necessary.

Margaux M

The Billings were beyond excellent to work with. We originally were going with another broker and brokerage firm, however, John was quickly able to show us that he know the market and especially the critical price points. We were fortunate that we were able to attract a buyer that had rented our unit in the past. But as we all know a deal isn't done until each party is satisfied. John represented both sides of the transaction which at first concerned me, but he was very professional in working with both the seller and buyer and we were able to reach a positive resolution to a few minor issues quickly and the condo sold in less than 30 days. Long Realty professional supported the Billings throughout this transaction. Thank you, Donovan and Carole Olson

Donovan a

John and Megan are very responsive to any request. They are available when you request them and are great with communication. They give attention to detail and provide all necessary info In pricing. They are my broker.

Matt J

After having to put my house up for sale and immediately leave town, John went the extra mile for me when vagrants broke into the house and came back even when Police were summoned. He got them out and got the place sold in one month. Thanks Again John!! Becky

Rebecca H

John is our "go to" realtor in Tucson. We were so pleased with his care and attention when we purchased our Tucson home that I recommended him to my sister and mother, who also bought properties in town and worked with John. They had an excellent experience with him, too, just as I expected. John is diligent, trustworthy, professional and honest and does not waste time. All of us who have trusted John with the often difficult process of buying a home have been very happy. If any of us ever sell, we'll call John, first. We will certainly recommend him to any other family or friends who plan to buy or sell, here in town. John is also great with referrals and helped my mom when she needed a handyman and when my sister needed someone who specialized in flooring. We trust his judgement, and it's good to know that he is available for anything that we might need when it comes to our homes. He is always prompt, responsive and friendly and can be reached via e-mail or just a quick call.

Elsa Y

Great support throughout the selling experience. Very pleased.

Enrique &

We ended up having to do a short sale on our home a few years after the crash in 2008. It was a less than ideal situation, but John helped it be as smooth and painless of a process as possible. We have been in the home that John helped us find and purchase after our short sale for over four years now. I still remember our house hunt as a positive experience and John was always available and helpful. I have loved raising our kids in this house - it is a bigger house and on a bigger lot than the one we had to short sale, plenty of room for the kids to play and run. We have referred other friends and family to John and Megan as well, and they also had positive experiences. They are very engaged and responsive with their clients and they stay on top of things.

Cara L

John and Megan have done an outstanding job for us in making sure we are up to date on all facets of the real estate market in Tucson so we can make fact based decisions on our home in Tucson whether to keep it or sell. We would recommend them to anyone who needs a strong realty team in Tucson.

David a

I have had the pleasure of working with John (and Megan) 3 times now. I have both sold and purchased homes with them, and they make the process so smooth and easy. John is very detail oriented and makes sure that everything is taken care of on your behalf. We have felt completely at ease when working with him and will continue to choose him for any home sales/purchases in the future. I can't say enough positive things about working with John and Megan. They are amazing and take such good care of their clients!!!

Kristi H

John and Megan are two of the most professional and knowledgeable agents in the industry. Their attention to detail and true passion for helping people fulfill their dreams of home ownership or selling their home are second to none. I highly recommend The Billings team whether it be you are looking to buy a new home or sell your current one. Either way they will provide an elite experience and guide you through the entire process.

Rob P

I have had the pleasure of working with John and Megan Billings for many years in the capacity of their escrow officer. I honestly cannot say enough good things about them. They are knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with their time. They stay very involved with the closing transaction from start to finish, including attending all their closings. My job allows me the opportunity to work with many real estate agents. I know the buying and selling of a home in this market can be challenging and often an overwhelming experience. Having the privilege of working with John and Megan makes the process smooth and hassle free. Their professionalism, straightforward approach along with the upmost care for their clients, provides for a positive experience for all parties involved. I would highly recommend them for your real estate needs.

Robyn A

John and Megan are an awesome team! We have referred them to friends and will in the future! If you want to purchase or sell they are the team for you!

Don a

It was a real pleasure working with John on our purchase of Vistoso Highlands Casita #116. He was very easy to talk to and provided all of the information that we asked for regarding the HOA. He scheduled the various inspections that were required and quickly provided the results. Everything was handled very professionally from the first walkthrough, the offer, the final walkthrough, and the closing. If and when we are ready to sell, we would use John as our agent.

Ginger a

John sold our home in just a little over a month. We were more than satisfied with his suggestions to help sell our home quicker and the end result. Easy to work with.

Sharon M

Great follow up with customer contact

Greg G

John was the most professional realtor we have ever worked with. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home

John k

Our experience was outstanding on the purchase of a beautiful Dove Mountain Home and the sale at full price of out retirement home in Sunflower the first couple of day after listing it with John. John obtained two full price offers and the sale was a breeze. No hassles. Thanks for your very professional assistance.

Glenn &

Megan and John go beyond expectations!

SUSAN B

Our experience with John was excellent, we found our new house quickly and made a really great offer that was accepted quickly, and we closed in one month. The process was easy and quick with no hiccups along the way, we would recommend the Billings for all your real estate transactions the entire experience from looking at homes through close of escrow to the continued support after the sale two years later is remarkable. Thank you; Richard & Meyo Rubin

Richard &

John was instrumental in sending us listings by email for a year prior to our move from SoCal to Arizona. He followed up with us frequently to see if he could help in any way. He was there for us any time we needed to come look at houses. We have been here for over a year now & love our home in Oro Valley! And John still calls with a hello or wishing us a happy holiday. Now he is busy helping friends of ours from SoCal make their move to this area. We know he will provide them with the same friendly & professional service he gave us. We were proud to recommend him & know he will make their dream come true too! Thanks John! You're the Greatest!!

Tim &

John and Megan are a great team. They are hardworking and trustworthy. They stay in contact and keep you up to date every step of the way. If we ever move again, we will be contacting them to sell our house, and purchase a new one. I highly recommend them to everyone I know. Thanks, John and Megan! It was a pleasure working with you!

Jessica

Great couple to work with! We recently relocated for work and had a short window to look at and purchase a home. John and Megan Billings sent us up to date listings on a daily basis so we were able to preview the homes online. Of the homes that we liked, team Billings previewed the homes on our behalf before we even got to Tucson to determine if those properties would peak our interest in person. When we finally came to Tucson for a quick weekend to look at homes, team Billings took us around to all of our houses (12 to be specific) and already had a brochure made of each property we looked at and discussed the pros and cons of each home. Once we returned to New York we decided to put an offer on a house, and again team Billings put us in touch with top notch mortgage brokers to help facilitate our contracts from the other side of the country. No small detail in the home buying process goes unnoticed with the Billings, and would recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home.

It's been 5 or 6 years since we used John Billings to purchase our house. He was friendly, available when we needed him and very helpful along the way. We still hear from him periodically through phone calls checking to see if all is well and offers suggestions when something is going on. He also always reminds me to check with him if something is going on for the same reason. I also enjoy the emails through the year talking about the housing market or other helpful topics, but not so much I've felt the need to unsubscribe. Thanks John for the help you continue to provide!

Very good

We fell in love with the Tucson area many years and many vacations ago. When we decided to start looking at homes via the internet, we were given a recommendation by a Phoenix broker to contact John Billings. Well John reached out to us at our home in Indiana and our long distance search began. For almost two years, John would contact us, send us new listings, listen to our concerns and what we desired in our "Tucson dream". In October of 2012, we made it out to Tucson at the tail end of a business trip to look at homes and meet John in person! But we only had two full days to view homes! John dedicated those two days solely to us and we saw over 14 houses all over Tucson. On the second night, we returned to our hotel and combed through our pictures, feeling like we had just lived through 10 episodes of HGTV's House Hunters. But we also knew, the second home we looked at on the first day was the one we fell in love with. We called John that night, and he emailed us comp's and other neighborhood information that night. The following morning, and for the 3rd day in a row, he met with us and we wrote up the contract to purchase. Before Christmas of that year, we had our new Tucson dream. John listened to our wants and needs and found us the perfect house. His knowledge, expertise, diligence and recommendations are of the highest level and his dedication to his clients is a top priority for him. Not one step along the two year path, did he ever steer us in the wrong direction. We have our dream Tucson house - which is now our home, and we have a new friend for many years to come in John Billings.

Jim a

John was very attentive and patient with us while we were buying a home!

Grace C

Great job with my purchase, now we need to sell my existing residence.

Jay &

I do not know when The Billings Team sleeps. We were extremely pleased to do business with another young family - this one being exceptional because they completely dominate the Oro Valley real estate scene. From pricing our home to working through the offers/counteroffers, the entire process was seamless. A real highlight was the professional photographer they sent to do our listing's photos. The timeline from listing, showings, offers, closing and leaseback - so we could stay in our home up until our movers - was perfectly executed. The seamlessness and ease of our working relationship - LOTS of texting, very little face-to-face - really enabled me to be fully present in nonstop balance of our work-life-family obligations. This team GETS it in terms of when people have space in their day and passed along critical feedback during the showing process. This was the first time we'd selected our own realor - our first home sale! - and we're spoiled for life, truly. Thank you Billings Team, from the bottom of our hears.

Carl &

We finely got it sold.

Jay &

I worked with John Billings on my home purchase and he was great from start to finish. He made sure an agent got me in to see the house immediately even though he was out of town and then was accessible and communicative throughout the entire process. I am a first-time home-buyer and John was great about making himself available for all of my questions and concerns. He helped me navigate inspections and paperwork and communications with the seller, and I cannot say enough good things about him. I will definitely recommend him in the future.

Kaitlin B

Outstanding, very professional job. Would definitely recommend. Thank you.

Robert &

As first time home buyers with perticular needs and desires we were extremely lucky to find john billings. He was patiant with us and explained everything each step of the way while answer the many many questions we asked. We have started the home buying process in the past with other agents and did not go back to those companies for a reason.

Joseoh &

We have bought 5 properties with John and hope to buy more.

Mark &

John Billings was great to work with, sold my property very quickly.

My agent John Billings did an OUTSTANDING job in this transaction. He is professional, courteous, and goes the extra mile to get things done! I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to sell (or buy) their home in the Tucson area. Rick D, San Diego, CA.

Rick D

LONG REALTY AGENT PERFORMED REALLY, REALLY FAST ON ALL POINTS, SUCH THAT I WAS PRESSED TO KEEP PACE, BUT AMAZINGLY FAST OFFER AND SALE PROCESS WAS THE RESULT. THIS AGENT ARRANGED PROMPTLY WITH RENTAL MANAGEMENT TEAM UPON MY REQUEST IN THE PAST, AND THEN FOLLOWED REGULARLY OVER TWO YEARS AS TO STATUS OF RENTERS AND HOUSE POSSIBLY GOING TO MARKET. BEFORE I WAS REALLY MENTALLY READY, THIS AGENT APPEARED TO MY HOUSE WITH LISTING PAPERS AND PUT LOCKBOX ON THE DOOR. I HAD NOT YET BEGUN TO ACCOMPLISH ALL I HAD PLANNED FOR THE PROPERTY AFTER RENTERS HAD VACATED, AS I HAD HOPED TO DO MORE BEFORE PHOTOGRAPHY FOR MLS OCCURRED. HOWEVER, AS HAPPENED, PHOTOGRAPHY DONE EARLY WAS EXCELLENT AND HOUSE WAS LISTED WITH MLS WITH TWO OFFERS IN RESPONSE ON FIRST DAY OF LISTING! ... I FELT THE AGENT AND HIS WIFE WERE A GREAT TEAM, WORKING TOGETHER IN UNDERSTANDING THE MARKET WELL, WITH AN EXCELLENT OFFICE ASSISTANT AS WELL. IF ONE IS READY FOR LICKETY-SPLIT RESULTS, THEN LONG REALTY WOULD BE A GOOD CHOICE FOR REAL ESTATE CONCERNS. MY AGENT WORKING WELL IN TANDEM WITH BUYER AGENT AND TITLE COMPANY ALSO. I SO APPRECIATE HAVING MET MY AGENT PAST YEARS TO HELP IN SO MANY WAYS WHEN HOUSE WAS A RENTAL UP TO AND INCLUDING FINAL PROCESS OF SALE -- AMAZING DILIGENCE AND FAST RESULTS AS SAID! ... Thank you for opportunity to comment.

John is an energetic and thorough agent. His quick response to our questions and concerns were very impressive. We feel John genuinely cares about us clients.

Your Agent was very good in all areas of service ,and was easy to work with.

We have chosen John & Megan Billings-Long Realty to sell our rental property and have just closed sale escrow. Throughout the time our property was listed with them, they presented our property well. Most of all, we have found John Billings very accessible and accommodating every time we needed to talk to him. We had some out of the ordinary situations with our property and he was patient and helpful. We were always updated on visitors to the property and their comments and interest. We were Very happy with our decision to work with John! Virginia and Mahmoud Yasin

Mahmoud & Virginia Yasin

John was active, informative, communicative and we really appreciated all of his efforts. We have already recommended him to friends. We are so pleased with the ease of the entire transaction. Jack and Peggy Peters

Jack & Margaret Peters

John Billings was timely, efficient and responsive with everything regarding our recent real estate transaction. I should also note that we had been half-heartedly trying to sell our vacant land by owner for about two years prior to listing with John. He had called to inquire (as had numerous agents in the months prior), but in contrast, he was not pushy or opinionated as previous agents had been when asking questions about our property. About a week later, a thoughtful hand written note arrived in the mail offering his real estate services. My husband and I had been considering listing with an agent, and that sealed the deal. We are very happy that we decided to go with John. Not only did he find us a buyer within 3 weeks and negotiated a price that both parties were comfortable with, but he also managed the paperwork digitally which was an incredible convenience and time saver considering we were not local. I would highly recommend John and his team!

Graham & Lisel Hilson

John, was great to work with! John was always very knowledgeable, responsive and helpful. John always followed through what he said he would do. 100% would recommend working with John!!
