“We enlisted the help of Nick to purchase a condo to use as a rental property. This is our first rental and he was very helpful in showing us around Tucson and providing various options for us to consider.

We met several times over the course of three months and he always made himself available to  work around my schedule as I traveled to Tucson. He was also very helpful during the negotiation process, and helped in ensuring all parts of the inspection report were addressed. He even went out on his own time several points after closing when the seller still had to supply proof of repairs.

He truly looked out for us. Even after the sale, he is helpful in providing contractor contacts and local information as we seek renters now. We will utilize him for future real estate needs in the Tucson area.”

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.
