Long Realty’s management team is getting a new look as Cathy Erchull assumes the post of Designated Broker for the company, taking over from John Mijac. July 29 will be her first day on the job.
It’s a homecoming of sorts for Erchull, who began in real estate in 1999 as a sales agent with Long Realty. Now, after an extended sojourn with another large local brokerage, she’s back where she started—but with much greater responsibility.
Erchull’s realty career includes time in sales; teaching as an Arizona Department of Real Estate instructor and acting as branch manager and regional manager for her previous brokerage. She obtained her Arizona broker’s license in 2002 and is a Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) member.
Her professional service includes stints as President of both the Tucson Association of REALTORS® and the Multiple Listing Service of Southern Arizona (MLSSAZ), a wholly owned TAR subsidiary. She also served as a Regional Vice President of the Arizona Association of REALTORS®, was named Realtor of the Year for 2018 and is currently serving as a Tucson Association Charitable Foundation board member and Chair of the Professional Development Committee and Co-Chair of Risk Committee for TAR.
The Designated Broker is central to the core business of any brokerage: selling real estate. Duties include reviewing sales contracts and employment agreements, supervising company advertising, ensuring sales agents and associate brokers keep current with continuing-education requirements, dispute resolution and in general overseeing the efforts of the company’s licensed sales pros.
“Cathy is an excellent problem-solver with high ethical standards and a deep knowledge of our industry,” said Rosey Koberlein, CEO of Long Companies. “The designated broker carries tremendous responsibility, and Cathy is a perfect fit for the position. We’re delighted that she has joined us.”
Mijac, Erchull’s predecessor, was a veteran of many years with smaller brokerages before joining Long Realty in 2012. He was named designated broker in 2015. His new position will be branch manager of the company’s top-performing Foothills office.
