The Best

by Carla & Chris P.

On behalf of myself and my husband Chris, we wanted to let you know just how wonderful Paul Kocabay was to work with. He was always very professional, knowledgeable and personable as well as caring and understanding to all of our needs. We found Paul after several frustrating calls to various agencies, and were so fond of him from the start that we knew we wouldn't work with any other realtor. From the first moment we worked together he made us feel comfortable and took all of our needs and concerns into consideration. His honesty and patience made it easy for us to put all of our trust into him and his work. Any time we needed him to address any questions or concerns, he was always available to us. He always kept us informed as to what was going on and made the home buying process much less confusing to us. We feel confident in recommending Paul to any friends or family as he is the best real estate agent to work with.

Will refer him to Everyone

by Paul R. & Marissa D.

I wanted to take a few minutes to write you in regards to our experience with one of your agents, Paul Kocabay. As first time home buyers, Marissa and I were overwhelmed with the process of searching for and ultimately purchasing a home. Early on during our search, we encountered some less than desirable agents whose only goal seemed to be the commission they would received from us buying a home. We felt at times pressured and unsure if home ownership was right for us. Luckily we contacted Paul and began working with him. Paul LISTENED to what we really needed and helped us to zero in on a great home while explaining the pros and cons of each property we visited. He helped with every aspect of the closing (which was a little bumpy) and was there to help with the minor annoyances that come with purchasing a home. He was never too busy for us and always returned our calls professionally and quickly. Paul is extremely dedicated to his profession. His experience and knowledge of the Long Island area was a tremendous asset which enabled us to locate the house that best fit our needs now, as well as in the future. I cannot say enough about how lucky we were to use Paul and we will continue to refer him to anyone we know who is looking for a home on Long Island.

Pleasure to work with

by John K.

I just wanted to let you know that I recently purchased a condo with the assistance of Paul Kocabay. I have been working with him for the past 6 months and he has been absolutely great through the whole process. I appreciate all of his efforts and it was a pleasure working with him. Paul was very helpful and I would recommend him to any one buying or selling their property. Thank you very much.

We just wanted to write and let you know how pleased we were with Paul Kocabay as our buyers agent. He was extremely helpful and always responsive (he even answered his phone while on vacation). We looked at over thirty houses before finding the one we closed on yesterday, and Paul was great about making sure the house we chose was right for us. We will definitely be recommending him to anyone we know looking to purchase a home.

A True Gem

by Aisha H

Mr. Paul Kocabay is a gem. He went above and beyond and I will forever be grateful to him. As a first time home-buyer, this was a very difficult experience for me because I ran into several road blocks. However, Paul held my hand through the whole experience. I was in contract twice, had three inspections, and met many realtors and sellers who were trying to take advantage of my inexperience. Paul always had my best interest at heart and his guidance through the process finally led to my beautiful home. I would and I have recommended Paul to my friends and colleagues because he is a consummate professional and a genuinely nice guy. Elmont, NY

Great Guy

by Saray S & David R

As of yesterday, June 28th, we are the homeowners of a property in Massapequa. We could not have achieved this without the help of our realtor, Paul Kocabay. We can’t thank Paul (Paulie) enough for his professionalism, patience, sense of humor and most importantly, his honesty. My family loves Paul! I will recommend him to anyone who is looking to purchase a home. Once again, we could not have had a better person through this whole process. Massapequa, NY

Thank You

by Tom S & Jessica R

We recently bought our first home on Long Island in N. Merrick, NY. Our realtor was Century 21 AA (in Seaford, NY) and our agent was Paul Kocabay. Usually being a first time home buyer the process is very frustrating and draining, but I wanted to let you know because of Paul, everything was very pleasant and memorable. Paul helped us out anyway he could in order to make this a smooth and enjoyable process. Since that was the case, I will definitely refer him to others as well as use him in the future if I ever decide to buy another home. Thank you for your time and I just wanted to make sure Paul received the recognition he deserves from two very happy and excited new homeowners! Merrick, NY

Pleasant Expeience

by Crystal & Derric D

We are writing to share our home buying experiences with Paul Kocabay as our agent. Paul came highly recommended as he was the agent who helped three co-workers find their dream home. When we first met Paul, we were not quite ready to begin looking at homes. Paul kept in touch with us and when the time was right, he was the first person we called. Paul listened to our needs and only showed us homes that met our specifications. He was always professional and personable. Paul was very patient and knowledgeable. He returned calls, texts, and e-mails promptly and always confirmed appointments. Paul often went above and beyond the call of duty and genuinely likes working with people. We had a pleasant experience searching for a home and that is largely attributed to Paul. Sincerely, Valley Stream

Would Recommend

by Danielle P

Paul has been helpful and knowledgeable since the day I met him at an Open House he was hosting. He listened to my concerns and really let me take the time to think over my decisions and never pressured me into making a rash decision. He stayed on top of every aspect throughout the entire home buying process. He spent time answering my questions and seeking answers when necessary. I have never met such an informative, knowledgeable, patient and professional real estate agent. I am glad he was able to make the home buying process for me seem less daunting. It would be a pleasure to work with him in the future and I will certainly recommend him to future home-buyers." Seaford, NY

One in a Million

by Julieann Stapleton

I'm writing this letter in order to recognize the amazing job that Paul Kocabay has done in helping me to buy my first home. By far Paul has been the most professional person I have EVER had the pleasure of working with. Beyond his exemplary work ethic what I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE most about Paul is that he is genuinely an amazing person. For me buying a home was an extremely formidable prospect and if it weren't for Paul being with me every step of the way encouraging me and supporting me, I think I would've ran for the hills. I didn't feel like just another commission, I felt like Paul was very genuinely trying to find the perfect home for me and my son, which he did, on the first try!!! Paul was always available and extremely diligent in his responses to me and getting things done for me. In the very beginning when I first put an offer on my house, I was so freaked out that I texted him at 2 in the morning telling him I changed me mind. He didn't get angry, he didn't try to scare me into moving forward, instead he asked me what was wrong. He listened to me, he validated my concerns and he pointed out things that I hadn't considered. Paul has never been anything more than 100% patient and understanding with me. I will 1000 times over recommend Paul to anyone I know seeking to buy a home. If you haven't realized it already, Paul is definitely one in a million!!! Thank you for your time and happy holidays! Proud new home owner

Thank You

by James A. & Sharlina Goveia, Sr.

I would like to thank you for all your agency did in assisting my family and me to purchase our first home. Specifically, I would like to thank you for the most tenacious, committed, aggressive, and understanding agent I have ever met: Mr. Paul Kocabay. Paul came to us based on a recommendation from friends at our church. They told us some good things about him. While all that they told us was true, it wasn’t until we worked with him would we be able to understand how great of an agent he is. Don’t get me wrong. We didn’t always see eye to eye and to be honest we were probably one of the most cynical couples with Paul every time he showed a property that he thought we would be interested in.(I as the husband was the biggest thorn in his side) But that is part of his skill, talent, and maybe even his gift. With everything that we threw at him, he just came back even more resolved to get us our house. We began at one time to think that he wasn’t listening to what we said, nor did he appreciate our situation; but the truth is that he had our best interests at the forefront of all his efforts on our behalf. Let us make it very simple. We met Paul almost four years ago when we started searching. For year one, we really didn’t find anything. Year two we sort of gave up but Paul would always drop us an email, give us a call to check-in even when we didn’t bother to pick up the phone. Year Three we found something but our mortgage didn’t come through. But he stuck it out with us. Year Four, we found another home. We were a few weeks away from closing and the seller backed out. Weeks before we had lost our baby and this realtor became a true friend. He showed compassion for the loss of our child more than the house because He cared about us, not a sale, but us. But Paul didn’t rest. While we were healing from our loss, he was looking for houses for us. When we were ready to come back, he was already ready for us. And this January we finally did it. We closed on our first home. God blessed us to have this home and Paul Kocabay as our agent. Your agency is better for having agents like Paul and to be honest we are blessed to call him a friend. Thank you for allowing us to express our appreciation for Paul and the entire Century 21 team.

Wonderful Experience

by Terry Passalacqua, Amityville, ny

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 Paul Kocabay was very helpful in making my home purchase run smoothly. He was always available to answer any concerns I had, and was one step ahead with the paper work needed. I had a wonderful experience and would recommend Paul to my family and friends.

Would recommend to anyone!!

by Brian Taylor, Newark De.

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 Paul went way above and beyond his duties regarding this sale. After recently selling a previous property we moved to Delaware before 40 Butternut closed. The Town of Hempstead gave us numerous problems on Butternut which delayed the closing for several months. Paul handled practically every aspect of the sale and took care of the house for us on Long Island. He dealt with the Town, architects and contractors and kept an eye on the home, saving me numerous trips back to New York. His efforts saved the sale more than once. We are extremely satisfied and would recommend him to anyone.

Above and Beyond

by Valerie Chiuchiolo nesconset ny

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 Paul kocobay was an integral part of my home selling so fast and so close to our asking price. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend this broker and company to anyone who's looking to sell or buy a home in today's competitive market. Hands down he's the way to go! Couldn't be happier. And now I'm celebrating in my dream home! During my purchase of my dream home my broker Paul Kocabay had to go to Turkey to tend to a sick mother. He connected his email and never lost touch. His cell phone was ALWAYS accessible via call or text. In this day of smart technology Paul is not left behind. This was over and beyond and I was sold!

Very compassionate & Kind

by Linda & Christine Nelson Massapequa

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 Paul is extremely down to earth; truly sympathized with our situation, which was very important to us. It wasn't an easy situation for us & he made it easier. It is important to have feelings about someone having to sell their childhood home & losing the last link to family members. He is very compassionate; that was important. I could have gone back to a friend to sell but I am glad that Paul contacted me. He is definately an asset to Century 21. Went very smoothly ; Paul recommended someone that helped me with my variance issues. He was fantastic, like I said in previous comment, very kind & very sympathetic. It wasn't all about money with Paul, he was kind & made this difficult transition a little easier for us ( as easier as it could be). So glad we met him. Thank you Century 21
