Betty Covey

Associate Broker / Co-owner

I have lived in Tucson since 1994. I love giving back to the community that I have lived and raised my children in. That is why I'm on the board of the Marana Chamber of Commerce and believe in the American dream. I have experienced it first-hand. So, now is the time to put my love of real estate and Tucson to work for you. I can help you find a beautiful new home or sell your current home. I will be with you every step of the way to understand the process and keep you on track until close of escrow. Let my experience work for you and make your dream of owning your own home come true.

David Winter

I‘ve been licensed to sell real estate in Arizona since 2001 and have helped hundreds of people achieve their real estate goals, whether it be a personal sale or purchase, an investment, or just advice on their particular situation. From 2013 to 2020, I was part of the management team at Long Realty, a role which allowed me to not only capitalize on my real estate background as an Associate Broker, but to utilize the skills I acquired through a 25 year career in retail management. I have been blessed with a beautiful family who all live in the Tucson area, which has allowed me to watch them grow to be amazing adults and provide me the enjoyment of being entertained by two adorable grandchildren.
