Paula gets the job done through her good relationships with buyers and sellers

"Paula gets the job done through her good relationships with buyers and sellers. She went the extra mile in coordinating our settlement date by both hiring and helping the cleaning crews in order to meet our settlement deadline. Wow! "

Paula took us to the best deals in the area

We were moving from New Jersey to the Williamsburg area and were recommended to Paula Tenenbaum by a friend. We still had a house to sell in NJ but Paula took the time lo show us some homes in different neighborhoods to get a feel for our likes and dislikes. Paula also sent us to a mortgage company to become pre-approved. When we got an offer on our Jersey home, Paula took us to the best deals in the area. She advised us to consider a property in Toano which was an under appraised value. An offer was put in under her advice. Not only was it a great value but we loved the home and neighborhood. Fast forward two months we have our dream home and Paula also sold the home next door. The home next door sold for $100,000 more than ours, two months and instant equity. Paula was right - it was a great deal…thanks Paula.

We were very happy to have Paula act as our agent

"We are very happy to have Paula act as our agent. We were able to buy our home while on a 49 day South American Cruise,everything going very smoothly. She also sold our other home after our return. Paula is an outstanding "buyers" agent AND "sellers" agent."

-- Thomas Fell and Joseph Vickstein

When I hired you for help with my house sale, I expected a thorough and professional effort

"When I hired you for help with my house sale, I expected a thorough and professional effort. I did get that and more! You understood every aspect of home sales. Beyond that you saw my home in a way that I hadn’t. On your advice, I repurposed three rooms (Den, Dining, and Sun rooms) to make them more appealing in the buyers eye. Shortly after that, my home was sold. You supported me and my normal seller’s anxiety with a confident demeanor and by keeping me informed of comments made by agents and prospective buyers. Following the bid acceptance, your guidance for paperwork and process requirements has been a comfort. Thank you very much."

-- Bill Kornbluh

This letter is to express my sincere appreciation and elation regarding the services of Paula Tenenbaum, one of your Real Estate Agents.

Paula Tenenbaum is the quintessential agent who goes above and beyond the call of duty and the responsibilities of any agent. Paula has been a great asset to me and my family. Regardless of whether Paula is representing you on the selling side or buying side, she goes above and beyond in providing excellence. Mrs. Tenenbaum has been an invaluable asset to me and my family with every step of the purchasing process, from price negotiations, inspection reports, insurance recommendations, banking representatives to handling the responsibilities and duties of other real estate agents to get the job done.

I have had Paula represent me on both the buying as well as on the selling side and in both cases Paula has provided nothing short of excellence. Paula takes the time to listen to her clients regarding their needs and wants, and takes it a step further in providing the perfect home for that particular client including the things that have not been said. Mrs. Tenenbaum provides all the required services needed to proceed through the entire home buying and selling process.

Paula made it possible for me to purchase the perfect home at the perfect price through her knowledge of what is on the market and her incredible price negotiating skills. Paula has knowledge of a home for sale before the sellers even know they will be putting their house on the market, she is just that great! Paula goes above and beyond with her services whereby you feel as though you are the only person that she is working to help and somehow there are more than 24 hours in a single day and she has about three (3) other clones of herself hidden somewhere helping out! Once again, I would like to thank you and your company for having a fantastic real estate agent in your employ.

Capable, Knowledgeable, Insightful, Diligent, Dedicated, & Determined

I first met Paula four months ago when I decided to go to an advertised open house in Colonial Heritage. Although made purely by happenstance, it was a fortuitous decision. From that day forward, I have been guided, counseled, and cared for by Paula in my search not only for a new home but also a new beginning in my life. Paula's professionalism as a real estate agent is beyond any possible reproach. She is everything a perspective client could hope for; capable, knowledgeable, insightful, diligent, dedicated, and determined to find someone a home that is just right. In my opinion, she is the Tom Brady of realtors; the most valuable player on the field who can overcome any and all odds and make victory possible. I was very lucky to have her on my side every step of the way. I can truthfully say my homeownership was a hard fought contest that nearly went into overtime, but Paula always kept the ball moving in the right direction.

Even more importantly, Paula possesses another amazing quality: she is an extraordinary person who is extraordinary personable. Paula cares deeply about people and does anything she can to help them find happiness--not just in the warmth and comfort of a new home, but in life. There were several occasions when I felt frustrated and discouraged not only with the closing process but with certain personal situations. In those moments, Paula served double-duty: she became my number one cheerleader; convincing me with kind words and thoughtful deeds that everything will turn out alright in the end. As always, she was absolutely correct.

Paula and her husband, Mel, were the first people I met in Williamsburg. They made me feel at home from the very beginning. They are the kind of people anyone would want as friends and neighbors; generous, kind, trustworthy, and dependable. Thanks to them, I knew I wanted to live in this community and I am very glad that I do. As a result, I will always be a big fan and promoter of Williamsburg Realty

Responsive and Positive

 Paula Tenenbaum, was an exceptional advocate for our purchase. Her responsiveness and positive tone was evident in every communication. She went out of her way to ensure the deal was finalized. Quite unexpectedly, she has been very generous with her time and expertise to assure other details of our purchase and transition were smooth-sailing (contact info for utilities, connections to contractors, availability at the house as we were in North Carolina, etc.).

I will recommend Paula to all my colleagues and friends as the need arises. I could not be more pleased with the experience!

-- Susan English


If we searched the world over we could not have found a more professional and knowledgeable realtor than Paula Tenenbaum.

We have always planned to move to Williamsburg when we retired. About three years ago we came to Williamsburg to see all of the 55 and older communities and fell in love with Colonial Heritage. Paula kept in touch with us and shared her knowledge of the area. Our move needed to take place the end of March 2017 and we began the home search in November 2016. Thinking it would take us months to find a home, we did not think we would sign a contract in November. Paula had been sent our wants and wishes and a list of homes we wanted to look at, She did her homework and identified the pros and cons of each home on our list. We looked at four homes and each one did not fill all of our wishes. It was clear to get everything that we wanted we would have to build. Our age and health and the fact that we lived in Maryland made building, not an option. Paula was wonderful and knew just where to take us and we signed a contract in November. The seller was willing to wait until February 2017 to close and the rest is history.

We love the home and, although we just moved in on March 27th and are still unpacking, it is clear to us that this is truly the perfect house for us.

When we had a few changes to make after the closing, Paula immediately jumped in to help, going above and beyond. Not many realtors would have gone the extra mile for their clients after the deal was closed. We will recommend Paula to everyone that we meet.

We just wanted you to know how pleased and happy we were in our dealings with Paula and Williamsburg Realty.
