I wanted to share my experience
I wanted to share my experience working with Paul. We were actually given a contact by a friend who then referred us to Paul because they were out of town. This ended up being a stroke of luck for us because Paul was the best realtor I have ever dealt with. His list of positive attributes is long but I’d have to say that the main few that stood out to us was his easygoing nature, honesty, responsiveness and ability to see clarity through murky communication. Any real estate transaction can quickly go south with ineffective communication and Paul was a professional at making sure everyone remained on the same page. He often advocated for us in ways that we did not anticipate, however he was also good at making sure we stayed reasonable with our requests and expectations-a quality I now see as important and a true skill of an experienced agent. He has many useful contacts and always urged us to do what was best for us. He was truly at our service and we are forever grateful for the experience. I would urge anyone to work with Paul and I’m happy to directly speak with anyone who may need more information.
I am a Realtor
I am a Realtor in another market, and have worked with Paul both for my own purchases, as well as referring my clients to him. Paul is incredibly attentive and proactive and communicates very well throughout the process. He has an incredible attention to detail and follow up.
Professional and efficent
Honest and professional
The first thing I was looking for in a Realtor was for someone who could represent my interests, honesty and handled themselves professionally. Paul was certainly that person, his advise was sound throughout the entire process with answering my questions and addressing concerns. He communicated often with updates and showings which lead to positive results. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul to family or friends for any home or property purchase !!
Professional and patient
We loved working with Paul ! He is incredibly professional and patient. It took us several months of looking (and a corona virus quarantine) to find the perfect house. Paul was always so helpful without any pressure. He really understood exactly what we were looking for and he did a great job helping us to find it. We couldn't be happier.
First time home byuers
My wife and I were first time buyers. We knew very little about buying a house. A friend of ours referred us to Paul and it couldn't have worked out better. Paul was very patient and listened to what we wanted and needed. Paul went the extra mile for us and we love our home!
I was referred to Paul
I was very fortunate to be referred to Paul. I was looking for a 2nd home and was not familiar with the Nevada City/Gold Country area. After looking at a dozen properties we were able to locate a home that was in my desired area, well within my budget, met all my needs for a vacation retreat. Even during the transaction when a few minor issues came to light, Paul jumped in and assessed the situation to ensure I was in the loop and satisfied. I've purchased 5 homes in 10 years, and this transaction was the most confident, simple and easy ones of my real estate experience. Thank you, Paul, for welcoming me home to Nevada City!
When we began looking for a house
When we began looking for a house, we wanted an agent who is local - someone from the area who knows the area well. Paul Smith is that kind of person. In practice, he shows a lot of professionalism and concern for the needs of his clients. Throughout our transaction, he demonstrated that he is very conscientious, supports and valued his clients, and is always available to answer any questions or concerns. Finally, Paul has a personal touch that makes his clients feel important. He communicates important information, looks out for his clients when he negotiates on their behalf, and even continues helping his clients after the transaction closes. In general, I couldn’t recommend Paul Smith more; anybody would be very happy having Paul represent them when buying a property.
