About Us
About Rob & Catherine – Tucson Arizona Real Estate Agents

Catherine grew up outside of Philadelphia and Rob lived in Falls Church, VA.  After graduating from Mary Baldwin College, Catherine signed on with Delta Air Lines as a Flight Attendant. During her 31 year career, she was based in Atlanta, Chicago and ended up in Dallas.

Rob attended William & Mary which led to a career in the Computer Services field starting in the DC area. Seasonal management assignments included stints in Detroit, Chicago & Los Angeles, eventual relocation to Miami as Regional Director. Rob later accepted a promotion to Director of Field Operations which included a move to corporate headquarters in Dallas.  Adding Director of the International Market to his resume, Rob’s client locations included Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Paris, Belgium, Canada and the United Kingdom.

So how did we get to Tucson and Real Estate? Catherine started a jewelry business in Dallas and during our buying trips to the Tucson Gem show, we became enamored with Tucson.

In 2005 Catherine took early retirement and we moved to Tucson. With Rob’s extensive sales background we thought selling real estate would be a breeze, not realizing the amount of work that goes on behind the scenes.

However, it paid off as in 2008 our total sales  placed us  in the top 8% of all US Realtors. We love the business and are as excited as our clients when they are successful in Buying or Selling a home. As referrals comprise most of our business, we strive to excel in customer service, personal attention and seamless transactions. Just ask our clients.

Thank you all.

  • What Our Clients Say

    Sellers and buyer’s need to become more meticulous when selecting the right realtor. The realty laws and regulations in Arizona are constantly changing. Unbelievable allowances are given to realtors, which if you hire the wrong one could end up costing you undue stress and financial hardship.

    Don’t be swayed by a realtor from the large amount of sales they’ve achieved, or their association with other organizations, or fancy advertising. Realtors are salespeople and are trained to get what they need and often forget about the actual client and the client’s needs and desires. Due diligence is advised to seek what you, the client, needs and expects when hiring the right realtor. In times when identify theft is on the rise, now’s the time to be cautious.

    Fortunately, Tucson has two top realtors, Rob and Catherine Hallberg, that came to our rescue when we wanted to sell our second house. Extremely professional, well mannered, and their ethics are far beyond expectations. This dynamic duo will surprise you at every turn of your sale or purchase.

    They will key in on communication with you and they’ll never loose the ultimate goal to which you desire to achieve. Don’t learn the hard way as we did by hiring the wrong realtor. Do your sale or purchase the right way the first time and hire Rob and Catherine Hallberg to represent you! These two are the cat’s meow!

  • What Our Clients Say

    After interviewing several REALTORS®, my wife and I decided to retain Rob and Catherine Hallberg of Long Realty to represent us in the selling of our home. We based our decision to hire them based upon their personable and likeable demeanor, extensive real estate knowledge and years of experience in sales. Most importantly though was their commitment to us and to represent us fairly and honestly.

    They provided service which went well above and beyond service normally provided by other relators. Rob  and Catherine were always accessible and promptly answered our questions and addressed our concerns in a skillful and knowledgeable fashion while maintaining a high level of professionalism. Rob and Catherine were diligent and knew the latest and current market trend in relation to a fair market value and asking price for our home.

    We sold our home to another one of their clients in a very short amount of time. This sale occurred mainly because both Rob and Catherine Hallberg knew their profession while actively and truly listening to both the buyers and sellers during the entire sales process.

    For my wife and me, having REALTORS® who actually listened and represented us, the clients, was a factor that we appreciated. We sold our home quickly with minimal issues or hassles. When an issue occurred, Rob and Catherine promptly addressed and corrected the situation or answered our concern(s) to our satisfaction. For my wife and me, we would definitely retain them again if we decide to purchase another home.

    If you are thinking of selling or buying a home and desire a professional team of REALTORS® who truly believe in honesty and personal integrity while servicing their client’s interests and desires above their own interests, then Rob and Catherine Hallberg are the ideal real estate agents. We highly recommend Rob and Catherine Hallberg of Long Realty.

  • What Our Clients Say

    “We had a wonderful experience. The agents , Catherine and Rob Hallberg, were efficient, extremely helpful, and knowledgable. Catherine Hallberg had worked with me for a number of years, sending new listings as they became available so we were very familiar with the Tucson/Vail area and she understood our expectations. We successfully found and purchased a home in record time. “

    John & Joanne Eustis (2018)
  • What Our Clients Say

    Moved to Texas from Tucson. Rob & Cathering undertook to sell my vacant home. They covered everything, got top dollar, and watch the vacant home for me. Easy to work with, conscientious, Rob even went above and beyond by sending me an important item I left behind in the house. If I was still in Tucson, I would list with them in a heartbeat!

    Ken & Dorothy Moyes (2018)
  • What Our Clients Say

    I have been working with Catherine and Rob Hallberg for at least two years to find the “right” property opportunity, somewhat complicated by the fact that I live over 1,500 miles away. They worked diligently and never gave up on me. They were so caring and professional, and I would highly recommend them to ANYONE looking for property in the Tucson area. Especially if you are not currently living in the Tucson area! Their attention to detail was so impressive, their Customer Service was unmatched, and I now consider them my friends! Thanks to Catherine and Rob, hardest working realtors in Pima Country!

    Amazing Realtors!!! When buying a home you don’t want to settle. Rob and Catherine made sure we were happy with our choice, no matter how many homes we had to look at. Even after we purchased our home, months later, we had questions and both didn’t hesitate for a second to help us out. We love our home!!

    Eric & Charista Harristhal (2018)
  • What Our Clients Say

    First time home buyers in Tucson AZ. Rob and Catherine were always available day or night and helped us find a wonderful home. They are a down to earth team and always had our best interest in mind.
    They worked well with the lenders and negotiated with sellers for contractor work to help close the sale. When looking for a home they stayed well within our budget and we never felt pressured or uncomfortable with their recommendations.
    They went above and beyond with meeting our needs. We looked at the city of Tucson and surrounding areas and they were very flexible with their schedule and always on time!
    We had a few prospective homes that had red flags and Rob and Catherine provided valuable advice. For the home we ultimately purchased they recommended great contractors/inspectors who were very thorough and knowledgeable.
    My husband and I highly recommend Rob and Catherine! Thanks again!

    Our experience with the Hallbergs was outstanding. From the beginning they were very detail-oriented and knew exactly what needed to be accomplished in order to get my house sold. They outlined the process step by step. They marketed the house with beautiful pictures, flyers and post cards. They have a list of repair people to take care of any repairs. They work with you through the closing and beyond They are true professionals!

    Brandon & Britinie Parks (2016)
  • What Our Clients Say

    Working with Rob and Catherine was the best home selling experience in my life. They are knowledgeable in the local real estate market. They priced our house right within the sweet spot with respect to market. As the result, the house sold faster than we anticipated. They have a have good sense of what needs to be done, as well as not needed, to sell a house. Their recommendations to which repairs and reconditioning are to be done in advance were right on, which led to a simple inspection/repairs process. They acted as our remote proxy, because we moved out of state just as the house went out on the market. Their representation gave us piece of mind that our house was in good hands. The bottom line is: we recommend them as selling agents to anyone considering selling house in Tucson area.

    Dmitry & Victoria Reyder (2016)
  • What Our Clients Say

    Catherine and Rob were very thorough in the process of selling my home. They are extremely organized and helped me achieve realistic goals regarding the sale of my house. The purchase of my new home was equally satisfying. Catherine and Rob were diligent in their communication with the seller and always available to represent me when I was not available. I am so happy with my new home and grateful to have had such ethical, knowledgeable and business savvy people help me through the process. Since 2011, Catherine and Rob have helped me sell one house and buy two homes.

    Rob & Catherine both went above and beyond to take care of us through a difficult transaction, completed long distance.

Our Promise To You_edited-1The conduct of Real Estate professionals in Arizona is regulated by law and enforced by the Arizona Department of Real Estate.  Many Real Estate Agents, ourselves included, also belong to the National Association and Arizona Association of REALTORS®, who require even higher standards of conduct. REALTORS® must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

 In addition to our strict adherence to these governing bodies, we have also set our own professional standards of conduct, which we call, “Our Promise to You”.

Communications, Open and Often: We pride ourselves in providing our clients with timely and complete information on all aspects of Buying or Selling a home.  Clients selling homes are contacted at least weekly and whenever their home is shown. Buyers are notified as soon as homes become available, and contacted almost daily once a home is under contract. 

Integrity, Always: In our business, there is nothing more important than integrity.  We will always be 100% open and honest in all aspects of our client relationship. In fact, sometimes I am criticized for providing too much information, but I like to know all of the details and assume our clients prefer the same.

Responsiveness, Fast: Time is of the essence in Real Estate; homes can be won or lost while waiting. We always respond to calls, emails and texts as soon as possible and always within 24 hours.

Knowledge, Complete: As Associate Brokers, we have made a commitment to continually increasing and improving our knowledge of Real Estate.  We attend more than twice the number of required Continuing Education Classes in order to stay up to date on all changes.

Our Clients say it best, however, and we recommend you hear what they have to say.
