“I've bought or sold over 10 properties and Paul is the best agent I ever had, by far. I needed carpeting and painting, and he had carpet samples in his trunk and a reasonably-priced painter who came 3 days later. The listing photos were great, he prequalified the buyers, he made great suggestions on prices, he knows the area...just a fantastic realtor and we'll be using him again in the future. I give him 10 stars out of 5.”

Paul Ragi was an absolute pleasure to work with. He worked behind the scenes to generate 20 showings in 3 weeks. He communicated and followed up quickly throughout the entire process. He let me make decisions but gave great guidance along the way on what to do and how to do it. When it came time to the closing he acted quickly and worked in the background to make sure everything went smooth and no issues arrived. I would highly recommend working with Paul in the future and would cetainly use him again!
- Michael P.
"When Paul was referred to us, we were told that he is absolutely great to work with - and our experience with him not only met that expectation, but truly far exceeded it. From the beginning, he was patient and knowledgeable, sharing his insight and expertise, and giving us the time needed to assess our own needs and desires when it came to buying a home for our family. Throughout this home buying process, and it truly is a process (what we thought we wanted in the beginning changes throughout the search as we learn more and see more of what is out there) - Paul tirelessly and patiently showed us homes, never pushed us along; rather he worked on our pace. When it came to making an offer, he combined his knowledge about real estate with his knowledge about what we wanted, to make our home happen! He is always responsive to emails and phone calls, made showings happen as quic! kly as we wanted them to, and he continues to offer his expertise whenever we need it. We'll always appreciate Paul for making the journey to our dream first home possible."
- Ankur & Sneha S.

- Aaron B.
"Our broker, Paul Ragi, was amazing. He is unquestionably the best broker I have ever worked with. He was knowledgeable, helped guide decision making, helpful in negotiations, knew the market very well. When entering a property, he would inspect and ask many questions that we did not know to ask. He approached every property as if he was going to buy it himself. He would steer us away from properties/sellers/agents that he saw issues with and we felt no pressure to make decisions or to conduct the search at our own pace. After getting to know our tastes, he even was able to bring us back to reality when we were expressed interested in a property, but he knew we wouldn't be happy with in the end. He was always professional and very accessible at any time of the day. If anyone out there is looking for a broker, you should stop looking and contact Paul. You will not be disappoinnted."
- Trushar & Rupal N.

"I was very pleased with the level of professionalism provided by Paul Ragi. He came in with a team that took pictures of the building and drew up the room dimensions so that a virtual walk through could be presented. He did the market analysis necessary to provide me with a proper price point and was able to get me four solid offers within a week of listing. I couldn't be happier with the service provided."
- Robert & Deborah C.
"Paul is the BEST! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. He really knows his stuff and makes sure that you're completely informed every step of the way. I bought my condo via short sale, and it took over nine months close! Despite the long wait, Paul was always extremely responsive and diligent in providing updates. He was always willing to go the extra mile, even at one point driving practically to Milwaukee to drop off a check for part of the closing. This was my first time buying property, and he really the process as easy as possible. Highly highly recommend."
