Top Agent Téa Honkanen of Long Realty Co. in Tucson, Arizona possesses a genuine, thoughtful nature combined with a deep reservoir of industry knowledge. This combination has helped her achieve a career that ensures her many clients continue using her and referring new customers. Her genuine love for the Tucson area is evident, as is her mission to put her client’s needs front and center in every transaction.

Téa moved to Arizona from Finland in 1995, intending to stay for only one or two years. That plan was scrapped, however, when she fell in love with the area. “It wasn’t hard for me to appreciate the sunny blue sky, people and the easy life style of Tucson,” she explains on her website. “This is the place where you’ll meet people from all over the world and share the same joy of year-round outdoor cultural and many other activities. Here, for sure, is something for every taste and style.” A registered midwife nurse in Finland, she was unable to continue that career in the United States, so began looking for something else to do. One day she found herself in the parking lot of a real estate school and decided to give it a try. The rest, as they say, is history. Since then her business has grown exponentially year after year, and shows no sign of slowing down.

With approximately 87% of her business based on repeat and referrals clients, Téa is clearly making quite an impression on her many customers. When asked to account for this level of client loyalty, Téa grows thoughtful for a moment before replying: “I think the main reason is that they trust me,” she says. “They see that I always go above and beyond for them. I really think it’s just about the service level and the trust.” The gratitude her clients feel for her is made manifestly evident by the reviews she has garnered on “It is hard to find the right words to explain how wonderful Téa Honkanen is. I bought my first home in 2012 with her assistance. She was there for me from start to finish…She is a determined, dedicated, honest and caring real estate professional,” reads just one.

Téa cherishes the relationships she forms with her clients, and is adamant about making sure they know this. “I love them all,” she enthuses. “The relationships we form are for life, they become part of my family.” Téa is rigorously consistent in sending out postcards, newsletters and emails to help her stay top-of-mind and to let them know they are in her thoughts. “I work hard to keep in touch with all of them,” she says.

An impressive commitment to marketing her listings plays a role in Téa’s continued success in the industry. While many other agents have begun to eschew the concept of open houses, Téa has embraced them and holds them regularly. She also utilizes the internet to great advantage to get her listings in front of as many potential buyers as possible.

Téa enjoys the flexibility of her career, and also its unpredictability. “I like that I can make my own schedule,” she explains. “You never know when you’re coming home, depending on what happened that day. As a field trainer for new agents, she also appreciates being able to impart the lessons she has learned over her sixteen years in the business.

In her spare time, Téa enjoys volunteering in the Tucson community. She is especially passionate about helping children and families. She has been a member of the Long Realty Care Foundation for years, where she contributes part of every commission to its support. She also enjoys glamming with her dog in her RV. “We head out the mountains or the lakes, and we love it,” she says.

As for the future, Téa’s plan is simple: to continue doing what she loves and providing as many people as she can with her expert assistance and the excellent client service that has become her calling card. “I’m going to do this job for as long as I can,” she laughs.
