Thank you so much for all of the time, effort and hard work you've put in over the past few weeks in helping us buy our first house. From touring houses to walking through paperwork in detail to making the final offer (and closing while we were on vacation!). We really appreciate everything you've done for us. Thanks again. - Chris and Anna
"I would like to express my gratitude to you for your professional assistance and the exceptional job you did in selling my home. I was particularily impressed with your organizational skills and ability to coordinate the inspectors, contractors, and others involved in the work that was done to prepare the home for sale. The fresh coat of paint, new carpet and linoleum, and professional landscaping all had my home looking wonderful. Your repair/ replacement of numerous little items throughout the place attest to your attention to detail. Your marketing plan brought in many prospective buyers, creating a multiple bid situation and a sale price far exceeding my expectations. The house was only on the market for 10 days. Your exemplary service is truly appreciated. - Dr. Michael Risinger
"Ted Paulin sold my house in the fall of 2005. Due to my family circumstances, he had to deal with some particularly challenging negotiations and arrangements. He took all of these in stride and with great diplomacy and good humor. Despite the obstacles, he got my house ready for the market in record time and we sold the property far over asking price. I was thankful to have Teds help and was very pleased wit the job he did. " - Joan W.
"During our search of a dream home, we met several real estate agents. We chose Ted Paulin because he stood out as a smart, competent professional, and more importantly, a caring person who makes the otherwise stressful home buying process a pleasant experience. We'd recommend him to our friends." - Dan & Anna L.
"I write briefly to thank you, on behalf of Lynn and me, for your outstanding work on our behalf in connection with the purchase of our home. Your work was exemplary and I happily refer you to anyone I know who is buying or selling a house in the area. I will tell them that Ted is not simply interested in selling them a house, he wants to help them find a home. We appreciated your willingness to tell us when you thought houses weren't right for us. We appreciated your endless patience when we required multiple trips to make sure the house we bought was right for us. Your local knowledge is without parallel and your willingness to help us find contractors and the like - both before and after our move - has been a huge help in getting us settle in. You're a terrific realtor and a friend and we look forward to working with you again some day. I'd be happy to serve as a reference for anyone considering using you as a realtor in the future." -Brendan C.
"We' re so grateful to have met you and to have had you as our realtor.....and friend" -Ed. W.
"Ted, you did a great job in selling my home. Thanks for a job well done". -B. Larson
"Ted is extremely professional. He is very pleasant to work with, eithical and very knowledgeable of the market. From when we said "sell" to the start of escrow, it was under 4 weeks! If you need to buy or sell a property, I highly recommend Ted Paulin as your agent!" -Dave W.
"I thought Ted was great. We had some challenging selection criteria and he worked well within our guidelines. He was very flexible with our viewing schedule and proactive in researching properties so our time would be well spent. His knowledge of the area and of the market helped with final selection and with closing on the deal. Absolutely will recommend him. - Josh G.
"My wife and I worked with Ted Paulin to find our dream home. We found him to be refreshingly honest when showing us properties, pointing out everything both positive and negative he noticed about a given home; we always felt fully informed before deciding whether to place a bid.
He is also incredibly diligent; he would ask us to send over our favorite homes each week, and by the end of the week he'd viewed each of them and sent us detailed write-ups, allowing us to prioritize our weekend viewings and avoid wasting our time on homes that didn't meet our criteria. He picked up on our tastes quickly, to the point where my wife trusted his instinct more than mine by the end!!
Lastly, he keeps all of the components of the home buying process (and there are a lot!) humming along smoothly. He views himself as the 'captain of your ship': if your lender / insurance agent / whoever is moving to slowly, Ted will be quick to make sure they're on the ball so that your purchase/sale closes on time." - Ryan and Anita D.
"I worked with Ted Paulin at Alain Pinel Realtors both to buy my first home, and then to sell it at a later date. Ted is incredibly hard-working and diligent. When it came to finding my first home, he really took his time to show me all of the available properties in my price range. He was also a great resource when it came to seeing the potential in the homes I viewed. Ted made the process of buying a home as painless as possible.
Three years after purchasing my home, I needed to list my home for sale because I was moving out of the area. Because of how great my home buying experience had been, I immediately called Ted.
Ted helped me to make the necessary changes to my property to guarantee that my home would sell for the best possible price. I received an offer shortly after listing my home, and although there were some complications with the buyer, Ted stayed on top of everything and ensured that my sale closed as quickly as possible.
I very highly recommend Ted Paulin at Alain Pinel Realtors in Palo Alto. I cannot speak to the professionalism of the other people at Alain Pinel, but if they are even half as helpful as Ted was, I know that you will not be disappointed in choosing them for your real estate needs." - Alaina J.
My experience with Ted was excellent. He is indefatigable. His high energy level kept me going on long days of looking at a lot of properties. He unfailingly followed through on his promises, and did so in a timely fashion. He is extremely knowledgeable about both the area and current market conditions.
Even after I closed, Ted was there for me, giving me advice, introducing me to skilled workmen and even moving some furniture that had been put in the wrong place by my movers.
I would recommend Ted highly to anyone looking to sell or buy. -Robin
Ted did excellent work and was very patient with us at a stressful time. I appreciate everything he did for us in getting the house ready for sale and marketing/ selling it. We will definitely recommend him to others. - Brian S.
