Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, AZ.

Spirits is a fantastic real estate agent who is very professional and friendly. His honesty and knowledge of the industry made buying a home so easy. He was able to find the exact house we were looking for and negotiate a fantastic price for it. He took the time to help us understand each step of the process, often going above and beyond to help purchase our home. I would highly recommend Spirit as your next real estate agent in Tucson.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Tucson, AZ.

As first time home buyers, Spirit provided exactly what we needed; patience, attentiveness, and a great sense of humor! Not only was his knowledge and professionalism impressive, he made the entire experience easy and fun. As daunting as buying a home can be, Spirit made it seem effortless due to his expertise, friendliness, and optimism. We couldn't thank you enough, Spirit!!!

Thank you for the kind review. All buyers in every price range have to make some sort of compromise(s). The advantage of viewing many houses together as the buyer, you can start to see which compromises you can live with. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your home buying process. Glad I could help you not only find the right property for you (before it was listed on MLS) but also help in finding a good local lender, home inspector, etc. Glad I was able to help make it a smooth transaction. Enjoy your new home!

Bought a home in 2015 for approximately $350K.

As out of state buyers with only a few days to look around, Spirit's knowledge and experience in the Tucson market streamlined our house search and ultimate purchase. He kept us on a timely and efficient schedule to view homes, but we never felt rushed. His knowledge of the area helped us to quickly narrow our search area, and find a house that fits our needs even though our initial search criteria was vague. Spirit's focus and follow through with us even long distance is amazing. Spirit is an asset to Tucson!

Thank you for the kind words. It is so nice to see clients appreciate my knowledge of the Tucson Market. I have been in over 500 properties this year alone, that experience pays off for clients I work with. Once we started working together, viewing properties, I remembered a newer built home that I thought would be a good fit for you, even though it was not on your initial search. Thank you for your business, wish you the best of luck and Welcome to Tucson!

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Tucson, AZ

I have been to Tucson many times over the years and know pretty much what I was looking for--a house that is over 2500SQFT. Spirit insisted that all the foothill homes in Tucson are under 1500 SQFT. This is not possible--so either he does not know the are or he was not listening to what I was asking for. On that basis we decided not to pursue working with him.

To: Out of state buyer Noreen. You chose to contact me on 5/6/15 on Zillow.com, I called you within an hour. We discussed your criteria & available inventory. You told me that you were interested in a 2500SqFt+ newer build, modern home in the Foothills priced under $275K. I tried to explain to you, in your price range, a newer or modern home in the foothills would be a smaller sq footage than 2500SqFt. Of course there are larger homes in the Foothills!! I have closed several homes in that area this year and all were larger than 1,500SqFt & all were more than $275K. After speaking with you, we decided we would not be a good fit. I’m not sure why you decided to wait 3 months and then post a spiteful review of me. We never worked together. You are not a client, you contacted me thru Zillow.com & I responded. I answered all of your questions & tried to educate you on the Tucson housing market. Best of luck in your search.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Country Glenn, Tucson, AZ.

Spirit knows the area so can advise you on that... He knows the other agents so can advise you how to negotiate with each one individually... He knows the process and so can let you know about hidden/unexpected expenses ahead.... But the main positive about Spirit is the ridiculously good responsiveness!!!!!! We cannot understand this! When you are looking at a house that has come on the market that hour, Spirit will be the one to get you in to see it first. Sometimes, that is what counts. Spirit won our House for us. 6/5 stars!!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Casas Adobes, Tucson, AZ.

Spirit was a great choose for a buyer's agent. He does what the job takes to find you a house, and makes you feel like you are the only person he is working with. Spirit points out all the positive and negative things he sees with a home and uses his experience to advise what a better investment would be. He is not pushy, and doesn't try to sell you the house. He simply points things out that you don't think about (like houses being on a cul de-sac, upkeep on the house you are looking at as well as how the neighborhood is in general, the orientation of the house). Spirit treated me and my son with respect and listened to what we were looking for in a house. He never he's hesitated to show us one property, or even 14 in the same day! He is patient and very professional. I would definitely work with him again.

Showed home in 2015 in Tucson, AZ.

We were beyond impressed with Spirit Messingham. He generously spent several hours of his life showing us around neighborhoods in Tucson that we had been previously unfamiliar with. He gave us valuable insights and freely shared his considerable knowledge of the entire area with us. He was at all times professional, truthful, and helpful in every way and showed us many properties which were exactly what we had asked to see. Ultimately, we did not use him to consummate our real estate purchase, however this was through no fault whatsoever on his part. (A close family friend had urged us to look at their own property which we ended up buying - without using the services of any realtor.) However, we will absolutely refer him to family and friends without any hesitation. Thank you, Spirit, for a job well done!

Thank you for the kind review. I understand that not everyone who contacts me will end up making a purchase. I enjoyed meeting you both, and showing you the different properties in Central Tucson. Please do keep me in mind in the future and welcome to Tucson!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Broadmoor-Broadway, Tucson, AZ.

We met Spirit by chance when we finally got up the nerve to start house hunting. Up front, he was straight forward, honest and really supportive of the house buying process from the buyers perspective. Spirit never lost patience with us and really steered us in the direction best for us. Tucson neighborhoods are not easy to navigate! Spirit knows Tucson, especially central better than anyone! We now have an amazing house in a neighborhood I never knew existed! We are so excited and truly grateful for Spirit and his expertise!
