Dedication. That single word defines my approach to every aspect of real estate: Dedication to the process, dedication to the sale, and most importantly, dedication to the client. I have a deep and abiding love of people, and what better place to put that passion to work than helping people make one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives?

I see real estate not as a problem to solve, but as an adventure to undertake. In my previous career as a school counselor, my success hinged on my communication skills. I see my career in real estate as the next step in making the most of what I learned there. Today, I am proud to say that I have a strong foundation in advising and guidance that serves me extremely well as a REALTOR®. I won't just be your point of contact throughout the home buying and selling process—we will form a collaborative partnership that prioritizes your unique needs and keeps your best interests in mind. You can expect clear communication and expert advice augmented by Long Realty's cutting-edge technologies and up-to-date market information.

When I'm not working, I enjoy activities that make the most of Tucson's beautiful desert landscape, such as hiking, trail running, and spending time outdoors with my animal companions. I am also a practitioner of yoga and a foodie who is always up for discovering a great new spot to grab a bite. Good thing Tucson is full of them!

Tucson is an easygoing and friendly place that I'm proud to have called home for over twelve years. After I relocated here from Chicago, I never looked back. No matter your background, I'm confident you can fall in love with Tucson just like I did once we find you a place to call "home." It would be my pleasure to be your guide along the way, so please don't hesitate to give me a call today!

Client Reviews

First off, we would like to say that we are not new to buying and selling real estate. Between us, we have bought and sold at least forty properties including Arizona, California, Florida, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, and even Beaune, France. So, we have worked with many real estate agents over many years. We rate Sarah Hoover to be one of, if not the best, real estate agents we have ever worked with. When we met Sarah, she was new to real estate. She told us. But she was not inexperienced in working with people, that was obvious. Her maturity, intelligence and professionalism won our confidence immediately and we were excited to be among her first clients. Our situation wasn’t easy. We chose a property which turned out to be a short sale, and a difficult one at that, as it was an unfinished home. Throughout the buying process Sarah was proactive, organized, thorough, honest, and always made us her priority. She helped us navigate through the buying process of a short sale, getting all of our questions answered timely. If she didn’t have an answer, she would research it until she did. When we decided at the eleventh hour that the property wasn’t right for us, she unraveled that offer and navigated us through the purchase of the next property we chose. At this point the schedule was tight – she had already helped us sell our existing home. It had sold quickly and was set to close within weeks. Miraculously, both properties closed on the same day without a hitch. She had done the work, always leaving us with a sense that everything would be okay – and it was. That’s a great real estate agent! We give Sarah Hoover our highest recommendation. She is professional, positive, thorough, proactive, knowledgeable, and an absolute joy to work with.-James & Barbara Halterman

We could not have asked for a better agent when selling our home. From the very beginning Sarah took the time to educate us on the complete home selling process and answer all questions that arose. The information she provided gave us a clear idea of what to expect each step of the way. Her communication and attention to detail ensured that we continuously felt informed and well represented. She made it priority to ask for input and in each instance valued our feedback. Sarah worked diligently and served as a partner throughout this process. We are so grateful for all of her hard  work!  -  Alex & Breanne Ochoa

Working with Sarah Hoover and Faye Gandolfi on the recent purchase of a home was a completely positive experience. I initially contacted Faye after seeing her sign and explained that I was out of town and that my daughter had seen her sign as she lived next door. Even thought the house had not been placed on MLS she was willing to let my daughter see it. Faye explained that she did not do dual representation and turned me over to Sarah who could not have been more accommodating, handling the transaction long distance. My husband and I returned early from our vacation so we could be present for the inspections Sarah had arranged. Both women are extremely professional, knowledgeable and personable and following the closing on the home we purchased are looking forward to continuing the relationship as they work to sell our current home.
