Long Realty Co. agent closes the highest-price sale ever for a Tucson-area single-family home, according to information from the Multiple Listing Service of Southern Arizona.
The $6.9 million property, within The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, closed on May 10. Maria Anemone, an associate broker with Long’s Dove Mountain office, was the listing agent. The property was on the market “since right before Thanksgiving,” Anemone said, but sold at the listing price.
Featuring architectural design by Tucson’s own Ron Robinette and interior design by Baker+Hesseldenz (also Tucson-based), “The Point” offers four bedrooms, five baths and a host of amenities and ultra-luxe design features, starting with a 15-foot-tall walnut pivot door at the main entrance.
The home was built in 2020 and sits on a 3.13-acre lot, at 6355 W. Rockpoint Ridge Place in Marana—one of the highest-elevation sites in Dove Mountain, commanding both mountain and city views.
Anemone launched her real estate career in Tucson in 1993 and stepped up to a broker’s license in 2006. Among her specialties: relocations and vacation, retirement, golf and mega-luxury listings, with a focus on Dove Mountain, Oro Valley and the Catalina Foothills.
A consistent top performer and ranking among the top 1 percent of U.S. real-estate brokers, Anemone is a member of Long’s 1926 Circle of Excellence, Platinum level, for 2022—an honor reserved for the company’s highest-selling agents—and a vice president member of the company’s advisory Executive Council.
“People said I was crazy to take this on,” Anemone said, “but my goal was to set a record and make history. I built an amazing marketing plan with Long Realty and worked hard to make it happen.”
“It’s no surprise that it was Maria who brought this transaction home,” said Reneé Gonzales, CEO of Long Companies. “The luxury market at this level requires the very best in representation and marketing. With her lengthy record of seven-figure sales, Maria’s met that standard many times over. We’re so proud and happy she’s part of the Long Realty family.” Long Realty is the luxury real estate leader in Tucson and southern Arizona, with over $580 million in luxury sales in 2021, four times more than the nearest competitor.
