Long Realty’s already powerful Foothills office adds an associate broker as veteran agent Barbara Wilson rejoins the company. Known for her leadership within the industry, Wilson is president-elect of the Tucson Association of REALTORS®, the largest trade organization in Southern Arizona.
Wilson’s path into real estate began as a paralegal for a leading Tucson real-estate attorney. “After doing law for 22 years it was time for a change,” Wilson said. “Becoming a REALTOR® was a natural progression.” Wilson first received her real estate license in 2003, and in 2016 earned her broker’s license.
As real-estate specialties Wilson includes working with second-home buyers, retirees and clients who are relocating from out of state. Originally from Mt. Auburn, Illinois, a family move brought Wilson to Tucson in 1975.
Her professional designations—all awarded by the National Association of REALTORS®—include Seller Representative Specialist (SRS); Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource (SFR); and Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI).
She also holds the NAR designation – Performance Management Network (PMN), awarded by the Women’s Council of REALTORS®. This designation focuses on developing negotiation strategies and tactics, networking and referrals, business planning, personal performance management and leadership development.
“Barbara is a wonderful addition to the Foothills office,” said Laura Mance, office manager. “Her leadership skills, her legal background and her track record all fit very well with our clients and our market.” Established in 1979, Long Realty’s Foothills office is the leading Tucson-area residential real-estate office as measured by sales volume.
