Paul Dumke helped me buy my first home 6 years ago. He was amazing to work with - answering all of our first time buyer questions and guiding us through the process. When it came time to sell my mother's home last year, Paul went well beyond our expectations. He was very professional and responsive, and he was sensitive to the unique needs of our family. I recommend Paul's services very highly and would not hesitate to call him again in the future.
An honest and trustworthy realtor that gets quick results!
The short version:
Paul Dumke; is a seasoned professional; is intimate with the area home market; gets quick results; and, perhaps most importantly, is honest and trustworthy.
The slightly longer version:
After my father passed, his home suddenly became the property of me and my three siblings. Needless to say, four people selling a home creates some complications. That's when Paul Dumke came to the rescue.
Although I live in Texas, my siblings all live in the Buchanan/Baroda area. When we discussed who we should have represent us as a realtor, they immediately chose Paul; they've all known him for years and told me of his stellar reputation. They weren't wrong.
Step one in the sale: Paul looked over the property. He told me what needed to be addressed for the home to meet FHA and VA home loan standards, then he created a short list of changes he would recommend to help the home sell more quickly. Since I don't live in the area, Paul told me where I could buy the items I needed (ground fault isolating outlets, paint, light fixtures, etc.), which brand to buy for the best price, and even what isle to find them in at the store.
Step two: I did what Paul recommended.
Step three: Paul came by, looked over the house, took the listing photos, and posted the listing the next day.
Two hours after Paul posted the listing, the house was sold.
That's worth repeating: Two hours after the listing went up, Paul sold the house. It wasn't that we posted it below market value - my siblings and I all researched the market before determining the price - rather, it was Paul's knowledge of the market and the guidance he provided that made the sale so quick and painless.
It's important to mention that, throughout the entire process, I felt confident that Paul was working purely in the best interest of me and my family. His honesty and integrity are beyond reproach, and I wouldn't hesitate recommending him to anyone in need of a seasoned and highly professional realtor.
Paul was a huge help in getting my home sold quickly. I was trying to sell it from out of state because of a job transfer and he was instrumental in helping assess the property after the renters were out, any needed repairs and following up to make sure the work was completed in a timely manner. Everything was handled quickly and efficiently so the transaction could be completed!
As a first time home buyer, I needed professional help. Paul is knowledgeable in all aspects real estate. He helped us prevent costly and legal mistakes. He worked long hours in our behalf. He handled issues behind the scenes that I did not know existed in real estate. It is because of his professionalism and dedication we were able to buy a beautiful house that we can enjoy for many years to come. In the event if I need to sell, Paul will be my agent.
My name is Linda and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Dumke for selling my home in St. Joseph, Michigan. I moved out of state which added to my stress level trying to handle two homes from long distance. Paul is not only very professional but trustworthy as well. He did an amazing job at keeping me posted and offered suggestions that proved to be worthwhile. I am impressed with his ability to manage all aspects of selling a home and am completely satisfied with the end result. He understands the market well and adds value to any real estate transaction. You won't go wrong if you sign with Paul!!
Paul - Thank you SO much for being able to accomplish what none of the numerous prior realtors were able to do in finally and quickly selling my parents' house! Two plus years dinking around with other realtors who gave them nothing but grief and you manage to give them exceptional results in no time at all - You are AWESOME - thank you for all of your hard work with this situation, I am so very grateful that you were willing and able to help them out! It is such a relief to know that they are finally not only free from this enormous financial and physical burden, but that they feel like they were treated respectfully and received a fair deal. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! :)
Thanks for all your help in making our "dream home" a reality. We really appreciated that you went the extra mile to get us the best price for our home. You are truly a professional.
In all our dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, we have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as you have been. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend your service to anyone who is looking for an experienced Realtor who cares about getting things done and doing them right! Thanks for taking such good care of us, we couldn't have done it without you!
Thank you so much for taking the extra effort to make our first home purchase successful. You were there guiding us through all the crucial and important steps! You really listened to what we wanted in our home and you found exactly what we were looking for - at an amazing price! If we ever outgrow this home, we'll definitely be calling you!
You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home.
I have known Paul for a number of years but never dealt with him as a realtor. He helped my daughter buy her first home and he went above and beyond for her. When my husband and I decided to move back to Michigan in November of 2012 there was no question about who we wanted to help us find our home as over the years we have heard very good things about Paul. My husband is a very hard person to please and he still speaks of how impressed he is with Paul's professionalism and knowledge but most of all his honesty. Paul never makes you feel like he is trying to sell a house he makes you feel like he is your best friend trying to help find your forever home. We will be recommeding Paul to anyone that asks if we know a great realtor.…More
We have conducted real estate business with Paul in three separate transactions and have been 100% satisfied each time. The first transaction was the purchase of a Buchanan home, the second was the purchase of a lot in Baroda township and the third was the sale of a home in Three Oaks. You can't go wrong with Paul's expertise!
