I have lived in Tucson since 1994. I love giving back to the community that I have lived and raised my children in.

So, now is the time to put my love of real estate and Tucson to work for you. I can help you find a beautiful new home or sell your current home.

I‘ve been licensed to sell real estate in Arizona since 2001 and have helped hundreds of people achieve their real estate goals, whether it be a personal sale or purchase, an investment, or just advice on their particular situation. From 2013 to 2020, I was part of the management team at Long Realty, a role which allowed me to not only capitalize on my real estate background as an Associate Broker, but to utilize the skills I acquired through a 25 year career in retail management. I have been blessed with a beautiful family who all live in the Tucson area, which has allowed me to watch them grow to be amazing adults and provide me the enjoyment of being entertained by two adorable grandchildren. If you are interested in information about Southern Arizona real estate, contact me.



Michael Joseph

All my life I’ve been a relationship-builder.  I enjoy getting to know new people… where they are from… what is important to them.  I built life-long friendships while working in land development for more than 15 years.  Then I spent several years in the restaurant business.  Finally in 2013, I took the plunge and started my career in real estate.
In this new career, I get to match my passion for people with my other love… real estate. I have always been interested in houses, never able to pass an open house without stopping in.  I have a knack for listening to my clients, identifying what is most important to them in a home, and what are their deal breakers, and matching them with the home of their dreams.  I make it a point to be genuine and trustworthy in every interaction.  I make myself available to my clients, and stay in frequent communication as they go through an exciting, and sometimes high stress moment in their lives.  I want every client to know they are in good hands.
My core values and vast experience will serve you well in our ever-changing market.  I don’t want to be the busiest, I want to be the best.

Yeah, all the stuff above is really about me, but really, when you "Meet me", I hope you'll come to understand that I'm just a guy who likes to help others achieve their goals. I want to see the smile on your face when I bring you the offer you've been looking for or when I hand you the keys to your new home. That's why I'm a REALTOR®.
