My fiance and I were lucky enough to work with Paul to buy our first house in Oakland. In the midst of an insane Bay Area market, Paul made the home buying process simple, fun, and even relaxed! From the very beginning, we knew we were in good hands. Paul educated us about the competitive Oakland market, walked us through what to expect, and helped us identify exactly what we were looking for in a home. When we found our ideal home, Paul advised us on creating a competitive offer with strong terms, and we got it - beating out 16 other offers. Paul also connected us with a great lender who was able to deliver the loan in less than three weeks. Throughout the process, Paul was readily available to promptly answer our many questions, often going to great lengths to get the info - and always with great professionalism and a sense of humor. With Paul's guidance, we were able to close on our beautiful condo within two months of starting the search. We would work with Paul again in a heartbeat and highly recommend him to Bay Area folks looking for a wonderful realtor to help buy or sell a home.
