My fiancé and I had a wonderful experience with Paul. Kept us up to date on new houses that came on the market and always made time for us to see them as quickly as possible. Always kept us informed and lead us in the right direction to finding our very first home. We are extremely pleased with our decision and love our home! ★★★★★
Paul was very knowledgeable and honest about the houses that we saw. Rather than trying to use my inexperience to his advantage, he was straightforward about what options would be best for me and what to look for. Rather than pointing out all the wonderful features of a house in order to get a quick buy, he would point out some of the negative aspects of the homes that I would have overseen, keeping a good look out for me. Very personable and easy to get along with, Paul definitely made sure that the home I ended up with was the perfect one for me.
Paul help us find the perfect house in the perfect location when we moved to the Kalamazoo area a couple years ago. After about two years we had to move again, and Paul helped sell our house. I have never worked with a better realtor! Paul Valentin is so awesome! I wish we had been able to take him with us to Washington to help us find our dream home there. Paul is competent, trustworthy and a good man. ★★★★★
Paul gets things done... We moved from out of town and he helped us find the perfect home and close quickly! He is very helpful, communicates well, knowledgeable of the surrounding area, and savvy with the whole process. I used a VA loan which scares many realtors away. Thanks Paul! ★★★★★
This was our second opportunity to work with Paul. In the spring, he sold a rental home that we owned for us. Then less than six months later, for health reasons we had to leave the home we had lived in for twenty-three years. Paul helped us to sell our two-story home and find a suitable ranch. We could not have made the move without Paul. He kept us energized during the difficult process of getting our home ready to sell. Because we are older, we needed help to get painting and other repairs made. Paul helped us find responsible workers who got our house in great shape for reasonable prices and in a timely manner. Paul also sent us updated listings daily as we searched for a suitable new home. He talked with us at length to discern what we wanted and needed in a home. Paul made what could have been a difficult process for two senior citizens a pleasant experience. We would recommend Paul to our friends and family without hesitation. He is a true professional. ★★★★★
