Client Reviews

Rich and Patty were extremely beneficial in helping us get our property in shape to sell. My sister and I do not live in Tucson. We inherited our childhood home from our parents. So having Patty and Rick do all the leg work for contractors was above and beyond. They were very familiar with the historic neighborhood our house was located in. They had us do the necessary upgrades to get it sold, and knew what not to upgrade. They were always available for communication, whether it was email, text or phone. I would definitely recommend this team to market my property again. They were very successful in getting the house on the market at the right time and got us a offer immediately, with backups should we have needed them. Thanks Patty and Rick! Joyce Van Deren

Five stars for Rick! He went above and beyond for us and made the process smooth and efficient. Moving from California to AZ was a challenge, but Rick’s steady and reassuring manner was invaluable. Without hesitation we would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home in Tucson.

Rick and Patty have done every one of our Residential Purchases and Sales since 2015. We will Never use any other Realtor for any of our Residential Transactions! They are the best Realtors in Tucson hands down! With our most recent purchase, Rick and Patty were in Greece on vacation and they were still negotiating the Price lower for us! It's simple, they are the Best!

I met Rick through a 30 year friend of his who I met on one of the local Tucson golf courses. Rick came highly recommended and delivered. Rick paid close attention to my home specs and showed properties that met those parameters. I found Rick to be exceeding well versed in the local market and always willing to give very sound advice and go the extra mile for my benefit. The net result was I landed a home that met my specs and some. Rick works with his wife Patty, who I never had the pleasure of meeting first hand. However it was always evident that she was on the job preparing offers and other contract docs. I would highly recommend Rick & Patty to anyone looking at Tucson real estate.
