Testimonials for Spirit Messingham
Spirit is a brilliant, creative, hardworking and an honest realtor. His enthusiasm and nose for detail is only eclipsed by his character and sincerity. He is not the first good realtor I have worked with, but he is the best. If he starts to talk fast, just tell him to slow down... Then listen to him. George
I'm a Tucson native. I've been in the service business for upwards of 20 years. In those years, I've been in contact with many professionals in many different fields. As some know, Tucson is flooded with agents. I've known Spirit for quite some time now. Whenever I wanted to tap a realitor's knowledge, he would be one of the agents I would contact. Like doctors, I wanted a few opinions. You could tell his answers were acute, genuine and crisp. He didn't have the "salesman" tone. So when it came time to list my house, I would choose Spirit. I was not let done at all. From determining a list price, coaching me through how things transpire, NOT being a cheerleader and telling me things straight forward, to closing he was sharp and punctual. My house had issues I was not aware of. By the time I was made aware of them, he had already made phone calls and had answers for me on the spot. Spirit made the whole experience as smooth as it could. Completely happy with Spirit and would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody (already have)!
From the get-go Spirit has been nothing but professional and super, super organized. My husband and I reside in Wisconsin and were looking to purchase a "snow-bird" home in Arizona. We have many friends in the Green Valley/Tuscon area and knew where we wanted to be. From that point on, Spirit managed our hunt magnificently. I don't believe the man sleeps or eats. Before you could blink an eye, a task he set out to do was done. He made sure the residence we were interested in was checked out and within 3 weeks, we are the proud owners of a GV house. Everything was explained thoroughly and when I was unsure or just forgot, Spirit was prompt and courteous in clarifying what I needed to know. He is a MASTER in his business.
High energy, extremely efficient, immediate response to questions, very knowledgeable about the area and process. We highly recommend him and enjoyed working with him. Note that we were out of towners and he helped us in understanding the Tucson market and where we wanted to be.
I am blown away by the level of service that Spirit provided! This is my first home purchase and first time working with a realtor. He made the process clear, understandable, straight-forward, and, as stress-free as possible from first contact to closing. I chose Spirit from a recommendation of a dear friend and I whole-heartedly give my best recommendation for him.
We were first time homebuyers looking for a very specific type of property in Tucson. Spirit was recommended to us by friends and we feel so fortunate! Spirit provided us with useful advice at every turn. As newbies to the process, Spirit made us feel like everything was under control and we felt like we had all of the information we needed to make the right decisions. We went into contract on our new home over the winter holidays (certainly not the most convenient timing), yet Spirit remained available and willing to meet us and talk to us on weekends and after hours. We highly recommend Spirit for your house search!
I don't usually write reviews but this guy is so good I did. I wanted to buy my UofA student a condo or townhouse. My wife and I looked online (from out of state) for potential places and called and talked to agents as we found places we liked.
My theory at the time was to identify the listing agent of each place and contact them, as I thought that would get me the best results. Well about three months in, we had contacted or left voicemails to about 8-10 agents and with the lack of response, lack of enthusiasm, lack of professionalism, and lack of knowledge we felt like maybe we should just rent and be done with our search.
I then found a place with a weird status I didn't understand (Active/CAPA), so I searched Google to try to understand it. This lead me to Zillow forums where Spirit Messingham had posted the correct answer I was looking for explaining fully that status. I then read his reviews and frankly was a bit skeptical, as they all were about like the one I'm writing is going to end up being.....very good.
I thought, if all of these reviews are legit this is the guy I need to talk to. I called him (he answered!) with no particular place in mind, but told him what I wanted to buy, where, when (asap), and how much I wanted to spend.....we talked for about ten minutes and somewhere in that time span I knew this guy was the real deal and that if we were going to find the place we wanted from two states over Spirit was our best shot at making it happen.
As soon as I got off the phone with Spirit, I called my wife and said "I just talked to the guy who is going to take care of us, and I think it's all going to work out." I told her to just forget about any other agent she had talked to and let's go with Spirit. She kind of laughed and said I seemed awful confident in this Spirit guy and that no other agent's were doing much anyway.
Spirit called/texted/emailed back every step of the way, and in no time had educated me on the Tucson market (which is a strange one), brought my expectations as to what type of place I could find close enough to the school into reality, gave me access to the MLS with all properties that would work for me, met with my student and showed the properties, walked me through the offer process, recommended inspectors, met with inspectors.....etc etc etc...
With Spirit's help we bought a nice townhouse that fit the bill in a great area, for considerably less than what I explained was my max budget.
This all happened very quickly.........In fact I had two agents actually call and say something to the effect of "Hi, you had called and left me a message about a townhouse I have listed? Sorry it took me a while to call you back...." These calls came AFTER SPIRIT HAD FOUND OUR PLACE AND WHILE WE WERE UNDER CONTRACT! When told we had already found a place they seemed almost relieved so they could just hang up.
To sum it up, if I hadn't found Spirit we wouldn't have bought a place. He is all that these reviews say he is. The man is on it from beginning to end.
If you are serious about buying in Tucson call Spirit, tell him what you want, listen to his advice and get ready to move.
When I'm ready to sell in four years there's only one agent I'm calling.
We are looking long distance and Spirit has been our representative. He knows the area well, lets you know the good and the bad, seriously tries to find the type of home you would like, and spends with you the time you need for finding what you want. I can not yet rate him on negotiation skills as we haven't gotten that far, but he is a very good agent. We are still looking and he is still representing.
6/25 UPDATE: We have purchased a home in Tucson with Spirit's help. He was very helpful in negotiating the buy. As helpful, maybe even more, is his knowledge of the process up to closing once an offer has been accepted. He knows the process well and makes sure nothing gets missed -- even when you're an "absentee" buyer.
Spirit has been honest and forthcoming, and more than helpful through this entire process. I don't think you could find a better realtor.
We were ready for an upgrade to a larger home. Spirit worked with us to understand what the market was like and what our options on a new home in our price range looked like. He provided excellent direction on how the process works and worked hard for us to locate our new home. We could not have had a better experience. As we were purchasing our new home, Spirit was busy preparing to sell our old home. He worked very hard to get our old home on the market and was successful at closing a sale within two months! Our experience as a buyer and seller was super and his guidance on the process was a wonderful experience.

Spirit worked with us as a buyers agent and was on our side all the way. He represented us fairly and accurately in all negotiations with sellers and their agents. We were shown listings that met our search criterion exactly so we did not waste time and efforts looking at properties that would not hold our interest. His experience shown best by handling the details of property purchasing in a manner that made smooth sailing for both of us.
