Long Realty’s Oro Valley office adds sales muscle


Already a regional powerhouse, Long Realty’s Oro Valley office has boosted its strength with the addition of two top-producing REALTORS® to its roster of agents.

Mara and Brian Mitchell—The Mitchell Team—specialize in golf and luxury properties, lots and land in the upscale regions of Northwestern greater Tucson, including Dove Mountain, Oro Valley, the Catalina Foothills and Rancho Vistoso. They work with both buyers and sellers.

The team has a history of high-dollar sales. In 2014, representing the seller, they handled a $1.7 million transaction in Oro Valley’s exclusive Stone Canyon. Big enough to raise comps in the area, the sale helped restore the luster of the community, which had been a bit tarnished by the previous year’s bankruptcy and reorganization of the development’s golf club. The home was under a purchase contract just 55 days after it was listed, when many luxury homes are on the market for a year or more.

The Mitchell Team has listed—and sold—other properties at or above the million-dollar mark as well, including a residence at the Ritz Carlton that closed this year 2016 at $1.7 million and a new listing right outside of Saguaro Ranch for $1.89 million.

Such numbers help the team accomplish a feat that is unusual for agents new to Long Realty. Based on their sales volume in 2015, they’ve qualified as members of the company’s 1926 Circle of Excellence for 2016, an honor reserved for its highest-performing agents. The “1926” refers to the founding year of Long Realty Company. The team is on track to win seats at the circle in 2017 as well.

“The Mitchell Team brings a wealth of real-world business experience, a drive for excellence, and a powerful track record of success in representing luxury properties, “ said KC Woods, branch manager of the Oro Valley office. “Mara and Brian will be a great fit with our market sector.” Serving the booming Northwest-Tucson corridor, the Oro Valley office opened in 1998.

“What cemented our decision to move to Long Realty was, we felt we wanted to team up with a company that was committed to the Tucson Market place and would allow us and support us in taking our business to the next level. We wanted to work with a company that was a good fit for us and one that comes from a place of abundance and team work!” said Mara Mitchell

Career changes brought both Mitchells to real estate. Brian Mitchell’s background includes a 27-year upper-management career in the telecommunication industry. He also ran his own chain of wireless stores in Tucson for 11 years before making the switch to real estate. Mara Mitchell retired from the hair industry of 25 years. She owned and operated a successful Salon and Spa of 5 years, in Oro Valley. Prior to transitioning into her Real Estate career.

Mara also stated “We are blown away by the unbelievable support and tools that Long Realty offers! We definitely made the right decision!”
