Tell Us Your Story

We’re moving from California which made it a challenge searching for houses in Florida but Ricardo made the house buying process pretty seamless.

He set up a virtual tour for my wife and I and personally did a thorough walkthrough , taking the time to blue tape any and all imperfections for the new house we were about to purchase. He answered all of our questions in a timely and professional manner as well. I would definitely refer him to any of my friends or family that were looking for a realtor in the same area

Brianna Autman

Ricardo Hidalgo was my real estate agent when I started looking for my first home purchase.

I was not completely sure of what I was looking for, but he was very patient. He took me to a home that I would have never considered, and when we walked inside I knew that was our house. Using his expertise he knew that house was what I would love. His communication is always prompt and professional. In fact, he still stays in contact with me regarding available properties. I will definitely continue having him as my agent and I highly recommend him to everyone I meet.

Ricardo is a quintessential realtor for the panhandle market.

He has a great understanding of the market and is able to pivot based on client needs. Ricardo has the knowledge to help walk clients through any issues and help them understand the process well.

Chase Daniels

When buying my first home I ended up using Ricardo Hidalgo as my realtor.

The reason was he always got back to me fast (10min to early the next day if texting/calling after 11pm) and always been upfront and honest with everything he said and if he didn't know the answer he would tell me and get back to me with an answer ( Trust but verify, and his information was always correct). He also made the buying process easy and helped me along the way and even went above and beyond what I expected of him to do. We keep in tabs with each other even to this day and if/when I buy or sell again it will be through him as trust hard to earn and I trust him.

Michael Sawka

Ricardo is everything you can ask for in a real estate agent!

As a first time seller, I had a million and one questions. He is very patient and broke everything down in plain English so that I was never confused about any interaction. He moves quickly and swiftly where you forget that you’re even selling a house. I highly, highly recommend Ricardo if you are looking to get the best bang for your buck with the wealth of knowledge that he possesses. His record speaks for itself! Thank you again for everything! I know you will continue to be great.
