I cannot recommend Paul enough if you are interested in purchasing a home in New Jersey. He is an exclusive buyers agent, and he is an absolute pleasure to work with. There are several characteristics that Paul has as a realtor that are worth mentioning: he is flexible, he is very knowledgeable, he is always available and responsive, he is organized.
My first impression of Paul was the first day we went to look at houses. I really liked his personality and style as a realtor. He is very relaxed and easy to be around. He always offers insight into the pros and cons of a home without being pushy or judgmental. Once we found a home we wanted to make an offer on, he gave us good advice on how to proceed and how to negotiate. We decided not to agree to the price the first homeowners wanted, but we signed a contract on the second home that we made an offer on, and he smoothed every part of the process from the initial negotiation, to the contract signing, to the deposit. He gave us excellent recommendations for inspectors, and a title company to handle the closing. He also found us a great contractor to do the work that needed to be done after we closed on our home. In addition, several problems arose over the course of our home purchase, and Paul was the one that solved the problems, and they were always problems that came up because of other people's mistakes or issues. He was generous with his time, always explained everything clearly, and by the end of the process I started to feel like he was a friend as well. I would use Paul again in a heartbeat, and have been recommending him to all of my friends and co-workers that are interested in purchasing a home.
No home buying process is issue-free, but ours was as close as possible because of Paul's dedication, experience and support. I am grateful that my husband found Paul online, and that we were so fortunate to work with Paul to purchase our first house.
