"I have worked with a number of realtors over the years, many of whom I found to be unresponsive, lacking sufficient energy and interest, or otherwise being subpar. I am pleased to say that, in contrast, Paula proved to go above and beyond even my high expectations and standards: she not only was responsive and easy to work with, but clearly knew the market and provided us with terrific advice in terms of what we needed to do to make our home of 33 years as marketable as possible. That we ultimately received 3 offers in 3 days that led to a bidding war which resulted in our getting more than our asking price in a lackluster market is the ultimate testimony as to just how good Paula is. In addition to having high energy and good taste, Paula also happens to be a very nice person and just a pleasure to work with. On a scale of 1 to 5, I'd award her a 10!"
Tom (West Hartford, CT)

"Paula was honest, straight forward, and realistic when representing us as sellers. Not only was she knowledgable about how to price a house, she also knew what buyers were looking for and how best to present and market our house to sell quickly, which it did.
Leslie St. Amant (West Hartford, CT)

"We loved working with Paula. She helped us find our current home and sell our previous home. She gave us sound advice throughout the process and was always happy to answer any questions that came up. You can't go wrong working with Paula - we highly, highly recommend her.
Joao & Danica Delgado"
Joao & Danica Delgado (West Hartford, CT)

"Paula is wonderful. She spent six months helping us search for and find our dream home. Her upbeat attitude and patience was imperative in keeping us sane during a very stressful time. She helped keep us focused, while still exploring all options during our house hunt. We are so grateful to finally be in the home of our dreams, thanks to Paula!
Melissa & Dave McCullough (West Hartford, CT)

"Paula is outstanding! She negotiated an amazing contract for us on our dream home. She made the process extremely smooth, she was not afraid to ask for anything, and she was organized and very responsive. We immediately gravitated towards Paula because of her genuine, honest personality and patience. As new homeowners, she guided us through the process with grace and she will undoubtably be recommended to all of our friends and family. There is no question - Paula is the best around
Alex Foley & Matt Turner (West Hartford)

Paula has exceeded every expectation we could have had about a realtor. She was never too busy to answer even the silliest of questions. We started working with Paula to buy a newer pre-existing home. When nothing was really meeting our criteria she actually found us a very rare opportunity to get into an in progress spec home being built in a town where new construction is unthinkable. It was obviously a process totally foreign to us and she was able to walk us through the entire process with comfort and ease. Her knowledge of the local markets and her ability to negotiate was the icing on the cake. I would never think twice about referring Paula to family and friends - nevermind a stranger. If you want as stress-free of a buying (or selling) of a home you've found your realtor!!! We are now in our beautiful new home and still pinch ourselves that she was able to help us make it happen!!

Melissa (West Hartford)

"Paula was honest, straight forward, and realistic when representing us as sellers. Not only was she knowledgable about how to price a house, she also knew what buyers were looking for and how best to present and market our house to sell quickly, which it did.

Her knowledge of the market enabled us to competitively price the house for buyers while making us feel comfortable with a selling price with margin.

Paula is well versed in designing and staging an area to make it more inviting and welcoming. Whether it was a small task or large task she was willing to assist wherever possible.

Her negotiation skills are such that she knows when to push, when to refrain, and when to revisit a number or details without offending the parties involved. In this day and age that is a rare quality.

If I was moving to CT all over again, I'd definitely want Paula in my corner."
leslie (West hartford)

"Paula helped us purchase our first home in West Hartford and was wonderful! She was always readily available and answered every silly question I came up - she was so patient. We really get she had our best interest at heart and as a result we found the perfect home. I highly recommend her!"
Sarah (West Hartford)

"We knew Paula was the perfect fit for us from the start - friendly and down to earth, yet professional. She was very responsive and accessible throughout, and even stayed in touch while on vacation. We appreciated her insight and honesty and always felt like she was looking out for us. Highly recommend her!

Tamara Dominick (West Hartford)

"Could not have had a better agent. Great knowledge of the home buying process! 
Took care of any issues immediately. Worked well with all the home inspectors, 
attorneys and loan officers. Went out of her way to help make the process as easy as possible. I would recommend her to anyone purchasing or selling a house. I would have never have made it through this process without her. She was amazing.

Paul Ripper (Farmington)

"Paula helped my husband and I find our home in Avon. She was fantastic to work with every step of the way. She gave us valuable and honest advice; I trusted her judgment to help us make decisions. She was constantly available and really made our experience as easy as possible.

Liz Richard (Avon)

"Paula was our agent when we sold out townhouse in Bloomfield and bought a house in West Hartford. We were very happy with her. Paula was very responsive, knowledgeable and easy to work with. She did not pressure us in any way and let us make our own decisions. If we did want advice however, she was ready to give it. Paula was very committed to making sure our sale and purchase went smoothly and went above the call of duty. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent in the Greater Hartford area.
Yelena & Brian Pelletier (West Hartford)

"Paula helped our organization sell two properties in a year, each property selling in less than 6 months. With her expertise, responsiveness and follow through, we'd would hire her again in a heartbeat.

Leslie Jones (Hartford & Bloomfield)

"I truly enjoyed working with Paula during our house hunting process. I was a first time homebuyer and very nervous/excited about the process. Paula answered every question we had, no matter how silly. She also provided addtional details, and went above and beyond with any questions/concerns we had. I would definitely recommend Paula as a real estate agent to anyone who is in the market to buy a home. Thanks again Paula!!

Olivia Kasak (West Hartford)

"Paula was great to work with throughout the whole selling process. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the Greater Hartford area. Her knowledge and expertise is unmatched and we can't thank her enough.
Scott & Erin Dolch (West Hartford)

"Paula helped us sell our house in a week! She worked tirelessly to get us a quick sale because she knew we needed to sell ours fast in order to buy the house we wanted.
She is responsive, smart, knows the market, knows the other agents, and is an incredible representative for her clients. While I hope to be in my new house for many, many years, I know I would use her again in a heartbeat if we ever needed to sell again!

Jen Gallagher (West Hartford)

"Paula's energy, kindness, and integrity made an out of state move painless and joy-filled. She is knowledgeable and dedicated. I can't recommend her enough!
Elizabeth Small (West Hartford)

"Paula is amazing. In addition to being extremely pleasant and patient, she knows this market better than anyone. She helped us buy our house in a competitive market in a desirable neighborhood. We never would have gotten it without her. Thank you, Paula!

Jonathan Small (West Hartford)

"Paula was a wonderful colleague in helping to sell our corporate offices, a turn of the 20th century mansion in the West End of Hartford. She nurtured many fine prospective buyers and helped us close the deal in a timely and professional manner. Paula is a great agent.

Bishop Ian Douglas (Hartford)

"My wife and I couldn't be happier with the representation Paula gave us. Our home was in a tough location and we had tried two previous times to sell without any success. Paula gave us a new marketing strategy and new insight into how we could position our property. We were on the market less than thirty days before we went under contract, which lead to the sale. Paula also represented us throughout the buying process on our next home as well. Despite the fact she had other properties, she always made us feel like our house was the focus. Throughout the entire process Paula kept us informed and made herself available whenever we asked and on the off chance she was not able to help us, made arrangements for other members of her agency to meet us. Overall our experience with Paula was top notch and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell."
Ryan McDonald (Southington)

Our family relocated from Indianapolis to Wethersfield, CT. We had never been to CT before, so Paula's familiarity with area's around Hartford was helpful. Paula is knowledgeable of the entire selling process, has excellent contacts (mortgage agents, attorneys, painters, handymen, flooring contacts, etc.), and is reliable. She is also very friendly to work with. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent.
Chris & Karol Craig (Wethersfield)

"Paula helped my husband and I find the perfect home in West Hartford. First off, she is incredibly easy to talk to and work with. She is helpful and responsive - texting responses when I'd email her late at night or getting right back in touch when a new home came on the market that we wanted to see that day. Second, she knows West Hartford incredibly well. This is due to her living and working in town for many years. We were moving from another part of the state and didn't know the characteristics of various neighborhoods. Having Paula's knowledge was invaluable. Also, if she didn't know a neighborhood that well, she knew someone who did and always was able to get answers to our questions.
Third, she is highly skilled in negotiation and reading what's happening behind the scenes in an offer situation. This helped us navigate the surprisingly competitive West Hartford market, and come out with a home below asking price. I can't recommend Paula enough! We will be using her if we ever need to find another home in this area.
Stephen & Julia Pon (West Hartford)

"As first time homebuyers, we really enjoyed working with Paula. She was very patient with us and understood what we were looking for. She responded to our calls and e-mails quickly and made sure our offers were placed as soon as possible. Paula's knowledge of West Hartford and homes in general was very impressive. We would definitely use Paula again in the future and highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Ryan Fayed (West Hartford)

"Paula helped us sell our home and handled the purchase of our new residence. The market as most people know is active in certian segments and this applied in our case. She sold our home in less than 2 weeks with a short window for a closing date. Because of this we had to move quickly to find a new place to live but we did not want to just settle for a place that might work. She was patient and helpful in what was a stressful situation. We found a great place and love where we are. We would recommend Paula, give her a call.

Ed Lehan (Farmington & Southington)

"Paula was the perfect agent for us!! As first time home buyers we had soooo many questions and Paula was able to answer all of them without hesitation. She definitely knows every aspect about the real estate game. There were many qualities in Paula that stood out, but the best quality in Paula (being first time buyers) was that she was available 24/7, no matter what time. She seemed to know what we would like in a house and we ended up in a perfect first home. I would highly recommend Paula to anyone looking to buy or sell!!!

Samantha & Anthony (Farmingto)

Paula is by far not only the hardest working but SMARTEST working agent I have encountered. With a tenacious work ethic she is very diligent in making sure all her clients needs are measured and met.

Barbara (West Hartford)

"We met Paula at an open house and were immediately taken by her friendly demeanor and personality. She clearly had a solid understanding of the real estate game. When we finally made an offer on a home, she tactfully negotiated a significantly lower price that was critical for us to close the deal. We used Paula to sell our existing home as well. She did a wonderful job in telling us best ways to stage our home. It was quite a bit of work but we're glad we listened to her as our home sold in one day for $16k over asking. Paula makes you feel like part of her family with the level of personal investment she makes in your buying and selling endeavors. I would highly recommend Paula to anyone buying and/or selling a home.

Claire Hearn (West Hartford)

"Paula is professional, kind and courteous. She knows real estate inside and out, and she uses that knowledge every step of the process. Paula got me in the perfect house at the best price. 5 stars.... Highly Recommend
