Vicki Holmes Team

Associate Broker, REALTOR
Tanque Verde - Tucson

Mobile:(520) 471-4731

Negotiation skills are basic tools for every successful REALTOR®. Agents build their skills in different ways; I was born into mine. Growing up on a 100-acre Ohio farm with nine siblings, I quickly learned the value and joy (and necessity) of working with people. That led to a sales career at age 20—more than 35 years ago. And I still love what I do!

I joined Long Realty in 2005 as a licensed agent and stepped up to associate broker in 2013. Helping buyers find their dream home, and helping sellers reach their goals, is incredibly rewarding. Every seller gets my best effort as I market their home through all available resources. My goal is to sell their house in the shortest time possible, and to negotiate the highest possible sale price.

Working with buyers to find their dream home, and turning over the keys at closing, is an overwhelming feeling. It’s like completing a long journey—and I love to travel. Together we find the perfect home, negotiate the best possible price, and thoroughly research the property. I’m there to oversee the purchase, right up to the closing. Handing the keys to a buyer is one of life’s greatest joys.

Helping so many clients has been good for me too. My sales performance has earned me Long Realty’s highest award levels, including “Pro of the Year” every year from 2012 to 2016 and membership in the élite 1926 Circle of Excellence for the same years. I reached the vice president level in 2015. In 2016, I was named one of the “100 Most Influential Real Estate Agents in Arizona.”

Not bad for a farm girl from Ohio. But remember those nine siblings? What a great way to build the people skills every REALTOR® should have!

Client Reviews

We used Vicki to sell our home, and to purchase another.We considered ourselves pretty savvy sellers, as well as shoppers, but Vicki truly amazed us with her knowledge of the real estate world.Vicki thought of many things throughout the process of selling and buying, that we would not have even contemplated, creating an incredibly smooth and flawless transition from one home to the other.With Vicki's extreme knowledge of the market, and seemingly limitless connections, she was able to take a normally stressful event, and turn it into an almost walk in the park event!We were almost sorry for our selling and purchasing experience to come to an end, because we no longer communicate with her on a regular basis.We consider Vicki a friend, and would not hesitate to recommend her to our friends and family!!

When I knew I was ready to buy a house I contacted Vicki. I thought I knew what I wanted in a house, the basic 3 bedroom, 2 baths, & nice size yard. After looking at houses, those things changed. I saw bigger kitchens, two story, & other amenities that I didn't think of. As my wants changed, Vicki was patient and knew where to look for my ever changing wants & needs. Buying a house is a huge investment and Vicki was so helpful through every aspect! I was actually out of state when an offer I put on a house came through and Vicki took care of the paperwork and had scheduled the home inspection for when I returned and had everything ready for when I came back. She definitely knows her stuff and is a great person! I would recommend her to anyone. Dena-Home owner

Vicki is a seasoned professional who knows the area and is very good at marketing and keeping in communication with her clients throughout the process. I highly recommend her.

We have purchased and sold 10 properties in the past 59 years. Our recent transaction was handled by Vicki Holmes, and was, by far, the most gratifying experience we have ever had with a realtor. She was very knowledgeable in all aspects of her business, and conducted herself with the highest integrity. We would be proud to recommend her to our best friends and dearest family members.

After doing my research to find the top Real Estate professionals in the area, Vicki Holmes' name appeared in the search results time and time again. After my initial consultation with Vicki I knew she was the one to sell our family home. Vicki brings the full complement of services and experience to the sales process and the marketing and advertising was far superior to anyone else that I researched. Our house sold in less than one week in a market where 4 months was the average. I will absolutely use Vicki Holmes for my next home purchase or sale

C. K

Vicki was very reassuring and knowledgeable when it came to listing and selling our home. Her experience put us at ease and everything went smoothly. Would highly recommend Vicki. She has an excellent reputation.

K. D

Knows the area and tracks all the houses for sale in the area.. great for comparisons. Listens to my concerns and responds with positive advise. Both my husband and I were impressed and thankful to have found and used Vicki for the sale of our home.

M. P

I've worked with many realtors over the years, but have never come across one like Vicki. She made me feel like I was her only client...she always had time to answer my questions and assure me that the purchase of this house was the easiest thing she'd (and I'd) ever done. She pays incredible attention to detail, and her negotiating skills are like none other. I hope I never have to move again, but I can assure you that if I do, it won't be without the help of Vicki Holmes!

J. H

Working with Vicki Holmes was a pleasure. She was patient and skillfully personable working with my 88 year Mother to sell her home in the Tucson foothills. A good negotiator in the Listing, Showing and Financial Offer / Counter-Offer process being attentive to the many details surrounding the eventual sale. She was warm and friendly to us all as family with a thoughtful and listening ear to our concerns and desires. Timely in returning communication and careful to be thorough during the procedural paperwork of Real Estate and Escrow necessities. She was very sensitive to my Mother's age and needs, always friendly and understanding, and successfully attractive.

R. R

Vicki did a great job in assisting us with our purchase. The process went very smooth and without a hitch. The owners were out of state and all the paperwork was processed in a timely manner to help the process move with little effort. I will recommend Vicki to those needing real estate assistance in our town.

T. H

Vicki is knowledgeable, professional, and capable of getting the job done. I appreciated her honesty and her ability to listen to our needs as a client. I always felt like we were in good hands. We enjoyed working with her on the sale of our home and would definitely recommend her!

                    Vicki did an incredible job purchasing my house and selling it 8 years later! She is extremely knowledgable about Tucson's market. Both transactions were professional and stressfree! It was a great pleasure to work with her!

Vicki has great knowledge of the neighborhoods that she serves, she had a solid marketing plan, and priced the house appropriately for a quick and comfortable sale. The pictures of the property were fantastic! I would recommend Vicki to anyone in the Tucson area!

                    Vicki sold my old house and found me a new one. With all my research, the absolutely perfect house that I moved into was picked out for me by Vicky. She really listened to what I wanted in a new home, and was tireless in her efforts to help me find it. She was very knowledgable and professional during both my sale and my purchase.

Vicki Holmes expertise in the real estate market is one step above everyone else. We struggled to sell our house for almost a year. After hiring Vicki, it was apparent we should have hired her first. With her expertise in every step of the way, she was able to sell our home in no time. She kept us updated on her plan to sell our home, marketed the home beautifully and always was there through every step. If you really need to sell your home and have a true professional guide you through the process, there is nobody better in Tucson. Bill and Alexa

Vicki's expertise in the selling of our home was phenomenal. She advised us every step of the way, coordinated the necessary details to get the home sold quickly. Her professionalism and that of her associates were much appreciated. She went above and beyond the call of duty.

Vicki is a great realtor to work with. She is very knowledgeable about central Tucson and presented my house in a successful manner. Vicki worked with me during the negotiation process and was always quick to answer questions. For selling your house in central Tucson, Vicki is the best realtor.

I have had the opportunity to work with Vicki Holmes three times: twice when she sold a home I owned and once when she helped me find a home to purchase. Some of the words to describe what Vicki provides: kindness, compassion, trustworthiness, understanding, encouragement, warmth, hope, cooperation, patience, joy, to be treated as the unique individual you are ... the list goes on and on. I am so grateful to have met Vicki over five years ago and have found that she is very willing to share her wisdom and grace with others. You will find that she provide smiles and kindness when it’s needed most.

C. T

Vicki listed and sold our home in 12 days in November 2016. I would highly recommend her to sale your house for you. Very easy to work with and she is on top of everything.

D. P

Vicki Holmes is an excellent choice for selling your home. My husband and I felt she was attentive to our needs. She checked in with us regularly. She was aggressive using various methods of promoting the sale as quickly as possible. She shows great leadership but encourages the seller to make their own decisions on most of the important matters. Vicki offers her professional advice when necessary. She attended the closing with us personally which I understand is part of the contract but it meant a lot to us. We would ask Vicki to sell another house for us

A. L

Vicki was amazing. She helped us sell our home and buy a new home under a time constraint. All the appointments to show our home were done professionally. She also suggested how better to present our home - and it sold very quickly. We would absolutely recommend her for your real estate needs.

W. B

Truly listens to your wants & needs; then works hard to find the perfect home. even if it takes several days or weeks. We looked at 12 houses in 2 days, but did not find "the one". a day after returning to Ohio, Vicki sent a new listing; exactly what we asked for!!! So, we bought it! Moving soon!

M. C

Vicki Holmes is an energetic, communicative, compassionate and experienced professional. Her knowledge of all phases of the real estate transaction are evident. We appreciated her personal touch and we are happy to say she has become a friend. We recommend her with the highest confidence.

We were in a position where we needed a specific home in a specific school district in the Tanque Verde Valley. Frustrated with everything we saw in the $500k - $600k price range, Vicki introduced us to a new home that was PERFECT for our family. Our dream home is being built and we couldn't be more excited and thankful for her patience and through the process, her friendship. We would recommend Vicki and her team without reservation.

As an Escrow Officer I have had the fortunate opportunity to handle many successful real estate closings for the Vicki Holmes Team . Vicki Holmes Team clients are always well represented with their extensive knowledge and many years of experience in the real estate industry. The team makes sure that their clients are well informed and prepared for the final closing process, however they are always present at their client’s signing appointments to answer questions. It is a pleasure to work with the Vicki Holmes team on real estate transactions, their continued professionalism and attention to details insure that we have a successful closing for their clients.

Wonderful! Vicki and Connie were great at everything. Explaining the process, showing houses, going above and beyond. At no point did I question or lose faith in Vicki and her team. Thank you Vicki!! I love the house and so far couldn't be happier!!

Elena L

Vicki was absolutely fabulous to work with. We were living in Vermont and were so lucky that a friend recommended Vicki to us. We spoke on the telephone and I gave Vicki our criteria. Within a very short time she sent us a link with relevant properties. Vicki went to visit the home that we ended up purchasing and did a video walk through with us. The entire process of purchasing our home from the other side of the country was seamless. Vicki handled everything for us, and we are just thrilled to be in our dream home. Thanks so much Vicki, and if you are reading this review you are lucky to have found Vicki!!

Evelyn B

When Vicki arrived at our home during the initial visit it was obvious she had done her homework with respect to our property and the current market value. During the process of preparing our house and property to show for market, Vicky provided several useful contacts to get the work done. When the volume of showings became overwhelming, Vicki did everything possible to help us through it. Once offers were received and accepted, Vicki made sure that we understood everything, and she allowed us to make our own decisions. Overall, Vicki Holmes did an exceptional job as our Realtor in Tucson.

Gregory B

We give Vicki Holmes and her team a 5 Star rating. From the first meeting to the closing she was there with us all the way. The photos of our home were spectacular and the description of the property spot on. Our home sold very near the asking price which meant that she knew the area and was totally up on the market. We would not hesitate to recommend her to friends or anyone who has a property to sell.

Vicki made our recent home sale experience the best we've ever had. She was very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and all the details involved in selling a home. She was a very skilled and tough negotiator, and was willing to go the extra mile (or many miles) for her clients. We were able to leave the worrying to her. I would recommend her highly!

Joan H

Vicki helped me sell a home in April, then buy another home in November. She 'held my hand' through both processes, which can be very overwhelming for a first-time home buyer. She is very professional, and kept in touch with me every step of the way! I would highly recommend Vicki Holmes if you need someone you can Trust to walk you through the home-buying maze!!

Sara Fordyce

Christine Hays was very responsive and provided me with all the information I needed to make informed purchase from out of state. Her professionalism was outstanding went beyond the call of duty to ensure all the repairs were done before closing. So far I am a happy home owner
