After reading that e-mail I feel particularly lucky to have found you.
Obviously most Realtors want to make the most money they can on a deal, and
your philosophy does not necessarily lead to that outcome. You are doing
the right thing and that is very hard to find these days
As a youngish single woman and a first-time home buyer, I was bracing myself
for some pushy salesmanship and needing to defend my opinions and
Paul was forthright in identifying potential benefits and areas
of concern in the properties we viewed, but he respected my opinions and
never treated me as though any issue was over my head.
He was very clearly committed to helping me find a place that was a good fit for me, and I'm very pleased
with where I ended up!
Paul listed my home on 6/8/2020 and it sold on 6/30/2020 . with his positive attitude and my nervous he made it happen so effortlessly. WOW, I certainly called the right guy. and I am so glad I did.
THANK YOU PAUL HARSCH !!!!

As I said at our closing, my pursuit for a Western Massachusetts property begun in a spirit of simple "look-see" for a snazzy new apartment became such an interesting and enlightening process, concluding in a way we had not anticipated, but one with which we are very happy!
I genuinely appreciate your assistance and always timely responses to our various questions. We were also impressed with your sure sense of decorum during the actual closing itself__ never underestimated those good manners my parents always said. Yours certainly were in full play then. Wishing you all the best."

After all we went through the last six months I needed a few days
to think over everything over before writing you. Because I have known you
and your excellent reputation for probably 30 years there was no question
who Dianne and I wanted to help us with the sale of our home. Little did I
know or could imagine what we would go through over the last six months.
When the interior was destroyed in a broken pipe flood we knew this would be
tough. We were very happy and surprised when you found us a buyer right away
for our shell of a house.
You worked very hard and well with both Dianne and
I and the buyers helping to solve many serious and minor problems
culminating in our sale at a very fair price. We have not one bit of
hesitation to recommend you to any future customers.
Thanks again for all your help, your friends

My realtor, Paul Harsch, was an invaluable guide on the path to my Vermont home purchase. He is a New England resident, and lives a resonant life with respect for the values of sustainability, creativity, and community. From Bennington to Egremont, I’ve witnessed other realtors awestruck by his gently shared knowledge of historical authenticity, timeless craftsmanship practices, and contemporary building codes.
Coming from the west, with no awareness of the nuances of ice build-up on rooftops or the lifespan of a boiler, Paul respectfully answered questions, listened to concerns, and offered visionary solutions to some of the less efficient situations we came across. He is supportive of imaginative renovation ideas, and quick to coordinate meetings with contractors and architects to discuss remodeling before the contract phase. But Paul truly impressed me with his facilitation skills once contract negotiation began.
The realtor’s listing for my Bennington home contained innumerable “alternative facts,” including inflated square footage, and was followed up with the seller’s “disclosure” paperwork, equally shockingly deceptive. Paul pushed for accuracy, researched comps and pricing valuations, and coordinated multiple inspections to unearth enough factual information to negotiate a price for me that was $50,000 below ask.
More importantly, his sleuthing exposed a life-threatening, decade-old chimney violation—which, had it not killed me, would certainly have precluded insurance coverage! Having Paul as my realtor gave me the confidence to explore homesteading throughout NY, MA, and VT and enabled me to feel empowered about the price and potential of my wonderful new home.
What a wonderful experience working with you to find our vacation home! We feel so fortunate to have found you. Your competence in every realm--the ins and outs of the real estate market, knowledge of how homes are constructed and maintained, staying on top of every detail along the way--was impressive. We have worked with many good real estate agents over the years, but you stand out as someone who is truly gifted. You negotiated on our behalf in a manner that was impressively hard-nosed yet gracious. Through our eighteen months of looking, your enthusiasm and unflappability ensured that we always enjoyed our outings. We very enthusiastically recommend you to our friends and family. Thank you!
