See what Paul's clients are saying about him.


If you like asking your own questions and making up your own mind, you won’t find a better agent than Paul Locatelli. Some agents work for The Deal; Paul works for the Client. He worked hard for us: met tough deadlines on short notice, pointed out details we’d overlooked, shared his knowledge from years of experience, added value to negotiations on our behalf. In the three months we worked with Paul he was unfailingly available: punctual, responsive, and eager. He communicates well: no chain of phone tag, no impenetrably terse emails. Also, he is classy, honest, and thorough. I would recommend Paul 100%!

Paul is a fantastic real estate agent! He is knowledgeable, responsive, and makes buying a home fun. Paul works extremely hard for his clients and I really enjoyed working with him. If you’re looking for a home in Santa Cruz/Santa Clara County I would highly recommend Paul.

I have bought and sold 8 houses throughout the Bay Area. Paul is the best real estate agent I have worked with to date. He is extremely knowledgeable on both the buy and sell side. In addition, Paul is always willing to help you with any details and/or questions you may have.

Paul was very easy to work with — very patient and helpful — and he provided very keen and unbiased advice. We were trying to buy a home in Santa Cruz from the East Coast and he was very good at supporting us from such a long distance. He took photos and video of houses when we were out of town, and he provided both his personal and professional opinions for houses that we were interested in. We came to somewhat rely on Paul’s opinions, so much that my wife and I started joking that “In Paul We Trust”. In the long run it paid off royally. The house we ended up purchasing was only possible because of Paul’s advice and his skills with dealing with sellers. Amazingly we were able to get a reasonable counter-offer from the sellers without multiple bids. I’m very pleased to recommend Paul as your real estate agent.

This guy is amazing!! Very knowledgable about the entire process from offers to loans to permit info. He is not pushy at all and will take you to any house you want to look at. I would only buy and sell houses with Paul. He also has lots of friends in the industry which helps out when getting loans
