We were living in a two story home and wanted to move to a single story home on a larger lot with a pool. We called Lucy and she said that the perfect home had just come on the market that morning. She showed us the home that day and we wrote up the contract. There were three other buyers who also wanted it. Lucy made sure we had the better contract and we got the home.
Now the trick was to get our existing home sold quick to avoid two house payments! Lucy sold it for full price in 6 days and we were thrilled that she negotiated the contract terms so we would only have to move once!

Our Realtor in NJ referred us to Tony Ray Baker.
From our first meeting we could see that Tony ray loved his work and loved people. Tony Ray is enthusiastic, energetic, positive, conscientious and professional. He listened carefully to what we were looking for in a home and then showed us properties that matched our criteria.This ability to listen and focus on the client was very important to us as we had only a short time to find a home.
Tony Ray is also a creative person. He is able to visualize color and furnishings in a home even if there is nothing in it, and the walls are builders white. Tony Ray helped me picture my own things in a potential home and see multiple uses for the same room, i.e. a bedroom as a home office. Tony Ray knows the Tucson area and its real-estate market. He helped us find a beautiful home in Rancho Vistoso. We love the area and our home and is perfect for us.
When you call Tony Ray his answering machine states that he is your Real-estate agent for life. He truly means this. After an offer is presented and the home has "closed", Tony will continue to contact you about once a month. Through his phone calls and newsletter he continues to serve his clients by sharing helpful maintenance tips and contractor referrals. He made the entire process of searching for a home fun and as stress free as possible. We highly recommend him for anyone searching for a home in the Tucson area.

In January o f this year my husband, Matt and I were in Tucson looking to purchase a second home. We had a small window of time in which to accomplish this goal. Fortunately for us our real estate agent was Tony Ray Baker. He was highly recommended by a mutual acquaintance. He exceeded even that recommendation.
He was very knowledgeable about the real estate market, incredibly patient and personable. What impressed us was the level of professionalism that Tony Ray Baker exhibited in every transaction involved in purchasing our home. It was clear that his level of integrity and professionalism was reflected in all the other business people we dealt with in the process of closing on this home.
These qualities, from our perspective, would be enough to highly recommend Tony Ray Baker. He went far beyond what I feel most Realtors would do, furthermore, Tony made sure that we were connected to an honest and professional group of individuals that made our home buying experience in Tucson a very pleasant and easy one. He had a list of resources that he had screened and could highly recommend from painters to contractors to a list of good restaurants and even the best place to get your car washed.
Tony Ray took the stress out of moving and relocating and made the experience incredibly pleasant. We highly recommend him.

My fiance Jan and myself visited Tucson in December of 1998 to
familiarize ourselves with the area. We both agree the weekend
itinerary put together by Raytheon was an excellent program to insure
all employees received adequate information on which to make a
One major concern for most people faced with making the decision to move
to Tucson is the cost of housing. We heard several comments while in
Tucson and several since we have returned to Texas about the lack of
Jan and I would like to relate our experience while looking for housing
in Tucson. Tony Ray Baker contacted us prior to our departure from
Dallas to schedule an appointment to look at available homes. He asked
us what we were looking for, i.e., size, area, price range, etc., which
we were glad to share with him. He met us in Tucson with a list of
homes he had chosen which met our criteria. He showed us homes in more
than one area of the city, which allowed us to see the areas and the
variation in prices from one area to another. And, just as important,
he did not show us homes we felt were out of our price range. We came
home convinced there were homes in Tucson that met our expectations. We
owe this realization to Tony Ray for his understanding of our needs and
his efforts to show us exactly what we asked to see.
If I may, I would like to make a suggestion for future familiarization
trips. Have someone contact each employee to inquire about individual
housing needs. Then show each employee homes, in more than one area
that meets their criteria. It may be possible that most employees are
only seeing homes in the more expensive neighborhoods and they don't
realize that there are other options available. Tony Ray showed us the
East, West, North, and Northwest areas to give us the chance to evaluate
each area. It would be a plus if all employees had the same
personalized tour based on their individual criteria.

Tony Ray is simply the best!
Because of my husband's job career, we move A LOT! In 1999, we moved
from Tucson back to the Midwest and Tony Ray went above and beyond as
our real estate consultant with his professionalism, business savvy and
great negotiating skills! He made what could have been a difficult
transaction effortless for us.
As we closed the deal, Tony Ray was confident that we would move back to Tucson some day. He was right!
When my husband and I found out that we were moving back to Tucson in
2003 we immediately called Tony Ray! I was so excited to work with Tony
Ray again because of his passion and enthusiasm for his real estate
clients. He made himself available on our timetable so we could fly in
to look at houses. When Tony Ray said to us in 1999 that he was our
real estate consultant for life, he really meant it. Thanks Tony Ray:
we are your real estate clients for life!

My husband was having health issues so we needed to sell our home quickly and move to another state where our children could help with their father. We called Lucy and she came over immediatly. She spent two hours staging our home so it would look perfect. It looked so beautiful we wanted to stay but that wasnt an option.
We were so excited when she called and said that the first person who saw it wrote a contract for full price and wanted to close right away.
I was trying to sell my home For Sale By Owner and it was quickly becoming an aweful experience. A friend of mine referred me to Lucy. She made the house look great by staging it and doing things I had no idea would make the house more appealing to buyers. She counceled me on how to price the house since I was asking too much. I appreciate how honest she was and I trusted her. She got the house sold and found me a great new home to live in that I love. It was a very stressful time in my life and I appreciated all her help. Thanks Lucy, Manny
Our family grew overnight with the birth of our twin girls and our current home was busting at the seams. We talked with Lucy at length. She asked so many questions we hadn't even thought about.
Lucy was able to find us exactly what we were looking for. She listened to what we wanted and found it quickly. Now we have a spacious home on an acre with h room to grow and a garage for our boat & toys.
