    My Client Testimonials

    When you need a realtor, hire Paula. She is completely professional and knows her business. Moving was utterly stressful for me, and Paula was patient, kind and caring. Her advice was spot-on. She listened to me, paid attention to my concerns and always, always, always acted in my best interests. I now live in a house that I absolutely love and in a community that has been warm and welcoming. I will be forever grateful to her. Heather Michaels
    Some of my neighbors are talking about downsizing so, of course, I will recommend you. Incidentally, I have heard nothing but good things about you from several church friends who live in Sun City. Ken
    Paula really did a good job for us. We started looking in Sun City about two years before we were really ready to make the move and Paula kept us abreast of the market and showed us homes the entire time. When we were finally ready to purchase, she knew what we wanted and found it for us. The negotiations and "close' were about as painless as these things can be. Paula is knowledgeable about her business and knows the Lincoln Hills area very well. She is patient, good natured and understands the stress these deals can put people under. It is unlikely we will be doing another real estate deal for the foreseeable future because we really like our home, but if we did, Paula would be our first phone call. - Wayne Buchanan
    Karen and I enjoyed working with you to find this home to lease out. Our friend was right when she recommended you and said we would like you. We, too, will recommend you. Gary and Karen
    Paula, you're amazing. You've hung in there all these months and I'm so grateful. Karen O.
    My wife Judy and I first met Paula in 2016. At the time we were exploring places to move to once Judy retired. We told Paula that we were looking into a number of different options and were no ready to make a move of any kind for a year or more. Paula was very understanding and did not have an attitude about that. We patiently showed us a number of places in Sun City Lincoln Hills and the surrounding area. For over six months, we didn't find a place that we truly liked, but Paula still patiently and without an attitude continued searching for us. Ultimately, we found a place and Paula was able to negotiate a great price for us. Despite our anxious desire to offer a price over and above the asking price, Paula advised us to the contrary. Obviously this affected her commission, but as a professional and one who truly cares for her clients she took this action. This is the mark of a professional who will look after your best interest. - Ron Jung
    When you and your friends need a realtor, call Paula Nelson. She is the best of the best — responsive, caring, concerned and a great listener. She will pay attention to your needs and go the extra 200 miles to meet them. I will always be grateful for her help, wisdom and advice when I bought my home. - Heather
    I've worked with Paula on multiple real estate transactions over the last 8 years. Paula is quick to respond, focused on her work, answers all my questions, and pays attention to every detail. Thank you for always being on top of your game Paula!! - John Ussery
    It was such a pleasure to work with Paula. She represents the true professional in the Real Estate Business. The dedication and hard work she put in to make the sale of our home a success was appreciated. - Don Lloyd
    Paula represented me in the purchase of a home and was delightful throughout the entire process. Paula is a true professional and enjoyable to work with. Paula knows the local real estate market and would be an incredible asset to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. I highly recommend Paula! - Kay Armstrong
    Paula sold my house quickly. She helped me to get the house painted, staged, the yard cleaned up, etc. Once the house went into escrow, Paula got all of the buyers' requests handled and inspection repair requests done. I didn't have to do much of anything once the house went into escrow. Paula has the resources to find potential buyers and she has good home service providers. She sold my house, escrow closed less than 2 months after it went on the market, and this is during COVID-19 and it's an age restricted community. - Joanne Woodward
    Paula was always professional, extremely responsive to both phone calls, email and texts. Paula was always on time to any of our meetings. And quick to provide experts to help with any issues that would arise. Paula is definitely an expert in her field. - Shannon Farran
    Paula Nelson is an amazing realtor. During the Covid epidemic and fires she just kept on going and worked hard to help us find a house. I would recommend using Paula as your realtor.

    I have worked with Paula on a professional level and have been very happy throughout the process. - Richard Carlson

    From the beginning of the process thru the end, Paula did a tremendous job. She was very prompt for our numerous appointments, both in finding me the perfect house and thru out the whole closing process.

    Paula was one of the best agents that I have worked with in purchasing a home. Her responsiveness was unbelievable. I'd hit the send button and my phone would ring, and it would be Paula answering my questions. She was honest when answering questions about different properties. I never felt that she was pushing me to a any certain house. Paula is a true professional and I greatly appreciate her. - Diane Bergeron

    Paula Nelson just completed our 6th transaction! Her expertise, attention to detail, communication has been impeccable-representing my interests in both buyer and seller situations. She consistently gave the right advice, and frankly, enabled high financial returns. - Rachel LaForest
    My parents recently relocated to Sun City after more than 40 years in the same house. Paula is a Lincoln Hills expert and made my parents feel very comfortable during the process. Not only did we love working with Paula, but we also were impressed with those she chooses to work with, such as the home inspector, painter and general contractor. She is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure things are done properly and quickly. I also love knowing that we can always count on her for the answer to any question or problem we have! Update: My parents have now decided to move two blocks away from us. Paula helped us be the winning offer in one of the most difficult buyers markets ever. We are grateful that we had her on our side in this crazy market. She's one of the hardest workers I've ever met...Thank you Paula! - thedaleylife
    Paula represented me recently on a real estate transaction in Lincoln. She worked hard to get my business and kept in touch every step of the way. She is the consummate professional and I highly recommend her and Coldwell Banker. She offers decades of experience coupled with the constant training CB provides their agents so they are always up to date both legally and in the market. Paula is on top of every detail and deadline so that nothing falls through the cracks. She works hard for her clients and I have the utmost confidence in her care.

    Working with Paula was a real joy. She is extremely knowledgeable about the entire process, super responsive, and she basically held our hand throughout our recent second home purchase. Paula was also very flexible and advised us on how to handle certain aspects of the purchase. We had a relatively quick turnaround on our transaction, and she made it happen! We would welcome the opportunity to work with Paula again. - Andrea English
    Paula helps you find the home you want and then she makes it happen. We needed our hand held through this process, and she was there holding it, every step of the way. I would give her more stars if I could. - Sandi
    We worked with Paula very closely to find a house we were comfortable with in terms of price, quality, and location. She was professional, responsive, and exceptionally helpful.

    We first met Paula at an Open House she was hosting and after only a few minutes talking with her, we knew she was the person we wanted to help us find our home. Paula was extremely helpful during the search process and once we found our home, she kept us in the loop and helped us decipher all of the paperwork that comes with a real estate transaction. In addition to the real estate process, because we were new to the area, we asked her for referrals for all kinds of trades. She was a wealth of helpful referrals and in every case, the recommendations were exceptional. We highly recommend Paula Nelson for anyone's real estate needs. - Jeff Whitaker
