After seventeen years as a general manager for United Van Lines, I decided to put my commercial sales and customer service experience to work as a REALTOR®. I know the relocation process inside and out, and work tirelessly to help people looking to settle into this community. I know, love, and am very active in Sierra Vista—I've been here for eighteen years, so you can trust me to guide you through the home buying or selling process with knowledge and enthusiasm to spare!
I've earned numerous awards throughout my past careers, including commendations for exceeding expectations in the realm of sales and quality assurance. I carried that momentum forward into my career in real estate, completing five sales in my first seven months by working hard for my clients. I know how to negotiate deals that satisfy buyers and sellers alike. In the event that my experience (or we can just say "age," because let's face it, I'm old) does not provide me with an answer to a question, I am confident that I can find a solution.
My favorite way to pass the time—when I'm not heaping love on my grandchildren—is to take my RV out and have side-by-side off-roading adventures. I also enjoy cycling, reading, and patrolling as a volunteer for the Sheriff Department. In fact, volunteer work is one of my passions; I was a member of the Sierra Vista Rotary Club for thirteen years, as well as a volunteer with the Tombstone School Board. I take great joy in the act of service, and bring that same positive attitude to my work as a REALTOR®.
Rick was great... We never met him in person but he kept us informed at all times as to what was happening with the selling of the property... Property was sold much sooner than we thought it would be... All negotiations were done long distance via email, and phone... I would highly recommend him...
We purchased a manufactured home in Hereford, AZ, from RicK Shelley at Long Realty. Rick went out of his way to get answers on various issues from the Seller who was out of state. He was very courteous and showed up on time at the home inspections. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone wanting to buy a home in the area.
Rick Shelley made our move possible & extremely easy coming from San Juan Capistrano, Ca. to Sierra Vista, Az. We found a house July 11th & moved in August 4th, with the assistance & expertise of our realtor Rick Shelley. Not only did he go out of his way to accommodate us but assisted us with all the inspections & utility transfers while we were in California. He found us the perfect house by giving of his personal time to familiarize us with the area that we knew nothing about. He really is the most dependable & reliable relator we have ever dealt with & we are so grateful & appreciate all he as done for us. We highly recommend him
It was our pleasure working with Rick Shelly he was very good at getting answers to all our question and was very professional. He made buying our new home a very pleasant experience even though we were living in Florida we put our complete trust in him and he came through. Being in the Real Estate business since 1982 I felt at ease letting Rick do his job and my husband and I want to say thank you I would recommend him to anyone who would ask for a Realtor.
