Google Me for a great Tucson Arizona REALTOR...

Tucson is currently a SELLERS market. Prices are going up. So are interest rates. There are a LOT of new and inexperienced agents in the marketplace. A lot of the listings are still overpriced. A lot of sellers are still being unrealistic! You need the best person possible to recognize that situation, and have the experience to get you, the Tucson Home Buyer, the proper price and the best terms. Someone with no conflict with the seller and you, the Tucson home buyer. That would be myself, Jon Quist!

Remember that as the "BUYER'S ONLY AGENT*" for Tucson, Oro Valley, Marana, Vail and Sahuarita homes, my website never tries to "sell" you on any of my listings, or anyone else's listings, for that matter.

Once again, I NEVER take listings! I work ONLY with Tucson Home buyers! I focus on MY client's needs and wishes exclusively. I like to say that I specialize in people, not houses.

Relocating home buyers is a specialty of mine. Since I don't ever take listings there are no yard signs for local people to see. Most of my buyers are moving here from elsewhere. They find me on the web. Probably like you just did!

Don’t wait, if at all possible. Call me with questions at any time.

Buying a home may be the largest and most complex financial

 

transaction you ever undertake. If you're ready to buy a home,

 

wouldn't you prefer to work with the most qualifi ed real estate

 

professional you can find?

 

 

 

An Accredited Buyer's Representative stands out in the crowd.

 

If your REALTOR® holds the ABR® designation, you can trust that

 

they have the extra edge when it comes to KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE. As a home buyer, you need and are entitled to your own representation for the negotiation and purchase of your home. Think about this: you wouldn't hire the opposition's attorney to represent you in a lawsuit! So why hire their Realtor to negotiate the purchase of your home?

 

The ABR® designation is awarded by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Association of REALTORS®.

To learn more about REBAC and access various homebuyer resources, please visit www.REBAC.net.

The ABR® designation is only awarded to licensed real estate professionals who complete specialized training that gives them the edge in understanding abuyer's perspective and protecting and promoting their buyer-clients'interests. Before earning the ABR® designation, buyer's reps must alsodemonstrate proven experience in representing buyers. Further, theyare committed to maintaining their professional edge by staying current on the latest issues and trends in buyer representation.

 

 

 

When you work with an ABR®, you'll be served, not sold.

Your interests  become their interests. They'll make your home buying experience go as smoothly and successfully as possible.

You can expect your ABR® to:

 • Understand your specific needs and wants, and locate appropriate properties

• Assist you in determining how much you can afford (pre-qualify your mortgage)

• Preview and/or accompany you in viewing properties

• Advise you in formulating your offer

• Help you develop your negotiating strategy

• Provide a list of qualified vendors (inspectors, attorneys, lenders, etc.) for other services you may need

• Keep track of every detail throughout the transaction-to closing and beyond

Not all buyer's representatives are equal. Only a buyer's rep who has earned the Accredited Buyer's Representative designation has made the extra effort to raise the bar, with additional training and experience.

If you work with an ABR®, you can feel confident that you'll receive the highest level of buyer-representation services.

The ABR® designation is awarded by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).
