Broker Associate / REALTOR
Tracy, CA 95376
Home sellers and buyers want relationship-building, strategic planning and tough negotiation from the real estate agent they select. Since 2001, I have brought these strengths to my clients and learned a lot about the industry. These big transactions can be an emotional process, and clients are happy to report that I bring the calmness and clarity needed to help them make the best decisions.
I've helped first-time home buyers and move-up buyers looking for their forever home. I have helped retirees, divorcees and investment buyers, and found a way to bring order to the chaos in every situation. I believe in taking the extra time up front to understand the whole family's needs before creating a plan. Equally important, I'm aligned with a like-minded team that includes inspectors, lenders and title professionals who ensure the process is efficient and painless.
Experience has been a great teacher:
- Originally from San Jose, California, I also spent several years in Livermore before moving to the Central Valley in 1998.
- I entered the real estate industry in 2001, starting my career with a loan and savings institution where I called on lending brokers and homeowners. Lending was an excellent fit, and I quickly advanced to become a top producing agent. I then advanced to mortgage broker and built a top producing team.
- In 2005, I opened my own brokerage offering lending and real estate services. I also began to attract investors as a part of my clientele selling real estate through finance. After the major economic breakdown in 2008, like many professionals, I chose to focus solely on one thing, and it was real estate. The bottom line is that I understand how to get to the bottom line. Knowing how finance and real estate work hand in hand has brought great benefits to homeowners who have worked with me.
I truly love the team I've developed and enjoy helping buyers and sellers navigate through the highs and lows on the way to their real estate goals. I get to know each person and their unique needs and communicate with honesty and clarity. I analyze details and visualize every home through the buyer's eyes to make sure the strategic plan is set up for success. I then work diligently to make sure you don't leave anything on the table when you sell, or get the best price when you buy.
This is what I work for and this is what I live for.

"I came to Paul with urgency. I was given a 60-day notice to move out of the house I had been renting for 8 years because the owner was selling it. Paul connected me with the right lender who was able to get me pre approved. In less than 1 week Paul had submitted an offer and it was accepted. We closed escrow in 28 days. Paul and his team of professionals are knowledgeable and personable. After the close of escrow, Paul has followed up with me to see how everything has been going with the new house. Paul and Lauren always answered my calls, texts, and emails fast. When I wanted to see a home they scheduled a showing for me immediately. If you are looking for someone who is aggressive with getting the job done and understands urgency in this real estate market look no further"
-T. Evanson, Client
"Paul is very professional and knowledgeable about the local market. He helped me sell my house. He closed the deal within 30 days. I was very impressed. His assistant Lauren, was very helpful and responsive to my inquiries and needs. Lauren is definitely an asset to Paul and his organization. I had a great experience working with both of them. Thanks again Paul and Lauren for all your hard work. I'm looking forward to working with you in the future."
-F. Castuera, Client
"My family used Paul to sell our long time family home. He is very professional, knowledgeable, patient, and kind. What could have been a difficult process, was made so much easier due to his commitment and willingness to work with our family every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home"
-Livermore Seller, Client
"How FAST do you want to sell your home? Paul had an offer the day ours went on the market (Thursday) but we had scheduled an open house for the weekend so we held that event. 11 offers... ALL over the asking price. We actually went from on the market to transfer of ownership in about 42 total days with no hiccups. Great job Paul!"
-S. Olsen, Client
"I would recommend Paul because he delivers what he promises and he is distinguishable from others because of his honesty. He respects all members of my family and his integrity defines his character. "
