I had been casually looking at open houses for months and never saw anything that was quite right. Paula was recommended to me by my former agent, David Jordan, who I had worked with in San Jose some years ago. After an easy introductory phone call with her, she put together a list of open houses based on my preferences and we went out to see them. The first 2 homes much closer fits for me than I had seen in months and the 3rd one was perfect! Paula guided me through a compelling offer and handed it to the seller in person (!!!) while telling them all the reasons why they should choose my offer. I believe this made all the difference. There were 13 offers and they chose mine!
