Michelle  and Ralph Hartley,What  can I say, Michelle  and Ralph you are the  best team, patient,  make it happen type of people, and always there  to support  the sellers.  You both  went  out of your way to  make this deal happen, we called upon you for  so many things,  and both  of you were  always there  for  us. You never gave up, you kept  plugging  away with  open  houses, advertising  and putting up with  our  little  quirks about  not having a sign outside. You always provided  the  latest  information   about  the  market  place, kept  us informed   on a weekly  basis, made sure that  the  house was always looking  good,  and would  inform  us if something  in the  house needed  attention.   If we ever come back to the Tucson area, we wouldnot  hesitate  to give you a call for  our housing  needs. It was a long road,  but both of you made it a little easier for  us. Sincerely,Alan & Tricia

Dear Mr. White, Although  we share the same last name, you don't  know me, but I was a client  of Michelle  and Ralph Hartley of your  office  in the sale of my property  in Shadow Hills. After  a very disastrous  6 months with  Realty Executives (they showed  my house once in 6 mo. 24 days) I listed with  the  Hartleys. What  a difference,  they  presented  a marketing  plan they  listened  to our concerns, they showed  respect for our property  and they communicated with  us on a regular schedule.  They knew the neighborhood,   after  all they do live in it, and the whole climate  of selling our proprty  changed for the better. We are not settleed  in our new location,  but this change after  25 years in Shadow Hills was made much easier by the work  of Michelle  and Ralph Hartley. Sincerely, Frank E. 'Pat' White  Jr. & E. Lorine White

Michelle  & Ralph, Thanks so much for  all your  help in finding  our new home.   We're  very happy with  our purchase and Abby  is enjoying  running  around in her backyard.  And thanks  so much for the windchimes-they  are now hanging from our citrus tree.We'll  be sure to refer  our friends  to you guys. Thanks again,Jenna and Rosamond

Dear Mr.Woods, I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle and Ralph for three house transactions duringthe seven years I have lived in Tucson.  After my stint of house hunting in Texas, I want to let you know how superior these two realtors are. I have worked primarily with  Michelle, but also with  Ralph.  Michelle is my go-to-girl!  She is efficient, personable, competent and I always feel that she is indeed working  "with  and for me". She exudes professionalism  and goes the extra mile.  I appreciate  her immensely and hope that you realize what a great asset she and Ralph are for your company. I had to place a mirror  under the nose of my realtor  in Texas to make sure that she was breathing. Worthless experience. What a difference in working with the Hartley's.  Mary Margaret  Peppeard

Dear Mr. Woods, I am writing  to register my satisfaction with the representation I received from Ralph and MIchelle Hartley on the sale of Placita Tuberia.They were highly professional from start to finish and very knowledeable of local market conditions. Their advice from start to finish was spot on and they worked dilligentlv to negotiate terms which were fair to myself as the seller and to my buyer.Their communicatiion  skills were excellent and every question answered in a timely and accurate manner. I have had considerable real estate experience in past years but I was rusty and therefore  grateful to have such fine advice. I have rarely had dealings with such capable, friendly  and sincere individuals.  I never doubted their honesty from start to finish. What I had expected to have been an agonizing process was smooth and painless thanks to these gentle folks. I would endorse and/or  recommend them with enthusiasm. I truly  received two brokers for the price of one, as they worked in tandem very efficiently. Very truly yours,Tony Heath

It is also very apparent that you do too!  It was truly a pleasure working with you. Best wishes for a wonderful  & productive year.Warm regards,Kathy

Your involvement  provided some comfort  and security during what seemed like a lot of unpredictability and uncertainty.   I will always be thankful  for your help.Most sincerely, George

Dear Mr. Woods: Last week, I closed on a property that I wished to sell. I had inherited this property and sure didn't need a second home. It was my good fortune to select Michelle and Ralph Hartley to represent me.  I could not have made a better decision. They personify the term "professional"  in addition to being very helpful, warm, and friendly.  It turned out to be a fine experience for me and these two "pros" made the process seem easy. Their guidance was extremely valuable. However, I came to realize that selling a home is anything but easy and, in fact, a rather complicated business. I was amazed at the number of forms and the amount of legalities that are involved. Clearly, Long Realty is in good hands if most of your representatives are comparable to Michelle and Ralph Hartley! The bar has been set quite high. Frederick Roby,Ph.D. Professor Emeritus

The Harleys were fantastic in helping us navigate the complexities of selling our current house and buying a new house. They explained the process thoroughly, and answered all of our questions. They also have a great network of contacts that helped us prepare our 25 year old house for inspections and respond to the issues identified. We would use the Hartleys again next time, and would recommend them to others with no hesitation.

Ralph and Michelle Hartley have represented us numerous times over the last twenty years. In every transaction they have handled every little detail while always keeping us updated.

William &

Ralph and Michelle Hartley were AMAZING. They explained every step of the way if I needed to know, and anything that didn't require any action on my part they handled quickly and quietly. The house closed within a month of being listed. I can not recommend them enough!

Joel F

Absolutely the best. Far exceeded my expectations in every category. I give them my highest recommendation.
