We are from Indiana and came down to Punta Gorda to look for our first home, with very limited time to do so. We had an appointment set up with another realtor before we came down to view homes, but when it came time for our appointment we ran into several issues with that realtor. With only a few days to view homes, we needed to find someone who could show us options ASAP. That’s when we found Paul and Kim and we could not have been more lucky! The very same day we called, they were able to show us 2 homes and set up several more viewing appointments for the next day. On day 2 with Paul and Kim, we found a home we loved and put in an offer. From that point on, we worked with both Paul and Kim to help make our dream a reality. From day 1 to closing day they kept in constant communication with us, our lender, and the other party’s realtor and answered all of our questions during the process (day and night and even over Memorial Day weekend/Memorial Day). If you’re looking for realtors that actually listen to you, advocate for you, and are there to guide you through your home buying or selling process, I HIGHLY recommend this team of realtors! Because of Paul and Kim, we are now living in our first (and hopefully forever) home and could not be happier!
Paul has been in and around real estate for many years which was super comforting being a 1st-time homebuyer. The entire time we were looking at houses, Paul was like a caring fatherly figure not pushing or pulling us in a certain way, but working with us to find our needs, wants, and desires. At no point during the process did it seem to be about the sale for Paul, but rather about making our first-time experience memorable, fun, enjoyable, and as simple as possible. I would highly recommend working with Paul if you are planning on buying or selling a home, he works for you, and with you, quickly and effectively, making sure you get what you want and when you need it by.
We have bought and sold several houses with him, and each time he continues to exceed our expectations! We sold a house with him in the spring of 2016, and even though we were in the middle of moving out of state, the process was completely stress-free. Paul took care of all the details for us, seeing us expertly through the home inspection process and all the way to the final closing. I would use Paul EVERY TIME!
My husband and I had two different houses we were looking for (but needed in one house)! Paul managed to find exactly what we both wanted. He was always available via phone or email during our purchase (& our hunt ). Was great as a go-between with the sellers. Stayed on top of everything, and was very patient with both of us, during our house hunt, and our eventual purchase. Highly, highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for property.
We had an amazing Real Estate Agent that stuck with us for years! He listened to what we wanted and never tried to push us into a house we weren't sure about, he met us to look at properties at crazy times and often several in a day even with no notice! He was always honest and never gave up on us... even after 6 years of looking! We are so happy to have had Paul Hicks as our agent and even happier to have him as our friend now that we are done looking! If anyone out there is looking to buy or sell, Paul Hicks is the right guy to call. Forgot to mention that he sold a property for us that was a difficult property to sell! Check him out in my friends list or PM me for his number, he is amazing!!!
In the 53 years, I have bought and sold seven homes I have never met anyone who exemplified the high standard of professionalism, honesty, integrity, and caring for a client as I have experienced with Paul. He went out of his way to make sure I was always aware of every detail of negotiations, and my options and I always trusted he had my best interests in mind. He made the arduous process of showing and selling my home stress-free as such an endeavor can be always available to answer questions and give positive assurances regarding the often frustrating and tiring experience. He has an excellent eye for how to appropriately stage a home which only adds to his amazing skills as a videographer and his ability to use every available media outlet to advertise the home. My experience with Paul and his partner, Kim, was nothing short of exemplary and I can’t sufficiently use words to express my gratitude and recommendation.
My husband and I recently decided to look for a new house. We met Paul Hicks at an open house and instantly felt very comfortable around him. We decided to use him as our Realtor. For no specific reason, we decided to start looking in the middle of winter. Paul was always ready to take us to see any house that caught our interest, even in bad snowstorms and frigid weather. Throughout the process, we came to trust Paul. He would educate us on different things in the homes we saw. Some of the potential problems, we would have missed, but Paul was on top of these things and made us aware of them. I feel he was not just in it for the sale, but was there to help us find a good, solid home that fit our needs. I am happy to say that we found a house and with the help of Paul Hicks, are very happy with the one we chose. Paul was always very polite, very professional, and has an easy, light-hearted nature about him. I would recommend him to any friend or family member. I recommend him to you!
