What Our Clients Say


Darci was so skillful throughout all phases of the successful sale on the 50th anniversary of Architect Robert Swaim’s mid century residence masterpiece, it’s hard to choose an aspect for singular praise.

She combined aesthetic sensitivity with market savvy to do a superb presentation of the home. What’s more, she did an excellent job counseling and guiding our thinking during negotiations to close in a volatile market.

With all her outstanding qualities, what really stands out is her patient and deep listening. What a pleasure to feel always heard and understood with an authentic response. Rather than feeling ‘pitched’ we sensed genuine alignment. What a pleasure!

We would unquestionably return for Hazelbaker & Ranek’s services in a flash.


I am a first-time homebuyer and cannot thank Hazelbaker & Ranek enough for their professionalism, knowledge, and network in southern Arizona. I worked directly with Anne Ranek to purchase a townhouse during winter 2021-2022, a peak of Tucson housing market activity. Not only was she a consistent expert on every part of the process: financing, comparable properties, homeowners’ associations, utilities, repair/upkeep, contracts, and local, state, and federal housing laws---she was patient with a myriad of first-time buyer questions and stress. She is the best! Anne organized the inspection and provided clear communication between the seller, lender, and me. She and Darci understand the regional market on a comprehensive level and have amazing style---an eye for precision and knowing what makes a safe, beautiful home. I could not have bought my home without Anne and am so happy! She and Darci also created a community education workshop on topics like renting v. buying, first home, refinancing, laws and policies, and market dynamics. I enthusiastically recommend this brilliant team. Thank you for everything!

Before Darci was our Realtor®, she was our architect for a remodel of our 1940’s Spanish home. We worked with her because of her knowledge of old homes and her design sense, which she is well known for.

When it came time to change cities, Darci was the first person we called. She’s a beacon of knowledge on home construction and design, the local market, and Tucson as a whole.

We purchased this home during a very hectic time in the market, and Darci made us feel at ease throughout the process. The sale went off without a hitch, and to say we trust her expertise and taste is an understatement.


I can’t speak highly enough of Anne Ranek. After ironing out details, I went on a long-planned six-month stay in France, leaving the sale of my home in her hands. Unanticipated crises ensued, including a gas leak discovered at the house showing and an unhappy neighbor. Anne handled every crisis expertly, consulting only when necessary while arranging for and overseeing repairs. She managed competing offers with finesse, with a sale $35K above asking. I’ve done business with several Realtors® and realty companies. Anne is without question the best.
