Past Client Testimonials

" We were fortunate to have worked with Paula before and knew she would be an excellent choice due to her attention to detail, extensive knowledge of market and her established track record of professionalism.  In fact, she represented the seller when we bought the house, and, even then we recognized her real estate savvy and professional expertise, so much so that we did not hesitate to contact her when it came time to sell the home.

We were very thankful to have Paula on our side.  Her commitment to excellence, attention to detail, proven record of success, and vast knowledge of the market were instrumental in the successful sale of our house.  Her professionalism was greatly appreciated and was markedly better than any agent we have ever dealt with in our 12 moves.  She really is a pro and anyone would be wise to give her a call.  She outperforms her peers and it shows.  She excels at viewing the possibilities and issues from multiple angles and is a very effective negotiator.  Definitely will recommend her to all our friends. As an added bonus, if you are military she sets you up with a fantastic rebate paid at closing via Realogy Military Rewards.  Greatly appreciated!!!

 

Paula has a great personality and is extremely attentive, considerate, responsive, and accessible. She was a true pleasure to work with and it really is no wonder why she has such a stellar reputation. "
