We had the most wonderful experience working with Tammy Pipkin & Robert Hurtado. They were always professional, ten steps ahead in the process to make sure we were protected, everything went smooth for us & it did! You couldn't ask for kinder more educated agents to help in one of the biggest purchases you make. They both went above & beyond. And that goes for even after we were in our home 6 months, Tammy still checks on us from time to time & recently helped us get an unexpected, expensive home repair taken care of that otherwise we wouldn't have known was covered & didn't cost us any out of pocket money. I cant recommend them highly enough!

WHAT A PLEASURE it was being represented by TAMMY PIPKIN in a recent (very) rural property purchase! We first met Tammy about 5 years ago and had attempted two prior home purchases through her but in both cases were out-bid (our fault, not hers).
Given this history, we feared that Tammy might not be eager to work with us especially two out-of-staters who were interested in an inexpensive and off-the beaten path property. Those factors alone would give most realtors pause and/or cause them to turn back. Nonetheless, Tammy was undaunted, pushed full steam ahead, and GOT us the property we desired! Her tireless effort prevailed despite the property’s very remote nature and assorted unforeseen challenges encoutered along the way (e.g., the requirement to obtain easements from the U.S. Forest Service and other private landowners, etc.). Try finding a lender who is willing to underwrite a mortgage on a property lacking formal legal access? Tammy accomplished that for us too! Tammy went the extra mile (both literally and figuratively) for us. Tammy Pipkin is a tremendously hard-working individual. She responded promptly to call after call, text after text, and email after email through a nearly 4 month long purchase process. If any upstart beverage company wants to market a new energy drink, we suggest they name it: “TAMMY!” We continue to wonder when she sleeps? She responded to each and every impediment along the way with optimism and a prevailing attitude. Tammy made sure no stone was left unturned with respect to the particulars of documentation and property repairs. At times when it looked like the challenges of this property purchase were becoming insurmountable, Tammy courageously pushed ahead. This realtor KNOWS HER STUFF and was not afraid to admit when she was venturing into the unfamiliar. She did all the ground work required to make sure we were protected at all times and in all respects. Tammy accomplished all of the above coupled with a very enjoyable sense of humor (which at times came in VERY handy given assorted setbacks encountered along the way). We simply could not ask for a better professional or person to guide us through the maze. This is our 9th home purchase since the mid-1980s and NO OTHER REALTOR HAS PERFORMED like Tammy Pipkin. Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!

I am delighted with the service provided by Tammy Pipkin of HomeSmart Fines Homes & Land. Your personal professional service from start to finish has been exemplary. As a retired Real Estate Broker my expectations were high and Tammy far exceeded those expectations. Tammy is trustworthy, honest and a pleasure to deal with. Her knowledge of the market and key contacts in the Community helped make this process enjoyable. In this tough Real Estate Market to list my property and close escrow in less than 45 days with a full price offer is remarkable.
Thank you Tammy – long may you continue to set excellent standards for others to follow!
I just want to thank you for all the hard work and dedication you put into helping me buy my house. You made the potentially scary buying process seem familiar and exciting! I could always count on you to answer my questions and felt comfortable in trusting that your experience and expertise would lead me to make a confident decision. I really felt that you were advocating for me…..encouraging me to get inspections, went to the City to request information about the property, etc. I never felt like you were trying to “sell me a house”. I felt that you were a friend that was there to help me make the right decisions based on my needs and wants!!! Anyone would be lucky to have you as their realtor and I would HIGHLY recommend you to anyone interested in buying a property!!! If ever I am interested in purchasing a home in the future, you are the first person I will be calling!!
Our heartfelt gratitude seems so inadequate for all you have done in our behalf.
So many times you put our needs ahead of your own and at all hours of the day. From the very start, your up-to-the-moment updates on our status confirmed we had an agent who really cared.
Tammy, you present yourself as no other professional we have met, talked to or even heard of … bringing complete knowledge of your industry and trends; reassuring resolute confidence in our home search; absolute courtesy, honesty and integrity at every step of the process.
AND most uncommon; you are vibrant, happy, with a love-of-life personality that shines.
A new chapter in our life is beginning and you opened that door to our new home and into our hearts! You are a member of our family now.
We wish others searching for homes to change their lives to share our experience … and the same love you have given us!

I have worked with Tammy as a buyers agent and sellers agent over the last 10+ years. During this time she has performed above and beyond any other agent I have worked with over the years. I have worked with agents in several different states. Regardless of stress levels she is a highly effective communicator, negotiator and able to do both with an enjoyable personality. Words could never describe what an incredible person and broker she is.
First met Tammy Pipkin about 11 years back when it was impossible to get your paws on a piece of land unless you saw it first and made a offer that same day. Well I did find the perfect lot one street across from my mother and had to have it. Called Tammy right away, told her what I was willing to pay and now sits my dream home I was able to build.
In August of 2013 my mother passed and left her home to my sister and I. We were able to help out a family member for a few years letting him stay at the house but it then became time to sell. I had always kept Tammy,s number in my phone knowing if I had ever needed a realtor she would be the one to call. This time Tammy was teamed up with Robert Hurtado and together they made the sale of our house a pleasant experience. We had a couple issues like showing documentation that the house was not sitting on a flood plain due the the rear of the land touching it and flyers were disappearing from the box over night. Robert was able to provide documentation on the flood plain in a fraction of the time than expected and Tammy was always swinging by to make sure the flyers were stocked. Also when selling a house sometimes potential buyers can come up with some unreasonable request but Tammy was always on top of things and keeping me well informed on what was fair to be asked of me being the seller and what was just that a ridiculous request. Tammy and Robert will always remain my go to team whenever dealing with real estate and I would and will recommend them to anyone. Thanks again Tammy for making something I thought would be so difficult such a painless process. You Rock!
Your efforts and professionalism as a real estate agent are appreciated by the Reinhardts. You always had the answers and always were prepared to go the extra mile. Our experience with you was one we will remember and will have no hesitation in referring Tammy Pipkin. The “real estate arena” could certainly use more people like you.

In August of 2015, we traveled to Arizona to search for an area for relocation. Tammy Pipkin was recommended and we made an appointment with her to show us what the Prescott area had to offer. She blocked out the entire day and spent over 8 hours showing us homes in the tri-city area. Since we were relocating from Illinois, she had no idea if she would ever see us again. Our thought was, if she was willing to spend all day with a potential client, imagine what she would do for an actual client.
We kept in contact with Tammy and kept her posted on the home sale side in Illinois. In May of 2016, I came to Prescott to search for a home. Tammy again blocked out an entire day for me. We drove to many homes and if we happened to drive by one that looked to be in my price range, she would contact Robert and he would set up the appointment for us so she did not have to stop driving and lose precious time (since I was only here for a couple of days). After a long day of looking at homes, I decided on having a track home built. I was very nervous because I knew I would be in Illinois for the beginning stages of construction. When I was signing my documents, I relied on Tammy to tell me about certain documents that were different in Arizona than the docs in Illinois. She held my hand thru the entire process. Tammy was my eyes and ears during the beginning stages of the build; she talked to the contractors and took photographs of my home as it was being built.
Once I arrived in Arizona in September, she didn’t stop being informed on my homes progress. She jointly attended the pre-drywall inspection and the home inspection (which she recommended I hire). She was also present for the walk-thrus. She asked questions I may not have thought about asking, took notes for me, guided me thru the entire home buying process. Home buying is stressful but Tammy and Robert took a lot of the stress away from me.
Tammy and Robert’s level of service does not end when the final papers are signed. They have been there for any questions I may have about the area such as where do you go to get a drivers license, is there a dog park, where can you get a full service car wash. This team has made the transition from the Chicago area to the Prescott area a positive experience.
Thank you Tammy and Robert!
Used Tammy and Robert to purchase a home here in the Prescott area for my father from Northern California. They are very hard working professionals who found the perfect home in the right price range for my father. He is in his new house and loves it more and more each day! I would highly recommend using Tammy and Robert if you are looking to purchase a house!
If you are looking to purchase or sell your home, my wife and I highly recommend the dynamic team of Tammy Pipkin and Robert Hurtado. We were extremely happy with their personal and professional work to help us sell 2 homes. Our first listing with them was to sell a home we had rehabbed, and the second listing was for our personal home.
Their attention to detail was key for us to sell both listings quickly. Tammy and Robert brought on a professional photographer who provided some incredible photos and video, set to music no less. They kept us informed along the way for both our listings.
Give Tammy and Robert a call and you’ll quickly see how friendly and professional they are. You will likely be adding a testimonial here also, after you realize how hard they will work for you, whether you are looking to buy your next home, or sell your current one.
Tammy and Robert worked hard for us, and they will work hard for you, and they have earned & deserve to be considered for your real estate needs. Great team…..
Chuck & Sherry Horton
We can not say enough great thinks about this Dynamic duo , they seemed to know more about what I wanted and need than we did. They are so informed and worked so hard as our buying agents. The house we purchased will be our forever home, and we love it. We will be forever grateful that we had Tammy and Robert representing us. They go above and beyond. In our case even the sellers (who were not represented by Tammy and Robert) commented on the outstanding job they did for us as buyers. I would recommend them as the only agents you should consider.
Albert & Kimberly Creach
Robert was just the agent I needed for the quick sale of my home! He went above and beyond my expectations every step of the way. I sincerely appreciated his attention to detail, his trustworthiness, and candor throughout the process. He is a true real estate professional and I would highly recommend him to others!
Tammy, we cannot thank you enough for all of your help! You got us a nice house to move into, the first day it went on the market. And…..you sold the house we are moving from. I did not think we could sell our house because it is only 5 months old and we were competing with new builds, but, TAMMY DID IT!!! Never doubt the power of “TAMMY’!!! THANK YOU OVER AND OVER…..
Pam Bethel & Rick Harang

He made sure we knew everything that was going to happen at all times. He is so caring and made sure we were happy with everything through the entire process. We cannot thank him enough for all his hard work. He will make sure you find the perfect house for your needs. Robert we will recommend you to everyone we know you are truly an amazing realtor and an even more amazing person.
Shannon & Rich Kelley
Thank you so much for helping us find our first house! I couldn’t imagine ever having felt this at home in any other place I’ve lived. We really appreciate the care you took in helping us to find our perfect home. I have highly recommended you to all of my friends and family! I tell them “If you want someone who can be flexible with your work schedule and make house hunting fun, call Tammy!”
We had a horrible experience trying to find a house with another realtor and we thought “All realtors have no souls…” but you proved us wrong! Thank you again for all your help!
