eXp Realty Tucson Testimonials

My wife and I met Tara when we first moved to Tucson and were looking to buy a house.

She did a great job for us and found a house for us in a couple of weeks. We ended up having to move from the Tucson area for medical reasons, so we contacted Tara again to help us sell our house. Once again she did an outstanding job for us and we were able to sell our house almost immediately. She was always responsive to our needs and always went over and above to get our questions answered. I highly recommend Tara, she is an outstanding realtor.

I moved down to Sahuarita for a job from Olympia, Washington in July.

We found John in an advertisement and he helped me find an apartment that worked out great. He also was helping me find a home because I knew that I did not want to be in the apartment for a year. John always kept me up to date on houses and would give me ones to look at online just about every other week. He has a wonderful website where you can look at all the houses with pictures and it is very detailed and organized. John did a wonderful job with helping me find the perfect home for me, he went above and beyond and I feel that he truly cares about his customers and it shows. I would recommend John Backer to my friends and anyone who is looking to buy/sell a house because he is a wonderful agent and will do everything he can to meet his customers needs. Thanks to John I have a beautiful home that I love and he is the one that made it happen :)


I was very pleased with my Home Buying experience/process, This was due to an excellent Real estate agent.

I was impressed by the fantastic service i recieved, and i loved the fact that John was available at all times. He was very enthusiastic about his job and i would say that he enjoys it; he truly went above and beyond to help us settle into our home. All in All John truly has the technology advantage - he even created a website for our business How many Realtors could or would build you a website? :]

Buying Client

In an uncertain market, John came through for us!

With John on our side, we sold our home in just over 50 days and within $4K of our asking price. John was very knowledgeable and always made himself available to us throughout the selling process. Additionally, he used the latest technology to advertise our home to the masses. Whether you are buying, selling, or renting, I highly recommend you retain John Backer as your agent.

Selling Client

John was my agent for a recent home purchase.

Buying a home is stressful, but he made it easy. I never felt like I was being 'sold to' or condescended, as I've noticed is a problem with other agents. His down-to-earth realism and kind honesty really helped me feel comfortable during the process. If you're looking for someone who will be your biggest advocate and who isn't afraid to tell it like it is (nicely), then John's your guy. He has earned my trust, and I intend to go to him for my next real estate transaction.

Buying Client

During the sale of my house John consistently met all expectations whether it was holding open house, providing feedback from prospective buyers, advertising and promotion and soliciting viewing from other agents.

He consistently kept me informed thru each step of the process.


John was very knowledgeable and very flexible and accommodating.

He pointed out details during the process of home-shopping and home-buying so that I was confident that I was making the best decisions and going into the process fully prepared.

Justin Ludwig

Honest and hardworking with our best interest in mind.

We looked at many houses, then bought the first one he showed us. He was also helpful recommending a good carpet cleaning company, termite inspection, roofing, and HVAC company (inspection and minor maintenance - no problems with the house).

Bert Rollins

John Backer is spot on.

He helped us tremendously right out the gate. I is very knowledgeable and informative with any questions or concerns we had. He is aggressive when needed and very open minded with your wants or needs. Any time we needed to do a viewing or had questions he was always at our service without any delays.


John helped me and my fiancé find our first home during the chaotic Holiday Season.

He was knowledgeable and willing to show us homes in a, more than reasonable, timely manner. He was patient with us and his opinions and suggestions were very useful for us first time home buyers.


I couldn't have asked for a better realtor!

As a first time home buyer i was nervous and really had no idea how to purchase a house, but John made my home buying experience a good one. He guided me every step of the way, always available to answer my questions and ease my concerns. John is patient, knowledgeable, reliable, thorough and an excellent negotiator. I would highly recommend him to others looking to buy or sell their home.

Buying Client

I felt Mr.

Backer was very patient and tried to explain things so I could understand and follow the progress of the sale of our property. He was always warm, friendly and very approachable. He referred several contractors to me, and offered me assistance with other resources. He was also very consistent about his availability to answer questions and keep me apprised at all times.

Carmen Wentz

My husband and I had an amazing experience with Tara!

We are a military family, at the time, I was in England my husband was in Africa and Tara did every single thing we asked of her here in Arizona to make our home buying experience as smooth as possible. She went above and beyond in sending us additional pictures and videos when asked. Coordinated all inspections and kept us well informed despite the time difference and miles apart. We highly recommend Tara!

Alisa and Gene Carter

While we did not spend months and months looking at endless houses, (We looked at two and purchased the 2nd one) Tara was exactly what we needed her to be.

She was easy to get a hold of, responsive to our sometimes endless questions, and was great in helping us secure a fast closing. I would easily recommend her for future home purchases.


Tara was outstanding at guiding us through our first home-buying experience!

I have absolutely nothing bad to say. She was responsive, professional, knowledgeable, and provided us a personable and simple purchase. Her dedication to education and familiarity with local procedures was second to none. I highly recommend her for anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in the future!


We bought our home through Tara about a year ago.

My spouse was not able to join me in house hunting, but Tara made the process so easy. She worked with my hectic schedule to meet at almost any time for house tours and was always available via text or phone call when I had a question. We will definitely go through her again when we decide to move.

She's dependable and knowledgable! Her communication skills with our clients makes the world of difference to keep a transaction smooth and she is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend!

Sasha Flores

My husband and I worked with Darci for about a year.

She was the listing agent for my husband's rental home and we ended up with a full price offer within minutes of listing it! Darci was so patient with us and spent many weekends looking at houses with us until we found the right one. We had issues with our lender and Darci was able to get us into contact with a loan officer that was able to get our loan processed in about two weeks, it was taking our previous loan officer a year and he still was coming back asking for the same thing over and over again. Darci helped us so much with the whole process and really helped us keep our wits about us during the homebuying and selling process.

Brianne Karner

Darci and Jake worked very hard to find us a home.

They were very accommodating while I was in Tucson to look at houses. When I returned to Minnesota, they continued to look, and even did FaceTime so I could see the house in real time. Darci was able to very quickly get a feel for what I wanted, so we didn’t waste time looking at houses that were not a match. She and Jake found us a fantastic home!!

Jan Taplin

Darci is amazing!

She took the time necessary to find us the house that was exactly right for us!

Suzanne Droubie

Professional, Intelligent, Exceptional, Educated.

These four adjectives combine perfectly when describing Melissa Triano. I have experienced this description immediately with Melissa. She has guided me in the initial recruitment process perfectly and has me in the right place mentally and physically, positioning myself to make a positive impact in a competitive new endeavor. I have tremendous confidence in her and I am thankful that she has been and will be guiding me through the rest of the process. Melissa's experience and vision speak for themselves!

Our home buying experience with Apryl was fantastic.

She is extremely knowledgeable and worked hard to close our deal ahead of schedule. We highly recommend Apryl for anyone trying buy or sell a home.

Kristopher Laeuter

Apryl was very attentive and detail oriented.

She responded to all requests and calls in a timely manner. I will definitely use Apryl in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Mr. Garcia

I have bought and sold several houses during my lifetime and have learned to dread it.

My experience with Apryl was a refreshing change. I gave her my wish list and my price range for a home and she hit it on the very first try. She was very helpful thru the negotiations, inspections and financing. I would give her a five star rating.
