I chose to become a realtor after retiring from a 24-year career as a high school guidance counselor and history teacher. Over the last 14 years I’ve found success because, according to my clients, I’m responsive (my wife doesn't like this quality much when I'm answering questions 24/7 while we’re on vacation), adaptable and have the market knowledge and listening skills this profession requires. I joined Bradford Real Estate in 2012 and received the firm’s Top Producing Agent Award in 2014 and 2016.
As I am not solely dependent upon my real estate business for my income I can be patient and flexible, which are important assets for negotiating the best deal for my clients. I am a long-standing member of the Denver Board of Realtors and through their continuing education classes am on top of area real estate trends, which benefits my clients.
I treat every client like they are my family or a close friend. I hope to create a lifelong relationship with you through listening to your needs and making honesty and integrity the foundations of our time together.
Paul will work hard for you and give you honest and informed guidance to navigate the competitive housing landscape in Denver. You can trust him to negotiate a smart and competitive contract to help you get the home you want. On top of all that, he is also a really great person who we feel truly had our best interest in mind.
Paul showed a genuine interest in our well-being, on top of guiding us to experts we needed. This was not my first time buying a house, but it was my first time using an agent to do so. It is an incredibly intimate process that requires attention to detail and most of all trust. I am so glad we found Paul and our dream house!
Paul helped me sell my family home in the Berkeley neighborhood after 52 years when my mother passed away. Besides selling our home in 25 days with more than three offers over the asking price, Paul also hired contractors to remove a garage full of dilapidated appliances, all the beaten-down furniture and boxes of clothing and other clutter someone collects after living in a house that long.
I'm a Denver native and proud of it and have been married to my amazing wife Tricia (the best person I have ever known) for 33 years. We have two wonderful children, Shane and Jordan, and three beautiful grandsons Ryder, Roman and Devon.

My favorite book—
The 1943 signed copy of “Clarence Darrow for the Defense” by Irving Stone given to me by my dad has served as a bedrock of my beliefs and philosophy on how you treat other people in this world in difficult circumstances.
My favorite quote—
I always shared Confucius’s quote, “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life,” with my students and I try to live by it.
My favorite restaurant in Denver—
Potager, which means French garden, started the farm-to-table trend 25 years ago.
