Phoenix Association or REALTORS



On January 14, 2000 HomeSmart Real Estate announced its Grand Opening to the Phoenix marketplace with only two Agents. A reputation for advanced technologies soon followed. As a result, HomeSmart rapidly developed into one of the nations fastest growing Real Estate brokerages. With a commitment to its Agents and Clients, HomeSmart has now grown to over 4,000 agents, with offices throughout Arizona and Southern California.It is the largest real estate brokerage in the Southwest and ranked among the top 10 largest real estate brokerages in the nation.

HomeSmart was founded by its’ President and CEO, Matt Widdows. It has always been privately held by Matt and his wife Colleen, and remains a family business to this day.Much of HomeSmart's success can be attributed to the combined real estate and technology background of its’ founder. In the early 1990's Matt created a technology company that focused primarily on accounts receivable systems for the medical industry. During that time Matt was licensed as a real estate agent and after selling that company in 1994, he focused his efforts full time in the real estate industry.

In early 1999, he recognized the opportunity to bring his technological expertise into real estate and the idea of HomeSmart was born. Matt created a company built around technology that provided Agents with cutting edge tools, a professional meeting and working environment, and efficiencies that would give them more time to focus on their Clients and their business. HomeSmart’s technology has allowed it to provide a consistent high level of customer service to its’ agents and clients, and prides itself on successfully blending technology with a personal touch, something that is often lost.

Today, HomeSmart continues to be a leader in the Real Estate industry by implementing technologies that empower its Agents to provide outstanding customer service to their Clients. HomeSmart agents are professional practitioners that lead their industry and are known for excellence.HomeSmart has now franchised its’ proprietary systems and plans continued growth throughout the United States, with franchises currently in Southern California and Arizona.

Tatum Ranch

Call Roland   (602) 788-0708


Tatum Ranch is a master-planned community of 3,400 homes and five commercial sites in the northeast corner of Phoenix, where North Tatum Boulevard and Cave Creek Road meet. The Ranch is within the Upland Sonoran Desert life zone, with seven washes or arroyos, trending northeast to southwest. It is home to some of the most beautiful native Sonoran Desert vegetation and wildlife in the entire Southwest. Residents enjoy the quiet beauty and serenity of the Desert. Elevation is about 1,800 feet. Because of its distance from the center of the metropolitan area (22 air miles) and its proximity to the New River Mountains to the north, the summer temperatures are usually 5 to 10 degrees cooler than recorded at Sky Harbor, and the night sky is dark.


The small town of Cave Creek, Arizona is just six miles to the north. The Ranch is within the City of Phoenix and the Cave Creek Unified School District. The mailing addresses are in Cave Creek Postal system however. The Ranch is five miles north of the 101 Freeway, and 35 miles north of Phoenix' Sky Harbor airport. The Carefree Highway, the quickest approach to Interstate 17, is 3 miles north.


The Ranch was created and developed by SunCor Development Company beginning in 1988. Homes in 30 neighborhoods were built by a wide range of well known builders. Three neighborhoods are gated. All the lots in Tatum Ranch were built out as of December 2001.


The community benefits from the 410-foot wide Cave Creek Road scenic highway corridor that keeps the roadsides in natural desert plants and shrubs. The arterial streets within the Ranch have desert landscaping in their median strips. Land immediately to the north, east, and south of the Ranch is occupied with residential lots one acre or more. Land to the west of the Ranch is State Trust Land, with a portion dedicated as Sonoran Preserve.


SunCor created the Tatum Ranch Community Association to own, maintain, and insure the common areas, preserve the community's appearance and theme, and establish a sense of community. All Tatum Ranch homeowners are members of the Association.


Inside the Ranch is the new Desert Willows Elementary School (older Ranch students are bussed to Cave Creek schools) and three commercial areas (Safeway, Walgreen's, Ace Hardware, a medical and dental clinic, restaurants, and retail stores). A new Phoenix Fire Station is one mile south of the Ranch. The nearest hospital is the Mayo Clinic Hospital, 6-7 miles south.
