A lot of what REALTORS® do involves overcoming obstacles, and I’ve had my share. A California native, I arrived in Tucson in 1981—during a monsoon storm. And I began my career in real estate in 2006—just before the market collapsed. But I don’t give up on myself or on my clients; I’m a problem-solver who works hard to make things come out for the best.

Real estate isn’t my first career. In 1981, I launched The Desert Institute of the Healing Arts, one of the nation’s oldest accredited schools for massage therapists and shiatsu practitioners. I operated the institute myself until 2005, when I sold it. At that time, I had 157 students and 75 employees. Running a business taught me how to communicate effectively, negotiate, and handle my time.

I like to say I have more than 2,000 kids, because that’s how many students I’ve trained. To me, they’re all family, and I take great pride in their accomplishments. Some are even REALTORS®!

My background in bodywork education has taught me caring, compassion, and communication—all attributes in real estate. I don’t call it a specialty, but I can help with the stresses involved in major life transitions such as when a family member moves into assisted living or hospice. I also have the targeted training, and certifications, to help distressed properties avoid foreclosure.

Another asset: my competitive streak. Maybe you’ve seen me at our legendary El Tour de Tucson bicycle race. I’ve been to every event, and I’ve raced numerous time, at different distances.

As an associate broker, I bring high-level skills, experience and accountability to every transaction. Most of my business comes through referrals, because my clients get the whole package—professional skills, interpersonal skills, and a whole lot of drive. Whether you are interested in investment property, a luxury home, or a first time home buyer, I can help you make a good choice.

Client Reviews

"It is my pleaure to testify that I could not have asked for a more courteous, diligent and intelligent service from a real estate agent when Margaret Avery-Moon helped me sell my town house last year."   Brooke.

Brooke

"In our opinion, we couldn't have chosen a better Realtor than Margaret to sell our investment property.  Even though the property was in North Marana, where we thought it would take a while to sell, Margaret brought in an offer on the 2nd day after the listing.  That offer fell through due to financing and a few other problems but in spite of those problems, Margaret perservered and knocked out the interferences one by one and took care of each problem as it came along.  Margaret took all the worry from us as she covered every aspect of the sale and kept us in the loop the whole way.  We sold our proety and closed in less than 2.5 months.  If you want a thoroughly professional Realtor who will give it her all then Margaret's name belongs on your refrigerator."   Doug Friedman

"Margaret helped us find the home that was perfect for us.  She took the time to find out what we needed in a house and neighborhood.  She did a lot of leg work and helped us through the entire buying process.  We knew we could count on her.  Margaret has experience in almost every aspect of real estate making her a valuable resource whether you are buying, selling or involved with investment properties.  When any of our friends mention anything that involves real estate, we always tell them that we know the perfect Realtor for that."  Russell and Sarae

" Margaret Avery Moon is my favorite realtor.  She toook care of me from start to finish.  Her years of experience and expertise evoke trust and partnership.  She is pleasant to work with and provides top notch customer service and appreciation.  I will never consider any other realtor as long as there is Margaret."  Carrie Zamora

" I would like to commend Margaret Avery-Moon for the work she did in my endeavor to buy a property in Tucson, AZ.  She was knowledgeable, efficient and honest.  I knew all the costs up front and both the advantages and disadvantages of buying specific properties.  I bought a property and there were no surprises.  If I buy another property in Tucson, I will do it through Margaret Avery Moon.  She gets my highest recommendation."  Yours truly Albert I Berkowitz

Albert

"My partner and I chose Margaret Avery Moon because we both know her to be a woman of integrity in working with her in  areas other than real estate.  In working with Margaret in searching for and buying our home, we both discovered Margaret is a very perceptive and intuitive realtor as she found the perfect home for us in a very short amount of time.  She was also extremely responsive to the unpredictable demands of buying a home in the current market.  When changes were made, offers and counter-offers were completed in an extremely short amount of time.  Without her responsiveness, advice, and skill in negotiating in this very volatile market, I believe we would not have gotten the home we love and live in today.  I would recommend Margaret as a realtor for anyone without exception."  Yours truly, Richard Moon and NO I am not a relative, not even a distant one.

Richard

"I would definitely recommend Margaret Avery Moon.  She helped us buy a townhouse in the fall of 2011.  While looking at proeprties, putting in an offer, and during all of the bumps in the road that can occur during this process in the present economy, Margaret was helpful, reliable and responsible.  She also goes above and beyond what a client might expect in order to facilitate a transaction."  Ann

Margaret Avery Moon was very professional and very friendly. She was always available when I needed her. I would and have recommended her to others and will continue to do so. Selling my home through Long Realty was a very positive experience.

Beverly H

I'm very impressed that Margaret has continued to stand by my side even after the closing. There were some issues with the heater and a couple of other things, and she has been on top of that for me by contacting numerous parties to get it resolved.

Joseph J

We bought and sold our home through Margaret Avery Moon and I would highly recommend her. Very professional, she did an excellent job for us.

James &

Margaret Avery-Moon was the consummate professional. Her patience and commitment to serving our best interests throughout the process made our experience second to none. We can’t thank her enough!

Robert & Perianne Grignon

Margaret was very professional and great to work with. She was very responsive when I had questions and took care of things when I couldn’t since I don’t live in the area. She staged the house so it looked amazing and I’m certain that helped with the quick sale. Would definitely recommend Margaret Avery Moon!!

Dawn & Ronald Richmond

My husband and I couldn't be more satisfied and gratified by the caring, efficient and stress-free service by our realtor, Margaret Avery Moon. She was always available to answer our questions and keep us on track, so that there were no unnecessary delays. The entire process from professional photos, listing, viewings and cash sale went very smoothly. We were also very pleased by the efficient escrow process and everything coming together as scheduled. Thank you, Long Realty!
