We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Missoula, MT

On the get-go of contacting Deke about his listing, he was impressive. He was thorough, professional, insightful, and eager to help me look for small acreage I was interested in. Although we never met in person since I live 1800 miles away, he was delightful to work with. Unfortunately, my plans to view properties with him never happened due to change of travel plans. However, when I can get to Missoula, MT to pursue looking, I will certainly want Deke as my agent. Outstanding service. I just dropped the ball.

Dee, Thank you so much for your kind words. Know that when you're ready to hit the ground running, I'll be here to assist. Bar none, my favorite aspect of this job is showing new people the wonderfulness that is Missoula. Please keep in touch!! Deke

Bought a home in 2012.

Deke is amazing. He is personal yet professional in the best way a realtor can be. My husband and I both immediately felt comfortable working with him. He is an excellent communicator, and that I what we needed for buying our first home. Deke even help with explaining many things about the loan process and typed out an unofficial timeline/order of process when we found a home so we knew what to expect next. Since working with Deke and talking to other friends about frustrations with their realtors, I've come to appreciate him even more. Please use him! He's already helped me and two co-workers find homes! Katie and Johan Eriksson

Bought a home in 2013.

Deke was low pressure and very easy to work with, but definitely went above and beyond to ensure we found the right home for our family and that the whole transaction went smoothly and as quickly as possible, staying in contact with us all along the way. We've worked with a few realtors, and have never been very impressed, but Deke was outstanding.

We presented Deke with a challenge! Finding a property that could house ALL of our extended family.The propert alao neede to be close to other properties that would be appropriate for other family.Deke met our challenge and then some. He was always our champion! Deke was personable,professional and even more important to us,always available. We will never use another agent as long as Deke is in the real estate business! he is part of our Montana family for life!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in South 39th Street, Missoula, MT.

Deke Tidwell did a wonderful job of helping my family list and sell my fathers house after his passing. Deke adviced me in how to respond to the sellers demands and what to expect and it all worked. I am sorry if this is real general but I am not good at remembering details but I have to say that working with Deke was a very good experiance. He was always straight to the point about things and very honest and that was very refreshing to me. I would hire Deke again any time.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Florence, MT.

We like Deke's down to earth approach to housing. He was extremely patient with our difficult situations that allowed us to move into a "PERFECT" home for us. He was relentless in his search for solutions with a great attitude. With his good sense of humor and ability to see practical potential, we recommend Deke whenever possible. We look forward to working with him in the future.

Bought a home in 2012.

My husband and I had had a bad previous experience with a realtor and we were seriously gun shy. We noticed a home that we were interested in seeing so we called the sellers agent to schedule a showing. The agent had a family issue and was unable to show the property so another agent from their office showed us the house. That’s how we met Deke. He immediately put us at ease. He knew the neighborhood and the facts about the home inside and out. He was confident and specific but not pushy or in our faces the whole time. He gave us room to explore and answered our questions effectively. By the time we left the property we knew that this was not he house for us but also that this was our new agent.

We set up a meeting with Deke to see another property and he checked in with us to make sure that our previous agent knew that we had gone another way. I was very impressed with his professional courtesy and consideration of agent he did not even know.

Throughout the hunt Deke was quick to answer calls and respond to questions. He did not wait for us to ask about properties but also offered up options that we may have overlooked. He learned what we were looking for quickly. By that I mean he really listened not just to what we said but also paid attention while we were looking at homes and was fast to develop a sense of what most drew us to homes and neighborhoods.

When we walked into the home we eventually bought we knew right away that it was the one but we had some financial concerns. The home was owned by a national corporation rather than “people” making the process more difficult to negotiate. Deke was an outstanding agent for our interests. He was exactly the right mix of aggressive go getter and thoughtful confidant.

Deke brokered a remarkable deal to get us into the home we had always dreamed of, and in record time. Everyone who comes into our home tells us that it is the perfect home for us. We still tell each other every day how much we love our home. The only other thing that we never fail to mention when people ask about our home is how it would not have been “our” home without the herculean efforts of Deke Tidwell.

If you are looking for a realtor who will listen to what you really want, explore every possible option, quickly reply to calls and email, and tirelessly advocate for you in the purchasing of your home Deke is the perfect agent for you. We eagerly give Deke Tidwell our highest of recommendations.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Rose Park, Missoula, MT.

Deke is great to work with and I would recommend him to anyone. He kept us in the loop and will do the same for you. I made him show us maybe 30 properties before we found what we were looking for. Thanks a bunch Deke! You are great!
