About Us
Patty and Rick Howard

Buying and selling homes is very personal.  We are called into people’s living rooms when they are making huge life transitions.  Sometimes it’s for an exciting reason, and sometimes it’s a painful life change.  We honor the great trust placed in us with discretion, dedication and diligent work.   We chose this business because we know we make a positive impact through our experience-based knowledge, exceptional communication and personal touch.  We’re proud that people describe us as always going above and beyond to deliver results.

We have closed nearly $200 million dollars in real estate sales, and when you hire us, you’ll get a pair of experienced agents who deliver concierge service specifically tailored to represent your best interests.  You hire us, you get us.  We never delegate your business to someone else.

Even though the volume of our sales performance has earned us a ranking in the Top 1% of Realtors in Arizona, and the Top 3% of Realtors in the Nation, our successful approach remains highly personalized and scaled specifically to each individual client

Here’s a little about us: we came to real estate by way of banking and finance. Patty had a successful career in management and residential lending for over 20 years, including the role of Senior Vice President at one of the nation’s strongest financial institutions. Rick also brings 25 years of experience in finance, commercial banking, and investments. We are Members of the Executive Council and the elite Luxury Alliance, holding the title of Vice President of Long Realty Company, where we’re grateful to be valued agents for over 17 years.  The support and trust of our client community have placed us in the distinguished Platinum Level of sales for several years running.  Our real estate business is guided by high ethical standards and we place our client’s needs above all else.  Our favorite thing is seeing our Sellers and Buyers happy; our second favorite thing is receiving their rave reviews, which you can check out on our testimonial page!

We are experts in luxury properties, gated communities, second homes, and the historic areas of the Foothills and Central Tucson, but we also follow a working business mission of providing our services wherever they are needed, because so often our loyal clients refer friends with a wide variety of real estate interests.  We believe that giving back to the community is an expression of appreciation for the trust of our clients and the privilege we enjoy living in this beautiful community we so love. Patty is a Past President of the Board of Directors of the Tucson Boys and Girls Clubs, and we support a number of other local charitable organizations, including the Long Cares Foundation.  We are the proud parents of two fantastic women, we love to hike in our gorgeous mountains, and are big yoga enthusiasts (so we can bend over backwards for you AND touch our toes!)
