We chose Paul over four other agents, one who was a family friend, because of his easy going personality and knowledge of the Somis area. Even though it took us over two years to sell our unique home and property, Paul never lost his enthusiasm or willingness to help!
My wife and I contracted with Paul to help sell our house. He Knows the Somis area very well and is exceptionally easy to work with. He is very accommodating as we requested that no lock box be put on the door. As a result, he was at all the showings. He gave great advice with regard to what should and should not be done in order to quickly sell our house at a fair price. We found him to be very trustworthy and professional in all his recommendations.
Paul marketed and sold my property successfully. He navigated through three escrows, a tenant with too many horses, the neighbor’s easement agreement, and the ultimate buyer short of funds at his final walk thru to make a very complex sale appear seamless to me. Thank you Paul!
Paul Ward is one of the most amazing professional and friendliest agent ever. I highly recommend Paul to Everyone. If you want a trustworthy, non pushy, knowledgeable, understanding and hardworking agent with lots of patience, please use Paul. YOU WONT REGRET, I PROMISE!!! Because of my circumstances, buying my house was not an easy process but Paul got us both through it.
I was referred to Paul by my sister. She has known and hired him on several occasions. He have been her agent for many many years now. He has been her listing, selling, and property manager/agent for many of her homes. Paul is not only our agent but he is now our family. I can’t say enough good things about Paul, he is great to work with.
Paul is an extraordinary Buyers agent with the skill and patience to listen to your needs and then find the “just right” home at the right price. Rare to find an Agent who clearly understands the value of “service”. Very pleased with Paul’s professional advice and plan to refer others to him for the purchase or sale of their home.
Paul Ward is an outstanding Real Estate Agent! Having grown up in a Real Estate family, I have personally worked with hundreds of agents over more than 40 years. Paul easily ranks in the top 10% of all the Real Estate professionals that I’ve known.
Paul Ward recently listed and sold our ranch property in Ventura County. Due to recent drought and economic conditions, the property was especially difficult to market. Through his extensive internet marketing skills, his experienced property knowledge, and his highly developed networking assets, Paul was able to put together a complex deal that not only resulted in the sale of our ranch, but also the sale of a neighboring property.
We highly recommend Paul Ward for any real estate sales need. He is extremely conscientious, knowledgeable, experienced, and thorough! We look forward to working with Paul again in the future!
I recently sold a home that I had bought in 2007. In the process, I discovered that the real estate market had vastly changed since then. I was fortunate to have a friend recommend Paul Ward to me. Paul understood, that in order sell the house that I lived in, the sale had to be contingent on my finding a place which to move. This required finding a buyer that could accept the contingency and skillfully negotiating with all parties to meet all needs and to do so in compliance with regulations that were constantly popping up and then changing. It also required expertise in the bizarre purchasing procedures that have evolved in the wake of the financial crash and the subsequent economic upheaval.
Through his continuous effort, Paul was in touch with with competent bankers who specialized in specific areas of finance. Using the resources he had developed over time and experience, he introduced me to the precisely right lender.
Even though I was prepared to buy a property to move to, my first preference had been to rent. Two things happened unexpectedly, one good and one bad. The bad thing was the city of Ventura’s requirement that in order to sell a property, the sewer lateral must pass a drainage test. That in and of itself would not be a bad thing, but when they decided that it included the part under the street, the cost suddenly soared into thousands of dollars.
The good thing that happened was that a rental property became available. That was when Paul really swung into action. He found a competent and conscientious plumbing contractor and assured all the concerned parties that this was the prudent course of action. He also knew how to pay for the initial move-in expenses and the contractor expenses out of the escrow proceeds. Since everyone had to agree to the solution, I thank Paul entirely for making that happen. And he did it all in an honest and friendly manor. I am sure that everyone involved would agree entirely.
During the entire process, I was aware that Paul had multiple deals going simultaneously. That notwithstanding, whenever my input or response was needed he was in touch immediately. Likewise if I needed clarification or reassurance, he almost always took my call live or returned my voice mail or email in a very timely manor.
I am sure there were a great many wrinkles that got ironed out without my input. Paul made a complex situation appear to be smooth and seamless.
I enthusiastically give Paul Ward a Five Star recommendation for any Real Estate transaction for which you need a proactive agent.
Paul Ward was our only realtor for the 4.5 years we were marketing our ranch. Our property was a very challenging one to sell and we knew after a thorough interview process that he was the right choice for us. Why was he our agent for this entire period? During these tough times Paul was undeterred, always making the extra effort to insure the property was properly promoted: spending additional time with us and interested clients. He was always patient and kind. He is a consummate professional with keen marketing skills; a calm unflappable demeanor with and a real down home desire to please. He made a long ordeal as seamless and hassle free as we could have hoped for. Will we use Paul again? Without a doubt.
I met Paul after making an inquiry on a property he had listed in Somis, CA. Shortly after meeting him, I knew I was in good hands. Even though my budget was quite modest compared to his recent and past sales, he never once made me feel unimportant. Paul is extremely knowledgeable and attentive. I believe his best qualities are being relatable, easy to talk to, and approachable. And his calm demeanor that everyone else has mentioned in the reviews, could not be more true! I trust and highly recommend Paul Ward to all of my family and friends.
My wife and I are experienced home buyers and sellers with over 10 real estate transactions under our belt. Speaking from experience, we can honestly say that Paul was the most genuine, easy going, and knowledgeable real estate agent we have had. Heartfelt thanks to Paul for making our home sale a breeze. They don’t always go as smoothly as this one. We would definitely do business with him again. We especially liked his calm, sincere, professional demeanor and helpful advice throughout the transaction which lead to a timely close of escrow. Paul comes highly recommended to anyone looking for an honest, knowledgeable, and dependable agent.
We have recently sold our ranch after considerable negotiation and effort on Paul’s part. One of Paul’s endearing qualities is his competent, tenacious and gentile manner in professionally interfacing with Seller and Buyer. He never attempted to suggest lowering the asking price to get a quicker sale, even after investing considerable effort and advertising expense to present extensive online photos, videos and presentations in publications relevent to our thirty-five years of farming. We have no hesitancy in recommending Paul to undertake either farming or residential sales. We expect to eventually purchase a smaller residence and have every intention of seeking Paul’s services to locate a suitable property and consummate a sale.
Paul worked with us over a long period of time, years actually, to find the right property for our particular needs. He was available for consultation, helpful, and was always looking out for our interests. His follow through is excellent, and you really feel that he is genuinely concerned with making the whole experience a positive one,even after the escrow closes. We highly recommend him.
Paul is without a doubt one of the finest real estate professionals I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. It is so refreshing to work with someone who works with such speed and insight. He has the unique ability to anticipate issues and acts quickly to make them non issues. We had to be out of town for the majority of the sales process yet Paul made it seem like we were in his back yard. His expert use of technology also enhanced the entire experience. In summary I will use Paul for future transactions and look forward to doing so.
Paul has been a valuable asset and assisted us in a very difficult time. Currently I have him looking for a replacement property to move our business and home to. I would recommend him to anyone in need of real estate
We found and bought our dream home in Somis from a nice lady, whom Paul Ward also represents. It took a few months to negotiate this unique property, and after the usual stressful move, we have moved in. I have not seen Paul display stress, when at times things get hectic. His calming demeanor has a positive effect on the parties involved. He navigated through a more complex transaction representing both sides, and it is clear he knows his boundaries, fiduciary duty, and is well experienced in transactions. Thank you again Paul!!!
Paul ward is very easy to work with, he makes you feel very comfortable so you can ask the questions you need to ask. Also Paul is very Professional in his field. I would deal with him again in a future purchase, I highly recommend him.
Paul is a great agent! He’s friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. Throughout the process of helping me find a property in an area I was interested in but not overly familiar with, I appreciated his calmness and guidance. He never pushed or rushed me, gave me the time while I learned about the area helping me with contacts for information from city hall, to contractors, to restaurants. I found him to be a down to earth, likable person who showed a lot of integrity through a particularly difficult negotiation process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Paul. A good guy!
We recently purchased our first home. Paul was awesome! He responded quickly to all of our requests and was great at explaining all the “ins and outs” of purchasing a home. We HIGHLY recommend him!!
This agent was always very patient and ready to act on our needs. He also got along extremely well with neighbors and other representatives. He was willing to “go the extra mile” for us.
Paul Ward should be everyone’s realtor! He is professional and willing to work hard to keep things moving smoothly. He was never pushy and was always around to answer questions or solve problems. We had a two week escrow that could’ve been crazy, but he handled everything perfectly for us
Paul went above & beyond to get my property sold. It was a unique situation and he pulled out all the stops to get it sold! Very knowledgeable and professional and I couldn’t be happier. I would recommend him highly.
Paul Ward has done an outstanding job selling and buying properties for me during the last six years. I know I can count on Paul for all my Real Estate needs.
We looked for a farm property in the Somis/Fillmore area for about 2 years. During this period Paul showed us several properties meeting our guidelines. He is extremely knowledgeable in his business and we got educated tremendously along the way. During the two year period we never felt pressured into making a hasty decision. Paul is very calm and simply lays down the facts and let you make the decision. His professionalism is exemplary. We are very happy with our purchase and will highly recommend him to represent a buyer or a seller or both.
We looked for a long time and Paul was always patient and enthusiastic. His knowledge of the area was extremely helpful and he showed us things we never would have considered had we been looking on our own. when it came time to actually buy something the process became very complicated and he stuck with us and supervised the process to keep it moving forward so we could close. Truthfully, the purchase of what is our Dream House would never have been possible without him. The entire deal could have fallen apart, but his professionalism and ability to keep everyone involved on track kept it moving forward and here we are in a place we really love. We highly recommend him.
Paul was very helpful in helping me find and negotiate for a wonderful property. He and I worked together for 2 years before locating the property. He help me understand the value of the place and as well as locate the proper location in Somis for my goals.
I find Paul very professional and an exceptional agent. He sold a property of ours that was a difficult sell in a difficult market. His knowledge and use of the of the internet is phenomenal. We have also purchased a property with Paul representing us. He also found a tenant for us. He listens and combines his real estate acumen to the best possible use. He is a very accessible and personable agent. He has our highest recommendation.
Paul Ward was an incredibly patient and thoughtful agent that made the entire experience of our buying a home a pleasure. His vast knowledge of the area was very helpful. I would highly recommend anyone interested in purchasing property in the area contact Paul. Great agent!
