My wife and I had a terrific experience with Paul and his team, he was genuinely invested in our interests and was always one step ahead of our questions and concerns throughout the process. We were thrilled to get above market value on our sale too, thanks again Paul!!
My husband and I were very fortunate to have worked with Paul to purchase our home. As first-time home buyers, we knew little about the process and how to navigate the real estate market. Paul took the time to walk us through step by step, ensuring that we understood what to look for and get the most out of our purchase. He was extremely patient, and took the time to show us all of the houses we requested, even those he knew wouldn't meet our criteria. This taught us how to better select homes that we would like and narrow down our search. Through his knowledge of real estate and expertise, we were able to find the perfect first home! We are so grateful to have had such a great real estate agent to partner with us through this exciting process, and we will continue to use Paul for all of our future real estate endeavors. Thank you, Paul!

We are new to the Denver area, and were lucky to be introduced to Paul. He had a great knowledge of the suburbs we were interested in, and took the time to show us many different neighborhood options that fit our needs. When we found the house we wanted, there were issues with the closing due to a Bank error and a difficult seller. Paul skillfully worked through these issues to get to a smooth conclusion. We would highly recommend Paul, and would definitely work with him in the future.

Paul did a fantastic job helping my family find a wonderful house. He spent a lot of time with us, gave great advice without being pushy, and was very creative to help us win this house.
My wife and I recently moved back to Colorado to be near family. We tried calling several agents, but were told that the market is too hot and that it's impossible for people like us who don't have a huge down payment to win the bidding wars for houses in the Cherry Creek School District. Paul was a refreshing change. He told us: yeah, the market is hot, but that he had a lot of experience with creative ways of making offers stronger and that he would do what it took to help us.
And that promise was more than repaid by our experience. We called him a couple times to learn about the market and what was available, and then spent one afternoon driving around with him to all the houses on the market in the area we were looking. He walked us through how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a house, how to think about our preferences, and how to make strong offers without overpaying or sacrificing our goals.
After that first intense visit, Paul set us up to get alerts when houses in our target area came on the market. We spent a couple weeks hurrying out the house in the morning to be the first people to see new houses and Paul was always there on short notice just in case we wanted to get in the first offer. After a few weeks we found a house perfectly suited for our 5 and 2 year old kids, near the elementary school and pool, in a friendly neighborhood, and Paul helped us strategize an offer that was well within our budget but also impressed the sellers enough to beat out a few others.
We just closed today and started moving into our new house. A few of the neighbors already came by to say hello. It's going to be awesome here. Thanks, Paul!
When my family and I first knew I was going to be purchasing a condo we knew exactly who to call. Paul was very attentive to my needs. Paul was very responsive to meeting with me at short notice. We found a condo with a garage attached. It has these amazing windows for the sun to come in. It has everything I was looking for. Paul is very knowledgeable in his profession and you can rely on him that he will find the right home for you. I highly recommend Paul. I love my condo.
Paul and his team did an outstanding job selling our home and went beyond all expectations! The moment he sat down with us with portfolio in hand as well as a game plan to sell our house, I knew this would be a win-win situation. The house was under contract within 4 days; on a holiday weekend. Paul and his team were with us every step of the way and always available and kept us informed of everything. Top Notch Professional team. I highly recommend Paul whether you are selling or buying!!
Paul has a great deal of knowledge about home construction. We could always count on him to point out both the good and not so good aspects of the homes we looked at. We needed to buy during the "hot" Denver market and Paul kept us on track in our desired location. He did an outstanding job for us!
Jan and Dick S.
After a less than impressive experience with another local agent, we interviewed 3 more. Paul was one of those we interviewed, and by far the best. His local market knowledge and level of professionalism is multiple levels above the competition. He was very helpful from start to finish and got us two offers within 4 days of listing the home! Thanks again for everything Paul.
Paul was our agent when selling my mother's home in Highlands Ranch and purchasing her new home in a golf course community near Parker. He was wonderful to work with! The sale was a difficult situation, but Paul's kind, steady demeanor and guidance got us through and it sold right away for a record per square foot. His team does fantastic marketing and he knows the ropes in the Denver area market. He then spent lots of time and effort to find the perfect home for my mom, who had a long list of "must haves"- and he nailed it! When the listing came on the market he had us first in the door to see the house, and worked to beat out another offer and solidify our deal. He is the kind of person you want in your corner when you are looking for the perfect new home!
We asked Paul to list our house and he did a great job! Having the house reviewed by the Stager proved to be very helpful in taking professional quality pictures for Internet marketing and printed brochures. A 3D scan was also done and this was an excellent tool for prospective buyers, especially after viewing the house. With his extensive network of agents he was able to reach a large group of Realtors with prospective buyers. Paul did a great job of marketing our house and we were glad he was our Realtor. Thanks Paul!
Karen & Bill S.
Paul patiently walked us through all of our options and helped develop a strong game plan in this competitive market. His attention to detail and ability to see potential trouble helped us to realize the true value of houses that we looked at. He quickly recognized exactly what we were looking for and helped fine tune our search process so that we could efficiently examine houses. His knowledge of house builders, styles and era in which the houses were built helped us avoid looking at houses that did not fit our requirements. Paul made it easy for us and we highly recommend working with him!
Dan and Sarah Z.
We recently learned that we would be relocating our family from Denver to Houston for our job, which is the third time we have moved between states. Given our prior experience we were well aware of the stress and anxiety that accompanies the process of selling our home. That being said, we knew one of the most important decisions we had to make was choosing the right real estate agent. We selected Paul Sobania; we made the right decision!
Paul's attention to detail, sense of urgency, ability to listen and understand our needs, patience and honesty, were just a few of the attributes he offered in supporting us. His ability to be there every time we had a question or concern, giving us his undivided attention throughout, and offering his guidance along the way made us feel that he represented us as friends, family, not as an "agent". I sincerely feel that he cared more about our welfare than his own; something that in today's world is hard to say.
Equal to his exceptional customer service was his subject matter expertise. Regardless of how many times we move, the process is always quite intimidating with all the contracts and legalities. Paul clearly knew his business and more important, clearly communicated everything to us!
Our only disappointment was that Paul wouldn't take our recommendation and move his business to Texas with us. Paul, thank you for your support!
Allan and Janet W.
Paul was the best Realtor we have used. Beyond the great services he provided in our home purchase, Paul went far above and beyond. Our house backed to an open area with nice tall evergreens. This area was to be developed. He contacted the City and actually made a copy of the project plans and how it would affect us. Most importantly he found out they were to save the existing trees. Also, the selling agent tried to back out of our contract because they received a higher bid a day after. Paul contacted his company's attorney and fought the seller in violation of our contract. We had no idea this was possible and he could have simply told us that we lost the house.
Drew and Mira
Paul did an amazing job selling my house. He worked an incredible deal for me- significantly over asking price, waived inspection and appraisal, lease back at no cost. Phenomenal. On the flip side, found me and my family the perfect house in our price range in the exact location we were looking. You won't be disappointed using Paul as your realtor.
I've worked with Paul in both a sale transaction and a purchase transaction. During the sale, Paul provided helpful insight regarding which offer to accept. He was very knowledgeable as to the risks of various offers (ie. contingencies), and we ultimately got the best price from a reliable buyer. He also had referrals for repair work that needed to be done as a result of the inspection, and helped set up appointments to complete the work quickly. On the purchase side, I appreciated Paul's persistence in finding the house I was looking for. He was realistic and honest with my options, but did not want me to settle, and his patience (and advice on an offer) put me into a house that's perfect for me. I would definitely recommend working with Paul. I felt that my transactions were completed fairly and with integrity. And, if a problem arose, I was confident Paul would be able to handle it.
We made both a purchase and a sale with Paul. Both went extraordinarily well. During the purchase, Paul very quickly understood our tastes and priorities. This was during a hot seller's market, but Paul was able to find properties that met our expectations and make arrangements for us to see them and get an offer in quickly. During initial walk-throughs, Paul was able to identify important issues and give very accurate estimates of the costs associated with them. This helped us get into a wonderful house, quickly, at a price we could afford. Due to Paul's accurate observations during the walk through and inspections, we didn't have to handle any new surprises. Because of the great experience with the purchase, we went to Paul again when it was time to sell. Again, he was able to understand our priorities (even though we shifted between wanting quick closing and wanting the best price). Paul guided us through some simple updates we could make that helped the house show extremely well. In each of these, his estimated cost and schedule was very close to the actual so we didn't have any surprises there either. To help balance our shifting priorities, Paul came up with a timeline for showings and a plan for accepting offers that got us several offers, all very quickly, and all over our asking price! I couldn't have asked for a better experience and I sincerely believe that Paul's expertise and hard work made that happen.
As first time home buyers looking to move into one of the hottest neighborhoods in Denver, Wash Park, we really needed an agent who would be there to answer all of our questions and help us jump on the right home when the time was right. We appreciated Paul's honest approach to the home selection process. We never felt like he was biased towards one home or another, but was always keeping our interests and needs in mind. We found Paul to be very helpful and always available for whatever we needed -- he went above and beyond, even after we closed on the home!
Thanks, Paul! We love our new home in Wash Park!
Alyssa & Matt
I met Paul through my work at Wells Fargo and was impressed by his professionalism! When it came time for us to list our home, I gave him a call. My husband and I were retiring after long careers, and making a move out of state, all at the same time...On top of that, our house had sustained significant damage from a hail storm, so we were still working through the repairs during the sale of our house. A lot was going on! It all turned out great: We sold our house very quickly for top dollar...Paul did a superb job. He is extremely knowledgeable and collaborated with us beautifully. One of the most valuable skills Paul has is he communicates so well with all the parties involved, and in a proactive manner. That helps keep things moving along, which was so important in a transaction with as much complexity as ours. I can't thank Paul enough for doing such a great job for us!
Paul was very observant and knowledgeable about facts that affected each home we looked at, from the surrounding area to the pros/cons of each home's construction. He also provided us with excellent resources; inspectors, mortgage help, duct cleaning and more. Paul and his staff helped us get pertinent information quickly on any questions we had.
We moved from Colorado Springs to Castle Rock, and needed a retirement abode - he gave us many options so we could make an informed decision. He worked diligently with us and, best of all, we love our new home!! Thanks, Paul!
Shirley and Don W.
Thank you so much for all you did for us, helping us to sell our home. You did way more than I thought you’d ever have to do! Like last time, you went above and beyond!!! You did an amazing job!! I will call you again someday to purchase another home.
Paul represented me in an investment property deal recently. He brings a unique set of skills and experience to the table because of his engineering background. He looks at real estate through a different lens, one informed by years of professional engineering. He thinks of things, especially with regard to the environment surrounding a property, that the average buyer wouldn't think of, like light pollution and dust. Paul's background, coupled with his passion for real estate, enables him to help his clients find a property best suited to their needs. Paul is also great with the people side of real estate, because he genuinely cares about people. He has uncompromising professional integrity and he is dedicated to making his clients happy. I look forward to working with Paul again.

Paul Sobania has been a pleasure to work with from day one. He came highly recommended from a friend and I would highly recommend him too. Not only did he get us a great deal on selling our house, he got us about $25,000 more than we expected! Paul also helped us find our new home, which we absolutely love. He was with us through all steps of the buying process and conducted himself as a true professional at all times. I don't know where we would be without him! Paul is a devoted family man who understands the needs of today's families. If you are looking for someone to go above and beyond the normal workings of a Realtor, look no further than Paul Sobania!
With the sudden need to relocate back to Georgia, I wanted a Realtor who could help me sell my house quickly and for the best price. Paul Sobania was recommended to me to do the job. Not only did he assist in getting my house sold on the day it listed and for the asking price, but Paul was instrumental in making sure that the steps to closing were followed promptly and efficiently! He found contractors to make repairs who saved me a lot of money, and he kept me moving along with the paperwork that had to be turned in to underwriters, etc. Patience is a virtue, and in my case, Paul had all the patience in the world. In addition to making sure the closing was a smooth one in CO, he also went beyond the call of duty in helping me achieve my purchase in GA. Thank you, Paul, for a job well done!
We have bought three homes in the course of our marriage, but our fourth purchase posed new challenges because it was for a property out of state. Important considerations like weather details, wind factors, prospective development in the area, and traffic flows were valuable insights Paul gave us - in addition to maintenance warnings, school ratings, comparative values, and the regular guidance expected of a good Realtor.
Both of us were deeply impressed by the preparation he invested in the properties to be presented. We were given a binder with comprehensive information about each house shown and which allowed space for us to enter our own impressions. When viewing 6 - 10 houses a day, that collective record was invaluable.
Our experience found Paul to be markedly informed, readily accessible, and profoundly solid in his professional integrity. Little wonder that we we absolutely recommend him without reservation.
You simply cannot do better.
Jerry and Sandy F.
My husband and I worked with Paul over the last ten years on four different transactions, he helped us with the sale of two homes and the purchase of two others. During the sale of our homes Paul expertise and market analysis were excellent. In both cases his guidance through the process was very professional and well planned; from the staging of our home, to the professional pictures and his well-developed marketing strategies. We really appreciated Paul’s expertise and dedication during the two purchase transactions as well. He has a great understanding of the housing market and well developed network of professionals that he works with and can recommend for anything that you may need during or after the home purchase. Our last purchase was a really complicated transaction and we really believe that if it was not for Paul’s expertise and network of people that he works with we would have never gotten our dream house. Paul was also really helpful in discussing pros and cons of the homes during our house hunt. His Civil Engineering background was helpful and in one case it prevented us from buying a home that he was able to determine had structural problems. Last but not least, I want to thank Paul for always being proactive, making himself available and always open for questions and suggestions during and after the transactions. Our experience working with Paul was nothing short of excellent and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of a Realtor's services.
Michele and I want to thank you for everything that you did to help us buy and sell our homes this past summer. Your attention to detail, market expertise, and thoughtful approach allowed us to maximize value on both ends of the transaction, as well as achieve optimal timing in a tricky situation. You walked by our side every step of the way and ensured our understanding of the process. We appreciate the opportunity to get to know you both personally and professionally and applaud you and your team in helping us make our family's dream a reality. All the best to you today and every day!
Andrew and Michele G.
I have used Paul's services to purchase two homes and sell another. The first home I purchased with Paul was an income property. Being a newbie to buying rentals, Paul was very helpful in showing me the ropes, including showing me a home in an area I had not previously considered. I ultimately purchased the property at a great price thanks to Paul's expertise. He also went beyond the call of duty and helped me become a landlord by guiding me through the steps in finding tenants, leases, and maintenance workers. In addition, Paul showed me countless homes prior to helping me find my new primary residence. Paul has a background in civil engineering, which I believe is extremely helpful in finding potential defects in a residence. He notices things that others seem to miss and he will let you know when it's time to consider calling in the experts or walking away from a house. He let me know which homes he thought we should consider and which ones we shouldn't, regardless of the fact that it took us over a year to finally find the right home for us. He quickly sold our previous residence and provided excellent counsel through the ups and downs of moving. Paul will work tirelessly to help find the right home for you, whether it be an income property or your dream home!
First, let me say thank you, Paul! Your commitment, dedication, and professionalism were exemplary at every stage of our home selling and home buying journey. Whenever we had questions, wanted to view properties, or needed advice, you were quite prompt and very helpful. I can’t tell you the number of times, my wife and I remarked on your professionalism! We were both quite impressed with it. This was especially apparent as we dealt with other supposed professionals in the mortgage arena. No one else involved in this process delivered on their promises the way you did. For any prospective clients looking for a first-rate Realtor, Paul Sobania is amongst the very best! We were pleased with the personal attention to detail by Paul. I will not hesitate to recommend Paul to anyone looking to buy real estate in the Denver Metro area market!

A change in relationship status prompted me to begin to look at selling my home. With many Realtors to choose from, we went with Paul, as I knew from working with him in his previous career what a hard worker he is. Our selection was not misguided. Paul brought in a professional photographer and did an excellent job of marketing our home. We were pleasantly surprised that our home so sold quickly that we were caught off guard. He was able to assist with this situation also and rose to the occasion. He helped us find a wonderful new home that was exactly what we were looking for and in a very short time span. From listing our home for sale to closing on both the old and new home was a mere 60 days. In that time span Paul was able to help us work through the negotiations and paperwork with both the buyer of the old home and the seller of the new home. The speed with which it all happened left us spinning, but with Paul’s help, we landed firmly on our feet. I would definitely recommend Paul’s services if you are looking to buy or sell a home.
Paul helped us sell our townhome and find our home that we have loved for the past 8 and ½ years. Paul made the selling process easy and showcased our townhome perfectly. I always enjoyed receiving the buyer’s feedback after each showing. While Paul was working hard on selling our townhome he worked harder finding us a perfect home for our growing family. Not to mention the hours he spent listening to my likes and dislikes in a house. Paul’s diligence and commitment to us was remarkable. His patience, emotional support and honesty was greatly appreciated and needed during this process. Paul was organized, responsive and positive all the way to closing. Eight and a half years, several home renovations and a few urges to upgrade later he continues to take my random phone calls. Paul, should I put hardwood in the powder room, do you have a good hardwood floor guy, do you think we need a bigger house, should we put egress windows in and so on! His continued commitment to us is astounding! He has gone above and beyond your typical Realtor and we highly recommend him.
I first met Paul at an open house where he was the listing agent. I was extremely impressed by his appearance, enthusiasm, dedication and knowledge in real-estate and selected Paul as my Realtor when I was ready to find my perfect house. During the house hunting process, Paul did an excellent job in selecting and showing me only houses that matched my preferences and requirements. He was always, prepared with maps, market analysis and detailed information for each house we visited. He paid attention to details and pointed out potential problems with each house. For example, windows that needs to be replaced, condition of furnace and water heater, noise from nearby traffic, etc.
His professionalism in negotiating with the seller’s realtor and handling of all the inspection items was first class. With his excellent negotiating skills, he convinced the seller to complete all inspection items which saved me money and time. Not only did Paul find the house I was looking for, but he also was a tremendous resource in selecting the best home inspectors and financing options. The services provided by Paul made buying a house a pleasant, easy and fun experience. It was a pleasure working with Paul and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I am writing on behalf of our experience in working with one of your agents, Paul Sobania. My wife and I (Molly) recently purchased a house in the Park Hill neighborhood of Denver. I met Paul through a mutual friend in San Francisco. In the last year we had recently relocated from San Francisco to Denver and were renting in Park Hill. Our landlords informed us over Thanksgiving that they intended to sell the house. I immediately scheduled a meeting with Paul and we put the plans in motion to make a hard push to put an offer on a house by the end of December.
Paul was very proactive and provided a quick and comprehensive search of the market based on our criteria. We looked at over 20+ properties in three weeks and settled on one of the first houses we saw. Paul was diligent in providing my wife and I council on the offer price and negotiations of the inspections. He had a great sense for the market and where the sellers hard points would be. We closed on Jan 14th and ended up with an appraisal the was above the purchase price by $18K!
…We had a great experience working with Paul and have recommended him as the listing agent for my mother’s property in Washington Park.
Brian and Molly H.
I was busy starting a new business in 2009 and without Paul’s help and support I don’t think I’d have been able to sell my home last year. He went beyond what I expected to coach me through getting my home ready, positioning it in the market, and the number of showings was outstanding. He was very proactive and kept me updated each week on progress finding a buyer, which didn’t take long.
When it was time to sell the house in the University Park area, we were fortunate to become acquainted with Paul Sobania. His approach to our transaction was considerate, fair and professional. Paul Sobania ranks among the best. Thanks to Paul, our sale was completed successfully and pleasantly. We wish him continued success in the future.
We used Paul to help us sell an investment property. Originally, we selected a less expensive, basic listing service expecting the property to ‘sell itself’. After unsatisfactory results we engaged Paul, who helped us understand the importance and benefit of using a knowledgeable professional. Paul provided us with resources and insight that helped us develop a practical marketing solution for the property based on our needs and market conditions. We went under contract in less than half the time it had been on the market with the basic service. Paul’s diligence and expertise then helped close the transaction issue-free. I would definitely recommend Paul’s services and would use him again in the future.
We moved from Florida to Colorado due to corporate relocation. We selected Paul as our realtor because he brought a lot of experience, in not only real estate, but building practices and builder reputation, to the table. Coming from a different area of the country it was critical for us to understand what the preferred building practices are for this area and Paul always had that information readily available – from basement sub floors to radon systems – we could depend on Paul. Paul spent a great deal of time supporting our long range house hunting. His website was great for home searches as well as market analysis and school information. Everything was right there and we didn’t have to search on multiple different sites to narrow our search. To maximize the time we were physically here looking for homes, Paul always had a plan complete with binders of maps and information on each home that maximized our time together – he even pre-programmed all the home showings into his GPS so that we didn’t spend extra time trying to find where we were going! Paul demonstrated his excellent negotiation skills by getting us a great deal on the home of our dreams – even convincing the builder to throw in the radon system and a few other items. In today’s market there are many real estate agents that do real estate part time with a half-hearted commitment. This is not the case with Paul – he is ALL about real estate and stays current on all the recent news and building practices. We were thrilled with our experience working with Paul and we highly recommend him for your Colorado real estate needs!!!
Rudy and Lynette N.
We were very satisfied with Paul's efforts as our agent in selling our home. He obviously has a passion for real estate and his awareness of market trends and conditions was evident. We were extremely pleased with Paul’s diligence in helping us get our house sold during a very difficult period in the real estate market. We would not hesitate to recommend Paul as a real estate agent to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
We found Paul Sobania in our church bulletin. The best thing about working with him was that he really listened to us as the sellers. He gave realistic expectations and great pointers on staging our home. He made selling our house worry-free and we would recommend him to anyone wanting a positive home selling experience.
