(TUCSON, AZ.) – Long Realty Company is pleased to welcome experienced sales associate Jill Rich to the Long Realty team.
Rich will work out of Long Realty’s River/Campbell branch office, 1890 E. River Road, where she will specialize primarily in residential sales throughout Tucson, Oro Valley, Marana and Vail.
Rich has a long tradition of helping buyers and sellers and brings with her nearly 30 years of experience in the real estate industry. Previously, Rich was a top producer with another real estate firm and holds a variety of prestigious designations, including Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), Graduate REALTOR Institute (GRI), and Certified Residential Specialist (CRS).
“We are thrilled to welcome a real estate professional of Jill’s caliber to the Long Realty family,” said Rosey Koberlein, CEO of Long Companies. “Her impressive credentials, expert knowledge of the local real estate market and remarkable passion for the community make her a valued asset to our current team.”
Rich is an avid supporter of the Tucson community and is involved with several local organizations, including the local FEMA chapter, where she serves as board Chair, and the Jewish Community Relations Council, serving as Social Action Co-Chair. She also acts as Board Member, Vice President, Social Action Chair and Fundraising Chair for Temple Emanu-El.
An advocate for Tucson’s homeless population, Rich works closely with both the Tucson Planning Council for the Homeless and Interfaith Coalition for the Homeless, as well as the Primavera Foundation, a meal provider for over 100 men twice a year for Primavera Shelter.
Rich has received numerous honors and awards for her work in the community, including the Tucson Association of Realtor’s 2007 Roy Drachman Community Achievement Award and the 2009 Volunteer of the Year Award from the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness.
Rich, an Illinois native and University of Arizona graduate, currently resides in Tucson with her husband of 29 years, Jim.
