"Paul was great to work with. Whenever we would visit a property he would just let us walk around and wait to see if we had any questions. We must have visited a dozen or more properties and he was always "no pressure" and would let us do our own thing. We REALLY appreciated that approach and don't like it when Realtors follow you around and constantly point out different things about a home. He knew the area very well and his process skills were very good as well. Highly recommend Paul."
