    Paul was a great real estate agent. He helped me with selling my mother's house who recently passed away. I was so overwhelmed and not only did I never have experience selling a house, I had so much going on in my life. Paul was able to make this stressful situation in my life that much easier. He helped get us an amazing offer and quickly close on my mother's house with the least amount of stress possible!

    Although acting as a dual agent, Paul was extremely attentive to the needs and requests of the buyer. Plan to work with him again in the future.

    Paul Giannantonio of ERA Statewide Realty worked with us identifying the right property to meet our changing needs and also was instrumental in the selling of our existing home. He was always accessible and willing to make a variety of suggestions that made our buy and sell seamless. He is a true professional who is trustworthy, knowledgeable and experienced. We know we made the right decision with Paul and are truly grateful. Thank you, Paul !

    To prospective real estate clients. Look no further, you will be in great hands with Paul G.! The backstory - our home was previously on the market but did not sell. We hired Paul and he got it done! His professionalism, clever marketing, negotiation skills, and overall real estate knowledge are superb. Our home of 21 years went on the market at the "right price" based on the analysis provided by Paul...our home received several offers and sold in 1 day! Thank you Paul for your patience and guidance through our selling process. Paul G. you are the BEST!

    Joseph gave Paul 5 stars out of 5
    I was referred to Paul early on in the home selling process and we first met to discuss improvement ideas. Paul was willing to go through the house, room by room and list off the improvements that would have the biggest impact on potential buyers. He utilized his experience and local market knowledge to prioritize improvement ideas for us and then put us in touch with local contractors and suppliers for these projects. We had an amazing experience working with every contractor and vendor he recommended and all were affordably priced. The house would have been dramatically less valuable without his help. When it came time to list the house on the market, Paul helped us decide on the appropriate listing price and took great pictures of the house for us. Paul's listing was so good that we had an offer on the very first day that the house was on the market! From there he provided excellent guidance on negotiating with the buyer and we were able to settle on a price which had exceeded our initial expectations. Lastly, throughout the closing process Paul was instrumental in preparing the property. He helped us understand the codes that the home needed to meet as well as guidance with the repairs the buyer's had requested. He also recommended a great lawyer to work on the closing for us. Without Paul's help we would have been lost trying to sell this house. And throughout the entire process he was easy to reach, easy to communicate with, and very knowledgeable. I would recommend his services to anyone who needs to buy or sell a home.
    Brian gave Paul 5 stars out of 5
    Fantastic service... had a great deal on my property within a week, which was not to be expected. Always available for calls or questions, and got everything done on his side as quick as possible. Highly recommend.
    Tracie & Hugh gave Paul 5 stars out of 5
    We would highly recommend Paul. Paul listened to our needs and stayed close to the market to ensure we were aware of homes that matched those needs. He knew the market, he gave advice when needed, and helped us negotiate terms that led to a successful purchase. Post purchase he continued to help guide us until the close.
    Valerie gave Paul 5 stars out of 5
    Paul was so helpful and knowledgeable. As a single young woman and first time home buyer, I was a little confused and overwhelmed going into the search for a home. Paul found me listings that aligned with what I was looking for and even had features I didn't know I needed! His expertise and guidance kept me away from problem properties that wouldn't have been a good investment for me. He was so flexible with my work schedule and was quick to book appointments when he found a good property for me. Paul made the house hunting process so much easier than I thought it would be, and I'm happily typing this from my new home! I trust Paul 100%, and am so lucky I had the opportunity to work with him!
    Pritesh gave Paul 5 stars out of 5
    Paul is trustworthy and client focussed realtor. He helped me sell and buy a home i.e. two transaction in last 1 year. He is really full service realtor. His network of team who helped me with these transactions is very professional and best priced. He never pushed me for any decision but really guided me based on his experience and introduced me to right people. Paul, Thank you and wish you continued success.
    Raymond & Kate gave Paul 5 stars out of 5
    As first time home buyers, we wanted to work with a realtor based on a family/friend referral. Paul was strongly recommended by mutual friends who just bought their first home, so we contacted him to get started. Paul is very knowledgeable of Somerset County, our target area for our home search. He gave his opinion about neighborhoods, he pointed out issues with homes during our walk through, and let us know if houses were priced above/below/at accurate market value. Paul was also very patient with us as we had many questions and we asked him to show us almost 30 homes. He drove us to all home viewings and open houses; which I think was above and beyond the regular tesponsibility of a realtor. This service was most definitely appreciated! He answered emails and texts promptly and thoroughly. Paul found us our perfect first home just before Christmas and we moved in two months later, just in time before the arrival of our first child. Thank you, Paul for helping us start our next life adventure in our first home.
    Liz gave Paul 5 stars out of 5
    Paul always had our best interests at heart. He understood our needs and wants and helped us find the perfect starter house for our family. He was always honest with us and helped us make the best decision. I would strongly recommend using him as your realtor. We will definitely be using him in the future.
    Julianne & Tim gave Paul 5 stars out of 5
    Paul was fantastic. He knew exactly what we wanted and walked us through the whole process. We couldn't have picked a better real estate agent. We will definitely be back for our next move.

    Paul is so quick and immediate. He reads what the customer wants and gets the right answer.
    Tony gave Paul 5 stars out of 5
    Paul Giannantonio did a tremendous job assisting me with selling a home and relocating to a new property on extremely short notice. Once engaged, Paul took the lead in helping with the accurate market analysis and a concise plan to sell our home. Concurrently, he quickly found a number of different properties that matched my needs, created 3 different offers and completed the transaction on a new property in less than 60 days. He is personable and a very resourceful agent that pays attention to detail and knows how to derive market valuations of a property. He was open, honesty and responsiveness to my needs. With a complete understanding of the short time constraint, Paul worked aggressively with my schedule to show as many properties as possible. His judgement and ability to meet my particular needs was outstanding. Paul has a level of professionalism and integrity that you don't often find in a real estate agent today. I was a sincere pleasure to work with him. He was a partner with me throughout the process and someone I could trust from beginning to end. If I was to buy another property in Somerset County, I would highly recommend Paul Giannantonio. If you would like a personal reference, please ask Paul to share my reach number with you and I would be glad to explain why Paul is the right choice.

    Paul was a great real estate agent! He was always available to bring us to see homes and helped us through the home buying process. We did not end up using his mortgage guy (he didn't have the best rates), but the lawyer Paul recommended was also very good.

    Why are you using national home search websites?

    I often wonder why so many people log onto or use the national aggregator home search websites. All the same properties are available on a local real estate broker's site. All one would have to do is a Google search for local real estate agencies in the city or area of interest and a list of local brokers will appear. By doing this the consumer eliminates the "middleman". When a customer request is sent to a local agent from the national websites, i.e. Zillow, Trulia, a refer...

    Why Now is Not the Time to End Your Home Search

    I want to address some disturbing trends I am recently observing in some of the homebuyer's thought process. It is showing up in national surveys and I have experienced this firsthand with some of the buyers I am working with right now.The thinking is now turning in the direction that now is not a good time to buy a home. Some buyers are thinking they should step to the sidelines while others even hesitate to jump into the market. Somehow, they believe that by waiting they will be...

    Does A Real Estate Agent Have Fiduciary Duties?

    Today I'm going to talk to you about the fiduciary duties that an agent takes on when you hire them to be your representative. Now, when I said hire them, I really mean that a true agency relationship is designated by a separate written agency agreement. So if you are a buyer, if an agent has just taken you out and is showing you houses, they don't necessarily represent you per se. And they haven't been bound by the six specific standards that are required, in the fiduciary relationship that is...
