“I recently purchased some land that was brokered by Michael Oswalt. I enjoyed working with Michael. He was pleasant, honest, fair and above board on all his dealings. He did everything that he said he would and did it in a timely fashion. It does not matter if you are buying or selling, if these are the qualities you desire in a land broker, I would highly recommend Michael Oswalt.” J. Walker

I was referred to Tony Bahou as someone who would be helpful in my relocation from out of state. When I first met Tony, I had not even decided on my new home city -- or job. Tony showed me homes anyway and never pressured me. Over the next two months, he checked in with me to see where I was in my moving process. When I decided on Jackson, Tony was ready to help me narrow my house choices. I can say he always kept my interests and preferences at the forefront of our search and advised me about properties, their future potential value, and their current fair value. He negotiated for me on the property I purchased and stood with me throughout the process until closing. He is beyond excellent as a realtor and is now a valued friend. Honest, sincere, caring, highly knowledgeable, and dedicated - these words best describe Tony Bahou

Bo Burkes is the most land-knowledgeable and responsive property realtor we've ever worked with. We were casually looking for a mini-farm, when we found our dream 100-acres. Realizing that time was of the essence on this desirable Starkville parcel, we contacted the seller's agent - Bo Burkes. We were reluctant because we hadn't engaged a realtor to work with us. But from the first time of we talked to Bo, we could tell he had our backs. He explained how a dual-agency agreement works, and we felt Bo was a fair representative for us and for the sellers through the whole process. More importantly, Bo was thorough in explaining every detail of the property from easements to drainage to surveys, helping us to make a well-informed decision. He helped us zero in on a fair offer that had a likelihood of being well received by the sellers. We got the property! And, it was a low-stress transaction because of Bo's competence and timeliness on every shred of paperwork. Tom Smith has a superstar on his Starkville team with Bo Burkes. Buyers nor sellers could find a more energetic or proactive agent. Great experience.


It has been an honor and pleasure to be LeighAnn Pittman's first customer and jumpstarting her real estate career! We would like to thank her for all the help every step of the way. She was always there even after office hours to answer texts and phone calls about every little concern we had. LeighAnn made sure everything was going in the right direction and we met our closing deadline with everything in place. LeighAnn is the bomb! And so is Tom Smith Land and Homes!

I recently hired Steve Martens to sell property I owned in Madison County. Mr Martens was very knowledgeable and advised me every step of the way. He marketed my property in ways that I could not have done. He kept me well informed along the way with honest straight forward information and feedback. I was very pleased with the end results. I would highly recommend Mr Martens for any real estate needs that you may have.
