“I have known Paul Boronow for a number of years, and gladly would recommend him to those seeking services in conjunction with their sale or purchase of real estate. Paul shows excellent attention to detail and sensitivity to the wishes of his client in the manner in which an agreement is negotiated, managed and concluded.
Paul’s depth of knowledge and experience in traditional representation of real estate buyers and sellers is enhanced by his specialty skills in estate sales, short sales and foreclosure sales. In addition, I would particularly recommend consideration of Paul for executors and administrators of estates where an expedited sale would be advantageous. Paul has various estate buyers and other contacts in this area that can lead to very prompt disposition of real estate where that is desired.
Again, I would enthusiastically recommend Paul for real estate services for buyers, sellers or estate fiduciaries.”

Paul M. Boronow’s Client Testimonials
“As a first time executor, I was very impressed with the service that Paul Boronow provided in the sale of my father-in-law’s condominium. He used state-of-the-art internet tools in marketing the property and professionally handled all of the negotiations in the transaction with dispatch.
Paul gave what turned out to be very valuable inputs on the trade-offs between fix-up VS as-is sales. When our choice of the latter was not working, his advice was again invaluable in deciding what upgrades should be made, ad what are upgrades are secondary to a buyer in a sluggish economy.
Paul was very sensitive to our desire to sell quickly while obtaining a reasonable return for the estate. Even though
Even though Paul has the connections to investors who would have bought the property for fix up and resale, he worked with us to market and sell at what turned out to be a more profitable sale for the estate and a good deal for the buyer as well.
In addition to being very knowledgeable in all aspects of the exchange of real estate, Paul is personable and transparently honest. I had no hesitancy in completely trusting him to handle our account knowing that he would have our best interests in mind. I would highly recommend him for anyone in need of help in the purchase or sale of real estate, especially when the real estate is part of an estate.”
Executor for the Estate of John J. Smith
“From the start, the search for our home has been anything but easy. Being small business owners, we were looking for not only something that would accommodate our business needs, but we also wanted to have a residential rental unit on the property to help offset the mortgage. Plus, we also desired a home suited for our growing family, and all within a modest budget?! Paul certainly had his work cut out for him!
From the very moment that we met with Paul, he was extremely courteous, professional, and most importantly—he knew his stuff!! Within a week or two of signing on with Paul, we had put an offer on an ideal property; in addition to having all the components we desired, it was in our favorite neighborhood. But as much as we loved it, we encountered a myriad of “red-tape” problems. From the way the property was zoned, to getting permits for business and building purposes, Paul was with us every step of the way. He attended zoning meetings on our behalf, met with us at our home when we had LOTS of questions (he knows it’s hard to get out of the house when you have little ones!), to being available day or night, he offered encouragement and vast wisdom and endless legwork for a complicated closing process. I can confidently say that without Paul’s expertise and hard work, we never would have been able to close on our home; his experience and vast background were invaluable. We love our new home, and can wholeheartedly say that we would recommend no one else!”

“We are so glad we worked with William Penn Real Estate Associates to buy our house. Paul really took the time to get to know us, our style and our preferences, so that every house he brought us to was ultimately one that we liked. Paul really made himself available to us, so that we never missed an opportunity and always felt connected with the status of our offer. In fact, he worked hard and fast to get us the deal we got on our house. He had put in the time to get to know our situation so that when it came down to a rapid-fire back-and-forth with the seller, we got exactly what we wanted.”
– Cliff & Jenn Lewis
“We couldn’t have been more pleased with the service Paul Boronow provided during our buying and selling process.
After attempting to sell our house by owner, we decided to consult Paul. We had lofty goals of both getting a certain price for our home and having it under contract in a VERY short period of time. Paul’s expertise and experience allowed us to accomplish both of our goals.
When looking to buy a home, Paul helped us navigate through the process of researching many homes. There was one house in particular that we were seriously considering. Paul noticed a potential problem with the septic system that could have vastly affected the resale value down the road. We felt that our best interest was Paul’s first priority. He was readily available and flexible with our schedule even going as far as to help us move.
In the end, we decided to build a new home and Paul was able to help us decide which upgrades would add long term value to our house. We valued Paul’s counsel from start to finish.
We highly recommend Paul from William Penn Real Estate Associates as both a listing and buying agent.”

“When I found the perfect house for me, I knew I wanted Paul to represent me, especially after checking with some of his other clients who had him as their realtor. Paul’s assistance in buying the house was invaluable, but honestly, the real work came when it was time to sell my old house. In spite of the down economy, the plethora of homes on the market and my little row house in the city, Paul was always encouraging in the prospect of selling. Paul’s insight into what buyers are looking for helped me prepare my home for sale and when a potential buyer, first time home buyer no less, was brought to the table, Paul spent countless hours explaining the process, showing the house and working to make the deal satisfactory for all of us. My house was under agreement within 100 days of listing! What more could I have asked for?”
– Lisa Evans
“My wife and I first consulted Paul just over a year ago. We were interested in buying our first home, but knew almost nothing about the process. He sat down with us to not only talk through the entire process but get a feel for exactly what we were interested in. Then, he began giving us his advice on which listings to pursue and met with us to see them immediately.
Paul handled all negotiations, explaining every step to us and always keeping our best interests at the forefront. He accommodated our schedules, often meeting outside of normal business hours so we could complete our paperwork. Since we bought the house, Paul has continued to provide us with advice about renovations, contractors, and the like. We have benefitted immensely from his knowledge and skill, and are thoroughly pleased with the service we have received and continue to receive from him.”
– Jonathan & Amanda Shoff
“We had been searching for a house for over a year, placing offers and having them repeatedly rejected. It was discouraging. Then, we started working with Paul Boronow! Within a matter of days we were signing an agreement for a home we absolutely loved! Paul knows how to negotiate with integrity and work in the best interest of his clients. He made buying our first home seem almost effortless, and we couldn’t be happier with the final outcome. We deeply appreciate Paul and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, personable, and honest agent.”
