Bought a home in 2014 in Beacon Hill, Riverton-Boulevard Park, WA 98108.
Primary point of contact: Matthew Reichlin

Paul Cantu was extremely proactive in reaching out and scheduling an appointment with us after we browsed listings on his website. We worked with his associate, Matthew Reichlin, who was very helpful and ensured everything went smooth during the entire home buying process.

Sold a home in 2014 in University District, Seattle, WA 98195.

Paul did a great job for us! He sold our townhouse in Greenlake area in just 2 days, and at a final sale price higher than our asking price. It was a smooth process and we were glad we used him.

Bought a home in 2014.

I contacted Paul for purchasing a home as a newcomer. From the start of the process (first email), Paul was amazingly attentive when other agents brushed me off, and after I met him, he went way beyond to help me find the perfect home. He met me even over the weekend and prepped everything. Then just on the first day out, he had preselected the homes he would be sure I would like. I selected what I wanted (Seattle market is hot!) and I had my offer accepted in less than 6 hours. Paul also has a reputation in the industry so his offers are taken more seriously and given the credit. I loved working with Paul and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of real estate services in Seattle. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market, the best areas, etc... and knows a lot of professionals in the industry so he can help with various stages of the home purchase process and also for any needs you can have as a property owner. I would never use any other agent in the future and I think working with Paul made the process way way way easier and totally pleasant for a first time home buyer like myself. Thank you very much Paul.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Haller Lake, Seattle, WA.

I met Paul Cantu about 10 years ago over the phone, he was looking for listings and at that time I wasn't ready to sell. I told him that I would get back to him when I was ready. Paul was never pushy and always very courteous, to me, that was very impressive. April of this year, I finally decided to sell. So I called Paul. He told me that he could sell my house in a very short amount of time. He said that he and his group had a proven method that could sell my house and just a couple weeks time. I have to admit I was very skeptical, after all, he's a salesman and we all know how salesman are. Well, Paul isn't like that, he indeed had a method and the experience, and he did exactly what he said he was going to do. He first sent me some paperwork to sign so he could sell my house. Second, he told me to put my trust in him. That was pretty tough for me. He's a salesman and we all know how salespeople are. Reluctantly, I let them have at it. He told me that if he didn't do what he said he was going to do and I didn't like what he was doing. I could fire him. I had nothing to lose and more to gain. He sent out a photographer and took some beautiful pictures of my house, listed it and told me he would have bids in a weeks time. I thought all of this was way too good to be true. But to my surprise, everything Paul said that he would do. He did, which surprised me out of my wits. Just like Paul said, I had bids in less than a week that he submitted to me. The bids, all exceeded what I was asking for my house. Paul told me that was going to happen, and did it ever. He told me that he had a proven method that he and his group use, and they have used it for 14 years and it is honest and true. I am still in awe. I still don't trust salespeople because most of them will tell you anything you want to hear; not in Paul's case, what he says he will do. When it comes time for me to sell another house. I will go right to Paul's group and I will recommend him to anybody. Cantu group stands for honesty and integrity, and I am very very impressed. Cantu Real Estate can use me for a reference anytime. My name is George Crook and you can get my phone number from Paul if you want to hear more. It's all good

Paul Cantu's 5-day Quick Sale program is awesome. His extensive marketing got us 112% of our asking price, (in 3 days!), on our Green Lake townhouse, and $42K higher than an identical recently sold townhouse just down the street.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Federal Way, WA.

Paul Cantu and his team helped me sell my condo after I moved out of state. A very unique situation left me with a mortgage and no tenants. Paul openly listened to my situation, and ensured me that he would love to work with me in selling my condo. Within 3 weeks of listing my short sale condo, we had an offer, and through a long negotiation process, my short sale closed a few days ago! Mercedes Cantu is one of the sweetest ladies I've worked with. The team was knowledgeable, respectful, and responsive. I would (and will) recommend the Cantu Group for anyone's buying or selling needs!

Sold a Apartment home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Wallingford, Seattle, WA.

Paul Cantu's awesome 5-day Quick Sale program really works. His 5 Day Quick Sale resulted in over 160 people through my home and multiple buyers with offers bidding against each other. In the end, I accepted an offer at 106.9% of the asking price with a waived inspection! I can't say enough about Paul and his team of professionals.
