"When searching for a broker to help sell, rent or buy a space, I highly recommend Paul Dawson his team at Compass. I have worked with Paul both as a buyer and as a renter, and both experiences were outstanding. Paul's knowledge and insight of Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights and my building, specifically led me to seek him out as my broker. He provided the necessary information for me to understand current market climates, activity and comps to then level-set expectations. He actively listens, questions and engages until the client's goals (i.e. mine) are clear, and then proposes an execution strategy. Regarding demeanor: Paul and team are incredibly friendly, helpful, responsive and efficient with strong follow-up skills. And Paul is STRONG with sales: in addition to the constant flow of viewings, he was FAST - my listing was in contract within 10 days of posting at a higher value than originally listed.
I am extremely pleased with the experience of working with Paul and team, and recommend him to anyone looking for a great, results-driven broker." - Jin

From the moment we reached out to Paul, he displayed a genuine warmth and eagerness to assist us. He promptly responded to our emails and text messages, ensuring that we felt supported every step of the way. Paul's informative nature and willingness to accommodate our needs made a significant difference in our decision-making process. He provided us with honest insights and thorough virtual tours of the apartment, leaving no stone unturned and instilling in us a sense of trust and excitement for our new living space.

Paul's dedication extended beyond just the apartment itself. He took the time to familiarize us with the surrounding area, offering valuable information about local activities, recommended restaurants, and even the best routes to catch the subway for our commutes. His attention to detail and wealth of knowledge truly went above and beyond our expectations. We felt not only supported in finding a place to live, but also welcomed into a vibrant and thriving community.

Once we made the decision to proceed with the application, Diana Kim seamlessly guided us through the necessary steps, making the process unbelievably easy and stress-free. She promptly answered all of our questions, ensuring that we were well-informed and comfortable throughout the lease signing process. Diana's responsiveness and assistance in handling all the required documents electronically made everything incredibly efficient, further showcasing the excellent service we received from Compass.

"I have known Paul for over 10 years. He has consistently offered sound advice regarding my home and the housing market. Paul has continually helped me manage a rental property, though he was never compensated to do so. He was simply very sincerely happy to help, as crazy as that sounds. If a tenant had questions or were having trouble in the apartment, Paul would respond to those requests, ensuring I was not ever troubled.

Most recently, I decided to update the home with new windows. Paul met with the contractor multiple times and even supervised the installation to make certain it was done properly. Paul genuinely cares about the people and properties he works with, which is why I have trusted him and worked with him for over a decade." - Alice
