Kim Herron-Singleton - November 23, 2016


I recently relocated to Tucson for a position at Raytheon Missile Systems and Camille was my Realtor. She came highly recommended and I quickly understood why; her knowledge about the area and the company's relocation practices was a Godsend. Camille is a top notch professional who strives to minimize the burden of relocation on families and instead provides a warm welcome to the area and a crash course on the Southern Arizona area. Camille truly listened to our needs, and even identified some new ones that I am forever grateful for. Although we bought our home last May, Camille remains not only a knowledgeable resource for me and her clients, she will always be our 1st friend in Tucson. I would not hesitate to recommend Camille to anyone relocating to the area and looking for a great Realtor.

We just relocated to the Tucson area as this is our 6th move which includes an international move as well. Camille made this relocation very easy. She is well prepared, we had a strategy when consisting homes in a new area. Her guidance was extremely helpful when making our final home decision. We highly recommend Camille for all you real estate needs.

It would be difficult to find a better Realtor in Tucson than Camille! As a long-time resident who is also very active in the community Camille is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market in town.

My husband and I have worked with Camille to both buy a home and sell a home. She lets no detail slip by and is very effective at knowing what brings value to a property. We had 3 offers in 2 days and ended up closing above asking price! Not only is she the consummate professional, I would also consider her a dear friend. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in Tucson!!

If you are looking for an agent that is willing to go to war for you, look no further! We have worked with agents in the past, and Camille has been by far the most responsive and hard working. She is willing to do whatever her clients need in order to find and secure their dream home. We had lots of issues with our sellers when we were purchasing our home, and Camille went above and beyond our expectations. I don't believe she got paid enough for all the work she put in!

Camille is hands down the best realtor I have ever worked with! She handled our relocation to AZ from New England and was very insightful at understanding our needs and wants in an unfamiliar area. She has a great eye for seeing value and issues in various properties and lays all her observations out to weigh. Her negotiation skills on our behalf were fantastic and she is always exceptionally responsive and helpful. All that and an absolute delight to spend time with! I highly recommend Camille!

Camille is one of the most knowledgeable real estate professionals in the Tucson market. We found working with her such a joy. She was there to help us during every step of the process. She emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel very secure during what is without a doubt a very involved process. Camille is a true professional in every sense of the word, and puts her clients’ interests far above her own.

We are very happy to give Camille our highest recommendation for anyone desiring to sell their property or buy one. Her in depth knowledge and the numerous professional and personal contacts in the business, places her in an enviable position from where she can take advantage of opportunities for her clients which other realtors can only dream about. This alone sets her apart from all her fellow realtors in the Tucson market.

Mark Ferguson, SPHR - July 31, 2014


Camille has a reputation at my company as being the "best in the business." It became clear very early on why--she earned it. And she did with me from day one. She has the unusual mix of big picture perspective, creative thinking, and detail orientation that at once gave me confidence that I would find the right house for my family and me. This was especially important to me as one who was relocating from the midwest.

She raises concerns and issues with sellers and other agents as necessary and does so professionally. She has my best interests at every step of the process from paperwork to paint, from location to cost, providing a reality check along the way. She advocated for me with the builders, she was at every walk through and discussion, she reminded me of things I needed to complete and explained complicated and complex real estate laws in ways that were understandable. She remained in constant contact and I could reach her at any time. She was very prompt in returning calls, emails, and text messages.

In addition to her professional touch, Camille is very personable, has a good sense of humor, and has the ability to make me feel like I am her only client--when I know that I am not.

If you desire to work with the consummate real estate professional. I highly recommend Camille. I only wish she was my selling agent as well.

Camille was an amazing real estate agent for the purchase of our dream home in Tucson. I had to relocate to Tucson for a new stressful but exciting position and was extremely busy. She was great at identifying our needs and wants and being creative in identifying homes that matched exactly what we were looking for. She was always available 24 hours a day and prompt at responding at every inquiry. Camille is truly an expert and knows the area extremely well! When it came down to negotiating price, I could not have had a better partner at the table with us! I wholeheartedly recommend Camille for any of your Real Estate needs! Thank you Camille for not only being an amazing agent but also a friend to my family and me!

Recently, I moved from Safford to Tucson and Camille helped me to buy a house at Tucson. I was very impressed by her hard professional work to resolve some challenging issues in the home loan approval process at the bank side. I really appreciate her help to realize my home dream at Tucson and would like to recommend her to any home seller/buyer.

Dan Buster - October 4, 2013


As a prospective first-time home buyer, I needed the help of an agent that had the experience and expertise to single-handedly deal with all the issues, problems, and legal intricacies that arise during a sale. To make my situation even more difficult, the transaction was a short-sale and my lender proved to be less than helpful or concerned.

Luckily, a work colleague had recommended Camille to me. Even at my first meeting with Camille, I knew I had made the right choice for an agent. Camille was very knowledgeable of the real estate market in Tucson, of the potential pitfalls of short-sales, and of the numerous procedures required to make a house sale happen. Most importantly, Camille made a special effort to make sure that I understood the entire series of steps that occur during a sale, from initial contact with the seller to the final closing. Camille frequently contacted me to keep me up-to-date: I always knew what steps in the sale were underway, what steps were approaching, and what I needed to be doing to get my responsibilities completed without any hitches. I can also state that Camille is always on the job; in addition to getting messages from Camille during normal working hours, on several occasions I received emails and text messages during the middle of the night if something important had happened late in the day.

Because my lender didn’t seem concerned to do get their tasks completed even when deadlines were imminent, the whole burden of pushing the sale through fell on Camille. And she proved more than capable. It is unlikely that my house purchase would have happened except for the superb diligence and persistence of Camille. Her expertise and experience got the job done; her up-beat demeanor got me through it with minimal stress; her guidance made me a more knowledgeable home owner. I would recommend Camille without any hesitation to anyone in need of a great real estate agent.

Angelica Weber - October 3, 2013


My first home was sold to me by Camille. Aside from the emotional stressors that come with a first home purchase, I was working out of state during part of the purchase process. Camille was more than accommodating with the challenges of my demanding job and time constraints. I was expecting an arduous process but instead it was very easy and pleasant. I was so pleased with Camille's attention to detail, expertise and professionalism that we purchased a home from her last year. This time there were challenges with selling our existing home as well as a sluggish housing market. Camille was incredibly attentive to detail, knowledgeable and very intuitive when it came to our housing needs. Needless to say, we found our perfect home and were able to successfully sell our existing home in a very challenging market. We would (and do) recommend Camille to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Camille is a trustworthy, personable Realtor who knows how to match the needs of her clients with real estate market. She helped my wife and I find exactly what we were looking for, and she stuck with us even though we took several months before we decided to make our purchase. She knows both the Tucson real estate market but also Oro Valley. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Realtor.

Camille is an amazing real estate agent. She has partnered with us to sell one home and buy two others. She is consistently professional, sensitive to our needs and concerns, and an expert in negotiation. We trusted her to find us a home in a very competitive market and and she delivered. I have worked with other agents in the past- no one compares to Camille. She has always had our best interest at heart. We view her as a true partner in our real estate transactions and an expert advisor. I wouldn't dream of using any other agent. I highly recommend her.

Camille is excellent in carrying out her professional duties as a real estate agent. She not only found us a home when we relocated, she sold our home when time came. But, much more than her superior work ethic and success within her domain, are her personal attributes. Camille really invested in us as people and as a family. The quality time she spent with us during each process really demonstrated her commitment to getting to know our goals, our aspirations, and us personally. Camille functions with the highest integrity and her work is high quality. More importantly, over the last 3 years, Camille has become a close friend to our family. I would call on her for any professional need as well as personal.

Dear Friends

I wholeheartedly recommend Camille Rivas-Rutherford,to be your Real Estate agent.

Camille was such a pleasure to work with! Camille listens and really gets to know you to fully understand what is important in your life and in a home, to help you get what you truly desire. Camille made recommendations and just as importantly, steered me away from areas and properties to assist me in getting the best value in a home.

Camille is a one-stop, get every service you may need, agent. Home and termite inspections, financing and home insurance, Camille is well known, respected and connected. Camille's savvy and great personality made my search and closing seem effortless and stress free because of all her experience and her efforts behind the scenes.

I had such a great experience, I was sad when it was over.

You would be wise and well satisfied to call Camille for your next move!!

Sincerely
Alex Garcia

She was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and patient, explaining every step of the process in a way first-time home buyers could understand.

I highly recommend Camille for anyone who wants to find the right house within their price range.

Let's start with this: I saved Camille's business card for ten years! She made such a solid first impression on me that I knew if I ever wanted to buy a home in Tucson, she would be the one to make it happen. And make it happen, she did! Buying real estate, especially in these times, is a tricky business, and I wanted to work with someone who first and foremost, I trust.

I have only the highest regard for Camille. Her integrity, work ethic, respect for others, knowledge of the business and fantastic sense of humor all instill confidence. Working together, she's personally invested in your well being and you'd never know she had any other clients she is so available and present while working with you.

I hope you are among the lucky ones who have the opportunity to encounter Camille, whether as an agent, a friend or a fellow Tucsonan!

Camille is more than the 'little engine that could'. She's the BIG engine that CAN and WILL get the JOB done!

Marlon Guerrero - December 15, 2009


We give our most heartfelt thanks to Camille Rivas-Rutherford for all of her hard work! Camille is a first-class agent who is passionate about helping her clients find the perfect house! Our home buying experience far exceeded our expectations. This is the second home my husband and I have purchased and our first experience was less-than memorable. Our previous agent just didn't listen to our needs and ignored us half the time. Camille was completely opposite; she was attentive, professional and very knowledgeable on real estate topics. Also, her patience is unparalled, she showed us home after home for months and we never felt pressured to hurry and purchase the wrong home.

I'm certain we have made a lifelong friend in Camille! I have no problem recommending her to our friends/family.

Thanks Camille for all of your hard work...we LOVE our new home!

Kind Regards,

It seems like yesterday when Camille began her career at Pima Medical Institute. From the very start she demonstrated an uncanny ability to understand the needs of others and her ability to "connect" at a heart level made her one of the most successful admissions representatives ever. She was super focused on achieving yet was a really fun person to be around with an infectious laugh. I am not the least bit surprised to learn she is one of the most successful real estate agents in Tucson; only wish she were still with PMI.
