Our experience with Camille Rivas-Rutherford was fantastic! We were new homeowners and she walked us through the process and made it so easy! She answered every single one of my phone calls regardless of what time it was. She answered all of our questions and made us feel very valued. I will always use Camille and refer her to everyone I know whomay have realtor needs. She is one in a million!

Camille was referred to us through Coldwell Banker as a relocation specialist. She exceeded our expectations for this role. She is also extremely knowledgeable about the Tucson area and the changing landscape in the real estate market. From finding a house to closing, she was a fantastic resource for our relocation.

I have known Camille for several years now and have looked to her for guidance in all things related to real estate. She is extremely knowledgeable, hardworking and passionate about her clients goals and needs. Our community has found that her positive energy and attitude is a key ingredient, when it comes to cooking up a residential transaction. She will be there with you, every step of the way!

Tonny Tang – May 5th, 2021

I was a little apprehensive finding a realtor to sell my house because of the sheer number available. I contacted Camille after being referred to her by a friend. I called her on a Friday evening expecting to leave a voicemail for her to listen to on Monday. But she picked up the phone, and she jumped in and helped me with the steps needed to get my house ready for sale. Because of her experience and understanding of the current state of the housing market, she was able to help me get my house listed in 3 weeks, and I was picking an offer only 3 days later! These results could not have been achieved without her hard work marketing my house, hosting multiple open houses in-person and virtually, and navigating me through all the various paperwork and processes. She made herself available regardless of the day of the week or the time day, and she had constant communication with me. Camille helped me change a situation I was expecting to be long and tedious to one that was relatively easy and smooth. I will definitely be referring her to my family and friends looking to sell or buy a home.

Haishuo Zhang - March 30th, 2021

Had the fortune of having Camille as my realtor when buying my first home in Tucson during a HOT HOT market! She was very caring and attentive throughout the process but was also able to apply pressure where needed (ex. with seller negotiations). She wasn't afraid to fight for her clients and rightly so since she is backed up by a great team that is dedicated to work hard and fast for Camille and her clients. On top of that, Camille has a wonderful personality and I appreciated many of the small moments/memories throughout the journey that put a personal touch on the experience Lastly, as a first-time home buyer, I learned a ton from Camille! It wasn't just about the buying process but everything from fire escapes to interior decoration.

Mathew Sasaki - March 2nd 2021

In March of 2021 I was looking to relocate to Tucson and purchase a house. As a first-time homebuyer I was unfamiliar with the state of the marketplace when looking to purchase a home. As such, I was not having much success when looking to purchase a home. Camille was recommended to me by a close family member who works in real estate industry, and he said she is truly a top agent and knows Tucson even better than the back of her own hands. Camille not only met all my expectations but also greatly exceeded them. From strategies of trying to purchase the house to the vendors to assist with inspecting and repairing the house, everything Camille recommended has proven to be fantastic. To summarize: if I were doing this process again, the only thing I would have done differently would be Camille at the very beginning. Whenever I look again at purchasing a house in the future she will be the first person I contact, and I am proud to recommend Camille as your agent to purchase a home.

Camille was tremendous guide through our home finding and buying process. We have bought and sold many homes but never worked with someone as knowledgeable, thoughtful and organized as her. She made our move across the country much easier. Camille listened to what we were looking for and continued to show us properties with those must haves until we found our home.

Camille was an absolutely wonderful agent to work with from first phone call through closing! As a first-time homebuyer I felt well taken care of throughout the process. Camille went out of her way to make sure I understood the ins and outs of contract negotiations as well as the many details that need to be addressed once the keys were handed over. Camille always made herself available to chat and proved to be a wonderful friend even when the contract closed. I now live in my first home, which is my dream home, and I feel like my life has changed for the better. I am infinitely grateful to Camille and thankful for her support throughout this process. I would highly recommend Camille to anyone looking for their dream home in Tucson!

Echo Gilliam – September 10, 2020

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Camille. I was moving to Tucson from Virginia and because of the hot seller’s market, I was unable to travel to Tucson in time to see any house that interested me before another buyer scooped it up. when I found the one, I bought, I contacted Camille immediately and she dropped everything, got in a car, and drove to the house to meet the seller’s realtor right away. I depended on her evaluation and opinion of the property and based upon that; I made the decision to make an offer. Camille expedited the process every step of the way and by the time I made it to Tucson to see the house for the first time, I fell in love with immediately. She responded to my every text and phone call and made me feel like I was her only client. On top of that, she found my dream home for me and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you, Camille!

Camille Rivas-Rutherford was AMAZING in every aspect. We were first time homebuyers and new to the process of purchasing a home, so we were a little nervous, but Camille made the whole transaction a breeze! She was on top of everything, responded immediately, and answered all of our questions. She had so much patience with us and really made us feel cared for. I work for a mortgage company and I have met many agents, NOT like Camille. She literally went above and beyond for us. I have found my forever agent; I will always use Camille for any real estate transaction that I may need. And I will refer everyone I know to her. Simply put, she is the absolute BEST, and we are so grateful!

Robert Hunter – July 26th, 2020

From the moment we met Camille, she was sincere, genuine, and motivated to help us find exactly what we were looking for. She helped us narrow down our preferences with her specialized listing portal. She also offered her opinions and instincts regarding homes that we were interested in, in order to broaden our knowledge as we were evaluating prospective homes. When we selected homes to visit, she quickly and efficiently coordinated visits and gathered all necessary information. When we came to the decision to make an offer on a home, she guided us through and facilitated the entire process all the way to the closing date. She was available for any questions, at any time day and night, via phone, text, or email. she treated us and took of is and guided us as if we were her own son and daughter or a close friend. Actually, through the process of buying our home we now consider Camille a great friend!

Camille provided us outstanding client customer service. From day one of our initial meeting through closing, Camille provided continuous communication, well -informed recommendations and thorough assistance in developing and executing a well-defined marketing strategy. We think the house was priced right, make to superbly and “sold” in twenty-four hours beyond our wildest imagination. We would use Camille to buy a home, sell a home and recommend the same to any buyer/ seller. Camille is the best!

Arthur Mabbett – May 12th, 2020

Camille recently helped my wife and I sell our home in Tucson as we had a career opportunity which required a relocation. When we originally bought I Tucson, Camille was our realtor and over the years we became great friends and although it was sad to leave, she did a top-notch job getting our place sold as expected! Timing was incredibly challenging as we just entered the “stay-at-home” guidelines due to COVID-19. Nothing was easy but Camille was creative and persistent, and we got the home sold in less than three weeks! she walked us through the process every step of the way and made fantastic use of social media as well as her deep contacts to get visibility on the home. Great job as expected Camille! Thank you!

My home buying was somewhat different than most. I had to sell my home and purchase another in a very short period. I had title issues, pipping issues and I am a bit of a procrastinator. Camille was the realtor I needed. In a very short time she got my home in picture perfect condition, helped with the title and piping issues.
If you are looking for a realtor who is friendly, aggressive  on your behalf and gets things done in a timely manner Camille is who you want.

Nick & Misty Holmes - December 16th, 2019

Camille invested time to really get to know our family. She learned the activities our two daughters really enjoyed, listened to our family hobbies, and spent a great deal teaching us about the various schools as well as the culture  Tucson has to offer. Camille is so much more than an amazing realtor, she is a great human. Our unique family situation required some extra investigation into inclusive school/community options for our youngest child with disabilities. Camille helped us find exactly what we were dreaming of and she worked to ensure our dream home purchase was seamless. We love Camille and consider her a friend for life. So thankful for Camille's expertise.

Dearest Camille,
You're a pit-bull ... which is a good thing... You stepped up & never let me give up even when I wanted to. I just had to close my eyes, let go & trust your passion, years of experience and ability to multitask around the clock. You represent and support veterans, mothers and women, in a role model and strong driven way & it was a pleasure to work with you.
You also didn't give up on a "bad situation" after my home closed... And I know you had no obligation to help me & was done out of a new found friend. I fully recommend ALL veterans & women call Camille & no other!

The whole experience was so unusual. On a Wednesday our home in New Hampshire closed, and on that Friday Camille was in our prospective new home negotiating an offer. It was fun to watch the process and be guided through it. We love our new home and Camille made it happen.
Camille is a special person and it was pure good fortune we met and worked with her.

Julie Leeman – November 6th, 2018

I am writing to express our pleasure with real estate agent Camille Rivas-Rutherford, who represented us in our purchase of a home in Tucson, AZ. This was our fourth corporate relocation and Camille is by far the best agent we have ever had the pleasure of working with. She was very receptive to our wants and needs during the search process and made herself quickly available for showings when potential properties were listed. From the time we decided on our future home and submitted an offer, Camille expertly guided us through the negotiation process, many professional inspections, as well as oversight of repairs prior to closing. Her extensive knowledge of the Tucson market and long list of local contractors made our purchase smooth and stress-free. We were able to close quickly and move in what I consider record speed. Thank you Camille for all of your hard work!

Larry Nork – January 5th, 2018

Three words come to mind when I think of Camille, caring, knowledgeable and PROFESSIONAL! Our house buying process was unique in that I was on the East Coast and Camille and my husband were in Arizona. Camille kept me “in the loop” and made me feel that I was very much part of the process. Being so far away made ir a bit more stressful for me, but Camille made it as easy as she possible could! Once the home was “found” she made the negotiation process painless. What sums up the entire process was my reaction upon seeing our new home for the first time – I burst into tears of joy. A true feeling of relief pence, I had never been to Arizona before I had only seen the house online. Thank you, Camille, for being such a wonderful realtor and for being a friend!

I met Camille during my hiring event here in Tucson before relocation to Tucson via San Jose. When me and my wife were ready to purchase a home, I contacted Camille almost a year later and she was quick to start helping us right away. We extremely nervous since we were first time buyers, but Camille made it a wonderful and less stressful experience. She was extremely helpful with each step of the process and we closed on out home within 30 days with zero hiccups along the way. I will be recommending her to my colleagues and friends/family in the area when they are ready to purchase.

Camille was such a delight to work with! She was professional, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and took the time to ensure we had a full understanding of the new home buying process. She recommended an upfront home inspection, which more than paid for itself, and helped to not only negotiate a fair price, but free window treatments as well… a real blessing. If you’re looking for a realtor who listens, is communicative, who knows the market, but more importantly, the area, we highjly recommend Camille as your choice!

Courtney & Karl Geiger – May 25th, 2017

What I appreciated most about Camille during the home buying process was the professional value she provided to us. Anyone can find a home they like on Zillow, but Camille provided the kind of insight into each home and neighborhood we looked at the buyers (especially those new to Tucson) cannot and will not find on the internet. She was able to provide her opinion on the quality and safety of the neighborhood, and whether the area was and will continue to be a desirable place to live. She also helped us understand where the houses we liked were priced fairly given current market conditions, the types of renovations we may want to do in the future, and our personal circumstances. Many real estate agents refuse to answer those questions because they don’t want to jeopardize a sale. I found Camille’s honesty refreshing and we trusted her judgment given her extensive knowledge and experience in Tucson real estate. I recommend Camille and would use her as my real estate agent again.

Sandy Villard – May 12th, 2017

Camille is great! Given the high level of expertise she exudes and the knowledge of the surrounding area, she is probably very busy and in high demand, but you don’t realize it. When looking at houses, you are the only customers she has. She doesn’t field phone calls and if she does make a call, it is to set appointments for the houses you want to see. Her level of customer service is the thing that sets her apart from other realtors.

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 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.

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.

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!

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.

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 is very knowledgeable about current market conditions and was a reliable consultant when it came time to review all the paperwork that goes along with buying a home. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Realtor.

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!!

My wife and I worked with Camille when purchasing our first home. She was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and patient, explaining every step of the process in a way first-time home buyers could understand. She knew exactly what we were looking for, worked with us to find the right place, and guided us through the purchase process. I highly recommend Camille for anyone who wants to find the right house within their price range.

Steve-Anna Stephens - December 2, 2010

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!

I have worked with Camille on purchasing two homes and selling one. On each, she was professional and knowledgeable about the market and the locale. Camille actively listened to our wants and needs on each transaction and was able to maximize our budget by delivering the perfect balance on each and every home closing.

David Lundstrom - September 20, 2010

Camille is more than the 'little engine that could'. She's the BIG engine that CAN and WILL get the JOB done! Camille still looks like she's 30 but I've known her for close to 48 years now and can tell you that her honesty, professionalism and drive for excellence are matched by no other person that I know.

As President of the Crawford St. Historic District Association, as Vice- President of the Pimeria Alta Historic Society, as a Commissioner of the Cultural Heritage Commission appointed by the Mayor of Nogales, as former Vice-President of the Santa Cruz County Search and Rescue, former chairman of the Border Shoot-Out/ United Way and former member of the Tomato Board and the Table Grape Boards of the Association of the Americas I personally recommend Camille on a professional and personal level. Her enthusiasm and charm are bonuses that comes when you meet her.

I easily stake my reputation on Camille Rivas Rutherford. As my kids would say, "She's the bomb."

Cordially yours,

Camille did a great job for us in a relocation to Tucson. Her knowledge of the market is outstanding. Camille took the time to understand our needs which was a tremendous help in identifying properties for our consideration. Highly professional and detail oriented. Since we were moving from out of state, her willingness to help handle local details for us prior to arrival was critical to trouble free move. Thank You Camille.

What an honor and pleasure it is to write a recommendation for Camille. I have never met a more professional Realtor than Camille. Honesty and integrity are the foundation of every transaction she is involved in. She puts her clients interests above all else and is respected throughout our industry by her peers. It is rare to see an individual who possesses so many qualities that are vital to being a top Real Estate Professional.

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,

Camille is the best realtor that my wife and I could have asked for! Her hard work, awesome personality, and desire to help us made "house hunting" enjoyable and stress-free. Camille was thorough, detail-oriented and extremely knowledgeable. She was also a great negotiator. We had a great time working with Camille and ended up with the perfect home!

Admissions Director - Pima Medical Institute/Tucson

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.

If you’re looking for an agent, there’s no one better in Tucson to work with!!
