Bought a Single Family home in 2006 in Madison, MS.
I met Paula in 2006 when I began to search for my first home to purchase. She was so patient with me and so knowledgeable about the particular area where I wanted to be. She really helped guide me through the homebuying process, and I NEVER felt pressured by her to make a decision. Paula took care of everything, and I never doubted her knowledge of the home buying process, which can be so daunting. Not only is she my realtor; she is my friend. She will definitely be my listing agent when I get ready to sell my house. I have no doubt she will get it sold! Paula is, hands down, an expert in her field!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Brandon, MS.
After a disappointing experience with a couple of other agents, Paula was recommended to us by a friend in the area. We contacted her, and she immediately started working for us - not for the seller, selling agent, or herself. We were her clients and our satisfaction was her ultimate concern without ever trying to pressuring us into any decision. If we asked a question or her opinion, she would then honestly answer. She had great knowledge of the area and knew how to use that knowledge and experience to successfully negotiate with "facts" behind her. After the sell, she has continued to support us and help us find good local services required when moving to a new area.
I Loved working with Paula Ricks. She is very experienced in what she does and does it well. I would highly recommend her to you. Very professional and will make sure that you find the home for you. I would work with her again. Loved her :) She was always available any time that I needed to talk to her which was good for me being a first time home buyer.
I was transferred out of town and my house sat on the market for a year. I found Paula on the Dave Ramsey website as a recommended provider and gave her a call. Paula sold my house in six days. When I transferred back two years later I gave Paula a call. She found my wife and I the exact house we were looking for.
She is very professional and I have recommended her many times to friends and family. I'm sure you will love her as much as we do. Call her!
Paula was excellent, and we would recommend her to anyone! First of all, she was able to sell our home in a timely manner that we thought would never sell due to the high volume of houses for sale in our neighborhood. She was in contact with us regularly and gave great tips of how we could make our home more marketable. Her website is amazing with wonderful pictures and descriptions that made our house look so desirable. The closing was flawless with little worry because she took care of everything. Then the hunt was on for our dream home. We immediately fell in love with one house, but the price was out of our range. Paula negotiated with the sellers over a 4 month period to finally get the price down to what we could afford. Throughout those 4 months, she kept in contact with us daily as we looked for other homes and continued to negotiate on our dream home. Paula got us this house, and we have never been happier! I can say with certainty that I wouldn't have been happier with any other realtor. Not only was she our realtor, but she became our friend. Selling and buying a house was very intimidating for us, but she made things so easy and took care of everything. I would recommend her to anyone!
