perspective + pro's and con's
Paul helped my husband and I navigate our Central Austin home buying process, which happily ended with us closing on a wonderful house last week. Despite stepping into the house hunting frenzy just as it became a seller's market with multiple offers, bidding wars, and homes selling before they officially hit the MLS, we still managed to enjoy the overall experience. We give most of the credit to Paul because he understood our needs and wants pretty much immediately, was proactive about scoping good listings for us, has such depth of knowledge about the area that he could set the context and speak to the ins-and-outs of each neighborhood we considered, offered his perspective on the pros/cons of each property (without us ever feeling pressured to make decisions based on his opinion), and reminded us that things would unfold as they should. He was generous with his time, speedy with his responses to any questions we posed via email or phone, and just an all-around great guy. After a false start with another realtor, we realized just how important it is to like spending time with your broker because you tool around town and negotiate the biggest purchase of your life with him. Oh, did I mention that Paul's expertise also saved us thousands of dollars in maintenance issues with the house we picked? He encouraged us to spring for a plumbing inspection given the age of our home, and - lo and behold - unearthed a very costly leak that the sellers ended up covering. We love Paul and would wholeheartedly recommend him for real estate transactions in Central Austin
Excellent Devil's Advocate
I just closed on a house this week with Paul as my realtor. As I read the other stellar reviews on here, I wondered if I needed to add yet another 5-star review to the pile. I would be remiss to not sing Paul's praises though.
When I decided to buy a house, I was thinking "I need a warm body to let me into the homes I want to see". My previous experience with realtors here and in other cities seemed to suggest that realtors didn't actually bring much to the table. And then I met Paul. Not only is he Austin-savvy, but that man can answer emails at lightening speed! He is an excellent devil's advocate and will help you gauge a negotiating situation from all angles. I have a somewhat busy schedule but Paul was happy to accommodate it and take me out to see homes when I had time.
Paul does a tremendous job of being professional while also being warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. What's more is that his passion for helping people find their homes really shines through. By the time you've finished working with Paul, you'll want him as a friend too.
Paul is an absolute Saint. He will more than go the extra mile for you. He worked directly with my daughter and took care of her like she was his own. We worked via technology from out of state and it could not have been a better or easier process. He was attentive, responsive, professional, dedicated and a superb representative of the real estate profession. Your absolute best bet in the Austin, TX area.
Paul said YES
Paul is not one of those part-time realtors that gives you a less-than-pro impression. He knows his stuff and the service he delivers is top-notch. He included a super-professional staging process to get the house ready for sale.
I had several realtor friends that I had to say "no" to when they wanted to sell my house. I was that confident and comfortable with Paul.
He's very personable, friendly, and easy to work with. No pushy service, very honest, and he tells it like it is. He took his time with me, and put some time and work into me, even when it wasn't clear whether I was going to sell my house or not. But his work gave me the proper foundation from which to base my decision to sell or not in a bad market.
All said and done I was able to fulfill my dream of moving to S. America for a couple of years, when everything within the housing market was telling me no. Paul was saying YES! Thank you Paul.
Always very truthful and honest about his opinions regarding the home’s value
Paul worked tirelessly and couldn’t have been more dedicated to seeing my wife and I purchase the first home of our dreams. During the process I would find a potential home, give him a call, and most times that same day he would meet us at the house and show us around. He was always very truthful and honest about his opinions regarding the home’s value while keeping our desires in consideration. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to make a wise investment in both a home and a friendship.
Energetic without crossing into crazy broker speak
Paul Reddam and Homesville have helped me sell one home and buy two others in the last two years. He is about to put another on the market for me and I chose him again because of the last sale’s success and how easy he is to work with during the whole process. Paul is energetic without crossing into crazy broker speak and honest about what I need to do as a client. He is the first broker that I have used more then once because he as made my life easier when dealing with real estate.
Kept us from making some serious mistakes
My wife and I were ready to buy and settle down in Austin; one of the best decision we made was to take our friends advice and call Paul Reddam. He took us through the whole process from start to finish and had the patients to find out what we really wanted. Didn't rush us, and even slowed us down in some instances where we got a little too excited, and he kept us from making some serious mistakes. Driving around the neighborhoods of Austin with Paul will make you feel so at ease, and as a local, he can give you first hand knowledge of the city because he grew up here. Paul will make sure when its time for you to make that important decision, it will be a well informed one. And when you see him at the negotiation table, you will be very glad he's on your side. I look forward to calling him if were ever ready to sell. Thanks Paul - Chris Meyer and Diana Soliz bought
Knowledgeable, ethical and a good person at the end of the day.
We have used Paul Reddam and Homesville for multiple home purchases over the last several years in Central Austin. My husband and I are in the law and architecture fields, and we consider ourselves generally knowledgeable about Austin real estate. We have been very impressed with Paul's knowledge of the market, as well as his understanding of his client's wants and needs. And perhaps most importantly, we feel we can TRUST Paul to advocate for our best interests in every situation. We have found that it is invaluable to have a broker who is not only knowledgeable, but who is ethical and a good person at the end of the day. We know Paul to be that person, and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Austin.
Paul is fabulous
Paul is fabulous! He is very knowledgeable on the Austin area, on market trends, and helps you balance wants vs. need along with budget and location ~ which we found could all be overwhelming together for our first home purchase and when purchasing such large investment.
I'd highly recommend Paul. We consider him a friend and will absolutely use him again in the future!
To say that he is a full service professional would be putting it mildly
I have known Paul for nearly two years. He is constantly tweaking and improving his service for those he serves in the neighborhood. To say that he is a full service professional would be putting it mildly. If he doesn’t think it is the right time to put your house on the market he will tell you. His marketing plan is outstanding. I highly recommend Paul and Homesville
