I have lived and worked in the White Mountains since 1978 not only do I love the beauty of the landscape (with the trees, lakes, mountains and meadows). The wild life is amazing, I never know what kind of animal I might see, even in my own backyard. My husband and I have raised our five children here and now enjoying watching our six grandchildren growing up here. You couldn't ask for better schools and the majority of the people I've met the last 34 year are so friendly and kind. I love helping them find that special spot to lay roots, hope they will always love it a much as I do.

Ricci A. Nielsen
My background prior to becoming a Realtor, consisted of working for IBM for 30 years in San Jose, California and Tucson, Arizona. I helped open the IBM plant in 1978 in Tucson and became a development engineer working on tape storage products. I retired in June 1993 in Tucson and went right into real estate school that year.
After getting licensed I went to work for a Long Realty in Tucson and became a Senior Associate Broker, and stayed with them until 2005. I was very active selling real estate in Tucson and I specialized in residential and land sales and I also did some commercial sales during that time.
In my first two years in real estate I graduated from the prestigious Realtors Institute (GRI) and also received the coveted designation of Certified Residential Specialist (CRS).
My heart has always been in the mountains as my wife and I were raised in a mountain community in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, so it was natural for us to gravitate to the White Mountain area. We start coming here many years ago and in 1999 bought a place in Pinetop. We came here at least 1 week every month to spend time enjoying the fishing and beauty of the area. In 2005 we decided to move to the White Mountains permanently to work, play and raise our grandchildren.
When I first moved here in 2005 I managing a real estate office in Pinetop for Long Realty and after awhile decided to go back into sales. I work in sales for a few years and decided to accept a position as Designated Broker for Madico Real Estate in Lakeside. I enjoyed that position very much and when that company closed it doors I went to work for Ashley Realty. I stayed with them until the broker/owner decided to retire.
In March of 2014 I was lucky enough to meet a wonderful Broker at Cedar Ridge Real Estate and decided to go to work for her as a Branch Manager for the Pinetop office and have been there ever since.
We are loving the people and the area here and have no regrets for moving here! We love it here in the White Mountains and intend to be here for the rest of our lives.
