What My Clients Have to Say
Our agent, Alicia Girard was excellent! My wife and I have purchased 9 homes in 37 years and thus have learned to appreciate a really good agent like Alicia. Real estate transactions are complicated and having an agent that is truly professional, prompt, and detail oriented is invaluable. Significantly, Alicia put our interests ahead of her own in that she continued to negotiate for a lower price rather than just closing the deal prematurely which would have assured her a quick commission. Instead she kept advocating for us and saved us an additional two or three thousand. Also, unlike our earlier home purchases in which we were purchasing in areas we knew well, we came to the northwest Tucson area (Casas Adobes, Oro Valley, Marana) as out-of-towners with limited time. She listened well enough, and knew the area well enough, to know what we would like and not waste time on “no way” properties. We found Alicia by requesting a reference from our own excellent realtor in Grand Junction, Ron Sechrist of Bray Realty, and we have been very pleased with Alicia.
I can’t speak highly enough of Alicia. Her hard work, dedication, and compassion for her clients always shines. She is a true professional! You will be glad to have her on your side.
Alicia treated us so personally that we felt secure with the whole process. She became a good friend we could go to with many questions. We would recommend her to everyone.
I had the pleasure of buying my little Tucson home with Alicia as my real estate agent. She always made me feel important to her and was never frustrated by my restrictions and needs. She also helped me through the loan process and was on call for my endless questions. She ALWAYS returned my phone calls and she has now become a wonderful new friend! I highly recommend her services. I am sure you will be satisfied.
We were looking for a retirement home in Tucson, while living in Denver. Alicia made the online home reviews, multiple showings when we visited Tucson, and the long distance closing process very smooth. Listened to what we were looking for instead of what she wanted to sell. Overall, a very professional and pleasant experience and we bought a home we love!
Alicia is the best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with (out of 6 home purchases in 4 states). She’s extremely knowledgeable, informative, patient, and thoughtful. She negotiated a great deal for us when we bought our home in Oro Valley and we felt completely comfortable, confident, and supported throughout the process. I even sent my parents to her to buy and sell their home, with fantastic results in both transactions. I recommend Alicia Girard to EVERYONE.
Alicia was a great help in all the ups and downs of selling my house and buying a new one. She was very good at setting up inspections, doing follow-up and comps and making moving day happen. Highly recommend her.
Alicia is one of the most customer-centric and engaging realtors I have worked with. When we moved to Arizona, Alicia helped us purchase our home and made it a seamless and delightful experience for us. When you are going through a real estate transaction, there are so many variables and moving parts with multiple individuals involved in the end to end transaction. So, minor challenges and delays have a high probability to keep you up at night during the process. What you need is a realtor who gives you a “Complete confidence” that you are in safe hands and that “She’s got it”. That’s Alicia for you! She was proactive, passionate, empathetic, agile and caring. Just in the first 5 mins after you meet Alicia, you will understand her passion and love for what she does! Our next home purchase is a few years away but we already have our realtor identified…..It’s Alicia!!
Alicia works extremely hard for her clients and is a very good negotiator . I would not think of buying a house without her!
Alicia was fantastic in helping us purchase our home in Tucson. While we have owned our home for over a year now, we still reach out to her for suggestions in finding people for changes we wish to make in our house or for maintenance items in the home. We are relocating to Tucson permanently and rely on her help in locating trustworthy contractors/companies. Alicia has twice replied and assisted us while on vacation. I would wholeheartedly recommend Alicia for ALL your real estate needs.
Great experience, Professional, pays attention to details I appreciate that! She has great resources when selling your home when whatever is needed on a time deadline! Thanks Alicia for selling our home and finding our new one!
My husband and I had a terrific experience with Alicia. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable about real estate. I recommend Alicia highly and will enlist her services any time we need to buy or sell a home. We were very blessed to find her. Alicia worked very hard for us and we got the home we wanted, at the price we wanted. Thank you Alicia!!!
Fabulous! We highly recommend Alicia Girard at Long Realty in Oro Valley, Arizona. This is the second time Alicia fulfilled our needs in selling and finding our home. First time was a move for convenience, the second our home for retirement! Our home sold in 4 days… that says it all!!!
