"Stuart Marks was extremely professional. He was punctual and answered all of our questions. He made several suggestions that enhanced the sale of our home.

We would recommend Stuart Marks very highly."

Barbara & Marshall Abel

"Stuart was fabulous to work with throughout the entire home buying process. I have never had a better experience with any service provider! He is a tremendous professional and genuinely dedicated to providing the best possible service. I could not recommend him more highly."

Abbie Jean Smith

"Remarkable patience with picky clients. It took us 2 1/2 years to find the perfect home and Stuart stuck by us for the journey and would not rest until we found "the one." Stuart is incredibly professional, personable, and kind. He helped us find our perfect home and sold our old home in less than a week. Fantastic experience! We not only gained a great realtor, we gained a friend through our experience. Awesome Realtor with extensive experience and patience!"

Dee & MB

"Stuart Marks is a gem as a Realtor. He has been invaluable with his abilities to foresee what is needed and doing it before we had to even ask. I cannot thank him enough for all he has done to make our home purchase a dream come true. Please know that we will refer all our friends and relations to Stuart and Long Realty"

Brian & Evelyn Kelly

"We cannot say enough positive things about our Realitor, Stuart. Our mother had a medical emergency and we needed to move her in with us in a different city in Arizona. We were moving quickly to get her home ready to sell. Stuart was always prompt and did whatever he said he would. He was even so kind as to meet the pest control man since we were out of town. The home sold in one day because of excellent advice he gave as to how to price it and what to say on the listing. The paperwork went so smooth because he helped us every step of the way. He was in constant contact with us either by phone or email. We would highly recommend him to be your Realtor, you would be lucky to have him as yours. Thank you Stuart for all that you did for us. We appreciate you more than you could possibly know."

Nancy & Tom Proffitt

"I would highly recommend Stuart Marks. He recently helped me with selling my father's house in Tucson. I live in Chicago. He is kind and professional. He was very patient in talking with my father and wonderfully efficient in managing all the forms and paperwork. I found him to be honest and effective and a pleasure to work with"


"We were so lucky to be introduced to Stuart by friends. Having been long time snowbirds/renters in Tucson, we knew immediately who we'd like to work with once we made the decision to buy a home in the area. We established very tight parameters: area/view/square footage/amenities, and most importantly, price range. Working long distance, Stuart diligently kept us informed of new listings as they came on the market. With a little patience, and a lot of great service, we found exactly what we had dreamed of finding for years, We couldn't be happier with the outcome. His attention to detail, his expertise in negotiating matters, and his willingness to go the extra mile all paid off. We not only had a great realtor, we now have a new friend."

RW and GS

"On behalf of myself, Kristy and Alyssa, we want to thank you so much for being such a great Realtor and assisting us with the sale of my home. You worked so hard marketing it and spending so many hours at the open houses. Thank you for your patience with this emotional journey of mine. I will refer everyone I know to you. You are a wonderful person and I look forward to working with you again.."

Erin Moore

"Long Realty Foothills manager, I am writing to let you know how pleased I was with the representation your agent, Stuart Marks. I have never before, over many times as a buyer and seller, been more impressed. Mr. Marks' attention to detail, marketing skills and aggressive sales strategy were exemplary. Often when I have listed property, I seldom heard from the listing agent. Mr. Marks kept me abreast of showings and held multiple open houses. Updates were at least weekly, at times more than that. My property closed on 01-17-2014, less than 90 days from the listing date. In these times of a still sluggish real estate market, I think that is remarkable. I'm 110% pleased with Mr. Marks and would recommend him without hesitation to anyone I know who has need of a knowledgeable, competent professional Realtor."

Terry Bellville

"Stuart Marks of the Foothills office celebrates a stellar sales year by winning a seat at the 2016 Presidents Club. Stuart specializes in golf and investment properties, is skilled at short sales and foreclosures and represents both buyers and sellers. One very pleased client praised Stuart's knowledge, sincerity and patience. "Great negotiator" said another."

Real Estate Accolades - Arizona Daily Star

"Stuart was a pleasure to work with. Stuart listened, planned and advised us throughout the home buying process. He was detailed, thorough and accommodating from our first contact until closing. Stuart is a dedicated, kind and thoughtful agent and we would certainly recommend him and would use him again."

Sandra Edge & Roger Kern

"We found that Stuart was knowledgeable about local areas and provided us with outstanding service with high ethical standards. We will recommend him to friends and family without reservation."

John & Ruth Stoner

"Delightful to work with -- honest, responsive and helpful beyond what's expected. And a great sense of humor! I highly recommend Stuart. He made buying a house an easy process"

Debbie Sergi

"Stuart was the perfect mix of "nudging" and patience. He completely respected our budgetary preferences and helped us purchase the home we wanted. He was detailed and followed up on items like property tax payments even after the sale was completed. We would work with Stuart again in a minute as well as recommend him to our friends and family."

Sheila and Bob Kendall

"As a former Realtor I have had a lot of experience buying and selling property. Working with Stuart was a rewarding experience. Stuart was professional, knowledgeable, experienced and clearly concerned with me, my wife and our needs. We are exceptionally happy with all the efforts het put forth. We have already referred other buyers to Stuart and know that they will be just as pleased with him as we were."

Dan & Brenda Hanin

"It was a pleasure to work with you on both the sale and purchase of our homes. We had confidence in your opinion, integrity, and advice and that made what seemed a big change in our life much easier to experience. We will be happy to recommend you to any of our friends who might need help in real estate sales or purchases. We felt that we also found a new friend."

Charlotte & Bob Jones

Stuart offered a service which we believe was beyond reproach. He clearly knows and understands the whole process and the local market. He ensured our transaction was painless and stress free, and when talking to others and their experiences with their Realtors, "Easy." From a personal perspective, he was always available and considering we have a new born child, everything was done at our convenience. "What a Realtor, but more importantly, what a good person."


"I just wanted you to know that my wife and I have appreciated Stuart Marks' service since our initial meeting. We have purchased several homes before with realtors and all of our experiences were pleasant, none really memorable. Working with Stuart has clearly been a memorable experience. Stuart has significantly "raised the bar" for any future realtors we deal with. We are not the type of people who needlessly create letters of recommendation for people, especially without being asked to do so. However, our experience with Stuart certainly warrants the attention of Long Realty. Stuart has been incredible! We have had the best buying experience despite some challenging conditions. From our initial contact with Stuart, he gave us his undivided attention and guidance. He listened carefully to what we were looking for and helped us to understand the Tucson market well enough to feel confident about purchasing a home. As luck would have it, we felt an immediate attraction to a home and felt comfortable enough with the home and Stuart's willingness to act as our advocate in our absence to make an initial offer on the house. Over the next few weeks Stuart single handedly kept the deal moving forward. He always made us feel as though our purchase was the most important thing he had going. We were confident that Stuart was representing us with the same level of diligence as if he was buying the home for himself. Stuart has consistently volunteered to help us by doing things way beyond the scope of a realtor. We certainly consider him to be our first friend in Tucson. Long Realty is very lucky to have him as a representative. We look forward to working with Stuart and Long Realty and highly recommending your services to our friends and family."

George and Deborah Christ

"John and I were very fortunate to have found Stuart as our Realtor. He listened to our wants and suggested home for us to look at over the internet since we were in a different state. When we narrowed our wants, he made invaluable suggestions to help us make informed choices. His professionalism and guidance made the buying process efficient and understandable. We have purchased 6 homes prior to this last purchase and this was by far the easiest thanks to Stuart."

Diane & John Callan

"We would like to relate to you some of Stuart Marks' qualities during our recent home buying experience. We were very nervous about relocating from our Flagstaff home after 34 years. We found Stuart to be a very kind and patient person while listening to us for our home needs. He is very dedicated and has a vast knowledge of real estate and the area. He treated us in a very professional manner during this process. He also advised us with some serious concerns and hurtles with the sale of our Flagstaff home. The fact that he took the time and listened to our needs made our Tucson home buying experience a pleasant one. Now, we consider Stuart a true friend."

Jim & Linda Alam

"We have been searching for 5 years for just the right Tucson retirement home. We needed the most knowledgeable Agency & Realtor and we found that combination in Long Realty & Stuart Marks. He stayed in contact with us and was ready to show us hand picked homes when we came to Tucson over the years. Then, this year he located the perfect home incorporating all of our wants and needs and negotiated a wonderful offer for us to obtain the home. He has proven to be a very skilled, caring, and professional Realtor and thru this process has become a lifelong friend."

Susan & John Ladd

"I met Stuart at an open house last year. He kept me informed all summer by mail as to what was available - no phone calls pressuring me to look at anything, just a steady stream of helpful information. After finding a home that was right for me through the information he sent me, I asked for Stuart's help in making the purchase. Did I really need the help? Buying a home is easy, right? Wrong! I could never have navigated the process without his expertise and thoughtful guidance. Hopefully he will help me sell my current residence. I highly recommend him to anyone needing real estate services."

Jan Smith P.S. Stuart listed and sold my home the 1st day on the market!

Roberto Magallanes

"Stuart is a very professional and thorough Realtor. He treated us with respect and understood all of our needs. We couldn't have found a better person to help us in our hunt for a new house. We highly recommend Stuart."

David & Linda Orte

"When my husband and I walked into the Long Real Estate Office and met Stuart, we knew from that first meeting that we would have no problem finding what we wanted. Thanks to Stuart, buying our home was a pleasant experience. Stuart was and still is a professional in his field. He was always there for us during the transaction period and continues to be available even now. If we ever upgrade, we will certainly call Stuart and will recommend him to anyone living here or moving to Tucson."

Linda & Vince Gomez

"Working with Stuart was a rewarding experience. He was professional, knowledgeable and clearly concerned with our needs writes new fans of Stuart Marks.

Real Estate Accolades - Arizona Daily Star

"While on vacation we just dropped in to the Long Realty office on Sunrise and was given the best Realtor. Stuart was most helpful and showed us the areas we requested. But, in his experience and asking us questions suggested another area to visit the following day. He showed us 10 homes in Sun City Oro Valley and we fell in love with the area and Stuart became like family. It took a second trip to Tucson and Oro Valley to locate the home we purchased. Stuart was extremely helpful in narrowing our selection from 3 homes to the home we made an offer 0n. I never had any doubts working with Stuart about and any decisions we had to make as we completed our purchase and moved."

Sharon Masterjohn

"Stuart is the kind of Realtor you want working for you. Not only is he knowledgeable, honest, and enjoyable to be around, he also listens to your needs and puts the client first. I had specific requirements that were difficult to find, and Stuart worked untiringly to help me. I now have my dream house."

Janet Andrews

"Mr. Marks is very professional in his Realtor position. He is honest, open and trustworthy. It has been an honor to meet and know such a nice person. He would be an asset to any company and is a very favorable reflection to Long Realty. We would recommend him to anyone at any time."

Evy & Hubert Tollett

"Stuart Marks is a wonderful friend and an advocate. Our dealings with him have all been very positive and professional. If you would like exemplary service, Mr. Marks will not disappoint."

Susan Higgins

"Thank you for your patience, hard work and professionalism in finding our new home. You were able to direct our search into areas and homes that were truly in our interest range. Escrow was non-eventful thanks to you being attentive to details. We would not hesitate to recommend you to others looking for a Tucson home."

Richard & Rose Guilbault

"Enthusiastic clients of Stuart Marks write, "We are very grateful and can't thank you enough," after his hard work assisting with the marketing and sale of their home. Not surprising praise for Marks, who is a member of the President's Club, an Accredited Buyer Representative and a certified Short Sale Resource."

Notes & Accolades
Arizona Daily Star

"The time came when it became obvious to the family that mother would not be capable of living an independent life and selling her home became a "must do" as all of our family lived in far away states. We were fortunate enough to have selected Long Realty and Stuart Marks. Stuart handled much of the detail work involved in selling the property and this was a blessing as we were preoccupied in handling mother and preparing her for transition to a new life. Stuart kept in constant contact and advised us of each step of the sale of this home, offering his suggestions and advice to bring a quick and successful sale. I would be pleased to recommend Stuart Marks and Long Realty."

Virgil Syerup

"Stuart Marks leads the way with his unique knowledge of the Foothills-area market and expertise in providing relocation assistance to incoming and outgoing clients. Topping the million-dollar plus sales plateau when others have not, Marks gains a valuable promotion to the firm's distinctive Executive Club for 2010."
