Paula is very knowledgeable and worked hard to put me in the best situation possible. She's very patient, as home buying can be stressful. Paula explained every step along the way which was much appreciated.

Paula made herself available to us at all hours, which enabled us to progress through the process more quickly and efficiently. She was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, even going out of her way to uncover important information that helped us in a challenging sale. Paula’s expertise and empathy made an inherently stressful situation less so. We are extremely grateful to Paula for everything. I am not sure this move would have taken place in the end without her efforts on our behalf.
