I am originally from Billings Montana, but have lived in Tucson since 1969. My favorite things about Tucson are the lovely winters, the friendly people, and how we really enjoy the rains. To pass the time when I’m not working, I enjoy family time, laughing, and being with my kids and grandchildren.

I am an Associate Broker, Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), Certified in Short sale properties, foreclosure short sales, and I am an REO Specialist. My client-focused approach mean I listen closely to my clients and like things to work out for everyone. I am a problem solver, seeing all sides of a problem and working to resolve it. I always happy to help and am never afraid of hard work. My hard work has earned me a place in Long Realty’s Directors Circle.

My proudest moments are every time I hand a buyer keys to their new home and say “Congratulations!” I love helping clients fulfill their dreams! If I can help you with your real estate dream, Talk to Me!

Client Reviews

I would trust Karen Barrera with my children. Mary Maza in the Mortgage Department was also a pleasure to deal with. Long Realty will be my “go to” from now on. Long Mortgage beat Nova Home Loans in every category-service, rate, efficiency. Great job.

Karen did an excellent job in keeping me informed with all things related to the selling of my house.
