"Moving from out of state on a military move, Andrew was excellent to guide us in the right direction! From finding a temporary home to purchasing our permanent home, he is highly skilled in the area, and we are extremely pleased."
"I contacted Andrew to help me decide what needed to happen for me to sell my home QUICKLY! He recommended renovations to the inside and out. After an amazing job of getting all estimates, contractors, and time frame in place Andrew started and supervised until everything was completed and on time! He negotiated cost, labor, and materials within my budget. After completion, the house was listed and sold within 2 days. That's not all! He knew that I needed a home. I decided to move to Miramar Beach. Andrew found a house that was under construction (which is what I wanted) and did all the work to secure this house and worked all the negotiations with builder/listing agent. I always felt that Andrew was my advocate throughout this entire process. After two closings, I realized that Andrew was the absolute BEST at what he does. If I ever do this again, Andrew will be my FIRST CHOICE and my SOUND CHOICE!!"
"We used Andrew to purchase a beach condo for our family. We were out of state buyers with a limited purchase time frame. Andrew identified numerous properties that fit our criteria, patiently showed us all of them and successfully helped us close on the property before our deadline. He was with us through the entire process and anticipated our every need. We highly recommend Andrew for any of your real estate needs."
"Andrew and Curtis made our home buying experience very smooth and hassle free. They had excellent communication with us through every step of the process. They also helped us get the best deal possible on our home through research, and field expertise."
"Andrew was great! We put our house on the market with another realtor and it never sold. Once we hired Sound Choice Real Estate it finally did! Our questions and concerns were answered promptly and we appreciate the Sound Choice team. Highly recommend!"
"My husband and I are extremely pleased with Curtis as our realtor! We are first time home buyers currently under contract on a property that wasn't even on our radar - from before we met to finally having an offer accepted in a competitive market, we've had a fantastic experience! Curtis has been super helpful with all of our questions/concerns, proactive (in so many ways!), considerate of our needs/wants, well informed, never pushy, and always responds quickly and completely. Curtis is a true professional, and also genuinely nice. We couldn't be happier that we've crossed paths - don't hesitate to reach out to him - you will not be disappointed!"
"We were looking to move from Indiana to the Niceville area. Andrew and Curtis were very knowledgeable about the area, great to work with and responsive to our concerns. Curtis was with us for the walk through and closing and was very helpful. They answered all our questions (and we had a lot of them!) about the buying process and home ownership in Florida. We bought a home in Hammock Bay and are very happy. We would recommend Sound Choice Real Estate to anyone moving to the area."
"Andrew Tidwell and his team were by far the right realtor to pick to sell our house. He was always there to answer our questions and worked with us to make the sale work with our timeline and marketed the place to highlight the upgrades to set our house apart from similar houses in the area that did not have the added features. We ended up with multiple offers and he insured we picked the right one and negotiated to ensure we got the best offer. Andrew really went to bat for us and was a 'sound choice' in a pick to represent our home. We would highly recommend him to anyone that is selling or buying in the area as he is a local and knows his stuff and does not just tell you what you want to hear."
"Amazing experience with Andrew Tidwell from start to finish. We were out of town buyers, and he made the process seamless for us even with the distance. Andrew is knowledgeable about the Niceville area and is generous with his time. We truly credit him with securing our home for us despite a multiple offer situation. We can't recommend him and his team enough!"
"Highly recommend Andrew! He has a deep knowledge of the market; always available and responsive for questions, endlessly patient. Very helpful in explaining the entire process. Always prepared. Gave thoughtful advice in preparing our home for sale. Helped us set realistic expectations. Arranged for staging and photographs, knows anyone you need for upgrades to your home. Very approachable, a man of integrity. We were very satisfied, extremely pleased. Helped relieve the stress of selling."
