Paul was extremely capable in selecting a number of properties meeting all of my requirements and within my price range. He went the extra mile in providing additional services regarding my condo purchase. One example was his hand drawn property layout with dimensions. Finally, Paul offered his help in connecting me with the best and most cost effective local contractors. I could not recommend him more highly!
Paul responded to an online notification of a house of interest, we met him at the property, and my husband and I both felt very comfortable and confident with him and asked him if he would be our realtor. He agreed. We only viewed the insides of two homes but had, truly, hundreds of questions about different odds and ends, legalities of North Carolina, taxes, laws, (we are from Virginia) and if he did not know the answer, he found out, promptly. He even walked the 2.5 property line with us because I wanted to know where my property line was!!! I am not exaggerating on the hundreds of questions. He represented us at closing, and sent the most beautiful and yummy basket as a thank you. It was an absolute pleasure having Paul as our representative, we highly and confidently recommend him as a realtor to anyone looking to purchase a home, and I am sure, in selling one as well.
My listing with Paul admittedly was not an easy one. It was a short sale in a market that is still recovering. He created a plan and was diligent, tactful and aggressive on my behalf. He never gave up marketing the property or keeping me informed. His knowledge and professionalism got me a solid offer and he ultimately closed the deal. I am forever grateful and would recommend Paul to anyone who wishes to buy or sell in or around the Lake Lure area.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Lake Lure, NC.
We've worked with Paul on more than one occasion and he listened to exactly what we were looking for each time. He made the extra effort to keep his eyes on new properties that were recently listed and informed us each time there was a new listing that met our needs and wants.
Paul went ABOVE and BEYOND. Incredible agent. Measuring the land. Handling phone calls on my behalf since I lived further away. Easy process. Always available for whatever needs arise. Would recommend him to anyone!!!
Paul was very nice, informative, and responsive. He was very knowledgable, and helped us find this lot, at a good price. Also, Paul was very dependable, always did what he said, which I appreciated very much.
We first met Paul when he was walking the property next to us with a buyer and we were impressed with the time he spent. When the time came to sell our property we knew that Paul was the one to contact. He did not disappoint. He responded immediately with the appropriate paperwork and began, also immediately, to show our lot. He kept us informed throughout the short time it took him to sell our lot. We recommend Paul very highly!
From the moment my wife and I met Paul we felt like we had gained a friend. We gave Paul our criteria in what we desired in a property and in a matter of days he presented us with a list of multiple properties to look at. He then took the time to show us the properties until we found the one that suited us best. Even after the transaction was finished and he was no longer involved, Paul provided us with vital information to help us settle in. I highly recommend Paul for your real estate needs. Thank you Paul, for your time and effort. Mr, & Mrs. Paul Haulk
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Lake Lure, NC.
We are more than impressed with Paul's professionalism and helpfulness. Paul has helped us to find the perfect property for our family. Always available by email, phone, or text, there was never a time that he did not provide an immediate response to our questions. We were thankful to find an agent who is extremely honest, is knowledgable of the Lake Lure area, and who was able to negotiate well for us in purchasing our new vacation home. One of the most important things for us was finding an agent who treated us with such respect and showed such a friendly nature. We recommend Paul without question. We continue to have Paul as our agent in the sale of another home.
