Reviews for Rusty Paap

Rusty was a great find - I am so glad the random laws of nature allow this type of serendipity to happen. Rusty stepped up to the plate, he hit a home run with me. I needed to do FHA financing in a booming market. Had several false starts, but when I found the perfect home, Rusty helped me get the financing and all contingencies handled - we closed in 3 weeks in an extremely hot market. I would highly recommend Rusty to anyone who is looking for a dynamite realtor. He is pragmatic, never misled me about anything and provided immediate response when needed. His expertise in the local market is unparalleled. He provided me with a tailor made folder of materials when we first met, and had followed up on each and every issue I have presented, in fact I just spoke with him on a question that has come up since closing, and once again, his response was immediate and appropriate. His extensive network of service providers was also very pivotal in closing early. He has great relationships with contractors, pest control, financing and handles all other potential obstacles quickly. He also calm and has a great sense of humor - was an absolute pleasure to do business with.

Working with Rusty was a fantastic experience. He's candid, honest, and extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market in the greater San Jose bay area. He did a great job helping me evaluate comparable listings and narrow in on what was most important to me. In addition, he's very observant of any new homes that become available, frequently showing me places that weren't even on the market yet. I ended up purchasing a new townhome and Rusty was invaluable in negotiating with the KB homes selling agents and their unorganized "upgrade" process. He was able to convince them to throw in many perks like no closing costs & completely upgraded appliances, among others. Overall, it was a truly enjoyable experience working with Rusty and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the future!

Working with Rusty made the property buying process much easier and understandable. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, helping us find a home that suited our needs. At no time did he pressure us or rush us into making hasty descisions. There were a few times when we thought we would not find the house that was meant for us, but after almost a year, it came to us. Being that it was a short sale, Rusty gave us the information and details we needed to make sound decisions and guided us through the tangled web of going through a short sale property.

We had a terrible experience with another realtor a year before we purchased our new home and Rusty was a breath of fresh air. The second time around, we were a lot more skeptical, had a MILLION more questions and truth be told, were very demanding and Rusty was incredibly patient, was very quick to return our calls and answer our questions and given we were using a VA loan and were very limited in this market, Rusty was very understanding and was able to find us a wonderful home that we love. What we really appreciated about Rusty is that he was professional but real and honest and it was almost like looking at houses with a friend or close family member. He never hesitated to ask the tough questions and we really felt like he had our best interest in mind. We would definitely recommend Rusty to anyone and would use him again ourselves if we wanted to purchase another property or had to relocated.

He is an incredible realtor and a great person! His knowledge in his field is more than any other realtor I have ever met. He explains things with such ease and makes you feel comfortable. He always kept our needs and wants in mind. I truly think we got such a great deal, during a period when negotiating was really not in the cards. They way he presented our offer was amazing. We are in our home that we love.

Rusty worked with us to purchase our first home.  He was exceptional.  He worked around our schedule to show us homes, he didn't speak in real estate jargon, he explained EVERYTHING very clearly so we knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into.  He was so flexible with our schedule that he even came to my work one day to get us paperwork!  Overall, Rusty is the man; he does what it takes to make his clients happy.

Rusty work with us to sell our house in the dreaded lull of the 2009 market and I don't think we would have had success without him.  He was quick and efficient in all areas and was also able to recover from a initial fall through loan approval on the first buyer.  His advice as to pricing and listing worked. He was always prompt with all paperwork and there were no mixups during the process from the selling end. Highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I were referred to Rusty by a family friend.  From the first time we met Rusty, up to today, Rusty is always amazing, supportive and understanding.  We were first time homebuyers, which meant we had NO idea what to expect, and Rusty explained everything in detail with much patience.  He listened to our needs and wants and took us to see A LOT of places before we finally decided on one.  He was great, and we will definietly be using Rusty when it comes time to buy our next place!

Rusty is an awesome individual to work with. Not only does he listen but he follows up and lets you know where everything is in the up to action items, status report or things they were going to get back to me on. Its nice to work with an individual such as Rusty that lets you know where things are at. He even calls to say hey I just wanted to let you know I have not head anything I will let call you either way by the end of the week and he does it!

Besides being extremely professional and knowledgeable about his business,  what I appreciate the most about Rusty is how he listens to his clients and no matter how specific their requirements are,  he works hard to meet their needs.  He is honest, hard working and genuine,  I have worked with Rusty personally and have referred friends to him who
have had the same positive experiences with him.

I worked with Rusty on purchasing a home. I was impressed not only with his knowledge of the area and professionalism (he was always prepared, on time) but his patience. I had no idea what I wanted, he did a great job of showing me different options and helping me narrow down my choices, nothing was forced on me. Ultimately, I found the perfect place for me, which like would not have happened with another agent. Then when it came to the negotiating and the paperwork, it was as easy as I could have imagined. Although real estate transactions seldom go smoothly, he handled everything quickly and accurately, making the process as painless and quick as possible. I'd highly recommend him for any home buying/selling needs.

Rusty has helped us on several properties.  Without his knowledge and know how several of our deals  would have fallen through.  I highly recommend him as I have in the past.

I have bought and sold homes in the San Francisco bay area and have utilized Rusty Paap's services.  He is professional, knowledgeable, courteous, detail oriented, honest,  and is also a nice person.   The deals went smoothly and he always kept me informed.  If you are looking for  for someone to satisfy your real estate needs I suggest looking no further you have found a superb agent.

Rusty Paap and Roberto Ruiz have a tremendous amount of experience with closing various types of transactions ranging from traditional, REO and short sale transactions.  They are well versed in working with experienced investors, having investment properties themselves, along with first time buyers and sellers.  Rusty and Roberto are also very responsive and always make themselves available to their clients. They are true professional and have the best interests of their clients in mind at all times. I highly recommend Rusty and Roberto for all of your real estate needs.

Rusty Paap knows his job.  He can give you stellar service in buying, selling, borrowing.  He is caring, honest, and guileless.  If you are working with Rusty, you can be assured that you will be treated with respect and consideration for your situation.  I would never think of using anyone but Rusty for any real estate needs.
