Andrea Marks is hands down the best realtor we have ever worked with! We have used her three times in the past two years on different purchases. She is timely, professional, answers any questions promptly. She is simply fantastic to work with and has made every purchase as smooth as possible. Two of our purchases were made while we lived out of state and I knew I could count on her advice and experience to deliver a fantastic experience and that she did! I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell or purchase! I can’t thank her enough for everything she has helped us with! 10+ star review for Andrea! Tony Birk
No one knows Hot Springs real estate like Jim Kellstrom. We feel very fortunate that we met someone so knowledgeable about real estate and so familiar with the housing market in the Hot Springs area to help us with our move from Texas. Jim took the time to learn exactly what we wanted and then showed us homes that perfectly suited what we were looking for. He knew every neighborhood - maybe even every house and every potential future neighbor - in Hot Springs. Once we decided on the perfect home, Jim helped us on every step of the way toward our purchase, including determining a price to offer, advising us about financing, and guiding us through the closing process. And he didn't stop there. Even after the deal was done and we had moved in, he was happy to fill us in on how the local utilities operate, help us find local service contractors, and give us the inside scoop on local events and activities. He even recommended several restaurants, and every one we have tried has been excellent! Jim is simply the best.
When we decided to move to Hot Springs, AR, we chose Andrea Marks with First Choice Realty as our Real Estate Agent. Andrea is the most patient, kind and understanding real estate agent we have ever used. She was very accommodating working around our limited schedule, showing us several houses before we found what we were looking for. Andrea is very knowledgeable of the housing market in and around Hot Springs and is very professional in her field. If you’re looking for an awesome, caring, real estate agent in Hot Springs, Andrea is the one for you!

My wife and I decided to stop by Hot Springs on the way to a weeklong vacation in Eureka Springs. Being interested in beautiful, historic homes with character, we decided to view a home listed in the historic Quapaw-Prospect district. Leslie Ramsey responded quickly to our request, showed us the house, and we fell in love with it. We worked with Leslie, who also had the listing, to make an offer while we were in our cabin in Eureka Springs. By the time we were ready to come home to Houston, we had a contract on the house, and we have subsequently been thrilled with the house and the unique town of Hot Springs. Leslie was able to manage both sides of the transaction skillfully and ethically, resulting in a happy buyer and seller. Who could ask for more?! Thanks Leslie!!!
Andrea was a pleasure to work with. She was very honest in all her work with us and often went above and beyond normal expectations in the process. Her service to us after closing was exceptional. I believe her integrity is first rate and I would recommend her without reservation.

Jeff & Paulia Kennedy are the best agents we have ever worked with. Jeff knows the areas he services, has a fantastic grasp on the markets, & his advice has always been spot-on. He has sold a house & a lot for us. I don't think I have ever seen anyone in the business work harder than Jeff does. Jeff is first-rate & I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Andrea is a very professional realtor. I live out of state and she was very prompt and courteous in replying to inquiries into homes in the Hot Springs, AR area. She even emailed me additional listings that may have interested me. When I am ready to relocate, Andrea will be my realtor.
I would without doubt or hesitation involve Jeff's assistance again with any real estate transaction I'm considering. Extremely professional, honest, responsive, and a wealth of real estate knowledge during all phases of the sale, starting with the listing all the way through the closing of both houses he sold for us. (And at better prices than we expected). Even afterwards, he provided assistance to my wife and I that went above and beyond anything that we ever expected. If you are seeking the professionalism we experienced, Jeff would be our recommendation. Jerry Vlcek
First Choice Realty goes the second, third and fourth mile to make sure their clients are happy and receive the best outcome possible. Andrea Marks handled a small listing that I had which involved a difficult easement issue. She handled everything efficiently, pouring dozens of extra hours into getting the matter resolved and the property ready. The communication, marketing support, transparency and integrity throughout the listing, negotiation and closing were superb. I am very happy and recommend them to others without hesitation.
I have dealt with Jeff and Paulia for more than 10 years. It started as a real estate transaction and grew into a friendship. I have bought and sold many times, but I have never become friends with any of them except these 2. They are great people and a very good resource for most anything after the sale. I have used their knowledge for car mechanics locally to boat repairs. We really enjoy their company and still get together every once in a while to catch up. I would not use or recommend anyone else. They are the BEST. Jeff Buchanan
