My wife and I recently closed on one of your properties that was listed by Mr. Michael Oswalt. We could not be more pleased with the highly professional manner in which Michael approached every aspect of this transaction. We especially appreciated the assistance that Michael provided since we were relocating to Mississippi from out of state and were not in the local area to attend to many of the necessary details. Michael made the process easy and totally free of complications. Michael ranks as one of the most dedicated and knowledgeable real estate professionals with whom we have ever dealt. When you add to that his highly honest and ethical approach to the representation of his clients, one could not ask for more. Michael is an outstanding representative of your company and is a great asset to your clients.

I have used Michael O. for two multi-million dollar land deals, one buying and one selling. I could not be more pleased with both. He is very passionate and worked extremely hard to get both deals done if ever in the need for any other land deals, he will be the first I call on the first I recommend.

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.


Tom listed our property in Northern Madison County and we closed within 7 weeks, Thanks Tom. Tom made several great suggestions about things we could do to increase the value of the property. He took the lead to get these things done and answering any questions potential buyers had. Closing was very organized and much easier than I dreamed it could be. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom Smith Land and Homes to anyone looking to buy or sell property. Tom 'The Land Man' will get it done and get you the best value possible.

My wife and I recently purchased a home with acreage in Lafayette county. Michael Oswalt with Tom Smith Land & Homes served as the realtor in facilitating the purchase. We found Michael to be knowledgeable, professional and very friendly. We would recommend him highly for anyone interested in purchasing or selling rural property in our area.
