I help many families each year sell and buy homes near the University of Arizona. Sometimes I’m working with families of new undergrad students, sometimes for grad students, sometimes for university staff looking for a home close to their employer, and often times for folks looking to live closer to the amenities that the university/downtown Tucson area offers. As a UA alumnus, I have first-hand knowledge of the campus and areas around the university.
