Paul was generically given to us due to the current area we live in through the ZipRealty website. He was assigned to us and we had reservations because you never know whom you will get. However when we met Paul he was very patient, accommodating and knowledgeable to helping us get a good idea of finding that right house. Between so many personal changes, scheduling issues and other things that come up in life Paul was always there to help out or work with us to see a house or wait for us until things in our lives came together.
We found homes we like and homes we were on the fence about. But after a few homes Paul knew what we were really looking for. We came to trust Paul opinion in helping us find a home that would be a good fit for our family, even after a long extensive search of many homes. He helped us eliminate so many homes that would have been a waste of time to look at and focused on what we really wanted in a home and what our needs and criteria are for a new home that we should focus on.
My wife has an idea and so do I, but they don't always line up. So between the two different thought patterns of my wife and I; with Paul help we finally found a home that we are happy with, all the people that he recommended in the closing, inspections and the mortgage person that we knew everyone worked well together and besides the usual paper work, that's out of most of our hands (Especially a VA Loan) it was finally nice to close and get into a great home that my wife and I are happy with.
We would recommend Paul to anyone that is looking for a home, that they can trust in his opinion and it's nice to see some one that gets down and dirty, brings his own flash lights and goes through every nook and cranny of a house so you don't have to get dirty and make sure that the house if we like it we know the obvious issues that come along with it and that we will be comfortable with it if we decide to purchase the home.
My kids got comfortable with Paul since he has helped us look for a while and he was patient with us and them. Any parent knows when your lugging young children (infants and toddlers) or pre-teens around it's not easy, but Paul was very patient and professional and that helped with the kids as well.
Thank you Paul for the help and if we decide to sell or win the lottery to buy a second home, he'll be the first agent we will look up to help us out again.
