Robert H. Hamrick

Robert H. Hamrick

Chairman, CEO

When Las Vegas’ Coldwell Banker Premier Realty Chairman Bob Hamrick learns that another of his sales associates has achieved a national ranking, he is quick with the praise and celebration, but he is not the least bit surprised. After all, his modestly sized company of about 250 associates and only 3 offices has an exceptional reputation. In production, it ranks #17 among the nearly 900 Coldwell Banker companies.

Bob was only 17 when he began pursuing his real estate career and within two years he was helping to grow a 50 person office to 100 sales associates while maintaining multi-million dollar personal sales. He repeated his leadership accomplishments at another office in 1988. Coldwell Banker Premier Realty hired Bob as Managing Broker of its Rainbow Office in February 1995, which soon was recognized as the “most improved office” for the entire Western Region (over 500 offices). His office received the same award again in 1997 and Bob was awarded Managing Broker of the Year in 1996 and 1997. In March 1998, Bob and Molly Hamrick acquired the Las Vegas Region of Coldwell Banker Premier Realty. In just 7 years, the company has increased from $7.9 million gross commission income to over $34 million in 2006.

As a true testament to his reputation for leadership and success, in 2005, Bob was hand-picked by MGM MIRAGE to be the Senior Vice President and Broker for its new $7 billion dollar Project CityCenter. The task of recruiting and training the sales team for this multi-billion dollar project was taken on with the same excitement and zeal that he is known for, which ultimately produced $1 billion dollars in sales in the first 100 days selling over 1,000 of the 2,700 residences released. Bob also developed CityCenter’s Preferred Agent Program by using his experience and connections, which develops relationships with cooperating brokers and has been key to much of their success.

Bob holds the designation of CRB, a Certified Residential Broker, served on the Board of Directors for the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors, is Chairman for the USAA Advisory Council and is also the Chairman for the Coldwell Banker Large Office Group, a committee of over 20 of the top CB brokers nationwide. In 2002, In Business Las Vegas named Bob one of the “Most Influential Businessmen in Southern Nevada,” and ranked him in their “Top 40 Under 40” special report. Perhaps no accolade speaks as prominently for Bob’s character, however, as the continuing and increasing success of his sales associates and staff at both Coldwell Banker Premier Realty and CityCenter Realty, who with impeccable integrity out-produce offices many times their size.

Tammy Pitts

Tammy Pitts

Vice President, Operations

Tammy was just 18 years old when she began her career working in the real estate industry as an assistant to one of the city’s top real estate professionals, Marilyn Squitieri. Becoming licensed in 1994 to further aid in the business at hand, she provided additional support to Marilyn’s increasing production by conducting open houses and showing property to the high-end customers of one of the most consummate professionals.

Being drawn to the administrative end of the real estate business, she accepted the Regional Administrator position for Coldwell Banker Premier Realty upon Marilyn’s retirement from the industry. Working with the three Las Vegas area offices headquartered in Salt Lake City, Tammy earned her stripes coordinating the day-to-day operations, events and staffing of the local region ultimately being recognized as the Support Staff Person of the year in 1996.

Being acquired by Bob & Molly Hamrick in 1998, Coldwell Banker Premier Realty took a huge leap forward in service and productivity with their core group of dynamic professionals leading the charge.

Utilizing her can-do and out-of-the-box approach for every project on the docket, Tammy has been instrumental in creating functional operational systems essential for a company ranked #24 in the country out of over 1,200 Coldwell Banker companies to continually increase productivity year after year. These include establishing simple and effective transaction management systems and paperwork processes, coordinating entertaining events for support staff and agents in addition to working hand in hand with each member of the Leadership Team to streamline work flow and communication from department to department to the agents and ultimately to the public. Most recently, she has taken on the tasks of managing the company’s legal files, transaction compliance and maintaining the company’s forms and contracts used in each of the 5,550 real estate transactions that took place in 2009.

Admittedly, the most exciting part of the Vice President of Operations position according to Tammy is watching CBPR’s real estate professionals and administrative support staff flourish, from selling their first home to earning six figures, or from managing a file to being promoted to head of a department. She has always rejected the typical hierarchy mindset and views all CBPR employees as having an equal partnership within the organization, simply with different tasks to accomplish utilizing the various talents they possess.
