Client Reviews

As a real estate broker in the Philadelphia suburbs, I'll often have a client ask me for a recommendation to an agent in another market. In the Tucson area, Ricardo is my go-to person. Knowledgeable, professional, approachable.

Ricardo has got to be one of the most proficient Realtors in Tucson. His insight, experience and wisdom helps eliminate that nervous anxiety that a buyer or seller might feel. He is patient, professional and listens... all characteristic of someone who actually cares!!. When Ricardo helped me buy my home last year he negotiated hard got me a good deal and worked closely with my lender (also a rock star!) at Peoples Mortgage Company to make sure all the paper work was filed so there were no surprises at closing. If you are looking for a hard working/ trustworthy Realtor... talk to Ricardo Coppel!

James M

Ricardo is a top notch realtor. As a lender I have had the pleasure of working on several transactions with Ricardo & Team Coppel. The level of service he provides to his clients accompanied by his industry expertise makes for a great experience. I would recommend Ricardo to anyone looking to purchase a home.

With esteem approbation I would recommend Mr. Ricardo Coppel

Glenn S

Ricardo Coppel, years of experienced were exposed with his expertise in the market finding my family the home of our dreams within the asked budget. He was readily available whenever there was a question or concern. When he did not have the answer, he was straight forward and fast on getting the answer. He was able to negotiate saving my family well over five thousand dollars on closing costs. As a prior service member, I take pride in dress and appearance/professionalism and he was always dressed for success and spoke clear and direct. I highly Recommend Ricardo Coppel for anyone looking to buy or sell their next home.

I have worked with Ricardo 4 times in the course of 8 years. He has helped me buy 2 homes and sell 2 homes. Each time it was an utterly flawless experience. He isn't a one trick realtor that just does bare minimums looking for his fee. He will consult, ask you about what you want and can  afford, what you want to sell/buy for and give advice. If you both decide that selling or buying at the time isn't right then he won't pressure. He will give advice on best times to sell/buy and give honest assessments on offers. He knows what improvements yield the best returns. What people in the Tucson area market are looking for when they buy. He never steered me wrong. I would listen to friends buying/selling with other realtors and I would see all the hoops they were jumping through and I immediately thought, "Isn't your realtor supposed to be doing that?" Ricardo always took care of those things. I never felt sidelined because I wasn't buying massively expensive homes. I was a customer and no matter the size of the sale I came equally with all his other customers. I swear, if he ever got sick of selling and buying he could be an interior decorator too. When selling he took the best photos that got the most interest and I followed his advice to a T on colors/painting and furniture layout and I got traffic on my sales. I've bought and sold tons of big ticket items in my life from pools, cars, kitchen remodels, landscaping, etc. I have never worked with anyone that made me feel more at ease and was more professional. He also has a ton of contacts in the home improvement business and they follow the same code as him; Treat people right and it comes back to you. His referrals were always great.

Ricardo is an excellent Realtor. He brings years of experience, knowledge, and professionalism. He listened to my needs and desires and gave me honest advice and direction. He got me top dollar for my home when it sold and saved me money when I bought a new one. Ricardo is the only choice for  all of my real estate needs. I will always use Ricardo in the future and I refer all of my family and friends to him.

Hans S

Ricardo Coppel is a professional and knowledgeable relator who has assisted me and my family in selling and buying multiple properties. His experience in the Tucson market and willingness to work hard is second to none. I strongly recommend Ricardo for all your real estate needs.

Fankie A

We decided to move to Tucson last spring and thankfully I called Ricardo Coppel to help me find the right home. His knowledge of the business is exceptional, and he has connections all over Tucson. I needed a place to live a few weeks before we closed on the house and he helped me find the ideal 

James L

Ricardo has helped my family with 2 homes in the Tucson area, the most recent was on February 2017. He has great knowledge of the marketplace and is a good negotiator with the seller and their agent.

Robin A

We have worked with Ricardo and his team both for investment property and our primary residence. He is remarkable in his professional attention to detail. We feel that Ricardo has saved us thousands of dollars. We have recommended him to friends who also have been very happy.

My partner and I had a very specific location and type of house we were looking for, our list of "must haves" was quite long. Ricardo did an amazing job helping us find the right place. He was very patient and understanding through the whole (extensive) search process. His persistence in finding  the right home for us was admirable. When working with Ricardo you can tell that he has your best interest in mind. We love our house and owe it all to Ricardo! Ricardo come with our highest recommendation!

Max a

Ricardo did an excellent job selling our townhome. He was responsive and extremely helpful. He was a great help in getting the house ready for sale and provided excellent service. We were out of town sellers and he was able to coordinate everything for us. The house sold quickly and the closing went  very smoothly. I would highly recommend him to both sellers and buyers. Thank you Ricardo for all your help...

Henry a

Ricardo is highly professional yet personal and caring. He went above and beyond to help me find professionals to prepare our house for market, and stayed in constant communication about every detail. I have a spouse with major health issues and he was understanding and supportive of ways to  lighten my load. Our house sold quickly and his quality photos really brought out the highlights for marketing purposes. He and his team were a pleasure to work with!

This is my testimony about my wonderful real estate experience with Ricardo J. Coppel. My elderly mother died suddenly and I was assigned the responsibility of cleaning up and selling her home. She had lived there forever and had an overflow of furnishings, collectables and storage. I lived out of town and at the time was grieving the loss of my mother. Ricardo J. Coppel was recommended to me by a realtor in my town. I meet with Ricardo and told him if he wanted the listing he would have to supervise the clean up and provide the sources. He did everything he promised and more. Ricardo was my rock during that stressful time. He was there for me every step of the way with guidance and kindness. First day on the market we had four offers, two above asking sales price. Ricardo made the process very easy in an highly professional way. Thank you Ricardo from the bottom of my heart.

I feel very lucky to have been able to work with Ricardo Coppel in regards to my home purchases and when selling my home. He has assisted me and my family in purchasing homes over the years and he makes the process as easy as possible. His knowledge and expertise far surpasses all of my  expectations and on top of that he's incredibly easy to work with and friendly. The first time I utilized his assistance in purchasing a home it was around the Christmas holiday and even with all of the holiday scheduling issues he always made himself available to take us out on tours of homes, answer questions, or provide assistance in anyway he could. When we were ready to upgrade our home, he helped us prepare it for sale and worked with me on finding and purchasing a new home, even while I was out of state working. I've had nothing but good experiences with working with Ricardo and his team and I recommend reaching out to him if you are needing any assistance with either buying or selling a home.

Fred H

I highly recommend Ricardo Coppel. He made the process of selling my home so easy, from start to finish. His real estate experience and professionalism resulted in a smooth, quick sale at asking price. My fiancé and I are also selling his home with Ricardo and will be buying a new house through  him, as well.

Heather W.

I cannot say enough nice things about Ricardo, he made the home selling process effortless. What I loved the most was how much he loved my home from the start. He told me immediately “I can sell your home, it is so beautiful.” Ricardo has such a positive attitude and spirit about him. During the buyer/seller negotiating process he had a very positive attitude, he was confident and respectful to both the seller and buyers. From start to finish, Ricardo was always available to answer any questions I had about the selling process. Ricardo helped to set up the staging for me and arranged an appraisal to get the best price for my home. I also feel he went above and beyond to help with the care of my home (I live out of town) and made sure it always looked great to potential buyers. I would highly recommend Ricardo to anyone selling or buying a home. He was a pleasure to work with.

Suzanne T.

Working with Team Coppel is always a wonderful experience! Ricardo goes above and beyond with his customer service as well as his follow-up. It is clear that he specializes in making clients feel happy and secure with their purchase. Thank you Team Coppel and keep up the amazing work you do for Tucsonans.

Derrick Polder

I have bought and sold many homes over several decades. The experience of working with Ricardo was exceptional. His level of professionalism and competence is beyond compare. We highly recommend him to any prospective buyers or sellers.

Terry Donaldson

My family and I offer the strongest and most enthusiastic recommendation for Ricardo Coppel. Ricardo attentively heard our family needs early on. He was kind to explain to us the processes of being a new home buyer. He cheerfully gave us plenty of home visits for us to compare and understand the market. Ricardo always had unbiased advice to the best of our future interest. He fought for us and push not us but others in order to get our home. Ricardo showed great heart and kindness by always being playful with my daughter, listening carefully to my wife's expectations and balancing my own concerns. My family and I feel like we truly got to know him and vice-versa. I will always remember the day when even though Ricardo had prior important personal commitments, he opened his schedule to meet us and review in detail a potential offer. He always went far and beyond his duties. Even it took us more than 20 homes and more than a couple of months to finally close on our best-fit home, I never felt in a rush, with the contrary, Ricardo always gave me alternative options and potential scenarios for us to smoothly transition. For those Spanish speakers who would love to have a more personal and relax home buying experience please allow me to say: Ricardo es un profesional, experto en el mercado y gran consejero para ti y tu familia.

Alejandro Recio Boiles

Ricardo Coppel is extremely organized, very skilled in his work. Our sale of our house went so smoothly. We could always depend on Team Coppel to be available when needed. My husband and I are very thankful and have recommended Ricardo Coppel to others.

Terese Anderson

Ricardo, as well as Miro, were stellar in my first home buying experience. They were faced with the difficult task of helping me buy a condo site unseen as I was moving from Wisconsin to Tucson and could not view units myself. I would have been able to close with as much confidence as I did without Ricardo and Miro's amazing effort. They went above and beyond expectations and what was expected of them as real estate agents throughout the entire process. They took me on live video tours of many units I was interested in and were in constant contact helping me sort through available units. I ended up choosing a unit with the option of full furnishment, and Ricardo negotiated a great side deal on the pricing (from $5000 to $2200). I messed up the cashier's check meant to pay the furniture deal and Ricardo temporarily paid for it out of his own pocket to make sure we didn't miss out on the deal. Ricardo was always keeping me updated on the closing process so I was in the loop, which helped calm my nerves about the process. I cannot recommend Ricardo and Miro enough and I will be referring everyone I know moving to the Tucson area to Ricardo and Miro.

Dr. Daniel Destiche

We just closed on our family home thanks to Ricardo. He brings excellence at every step of the process. He is kind and listens well to what you need as a client. He is also firm and a thoughtful negotiator when needed. Throughout the process, he guides you and is in constant contact. After three home sales with Ricardo, why do we keep going back? He is the best and he knows Tucson.

Charles Schnarr

I’ve been working with Ricardo for some time now, and would highly recommend his services. I appreciate that he is very organized, punctual and communicates well with me, his clients and others involved in the transaction. The fast moving Tucson real estate market requires a competent, knowledgeable and detail oriented agent like Ricardo.
