Paula is very attentive and responds rapidly to requests. Paula handled all the steps of home ownership in stride. She has good insight into the local business and has the experience to handle any problems. As owners from Texas, we were not sure if we should proceed with property as is when the property is so far away. I am glad I trusted Paula's recommendations and she offered plenty of facts and figures to support her choices. You can't go wrong with this lady!!
Paula is a very pleasant person to work with.Her knowledge of the Taos area is good.Her skills about an interior of a house like flooring,heating,roofing etc.is adequite.I certainly would recommend her very to anyone that needs to find a home in the Taos area.I took ill before I was able to continue negotiations to purchase a home up in Taos,but would contact Paula again to help me with a home purchase.Thank you,G.Hopper
Paula has been selling real estate in the Angel Fire and Taos area for many years. She's worked her way up the ranks and paid her dues. There are a few things that make Paula a good choice whether you're planning to buy or sell a home.
First, she has been working in land and higher end homes for several years and appears to have a good client list. Pretty much any broker will take your listing, but not all of them have the client list to actually sell your home. Rather, they rely on the multiple listings to attract potential clients. While Paula certainly uses multiple listings, she also makes contact with people.
Second, Paula is one of the few brokers in this area that has fully embraced the power of the internet for her advertising. Of course, she advertises in the conventional manners too, but she spends a lot of time and money getting her listings out there on the internet for all to see.
Finally, Paula can close a deal. After all, you can do all the advertising and attract all the clients you want, but in the end you have to be able to close a deal. Paula's unique ability to match a client with a property they actually want make her a really good choice for your listing. She's also a good bet if you're looking to buy for the same reason; she can match what you want with a property.
So, whether you want a broker to list your property or you simply want a broker to find the perfect property for your needs, Paula is sure to be a good fit.
Paula contacted us quickly to help us with buying our vacation/retirement home. She listened our needs and got to know what we wanted in a home. We live in another state from where we purchased our new property, therefore she had to work with us on our time schedule and from a distance. She had everything organized and ready when we came to look at properties. Our closing worked smoothly, even though she was out of the country at the time. We highly recommend Paula and thank her for helping us find our new home.
Paula helped us find and buy our Taos casita. She was very knowledgeable of the Taos market. She did not rush us in making our choice and was straightforward in answering our questions, which really helped us think through our choice. We highly recommend her!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Englewood, CO.
As out-of-towners looking for a second home, we didn't know anyone in Taos to ask for a reference for a realtor, so based on her reviews on on-line realty sites we took a chance on Paula -- and we're so glad we did! She responded immediately to our e-mail inquiry and was open and available when it came to setting up appointments to meet in Taos. Her knowledge of Taos and the surrounding communities is impressive. Perhaps most importantly, she was an absolute joy to work with -- friendly, funny, interesting (like many Taosenos, she is an accomplished artist!), and honest. We found something we liked and within a week we were under contract. We know we can already count on having a friend in Taos when we get there. We highly recommend Paula Madappa!
Paula was extremely professional throughout our first home buying experience. She was able to bring documents by our work and was always very punctual during the entire process.
We had a fixed budget to work with and she wasn't judgmental about it. Paula helped get the price down to where we could afford to purchase our first home. A previous realtor didn't feel that we could afford a home in Taos, but Paula helped make our dream come true.
We would highly recommend Paula Madappa to any person attempting to purchase a home.
We recently purchased a home in Taos with the help of Paula Madapa. She is attentive, knowledgeable and quick to respond to inquiries. Paula understood what we were looking for in a house and steered us in the right direction when purchasing our first home. She's also fun to be around! We definitely recommend Paula for a personable experience in home buying.
We highly recommend Paula Madappa if you are interested in buying or selling real estate in the Taos/Angel Fire area. We recently closed on the purchase of our wonderful little mountain cabin in Angel Fire with the help of Paula. We had been looking for several months, and had worked with another realtor without good results. After seeing a foreclosed property on Trulia, I contacted Paula who immediately went into action. She braved snow drifts to confirm that the house had the views we required and promised to be available whenever we wanted to visit the property! We flew into NM the following week and made an offer on the house. Paula was in constant communication through the negotiations and all the way to closing. She worked tirelessly to get the best deal possible, and we knew she was always working on our behalf. Paula is knowledgeable, candid, efficient and fun to work with! She did a great job and we would not hesitate to work with her again and recommend her to our friends.
Paula is amazing! She offers much more than just real estate needs. She knows the in's and out's of the area and honestly tells it like it is. Her attention to detail, constant communication and true customer service are evident with every step of the process. We had some really crazy situations come up while going through the purchase of our condo. Paula was always calm and collected and offered many resolutions for us. As my husband put it, "Paula jumped through hoops for us." She is a talented artist and great business woman. I hope anyone in the market to buy or sell has the opportunity to work with Paula.
