After spending more than 14 years as a facilities manager and mechanic for big names like United Airlines and Stanford University, and working all over the world, Paul Cardoso traded it all in for something completely different — a career in real estate.
In 2018, Paul became an agent after spending every weekend in 2017 hosting open houses, an activity he still appreciates. His passion for the profession and his enjoyment of building relationships initially pushed him to become an agent. They continue to motivate him to deliver the best service every time.
Paul grew up in Fremont and currently resides in Newark, but has lived everywhere on the Peninsula from Millbrae to Mountain View. His clients benefit from his extensive area knowledge, his assessments of both on- and off-market homes, and his help in identifying solid investments. As someone who is highly-detailed and organized, Paul works hard to stay one step ahead in every transaction, ensuring a stress-free experience.
Due to his engineering background, Paul is also an excellent problem solver and critical thinker. He stays up-to-date on new technologies and utilizes data and analytics to make sure his clients succeed in the competitive Bay Area market. Although he specializes in first-time homebuyers, he prides himself on being able to serve and get along with all types of buyers and sellers.
When Paul is not working in what he calls “the best career he’s ever had the opportunity to pursue,” he enjoys food tours, wine tastings, and giving back to his community through his volunteer work at Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments (SAVE).
