I had a wonderful experience working with Paul for my home purchase in the
Paul was referred to me when I was relocating to the Bay Area.
After interviewing several Realtors, I chose to work with him because he took
the time to really listen to me and to understand what I was looking for in a
home. He also asked very astute questions about my lifestyle, home
preferences and the type of community environment I was looking for.
And he nailed it! I
ended up purchasing the first home that Paul showed me!
knows Bay Area real estate as well as the purchasing process. He was a
knowledgeable advisor every step of the way. He willingly answered all my
many questions and was enthusiastic and energetic through the entire process.
I felt like he was really working for ME.
I love my new home and my
neighborhood! If you are looking for a REALTOR who will work hard for you, I
highly recommend Paul!
I wanted a professional design consultation for my home.
I had lived in it a couple of years but the layout proved a design challenge
for me. I wanted the house to feel homey yet with a modern feel. An associate
recommended Paul. We hit it off right way. Paul's easy-going personality and
has great sense of humor made me instantly feel at ease. He patiently listed
to my likes and looked at the numerous pictures I had pulled together to
explain what I wanted. He quickly understood what I was looking for and
pulled together some fantastic design ideas with furniture, color, and art.
With his help (and contacts) I was able to implement them quickly and easily.
I highly recommend Paul his sense of style, color, and flow are next to none.
Paul sold our second home and was our Realtor for the purchase of our 4th
home when we returned to the bay area. His services have been nothing short
of stellar. He was consistently able to meet our needs, show us homes that
fulfilled our criteria, and guide us through the ulcer inducing process of
both selling a house and buying a new home. We have kept in touch due to the
simple pleasure of his company, wit and wisdom.
As a first time buyer without much experience or time, Paul went
above and beyond to get us the house we wanted, and did it on the first try.
Throughout the process he was very attentive and made sure no detail slipped
through the cracks. We're very happy with our new home and, without Paul,
we'd probably still be looking.
A great way to sell a home!
Sad circumstances led us to selling a home - something
none of us had even done before. I've known Paul for years, and so without
any contacts or experience in real estate, we turned to him. He came in, sat
and talked with us and pushed the project thru with fairness and heart. We
actually had bids before the first open house, and ended selling it within
weeks of listing.
I can't say enough good things about Pauls' work ethic, his attention to
detail and his gentle nudging to get things done. LOL. But honestly it was
his kindness and compassion that really sealed the deal.
As first-time home buyers we needed a lot of help understanding the process.
Paul was there to help and explain every step. He fought to get us a
bank-owned house that had other offers. We wouldn't have gotten it without
him. I was so appreciative of the hard work he put in to get our offer
accepted. Not to mention his patience in dealing with a completely real
estate ignorant couple.
He also referred us to a mortgage broker that worked to
get us a low interest rate.
We refer Paul to all our friends looking in the East Bay
and we will definitely go back to him in the future.
Paul played a pivotal role in helping us sell our home in May 2010. My
husband and I were nervous about selling our home in this uncertain market.
Paul's years of experience and knowledge in real estate was evident in the
way that he prepared and marketed our home for sale. His attention to detail,
suggestions and advice were greatly appreciated. The bottom line was that our
home got multiple offers and sold before we had our first open house!
highly recommend Paul, and look forward to working with him again soon.
Paul sold was of great assistance to my sisters and I in selling our parents
house as an estate sale.
Needless to say it was a tough time that Paul was
wonderful in staging the house, working out appointments, working up web site
and flyers. I you need a REALTOR who will do more than stick a sign in the
lawn and add in the paper Paul is your Man.Thanks Paul!
realtor. This was my first time ever purchasing a me. Paul was amazing!
He was a true advocate as I went the negotiations, inspections, mortgage to
closing. I heard that purchasing a home was nerve wracking. For me, it
was a smooth transaction. Mostly due to Paul. He also referred me to a great
mortgage broker and I received a great interest rate.

about Paul's services!
If Paul Di Leo
could sell our house as quickly as he did recently, he can sell any house!
We had; what Paul delicately referred to as "deferred maintenance"
and lived hours away from the Oakland house Paul helped us sell. So he
got right to hiring contractors, gardeners, junk haulers, sewer line crew,
stagers, etc. in order to quickly ready the house for the summer high market.
Paul has all the info and contacts to be this sort of FULL SERVICE realtor to
quickly and got us good deals on the needed work, including choosing and
purchasing the lighting, bathroom, etc. fixtures himself! He is a
talented designer, and we never had to take time out of our busy lives to
choose colors or carpet or tile, etc.. He also set us up on Docusign,
making it quick & easy to sign documents from afar. And this man
FOLLOWS THROUGH on every little detail! We felt so confidant knowing how
totally on top of everything he was.
Paul's amazing service is the reason the house sold in just a few weeks
for more than asking price. We feel so fortunate to have chosen such a
hard-working realtor who loves what he does and EARNS his money!

Paul sold my
mothers house. Now that in itself does not sound like a big deal, but he helped
me with the emotion of the entire ordeal, and made the process so easy. I
do not even know what to say about Paul. FABULOUS does not even cover all the
extra care, attention to detail, professionalism, fun, integrity, etc. I
found that if you listen to everything he tells you and suggests that you do,
Thank You Paul,
I wanted to send you a quick
note thanking you for selling my house at 13070 Brookpark Rd. The whole
transaction from start to finish was done very efficiently and in a timely
manner. All the decisions and suggestions you made were right on, and it led to
a quick sale at the best price. I would not hesitate to call on you in the
future for any real estate needs. Thanks again for a job well done.
Sincerely, Ernie Wong
“Paul, I truly appreciate you
as a consultant and support during the sale of my home. Seeing the daily
reports on the news regarding the real estate market being bleak and seller's
being forced to lower their asking prices by thousands of dollars heightened my
concern for selling; but you made the difference! In spite of the reports, you
remained optimistic and encouraging.
Thank you for making yourself available, sharing the details and
communicating every step of the process. I definitely felt like you had my best
interest at heart and I could trust your judgment. Thanks...what a wonderful
and profitable partnership!! Continued Success in the market...”
Paul Di Leo is a realtor in
Oakland whom we chanced to meet at at Sunday Open House. My son talked to
him about what would work for him. The first property Paul showed us was
the style, neighborhood, and price range our son and his new wife desired.
We were nervous because it was a short sale, something we had been
warned to avoid, but our offer was accepted, and after many documents, a little
bit of drama, and Paul's positive energy, the deal went through. Paul was
quick to respond to any phone call, and would check out any questions or
concerns we had. There was never any hesitation to call whomever could
get him the information we needed. He was always ahead of us for any
appointments, and kept us focused on what would come next in the complicated
realty arena. The home needed some TLC and Paul knew many contractors and
businesses that could restore the home for us. Four of them are working
for us now.
Best of all, Paul was
a joy to work with and skillfully dealt with the personalities of my son,
husband, and myself. We would work with Paul again, and highly recommend
him to anyone searching for a home.

"Paul Di Leo sold our home for
us during the peak of the spring housing season. We me him at an open house in
our neighborhood and instantly felt that he would be the best person to work
with and sell our house. Paul was very open with suggestions that he felt would
improve the selling capabilities of our property. Once we established that he
would be our Realtor, we set up a timeline and checked in regularly to keep
ourselves on track. We didn't ever have to deal with any "last
minute" changes or issues. Paul regularly kept us informed of all our
deadlines and he was able to be present for all the inspections that we had to
go through. Our open house was a breeze. The entire process flowed as he had
predicted; we were able to sell our house in an extremely short period of time
for more than we hoped for. I would recommend Paul's services, experience and
expertise to anyone. In addition to being a very friendly and honest person, he
also naturally became our "housing therapist" when we needed him to

"IF YOU NEED TO SELL YOUR HOME,
YOU NEED Paul Di Leo "We can't say enough about the talents and skills of
Realtor and designer Paul Di Leo. In February, we needed to sell our Montclair
home, while living overseas. We needed help quickly, and Paul saved the day.
Working with us by phone, fax, and email, Paul remodeled our home beautifully,
marketed our home masterfully and closed the deal quickly. We received a dozen
offers on our home and a much higher than listed selling price. Working with
Paul is a pleasure. He holds your hand every step of the journey. He is kind,
dedicated, honest, reliable, creative, and patient. He is extremely
knowledgeable about the real estate market and how it works. His standards are
exceptionally high and he surrounds himself with co-workers and industry
professionals of that caliber. Paul is a bright, compassionate person who
understands the challenging and difficult task of selling a home. He knows
exactly what to do to make the sale happen and to help sellers relax along the
way. It has truly been a blessing for us to have you "appear" in our
lives and take care of us and the sale of our home so well. We are most
grateful. Thank you, Paul, for helping us."

Even the most discerning Buyer would be fortunate to be represented by Paul Di Leo. His professionalism and unparalleled follow-up sets a new standard in residential real estate. I have enjoyed working with Paul and have learned that he will approach every turn in the transaction with a "can do" attitude and a positive attitude. Paul's attention to detail is meticulous: a quality that is required in the shifting contract sands of California real estate forms. Most importantly, though, he completely shelters his clients from any harm and guides them confidently through the shoals of a transaction. It is a pleasure working with Paul.
I would like to take this opportunity
to thank you for your wonderful service. Without you I would never have been
able to find such a perfect home. You made the process, which is usually
cumbersome, a pleasure. In addition you went above and beyond your duty to help
with the mortgage, assisting me step by step until we finalized the closing. If
I ever have the occasion to buy another house, without doubt, I will call you.
I have already recommended you to my daughter who is starting to look for a new
home. It would be my pleasure to give your card to anyone I know looking for a
