As an Arizona Real Estate Broker for 25 years and Realtor for 30, I'm proud to have helped clients realize their dreams and achieve their personal goals. I am also an Accredited Buyer's Representative. As both Realtor and Broker, my real estate experience is broad - from helping Arizonans buy and sell their homes, to administering the business office for other top sellers, to helping builders sell new homes. I believe buying or selling a home is one of the most exciting and thrilling events many people experience, but it can also be a time of overwhelming stress and costs when every minute and every penny counts.

I am also excited to be part of Long Realty Company, blending state-of-the-art real estate information and technology with outstanding, undeniable service and value. My business partner, Ivy Pingy, and I extend these resources through seamless cooperation and coordination. We use these tools to handle the details and smooth the way for our clients so that they can concentrate on enjoying the process and saving money! We believe in building relationships with our clients, one home at a time.

I've lived in Tucson for 28 years, raising a family and developing a close connection to my community. I served on my kid’s PTA boards when they were young, and have been a board member of the Educational Enrichment Foundation which serves the students and teachers of the Tucson Unified School District for more than 10 years. I also now serve on the board of directors for NPHUSA, Southwest Region - an organization established to care for children in Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean. I believe that strong communities help families thrive, and having a home of one's own can provide a solid foundation.

Client Reviews

we were 100% satisfied with Stephanie and Ivy. Very professional, yet so friendly. Sincere advisories were timely and on target. Stephanie so clearly understands the housing market. She has contacts that were excellent also. I give her the highest recommendation!

We originally contacted Stephanie because we thought we were going to buy a house here in Tucson. Coming from Los Angeles, we really had no idea about what area we might like, but we did have certain criteria. Four bedrooms, 3-car garage, in a neighborhood where the houses weren't separated with walls but rather by saguaros. We set up our "scouting day" and once we got to town, Stephanie took us all over Tucson, showing us the houses she'd found that she thought we might like. She was right – many were beautiful. Ultimately, we decided to buy land and build a home instead, and Stephanie easily switched gears, helping us find a lot and close the deal. She even helped us get needed documents from the city (such a help since we were so far away). We can't say enough about how dedicated and professional she was; about how warm and funny she was, and is. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Steph was exceptional. Always returned calls and was on top of everything. We couldn't have been happier.

Stephanie Friend was a positive, patient and proactive person in helping us find our forever home. She went above and beyond duty to help us with any questions/concerns and always made herself available when we wanted to come in town (Sometimes at the spur of the moment) to look at homes. Also, she was there every step of the way when going through the buying, building and closing process. For example, she came with me to the color center to help pick out tile and carpet. I will highly recommend her to my friends and family if they are in search of a home in the Arizona area.
