...Paul Is An Excellent Real Estate Agent...
"I had been looking for a one-floor plan home in Burlington for several years, working with top agents from several of the large Burlington real estate agencies, including Royal Lepage and Rocca Sisters. Unfortunately they were unable to find me a house. I discovered that some agents were overweighted with clients and were unavailable to get me into listings in time to make an offer. Other agents did not understand what I was looking for or botched the negotiation of offers.
I did not know Paul before I met him to discuss the sale of my home and the purchase of a new home. Paul impressed me on meeting him with his enthusiasm and knowledge. He quickly proved that he was quick off the mark, getting me into listings within hours of them being listed. Initially Paul was to only represent me on the purchase of a home with another agent from the firm to handle the sale of my home. I worked with Paul for about 9 months and we looked at numerous homes throughout Burlington. He was always familiar with the area in which the house was located and was able to point out both issues and highlights of the home we were viewing. He would always have comparable sales available for the area I was looking in. Many times he would preview the house for me to see if it met my criteria, so as not to waste my time. I really appreciated his efforts in that regard. When Paul finally found the house which I wanted, we worked together to ensure that I got the home. He provided comparable sales and agreed upon a strategy to avoid a competitive bidding process on the home and ensure that I get the house.
Paul was so effective in finding me a new house that I insisted that he handle the sale of my home. He discussed at length with me strategies to get the highest offer, and set the correct asking price which would hopefully lead to a competitive bidding process and a higher selling price. He supervised every aspect of the sale process, the complete staging of the home, the photography and videos of the interior and exterior of the home, and the marketing of the home including an excellent sales brochure, highlighting the selling points of my house and the location. He set up and supervised an open house which directly led to the sale of the house. Although the house was listed in November, a slow time for house sales, he negotiated an offer within 2 days of listing my home, 10% above the asking price, and with no conditions (not even an inspection). The sales price set a record for the area!
Paul is an excellent real estate agent, very familiar with the Burlington and area housing market. He has an ability to work with the client and understand exactly what kind of home you are looking for. Not only is he effective in finding one a home, he has sharp negotiating skills and will ensure you are getting an excellent price either on the sale of your existing home or the purchase of a new home. In addition he is a decent and honest agent with whom you can place your trust. I have recommended Paul Roussel to friends and acquaintances and have no hesitation in recommending him to you."

...So Thorough To Meeting My Needs...
"I would like to say, what an exceptional real estate agent Paul Roussel from RE/MAX Escarpment Realty is and what a pleasure it was to work with an agent so thorough to meeting my needs.

...Thanks Paul And Charlie For A Great Experience...We Are So Excited That We Finally Found "the one"!...
"Paul has been my agent for the past year or so. During that time he was super patient and informative (as I am a first time homebuyer). He never pressured me and was always available whenever I wanted to see a house. When my fiancé and I started looking together we were both pleased to use Paul to find our first home. He was always available, he even stopped on his way to vacation to show us a house we desperately wanted to see! If he ever went away he left us in great hands with his colleague Charlie. We found the perfect place and his team handled our offer and purchase perfectly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul (or Charlie) as an agent to my friends and family. He was extremely easy to work with, and I loved that there was no pressure or guilt (even if he took us out to see 50 different places)! Thanks Paul and Charlie for a great experience...we are so excited that we finally found "the one"!"

...I Couldn't Have Asked For A Better Realtor - Paul Roussel...
"Paul Roussel has been my realtor for a couple months now and has done an outstanding job. I am a young, single female with very little knowledge of how real estate works. Paul was able to answer all my questions and leave me more knowledgeable than I ever thought possible in such a short time. He also worked around my schedule -I never had to take time off work. It was very nice to know I had someone in my corner that was able to calm my nerves, reassure me, and get the job done. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor."
- Colleen Booker, Stoney Creek, ON
...I Would Highly Recommend Paul...
"Having never bought a house this was probably the scariest thing we've ever taken part of. We are first time home buyers who were VERY picky, and Paul Roussel was able to find us the perfect home. We went from St. George to Flamborough looking for a home for 4-5 months. Every home he took us to, he was patient, thoughtful and pointed things out to us we never would have noticed or recognized with our inexperienced eye. He was ALWAYS flexible and most importantly professional. Paul was recommended to us by close friends. They explained him as positive, very well organized and 150% committed to his clients. We saw nothing less but the best from Paul. He was honest, enthusiastic and diligent. When putting together an offer with our soon to be home, Paul took the time to explain the process and the next steps to come. Any questions we had (and let me share....we had MANY), he was able to answer promptly and confidently. We made it through the process without a glitch, and are very happy to say we move in May 30th! I would highly recommend Paul Roussel when you are looking for your next home in the Waterdown, Flamborough area!!"
- Ali & Kyle, Flamborough, ON
...Paul, You Are A Great Agent...
"Paul, I would like to thank you for all your hard work in finding me the house. You are a great agent and with all your knowledge and experience you made it easy. I was worried in the start because of being on my own but in every house we looked at, your knowledge of the windows, floors, electrical box and even the age of the roof was helpful. I will certainly recommend you to my friends. Thanks again for everything."
- Iris Smith, Waterdown, ON
...Your Advice Was Invaluable...
"Thanks so much Paul for the wonderful job you did selling my house, I was very impressed with your professionalism and your knowledge of the real-estate market, your advice on what I should and shouldn’t do was invaluable, also how you staged my house played a large factor in its selling in five days and for more than the asking price. I have no hesitation in recommending you to all my friends and family."
- Geoff Monepenny, Burlingon, ON
...I Would Recommend Paul As An Excellent Real Estate Agent...

Paul never made me feel pressured into purchasing a home and was quick to point out flaws or problems that could become issues in the future. His approach to finding me a home made me feel that he put my best interest before himself making a sale. I was extremely happy with my experience and would recommend Paul as an excellent real estate agent to use for anyone looking for a home."

...FINALLY, We Too Can Post Our Picture In Front Of The Famous Sold Sign. TOO LATE...
"Woolcott Realty has one of the most professional teams working for them. From the time we listed with them they made us feel that we were their first priority.
Each question each inquiry we had received immediate response. Paul our agent had been outstanding throughout the whole process. Thank you again Woolcott Realty. FINALLY, we too can post our picture in front of the famous Sold sign. TOO LATE.
- Balwinder, Waterdown, ON
...Paul Was Extremely Open About The Whole Process And Was Very Professional...
"My husband and I recently sold the first house we ever purchased and used Paul Roussel from Woolcott - it was an awesome experience! Paul actually sold our house to us two years ago and we loved working with him so we used him for the sale. Woolcott was so professional, the staging ladies were amazing, and we really appreciated the practical tips we got on selling. Paul was extremely open about the whole process and was very professional especially in our multiple offer situation. We also really appreciated how decisive he was about the selling strategy we should follow to ensure we got the best value for our house - ultimately we got more than we could of dreamed of. Before our sale I was a little skeptical about agents fees, but after this experience I now know paying great realtors is absolutely worth it - all their processes and advice bring much more in house value! I would absolutely recommend Woolcott to anyone!"
