A focused listener, able advisor and fierce yet fair advocate, Paula is known for her intuition and diligence while employing encouragement and genuine concern as she creates a positive experience for both sides in any property transaction. Her business approach is direct and successful: she listens to the client’s needs and matches them to the right property, then assures an honest and efficient transaction.
Paula obtained her real estate license in the late 80’s, and then her broker’s license a few years later when she worked in Mortgage Lending, becoming very knowledgeable in what to expect when purchasing a home. She has taught real estate courses, trained new and seasoned agents, and recruited and mentored new agents.
Paula often refers to herself as a “contract geek,” as she believes that protecting her clients’ rights is of utmost importance. Certainly she enjoys the excitement of showing homes, however she believes that her real job begins when the paperwork comes out. Her combination of education, experience, and training has helped her to provide the best service and expertise for not only marketing and finding homes, but for also a smooth transaction.
Paula was raised in Crestline, a small mountain community in Southern California. Prior to moving to San Diego County in 2005, Paula earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of California Riverside, and earned her MBA from California State University San Bernardino. She enjoys watching and learning tennis and golf, but would likely trade both for a good chocolate bar. Her love of travel stems from her year-long experience as a foreign exchange student to Hamburg, Germany, and since then her travels have taken her to Europe, South America, Asia and throughout the U.S. She is always anxious to dust off her passport or fuel up the car to head off on a new adventure. She also enjoys spending time with her husband (who does double duty as her tennis and golf coach), two wonderful stepkids, parents, and a fantastic family of in-laws.
Whether buying or selling, Paula will provide you the special attention one expects of a dedicated real estate professional. She is praised most often by clients for her enthusiasm, attention to detail, patient approach and unwavering loyalty.
