It’s easy to praise teamwork, but we’ve lived it. For us, sharing goals is a way of life. We were high-school sweethearts and never looked back. We’ve been married for almost half a century (and counting). And we started in real estate together, becoming licensed on the same day and joining Long Realty together, five days later.
Our biggest accomplishment as REALTORS® has been to build The Tucson Homes Team. Our Team—now comprising ten seasoned professionals, plus ourselves—can handle all our clients’ needs. We close more than 100 transactions a year, with a dollar value north of $20 million. Our sales production puts us in the top one percent of all Tucson agents.
But the numbers only tell what happened, not why. At The Tucson Homes Team, real estate is a team sport. We all win by Placing Clients First!, and by meeting the highest standards of honesty, integrity and effort. Experience counts too, and our team represents more than 150 years in real estate.
Tom’s time as an Air Force fighter pilot, and then during a 25-year career as a pilot with American Airlines, taught us the incredible power—and necessity—of working with people you trust. In real estate, as in aviation, there’s no room for error, shortcuts or miscommunication. We approach every transaction as a major life event for the people involved, because that’s what it is.
We do our best to support every buyer and seller during what may be a difficult time. We work with seniors, help arrange short sales to prevent foreclosures, and represent properties from building sites to starter homes to luxury upgrades. We closely monitor market conditions, and we’re skilled at accurate pricing. Top-quality, full-service versatility—that’s the power of teamwork in action.
Outside of real estate, we are involved in Faith Community Church and enjoy cycling and hiking amongst other outdoor activities.
