    Paula Martel

    With 30 plus years of real estate experience and 25 years of management experience, I have been helping clients find their new homes for more than the majority of my lifetime. I believe clients should be treated the way I would want to be treated, so I always put their interests first. For this reason, I like to keep an air of warm, friendly professionalism in the office, and I emphasize the importance of our agents being well-educated in modern technology in order to provide the best possible service. Because I love my job, I do my best at every day to day job duties, no matter how big or small. Getting it right the first time is critical to ensure the company's success.

    When I'm not working, I like to have fun with my seven grandchildren Quenton, Cassidy, Ethan, Ben, Chloe, Emery & Adelyn, as well as my Husband William Bowler. I also enjoy bowling, gardening, and photography.

    We could not have had a better person to help us with this situation. Paula is a very professional person, and yet at the same time a very caring person. Which we appreciated so very much. She was always there for us, with ANY question or concern we had. She helped us understand things that we were not aware of, as we were in charge of selling property of a loved one who had died. And because of all of this we now have her in charge of selling my Mother's house too. We can't say ENOUGH praise for Paula as our Realtor, and now also as a dear and trusted friend. Kathy and David Borsos ~ Kathy & David Borsos, Riverside, RI
