As a REALTOR®, everything I do is in the name of customer service. I've worked as a restaurant owner, a rehab tech, and in hospitality, and from each of those careers, I learned something about the value of human connection. I'm a dedicated, passionate, hard-working professional whose #1 concern is making sure that my clients end up in a better place than when we first met!

I have extensive experience working in residential resale, new home sales, and short sales. My certifications include the ABR, SFR, and MRP designations, as well as membership in the Chairman's Club and President's Club. My communication and negotiation skills help me secure the best prices for my clients while ensuring that we're on the same page every step of the way. My favorite gift to give clients, whether they're buying or selling, is the gift of a clean house! I know how amazing it feels to walk into your brand new space for the first time. Ensuring that it's clean allows my clients to use it as a blank slate from the get-go instead of worrying about doing housework on move-in day.

I've called Southern Arizona my home for over twenty-nine years. Sahuarita is a wonderful place to live because it has a tremendous number of amenities, growing commerce opportunities, and is a hop, skip, and a jump away from downtown Tucson. It truly is the best of both worlds! When I'm not enjoying the city's resplendent outdoor atmosphere, I enjoy exercising, hiking, cooking, and watching TV—if it's related to sports, food, or anything on HGTV, count me in. I have two amazing yellow Labrador Retrievers, and have been known to shower any and all four-legged fur babies with affection. I'm also a proud cancer survivor.

As the middle child in a family of ten, I know firsthand how important it is to communicate with the people around you. I promise I won't let your wants and needs go unheard. Reward yourself with the outstanding real estate experience you deserve by giving me a call today!

Client Reviews

Kathleen is the best agent I've ever worked with and over the years I've worked with quite a few. She listens carefully to make sure properties have what you're looking for, Works tirelessly and patiently on your behalf and it's always up beat. Kathleen goes Way Beyond what any client could reasonably expect and it's a delight to work with. On a scale of 1 to 10 she's at 12. I will be working with her again.

We have bought and sold 13 homes over a period of years. Kathleen Gelardi is by far the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She listed the property in a timely manner, with wonderful photos and virtual staging as per our request. This property was willed to my husband and his two brothers from their sister. None of us had ever lived in the home, so we were unaware of the number of needed repairs which were evidenced in the inspection. Kathleen arranged contractors to do all the repairs, and this included inside fresh paint. The roof had to be coated as well as skylights which were cracked and needed to be replaced. There was a plumber, electrician, handyman, and several other people who did needed repairs. W live in Texas, and we were so pleased that Kathleen did all of the arranging, so it wasn’t necessary for us to make a trip to Green Vally. One brother has no computer, so he was unable to use Docusign for the closing papers. Kathleen drove to Benson to get his signature on closing papers! She went over and above any of our expectations! Long Realty is lucky to have her representing the company. We appreciate all her hard work with our listing. The closing went smoothly without a hitch. We are so thankful that the neighbor of Rebecca Deiley recommended her to us!!!

My name is Erin Jacobsen. Kathleen Gelardi helped me find my dream home. My experience working with her was exceptional. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable concerning real estate. She was patient, pro-active, funny, considerate, and she was always available for calls, texts, and e-mails. She worked with me diligently for months until I found the house that was just right for me. I sensed her sincere effort in this. I am so very grateful for Kathleen. Thank you Kathleen! Sincerely, Erin Jacobsen

Working with Kathleen is always a pleasure. I bought my house here in Green Valley through Kathleen, who was recommended to me by another Long Realty agent in Tucson. I worked with Kathleen while still on the west coast, so every trip here had to be time-managed, efficient and productive. It was. Kathleen asked questions, listened and had an excellent sense for what was important to me in a property. She was informed, stayed in quick and timely communication and walked me through all the details. Couldn’t have asked for a better agent working on my behalf. Recently, an out-of-town relative was interested in buying a GV property. Again, we worked with Kathleen. Same terrific experience. Kathleen was always available, always on time, attentive and patient with all our questions and requirements. Both purchases through Kathleen went smoothly and as stress-free as possible. Beyond the professionalism, Kathleen is, simply, a pleasure to work with!

We worked with Kathleen Gelardi for over a year & she was extremely professional & informative. When we find the house that we eventually bought, Kathleen was extremely helpful in guiding us through the closing. We would definitely recommend Kathleen to anyone looking for a professional & knowledgeable real estate agent.

Kathleen was very knowledgeable with information when we had questions and wanted answers. She knows the market very well in the area, making it where we had our first offer within two weeks. She was there every step of the way to lend a helping hand to listen to our frustrations. Would recommend Kathleen to anyone wanting a top knoch realtor. Thank you Kathleen, you are amazing.

Kathleen Gelardi is well aware of what prospective buyers are looking for and goes above and beyond to help get your property to the level it needs to be and watches out for trends, changes. Never unethical and wants to sell your property as if it were hers.
