Downsizing? Moving up? Looking for investment property? Welcome to my website. As an associate broker with Long Realty I represent both real estate buyers and sellers for RESIDENTIAL RESALE properties in the metro Tucson area in southern Arizona.

Because I have been on call to perform Brokers Price Opinions for three banks over the years, I am very good, very skilled, and very quick to give homeowners a realistic idea of their property value before they put their home up for sale. Because I am an avid and skilled photographer and have a background in creative graphic design and layout, I confidently promise clients stunning, eye-catching photos of their home. Because I studied in Austria and worked in Germany for a couple of years, I am capable of assisting German-speaking clientele. One of my talents is to have fun amidst the many pressures associated with a real estate transaction. Let's enjoy ourselves for goodness sakes! Keep smiling, blessed one.

On the personal side: I grew up in Grosse Pointe MI and graduated from the University of Notre Dame which included a year of study at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. After I graduated from college, I returned to Europe and worked in Hamburg, Germany, for a while. My interests are diverse and varied: I am a hiker, a photographer, a baritone, a rockhound, a gardener, and I love to play the card game Skat with German friends. And I absolutely LOVE to play pickleball! I am the USAPA District Ambassador for Southern Arizona, Mexio, and Costa Rica. Lastly, I am on the Board of Directors of the Notre Dame (Alumni) Club of Tucson. Go Irish!!

Client Reviews

Relocating across the country can be an overwhelming task. Lucky for me, I was referred to Tom Starrs of Long Realty. He truly listened to what I was looking for and went the extra mile in every area. Not only did he communicate frequently before I had even arrived but he even went out and took extra pictures of the homes I liked through the internet. When I became frustrated or anxious during the process he was always a calming force and his positive attitude became contagious. After a 1.5-year process he did what he promised - he found me my dream home and continues to be of service to me - he has helped me find whatever I need whether it is a handyman or a great place to eat. He has made the transition of moving across the country so simple and pleasurable and I am grateful he has been a part of the process and that I can also call him a friend. 


I would highly recommend Tom Starrs with Long Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell Real Estate. Not only is he an upbeat, positive individual, but a true professional. Tom knows the real estate business from top to bottom, and our experience with him was one of complete safety and confidence knowing that he was handling our affairs. He is conscientious, hard working, punctual, and always has a great sense of humor. It truly was great working with him.  We trust him completely.
