Primary point of contact: Beth Cockrell
We became acquainted with Paul and his wife, Larena through their management company in Jan 2010. They did a wonderful job managing our house and if any issues came up they were able solve them quickly and efficiently. The same could be said when we decided to sell our house this past spring of 2014. The sale process went very smoothly and this was all due to Paul and his office. A big thanks to Paul and his associates!

Paul and his team were responsible for the marketing and selling of my Florida home last July. From the time of accepting the offer to receiving the money was less than one month and no hic cups at all. The money was transferred to my bank account within and hour of the completion. I was very impressed with the way Paul and his team handled the whole deal as I was in the UK for the whole transaction. I can thoroughly recommend Paul and his team as I was most impressed and satisfied.
I was so pleased with the result that we have become friends and I visit him every time I visit Florida.

My first encounter with Paul Hickey dates back to February 2013. When I first called Paul on a property he had listed in Davenport Fl. Paul was very fast and professional In getting back to me. He then immediately began to communicate with the seller and myself. I lived in Pennsylvania and had to fly to Florida if I wanted to buy the property. Looking back on it now Paul would have not had me buy it site unseen. Paul negotiated on my behalf with the seller until we reached a amicable agreement. When I decided to come down Paul and I met the very next day. His professionalism and knowledge of the real-estate market were immediately obvious. He spent the next few days with me wanting me to be sure of my decision. At times I thought he was trying to talk me out of the house. He took me to other developments as well as other homes in the development I was looking. I remember him saying "Blaise I don't want to sell you something that you are not 100 percent happy with. It's not worth it." It was obvious that Paul had my interest and concerns before his own. That impressed me! More recently I talked to Paul about a property that he recommended looking at, after I looked at it Paul and I discussed my current personal situation. Paul then proceeded to say to me take your time Blaise maybe this is not the right thing for you now. Once again I saw a person with genuine concern for his fellow man not his pocket book. Sincerely, Blaise A Greco

Paul, as well as being a realtor, runs Florida Gold, a property management company, with his wife Larena.
We had a rental home that was very well maintained by them. Paul was always very helpful and nothing was too much trouble - a genuinely nice guy, with a good sense of humour!
We had always found him to be professional in his approach, so when we decided to sell our rental home and needed a realtor, Paul was the obvious choice for us. As a British couple we were unfamiliar with the selling procedure in the US, but Paul explained everything in detail, and we were even more confident that we had made the right decision. The way he worded the MLS listing was perfect and after 2 viewings within a few days of that listing we had accepted an offer. We closed on the sale 4 week’s later.

My husband and I have worked with Paul Hickey on the purchase of our new home in the Orlando area. He was really great throughout the whole process - always available to answer any question we have, very prompt and thorough with all of the paperwork and on top of everything we need to complete, and extremely helpful since we are new to the area. He is a top-notch professional and a genuinely nice person. I highly recommend him and will be using him again when we decide to purchase our next home!
I have know Paul for approximately four years. I found his name on the Better Business Bureau website when I was looking for a property management company. He came with five stars and fabulous references. I emailed Paul and he responded immediately. We discussed the house at length, and he offered suggestions as to what options were available to me and was honest and up front as to what I could expect for rent, for monthly fees, from his company/employees and from him. He was right on the mark about everything and I've never been disappointed. He is definitely efficient, knowledgeable and caring and I would have no hesitation recommending him.

We have been clients of Paul Hickey and Florida Gold for several years and have been impressed with the excellent service he provides. We randomly chose Paul's management company to manage our holiday villa after being disappointed with two other companies. We know that any problem will be dealt with immediately and are confident in Paul's management skills. We would recommend him 100%.

We needed to sell our holiday home quickly due to family illness. Paul Hickey and the staff in Florida Gold Real Estate handled the matter brilliantly for us and we couldn't have asked for better real estate agents. They responded to calls immediately, if they weren't available they called back the same day, they explained the process to us step by step and they were genuinely interested in ensuring the best outcome as possible for us. In a world where a lot of business just want to take your dollar and do as little as possible in return Paul Hickey and the staff at Florida Gold Real Estate were an absolute breath of fresh air. Hopefully in the future we will be purchasing another Holiday Home in Florida and the only people we will be considering to assist us in this process will be Paul and his wonderful staff. Honestly we've dealt with people over there (purchasing the house, purchasing furniture and a couple of Management Companies) and Paul Hickey and his staff are the very best there are out there. They are professional, courteous, efficient, expeditious and are everything you would want to assist you when buying or selling a property in Florida. We were absolutely delighted with the service we got.

Following a bad experience with another agent, we moved the management of our short term rental property to Paul at Florida Gold in 2009. Since then there hasn’t been a single issue or problem that Paul and his team could not resolve for us in a timely manner; they are responsive and extremely professional. For the last year the property has been rented out long term and Paul made this a very easy process for us, especially when we live abroad and in a completely different time zone. Monthly statements are prompt and accurate and we fully trust decisions made to ensure our property is maintained to a high standard. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul Hickey.

Paul was very professional and worked well in all different steps of the purchase, especially the one where we went through 2 short sale failures and a successful REO bid. We liked his patience in dealing with things when we needed the most. He is quite knowledgable about the local pricing, deals etc
