Sold a home in 2014.

Paul was a pleasure to work with, very professional, very prompt on all our needs and very easy to communicate with, even at the odd hours our purchase required. He worked through all of the interesting complications our seller put in our way with quickness and aplomb. His recommendation of a financial organization to fund our loan was very astute, and our lender worked very well with Paul to make our hunt and purchase go as smoothly as it could. Plus...Paul is a nice guy- someone I wouldn't mind hanging out with to watch football.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Clawson, Oakland, CA.

Working with Paul made my house buying experience easy and stress-free. We found pictures of a house we liked and Paul got us in that day to see it and negotiated a great offer on the house when we decided to pursue it. He also negotiated a seller refund for an old heating system and made sure that everything was working and looked in good condition right with us while we were on site at the house. He is really involved in the home buying process and makes his clients feel comfortable and at ease as he is there to explain and walk you through anything you have questions or concerns about regarding the house. He even provides timelines, letting you know what needs to be done step by step, as well as easy online signing for all paperwork.

I would highly recommend Paul for any home buying or selling decision.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Glenview, Oakland, CA.

I expressed interest in a property back in August and Paul responded to my inquiry within an hour. I called him later that day and we ended up meeting that week to discuss our home buying goals, questions, etc. He was very approachable and knowledgeable, which I thought was a great combination for a real estate agent. This was our first time looking to purchase a home and Paul walked us through the entire process and made sure we understood everything that was being discussed. Within one week of our first meeting, he was taking us to see homes. He understood what we were looking for and was able to balance our needs with the reality of the market to point us in the right direction. When we started making offers, he let us know what he thought, but was always sure to empower us that the decision was ours. He was able to strike that balance between guiding us and supporting our decisions. Once we entered into contract on our home, he gave us a timeline of everything that was going to happen - which was extremely helpful, especially as first time buyers. When we were near closing and had to go to the title office to sign the loan documents, Paul met us there even though he didn't have to, and we really appreciated that. It was nice because we felt he was always in our corner. Now that we're moving in to our house, he is still helping us with some issues, and could not be more appreciative. We highly recommend Paul!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in San Leandro, CA.

I am a first time home buyer and I'm very pleased that I chose Paul as my agent. He was very informative, honest and knowledgeable. He was always quick to respond to all my questions and helped lessen the stress of the home buying process. He was great at walking me through every step of the process and helped explain all the documents I had to sign. Paul took me to look at several houses and was always on time and made sure to do research on the property beforehand. He also got me in touch with a really great mortgage lender. Paul is the reason why I was able to purchase the home that I really fell in love with. Our offer was not the highest, but with Paul's great negotiating skills, our offer was the most appealing and I was able to purchase an amazing home. It was a miracle, especially in this market. I would definitely choose Paul as my agent if I were to purchase again. I have recommended him to my friends and will continue to do so.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Tuxedo, Oakland, CA.

I am a first-time home buyer and Paul was extremely helpful in guiding me through the process. His advice on placing an offer and negotiating terms was right on target to compete with other other bidders in a competitive market. It took just under two months to complete my home search, from first meeting and openhouse to close of escrow and ownership.

Paul is very knowledgable of the local market, what's required to move forward, and his referrals for loan agent and house inspections were impressive, as well. He is patient, responsive, tustworthy. I highly recommend Paul!

Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Tuxedo, Oakland, CA.

Paul listened to what we wanted and focused on our needs. He was quick to take action when we saw something we liked. Paul helped us through the whole process of finding a place, placing an offer, and escrow closing all within 7 weeks of our first visit with him.

I had so many friends who "loved" their realtors and yset were amazed at how quickly and smoothly Paul helped us find our home. Trust me - he is amazing & has a great sense of humor!

Bought a home in 2014.

Working with Paul was a very pleasant experience. He really had my back, and represented by best interests. He was punctual and most responsive to everything. As well, he was able to calm my fears, being a first time buyer, and was able to guide me through the process very efficiently.

Bought a home in 2014.

I was extremely impressed with Paul Talbot He was very knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated. He was very attentive and quickly learned exactly what I was looking for. He would search the sites available and put together a list of houses he knew I would like. He never wasted my time. His guidance and expertise were excellent. He has a delightful personality and was so supportive. When my bid was not accepted he was always positive and encouraging. He never gave up on me and my limited budget. He always promised we would find my house, and we did. I am so happy with my new home and I could not have done it without Paul.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Harrington, Oakland, CA.

Paul Talbot is a Winner! As a first time homebuyer, I came into the process with a lot of anxiety and uncertainty, but , Paul guided me through the twists and turns (and there were a lot of unexpected detours along the way!) calmly and patiently. He returned all my calls promptly and was responsive to all my questions, no matter how basic. He was professional and yet very personable and seemed to be genuinely concerned about the personal worries I had. House buying is a very challenging process, technically, personally and emotionally, and having an agent that facilitates success with much knowledge and compassion combined surely makes the whole experience easier. Paul is the perfect real estate agent for Success!!!
