Racken Survey Consultants was founded by Robert Acken, who began his land survey career in 1970. With over 40 years of land survey experience under our belts, you could say that we’ve seen just about every kind of land development project you can imagine.

Based in beautiful Catalina, North of Tucson, Arizona, Racken Survey Consultants has established working relationships over the years with builders, architects, and most of the recorders offices throughout Arizona.

Our Work Style

If there’s one thing we pride ourselves on, its our old fashioned approach to work.


We want you to end up with a great real estate development. If that means giving you a 5 minute tip on how to accomplish your goals yourself and we lose out on a small project because of it, we’re OK with that.

Being Thorough

Get it done, get it done right, and get it done right the first time. This simple approach has kept customers coming back to Racken Survey Consultants for over four decades.

No Surprises

Anyone who has dealt with real estate development knows that change orders typically loom towards your anticipated deadline. At Racken Survey Consultants, we prefer to conduct painstakingly thorough research so that these kinds of last minute issues never occur.

Who We Serve

If you’ve got a development, we’ll be there for you. Of course we’ve done projects all over Pima County (including Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley, Catalina, Vail, Green Valley and Sierra Vista), but we love the challenge of working outside of our regional “comfort zone” as well. We’ve provided land surveying services all throughout Arizona, and even as far away as Africa.
