Bruce McAdoo arrived to the Emerald Coast as a military dependent in 1978 and has affectionately called this area "Home" ever since.His father was an Air Force pilot and Bruce attended Shalimar Elementary, Meigs Middle School ("Junior High" at the time) , and graduated from Choctawhatchee High School.From there, Bruce embarked on a 25-year, notable, career in the Culinary world. He completed out this cycle of his professional life as the Executive Chef for 13+ years at the first-ever 4 Diamond AAA-rate
d Fine Dining restaurant here on the Gulf Coast known as "SEAGAR'S", located in the Hilton Sandestin Resort.Bruce is married to his childhood sweetheart, Louise Buchanan McAdoo and they have two young boys, Liam and Will.After making the decision to r etire from the Culinary industry, Bruce has chosen to continue to "serve" the community as a Realtor with ERA American. He feels this new career will still afford him the joy he gets from providing people with "black tie", "concierge-level" service from s
omeone they can trust and who has their best interest at heart. Bruce has always had a knack for taking care of people with this highest level of consideration and his expertise in this area is part of his top-notch, long-standing reputation in the local area.But perhaps more to the point, Bruce says his main goal in this new phase of his professional life is simply helping families navigate the process of making the Gulf Coast their perfect home. And that, of course, involves finding - and owning - the
perfect house as well

Mr. Bruce McAdoo treats each and every client as if they are his only client. He takes the time to thoroughly understand his clients' needs and desires in order to sell or purchase a new home or investment property. He works very hard and invests the time to "dig in" to all he can learn about a prospective property for the benefit of his clients. He is not only successful in his position - he puts his clients' needs first! I highly recommend Bruce to any friend or family member looking to sell or purchase a property as he offers the highest level of integrity and service one can expect.

Bruce is a wonderful realtor. He was very helpful in every step of the journey to help us find our perfect home. He was keen to our particular needs. He had an answer to every problem encountered along the way. He is very knowledgeable of the local area, contractors, and home inspectors. He goes above and beyond to help his clients. We are very happy homeowners thanks to Bruce McAdoo!

Bruce was very professional during our sale and then buying a condo. He kept us informed thru out the sale and purchase. I would definitely recommend him to sell your home and or buying one.

My mom and I were working with Bruce on the sale of the home where we both had lived for many years. About mid-way through the process, we decided to look for another home for my mom as Bruce had us moving in the right direction for the sale of the old home. We immediately contacted Bruce to discuss what we hoped to find and the locations of interest and he was able to connect us very quickly with the perfect property. Since it was new construction, it meant that there were many extra (and exciting) decisions that we had the opportunity to make regarding the home itself, however, it also meant that it was a process with many specific steps, timelines, meetings and decisions. Bruce had an attention to detail regarding all of the things that we needed to do and gave us fantastic support and guidance throughout the process. He personally attended all of the meetings when requested and was always ready with a “here’s an idea” when we were looking puzzled and wanted options. He kept us on schedule, reminded us of pending activities, followed up with any information that we requested and ultimately led us to us holding the keys to my mom’s new home. Bruce cared about us finding the perfect place for my mom. He was a trusted advisor throughout every step and is proof that integrity and thoughtfulness can go hand in hand with business know-how. We trusted Bruce with two life changing real estate transactions this year which speaks volumes. He is a STAR realtor and I recommend him highly.

When my mom and I wanted to sell our family home recently, we immediately called Bruce and asked him to be our real estate agent. This house was the place where I grew up and we both had lived for many many years so it was more than just a transaction but an emotional experience as well. The home was in need of some repair and my mom and I were both overwhelmed with the situation as we were not sure where to start and what to do. Bruce provided us with unparalleled support and service throughout the entire process. He guided us step by step, gave us options at the right points, kept us updated and on task with all of the activities and led us to an extremely smooth and happy sale. Bruce cared about us, our house and the difficulties we were having from the emotional side. He helped up to find a path to sell our home quickly (with multiple offers) and proved that honesty and kindness can go along with business skills and experience. We trust Bruce so much that before this sale completed, we had already engaged him to help us purchase another home for my mom. Bruce is a STAR realtor and I recommend him highly.

I was an absentee lanlord selling my townhouse, which needed a lot work, from a distance 2,500 miles. Bruce was my realtor but took on the job of coordinating the repair contractors and monitoring their progress and results. He did all this for no additional fee, just as a part of being a full service realtor. He also was immediately responsive to any questions or ideas that I had. I recommend him highly

Bruce McAdoo is a fantastic agent. I cannot say enough great things about him. He is professional, knowledgeable, and always available to answer any concerns. He walked us through every step of the selling process, and got our home sold almost immediately for us. I would highly recommend him for any real estate needs, as he will always guide you in the right direction. Great realtor, and really just a great guy!

Bruce is the best real estate agent I have ever dealt with. Being in the military, I move every 2 years and have bought 5 homes over the years, and have never had someone go above and beyond like Bruce did for us. As I said, he is the best!

Bruce was an awesome agent!! He took great strides to make my deal go through. He even postponed some personal plans one weekend to make sure the details were 110% taken care of. I was impressed with his dedication. He is a long term resident of the area and it shows. He seemed to know just where to look help me find my new home.

We are a military family out of state who desperately needed our home sold. Our home was listed with a nightmare realtor who took advantage of our being out of state. For 6 months our house sat on the market with no movement and terrible customer service. We were referred to Bruce who went above and beyond! It was a relief to know someone was caring for our property. In less than a month we had TWO offers and our home sold quickly. We cannot thank Bruce enough for his kindness, expertise, and the experience. He is all about customer service and HONEST which we sincerely appreciate. If you are in the military community looking for a realtor, you will be in GREAT hands with Bruce McAdoo!
