There is no better referral to receive then that from a grandparent or great grandparent that your family helped over 30 years ago.


Our first objective is to provide our clients with the information they need and want. The best decisions are educated decisions based on relevant, current information. Our second objective is to provide the best value. Since real estate is primarily a service industry what we offer is timely, thorough and worthwhile services that exceed expectations. We know the market. We know what we are doing. We know how to negotiate “Win-Win” transactions. Our “ALWAYS” objective is to create long lasting relationships. We continually strive to provide value long after we’ve met your needs. And what we really love to do is to help you get your WANTS, those things that really make life fun. Put more money in the bank, keep more of the money you make, have your dream house, have your dream kitchen, exceed expectation and live a life by design.


“Upon moving to Tucson to begin looking for a house, I arrived with a rental car, a hotel room, and the very good fortune of having developed an acquaintance with Mr. Steve Rice. Steve Rice graciously took on the responsibility of insuring I purchased, not a piece of real estate or a house, but my new home in the Tucson area. In his own words, “I didn’t accept that responsibility lightly.” Words that rang true throughout the entire home buying process! Steve Rice’s professionalism, personal integrity and sheer dedication to his profession were clearly evident from our very first meeting. He consistently went above and beyond the call of duty to make certain that I had a comprehensive perspective on a variety of neighborhoods and areas within Tucson. This included keeping me abreast of the latest market information and unique characteristics and advantages of specific communities.

I genuinely appreciate Steve Rice for his sincere interest in finding the best possible property to be my new home. His many acts of genuine human kindness, compassion, and his understanding the challenges involved in making an international move greatly facilitated my relocation to Tucson. He took care of the extra details that to many are overwhelming in the midst of moving, to include, arranging for a home inspection, referring contractors who carried out repairs and maintenance to the property, coordinating home owner’s warranty repairs, arranging utility connections, termite inspection, and even facilitating reimbursement for some expenses incurred by the seller.

Steve Rice continues to keep in touch and to be a wonderful resource for referrals; he has become a person whom I am honored to call a friend. Why Rice – because Steve Rice is a man who takes great pride in his profession and he is a man you can truly trust to lead you through the process of buying and selling real estate. Integrity, trust and dedication are all synonymous with Steve Rice.”

“I can’t recommend Steve enough. He really went the full mile for me. In addition, he knows an incredible number of local people in the real estate and home maintenance industries who he can recommend for whatever need you might have (even a good boot repair place!). As a total newcomer to Tucson, I found this encyclopedic knowledge of people, services, and places wonderfully helpful.”

D. Barnett – Central Tucson


“I’m starting on the arduous business of assembling relevant papers for my 2014 taxes.  Jennifer, I just want to say that it is a pleasure dealing with someone who is thorough and professional.  Your providing me with all the receipts is very much appreciated.”
