Testimonials

Read below to see what my clients have to say about our services!

Paula is the go-to person if you're buying or selling in Philly. I highly recommend Paula,
especially if you're from out of town or just don't want to be bothered or are too busy with
all the minutiae involved in buying/selling. Paula will stay on top of everything for you and
make the process painless. Paula represented me, the buyer, on my first investment property
in Philadelphia. She also found and placed a tenant within days after closing.

-Ed C., Buyer/Landlord

Paula really came through for me when I needed it!!! Because of very strange circumstances, I needed to locate a rental in Center City very quickly. Paula listened to my wish list, and was VERY patient as she took me around to various available rentals. She expertly guided me through the application process and worked with the landlord’s agent to accommodate my requests. She was patient, thorough and above all a calming and reassuring presence. When I am ready for my next move, Paula will be the only person I call.--G.S./Tenant

It was a great pleasure to work with Paula. She is extremely friendly and professional at the same time. She walked me through each step in the process of buying my first condo and made it seamless, even though I had only a couple of weeks to complete the transaction. She is very flexible and responds promptly to any questions or requests. I would seriously not have made it without her. She is wonderful and I definitely recommend her as a Realtor.

Paula was reliable, patient, knowledgeable and AWESOME to have by my side as a first-time buyer. -- Richard L. 
-Richard L./Buyer

My father and I had a great experience working with Paula. She was endlessly patient and incredibly quick in her responsiveness to all of our requests and questions. She knew far more than we ever hoped to about the process of buying a home and of the Philadelphia area in general. She took the time to not only show us the apartments we were interested in, but also, to give us a walking tour of the neighborhood and explain to us the dynamic and flow of the surrounding shops, restaurants, and people. Paula was a delight to work with; she is approachable, personable, and incredibly generous with her time. She explained every part of the process clearly and thoroughly, and made it as straightforward as possible. We would love to work with her again in the future, and highly recommend her.

Paula represented me with my first condo purchase in Philadelphia. She is very knowledgeable (and clearly proud) of the city.

We have had four buy/sell transactions with Paula since 2016.
She is a true professional and we trust her with all of our transactions.
On three, we gave her our power of attorney to attend closings we were
unable to attend. She is truly one of the best realtors we have ever engage.
We will use her whenever we need a realtor in the Philadelphia area.
-R. Boysen/Buyer/Seller

Paula is a pleasure to work with--she knows the real estate in Philadelphia, and her communications kept me on track throughout the process. She is attentive to details and made the search, inspections, purchase and subsequent move-in a breeze. I especially appreciate her quick turnaround with messages, and her willingness to show me places I didn't know at the time I really wasn't going to want to buy, but desperately wanted to see for myself. I highly recommend Paula to help you in your search for a place to buy in Philadelphia.

-Laura/Buyer

Paula Cohen served as my realtor in acquiring a condominium unit in Society Hill. Paula was wonderful in learning the kind of property that would interest me and then finding suitable prospects. She handled price negotiations skillfully and the eventual transaction was carefully documented. I always had the impression that Paula had my back and relied heavily on her professional expertise in negotiations and closing. I was very happy with her performance and recommend her to others without reservation. MM

My niece sent me a link for a townhouse in South Philadelphia. I clicked the link, liked what I saw, and heard from Paula the next day. She impressed me with her knowledge of the market and listening skill. I asked for interior pictures which were promptly sent. As she and I went through the process and documents, I realized that she is a highly skilled professional realtor. The more e mails we exchanged, I knew that she had to have been an English major. This was important to me as my Masters is in English with a major in Literature. The more we talked about the transaction I became increasingly confident with her natural integrity. My wife and I were so impressed that we asked her to attend closing in our stead. She performed far beyond our expectations. We will definitely us her on any future transactions in her market.

-Richard Boysen, Client, Managing Director

Paula was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was incredibly patient and knowledgable. She explained things so I could understand and helped me navigate the process of buying my first home. I always felt that she had my best interest at heart. She went way above and beyond to help me get what I wanted. Even after closing she has followed up on tax docs to be sure everything is taken care of. -- S. Lu

It is with great pleasure that my fiancé and I write this letter of recommendation for realtor, Paula Cohen of Prudential Fox and Roach. We met Paula during an open house that she was hosting. Paula was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable with the Philadelphia real estate market, so we decided to choose her as our agent. 

Throughout the entire process Paula was caring, honest, listened well, responsive, and has great negotiating skills. She was able to negotiate a price for the house that we were comfortable paying. She is extremely hard working, as she worked nights and weekends and was always accommodating to our schedule. Paula’s knowledge and attention to detail was invaluable from the home selection, offer, inspection, and closing process. I would highly recommend Paula to anyone who is looking to buy a house. 

-Grace Tran, Client, Senior Financial Analyst at ACE-INA

Working with Paula was a breath of fresh air in my recent move from NYC to Philadelphia. I only had a few days to find a new place and Paula offered both expertise on Philadelphia neighborhoods and a personable approach that made the search very pleasant. Thanks Paula!
