Leslie's Team

I have called Tucson home for 18 years and have been a successful local Realtor since January 2005. I sell an average of forty-five homes a year to buyers and for sellers. Each client gets my individual and personal attention. I find it exciting to work with people as they find their ideal home or sell their current so they can move on to the next step in their lives.

Whether it is a first home purchase, relocation necessity, a larger home to fit your growing family or downsizing to sell your home and find a gem with less to care for, I am here for all of this and more. Sincerely, I enjoy going through the whole process with you.

My knowledge, professionalism, enthusiasm and area expertise will be beneficial to you. I am from Chicago and have twin high school boys. I am in the TOP 1% of Tucson Realtors and top 5% of Realtors nationwide. I have achieved Circle of Excellence status with Long Realty and am a member of the Luxury Forum. Would welcome the opportunity to work with you and your family and am here to help!

What Our Clients Say

Leslie H. Is a superior agent, knowledgeable and quick to act in each facet of our sale. Our sale was unique in that we bought for cash the house sight unseen. We know the area, we were in Foothills Clusters for over 20 years. Leslie was RELENTLESS in her duty to us as buyers.

Mahalo from you Maui Clients. M/N

I saw your "Notes & Accolades" piece about your achievements last year. Couldn't be more deserved, you are the hardest worker I know! I wish I had more houses to buy or sell just so I could work with you again. Congratulations!

Cindi Burke March 2019

Leslie Heros at Long Realty is the best agent I have ever worked with.

Phoebe Dylan February 2019

Leslie K Heros is by far the very realtor we ever had over many decades.

A & Barbara Schimberg February 2019

Leslie is, by far, the best realtor my wife and I have ever worked with. She was patient with us, as our goals changed during our search. She never pushed us, always looked out for our interests and provided great service. I would highly recommend Leslie to anyone looking to purchase a home. Leslie is especially wonderful to our-of-state buyers and uses technology to help facilitate showings. Again, a great realtor.

Satinder & Balbinder Banga January 2019

Leslie went way above and beyond what a normal agent would have to ensure my sale was accomplished. She was wonderful to work with and extremely professional. She kept me informed and was always available to answer any questions I had.

Seller December 2018

There truly are no words to express my gratitude for the most excellent service provided by my team. Leslie is amazing and made a stressful process so much easier for me. It was so obvious that was her goal! The end result for all of her efforts was a beautiful, peaceful, perfect Home for me! I will be forever grateful.

Buyer December 2018

Leslie Heros was a terrific resource for me especially being an out of state buyer of a property to house my U of A student. We found the perfect house at the right price in the right area and Leslie managed the entire process from offer to closing since I was out of state! 10/10

Keith & Monica Nisonoff

Full disclosure: Leslie was a friend before we signed on for her to sell our home. Some folks would have recommended NOT working together, to avoid possible damage to the friendship. In the end, I can't thank her enough. My husband and I absolutely made the right choice. Leslie took incredible care of us, worked with full transparency, was accessible, and was thoughtful and intelligent in her recommendations and responses. Her approach to the sale of our home was turn-key and thorough, and her integrity was apparent at every step in the process. I only wish there were more than 5 stars to give her!

Jennifer & Mark Cassius

Leslie Heros was our realtor in the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home. She was professional, conscientious, and proactive in representing us. She had a wealth of knowledge regarding workmen, movers, furniture, staging, insurance and inspectors. She was organized, and organized us! She was always accessible and worked well well with the other brokers involved in the transactions. We felt that she did her very best to arrive at a fair price for the properties. We would strongly recommend using Leslie as your Realtor.

Judy and Ken Riskind

Buying a house long distance turned out to be much easier than antipicated because of the wonderful help of our real estate agent. She was on top of all details and we even were able to arrange a contractor to make a few changes in our new Tucson home. Leslie Heros was recommended to us by a good friend and We can now add our name to her list of very satisfied clients.

Barbara McFarland Trust

I worked with Leslie on a previous purchase and as before she is extremely professional, hard working, knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions at any time. I would highly recommend her to anyone who was looking for a quality realtor.

C. Steven Tracy

We are so grateful to you. You were and are such a consummate professional. You handled the intensity of our time together so well. We felt we were with a person who had our deepest interests in mind and felt totally cared for. Both John and I hope we can be friends as our lives unfold in the sunny southwest. Many many thanks for all you put into our search. With deep appreciation.

Joan and John

Leslie found us a house that we loved! She is a great listener and knows Tucson very well. She made the whole process from start to finish easy! What a wonderful person and realtor! 5 plus stars! I can not recommend Leslie enough! The photos are from our backyard! Thanks Leslie!

Joy Johnston

I really enjoyed my interactions with Leslie . She was extremely knowledgeable and personable. She researched the information when I asked questions pertaining to my home. She was timely, efficient and went out of her way to assist me with the purchase of my home. I would recommend her to other interested friends if I had any at this time. I recently moved here, so friends are in the process of being made. I have no pictures to show of my home. Thank you.

Elizabeth Waters

Leslie is a trusted and competent professional. She is clear and very knowledgeable real estate agent and totally committed to her clients. She was a pleasure to work with and we recommend her with no qualifications. Five stars Richard Cortesi Phyllis Cretors

Phyllis Cretors & Richard Cortesi

Leslie did an excellent job helping me find a residence that suited my needs and location requirements. She is well informed, very detailed and has an excellent eye for quality and potential issues. My experience throughout the entire purchase process proceeded smoothly and was without issues. I ended up closing on my property after I had left for the summer and Leslie managed that process to a very successful close. I would highly recommend Leslie and Long Realty to anyone who is looking for a quality Realtor and Realty company.

C. Steven Tracy

Leslie Heros helped us search for and buy our home in Tucson. She was superb in all aspects of her service to us. We were shown attractive houses squarely in the range of our search and given pleasant, expert, and reliable advice on decisions we faced. Leslie was charming, tirelessly helpful, discrete, and loyal in discharging her agency to us. She has continued to look out for us and has become a valued friend. I can’t imagine another realtor even approaching her excellence.

Bob & Ruth Martin

I truly enjoyed working with Leslie as a home buyer. She went the extra mile to make sure our real estate transaction went smoothly. Leslie thoroughly understood what needed to be accomplished. She offered solid advice and made good recommendations regarding inspections, appraisals, and other services. Leslie continues to herself available 2 years after closing...assisting with questions about our home's history and providing additional service referrals. She truly goes the extra mile.

Greg Regens

Leslie is one of the most helpful realtor I’ve ever worked with. She has helped us to find two beautiful homes. And when we move again she will be the first person I call for help. As a new comer to Tucson she has been very helpful with advice when I need it. Thank you Bev and Tim.

Tim & Bev Scott

Leslie has helped us out in so many ways since we purchased our house. Her recommendations for a vet, pest control, pool maintenance and landscaping have all been excellent. Leslie always answers my emails quickly, despite the fact we bought our house 6 months ago.

Gary and Peggy Craig

Leslie was wonderful to work with and we highly recommend her services. She was knowledgeable about the Tucson market and very helpful in preparing our offer and subsequent counter offers. After acceptance she was on top of all the details involved in closing, including resolving inspection contingency issues and ensuring repairs were made by competent individuals. We appreciated her responsiveness and professionalism and have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

Laureen Morris

Leslie helped us find our new home here in the Highlands at Dove Mountain. She was well informed, courteous and thorough in researching what was available in our price range. She met with us several times and showed us many homes and helped us focus on the requirements we had. Throughout the entire experience of relocating and buying a new home, Leslie was knowledgeable and considerate of our needs. I would recommend her to anyone interested in the help of a very professional and pleasant real estate agent.

Janet Knight, Vester Knight & Joan Genn

Leslie is the best Realtor in Tucson! She helped us find our new home very quickly, and then sold our old home in just a week. She is so easy to work with, and knows exactly what her clients want/need. We would highly recommend hiring her to help you buy or sell a home...she's awesome at both.

Richard & Cheryl Darling

We have purchased two homes and sold one in Tucson in the last four years, Leslie helped us buy both homes. We thought we could save some money on the home we sold and used a different realtor. What a mistake, one that we will not repeat, Leslie will listen to your needs, educate you on the current market and work like crazy to get you what you want. We have moved around the country a good bit and have owned homes in several states and have never had a better experience with any agent than we have had with Leslie. She makes the whole experience almost worry free and painless. I would recommend her to anyone, friends or family, truly a great person to work with.

Tim Scott

We were moving from Oregon to Tucson, AZ and needed a realtor to help us find and purchase a home. Leslie Heroes was recommended to us by a friend so we gave her a call. Over the next couple of months while we were still in Oregon, Leslie sent us links to homes that she felt met our criteria. Once we were ready to move to Arizona, she assisted us with lodging for two months while we looked at available homes to purchase. We quickly found a house we wanted to purchase so Leslie negotiated the price, mitigated inspection issues, and initiated the escrow and loan procedures. Throughout the closing process, Leslie continually sent us digital documents to sign, as well as, contact information for contractors to perform some remodeling. She also supplied us with the utility contacts and the existing pool maintenance company. From date of purchase to closing was only three weeks due mainly to Leslie's excellent communication, negotiation skills and dogged determination. If you send Leslie a message or phone call you will receive a message back immediately. We highly recommend Leslie for all your real estate needs and we now count Leslie among our family and best friends.

Tim & Susie Doré

We are officially down to owning just one house! Now just waiting for the money from the sale of our old house to be deposited into our account. Thank you so much, Leslie Heros for helping us find our beautiful new home and for selling our old home so quickly. You are the best!!

Cheri & Rick Darling

Leslie was awesome to work with. She listened to what we were looking for and found us the perfect house. She also communicated with us every step of the way explaining the entire buying process. We are so happy with her service and would highly recommend her.

Tim H. | Home buyer in Tucson - Northeast

Leslie is great and I would highly recommend her.

Kenny L. | Home seller in Sahuarita

I was very pleased with the buying experience working with Leslie. Would highly recommend to friends and family.

Michael M. | Home buyer in Tucson

So why does Leslie rate five (5) stars? Pretty straight forward... she does what it takes to represent you in the most professional and beneficial way possible. Our experience with Leslie was with her representing us as the buyers agent. We could not be happier!! It seems that maybe in this time of so many choices that you could make the mistake of assuming all agents are the same, and their services about the same. I know that is not the case; Leslie is smarter and works harder. She has represented us now on two home purchases in the last 3 months, and quickly developed keen insight into what we sought and solved any, and all problems; yes there were problems, but she solved them. I would easily and highly recommend her to family and friends.

Shari Lynne & MFM | Townhome buyer in Tucson

Leslie is a most excellent agent! She was our agent when I first shopped for a home and bought. When I decided to downsize and sell that home there was absolutely no question as to whom I wanted for the listing agent. I called Leslie immediately and set the process in motion. I seriously doubt there is a harder working agent anywhere for anyone as either a buyer or seller. Extremely knowledgeable, listens to the needs of clients and does her best to see a happy outcome for all involved. I recommend her to others frequently and would not hesitate to contact her again to be my agent in buying another home in the future. One can always go to another agent, but in my experience in working with Leslie and in encounters with other agents who were showing my home, you would always be settling for less if you were not with Leslie.

Joseph L. | Home buyer & seller in Tucson

Leslie was awesome at helping us find our perfect home! I don't know what we would have done without her. Thanks Leslie you did a great job!

Renee R. | Home buyer in Tucson

Leslie had great personality and was fun to work with. We will recommend her to anyone that is looking for a house.

Paul & Colleen P. | Home buyer in Tucson

Since we were buying a HUD home, we encountered some situations that were unexpected. Leslie made every effort to keep us well informed.

David C. | Home buyer in Sahuarita

Leslie is a treasure, a tireless worker, a fount of ideas, an attentive listener, and willing to go the extra mile for her clients. It took Leslie one day to zero in on exactly what I wanted in a home. She steered me to the right areas for my commute, helped me to understand the nuances of traffic in the Tucson area so I would not be inconvenienced by a painful commute to work. Leslie demonstrated an excellent understand of not only the real estate market but the geographical area as well. As she laughingly pointed out virtually every home has a mountain view – you just have to know where to look. She quickly grasped the fact that I wanted to wake up, look out the window and see desert and mountains, not the neighbors home. She found my home for me! Please share my thanks.

Bill W. | Home buyer in Marana

I am very pleased with Leslie’s help in purchasing my first home. She followed through on the requests and questions I had for the seller. It is obvious that she is dedicated to her work. Her friendly, ‘down to earth’, and approachable personality was a ‘plus’. She was not ‘pushy’ or overbearing. I appreciate Leslie for being a hard worker, for being responsible, and for help in my new ‘projects’ for the house. She has many local contacts, which adds to her efficiency in being a real estate agent. Contracting Leslie as your real estate agent will surely result in a smooth and stress-free experience. I recommend her for all your real estate needs

Jean M. | Home buyer in Tucson - East

As first time home buyers the process of finding a home was intimidating. Leslie made the process simple and easy to understand. We found the perfect house and entered into quite a complicated negotiating process with the sellers. Leslie did a great job and got a deal that worked for us. She is very hard working; always available when we had questions and there to remind us when we needed to do something in the process. We will recommend Leslie to everyone we know. Thank you!

Nick & Audrey H. | Home buyer in Tucson

This was our second time working with Leslie, first was a purchase and selling our home with Leslie was just as easy. We were able to relax through the process knowing that she had everything taken care of. Our home sold quickly and we have no doubt that Leslie had a lot to do with that. We will use her again if we ever go back to Tucson.

Nick & Audrey H. | Home seller in Tucson

Leslie was great during all three of our transactions with her. First, buying a home in NW Tucson in 2010, then selling a home in August 2014 and buying another in NW Tucson. She is VERY knowledgeable and does her best for her clients. Thanks Leslie!!

Barbara W. | Home buyer & seller in Tucson

It was a pleasure working with Leslie. She has just the right combination of professionalism and humor

Dave W. | Home buyer & seller in Tucson

This is our third transaction with Leslie. We purchased a home in Dec 2010, the nlisted it with her in 6/14. It sold in 7/14. We purchased another home through Leslie in June 2014. When we are ready to sell it we will contact Leslie again. We consider her a friend as well as our real estate agent.

Dave W. | Home seller in Tucson

Leslie was great at helping us to understand the pricing, the paperwork and the process of selling our property. She kept in contact with us regarding every step. She is very pleasant and patient with our questions. We have other properties and we will continue to ask for Leslie to be our agent.

Fred & Melba G. | Land seller in Vail

Leslie did an excellent job for us. We gave her a list of requirements we wanted in a new home and also a short list of homes we got from the internet. Within one day we were looking at homes and within about a week we settled on Maya Ct. Very smooth. Leslie made sure everything that needed to be done with the home before final sale was accomplished quickly with minimum fuss. Overall she provided us a very positive, hassle free home buying experience. Would definitely recommend her as a realtor for anyone buying or selling.
