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.

"Paul Lopez was more than helpful in finding us an apartment in California. He was sincere, upfront, and was able to find me a great apartment that fit right in my price range! He was always highly communicative and easy to reach to answer any of my questions. Paul Lopez is terrific to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. He cares about his clients as well. Wow! Made buying a house such a breeze! Paul explained everything easy to understand, from making the offer to working with the mortgage banker. This made it easy to move into California in less than three months. Thank you Paul :)"

"Paul has been a perfect combination of friendly and professional throughout the entire home buying process. I am a first time home buyer and Paul answered every question I had; he responded promptly to every text and called me often to keep me updated. He was patient as I looked at a number of different houses and once I decided on a place he was a great negotiator. I got the home I wanted for less than the asking price and did so within days. The best thing I can say about Paul is he did not stop there. He was just as present and helpful during the entire paperwork process; calling me with updates and explaining everything I was asked to sign. My home buying experience would not have been as successful or as stress free if it were not for Paul. I highly recommend him!"

"My Wife and I would like to give a huge Thank You to Paul Lopez for all of his hard work and professional expertise he showed us. Being a first time home buyer is a scary undertaking in itself. We did not know what to expect and what to do. Paul was able to in a sense, hold our hands and make us feel very comfortable as well as taken care of. Paul worked very hard for us and really seemed to have our best interests at heart. We have already and will continue to recommend Paul Lopez and Century 21 Real Estate to our friends and family. Once again, Thank You to Paul and all who were involved in making my wife's and our families dream a reality."
