"Raul is the biggest surprise we have had in a long time because he is far from your typical salesman! He is low key, extremely knowledgeable, super pleasant, always willing to answer questions or find answers to things and more like a friend then a salesman! All of the people that work with him are also excellent and a pleasure to deal with. Raul made it happen for us because we wanted to get from a tri-level down to a single story and in three months we had sold our house and bought another! I give him and all his people 5 stars out of 5! Talk to you soon, Raul!
