as a first time homebuyer, i'm grateful tam diligently guided me through the dizzying processes with care and patience. she was accessible, prompt, and always positive. and more importantly, she prioritized my core values in equity and community - honoring my wishes to work with those historically under-represented in this industry. i appreciate you, tam!
Tam recently helped us purchase our first home. She is amazing! She guided us through the process with such knowledge, grace and patience. She was always available to answer questions and address concerns- no matter how small. We are so grateful she was part of our first home-buying experience and would work with her again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Tam!
I was a first time home buyer and Tam made the process so easy! She took a lot of time to explain things and help me navigate. She has so many contacts that are also great to deal with and even after the home is bought and signed for, she was there to help me with some repairs and all of my questions!
Tam was amazing from the very beginning. We moved here from out of state and she was so helpful and such a pivotal part of our entire move. First and foremost, she was very prompt In either answering her phone or getting back to us quickly with our numerous questions. She is friendly, yet professional and informative. She not only helped in finding "our home" in a very short period of time, but was instrumental in getting the inspections arranged and worked through; hence, our closing and move went smoothly! We will definitely call on her again if needed.

I can say enough about Tam and her professionalism, diligence, always being responsive and never missing a beat during my home buying process. Thanks to Tam, my home buying experience was impeccable. Every step of the way, Tam was there to guide me, explaining everything clearly and precisely.

I would highly recommend Tam. Home buying is such a big step. Every concern, every question, anything I needed, Tam was there. You will not have a better experience or home buying representative than Tam. She goes above and beyond any expectation. I can’t thank her enough.
Technical Program Manager
Tam was a perfect partner to have during my home-selling and home purchasing process. Thanks to her recommendations my home went for top dollar and I was able to get a perfect fit house for me in my dream location (sans bidding war). Ive been through the process with another realtor. But this time around went with Tam because she came highly recommended. I believe shes the reason my closing went by so quickly and so smoothly. She kept me appraised at every step. I was able to work full time, barely bothered by any of the typical home buying/stress because it was all handled and handled so well. She walked me through every step of the process and was happy to explain further when i needed more guidance. Before writing this Ive already recommended her to anyone I know starting this process. Its a good time to buy but not all realtors are equal and shes a gem.

Our home purchase was a definitely an interesting journey and we couldn't have done it without Tam. Throughout this process, she was extremely kind, insightful and patient to our needs. Coming from Los Angeles we never thought owning a home would be possible without sacrificing an arm and a leg. But through her guidance and empathy to our situation, Tam helped shape new opportunities that we never thought were possible. For this, I am forever grateful and appreciative to her.
I will recommend anyone who is looking for a real estate agent to speak with Tam first! When I started my home buying process, I was very overwhelmed. She made sure I understood each process and was willing to help at any point if I had any questions. She definitely went above and beyond when helping me find my home. Her openness and communication was refreshing whenever I needed an answer or assistance during the process.
Manager at SubPlans
I can't say enough about how wonderful Tam Hixson is. We met her through a friend of a friend, and immediately knew that we wanted her to be our real estate agent. We had met with several others, but immediately appreciated her calm, honest, and clear approach. We didn't know if we were financially ready to buy a home, and Tam worked with us every step of the way and guided us through the process. We found our dream home and moved in December 1st. I really don't think that timeline would have been possible if we hadn't met Tam. If you're looking for a real estate agent with heart and dedication, consider meeting Tam. I think you'll immediately realize she's the right person for you, just as we did.
We have nothing but positives to say about our work with Tam. From the onset she was patient, professional, and knowledgeable. She helped us navigate the complex world of selling houses with ease and understanding. She walked us through the process step by step communicating directly with us every step of the way. I’ve truly enjoyed working with Tam and felt our time together was more of a partnership and friendship than a business interaction and money making deal. She valued us as individuals and took the time to understand our goals before jumping right into selling our house. I’d work with her again had we not moved across state lines and recommend her hands down.
Loan Originator
Tam is one of the best realtors I have ever worked with. She is very knowledgeable, returns calls fast, has a real heart to serve others and takes great care of my clients. I would recommend Tam to all of my friends and family.
Tam did an excellent job going above and beyond our expectations! She worked hard to find us a house that had all the important things on our must have list. Tam was a great advocate for us and we couldn’t have asked for a better agent!
Michael Fultz
I would recommend Tam for anyone buying a home in the PNW. She is adaptable, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.
Resident of Palisades neighborhood
What I am impressed with the most is Tam's commitment to her values of community, giving back and relationship based service. She leads with her values and selected a firm that supports them in their business approach. Her teaching background shows in how she relates to her clients and meets them where they are in a service -- selling and buying a home -- only needed a few times in the average lifetime. Her knowledge of and commitment to Lake Oswego and families who live here is a real plus. Recommendation: Meet with and take the time to get to know Tam Hixson when planning to make a change in your residence.
Managing Principal Broker
I have worked with Tam since her entry into Real Estate. From both the perspective of being her Managing Broker and a peer - I could not be prouder of her. Tam repeatedly demonstrates her commitment to her clients, but equally as important to me and in conjunction with our companies commitment to the communities we serve - Tam's spirit of engagement, cooperation and commitment to helping build diverse communities is unparalleled. Tam represents not only our branch and our company - but the entire real estate industry extremely well.
Mortgage Loan Officer
I have worked with Tam on a few professional transactions with mutual clients. I ALWAYS feel confident that Tam will take great care of my clients. Tam delivers great service of course, but what I appreciate most is how knowledgeable and detail oriented she is. We have been in some situations where things got complicated and Tam navigated through it like the ROCK STAR that she is. Tam’s background in education helps her really listen and understand clients to make sure they really get what they need.
We love Tam!
Tam is working with us in our second attempt to buy our first home. Because we are new and really don’t know much about the process, it’s important to us to be working with someone patient, knowledgeable and above all, TRUSTWORTHY. Tam is all this and more! I feel so lucky to have her in our corner.
Tam is a skilled professional who was a real pleasure to work with. Tam is able to navigate the combative and fast moving market with a surgical precision. Tam was able to secure the first look, and first offer opportunities that are necessary in the competitiveness of the market. Tam continued to support us with every step of the process. I would recommend her to anyone who wants the support of a buyers agent. We have been in our home for a couple of months now, and we couldn't be happier with the entire experience.
Single momma
I cannot describe how awesome Tam was. She helped me with the buying process every step of the way. I felt incredibly cared for, and listened to. She knew exactly what I was looking for in a home, and helped me talk through big decisions. During the inspection process, she helped me make phone calls and provided many recommendations. I hope not to move again soon, but if I do, Tam will be my girl!
Priest Cabinets, Inc - Owners
We have been beyond satisfied working with Tam on our first home purchase. We originally met a year ago but came to realize we weren't quite ready to buy. Tam remained in contact, checking in, and sending market trends for the areas were were interested in. When we were ready to buy she patiently answered our questions and really made sure we weren't overwhelmed. She worked closely with our leaner and helped keep our timelines and documents on schedule. Tam made herself available to us at all hours during the week and weekends. She made our first time buying so easy and smooth that we were surprised by the process. Yes, its a lot of paperwork, anticipation and unknowns, but Tam made sure to call, text, email, and physically meet with us so we understood what was happening. She really took control of the complicated matters and left the excitement to us!
Even after we closed and are living in our home, Tam continues to make herself available to us. She really does care about her clients buyers satisfaction, happyness, and overall wellbeing. We will be recommending Tam to our friends and family when they are ready to buy!
From our first meeting with Tam, I could tell that she was going to help us find the perfect home. She helped us get clear on what we were looking for and provided expert guidance to help us find it. She was patient, enthusiastic, and professional throughout the process. She included our six year old daughter in everything from the initial conversation about houses to the final signing process. When I gave birth two weeks before the closing date, Tam arranged for us to sign papers with a notary at our kitchen table. She even checked out our new house to be sure it was winter-safe during a snowstorm and shoveled our walkway because she knew we were distracted by our new baby. She helped us buy the perfect home for our family: a big backyard where the kids and the dog can play, enough space for a guest room and a home office, and located within walking distance to our older daughter's school. I hope we won't have to buy a new house any time soon, but if we did, I would definitely work with Tam again. She was a calm, reassuring presence during a very busy and anxiety-ridden time. I recommend her to everyone who even casually mentions wanting to buy or sell a house.
Mortgage Lender
I've had the pleasure of partnering with Tam on several real estate purchase transactions. Tam is so wonderful and easy to work with. She is kind, patient and professional. I highly recommend her services, whether you are a possible client or a potential business partner. You are in great care with Tam!! She and I met through a nonprofit volunteer organization and have only had positive experiences together since.
Last year, Tam helped our family find our very first home and we could not have asked for a better realtor. From finding us an amazing mortgage broker, to viewing countless homes, to thoroughly walking us through loan documents and to answering all of our first-time home-buyer questions - she truly helped us every step of the way. Buying your first home can be stressful, especially in a market like Portland, and to have someone like Tam by your side as you make one of the most important purchases in your life is invaluable.
Sales Executive
Tam's expertise and likeability makes her someone you want in your corner. She is extremely passionate about her Real Estate practice and is one of the most organized agents I've had a privilege to work with. If you are looking for someone who can listen to your needs, communicate effectively and take the pressure off your shoulders during the home buying/selling process than look no further than Tam!
Project Manager
When my parents made the life changing decision to move from their home in Central Oregon to be closer to family in Portland, we knew that we needed someone that would be thoughtful, patient and thorough. We feel so grateful that when we chose Tam to be their realtor, we received so much more. In a very short time, Tam was able connect with our parents in a way that made them comfortable through a process that can be emotional and overwhelming. She thoughtfully and respectfully guided them through each step with ease. We highly recommend Tam to anyone that is looking for a partner through the home buying/selling journey.
