Absolute uncompromising honesty, in-depth market knowledge, sales performances consistently in the top five percent of his profession, a commitment to providing the highest quality of service possible, a top notch support services team and a marketing program that combines time tested traditional approaches with the latest technological advances. We worked with Vinny Yackanin on three separate real estate transactions over a period of nine years and found him to meet all of the above criteria. He is the consummate realtor.

Brad and Susan Paulson

“Over the years we have bought and sold 4 homes through Vinny and have always been very satisfied with the service he provides. We’ve also recommended him to many of our friends. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable but Vinny goes the extra mile for his clients making your home buying or selling experience a painless one.”

Ron and Debi Barnes

“Vinny has sold over 30 homes for me. In regards to our dealings with Vinny Yackanin, we have been nothing but pleased. His quick response to our concerns and questions has been completely professional. He has been honest and forthright in all our dealings.

He helped us through the tough negotiations and inspections of my home and I felt he went above and beyond the call of duty more than any other real estate agent I have worked with.

Greg and Jennifer Furrier

“I have enjoyed working with Vinny Yackanin for the past six years. I first became acquainted with Vinny while managing Southwest Savings & Loan’s REOs. When I became the Asset Manager for Great American Asset Management Company, I immediately brought him over to sell Great American Bank’s REOs. I have found Vinny to be accurate and honest in his preparation of market analyses for difficult-to-sell properties. I feel comfortable in accepting Vinny’s market analyses at face value. Also, as part of the service Great American expects of its realtors, Vinny obtains bids for property rehab, works closely and coordinates many service providers and follows through until completion of all work. He provides professional marketing, resulting in quick sales to minimize losses. Vinny has always conducted himself in a professional manner in dealing with REO buyers and sellers. I would highly recommend Vinny Yackanin to anyone seeing an honest and reputable realtor.”

Pamela J. Shaw, Asset Manager

“We have just received a check for the sale of my sister’s house in Tucson and want to thank you for your guidance through the selling process. As out-of-town sellers we had concerns but, in the briefest of time, you provided three qualified buyers including one that met our price and also wanted a short-term escrow. Through you and your organization we experienced a level of knowledge, diligence and professionalism that will be held as a model for our future real estate dealings. John Kendall and his staff at the law firm of Waterfall Economidis Caldwell Hanshaw Villamana were confident in recommending your services and now, after our recent experience, you can add our name to your list of very satisfied clients.”

Louise and Ray DeTournay

Lou and Ruth Salvatierra

“Working with Vinny has been one of our better experiences in life. His assistance in our relocation has been invaluable. We have not witnessed this kind of professionalism in a long time. He is truly a nice person.”

Tony and Joanne Luyk

“Coming to Tucson with little idea what we wanted, it was great to have someone of your caliber to put together a package of potential homes that targeted our needs exactly. Leading us through the closing process with its potential pitfalls was a bonus. The times spent with you were very enjoyable.”

Tom & Joyce Meaney

“We are writing to express our gratitude and thanks for your efforts in finally locating and then streamlining the purchase of our dream home. Your patience with us finally paid off after we found our new home. We couldn’t be happier. We love our new home and look forward to many enjoyable years to come. Our thanks also to your assistant Kristen. Without her help and understanding we would have been lost. Thanks again for a job well done!”

Greg and Debbie Smith

We love the house and now that we’re here I look back and see our evolution, of which you both handled with patience and encouragement. I recommend you both to anyone looking for a house. Thanks again!”

Mark and Liz Lukso

“Just a word of thanks for the excellent service you and Kristen provided (as usual) in connection with the purchase of our new home. Your willingness to see to the details even when they were not your responsibility is much appreciated.”

Dale and Paula Keyes

“I never knew before that a real estate transaction could involve so much laughing and fun! Vinny, you’re a refreshing and healthy antidote to that poisons adage “nice guys finish last”. Though I don’t plan to move for a long time, you and Remax will be on the top of the list. Thanks for everything!”

In the many years we have known you, we just want to thank you again for the professional way you handled the sale of our last house as well as the other three houses you sold for us in the past years.

Trent, Amy and Katie DeCamp

“We would like to thank you for your good work in marketing and selling our home. Besides being knowledgeable in your job, you were always responsive and fun to talk with. Thanks for seeing us through.”

Jean and Willie Davis

It was truly a pleasure working with you as the listing agent on the sale of our Foothills home. From our first meeting all the way to closing, my husband and I have never encountered an agent as service oriented as you. With your extensive knowledge of the real estate market and your attention to details, along with your enthusiasm, positive outlook, and great sense of humor, we were able to attend to our busy lives secure in the knowledge that everything was being taken care of. Both of us would consider anyone who retains you as a listing agent to be very fortunate indeed. Thanks again for everything!”

Philip S. Eichling, MD
Lynn M. Eichling, RN

“Thank you for the great effort is selling our property. I couldn’t believe the quickness of the listing to sale. A large part of the results was due to the seamless effort of your staff and yourself to insure nothing fell through the cracks. Those efforts plus the effort to go beyond the transaction in helping me take care of the peripheral activities I needed to take care of as a nonlocal owner certainly make you folks so outstanding in your field.”

Tom Meaney

“You sold our house so fast and for so much more money than we expected that we have been scrambling to find a replacement home in the Phoenix area! My friend and attorney was right, you really are the best! Thank you so much for your caring and very professional service. Your staff was great too! We look forward to working with you again and will let all of our friends know about you and your staff too!”

Bill and Mary Lou Piatskowitz

“This is a “big note of thanks” for honoring me in the Long Cares Foundation. I have wanted to volunteer in the community for some time, but have been busy working as a single parent. I know I will have that opportunity, but to feel a part of giving earlier on in life feels wonderful! I work hard with students and know that my hard work brings special people like you into my life. I couldn’t have had a better team to work with than your wealth of generous hard working coworkers. Nancy is so smart and focused and your Nova advice helped so much. We are very happy in our new home. Thank you!”

Bridget Keating

“Thank you for the wonderful job you did marketing and selling our home. We won’t go anywhere else in the future – you spoiled us! You obviously have significant experience and knowledge in real estate. Thanks for bringing in premium price on our home! “

Warren and Cindy Bogle

“We have nothing but compliments to share with you & your company. Nancy was above & beyond in our Arizona purchase. We highly recommend your company and would use Long Realty again in the future.”

Russ and Mary Melius

“Vinny Yackanin and Long Realty made it very easy to sell my home. Vinny was extremely helpful and went above and beyond the call of duty. He came to my home and explained everything in detail. I am blind and he made me feel very comfortable with him. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.”

Tana Oakleaf

“I am delighted to recommend Vinny Yackanin and Nancy Biel Stewart to anyone who is purchasing a home. From my first conversation with Vinny, through the process of looking at homes with Nancy, to finding the right lender, I have felt completely taken care of and supported. The experience that Vinny and Nancy have individually is extensive, and the combined knowledge of all aspects of the real estate process that they share as a team is truly amazing. Every question that I had was fully answered and anytime I needed anything they quickly followed through with solutions. I highly recommend this wonderful team to anyone making their dream home come true. We love our new home!”

Bridget Keating (first time buyer, teacher, single parent)

“You and your team were just great throughout the whole process of marketing our home. While we were not living there you kept the marketing going and kept us informed and involved. You worked out a good agreement turning a potential buyer into an actual buyer. When the closing became complicated by some unexpected issues you took charge and resolved all of it. Thanks for a terrific job. We enjoyed working with you.”

Ed and Nancy Harris

“We want to thank you all for the great work in selling our house and helping us find this new one. The professionalism, integrity and dedication to this project was remarkable. Your expertise, knowledge of the market and advice and counsel were truly appreciated. You helped us every step of the way and made the process easy and workable for all concerned. When we first listed our house with you we thought it would be 6-9 months before it would sell, if that. To have an offer and acceptance in less than 8 weeks was outstanding. I am convinced this happened because of the outstanding marketing, true professionalism and the first class team we hired…Long Realty’s Vinny Yackanin Team! This must be the reason you are in the top .5% of real estate professionals in Tucson. Not just Vinny, but also Nancy, Sylvia, Danielle and Rachel et al. Congratulations to all of you on a job well done. We are very appreciative.”

Richard and Gayle Roddy

“This wonderful home would not be ours unless we had chosen the right Realtor! Meeting you and hearing such glowing reports of your success from others who had worked with you made it easy for us to decide. After many years of stumbling around on our own you made it all come together so successfully that we will be forever grateful. Kristen was right on top of things the entire time. Her call to us the minute the house went on the market allowed us to be one of the first to see it. It was the advice you gave us regarding the offer, however, that made the outcome possible. Your easy going manner and sense of humor helped when we were so anxious waiting to see if our offer had been accepted. We were very comfortable working with you and were confident you would eventually find us our “dream house”. We will always be happy to recommend you to anyone who is looking for the “best” in a Realtor.”
