Specialties and certifications Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS); represents properties at all price points with special expertise in luxury, golf and Catalina Foothills properties; member of Long Realty’s Chairman’s Club; ranked in the top 1% to 2% percent of all REALTORS® nationally and locally.
A strong business background is a tremendous asset in real estate. During a 25-year executive career I worked in health care, education and public policy, overseeing multimillion-dollar budgets, marketing teams, advertising, operations, contract negotiations and business development.
I am the President of the Board for Flecha Caida Homeowners Association since 2017. It is one of the largest communities in Tucson. Importantly – it is in the Tucson foothills and comprised of over 500 homes. My experience in real estate covers a lot of territory. Besides being a full-time REALTOR® since 2003, I’m an investor, too. I can help you find the best properties and negotiate the best sales or purchase price.
Like most REALTORS®, I’ve helped clients in special ways. Once I made possible a closing on Christmas Eve, to conclude a transaction in which absolutely everything that could go wrong had done just that. What a nice thing to celebrate! Friends say I’m dedicated, compassionate, intelligent, upbeat, generous, kind, hardworking and fun to be with. But don’t take their word for it—my clients agree. Here’s an excerpt from one testimonial: “We were admittedly difficult clients in the sense that we had moved almost 2,000 miles with very high expectations and little understanding of the Tucson market. . . . We had to put complete faith and trust in Deidre, which we did without hesitation. And she delivered.”
As a native Tucsonan, I have deep knowledge of our delightful city. I remember childhood vacations on Mt. Lemmon, and I used to hang out with Ted DeGrazia and his family (they were our closest neighbors). Not many REALTORS® can say that.
I went into real estate to make good use of all my strengths: consulting and teaching, contract negotiation, marketing, project management and client service. I value integrity above all else, and my commitment to my clients never wavers. Please get in touch; I’d welcome the opportunity to show what I can do for you!
