Steve Long- "A native Tucsonan who knows Tucson!"

   A 4th generation Tucsonan

Steve’s roots go back to the days when Tumamoc Hill hosted the Carnegie Desert Botanical Laboratory. His great grandfather, Burton Bovee, rode his saddle horse to the Lab early every morning supporting the day-to-day operations while his importance grew & grew. In 1920, the director of the Lab absconded to Carmel, CA maintaining his absentee directorship directly through Bovee.

 

Have seen the "Old Pueblo" change quite a bit over the years! Know the city very well!

Graduated from Catalina High School in 1970.  Senior class president.

Graduated from University of Arizona in 1974.

First grandson to work at Long Realty.  Started cleaning Long Realty's one office on the weekends as a sophomore in high school in 1968, back when a text or an email was called a Western Union Telegram.

Obtained my real estate sales license in the early 1970's.  Became a branch manager, Designated Broker for Long Realty, and co-owner.
