"Paul has tremendous knowledge of the Cary-Grove market. We accepted an offer in just 11 days. The buyer offered some challenges and Paul kept the deal on track, focused on the closure which we are pleased to report was successful and without any last minute surprises. Thanks Paul!"



"Paul was very professional and friendly. He is a great realtor and I would use his services again. One thing about Paul is his persistence. Even through the holiday season, Paul is available to answer questions and go over details about our closing. My kids call him Dedicated Dimmick ; )"



"We are so very thankful for Paul and everything that he did to help us find the perfect first home! We had no idea what we were doing and Paul helped us through every step of the buying process. He was so easy to get a hold of, and prompt at showing us places. Paul is honest, hardworking and a total joy to work with. We feel as though we have made a new friend in Paul and cannot wait to work with him again in the future. You will not regret working with Paul!"



"Paul initially assisted me with my relocation to the Chicagoland area from Pennsylvania in early 2015 and finding a rental home property to lease. He was always responsive and personable; I was always confident that he was consistently working in my best interests. We promptly found a property that suited my family's needs, and Paul and I stay connected, luckily enough.

The rental property lease for other reasons was only going to work for a one year term, so quickly I reached out to Paul to help us locate a home to purchase before the end of the lease. Paul moved quickly to arrange homes to visit meeting our criteria and price range, and after the first weekend touring homes, we found the ONE. Paul helped us review the comps and negotiate a price for an offer, and after negotiations, we were successful in getting the home we wanted. Throughout the entire process, Paul kept us fully informed and provided effective communications on the purchase process here in IL.

We just closed on the property yesterday, and I am happy to say I would gladly recommend Paul to others who are looking for a quality realtor to meet your real estate needs of any kind."



"Words alone are insufficient to express the professionalism, dedication and unwavering support of what I would say is the greatest realtor I have ever been in contact with. He has guided us through two purchases & one sale.

Paul sincerely listened to our needs and wants to find the right home(s) and wisely advised through the negotiation process. My first purchase was a short sale which needless to say requires a knowledgeable and fervent realtor.

The sale was nothing less than a roller coaster ride mostly due to issues out of our control but Paul proved his tenacity and went the extra mile (plus) to close the sale.

Combine him w/ an equally awesome attorney, Courtney Clark, and trust me- you will not be disappointed."



"Paul is professional and listens to your requests. He helped us look all over to find our dream home. He went well out of his way for us and has also found tenants for our condo that we rent out."



"We met Paul at a Open House he was hosting. We were not interested in the home he was selling, but mentioned we were looking to move into the area and needed some guidance as we were coming from out of town. He was quick to send us listings and show us properties. He has a great eye for home issues and gave honest opinions about the value of the home relative for the location and market trends. We ended up buying a foreclosed home (way under market value!) in the gorgeous Tower Lakes community and closed in under 30 days. We pushed him hard to make sure we moved in right after Christmas when we had time off work and he made it happen. Paul even covered an additional inspection fee so we could get an inspector to check our roof and grounds before a big snow storm. We are all moved in now and working on fixing up the place. Definitely recommend Paul for anyone looking in the Barrington area. He knows all the right people to get you what you need!"



"Paul was referred to me through a common contact who had nothing but great things to say about him. I figured it was worth my while to contact him for my first home purchase. I put an offer in on a short sale, July 2016 and just now closed in March of 2017. Through the entire process, Paul has been there to answer any questions and keep my spirits up through all the mess that was going on. He was prompt and always had a word of advice for me, which I took advantage of more than I probably should have. Through this experience, I can honestly say that I will use Paul for as long as he is in this business for any of my personal needs and for referrals. One of the good guys here!! Thanks Paul for all that you and your team did for me!"



"Paul helped me sell my home in 3 days, and helped me purchase my new home, all within a month. Paul and his associates are very professional, honest, and hard working. I wouldn't recommend anyone else!"



"Paul is fantastic. Always responsive & quick to help - a great guy. When I had questions or concerns and emailed or called him he had timely responses. He is also very dedicated with his work and is always looking out for the best interest of his clients."



"Paul was great he walked us thru the whole process of selling our home and finding us another home. He is very knowledgeable about the things you need to do to get ready to sell your home. He is also very knowledgeable at looking and finding potential problems at the houses we considered buying until we found the right house that we purchased. He made this whole process easy for us and it was enjoyable working with him. I would recommend Paul to anyone considering selling or buying a new house. This was the fourth time we have sold and bought a house and and he was the best real estate agent we have ever worked with."



"Paul has such an incredibly personal knowledge of the Cary-Grove area, and he handled every prospect of the purchase of our home so well, and with immense professionalism. He actually made buying a home an easy experience for us! His sales record proves he’s the guy that will get the job done. We will always use Paul for any of our real estate needs, and there’s no one I would recommend more."



"Paul was an absolute delight to work with. This was our first time buying a home and Paul was always available to answer our many questions and explain the process when he sensed we were unsure about something. We found a wonderful starter home and will definitely be calling Paul to help us buy/sell when our family begins to grow!"



"Paul understood exactly what we wanted and found us our dream house in just 3 days! After some negotiations, Paul was able to get us a great deal. If you're looking for a realtor who actually cares about his clients and works hard on your side, call Paul Dimmick."



"Paul has great knowledge of the market and knows a lot about the area. He knows what negotiation techniques work to get the deal done. Paul was excellent to work with and I highly recommend him to anyone!"



"Buying OR selling, Paul is your guy! Paul's knowledge of the market and pool of resources helped us to quickly sell and purchase. He went above and beyond to ensure we were knowledgable about the market ourselves. He always kept us in the loop and was very quick to personally respond to our comments or concerns. His team at Remax were great communicators and made scheduling showings effortless. Most importantly, Paul treated us like family. We gained a new home and a friend along the way. Thanks Paul!"



"Paul went out of his way to help me find a place that is a bit out of his normal selling/buying territory. He was always quick to answer questions at any time of the day and gave honest answers. If he didn't have an answer, he knows someone who does and got me in contact with them.
He also had solid recommendations for mortgage officers and inspection personnel - people he works with regularly and he is comfortable with."



"The home we fell in love with was a short sale, something we weren't familiar with. Paul walked us through all the possible scenarios before we decided to make an offer. It felt like forever to hear back from the bank, but Paul kept us updated the entire time. Paul met us at the home with our contractors so we could get quotes for the renos we envisioned, and was available to answer all of our questions. Overall, Paul exceeded what we expected out of a Realtor and made our short (really long) sale purchase enjoyable and educational. Thanks, Paul! We can't wait to show you what we've done with this place in the past three years!"



"I wasn't in a time crunch and looked at several houses over a few months time. Paul would always send me any new listings he thought I would like, but I was looking for a unique property. One day I received a call from Paul, he was very excited and wanted to meet me at a home that was just about to hit the market; he said "This is the one, John!" Boy was he right!! I was able to find a cozy home on a nice street and Paul was able to negotiate a great deal for me. He is a very hard working young man and gives his clients A+ service."



"If you are looking for a patient, reliable realtor, Paul Dimmick is your guy. We started looking at homes and then took a break to plan our wedding. Once things settled down, we got back to searching for the perfect First House with Paul. We saw lots, and I mean LOTS, of homes that we liked, but just couldn't find "the one." Paul wasn't pushy, he just kept smiling and sending us properties. Finally, we found a home and put an offer in. There were multiple offers and with Paul's guidance and expert advice, our offer was accepted and we went under contract!"



"We relocated from the East Coast and found Paul on Zillow. We had three days to find a home while we were house hunting and Paul was very efficient with scheduling showings while we were in town. He has great knowledge of the areas we were looking in, as well as the traffic to anticipate for our work commutes, which was a major factor to us. We were able to find a home and make an offer in the short time we were in Chicago, and the rest of the details were handled over the phone and through email, which can make it difficult, but Paul was a pleasure to work with."



"I totally fell in love with a house listed for more than I could afford. Paul pulled comps and worked his magic to negotiate the price down to 10% under list price!!! As a first time home buyer, Paul really made this a such an easy process. He has awesome knowledge of real estate! I've already referred Paul to my cousin and co worker and I will for sure be calling him to sell this place when I'm ready to settle down!"



"We had the pleasure of working with Paul for 6 months during the process of looking for and buying a house. He is very professional and really cares about his clients. He also understands the legal/ethical issues that come up with purchasing a property, and he was able to guide us through the many issues that developed. Paul really listened to us in regards to what we were looking for in a home and he ensured our checklist of items were met. He is very personable and he was always there to look at yet another house. We highly recommend Paul to work with as a broker-a great experience overall."



"This is the second time we've used Paul as our Realtor, and we were just as satisfied with his services this time around. He continues to raise the bar with his up to date marketing tools and innovative negotiations. Our home sold in less than a week, with multiple offers! Paul presented us with a spreadsheet to explain each offer and explained the different avenues we could take. Paul was even able to refer us to an agent in the state we were moving to; this guy doesn't quit and always gets the job done for his clients. Thanks for all your help, Paul!"



"Great agent. Great to work with. worked with Paul for years now always on time and on top of your questions and concerns."



"I am new to the process of home buying and selling, and I have realized how important it is to have an agent who not only knows what they are doing, but someone who is honest, and looks out for their clients best interest! Which is why we are blessed to have Paul as our agent. We have worked with Paul for a long time, and our experience has always been so positive! He helped my husband buy his condo, and helped us close on our first single home, just yesterday. He is very responsive to all of our questions and requests, and has a ton of patience! I recommend him, b/c he is an experienced professional that not only has a ton of knowledge about the home buying/selling process, but also has a wealth of knowledege on what to really look out for during a new home search, and provides his best input and offers great suggestions! On the selling side, we got an offer on our condo the same day it was listed b/c he priced it just right. So If you're on the hunt for a realtor, this is your guy! Trust me, you will not be disappointed."



"Paul is an outstanding broker. He happily guided us through every aspect of our search for the perfect home. I highly recommend Paul Dimmick. He is a tremendous asset and a great person overall."



"Paul helped me with real estate sale. He is very caring and professional. I can complete rely on him that he will do his very best to complete the job. I strongly recommend him for all real estate needs."



"We would have been lost without Paul. He was amazing in every aspect. So knowledgeable and was there for us every step. Paul made it very easy to set up appinotments to view homes. He was accessible each and every time I contacted him and tended to our needs accurately. Paul also provided outstanding contacts for our loan officer and lawyer. Like I said, we would have been lost without him."



"We really enjoyed working with Paul for a number of reasons! He was always available to help us when we had questions and was very flexible with regard to making time and working around our work schedules and other activities.

He knows the Barrington area well and understood what we were looking for in our first home search. Keeping in mind that we were looking for our first home, he made the process quick and easy for us to understand and follow...from paperwork to negotiations to looking for potential issues within different properties. We were definitely on a budget and he did an excellent job of sending us listings and showing us homes that were within our financial reach.

Most importantly, Paul is a nice, honest, and knowledgeable guy that always had our best interests in mind. My wife and I will absolutely be recommending Paul to friends and family.

We love our new home! Thanks Paul!!!"



"Paul was wonderful, very responsive, and always professional. I highly recommend him."



"If you're looking for a professional but also down to earth agent, look no further than Paul. Whether its a phone call, email or in-person contact, Paul always is an incredibly responsive agent who is looking out for right fit for his clients. He was willing to find time to visit homes on vastly different times and days of the week. He helps to serve as a guide for his clients while not making the decision for them. Being a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and Paul patiently answered all of these. Aside from being a great agent, you can tell that Paul is genuinely a good guy and like having him involved in your search. I have nothing bad to say - you will be very happy if you enlist Paul's expertise."



"Paul was very helpful and prompt. Without his expertise, I don't think I would have my house. He made the experience as easy as it can be. If I am ever going to buy another house, I am going to use Paul again. I highly recommend him as a Realtor."



"Paul was extremely knowledgeable and professional in finding us a new home. We must have looked at over 20 houses and Paul was able to get us our dream home against all odds!!! Throughout the process he was very kind and patient as it took over 6 months to obtain the home. He would take time out of his busy schedule to accomodate us at all costs. An agent like this will not let you down!!"



"It was a great pleasure working with Paul. He is very professional-- and extremely knowledgeable I told him what I was looking for-- and where and he did a fantastic job getting me into a townhouse in Cary. Paul is very detail oriented never missing anything-- or leaving any questions unanswered. I would HIGHLY recommend Paul to anyone-- and would definitely recommend him to friends and family"



"Paul was wonderful to work with! He was very informative and helpful in our seach for our 1st house. We bought our dream home with his help. I would recommend him to anyone!"



"We were first time home buyers and did not know very much about real estate until we met Paul Dimmick. Our experience with Paul Dimmick was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable, informative and prompt. We looked at several homes and had tons of questions that Paul answered honestly and correctly every time! We will recommend Paul to eveyone that we know because he went above and beyond every other realtor in the business!!!!

Dave & Erin"



"Paul was wonderful to work with. He was very helpful, honest, reliable, patient and knew exactly what we were looking for. I had a great experience buying my single family home and he even suggested a great lender and real estate attorney to work with as well. I will highly recommend his services to anyone who is in need of a realtor."



"We met Paul by chance when we went to see a house we found online. That house was not for us, but good thing we went to see it because we met Paul. After talking to him a little bit about what we were looking for he was eager to help and offered to work with us to find the perfect house. We had never purchased a house before, so everything was a bit foreign to us. Right off the bat Paul was extremely helpful. We were having difficulties with our loan and he suggested a different company that he had experienced working with before. Paul was always really honest with us throughout our whole process. He was knowledgeable about all things houses and was able to point out possible repairs and future expenses for houses. We felt as though he was really looking out for us and guiding us in the right direction.
It didn’t take long for us to fall in love with our house and Paul was great at helping us make an offer and even made himself available when we needed to see it just one more time! He even suggested a lawyer when we had no idea where to begin to find a good one.
Our short sale process was not an easy one. It was 11 months of waiting and a lot of back and forth from the banks. Paul could not have been more helpful at this point. Whenever we needed an update, he was already on it! He responded quickly to all of our questions and was always honest and straightforward with us. Whatever we needed he was right there, even when we needed to see more house just in case. Thanks to Paul, we are now proud homeowners to a home we will love for a long time and could not be happier."



"I have worked with several real estate agents over the years and Paul is by far the best.
In August 2012 we sought out a real estate agent who could just show us homes (we weren't ready to buy at the time - we just wanted to scout out areas). Paul got back to us immediately and was more enthusiastic about the process than we were!
I am admittedly an extremely picky person and I was looking for the house where I plan to stay for the long haul. Paul was very patient throughout the whole process. We looked at countless homes and, unlike other agents, Paul never pressured us to buy something we didn't want. He listened very carefully to our needs, objectively pointed out pros and cons with each house, and we ended up finding a house well within our price range that was exactly what we wanted.
Paul also handled the selling of our condo. He priced it properly, marketed it well, and handled the negotiation perfectly. We ended up getting several offers within five days of listing the property and sold within a few thousand dollars of our asking price.
Paul is the consummate professional. He truly cares about the satisfaction of the customer. I give Paul Dimmick my highest recommendation possible for a real estate agent."



"Paul was extremly helpful through the entire process. He always took time out of his busy day to answer any of my questions or concerns. Since this is my 1st home purchase, I needed a little guidance & Paul was there every step of the way. When I was ready to put in my 1st offer, Paul guided me as to what would be reasonable. But he also took into consideration my budget, & what I was confortable with. He also guided me through the process when I had a counter offer on the table & what to expect. Paul is very knowledgeable when it comes to short sales, foreclosures, & regular sales. He helped me decided what was in my best interest & what to expect if I decided to put an offer on them. He would even stop by my place of work to pick up paperwork when needed. I would highly recommend Paul if any one is purchasing or selling their home!!! He is the best realtor out there!!!"



"Absolutely amazing to work with. I would recommend Paul to every person purchasing or selling. He will do everything he can to help and will be there whenever needed. Our previous realtor gave up on my specific requests and Paul met alll of our requests. This was my first home purchase and glad he was there to help. When we wanted to go and view the property again he would make sure it was the same day and at time same hour. Thank you Paul."



"As a first time homebuyer, Paul made the whole process easy and pain free. Responded to any questions that I had immediately. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to purchase/sell their home."



"Highly recommend Paul, he is not at all pushy and when we found some homes with problems he was not shy about telling me what he saw and why I should avoid them.

I actually have a funny story. Unbeknownst to us, the first home I saw with Paul was partially flooded on the outside but I wanted to take a look inside. To avoid wading through a deep puddle, Paul had to throw a big log into the water, jump to the log and then onto the front porch and then open up front door to the house - a slightly risky maneuver that I myself was not willing to take despite being in fairly decent shape. Paul made the jumps flawlessly and was able to let me in the back door!"



"Paul was so wonderful to work with and got us into a great house. We had high expectations and he exceeded all of them. He even sold our townhouse for more than we thought we could get for it in a cash deal. We love our new house and will definitely be referring Paul to our friends. Besides his professional knowledge, Paul also gave us so much information about how the process of moving works which made everything so easy."



"Paul is the realtor you need! Where do I even begin!!! Our house hunting process last two years, Paul was with us on the whole journey providing support through the misses, information during the "breaks" and countless Saturdays combing the inventory. He came with us down every rabbit hole and helped put us where we wanted to be- before we even knew it! Through the whole thing, which was slow torture to my husband, Paul was rooting for the cause and guiding us to the end result- which is our new lovely perfect home! That was just the process of finding it, once we were in the actual steps of making it happen, Paul made it so easy. He really took care of everything, followed through on all the details, got us great resources, at fair prices and before I knew it, it was over...we just bought our first home! Wow that was easy, thanks to Paul and his top notch service, professionalism, and open honest communication. He checks all boxes!"



"Paul would make him self available on any day I was available. He truly went above and beyond to make us happy! I would recommend him to anyone looking, and I will be using him for all my future sales/purchases."



"Paul was very professional and timely. I appreciated his ability to meet us around our schedule whenever we needed too. He was helpful and listened to what our needs were and didn't waste out time in showing us homes he knew we would not be interested in. He was quick to submit offers and documents to us and sellers that we needed. He was prompt at responding to all interactions on both parties. I would and have highly recommended him to friends!"



"We relied on Paul through the arduous process of selling our home, when my husband's job was relocated out of state. We were able to trust him with the timing, negotiation and execution of so many details that were involved. He was always available to check things and re-assure us and keep things on track. His anticipation of what should happen and when, was proven time and again to be "spot on" throughout the process. Even though we had to manage the sale long distance, we felt comfortable leaving things in his honest and capable hands. We definitely recommend him highly."



"Paul is very professional and helped me a great deal with a short sale while I was going through a messy divorce. The home was sold and kept out of foreclosure. He got showing and offers going very quickly."



"My wife and I began the search for our first home and gave Paul a call based on previous Zillow reviews. He met us the very next day, and we had a signed contract within 3 days. Paul was everything you could want in a realtor. His knowledge base was expansive, there was never a question we had that he did not know the answer too. His punctuality and responsiveness were superb. He would answer or reply to every call or text within the hour, and that's at all hours of the night. And best of all, he is someone you would want to include in your house search. You end up spending a lot of time with your realtor during the process, and Paul was someone I looked forward to spending time with.

I would like to add one more quick point that might not necessarily reflect on Paul's job as a realtor, but is still a giant bonus. All of his contacts were just as good as him and were also all great to work with. We ended up using Paul's mortgage broker and his home inspector references and could not have been any happier with either of them as well."



"Paul was amazing to work with. He always made everything work with our hectic schedules and got back to us right away when we contacted him. If you're looking for a professional realtor that works hard FOR YOU, I highly recommend Paul to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!"



"Once again, Paul does not disappoint. We first met Paul while shopping for a townhouse/condo rental. 3 years later my wife and I decided to start a family and we needed to find a house to grow into. Right away i knew to call Paul. Within 15 minutes after our conversation i had already gotten emails of available properties in our target area. He is an all around great guy. Smart, funny, personable. Very, very knowledgeable in the real estate industry and it's ins and outs. He quickly responds to calls/emails/texts, and will always meet you for showings no matter what time it is or how short of notice it is. I would never hesitate to refer Paul to anyone who is searching for real estate needs. As stressful as the home searching process is, he always knows what to say to put your mind at ease when you think you lost out on the "dream house." But another one comes along, and he is right there with you every step of the way until you finally close on that next "dream house." You can tell that the reason why he is in this business is to see the look on our faces when he knows that he helped find that place we now call home. Throughout our experience, he went from being our realtor to quickly becoming our friend. Thank you Paul!"



"It is with sincere pleasure and gratitude I share comments regarding my experience with Paul Dimmick in the sale of my townhome. This being my first home sale experience, Paul greatly aided in the process with his knowledge, quick responsiveness, and multi-faceted marketing approach. Paul accurately assessed the market, then promptly developed a strong and effective plan that generated an offer and contract within eight days! Paul provided ongoing feedback and regular communication about the status of potential buyers, and worked tirelessly to produce positive results. His skills brought a higher selling price and lower costs than I could have obtained anywhere else.

I would highly recommend Paul and could have not asked for a better experience."



"Paul impressed us over and over again during our home buying and selling process. We connected with Paul when we saw his information on a Zillow listing. We had just started talking about listing our home and decided to contact him about seeing a property. From the moment we met Paul we knew we wanted to work with him. He helped us sell our current home and buy our new one. He was prompt, precise & knowledgeable. He was easy to reach and typically got back to us within minutes of an email, text message or phone call. He is a lifelong resident of Fox River Grove, so his knowledge of the area is truly unbeatable. Paul did an AMAZING job selling our home. His suggested list price was a pleasant surprise for us. The home had multiple offers within 2 weeks of being on the market. Paul also made buying our new home easy. He helped us decide on an initial offer price, and guided us through the negotiation process. If you're buying or selling a home in the Crystal Lake, Cary, Fox River Grove or Barrington area - Paul is your guy."



"Paul went over and beyond for us, and crafted solutions that helped us get into our new home. He did a complete analysis of the real estate market in our area, and was flexible in his thinking when circumstances changed. He was available to talk, even at any times at night. He also was pragmatic and gave us straight and honest answers, even when it was not the best news. His knowledge about short sales came in handy with our purchase, and his contractor contacts were helpful and spot on. He is an agent who is forthright and can be trusted.

I would recommend Paul to anyone who asked, and will use him again when the situation arises I am in need of a great agent."



"I contacted Paul to rent my home in Hoffman Estates. Paul was extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond in providing his professional services. I will definitely contact him again for all my real estate needs."



"Words cannot not express the appreciation and gratitude we feel towards Paul and his incredible team of referrals!! From day one, Paul's commitment and professionalism made us feel at peace knowing our home would sell and it was in great hands!! Five days later we signed a contract!!! Paul made himself available at all hours of every day during our house hunting and ultimately our purchase. Through an extremely stressful and anxious time of selling, purchasing, closings, and moving, Paul made us feel we were his only clients. Not only did Paul become our realtor, he became a friend, and I will forever refer him to anyone who is looking to sell and/or purchase a home!

P. Rakiewicz"



"He made sure everything was done to my satisfaction. Stayed on top of things and kept me updated every step of the way. Great personality and a very smart realtor. Love doing business with him."



"Paul did a fantastic job with the sale of our condo. With us being out of state he even rushed right when the power went out to make sure the pipes didn't freeze. I'll recommend him to everyone I know in the area."



"I have to say paul is one great broker love working with him. Always on top of his game. fast response to all phone,text's and emails. You can't go wrong with paul.."



"Paul is great at what he does. I don't know anybody that can sell a house in 24hrs. Paul handled everything that was needed for closing that I could not provide. Thank you Paul !"



"Paul was great he walked us thru the whole process of selling our home and finding us another home. He is very knowledgeable about the things you need to do to get ready to sell your home. He isalso very knowledgeable at looking and finding potential problems at the houses we considered buying until we found the right house that we purchased. He made this whole process easy for us and it was enjoyable working with him. I would recommend Paul to anyone considering selling or buying a new house. This was the fourth time I have sold and bought a house and and he was the best real estate agent I have ever worked with."



"We found Paul at an open house he was hosting in the area we were looking to buy in. He was excited to help us with our search even though we were not interested in the house he was selling. Paul quickly set us up with showings of other homes in the area and was not afraid to give his honest opinion on the home and its value. We felt very comfortable working with him and moving forward with our home purchase. Throughout the process, he was quick to respond to emails and set up appointments as needed. He even covered an extra cost for us to have our inspector come out to investigate the roof before a snow storm. We definitely appreciated the extra efforts from Paul!"



"Paul was extremely helpful and accessible during our search to find a home. His knowledge about what to look for in a home, judgement on condition of homes we were viewing, and thoughts about worthwhile improvements was invaluable."



"Paul Dimmick did a wonderful job showing us houses and explaining information that we asked as first time home buyers. Paul was prompt in his replies and knew the in's and out's of the realty business. He gave great suggestions and after seeing 50+ houses over 4 months he definitely knew what we like and knew what we didn't like. He stayed enthusiastic about the entire process, even though we started to get a little frustrated. I appreciated that and it made the journey much more enjoyable. I recommend using Paul with @ properties if you have realty needs."



"Paul was great to work with! He is a very effective communicator and negotiator. Paul exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."



"Paul and the Cary-Grove team did an outstanding job. From an initial market analysis, consult on marketing plan and timing, photo and web presentation of our house to negotiation and closing details we were blown away. Every question we had was greeted with professionalism in a timely and responsive way. Thanks!"



"Paul has been, and always will be my go-to when it comes to home dealings. Always professional and always straight-up with his information. I've never dealt with a better broker in the industry."



"Paul came highly recommended by a family member and he did not disappoint! He went above and beyond to help us sell. We cannot say enough good things about him. Thank you Paul for your expert care and advice!"



"This was our 3rd house sale and has been the best experience of all. Paul did a great job explaining the process, was always extremely responsive and his solid understanding of the market helped us to price it right. Professional pictures also drove a lot of traffic leading to a quick contract. I highly recommend Paul and @properties if you need to sell your house!"



"Our realtor Paul Dimmek did wonderful job selling our home. We would not hesitate to use Paul again and would recommend him highly."



"Very professional and caring. I'm so happy to have found a place to call home. Paul has made my experience of buying a home not only enjoyable but memorable! Thank you!"



"Once again, Paul comes through in the clutch and hits a home run. Probably the best broker I've ever had the pleasure of working with."



"Paul made selling as painless as possible. He was right there any time we needed him."



"We sold within 1 week. That itself is amazing. Thank you"



"Very friendly cares about your happiness in your purchase all around nice guy"



"Very knowledgeable, responsive and great to work with."



"Paul was referred to us by a friend and we were very pleased. He really helped us a lot with the process of renting our home. We never did anything like that before and he was right there with answers to all our questions and he followed the whole process through to the end. I feel if I needed anything I could call him with no problem. I would recommend Paul to my friends and clients."



"Professionalism does not even begin to describe Paul. He is one of a kind in this business. He helped my fiancé and I find our first home together, and was nothing but kind and helpful during our search. After losing out on an initial property we found, he kept our spirits up and our hopes high until we ultimately found a better property to settle into that we love and now call home. Always ready at a phone call's notice, always ready with the information needed, and always willing to go that extra mile for his clients. That's Paul Dimmick, and I encourage you to use his services for all your real estate needs!"



"Paul's ability to listen to what was important to me and then match it up with listings was fabulous. The homes we visited allowed me to see what was available within my price range and eventually we found a home perfect for me in terms of price, location, and the type of home. I would definitely use Paul's services as a realtor again."



"Paul was very helpful and supportive to both myself and my family. He helped us find a home to live in very quickly and put our needs in front of our wants. I would highly recommend Paul and will seek him out again when I have a need for a home in the future."



"Paul is EXCELLENT to work with. He had originally set up a showing for us to see the house the day after our first phone conversation. When he called to set up the showing with the broker and found out that this house was very popular, he immediately got us in to see the house. He went out of his way to help us with the offer, and directed us with wonderful expertise to an offer that got us the house! Paul has always been very quick to respond to phone calls, emails and text messages, even ones that have not been of dire importance. It was a joy to use Paul as our buyers realtor and we look forward to using him as our listing agent also"



"Working with Paul was an extreme pleasure. If you're looking for someone who is going to make you feel comfortable with the decision-making process of finding a home - Paul is your guy. Very easy to work with, extremely organized!"



"I have been searching for a property since last year, and found Paul through Zillow. Paul was able to provide listings suitable to my criteria through MLS and highly recommended this property because it fits my criteria and at a great price. After visiting several similarly priced homes I chose the one he recommended because of location, features and price. I have some knowledge about real estate and found Paul to be very honest throughout the buying process and always explains everything a buyer should expect. BTW, I used mortgage broker Andrew Trassat from Wells Fargo, who is in the same building as Paul, I was able to get rate of 3.5% on a 15 year, where my bank-Chase wanted 3.875%. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase, and buying process was pleasant. A+++++ Realtor, would highly recommend!"



"Despite the baby face, Paul knows his stuff and has the abilities of someone with many more years under their belt. His negotiation skills and insight into the home buying process are why we were able to land the house we now call home. Based upon his advice during a tense negotiation, we were able to outbid the other potential buyer due to a strategy that was all Paul's idea. Paul uses his roots in the far northwest suburbs to allow him to provide insight into not only the quality of schools, but the overall health of a community. Also, Paul's recommendations for attorney and home inspector should be considered as well since I was pleasantly surprised by both individuals. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for a new home!"



"I have bought and sold 4 houses and Paul Dimmick is by far the Best Real Estate Agent I have worked with. He is extremely knowledgeable and at the end of the day I felt satisfied that he not only had my best interest in sight, but treated the whole process like it was his own purchase. I will definitely be using his services again and HIGHLY recommend to anyone reading this to give him a call."



"Paul was very helpful and prompt. Without his expertise, I don't think I would have my house. He made the experience as easy as it can be. If I am ever going to buy another house, I am going to use Paul again. I highly recommend him as a Realtor."



"It was a great pleasure working with Paul. He is very professional-- and extremely knowledgeable I told him what I was looking for-- and where and he did a fantastic job getting me into a townhouse in Cary. Paul is very detail oriented never missing anything-- or leaving any questions unanswered. I would HIGHLY recommend Paul to anyone-- and would definitely recommend him to friends and family."



"Paul was extremely knowledgeable and professional in finding us a new home. We must have looked at over 20 houses and Paul was able to get us our dream home against all odds!!! Throughout the process he was very kind and patient as it took over 6 months to obtain the home. He would take time out of his busy schedule to accommodate us at all costs. An agent like this will not let you down!!"



"We were first time home buyers and did not know very much about real estate until we met Paul Dimmick. Our experience with Paul was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable, informative and prompt. We looked at several homes and had tons of questions that Paul answered honestly and correctly every time! We will recommend Paul to everyone that we know because he went above and beyond every other realtor in the business!!!!"



"Paul was wonderful to work with. He was very helpful, honest, reliable, patient and knew exactly what we were looking for. I had a great experience buying my single family home and he even suggested a great lender and real estate attorney to work with as well. I will highly recommend his services to anyone who is in need of a realtor."



"We met Paul by chance when we went to see a house we found online. That house was not for us, but good thing we went to see it because we met Paul. After talking to him a little bit about what we were looking for he was eager to help and offered to work with us to find the perfect house. We had never purchased a house before, so everything was a bit foreign to us. Right off the bat Paul was extremely helpful. We were having difficulties with our loan and he suggested a different company that he had experienced working with before. Paul was always really honest with us throughout our whole process. He was knowledgeable about all things houses and was able to point out possible repairs and future expenses for houses. We felt as though he was really looking out for us and guiding us in the right direction. It didnt take long for us to fall in love with our house and Paul was great at helping us make an offer and even made himself available when we needed to see it just one more time! He even suggested a lawyer when we had no idea where to begin to find a good one. Our short sale process was not an easy one. It was 11 months of waiting and a lot of back and forth from the banks. Paul could not have been more helpful at this point. Whenever we needed an update, he was already on it! He responded quickly to all of our questions and was always honest and straightforward with us. Whatever we needed he was right there, even when we needed to see more house just in case. Thanks to Paul, we are now proud homeowners to a home we will love for a long time and could not be happier."



"I have worked with several real estate agents over the years and Paul is by far the best. In August 2012 we sought out a real estate agent who could just show us homes (we weren't ready to buy at the time - we just wanted to scout out areas). Paul got back to us immediately and was more enthusiastic about the process than we were! I am admittedly an extremely picky person and I was looking for the house where I plan to stay for the long haul. Paul was very patient throughout the whole process. We looked at countless homes and, unlike other agents, Paul never pressured us to buy something we didn't want. He listened very carefully to our needs, objectively pointed out pros and cons with each house, and we ended up finding a house well within our price range that was exactly what we wanted. Paul also handled the selling of our condo. He priced it properly, marketed it well, and handled the negotiation perfectly. We ended up getting several offers within five days of listing the property and sold within a few thousand dollars of our asking price. Paul is the consummate professional. He truly cares about the satisfaction of the customer. I give Paul Dimmick my highest recommendation possible for a real estate agent"



"Paul was extremly helpful through the entire process. He always took time out of his busy day to answer any of my questions or concerns. Since this is my 1st home purchase, I needed a little guidance & Paul was there every step of the way. When I was ready to put in my 1st offer, Paul guided me as to what would be reasonable. But he also took into consideration my budget, & what I was confortable with. He also guided me through the process when I had a counter offer on the table & what to expect. Paul is very knowledgeable when it comes to short sales, foreclosures, & regular sales. He helped me decided what was in my best interest & what to expect if I decided to put an offer on them. He would even stop by my place of work to pick up paperwork when needed. I would highly recommend Paul if anyone is purchasing or selling their home!!! He is the best realtor out there!!!"



"Absolutely amazing to work with. I would recommend Paul to every person purchasing or selling. He will do everything he can to help and will be there whenever needed. Our previous realtor gave up on my specific requests and Paul met alll of our requests. This was my first home purchase and glad he was there to help. When we wanted to go and view the property again he would make sure it was the same day and at time same hour. Thank you Paul."



"As a first time homebuyer, Paul made the whole process easy and pain free. Responded to any questions that I had immediately. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to purchase/sell their home"



"If you're looking for a professional but also down to earth agent, look no further than Paul. Whether its a phone call, email or in-person contact, Paul always is an incredibly responsive agent who is looking out for right fit for his clients. He was willing to find time to visit homes on vastly different times and days of the week. He helps to serve as a guide for his clients while not making the decision for them. Being a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and Paul patiently answered all of these. Aside from being a great agent, you can tell that Paul is genuinely a good guy and like having him involved in your search. I have nothing bad to say - you will be very happy if you enlist Paul's expertise."



"Paul was so wonderful to work with and got us into a great house. We had high expectations and he exceeded all of them. He even sold our townhouse for more than we thought we could get for it in a cash deal. We love our new house and will definitely be referring Paul to our friends. Besides his professional knowledge, Paul also gave us so much information about how the process of moving works which made everything so easy."



"Paul would make him self available on any day I was available. He truly went above and beyond to make us happy! I would recommend him to anyone looking, and I will be using him for all my future sales/purchases."



"Paul was very professional and timely. I appreciated his ability to meet us around our schedule whenever we needed too. He was helpful and listened to what our needs were and didn't waste out time in showing us homes he knew we would not be interested in. He was quick to submit offers and documents to us and sellers that we needed. He was prompt at responding to all interactions on both parties. I would and have highly recommended him to friends!"



"We relied on Paul through the arduous process of selling our home, when my husband's job was relocated out of state. We were able to trust him with the timing, negotiation and execution of so many details that were involved. He was always available to check things and re-assure us and keep things on track. His anticipation of what should happen and when, was proven time and again to be "spot on" throughout the process. Even though we had to manage the sale long distance, we felt comfortable leaving things in his honest and capable hands. We definitely recommend him highly."



"Paul is very professional and helped me a great deal with a short sale while I was going through a messy divorce. The home was sold and kept out of foreclosure. He got showing and offers going very quickly."



"My wife and I began the search for our first home and gave Paul a call based on previous Zillow reviews. He met us the very next day, and we had a signed contract within 3 days. Paul was everything you could want in a realtor. His knowledge base was expansive, there was never a question we had that he did not know the answer too. His punctuality and responsiveness were superb. He would answer or reply to every call or text within the hour, and that's at all hours of the night. And best of all, he is someone you would want to include in your house search. You end up spending a lot of time with your realtor during the process, and Paul was someone I looked forward to spending time with. I would like to add one more quick point that might not necessarily reflect on Paul's job as a realtor, but is still a giant bonus. All of his contacts were just as good as him and were also all great to work with. We ended up using Paul's mortgage broker and his home inspector references and could not have been any happier with either of them as well."



"Paul was amazing to work with. He always made everything work with our hectic schedules and got back to us right away when we contacted him. If you're looking for a professional realtor that works hard FOR YOU, I highly recommend Paul to anyone looking to buy or sell a house"



"Once again, Paul does not disappoint. We first met Paul while shopping for a townhouse/condo rental. 3 years later my wife and I decided to start a family and we needed to find a house to grow into. Right away i knew to call Paul. Within 15 minutes after our conversation i had already gotten emails of available properties in our target area. He is an all around great guy. Smart, funny, personable. Very, very knowledgeable in the real estate industry and it's ins and outs. He quickly responds to calls/emails/texts, and will always meet you for showings no matter what time it is or how short of notice it is. I would never hesitate to refer Paul to anyone who is searching for real estate needs. As stressful as the home searching process is, he always knows what to say to put your mind at ease when you think you lost out on the "dream house." But another one comes along, and he is right there with you every step of the way until you finally close on that next "dream house." You can tell that the reason why he is in this business is to see the look on our faces when he knows that he helped find that place we now call home. Throughout our experience, he went from being our realtor to quickly becoming our friend. Thank you Paul!"



"It is with sincere pleasure and gratitude I share comments regarding my experience with Paul Dimmick in the sale of my townhome. This being my first home sale experience, Paul greatly aided in the process with his knowledge, quick responsiveness, and multi-faceted marketing approach. Paul accurately assessed the market, then promptly developed a strong and effective plan that generated an offer and contract within eight days! Paul provided ongoing feedback and regular communication about the status of potential buyers, and worked tirelessly to produce positive results. His skills brought a higher selling price and lower costs than I could have obtained anywhere else.I would highly recommend Paul and could have not asked for a better experience."



"Paul impressed us over and over again during our home buying and selling process. We connected with Paul when we saw his information on a Zillow listing. We had just started talking about listing our home and decided to contact him about seeing a property. From the moment we met Paul we knew we wanted to work with him. He helped us sell our current home and buy our new one. He was prompt, precise & knowledgeable. He was easy to reach and typically got back to us within minutes of an email, text message or phone call. He is a lifelong resident of Fox River Grove, so his knowledge of the area is truly unbeatable. Paul did an AMAZING job selling our home. His suggested list price was a pleasant surprise for us. The home had multiple offers within 2 weeks of being on the market. Paul also made buying our new home easy. He helped us decide on an initial offer price, and guided us through the negotiation process. If you're buying or selling a home in the Crystal Lake, Cary, Fox River Grove or Barrington area - Paul is your guy."



"Paul went over and beyond for us, and crafted solutions that helped us get into our new home. He did a complete analysis of the real estate market in our area, and was flexible in his thinking when circumstances changed. He was available to talk, even at any times at night. He also was pragmatic and gave us straight and honest answers, even when it was not the best news. His knowledge about short sales came in handy with our purchase, and his contractor contacts were helpful and spot on. He is an agent who is forthright and can be trusted.I would recommend Paul to anyone who asked, and will use him again when the situation arises I am in need of a great agent."



"I contacted Paul to rent my home in Hoffman Estates. Paul was extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond in providing his professional services. I will definitely contact him again for all my real estate needs."



"Words cannot not express the appreciation and gratitude we feel towards Paul and his incredible team of referrals!! From day one, Paul's commitment and professionalism made us feel at peace knowing our home would sell and it was in great hands!! Five days later we signed a contract!!! Paul made himself available at all hours of every day during our house hunting and ultimately our purchase. Through an extremely stressful and anxious time of selling, purchasing, closings, and moving, Paul made us feel we were his only clients. Not only did Paul become our realtor, he became a friend, and I will forever refer him to anyone who is looking to sell and/or purchase a home!"



"Paul is the realtor you need! Where do I even begin!!! Our house hunting process last two years, Paul was with us on the whole journey providing support through the misses, information during the "breaks" and countless Saturdays combing the inventory. He came with us down every rabbit hole and helped put us where we wanted to be- before we even knew it! Through the whole thing, which was slow torture to my husband, Paul was rooting for the cause and guiding us to the end result- which is our new lovely perfect home! That was just the process of finding it, once we were in the actual steps of making it happen, Paul made it so easy. He really took care of everything, followed through on all the details, got us great resources, at fair prices and before I knew it, it was over...we just bought our first home! Wow that was easy, thanks to Paul and his top notch service, professionalism, and open honest communication. He checks all boxes!"



"We really enjoyed working with Paul for a number of reasons! He was always available to help us when we had questions and was very flexible with regard to making time and working around our work schedules and other activities. He knows the Barrington area well and understood what we were looking for in our first home search. Keeping in mind that we were looking for our first home, he made the process quick and easy for us to understand and follow...from paperwork to negotiations to looking for potential issues within different properties. We were definitely on a budget and he did an excellent job of sending us listings and showing us homes that were within our financial reach. Most importantly, Paul is a nice, honest, and knowledgeable guy that always had our best interests in mind. My wife and I will absolutely be recommending Paul to friends and family. We love our new home! Thanks Paul!!!"



"Buying OR selling, Paul is your guy! Paul's knowledge of the market and pool of resources helped us to quickly sell and purchase. He went above and beyond to ensure we were knowledgable about the market ourselves. He always kept us in the loop and was very quick to personally respond to our comments or concerns. His team at Remax were great communicators and made scheduling showings effortless. Most importantly, Paul treated us like family. We gained a new home and a friend along the way. Thanks Paul!"



"We would have been lost without Paul. He was amazing in every aspect. So knowledgeable and was there for us every step. Paul made it very easy to set up appinotments to view homes. He was accessible each and every time I contacted him and tended to our needs accurately. Paul also provided outstanding contacts for our loan officer and lawyer. Like I said, we would have been lost without him."



"We are so very thankful for Paul and everything that he did to help us find the perfect first home! We had no idea what we were doing and Paul helped us through every step of the buying process. He was so easy to get a hold of, and prompt at showing us places. Paul is honest, hardworking and a total joy to work with. We feel as though we have made a new friend in Paul and cannot wait to work with him again in the future. You will not regret working with Paul!"



"Paul initially assisted me with my relocation to the Chicagoland area from Pennsylvania in early 2015 and finding a rental home property to lease. He was always responsive and personable; I was always confident that he was consistently working in my best interests. We promptly found a property that suited my family's needs, and Paul and I stay connected, luckily enough. The rental property lease for other reasons was only going to work for a one year term, so quickly I reached out to Paul to help us locate a home to purchase before the end of the lease. Paul moved quickly to arrange homes to visit meeting our criteria and price range, and after the first weekend touring homes, we found the ONE. Paul helped us review the comps and negotiate a price for an offer, and after negotiations, we were successful in getting the home we wanted. Throughout the entire process, Paul kept us fully informed and provided effective communications on the purchase process here in IL. We just closed on the property yesterday, and I am happy to say I would gladly recommend Paul to others who are looking for a quality realtor to meet your real estate needs of any kind."



"Words alone are insufficient to express the professionalism, dedication and unwavering support of what I would say is the greatest realtor I have ever been in contact with. He has guided us through two purchases & one sale. Paul sincerely listened to our needs and wants to find the right home(s) and wisely advised through the negotiation process. My first purchase was a short sale which needless to say requires a knowledgeable and fervent realtor. The sale was nothing less than a roller coaster ride mostly due to issues out of our control but Paul proved his tenacity and went the extra mile (plus) to close the sale. Combine him w/ an equally awesome attorney, Courtney Clark, and trust me- you will not be disappointed"



"Paul is professional and listens to your requests. He helped us look all over to find our dream home. He went well out of his way for us and has also found tenants for our condo that we rent out"
