I don’t think you could ask for a more thoughtful, knowledgable and dedicated real estate agent than Dpaul Brown! He helped us purchase our first home in SF and we couldn’t be more grateful, especially in this crazy market! He was always available to answer the occasional flurry of questions my wife and I would have about the real estate process, which was necessary for us to feel comfortable. He took us out on numerous occasions to look at homes and met us during the work week to tour again if needed.
Dpaul will work at your pace, be it fast one week, slow another or anything in between. He’s really accommodating to the needs of his clients and understands the real estate market thoroughly. You can’t go wrong with this guy.
dpaul came highly recommended from a neighbor of mine when we were going to be selling our property. All honesty, the property was in bad bad shape from years of neglect and lack of maintenance. Well, once we called dpaul he came out and met with us and told us how it was going to go and made some great suggestions and honestly, I was exhausted from cleaning the place out and didn’t want to do anymore and this is where dpaul came in big time because he is heavily connected! He took care of everything! including getting someone in to clean out our backyard and a bunch of other things. He took the extra stress away from us and dealt with it and that to me makes a HUGE difference because he’s not all talk, he will go the extra mile for you. He is an AMAZING person to work with and he cares about San Francisco and it’s neighborhoods and the history. And me being a 5th generation San Franciscan that meant allot to my family and I. I normally don’t have good things to say about realtors, I normally put them in with lawyers, car salesmen and metermaids but I cant even comprehend putting dpaul there. If you are looking to buy or sell a house dpaul is your man. He got us almost $500k OVER asking. Very nice, humble, funny yet extremely professional and I respect that of him. Check him out, you truly wont regret it. He’s an amazing human being and is great at what he does. If you like someone who will be straight and to the point with you and not bullshit you, he’s your guy. Wish I could give him 20 stars lol.
Dpaul helped us with the purchase of our first home about a year and a half ago. It was truly a fantastic experience. Dpaul combines a deep knowledge of SF neighborhoods, an excellent ability to understand the individual needs of his clients, and a willingness to help first-time homebuyers through a very complicated process.
We’re extremely happy in our home, due in a large part to Dpaul’s efforts. I’d recommend Dpaul to anyone looking to buy in SF’s complicated market.
D Paul came recommended to us from mutual friends. From the first telephone call with D Paul we felt we had someone who both listened to us as well as was willing to share his expertise in all the neighborhoods that make up San Francisco. Our first meeting was accompanying D Paul on the Tuesday Brokers tour that gave us exposure to many of the cities neighborhoods. This was critical to confirm that our first, and only choice, was in the Russian Hill / Telegraph Hill / North Beach area. From that time own we kept a narrow focus on that region. D Paul shared his realtor tools access with us as we are pretty hands on with searching out potential homes. But he was always back to us right away whenever anything hit the available list (and we all know how infrequent that can be).
After avoiding several places that were ‘good, but not quite it’ we finally found that one that we would fight for. We had a very tight viewing period and bids were required after only one week. We spent several hours with D Paul reviewing our bid strategy and taking his recommendations that not only was money of the essence, but so was time. Following his lead we put in an offer, over asking of course, but with a 10 day closing.
That sealed the deal! Within hours we were under firm contract and after 10 days our dream condo was ours!
D Paul is professional, friendly, and is (literally) a walking encyclopedia of all things San Francisco. I would not hesitate for a minute to recommend him to anyone searching for the ‘right’ home.
I was introduced to Dpaul from a mutual friend who took my description of what I was looking for in a realtor and matched it to a tee. Dpaul is creative, detail-oriented, market savvy, resourceful, connected, and a good and diplomatic listener. He and the team he assembled to help me fine tune, stage, market, and sell my home were each wonderful and I’m thrilled with the outcome.
He understood the dynamics of my in-flight transaction, good communication, and mutual understanding, and helped me with a good mix of patience, motivation, support, perseverance, humor, and professionalism that helped me yield a good outcome. I highly recommend him.
My only regret is leaving my home in the Mission. It was a gem!
Dpaul is, in every sense of the word, an expert real estate agent.
He just helped us close on our first ever home…in the incredibly tough San Francisco market, no less. On top of that, we purchased a probate property – which includes navigating byzantine state laws. Dpaul approached our unique purchase requirements with extensive, well researched knowledge, incredible attention to detail and most importantly – patience. Many of the people and agencies we dealt with made mistakes along the way, but Dpaul was flawless. It was a massive relief to trust that he always put our interests first and foremost.
It doesn’t hurt that Dpaul has great taste in design and home improvement, as well. He has very recommendable contacts in the mortgage industry, home inspectors, contractors, and more. He’s almost a one stop shop for every facet of real estate!
I wholeheartedly recommend Dpaul for your next real estate transaction. He will make a complicated and often difficult process enjoyable.
Dpaul helped us with the purchase of our first home and I can’t say enough great things about him! My partner and I first came to him with zero knowledge (really less than zero knowledge) about purchasing a home and he walked us through the process from start to finish. He is meticulous, responsive, and tireless in his efforts in trying to find us a home, which in this market on our budget, was no easy task! Not only did he provide great service, but he has a group of folks that he works with regularly and is able to offer recommendations for a mortgage broker or whatever you need. The beauty is that because of these wonderful relationships that he has built, much of the hassle and pain is taken off your shoulders and placed on his. Good for you, maybe not so much for him! The true testament to Dpaul may be summed up when our escrow agent commented, “you two seem so relaxed and calm, most people I see are anxious and nervous when they come to sign their loan documents.” We all attribute this to the work of Dpaul and his power team who prepared us every step of the way! Did I mention that he is super tech savvy too? The only time we had to physically go anywhere and sign a document, was the day we signed our loan documents. So if you’re busy or have a job (FYI – kind of a requirement for buying a home), if you’re a seasoned homebuyer or a clueless newbie like us, dpaul is the perfect agent.
Dpaul’s work ethic is superb, and his attention to detail and follow up is outstanding. Life gets so busy, particularly when you’re buying or selling a property, being able to rely on your agent to gently remind you when you forget, nudge you when you need it and keep you pointed in the right direction to efficiently and successfully navigate through the details, while having fun in the process, is a real gift. Dpaul knows the devil’s in the details and goes out of his way to anticipate and make sure all the details are addressed, so you don’t have to.
And dpaul truly loves San Francisco. His unique knowledge of the city’s history and neighborhoods is fantastic and a huge, huge bonus. Whether you’re new to the city, or a veteran thinking about branching out to a new neighborhood, dpaul will help you consider things you never thought of (but should) and focus on the things that really matter most as you think about buying a new property or positioning an existing property for sale.
High energy but patient, tenacious with a great sense of humor, and as down-to-earth and trustworthy as they come, I would recommend dpaul to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in San Francisco.
“I was truly impressed by his work. I regard him as an extremely knowledgeable, energetic, and skilled. He drives success by listening to his clients. He’s a hybrid-thinker, balancing empathy and creativity, collaboration and highly developed analytical skills. He takes ownership of problems and works aggressively and methodically to deliver optimal solutions. He’s extremely organized, always available to answer questions, and in a deadline-crazy world, he always hits his mark. ”
“dpaul has a keen eye for detail, is a highly effective communicator, and his follow through is consistent and reliable.”
He is bright, creative, articulate, and lives his life from a basis of integrity. His focus and drive combine with his creative and tactical execution skills to make him a formidable and effective achiever. You can count on him to say clearly what he will do, and then do exactly what he says. He gets the job done, and done well.
“I thoroughly enjoyed working with dpaul. He has invaluable enthusiasm, vision and focus. dpaul is one of those unique people who is both creative and strategic.”
