Redfin Agents Bring New Light to the Sunshine Factory!

blog_tucson_1022x767-1

Redfin is ready for some serious southern exposure! In addition to serving Phoenix, we are setting up shop in Arizona’s second largest city, Tucson. Residents of Tucson can now work with a local Redfin agent to buy and sell homes and use the Redfin online and mobile tools to search for every home on the market in Tucson including the Northwest, Northeast and Central neighborhoods.

Redfin combines technology and personal service to create a real estate experience that’s better for consumers. Just like a good dose of vitamin D lowers stress and increases productivity, the information and tools Redfin provides throughout the home-buying and selling process make it more efficient, less stressful and more fun!

Like all Redfin real estate agents, our agents in Tucson earn a salary, a generous benefit plan and bonuses that are based on customer satisfaction, not commission. This means that we are incentivized to put our clients’ interests first. Redfin real estate agents also spend zero time seeking out clients, which means we can focus all our time on delivering great service while helping our clients buy or sell their homes.

This efficiency enables Redfin to pass savings on to our clients by refunding a portion of the commission. For a $350,000 home, a Redfin homebuyer in Tucson would receive a $1,550 refund at closing. Redfin charges sellers a 1.5 percent commission instead of the standard 3 percent, while providing a beginning-to-end home-selling service, from pricing and staging advice and professional photography through the negotiation and closing processes. Someone selling a $350,000 home with a Redfin agent would save approximately $3,500.

Sara Fischer is leading the team in Tucson as the local Redfin market manager. Sara originally hails from San Diego, where she started her career as a real estate agent 19 years ago and has worked for Redfin since 2007. In Tucson, she will be responsible for building a team of local agents and helping people buy and sell homes. Sara has friends and family in Tucson and has long considered it her second home.

“I am really excited to bring Redfin’s customer-service oriented approach to real estate in Tucson. As a Redfin veteran, what I love about my job is working for a company that emphasizes doing the right thing no matter what,” Sara says. “I utilize creativity, patience and perseverance to help every person I work with have the best experience possible selling their current home or finding their next dream home.”

Sara is now working with buyers in Tucson touring homes and guiding them through the offer, negotiation and closing processes, and helping people sell their homes. If you’re thinking about buying or selling, feel free to reach out to her to schedule a tour or start a conversation about your home’s value. Redfin.com and the Redfin mobile apps also offer several ways to find out about homes for sale and what the local market is like even before you’re ready to dip your toe in the water, including:

  • Redfin Home Dashboard: A comprehensive online resource for home sellers that provides real-time data on their home.

  • Redfin Matchmaker: Software that recommends unexpected listings to Redfin clients.

  • Instant Tour Scheduling: Ability to instantly schedule a home tour with a Redfin agent with a single click from a browser, iPhone, iPad or Android app.

  • Deal Room: A real-time guide through the closing process, including milestones, deadlines and tasks.

  • Redfin Home Value Tool: A more accurate way to find out what your home is worth using self-selected comparable homes for sale in your market.

  • Instant Updates: Smartphone or email notifications when new homes are listed or when prices drop.

  • Search by School: Shows all the homes for sale served by a certain school with one easy search.

  • Tour and Offer Insights: Real-time statistics and notes from Redfin agents about thousands of homes and offers.
