I love the idea of the home. The perfect home should embrace you the moment you walk through the door. As a full-time REALTOR® focused on my business, I am the right person to help you with making your dream home a reality. I work hard for my clients and I believe that work should not only be productive but fun and enjoyable! My friends and clients know that I have excellent organizational and management skills, and that I'm a problem solver, level-headed, positive, focused, and comfortable with public speaking. ¡Yo hablo español también!

In addition to my real estate career, I have over thirty years of experience in business management, volunteer fundraising, board development and executive service on nonprofit committee boards. I have also graduated bartending school—something I always had on my bucket list, and I'm an ordained minister, which is a title I put to use recently to officiate my brother's wedding. I bring my business acumen and people skills to the table, which blend perfectly with my love of the Tucson area to make me a highly qualified REALTOR®.

I'm a Midwesterner from Michigan, and while I miss the greenery and abundant waterfronts of my hometown, I've fallen in love with Tucson's beautiful weather, amazing sunsets, and surrounding mountains that simply beg to be hiked.

My other greatest joy is my daughter, who graduated from the University of Arizona with honors. She makes me proud every day, and I make sure to tell her that often. Aside from working, I enjoy photography, theater, hiking, fly fishing, cooking, reading, home design, working out, and spending time with my loved ones. Travel is my passion A few years ago a took a three-month, 1,100 mile hike across the beautiful hills of France, the Pyrenees, and Spain. I carried a twenty-pound pack on my back and never set foot in a motorized vehicle the entire time. It was an amazing experience, my only regret is having to leave my stilettos behind.

Client Reviews

Edye is a class act. She became my real estate quite by accident and it was a happy one. The agent I was working with had an emergency and Edye stepped in. From the beginning I felt at ease. I know quickly if an agent is "into" houses or not. My experience (with many agents) is that- ironically- many have limited interest in homes/houses. It's a LOT more fun to hang out with an agent who has a passion for homes! She has an informal, easy-going, yet engaged manner. She made the investment in time, as a buyer's agent must, without knowing if we'd end up buying but never applied pressure nor caused us to feel rushed. Because we were seeking an investment property, and not a place to live, we were browsing and not feeling pressured ourselves to go forward with a deal. Yet, happily, we did end up finding and buying a house. Throughout the process, Edye was there to champion our needs and wants. Familiar with working with out of town buyers, she was 100% on top of communications. A fast and thorough responder is highly important to me, perhaps even most important. And at closing, even her congratulatory note, wine bottle and pair of wine glasses, files on a thumb-drive, placed at the house, were "above and beyond" the call of duty. I do hope we have the opportunity to work together again, thank you, Edye.

Agent Edye Riharb has gone beyond all of my expectations. She always has a positive attitude, and goes out of her way to keep me informed and answer all of my questions. She has worked hard to find potential buyers and to take them through the properties, and always tries to work with my schedules.

Edye was the best realtor that we could’ve ever ask for. When we began our house search we came across many realtors, that were not honest and kept giving us confusing information. Once we found Edye, everything was super smooth and she supported us in the stressful times! Long realty made the process smooth and easy! Thank you so much, we love Edye!

Our home was on the market twice. I found out realtor on InstaGram. Where she had posted an Ad about herself. I contacted her. We met up and I hired her she listed the house, and sold it. Very happy and she got it done. I would highly recommend her. Excellent Job
