He has worked with many different clients, from first-time homebuyers looking to find the perfect dream home to build a lifetime of memories, buyers looking to upsize into a larger home to accommodate their growing family, landlords looking to find a qualified tenant for their investment property, as well as homeowners that are looking to sell their home and move onto their next adventure. He has access to many qualified vendors that can help with the buying and selling process, from escrow companies and lenders to licensed contractors and home inspectors. He actively communicates with his clients before, during, and after the buying/selling process to ensure a smooth and successful transaction.
Paul has deep roots in the San Francisco Bay Area and California. He was born and raised in Fremont where his parents still reside, and has previously lived in San Jose, Los Altos, and Cupertino prior to moving to Palo Alto in 2007 where he currently lives with his wife and two children. After graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a B.S. degree and an MBA from Pepperdine University, he worked at several Silicon Valley companies such as Symantec and Saba Software in corporate finance and marketing roles before becoming a licensed Realtor. He has been a past parent volunteer at many of his children’s classrooms, and is currently an active member of the Board of Directors of Palo Alto’s Barron Park Association that promotes community service and improving the quality of life for Barron Park residents. He has personally owned and sold thirteen homes and investment properties throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, so he can understand how a home purchase and sale can be both an emotional decision as well as a financial one.
“My wife and I worked with Paul to purchase our first home, as a first time homebuyer, we were not familiar with the terminology or the best process people to involve. Right away, Paul was incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with my wife and I to determine what would be a good fit for us. He even recommended a lending agent, which we ended up using and greatly appreciated. Paul is very knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient and incredibly generous with his time. He answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in summer 2018 market was very challenging, but working with Paul made it as painless and straightforward as possible. Paul used to provide Comparable Sales numbers and his own assessment for every home before bidding, this tremendously helped us make informed decision. We highly recommend Paul.”

“My family (of 5) recently moved from Boston to Fremont, California. We’d only been in the US for 2 years so things still felt new to us. We couldn’t have asked for better support and partnership from Paul and we were only looking for rentals (which is when you usually get ignored)! He kept our needs and wants in mind when searching for places. He had priceless information of all the areas we were looking at (none of the websites know what he knows)! He was responsive, made himself available at all times and was open and honest throughout the whole process. I couldn’t recommend him any more highly. I hope to be able to work with him to purchase a home one day!”
