Testimonials

Teresa & Gary A., Long-Time Clients
"Paula has refinanced several homes for us, as well as represented us as buyer and seller in other transactions. She sticks to us like glue, every step of the way, even when we are difficult and demanding. We always receive competitive rates and she connects us with reliable lenders. After several years of dealing with her, whenever we have any real estate needs, we continue to contact Paula, because she is competent and efficient, but mostly because we trust her."

Richard W. G., 1031 Exchange Investor
"I recently sold a rental property and purchased another property for rental use, more commonly known by the IRS as a 1031 exchange. The 1031 rules can be difficult to follow and you need to be on top of your game to meet the stringent requirements. Paula Swanson met and exceeded my expectations and I would use her in an instant for my next real estate transaction.

Paula accepted the 1031 exchange challenge and the details, wording and timing of each rule and kept me informed throughout the process. I personally find these kind of transactions stressful, but thanks to a dedicated professional, Paula Swanson made this entire transaction a pleasure. She was there with every answer and guided me to a successful completion.

Thank you Paula"


John & Elaina S., Relocation
"Paula Swanson is simply the BEST real estate broker we have had the experience of working with. We have bought and sold 12 homes in our lifetime and most experiences have been less than favorable. With Paula, everything came together perfectly and her communication and effort was excellent. The preceding paragraph will give some insight to why we highly recommend her services.

On Dec. 2013, an opportunity to relocate to Paso Robles was finalized and our house was listed by Paula. Our ideal move out date was after our twins graduated from high school in June of 2014. During this time we had many prospective buyers and Paula followed up by calling the buyers realtors and relayed the information to us. She advised to maintain our asking price (which was fair), and the right buyers came along, that allowed us to move directly from our home in Camarillo to Paso Robles. We received our asking price and Paula worked with our Title Company and Realtor in Paso to "fast track" a 28 day escrow. There is no doubt in our mind that without Paula's daily efforts, all this would not have happened. We hope someday Paula and her husband will move to Paso just in case we need to buy or sell again."

Larry O., Camarillo Homeowner
"After making the decision to try and sell our home, we were a bit disheartened and not sure what direction to take. Paula came strongly recommended.

Paula is very knowledgeable in the real estate marketplace. Her honesty and integrity were exposed. Paula represented our home on a professional level. As it turned out, that was an understatement. Paula is not only professional, she is hardworking and willing to make the upfront investment to come onto the market with a splash. She knows how to stage and represent a home. Paula is very respectful of the effort it takes on the part of a homeowner. She takes the time to thoroughly qualify any perspective buyer to assure a good match. After multiple offers and explaining to us the importance of each offer, we sold our home in 2 days.

Paula, you are a true professional. This entire experience could have been overwhelming, but you walked us through every step of the way from selling our home, believing in us, our vision for a new home and all the business details in between. Your expertise in this field is outstanding and your patience is commendable.

Thank you taking care of us Paula Swanson!"


The M. Family, First-Time VA Homebuyers
"Kelly and I first met Paula in 2009 to discuss buying our first home. We were quickly given some up front information about our options and buying power in a devastated real estate market. We took some time to absorb her advice and contemplate this mountainous task!

In March of 2010 we contacted Paula once again and after a review of our financial status, we were off looking for our first home. Being a military family and wanting to use a VA loan, she made us aware of all the pros and cons and guided us every step of the way. In July of 2010 Kelly and I were moving into our first home!

In 2011 we once again contacted Paula Swanson to take advantage of the low interest rates and the VA Rate Reduction Program. Paula quickly looked into all of the available programs and before we knew it we had refinanced to a lower rate.

Like a true family oriented lifelong friend, she once again came through when we noticed that the market was on the rise and began the process of refinancing for debt consolidation/or payoff. With Paula's vast knowledge of the market she was able to walk us through the appraisal process and we were amazed to find out we were able to pay off all of our unsecured debt!

Paula Swanson is a true professional! Her understanding of the market is invaluable, not to mention her ability to understand her clients and what they want. Many times, we as homebuyers, can be a bit choosy with what we want and Paula, not only understands that, but embraces it. If you have never bought a home and are pondering the decision, or if you had a bad experience with other agents, pick up the phone and call Paula Swanson."

In closing I must say Paula will work as fast as you do. If you are a procrastinator, she will remind you, however, a lot of the process relies on us, the client, to get things rolling. That being said, when the ball is in her court she will keep it moving! If you are looking for an Agent to assist in Refinancing, or First Time Home Buying, look no further! Paula Swanson will be a friend of the family in no time at all.

Thank you Paula for all you have done, as we will continue to call upon you for any of our future real estate needs!"
