What do Clients Say?
Paul was referred to my wife and I through a colleague at work. From the time we met Paul there was instant trust. Paul has the natural ability to instill confidence in his clients. Paul's professionalism and knowledge of the industry paired with his willingness to listen and understand our needs make him a world class realtor. I would refer Paul to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. He is one of the best in the area.Benjamin Salo - 2018 Buyer
Paul was a pleasure to work with. With his knowledge of the local market, we were able to list our condo at the right price and we're in contract within 6 days. He communicated with us on a daily basis and made the home selling process a breeze. We would highly recommend Paul for all your real estate needs.Christina Joly Nourian - 2018 Seller
After speaking with many of the professionals in the area, I selected Paul as my realtor. I was extremely happy with my choice. From day one of the process, Paul and his team were knowledgeable, organized, great communication/coordination skills and had done due dillegence on what MY HOME value was and the target asking price. All said, we had the best experience you could ask for start to closing and came in at asking price. I highly recommend Paul for your needs, although selling or buying a home can be stressful, I found that working with Paul quite refreshing and as stress free as you can ask for!Bruce Melanson - 2018 Seller
Paul was fantastic to work with as he helped us to find our dream home! He answered countless emails, phone calls, and text messages and was extremely personable every step of the way. He was able to answer every question and made sure that my husband and I understood everything that came our way!! Paul and his team made the process extremely simple - we are so grateful for him and his expertise!!Jessica Boksen - 2018 Seller and Buyer
Buying a home can be an extremely personable, exciting, yet somewhat scary at times, especially when its your first, with Paul, you get to enjoy the exciting and happy times as he's able to make the process smooth, easy, and calculated. We only looked at 8 houses and in less than 3 weeks found our home, and there was absolutely no settling due to the fact he hit every small detail we wanted. Paul explains every little detail throughout each process, was available at almost any time, including Easter this past year. Paul was referred to me and I've already referred him to two of my friends. Thank you again PaulMatthew Harvey - 2017 Buyer
