(TUCSON, AZ.) Long Companies is pleased to announce the 85th Anniversary of Long Realty. Long Companies will hold a press party on May 18, 2011 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. to display the history of Long Realty and the influences they have made in Arizona. Press must R.S.V.P to get a pass for the event.

"This event really will showcase how Arizona, especially Tucson, has been a hub of real estate ever since Long Realty opened its doors," said RoseyKoberlein, CEO of Long Companies. "We owe our success to what founder Roy H. Long said, 'Take care of your customer and the business will take care of you,' and we continue to work this way every day."

Long Realty owns almost 30 percent of the market share in the Tucson metro area today. The company started in 1926 with three employees working out of a home in the same location as present-day McKale Center. Since then, they have gained over 1,300 real estate agents that work the housing markets in Arizona and into Mexico.

"The real estate industry is always changing," Koberlien said. "At Long Realty, we are too. Throughout our history we have become stronger, smarter and more innovative than ever. With new technology, the Internet, mobile apps and up-to-the-minute information, one thing hasn't changed: our commitment to our homebuyers and sellers. Together, we've built, lived and pioneered an industry that has helped more than 1.7 million Arizona families find their dream homes for 85 years."

Since 1926, Long Companies continue to further their mission "to create an exceptional real estate services experience that builds long lasting relationships." As they now offer realty, mortgage, title and insurance services, Long Companies uphold their core values of compassion, excellence, integrity, leadership and teamwork.

Long started the tradition in the 1920s to dedicate his time and money serving the community, whether through his business or volunteering. From the beginning, Long Realty was invested in helping with the first YMCA, the first Fiesta De Los Vaqueros Rodeo and securing land for Himmel Park. Today, Long Companies offer Long Realty Cares to help improve the quality of life for Arizonans. They also partner with Habitat for Humanity.
