What do Clients Say?

"I work in the real estate industry and get to see many realtors in action. So when it came time to sell my own home because I was moving out of state, Paula was hands-down the obvious choice for me. Even knowing her excellent reputation and the quality of her work ahead of time, she still blew me away when it came to selling my home. Her advice and guidance about staging and preparing the house for photos was invaluable and made a huge impact on the listing presentation. Her market analysis and recommended listing price were spot-on. We listed on a Friday and were under contract by Sunday evening--after getting multiple fantastic offers (which I firmly attribute to her magic touch when it came to staging!). She was incredibly communicative and responsive throughout the whole selling process. She kept me informed every step of the way and made the whole thing incredibly easy on me. I can't say enough good things about her and the work she does!" Sam R.

Paula’s energy and enthusiasm are infectious. Her knowledge, professionalism and thoroughness are unmatched.

“Paula added a lot of value to my listing; far exceeding my expectations. She was methodical and transparent in her calculation of a fair market price, strategic in her marketing efforts, had a keen eye for detail on things that would make a difference to potential buyers viewing the property, and had great ideas to add value for the buyers that were easy to implement. Paula’s responsiveness and her clear and thoughtful and timely communication skills were most appreciated. She kept us informed every step of the way. She negotiated with the buyer’s agent and was able to get us multiple offers over asking. We have bought and sold many properties and this experience topped them all." Kathleen Q.

“Paula truly takes the time to get to know her customers – both on the buying and selling end. She asks the right questions, learns what’s most important to her customers and then actively works to insure that she exceeds their expectations. She is diligent in her research, and persistent in follow up - always working to make sure that she can put together the best possible deal for her clients. As an added bonus? Her delightful personality makes spending time with her during the buying or selling process a true joy.” Susan L.

Paula grew up on a family farm in Pennsylvania. In 1999, she came to Charlottesville as a financial services executive and even though her career took her all over the United States, she knew she would return and make Charlottesville her “forever” home. She had the joy of living in the city of Richmond, VA in a second home and discovering the wonder of the city and surrounding area. 

Paula has a deep appreciation for all that makes the central Virginia area so unique. She enjoys being in nature while hiking and kayaking as well as feasting on our bounty of food and libations from local farms and purveyors of fine Virginia products.
