Jay was incredible! As we were making our move from Germany, he did everything possible to make sure that we were happy with our purchase. He was patient and always wanted to make sure we were comfortable. He did more than help us find our home, he helped us become familiar with our neighborhood. Jay has been a tremendous resource through our entire repatriation process to Arizona!
We decided to use the expertise of Jay & Hillary, since they had the listing previously when we purchased the home just 8 mos ago. Jay was very willing to help us save as much money as possible. Since this was a very short ownership due to some health-related concerns in moving, it was important that the sale happen as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, we had some problems with the condition of the house after the contract for sale, but Jay was extremely helpful in obtaining contractors and monitoring the work that was done.
Without his help, this transaction would have been more difficult since we are living out-of-state.
We have been very impressed with the service of Long Realty and their title company, including our purchase in February.

Jay Lotoski was awesome at helping us buy a home, even though we had a bunch of issues and didn't buy from Long Realty. Would definitely recommend him to anybody looking to buy a house in Tucson. Additionally, he is extremely knowledgeable on the home building and new home construction process.
We are happy to have chosen Jay Lotoski and Hilary Backland as our listing agents. They were very professional, yet kind and considerate in every way. Jay patiently guided us through the selling process, and was prompt in returning our calls and emails. Hilary offered wonderful suggestions that surely helped us obtain a fast sale.
Thanks Hilary and Jay. You were fantastic!!
The most precessional, thorough, and helpful real estate agents we have ever encountered. Jay and Hilary’s commitment to our needs was unparalleled, and they made the home buying experience a pleasant and stress free process.
Hilary and Jay were professional, prompt, creative and a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend them to others and would use them again. They are an asset to the Long team.
Jay and Hilary did a fantastic job preparing the house for photos and the brochure was very professional. Jay has gone out of his way to help our family sell and coordinate all the activities prior and post sale.
They are a dedicated hardworking team and we highly recommend their services.
As real estate professionals we could be critical. However, Jay & Hilary were great to work with. It was a professionally handled transaction. We have nothing but respect for the job they did for us. They made us feel like we were special, but I’m sure all their customers feel that way
Jay Lotoski is a cut above all real estate agents we have worked beside when buying and selling our numerous homes. Jay is incredibly resourceful, extremely creative, knowledgeable about the market, wise beyond his years, and was just as interested in our finding "our perfect home" as we were. He is indefatigable and has an incredible work ethic. When we became frustrated with the buying process, he was there to answer our questions, make extremely useful suggestions, helped us analyze options, and stood ready to do what was needed to get us our special home. He also made wise recommendations on inspectors, as well as providing the name of companies and specialists to help us envision and create changes in our new home. Jay Lotoski was simply indispensable to us in buying our new home. We would recommend him above all others!
Hillary and Jay are a great team! You get two agents for the price of one! Hillary with her professional listing photos and staging, brought multiple offers the first couple days after listing! Then Jay takes over and goes to bat for you accepting a offer over our asking price and went into contact in only 4 days! We had some repairs and roof issues but Jay was there every step of the way. Coaching us with the process made it easy to complete our repairs! Most important...Jay always answers his phone or get back to me right away and answed all our questions as trivial as they may be! We pushed our timeline for closing to the max...but Jay held the deal together and we closed on time!!
Thank you Hillary and Jay! Great job!
You guys are the best!
Jay Lotoski is exceptional! He helped us buy and sell a house within a year and went above and beyond to get us the best value in both transactions. Not only did he represent us as our realtor, he became a friend in the process.
Jay and Hilary know what they are doing and Long has the experience and relationships in the neighborhood to sell homes quickly. They managed all of our little issues, referred contractors, and, in general, provided an A+ experience selling our home. We have already referred friends to them, if they're willing to drive out to Marana! They were an absolute God-send and our home sold in record time thanks to their efforts.
The closing with Long was efficient and the fees were as expected with no nasty surprised. This was an extremely seamless and about as low-stress as a home-selling process could be.

Working with Jay Latowski was an excellent experience. He communicated with us on a daily basis and helped navigate some very difficult scenarios with the sellers. Throughout the whole process, we felt confident he would get the deal done and protect our best interests. Now we’re in our dream home and couldn’t be happier!
Jay was wonderful to work with! Extremely knowledgeable, experienced, patient and helpful to me as a first-time seller. Would highly recommend!
We enjoyed working with Jay Lotoski and Hilary Backlund very much. They were professional, responsive and friendly! We will definitely reccomend them to our friends and colleagues.
Maureen & Gary Darst
Hilary Backlund and Jay Lotoski provided outstanding service throughout our entire home-buying experience. We would definitely recommend them to others who were looking to buy a home. Kudos to Hilary and Jay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jay was a referral from a friend and was amazing throughout the entire process. This was our first home buying experience and Jay made it a very easy and seamless process. We will definitely be using Jay for any future home buying and selling needs.
