Guide to buying a home near University of Arizona campus in Tucson

Thinking about buying a home near the University of Arizona?

I help many families each year buy and sell 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.
