No two client experiences are the same. My goal for each and every person I work with is to listen to their needs and tailor my plan to reach a positive outcome on their specific goal, all the while providing the best service and creating a lasting impression. With my background in data management and having studied engineering in college, I have superior attention to detail. My clients benefit from my ability to calculate risk, identify the value in properties while working through situations and delivering on-time results. I have also completed my Accredit Buyer’s Representative® (ABR®), Graduate, REATLOR® Institute (GRI) and am working towards my Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation.

I have called Tucson home for over 5 years, and had previously been a seasonal visitor from Seattle since 1978. While living in Seattle, my family renovated properties which helped give me an introduction into the world of real estate. My brother is also a Broker in Seattle, who has been in the business for over 30 years and encouraged me to continue my career here after selling in Seattle. This gives me a unique understanding to the needs of relocating and the difference between locations. One of my biggest accomplishments in real estate is my ability to help all my clients (even those long distance) and to provide them with exceptional service through my clear communication and success in navigating challenges.

One of the greatest joys of living in the desert is how easy it is for me to live an active lifestyle… running, hiking through the Catalina Mountains and mountain biking through the desert landscape - I love it all! (Although I do miss boating from my Pacific Northwest days.) I also spend my free time learning more about fashion and design and working on renovation projects. I try to travel as often as I can, learning and understanding different cultures and behaviors. If you have any questions at all about real estate, I invite you to call me.

We had a wonderful experience with Melissa Gill. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She would always go the "extra mile" to make sure everything was done correctly. We felt she always had our best interest in mind when we were with her. I highly recommend her to anyone.

We were 100% satisfied with our land purchase experience with Melissa and Long Realty. Melissa's attention to detail and her communication throughout the process was excellent. Melissa was diligent about keeping us informed about this particular property over several years as it progressed toward the eventual listing. With patience and persistence we eventually settled on acceptable terms of sale. Melissa helped in providing us with the right contacts to complete our feasibility studies. We have experienced in many real estate ventures and this one was complicated with multiple title and land issues. With good information and council were confident with our decision to move forward in closing this sale. We thank Melissa providing all her great communication and assistance. We would highly recommend her professional services to others. Joyce and Scott Anderson
