I tried a couple of agents, as soon as they got the listing we never heard for them much after the first 60 days or so and was on the market for a year. We decided to go For Sale By Owner figuring we could save the commission since we could not see the value of a agent. Then we met Neal at an open house, we were trying to figure out why our home was not selling or getting many showings
We traded some e-mails and phone calls back and forth and I decided to give him an interview to list my home. I must admit I was skeptical of using a agent again and asked him a lot of hard questions.
Neal listened and asked us some hard questions also. Neal was always in touch with us about the market. We highly recommend and thank him and Baird & Warner for getting our home sold.

I was introduced to Neal, by a friend who had just sold his house one of the things that impressed me the most was his straightforward approach and knowledge of the real estate business I had not bought or sold a home in quite a few years. Certainly the real estate business has changed. that sellers. His presentation was to the point, and he took a very good amount of time to make sure that I would understand how the market was so I could make the right decisions.
Baird Warner is a local favorite in my area Neal was able to show me some of the technology that the company has invested in over many years to help get my home maximum exposure.

Neal, Thank You so very much for getting our home sold and your understanding of what a stressful time this was for us ….
Thanks for pointing out the clutter, helping with the new paint, as well as understanding how difficult it is to keep the house in “Tip Top” showing condition… on and on..
The most important thing I wanted to thank you for is letting us know from our very first meeting, before we even listed with you… all the “good, bad and ugly” of the market right now, and how we, together were going to deal with the reality of the market.
Feel free to pass this on to any one as a recommendation as we will do the same for you!
Keep In Touch,

We would like to send a quick note regarding Neal Paskvan, our Baird & Warner real estate agent that helped us find the home of our dreams.
Our search started a little over a year ago in March 2010. Being first time home buyers and knowing very little about the real estate “game”, Neal showed nothing but patience and comforting encouragement. The process of figuring out what we really wanted meant many trips into houses that left much to be desired… and although we are sure Neal could have told us that they would not be ‘the one’, he always supported our search, knowing that smart home buyers had seen them all. And boy, by the time we found our home… we had seen it all!
Neal understood our needs and wants, and we valued his opinion and advice. From providing useful tools, such as spreadsheets to help organize our finances and articles to keep us aware of the bigger picture, to always being available by phone or in person, we truly believe that Neal consistently went above and beyond the call of duty and made us more than comfortable with the entire process. He was there to walk us through the steps of making the offer, home inspection, final walk through, and he even sat with us through closing procedures… all with his classic optimism and smile that we had grown to find so calming in very new and nerve racking territory.
We have been in our Home now for 8 months, and life could not be better. We know that Neal is still there if we have questions (which sure came in handy when we had our first battle with a sump pump) and will be a trusted friend for life.
Please know that you not only have a fantastic agent on your staff that we will continue to recommend to friends and family, but a caring, honest and supportive person as well
With the Highest Regards,
Sara Vong, and Ryan Veitch

My daughter and her fiancé used Neal to help them find their first house so when it came time for my mother to move on and sell her condo , I called Neal for some help on getting it sold Neal also holds some kind of senior designation from the national Association of realtors. So it certainly helped that he had a team put together to work on all the details of helping her move on and getting us the advice we needed.

Don and I just wanted to say Thanks Again for helping my Mom and Dad. Your understanding of the fact that they needed to move out of the home they worked so hard for, raised 3 kids and held so many memories for all of us was truly a gift.
Mom and Dad are really adapting well to their new townhome and have started to make some new friends! I can also see that they seem to be a bit more tidy in the new home since it’s all not so much of a burden for them to keep up with things.
Thanks for patience and expertise in getting the “dusty old place” sold and getting them into a home they could enjoy again.

Working with Neal Paskvan in the sale of our house was extremely professional! We found him to be very knowledgeable, hard working and always keeping us informed and updated on everything including the feed back after each showing, as well as the market trends in our neighborhood. Neal was never too busy to answer the simplest question we might have. We just certainly appreciated his attention to all the details, like getting pictures for the website done by a professional photographer. His suggestions were right on target and that is why we were able to sell our house so quickly. We will be return customers and we will surely recommend him to friends and family! He was a pleasure to work with!
Sincerely, Martha and Ayoub Zarkhah

Dear Baird and Warner,
Your Agent, Neal Paskvan was AWSOME in helping us purchase our first home. At our first meeting and after giving him a list of all the things we wanted in a home he gave us some “homework” to do.
Neal gave us a spreadsheet to work on, listing ALL of our expenses (yep even dog food) and where all our money was currently going so we could figure out how much we could conformability afford.
After working and reworking Neal’s spread sheet, We were totally surprised how all our money was spent. Most of the money we were spending was on just getting out of the apartment! Things like going to the laundry, eating out 2-3 times a week. We cut way back on our spending of things that were not really important to our goal of getting a Home of our own!
We are now in our own home instead of an apartment. Our payment is only $63 per month more than the rent we were going to have to pay at the apartment, and we will make up some of that by the interest deduction on our taxes!
Friends and family are always wanting to come over! Our dog Rex has a yard of his own to romp in and we painted our place in the tones we love!
Thank You Neal, Life is Good
