Dear Ralph & Michelle,I want to thank you for all of your hard work in selling our home. I appreciate both ofyour good sence of humor after the mortgage situation.I hope your summer has started off well.Thanks again,Maury Morse
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
Dear Ralph,I wish to personally "thank You" for your cooperation during our recent transaction. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work with a professional like yourself. Being a professional is what I strive for each and every day in running my business. 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
Dear Michelle & Ralph, Thank you so very much for helping to make our new home purchase a pleasant and easy transaction. You're amazing! We deeply want to thank you for your generous donation to Long Cares Foundation on our behalf. What a truly thoughtful gesture. Thank again for everything; we will definitely have you over for dinner soon. Love,Geralyn and Gerry
Dear Michelle & Ralph,I can't express enough appreciation for how you helped my family over these lastseveral months under some reallv difficult circumstances. Thank you for your your experience, compassion and patience. 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
Ralph and Michelle,Just a note to thank you for all your hard work to sell the house. I appreciate your time and effort, guidance, and support throught out this process. Again, thank you for all you have done. Hugs and Kisses,Kiki, Charlie & Tucker
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.
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!
Absolutely the best. Far exceeded my expectations in every category. I give them my highest recommendation.
