Thank you for helping us through our first house-buying experience! We really appreciate everything you've done for us.

Dottie and I would like to express our thanks for such a skillfull and competent procedure in selling our house in Oro Valley. We have worked with several realtors over the years, but none of our agents were as dedicated and knowledgable. Don's negotiation skills saved us $10,000 and he has the insight to achieve a number of advantages we had not considered. We both felt he was representing our best interestes and not just present to tuen over another house.Thank gain for a great job! 

Tom a

We want to extend our deepest appreciation fro all the little things you took care of for us. Your persistence and patience helping to finalize our purchase did not go unnoticed. We are glad to have had you as our realors, and also as our new friends.  A heart-felt thank you!

Doug a

Just wanted to let you know what a great job you both did on the sale of our existing homes and the purchase of our new home. You were extremely helpful during this entire process. You gave us incredible contacts that helped make our existing home bring in a premium price, and you worked with the realtor on our new home to get us in at a price we felt comfortable with. Overall, your direct efforts resulted in over $36,000 of extra cash in our pocket. Extraordinary performance!Not only do you "know your stuff", but you are both very personable and that makes it a genuine pleasure to work with you. We have dealt with several realtors over the years, and you are one of the few who we totally trust. You were truly focused on our issues and concerns, and worked with us to resolve them as they arose. You did a phenomenal job in both these regards.Frank and Linda

Don Vallee is a very good realtor. I think what impressed us the most was his willingness to listen to what we wanted. He allowed us to guide the whole buying process. He was never pushy and showed us only the houses we wanted to see and in our case it had to be over 200. He responded to our  phone calls and emails immediately. If he was unavailable he made sure one of his other agents responded. The Vallee Gold Team worked hard on our behalf and I would highly recommend them.


As first-time home buyers, we were not sure what to expect. From the very first phone call, Kathy mase me feel comfortable. She explained the process and offered her qualifiactions and experience which immediately put me at ease. Kathy and her husband Don work as a team and with the combination of their attetnion to detail adn availability, they made our expereince seamless. Kathy was always willing and able to discuss and explain any questions or concerns we had. She was a step ahead, giving us an understanding of how we should proceed through the process. As a novice, it is imperative to have a Realtor with expereince and working knowledge of the ever-changing real estate market. Kathy provided us with out standing service and an up-to-date academic know-how- fro oour needs. We are pleased and proud to have worked with The Vallee Gold Team and would recommend them to anyone, from first-time homebuyers to seasoned homeowners.

Kathy you were very patient and accomodating to our needs and whims. You gave us information and very good advise. And so, after many months and many condos, we found a really good match.  Yohelped us find an extremely thoruough hme inspector, who was able to track down some majjor problems. It was you who helped coordinate the massive repair jobs which needed completion prior to close of excrow. It all came together beautifully, because you worked diligently fro us during thiose last two weeks.


We've moved four states in the last 10 years...this was our easiest, most efficient and carefree transaction ever! Kathy and Don are communicative, hard working, and accessible. They were even there for us after the move!

Don and his team were exemplary! He worked well with us and was very knowledgeable about his business. Not only did he work hard to help us find a house suited to our needs and situation, the follow up after completion of the signing was above and beyond the call of duty. We will be having them  over for dinner after we're all settled in. I highly recommend them.


I have had an incredible experience with the Vallee Gold Team on both the buying and selling side of real estate. Don and Kathy made us feel valued and important. Our home seemed to be their first priority, even though they have many listings. Kathy was always available to answer any questions or  concerns that we had during the process. She was an incredible resource to help us understand the process and coach us through negotiations. I would highly recommend Don and Kathy as realtors for any purchasing or selling needs.


We were out of town buyers, and we made a couple whirlwind trips to Tucson to look at property. Our agent, Sonia Stamatopolous, arranged to show us a range of neighborhoods and home styles so we could get a feel for the area, inventory, and pricing, which helped us narrow our search to 3 zip  codes. She also set up an online tool that automatically sent us listings matching our criteria, which enabled us to continue looking while we were back at home. We found that she was easy to communicate with using texting and email, which suited us so that we didn't have to play phone tag. Sonia was also very responsive when dealing with info needed by the lender, and in arranging for the inspections.


We have bought and sold many homes over the past 25 years and our experience with the Vallee team is the best ever. Their attention to detail and the level of professionalism is superb. I would recommend them to anyone.


I had the opportunity to work with Don and Kathy during our recent home search in Tucson. My wife and I are relocating from Virginia and were looking for a home to fit our unique needs. Kathy kept us informed of the latest properties available in preparation of our house hunting visit and  skillfully coordinated numerous showings during our limited time in town. We were successful in finding a beautiful home that we will enjoy for a long time at the right price. Throughout the process they asked the correct questions and provided us the guidance to make informed decisions. Coordination of the various inspections and associated documentation was handled with precision. Don and Kathy are extremely knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a home in the Tucson area.


Our house is successfully closed yesterday. From start, Don has been very professional. He priced the house so accurate that we sold it at full price as listed. He has been very responsive to all the questions I have. And he has a great network of service people that can help us during the process.  Unlike some agents, he didn't push us to repair this, upgrade that. He only pointed to the essentials that we can take care of without putting too much upfront. Therefore, overall, we highly recommend Don Valley and his group. Other members in his team that we dealt with are also very helpful. Overall, this is very pleasant experience.

Kathy and her team invested many hours into helping my husband and I buy a home. We are a young couple and were relocating to Tucson from across the country, and Kathy worked with us for months from long distance until we found exactly what we were looking for. She was professional and thoughtful  as she helped us understand the market in the area and the home-buying process in Tucson. In addition, she connected us with other professionals in the area whenever we needed things, and we never felt pressured as we searched. Kathy spent hours working with us even though we had a small budget, and we ended up finding a home well below what we expected to pay. In fact, we felt like our needs were more important to her than making a sale, and I have the sense she treats all of her clients with similar care. We will be calling her again if we ever buy a new home!

Kathy Vallee ensured my satisfaction with the home-buying process by going above and beyond every step of the way. She is knowledgeable, assertive, patient, and follows through. Kathy and Don Vallee, plus the Vallee Gold Team, earned my business. Let them earn yours; you will be glad you did!


Don and his associate Rayma were available to my unexpecte schedules. Rayma was gracious and knowledgable. We have every confidence that Don and Rayma has our best interst in mind. The daily email updates and target account provide easy access and communication for a hectic lifestye.


Kathy Vallee was extraordinary. My home was listed with another agency and the property was not moving. I had given my agent two weeks' notice. As well, I had already relocated to Phoenix and was clearly anxious to sell my home in Sahuarita. After conversations with others, I received a  recommendation from a local (Phoenix) commercial real estate agent to call Kathy because "she gets it done."During the initial telephone call, I could tell that Kathy was the person to whom I needed to turn. Kathy connected with me right away. She understood my concerns and did her homework before calling me with advice. Kathy was diligent about returning phone calls - even though it meant calling after 7:00 PM. We developed a game plan that included using the services of a professional to properly stage the house, developing stronger marketing materials, and an approach to expand/target the right buying demographic for the home.I was frantic and dealing with Kathy had me feeling "rescued." We did not have a chance to go further as my agent came up with a buyer at the last minute. NEVERTHELESS, the way in which Kathy provided support was professional, confident, and had me wishing that I had gone to her first.

Sharon S

My husband and I have been dealing with Kathy and Don for the past 5-6 years. We have successfully bought 2 condo's and a house with the help of their expertise. They are both very professional and two of the kindest people I know. Tucson has become a second home for us and a big part of our love  of the desert has been through many hours over the years spent with Don and Kathy.......we consider them our friends!! Look no further.......go with The Valle Team!! I also have to mention how wonderful Liane is........she has gone above and beyond to help us as well!!


We purchased a home with the Vallee Gold team this past year and had the best experience ever. Their responsiveness and professionalism were top shelf. Both Kathy and Don responded within minutes of our calls and their knowledge of the Tucson market and neighborhoods were stellar. We recommend  that you call them when buying or selling a home or property as they will provide excellent customer service.


Kathy and Don have helped me buy two homes and sell one. They are an excellent team and provided the right amount of personal and professional attention to my every need during the stressful yet exciting process of buying and selling homes, expecially during these times. I would strongly recommend  them to all Tucson home owners and buyers...both new and seasoned.

Cathy R

Don and Kathy Vallee are the leaders when it comes to all things real estate. They are exceptional negotiators with a constant plan to meet their clients' wants and needs. Their attention to detail and market knowledge is unsurpassed. I highly recommend them.

Debbie B

Don sold my home on Tucson. Home had been on market for many months before I hired him. Original realtors were not successful in generating any traffic. Once I listed the home with Don the home sold in 20 days. Customer service was excellent. Great follow through. Great team he has developed. Would not hesitate to use his services again. 

Michelle I

We have used Don and Kathy to sell and buy homes in Tucson and, for us, there is no better team of RE professionals to consider. They are at the top of their game with marketing, client response, inspections, and making sure each transaction is flawless with all questions answered. We imposed our  last transactions on them from out of state over Thanksgiving and Christmas (yuck) but Kathy made us feel like we were the center of her holiday season. We happily refer them to everyone we know and will continue to do.


Kathie, was an excellent real estate agent. Very through, knowledgeable, great personality and a very hard worker. She listed my home and then sold it, which I will forever be so very grateful to her for all of her hard work.


We worked specifically with Don's colleague, Katy Vallee and Kristine Galvine. She was always reachable and quickly responded to any and all of our questions, regardless of how trivial. Kristine went above and beyond for us- we lived out of state during our entire inspection period, so Kristine made all of our  inspection appointments and personally supervised every walk through and inspection on our behalf. She even took measurements around the house per our request.

Anne I

Don and his staff did an excellent job selling our home in 10 days from listing and negotiating with the other agent and sellers to get us the price we wanted. Many homes in this area were on the market for months and some have still not sold. Having an agent like Don Vallee and his team makes the  experience easy and rewording to all. He sold us our first home and also help us find our new home. Thank you Don and team.

The Vallee's have been in town for many, many years and truly know the real estate market like few others. Due to an unexpected move, they were able to quickly sell my land and home for as much as I could have hoped for in the down real estate market. They really take care of their clients.


Don and Kathy Vallee are top notch professionals in their field. My wife and I used them as our agents a few years ago and they were excellent in all things real estate. It is very impressive how they listen to the clients individual needs and research to find the perfect home. They are very  progressive and up to date with their statistics and multiple listing service knowledge. We will definitely use them in the future and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.


Over the years I have worked with many Realtors. Don Vallee is undoubtedly the best so far. I hope to have the pleasure of working with him on other transactions in the future as he is a man that takes a problem and just solves it. No problem seems too big for Don and his good nature is a big part of that.

Lles W

The Vallee Gold team is wonderful.Many times I was out of town and they would go and preview properties for me, on several occasions. I was looking for a specific property, so it was not easy and time consuming. They have been so willing to work with me for a few years to find this special property,never giving up.They took the time to understand exactly what was needed, which included walking the property and taking measurements. I would highly recommend this team, it is enjoyable to work with them. They put their heart and soul into assisting their clients.


I worked with the Vallee Gold team. They were great! She responded to every text, email, and call with in 15 minutes, every time, no matter the time of day or day of the week. She listened to what I was looking for and spent 3 months helping me find it. We saw well over 30 houses  (upon my request). She did not hesitate to re-arrange her schedule to fit mine. She was a pleasure to work with. If by chance she absolutely wasn't available someone else from the team stepped in and knew exactly what was going on and there was no delay in service. She even brought a very thoughtful house warming gift after the closing. If you are looking for a house I would definitely recommend the Vallee Gold team.

Amanda C

First class! Don and his staff were/are amazing. I put Don through the ringer and he was more than professional and patient. Thank you Don. I am very honored and please to give you the best possible recommendation.

Tim S

Don did a great job for us! Selling one's home is a hard thing to do. Don was very knowledgeable and patient in helping us make the decision. Once we decided to sell, Don and his team dove right in, and got us listed and on the market. Most importantly, he got quick results. Good job Don! 

Ted B

Don and Kathy came to my rescue in all the right ways. I lived in my little house for 15 years and needed smart, sensible people to help me prepare and sell my home. They arrived with just what I needed -sound advice and a list of helpful people. Kathy’s first rule was to make it “Clean, clean,  clean” and Don advised me to clear out as much as possible because “space sells”. Apparently these wise people know their business inside and out because the house had 2 offers only 5 days after listing! Don deciphered the real estate jargon for me when we accepted an offer then drove out of his way to meet me at home for pertinent signatures. When it came time for settlement, both were at the table offering anything needed, including a huge basket of goodies! Don and Kathy are the best combination of business professionalism and just plain good people. Thank you so much! L


Very knowledgeable and caring person. Went well beyond what would be expected from start to finish. Still stays in contact making sure everything is still fine. Would highly recommend him for any of your real estate wants and needs. 

Dennis R

My husband and I have been working with Don Vallee for about two years to find us a home in Tucson, relocating from the Los Angeles area. Don's patience, understanding and expertise guided us through this daunting time of anxiety, frustration and ultimately finding the perfect new home for us to settle into. I can't think of a better person than Don to have worked with during this time.

Barbara a

Just wanted to let everybody who reads this that Don Vallee is one of the most trusted and knowledgeable realtors I have had the pleasure to meet. We came to Tucson not knowing the area or anybody. Don took great care in showing us what kind of property that would meet our needs and wants. He had everything done in advance of us meeting him. He picked us up at our hotel and showed us around the Oro Valley area so we could get a feel for it. He made us very comfortable about our purchase of our new home. If this was Trip Adviser, Don Valle would get 5 Stars all day long. Thanks Don. 

Stephan S

I have worked with this team and they are very knowledgable and competant about real estate. They are always available whenever I had questions or needed to get in touch with them. Very hard workers!


Very few Realtors® are in the same league as the Vallee Team! I’ve been fortunate to have worked with Don and Kathy professionally, over the past six years. This time, around, however, my wife and I were the buyers, and naturally chose Don and Kathy to represent us.  As a powerful team, they were tenacious about finding the perfect home for us --- including resale properties and newly constructed homes --- to accommodate our growing family. Their knowledge of the current housing market gave us a clear picture as to the particular community in which we wanted to live and the benefits of its location and amenities regarding future resale opportunities.  Their negotiating skills are unequalled and saved us thousands of dollars in obtaining additional incentives, regarding the closing costs involved. Many people believe that they’ll get a better deal buying a home directly from the site sales person, instead of finding a qualified agent to represent them.  That may be the case for some ill-advised buyers who haven’t met the Vallees!  I have gladly referred other members of my family and friends to them for their buying and selling needs and will continue to do so. Don and Kathy are our Realtors® for life! We couldn't be happier with the service and care we received from Kathy and Don and the rest of the Vallee Gold team.  Our home needs were very specific and required a challenging close date.  Don supported us the entire journey, always representing our interests.  If you have a challenging situation and need a realtor to go the extra mile - we highly recommend Don and rest of the Vallee Gold team. 

Michelle a

I have been very impressed with the knowledge, expertise, and professionalism that Don and Kathy have shown us while working with them. They made us feel comfortable as soon as we met them. They truly listen and care. Never once did I feel like they were pushy or not taking our concerns seriously.  After seeing many homes, Kathy informed me of one coming on the market. She knew exactly what I was looking for and needless to say it was the one we ended up purchasing. Don did a great job negotiating prices and we were very satisfied with the final price we ended up paying. I would highly recommend Don and Kathy to anyone looking for a kind, compassionate and knowledgeable team to help them buy or sell a home. Thank you both, Bobbi and Joe


We cannot thank you enough for your patience and dedication in finding us a new home! It was al lot of fun just looking around and you made us feel very comforatable with the whole process of buying a house. We felt like you were really looking out for us, which we really needed.

Joe a

Don and Kathy Vallee were great start to finish. They had a high end group of realtors meet at our house before it hit MLS and this resulted in immediate showings with two offers and a sale in four days. This was end of summer, a dead time in Tucson. Hot selling time is Feb. 1, but we had another  house lined up and needed to move. Great brochure and a first in AZ with a 3D tour of house and it's own web site. These folks are PRO's. Plus after sale support is terriffic! Any calls were instantly returned, no hanging waiting. No issue was skirted. We used them to handle our end of a "sale by owner" and that went great also! Dynamite team, glad I chose them.l

The S

Cannot say enough about Don Vallee. Don worked very hard to find my husband and I a place to call home. Don took the time to understand what it was we wanted to show us homes comparable to what we asked for to not waste time and I respected that about him. Not only after we found what we wanted he helped in every step through closing to make the home owners experience something to truly celebrate. Don will treat you like family and go the extra mile. 

Brenda P

Don Vallee is an excellent realtor and a gentleman. He is perceptive, responsible and extremely hard working, putting the wishes and needs of his clients ahead of all else, except his family. And, he always gets back to you promptly, going above and beyond to resolve any problems or issues that inevitably arise during real estate transactions. He's an A++ realtor and a genuinely nice person. You can't do better.

Ann B

Don Vallee and his team at Long Realty did a fantastic job selling my mother's home in Tucson. As I live in Chicago and was handling the sale of her home remotely, I needed a professional in whom I could trust and rely. Don and his team were always responsive, always professional and handled all aspects of the sale with tremendous skill. I recommend them without reservation.

Ned L

The experience of buying a house, although exciting can be somewhat stressful; Don Vallee made our experience truly enjoyable. Anytime that we hit a snag Don would go out of his way to fix the problem. Don's goal seems to be to ensure that his clients spend their time being excited about their new purchase instead of being stressed. Don Vallee was a pleasure to work with. 

Doug &

The Vallee Team has been selling us homes for over 13 years. Trusted and dependable this team will work with you through any situation that may arise. As buyers and sellers Don is consistently available on short notice and has always had a solution to a problem. I trust Don completely with our homes the content and the transactions. We honestly could not have found a better Realtor and friend. Don has extreme integrity and is well connected in the community. If you are looking for a Realtor who knows the market,communities, and contractors for just about anything you must call Don Vallee. Don will go above and beyond the scope of his job to ease the stress of moving.

Helge A

Don and Kathy,We were very happy and pleased during the listing, sale, and escrow closing of our home. With your guidance we were able to procure a qualified buyer and finalize an offer to purchase quickly. Your knowledge of the market and appropriate suggestions were spot on. We are moving forward with the next phase of our lives, and you were part of that.Thanks again for the outstanding service! 

Linden a

Don was my agent for my recent move to the Tucson area from out of state. Don knows the area so well I knew we were in great hands. Don knows all of the neighborhoods inside and out. He has a very good contact list of trusted service providers that he puts at your disposal. Don was able to quickly assess our needs and show us properties according to our schedule. I really can't express what a smooth experience it was working with Don and his team. I can say that I would recommend him and his team without hesitation to anyone looking for a permanent or rental property in the Tucson area. Work with Don, you will not be disappointed! 

Elizabeth G

We had an excellent experience with The Vallee Gold Team. They are experts in the area where we were looking. We were able to find our perfect house within a week of looking with Don. Don and Kathy are responsive, professional and very experienced. I would recommend them highly to anyone looking to  move to the area or looking to move within the area.


The Vallee Gold team were a joy. They were quick to response to our every request and used very professional sub contractors for pictures, repairs, etc. We would highly recommend them for any real estate transactions.


Don and his wife Kathy did an excellent job on a rather complicated transaction. They worked with us for a long time until we finally got the home we wanted. We are very satisfied with there service.


Don and his team have been very responsive to our needs. He is always prompt in returning phone calls, keeping appointments, etc. Don's vast knowledge of the local real estate market shows in every aspect when dealing with him.


This team will call back within the hour, day or night, to answer any questions or concerns. As problems arose from our buyers, our team was right on it to correct the situation and keep the process moving forward as smoothly as possible.


Don Vallee and all the members of the Vallee Gold Team were absolutely indispensable to our property transactions. We particularly appreciated their clear and rapid responses to all communications. In addition, they were thoughtful, warm-hearted and emotionally supportive; while simultaneously  being firm and skillful during negotiations. We recommend the Vallee Gold Team without hesitation for any real estate transaction.


Don and his Gold Team were super. We had the privilege of working with both Don and Jennifer to sew up a fairly complicated deal. Yet, within a short amount of time we closed on the deal. Well done, GOLD TEAM!!!

Neal J

The Vallee Gold Team was professional and responsive. Don successfully assisted me in re-negotiating my sales contract when my house under-appraised, with a result that was a win-win for both sides. He was calm and steady, and quick with return calls. He was very smart in how he approached the  various situations that arose during the sale of my home. He communicated with me well, explaining his approach and offering excellent suggestions. His staff were wonderful as well. I couldn't be happier with my experience. I would gladly use them again.

Rebecca P

Cannot say enough about how well Don handled the purchase of our home. Highly responsive, consistently available, knowledgeable and experienced, and positive and upbeat in his work. He also has a stellar team that is supportive and professional all along the way. We would refer him to anyone  looking to buy or sell, hope we have the opportunity to "repay" him that way for his excellent service.


Don was great and helped us find the perfect house. He worked hard and helped us get the house we wanted for a fair price. His whole team was fantastic!!

Jeanne H

The Vallee Team did a great job representing us in the Sale of two properties recently. Outstanding responsiveness, top notch realty expertise. Highly recommended.

John A

Don Vallee has truly put together a professional team. From listing the home to final closing, every step was professional and logical. It made for a very smooth and comfortable experience. We would like to highly recommend the Vallee Gold Team to assist you in purchasing or selling your home.


Don Vallee and his associates helped us with good advice and market research to assure we obtained the quick sale we wanted. He recommended trades people to assist with repairs and staging prior to marketing. And he handled the price negotiations, resulting in a sales price we were happy with.   He is very responsive to any questions, usually getting back to me in less than an hour, whether it was on the weekend or weekday.


We first had contact with the Vallee Gold Team approximately 2 years prior to actively starting our search. We were planning a move to AZ, but due to circumstances beyond our control we were not able to make the move at that time. They stayed in touch with us during those two years and offered to  help us in any way they could if needed. The fact that they didn't give up on us meant a lot to us. Once we are able to plan a trip to AZ to house hunt, they worked with us prior to our visit to have homes set up for us to see since we were only going to be here for a few days. Don and Brenda did a great job selecting homes based on our needs and we found the perfect home for us. We couldn't be happier with the service that we received. Not only did we come out of this with a new home, we also gained new friends. I would highly recommend the Vallee Gold Team to anyone looking for a home or wanting to sell theirs

We were so fortunate to have found Don for our move to Tucson. As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. We didn't give him much warning on our arrival into town, and he rearranged his schedule to show us houses. During the closing he was a  huge asset in finding quality inspectors and contractors, as well as making sure details were taken care of in our absence. In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Don was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs. We would recommend him to anyone.


Our experience with Don Vallee and the Vallee team was a very professional and friendly experience. The marketing the firm put into place with photos, aerial filming , brochures, personal contact and many various forms of advertising sold our home when our home previously languished on the market  for close to a year. The follow through with each and every interested party was through and respective. We, without reservation, highly recommend Don, Kathy and the team to anyone wanting to sell their home. They earned every cent of their commission. Frank and Claudia Naughton

The N

We both bought and sold a home recently with Don and couldn't be happier to of had in in our corner. Both he and his team was extremely knowledgable and responsive. Although this a a stressful time, Don and his team stepped up when we needed and went above and beyond to be sure we had a good  experience. I would recommend Don to anyone buying or selling a home in southern Arizona.


This team kept me up to date on all issues. They helped ever stepbofvthe way and made this journey most enjoyable. They became almost like family before the whole experience was over.


We have worked with The Vallee Gold Team to sell 2 homes in Oro Valley over the last ten years. They are ethical, knowledgeable, focused and responsive. Their pictures presented the very best and most desirable features of our properties - invaluable for those searching online. The team's  thoughtful and personal attention to needs of both buyers and sellers achieved optimal sales outcomes for us. Kathy and Don were personally kind enough to help us prepare our home for sale while we were incredibly ill. They also helped us from 2400 miles away coordinate sale of the contents through an Estate Sale company without missing a beat processing the listing and handling the showings and sale. Our experience in 2017 was even better than our experience in 2007 which was great!


Over the years I've bought and sold several homes. The Vallee Gold Team is by far the best realty company I've worked with. I appreciated the informative material I received when starting the process and the continuing emails to update me. Whether sending an email, text, or making a telephone  call, the response was immediate. At Vallee Gold, they really work as a team and I enjoyed my interactions with those whom I had contact. Don Vallee even met me at the title company for the closing and contacted my home insurance company to verify the sale.


Don Vallee is by far the very best realtor we have ever had the privilege of working with! We were planning on relocating from Oregon, and we were so fortunate to find such a wonderful person to work with! He is so knowledgeable about the area and provided us with many great local contacts. He is  so patient, kind, and very expediently responsive to our myriad of questions, not only in person, but also calls, texts, and emails. He is the ultimate professional, as is Jennifer, and the rest of the Vallee Gold Team. There just aren't enough adjectives to describe how wonderful, professional, and courteous Don and his team are! They make purchasing a home so easy and explain the process very thoroughly. Without a doubt, we highly recommend Don and his team! Thank you Don, Kathy, Jennifer, and the rest of the team! We love our new home!

Marilyn was excellent and completed all paperwork in a very timely fashion. I would highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again!

Don helped me determine the right price to set and he marketed the home aggressively in the early days, leading to a solid offer for this otherwise difficult to sell home. Don kept in good communication with me at all times and he built my confidence. Long Realty seemed to approach my home with a team effort, as the showings were with Long realtors and the sale was with a Long buyer's agent. I appreciated that Long takes care of its own listings.

Steven & Joy Lautenschlaeger

Catherine Merrill

I hope everyone has the same experience that I had with working with your company. It was a pleasure Don!! I have your number saved for the future. Thank you for helping my family through our purchase process!!


Josh really took the time to help me out with selling the home quickly. I appreciated that he was always available to talk too and he contacted me regularly to keep me informed about what was going on with the home. I will definitely use him in the future as a real estate agent and Long Realty.

Marilyn Schultz is incredible. I showed interest in a property and had a couple of questions. 3 people got back with me. Marilyn was the only one that acknowledged and answered my questions. (The questions I had would determine if I in fact wanted to see the property in the first place) The others sent me a response that said: "When do you want to see the property?" Marilyn is an excellent mediater and always said "what do you think about..." instead of pushing an agenda. She is honest and fair which is very important to me, and was a dream to work with. Thank you, Marilyn! What a stress free. experience! You got a good one with Marilyn...hang on to her.

Sharon Kaiser

We would like to thank Marilyn Schultz for all time she spent with making our First home purchase truly a great experience. She took the time to walk us through the process and answer all of our questions. She was always available to us and worked with our work schedules. Thank you sooo much Marilyn you were Awesome!!! We would like to thank Janice Davis for helping us through the finances process as well. She took the time to answer our questions and help us secure the best finance option for us. Thank you sooo Janice you were Awesome!!!

Kevin & Wendy Ruhl

Jennifer is an excellent agent, very professional, she contacted us frequently and that was before we moved to Tucson. She was always available to show us properties. We decided to buy a 'new build' and she really shined with her knowledge. She helped us get a lower price with her negotiation skills. Long Realty is lucky to employ her and I consider her as a friend. Chris and Carol

We had owned our house for 20 years as an investment property. Our primary home was on the east coast but have spent a lot of time in Tucson. Don Vallee had sold a few properties in our remote neighborhood in West Tucson so when we decided to explore selling our place we had him over to the house for an initial meeting and a look. Something we liked right away, he was a very good listener. He heard what we had to say and then gave us some great suggestions on inexpensive upgrades that he thought would make the house more appealing and threw out a few impressive strategies on how he thought best to market our custom house. Even though we were not sure at the time when we were going to decide to put it on the market. We told him it could be as much as a year. That did not seem to phase his enthusiasm. In fact it was almost 2 years before we decided to pull the trigger. In that time Don would check in once every six months for a update but never pushy. In the few months before we were getting the house ready for sale Don was always available for questions and had solid recommendations of contractors or maintenance people if we needed one. When it came time to put the house on the market the Don Vallee team kicked in to gear. The photo and video presentation they designed for the house was a truly amazing. They used a drone for the video and some of the stills. This was a fantastic selling tool. They were also very hands on in explaining the process and made it so easy for us not being in Tucson. The house went on the market and was in contract after our first open house and we closed 4 weeks later. The whole process went super smooth and Don Vallee and his team were the upmost professionals. We would highly recommend them if you are selling your home!

Andrew Bernard

We worked with Brenda Weathers. Brenda listened to what we wanted and found us a nice property. She was easy to work with and very accommodating in scheduling tours of neighborhoods and visits to perspective properties. Brenda was excellent!

Robert Bewley

Brian Wilson and Andrea Balcher went "beyond the call of duty" to accommodate my special needs as a first-time Arizona home buyer and real estate investor. I look forward to purchasing more homes from either of them in the immediate future.

David Kanter

Katlyn was very knowledgable about the properties in this price range and areas we were searching. She was able to locate a great property in a good area which diversified our portfolio. She acted very quickly and structured the contract so that we could compete with any secondary offers. She coordinated and attended all of the inspections and vendor appointments for estimates for all repairs identified by the inspection. We appreciate all of her efforts.

Jon & Susan Grass

Jamie Rodriguez was excellent during our house sale always available and was able to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend Jamie and if I ever need a realtor again I will be contacting him thanks Jamie

Darren & Amber Lines

Don Vallee and his team were with us during the entire process and walked our family through this stressful time. We are grateful for Don's assistance - he made this a great experience.

Ray & Stephanie Montoya

My husband and I are moving from Spokane, WA to Tucson, AZ. The agents were exceptional! Not only were they exceptional in showing us a multitude homes in a very short period of time, they also made the long distance communications effortless! We would highly recommend them!

William & Claudia Tatley

Long Realty's Vallee Gold Team -- Don & Kathy Vallee and their showing agent Marilyn Schultz -- get our highest endorsement for outstanding service and over and above attention to our every need. They served as the listing agent on the sale our house, and acted on our behalf as our buyer's broker for the purchase of our new house. These complicated transactions can be stressful, but the Vallee Gold Team mitigated all our concerns. They made themselves available day and night, and treated us more like friends than clients. Suffice it to say, we are in turn recommending them to all of our friends, and give them our highest rating for industry knowledge, professionalism, attention to detail, and client satisfaction. We have absolutely loved working with these smart and personable realtors and will miss them now that all our transactions have been completed. Long Realty is fortunate indeed to have such high caliber agents representing their firm -- AAA+++.
