Michele O'Brien

Oro Valley - Tucson

Mobile:(520) 360-8158


I have lived in Tucson since 1983, moving here from Wisconsin and quickly falling in love with our beautiful desert community. I am a University of Arizona graduate, and spent 16 years as a teacher before I discovered that real estate is my passion.

I love to help people buy and sell homes. I also serve as the Branch Sales Trainer for the Oro Valley Long office. I have earned designations as a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI), and e-Pro (real estate technology). I support the Long Realty Cares Foundation and am a former board member.

When I am not working with buyers or sellers, I enjoy running and cycling around Tucson, and I'd be happy to share my favorite routes and locations with you!

My goal as a Realtor is to help you achieve YOUR goals, whether you're relocating, looking for an investment property, or just ready for a change. I'll give you the time and effort that you deserve.

Excellent! Michele is as ethical and attentive and kind as they come! Actually enjoys her clients and spending the time to find the right place for their lifestyle and family!

Susie V

We truly enjoyed working with Michele. She was extremely helpful in our transition from the east coast to Tucson. She listened carefully to what we were looking for making the appropriate suggestions and locations best suited for us. She was always responsive to our questions and made the transition much easier.

So kind, professional and knowledgeable agent, I love Michele for all your service

Anibal M

AMAZING doesn't do Michele justice, she highly recommended an inspection that we didn't even know exsisted and it literally saved us thousands of dollars. She is a true professional in every way.

Michele O'Brien is the best real estate agent we have ever had. Saying she goes the extra mile and gives her clients 200% doesn't even begin to tell you how wonderful she is. Knowing Michele has your back and is there for you is such an amazing feeling. She is a rare person and we are so very lucky to have met her. We are so pleased to say Michele is not only our agent now, she has become our good friend.

Marie L

Michele is the most kind, upbeat, honest, hardworking realtor I've ever worked with. Michele Is determined to find the right house to fit your family needs and will not stop until everyone is satisfied! Michele made my move across the country a positive experience! Thanks Michele!

I met Michele nearly two years ago for a real estate tour when I was visiting Tucson to interview for a job at the U of A. She took the time to understand what I was looking for and showed me some great neighborhoods with a variety of homes that fit my criteria. When I moved to Tucson from Charleston, SC in January of 2016, Michele was the first person to invite me out for coffee. She knew my time frame for buying a home was pretty fluid and never made me feel rushed -- yet she was always available to show me properties that interested me. When I did ultimately buy my house, Michele made the process very easy and even fun. I never had to worry about anything because she was on top of it ALL! I've never had such fantastic, comprehensive service and support from a realtor before, and I highly recommend Michele to anyone looking to buy or sell a home here in Tucson. She's not only a phenomenal realtor, she's become a great friend, too!

Michele was such a tremendous help to us when we moved here from Oregon. We knew after our first meeting with Michele that she was the realtor for us and she did not disappoint! She had quite a number of homes to show us (all within our budget!), she was always there to answer all of our questions and was extremely professional. She also had great insight into different neighborhoods in the area and we learned a lot about life in Tucson just from talking to Michele. We would highly recommend Michele to anyone who is looking for a realtor and would definitely use her again in the future!

Suzanne M

Michele was fantastic! We were first-time home buyers and she made the process very clear and easy for us. We also had some trouble with our initial mortgage company and she literally saved the day thanks to her local connections. We've recommended Michele to several friends and will continue to do so. She's an expert in the Tucson market, a highly reliable source of information, and is willing to do what it takes to get you what you want. Plus, she's enjoyable to work with! When we buy/sell again, we will be calling Michele.

Elizabeth M

We highly recommend Michele O'Brien (of Long Realty) to assist you in the buying or selling of your home in the Tucson area. Relocating from across the country, we needed a special realtor who could be our eyes and ears and who could stand in on our behalf. Michele is everything you would want in a seasoned Real Estate professional. She is incredibly knowledgeable, very detail-oriented, highly competent and works with a high degree of integrity. Beyond her business acumen, Michele is an amazing person overall: smart, patient, disciplined and confident. She's someone you'd want as a friend. We are so greatful to have had the experience of working with and knowing Michele O'Brien!

I am eternally grateful that Michele was my guide through this complicated process. Any chance I get, I brag that buying my first home was an efficient, easy, and fun adventure- and Michele made sure it would be. She was consistent and available to answer questions or soften concerns. I was connected with her through Above & Beyond; I mentioned that my priority during this process was that I am not rushed to make a decision. If I am rushed, or pushed, my decision-making is delayed dramatically. Naturally, Michele's name was provided. I found a home just right for this stage in life, after only a 4-month search. I selfishly hope she remains in Tucson so that I can hire her services next time, and so that my family and friends can do so as well.

Eva B

Michele was by far the best real estate agent we have had the pleasure of working with! The service she provided was exceptional, and she went well beyond our expectations. When relocating from another city, it can be challenging deciding on a neighborhood and area in which to purchase. Michele provided us with wonderful guidance and resources to make this important decision easier. Her attention to detail and extensive knowledge of the market made our home buying experience stress-free. We will definitely be recommending Michele to everyone we know who may be looking for a new home in the future.

Phillip H

Michele was great - she went above and beyond her duties and sold our house for more than we hoped in a very short amount of time!

Johanna M

Michele has helped us find a couple of amazing properties! She is professional, organized, and gets the job done! We highly recommend her to our friends and family.

Great service, communications, advice, etc!!

Lawrence &

I really enjoyed working with Michele O'Brien. She was very knowledgable and she made sure everything proceeded smoothly.

Nadia M

Michele was fabulous! She took the time to answer questions and help guided the home and right neighborhood when house hunting. She organized several trips out to look at homes. She streamlined the purchasing process, and provided lots of information along the way as we purchased our first home. She is very professional, punctual, and honest, as anyone should desire in a realtor.

Jonathan &

Michele listened to what we were interested in and had several houses for us to look at beyond our own list. She was very thorough and provided a lot of advice throughout the process. After our first day of looking, she had taken notes of what we liked and didn’t like and suggested some houses we had not been considering. She took us to houses that definitely met all of our criteria and one of her suggestions was exactly the house we wanted. Michele guided us through the entire process. We were essentially first time buyers given our last house of 20 years was bought from family. We also were buying from several states away so we needed local support. Michele provided a lot of guidance and education and was wonderful to work with throughout the process. She strategized our offer, helped with a counter offer, and then helped with inspections and advised on the inspection results as well. We could not have done it without all of her help to make us comfortable with the entire process. We have recommended Michele to several new friends and they loved working with her as much as we did.

Scott C

Michele was extremely helpful and knowledgeable but also understood how to accommodate my specific needs with a tailored made approach. She also advised on some of the pitfalls that otherwise I wouldn't have been aware of. She's a great combination of experience and thoughtfulness. Highly recommended!

Marie M

Michelle is detail oriented, thorough, and reliable. She listened to my needs and delivered on her promise to find me the perfect home. I highly recommend her!

Brian &

Michele O'Brien was nothing short of excellent. As first-time home buyers purchasing a house from out of town, we felt incredibly lucky to have her guide us through the process and introduce us to Tucson! She provide invaluable advice at every step of the process and made us confident in making our choice!

Lucy S

Michele listed and sold our house in June 2018. We had tried to sell the house with another realtor in late 2015 with no luck, as the realtor's only quality was that he had a pulse. Michele actually showed our house multiple times back then and my husband said "keep that realtors card so we can list with her when this guy don't sell our house". We ended up renting out the house for a few years and decided to put it back on the market when our tenants got new orders. Thankfully I had saved Michele's card. We listed with her immediately. We didn't even interview any other realtors because we were so impressed with her right off the bat. She did not disappoint. Some real estate agents are not worth what they get paid. MICHELE IS WORTH EVER PENNY. She is definitely among the top agents in Tucson. She not only sold our house but guided us through the many trials and tribulations. I'm so very thankful we used her to sell our house, and will definitely use her again.

Valerie W

Michele O’Brien was an amazing real estate agent for us. She went above and beyond to help us find a house while we were in town for just a few days. She has been very helpful and responsive to our questions even after we found our home. She is truly amazing!

William &

Buying a home was effortless thanks to Michele O’Brien. Expert advice and very professional handling of all aspects of realty. She was recommended to us and we will certainly pass it on!

Stephen H

Michele O'Brien was the best Realtor we could have ever asked for. She helped us through every issue we had and was always available to help no matter the time. We had many issues from outside sources in our buying experience and I know that Michele would go to war for us if she had to. It's corny to say but there really is a level of trust that has to exist between a Realtor and a buyer and there is no one else I would work with after working with her.

Alex E

Michele is very professional, responsive, and provided excellent advice and offered solutions. She took time to understand our family’s needs and applied her expertise and insight into helping us buy our new home.

Gregory S
