sales and she always answers the same way, "I treat each client like
family. That is how we built the business and how it continues to grow. I love
helping people achieve their dreams and I do it with the utmost respect for my
clients needs and wishes."

business. She realized that her skills as a CPA would be extremely
beneficial to real estate. In 2000, Paula joined her parents real estate
business and she's never looked back. Like her parents, Paula quickly earned
Columbus Board of Realtors 25 Million Dollar Award. Paula is a master of time
