A friend once said, “People don’t care what you know, until they know you care!”, and I firmly believe this is true. As important as I believe my knowledge and years of experience are in clients choosing to work with me, I believe an even greater reason is my compassion and ability to care about our clients. I take our motto, “Working and Caring for YOU, the whole deal through” seriously- and one of the greatest compliments clients give us is when they say, “It seems like you really CARED about what was BEST for US!” My pledge from day 1 has been to honor each client/transaction as unique, understand what their needs are, and do my best to help them reach their goals. No matter how many transactions we’ve been involved with, the one right in front of us in this moment, is ‘one of a kind’.

I love helping people, and I have always enjoyed construction and the endless variety found in housing. After buying and selling a few homes myself, I wanted to help others with the process. So, in 2000 while still working as an RN, I got my license and planned to also work part time in Real Estate. Well, my Real Estate career TOOK OFF…so by 2002 I made the decision to retire from 28 years in OB/GYN Nursing to be a full-time Realtor. We live on a small ranch and riding my horse is #1 on my list! I enjoy various craft and landscape projects; fixing things on our ranch; caring for our animals (chickens, goats, horses, dogs and more); volunteering in the community such as distributing food to the homeless, Habitat for Humanity, serving as camera operator at our church.

I have been honored to be a Top Producer in each company I have worked with, which since 2006 has been Long Realty! We’ve also been the #1 Realtors in sales in the community of Civano every year since 2004, having helped over 400 families buy/sell or build homes in Civano/Sierra Morado. We are honored to be Top Producers in our Long HSEV Office and be part of the Long Realty 1926 Circle of Excellence in recent years.

My favorite things about Tucson are The Mountains, washes, abundance of riding trails, the ability to be outside EVERY day (even though I might have to start at 4AM in the summer!); friendly people; relaxed lifestyle; outdoor music; Sabino Canyon; Desert Museum. Being outdoors is a FAVORITE – whether it’s hiking; riding my horse; sitting quietly taking in the amazing beauty of our world.

Duane Bateman went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us sell our house. I would recommend him to anyone, especially any Civano resident, because he is honest, accessible and easygoing.

Simmons & Bille Harris Buntin

My wife and I live in Colorado and decided to buy a home in Tucson to be closer to our kids/grandkids. Not knowing much about Tucson, and only being able to visit there for short periods of time, made it a daunting task to find a nice home. Duane Bateman came to the rescue. He is a true professional who ably assisted us every step of the way. His many years experience as a realtor quickly enabled us to find the perfect home, make an offer, get the home inspected and appraised, find contractors to make minor repairs, find a local insurance agent, and many more tasks to numerous to mention. We are very grateful for Long Realty and Duane for outstanding customer service. We will highly recommend them whenever possible.

Casey Stockdale consistently went above and beyond. I cannot express enough gratitude for her and she’s now the standard for how I feel all relationships with a realtor should exists. She will be the single person I will recommend from here on out.
