Real Estate Agent Paul Wilander


Consistently one of Western North Carolina’s top producers, Paul Wilander’s business model is based on offering the best marketing, service, and guidance to his clients. His sellers benefit from a broker whose goal isn’t to list every property in the region but to sell every property he represents. This client-centric approach gives his clients a commanding edge in the market place. Paul also has one of the highest-selling ratios amongst other top producers.

Before founding Looking Glass Realty, Paul was a top producer for a national real estate firm in the area.

Outside of real estate, Paul enjoys time in the outdoors with his three daughters and dog, Mr. Wendall.

"I originally met Paul Wilander with Looking Glass Realty when we purchased our vacation home in 2021. Paul was the listing agent, and I (as a Realtor®) represented my husband and myself. We had such a good experience with Paul during the purchase, that when it came time to sell that property it was a no-brainer that we would choose Paul to help us. Paul has a deep understanding of the WNC market, which was instrumental in the pricing and marketing of our home...which resulted in a quick sale!

In reflecting on this sale, I realize how fortunate we were to have Paul and Brenda by our side. Their professionalism, compassion, and genuine care made a significant impact, turning what could have been a purely transactional experience into a meaningful journey.

As a fellow Realtor®, I want to express my appreciation for Paul, Brenda, and Looking Glass Realty. It's professionals like them who elevate the real estate experience for everyone involved. We DEFINITELY recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in WNC! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐"

-Vicki Ford

"Paul Wilander handled the sale of my family's mountain property. He did an excellent job. He was patient, helpful, informative and worked very hard to get the best sale situation for us. I highly recommend Looking Glass Realty and especially Paul."

-Antoinette Hamilton

"Paul was awesome! I’m a custom home builder so I am very knowledgeable about the Realestate processes and pricing. He used his marketing and expertise to quickly sell my house “under contract two weeks after listing” for even more money than I was expecting! I wouldn’t hesitate to list my future builds with him again!"

-Ryan Jacques

"Paul and his team are extraordinary realtors, the best I have ever worked with! What makes a good realtor? They have people help stage the house, they take professional pics, they take drone footage, and they create a compelling video story about the house. They really know the market and help with getting the best price by doing extensive research on the history and pull the plat from the county. Paul monitors how things are going consistently. They help create a punch list and provide contacts for people to help with repairs, cleaning, junk removal, closing attorney, estate sales, etc. Viewing appointments were well planned and they communicating feedback each time. When multiple offers came in they helped advise on how to manage them and communicate. When the inspection report came in, they helped advise on negotiating repairs. They made it such an easy process, I can't say enough good things about Paul and Looking Glass Realty. The entire team has such a happy positive outlook they are a joy to work with."

-Brian Graffius


-Glenn Ballinger

"Paul did an amazing job helping us sell our home. He is incredibly knowledgeable, professional and made the process very easy. We were so pleased to be under contract so soon and will be using Paul as our agent for many years to come!"


"Could not have been more accommodating, no pressure. Listened. Actually became a friend. We'd never use anyone else. A class act through and through. Our experience was amazing! Absolute pleasure. We kind of want to buy another house just to have the Looking Glass "Paul" experience. Top-notch!!!"

-Kerri V.

"Paul is excellent as a Realtor and Broker. We have known Paul for a few months and have seen many areas in Brevard. Paul is very knowledgeable, friendly and up to date on all properties. We enjoy working with such a talented, experienced realtor. He is a joy to work with!"

-Ziggy & Joni

"I worked with Paul Wilander and Caterina Nickerson from Looking Glass realty - I just found them on a whim and couldn't be happier . They were both very knowledgable and professional . My deal got a bit complicated, but they helped me through all the hurdles . Would definitely recommend using them for your real estate needs in Brevard."

-Karen Shields

"We just can’t say enough about Mike Carrick—he sold our townhome in record time and provided incredible expertise and personal effort. Further, Paul Wilander is a true professional and provided excellent additional support throughout the listing process. Well done Looking Glass!!"

-Andrea Hurt

"Looking Glass Realty is the best in Brevard! Working with Paul Wilander to find a home was a pleasure. His vast knowledge of the area made all the difference. Since moving to Brevard, Paul has successfully helped me find a home and commercial office space for my business."

-Bill Bennett

"I really enjoyed working with Paul and the entire Looking Glass team! They were professional and extremely helpful, particularly for someone buying a home from out of state. I've bought/sold several homes with a wide array of real estate agents. Paul was the best! "

-9190 Cypress Cove

"Paul was nothing short of fantastic! Having had a negative experience with a prior realtor, I was wary. He set the tone with his calm professionalism, total knowledge of the marketplace and marketing strategies, and very effective negotiating skill. He sold my house within 5 days and was dead on with pricing! He and his team are very responsive and quite frankly, enjoyable to work with! This was an amazingly smooth process and I attribute that all to Paul's character and professionalism. The best I've ever worked with and highly recommend!"


"Paul was a total joy to work with. He had our house under contract in three days of listing it - and that was in November 2022 where the real estate environment had shifted to a buyer's market. Paul even went above and beyond with doing extra prep work to ensure the photos were stunning. He made all the negotiations seamless and easy. Paul is definitely the best real estate agent I've ever worked with and would definitely recommend him to anyone in the Brevard, NC area."

-Jonathan Martin

"Paul was very knowledgeable, helpful and understanding. He was always responsive and professional. He is also very above board. This property needed to be sold quickly. Showings began right away. He even picked up the owner at one point when she couldn’t drive. He was always available by phone or text. A pleasure to work with."


"We have worked with Paul on three separate occasions and each time I have been extremely impressed with his professionalism, advice, negotiation skills, and management of the entire process from beginning to end. In addition, his support team at Looking Glass is top notch. I would strongly recommend Paul for either purchasing or selling a home in the Brevard NC area. His knowledge of this market is exceptional!"


"Huge thanks to Paul Wilander and Looking Glass Realty for their help with our recent home sale! It was the smoothest real estate transaction we have ever had. Paul is very knowledgeable of the local housing market and helped us market our home and get multiple offers within days. He was always available for questions and advice and made sure we were kept in the loop with everything going on while also keeping everything seamless so we were never stressed with the small stuff. Selling a home is never an easy thing, but Paul made it a pleasant (and profitable) experience. Thanks again!!"

-Meighan Browning

"Choose Paul for excellent and unique marketing plus timely feedback throughout the process. Add in easy to work with and you have found your realtor. Our property could have fallen into the 'hard to sell' category yet Paul's marketing turned it into a quick sale for an excellent price."


"We could not recommend Paul and Looking Glass Reality more! We were blown away by how accessible Paul made himself so that we could see every potential dream home and if for any reason, he was unavailable, he made sure someone from Looking Glass could assist us. Paul has extensive knowledge of the area and even went as far as to show us local parks and answer questions about area schools, resources/activities, and hiking trails. He took the time to understand what we were looking for and was exceedingly patient with us to ensure that we found just the right home in just the right area for our growing family. He took the stress out of the buying process for us and was our advocate the entire way. We would confidently recommend Paul and Looking Glass Reality to anyone for the best possible real estate experience in Transylvania County and beyond."

-Jocelyn Turner Whitlock

"It was with mixed feelings that we recently put our house in the mountains on the market. I have to share the wonderful experience we had working with Paul Wilander of Looking Glass Realty. He is knowledgeable, responsive, and really stays on top of things from start to finish. He knows how to price based on market conditions and has great support services included such as staging and a strong media presence. And he is a genuinely nice, ethical guy. Selling can be stressful; Paul made it such a pleasurable experience that I thought I should share."


"Paul was a pleasure to work with and did a very thorough job listing and selling our home. As this was our first home sale, we needed all the help we could get and Paul laid out the process and enlisted a professional team to get the house listed and sold in (seemingly) the blink of an eye."


"Paul was a great partner through the process. Market and pricing knowledge, staging knowledge, and the use of all the right modern tools made for a great experience."


"Paul was a cosumate professional at all times and a huge asset to our real estate process in Brevard. It was our pleasure to work with his team, and benefit from his local expertise. He earned our highest respect."


"Paul and the team at Looking Glass Realty excelled at communication with my wife and I on both the sale of one home and purchase of another. Paul carefully weighed in on the negotiations that had to transpire on one of the transactions always with an eye toward our benefit but also being realistic. The overall knowledge of local real estate by Looking Glass is exceptional and it made a significant difference - particularly in our sale.
I would highly recommend Paul Wilander and the Looking Glass team."


"Paul is a tremendous asset in selling or buying a home. He is committed and proactive with communications, follow up and responsiveness. My husband and I first met Paul in 2014 when moving from Florida to Brevard NC. He was prepared to show us the homes that were of a specific interest to us demonstrating he was prepared for our visit. When we decided to downsize and still live in Eagle Lake community once again he was prepared and did his homework capitalizing in our interests and best value. Paul guided us along the negotiations in both buying and selling and were successful and very pleased with is performance with our end goals. Thank you"

-Layla Hartmann

"Paul was great to work with. He had a well thought out strategy of how to list and sell our property quickly. He was responsive and knowledgeable of the market."


"Paul was absolutely amazing throughout the buying process in Brevard. He did whatever it took to help us find our dream home. Not only did he work hard but he was always available for even the simplest of questions. His positive attitude and honest work ethic made the home buying process much easier and we could not have done it without him . He constantly went above and beyond to show us homes or gather information on a listing. If you are buying or selling a home I would highly recommend Paul Wilander of Looking Glass Realty. You will not find a harder working real estate agent. Most importantly he is a great person who always had our best interest in mind. He truly is a rockstar and you can rest assured knowing you have someone like him working for you. Paul is simply the best. Who we can now proudly call our neighbor and friend."


"I couldn't recommend Paul more! His patience through both selling our house as well as purchasing our new house was exceedingly high. Paul went out of his way to help us find and secure our new home. He provided excellent professional advice to help guide us through the process."


"Paul was recommended to us by a trusted friend with deep experience in real estate, and we are so happy we followed her advice. Paul is very approachable and easy to communicate with. He has real talent in developing listings, too, developing a beautiful video tour of our house with a great voice-over. The house was on the market for just a day before we got three offers, all at or above our asking price! Paul worked very well with the buyer's realtor who was from a different firm, and there were never any problems in communication at all. He was on top of every single detail on the due diligence list, and we handled everything long distance, until we actually had to go move our belongings out right before closing. The whole process took about a month to conclude. I would go with Paul again without hesitation. He really knows what he's doing and is scrupulously honest and straightforward."


"I choose Paul to help me find a home in Brevard due to other reviews and looking at his listings. He zeroed in on my important 'must haves' and showed me several properties meeting those requirements. Once I found 'The One' he helped me in the negation process. Once we started Due Diligence Hannah was excellent organizing all the inspections. I recommend Paul and his team to anyone looking in this area."


"Working with Paul has been a pleasure from start to finish. I would always use Paul again and would recommend him to anyone. Paul knows the communities in his area well and has a very pleasant, competent and accommodating team to match his approach. The seller’s side was not always easy to work with and Paul navigated each step from offer to close calmly and skillfully.

On a side note, the closing attorney Don Jordan in Brevard, NC, charged fees that were substantially higher than those of others. I did not learn about his fee until 2 days prior to close. Simple calculation and spelling errors in Mr Jordan's closing docs' draft had happened to me in other closes, so no surprise there.

However, because of the high fees, I will not use Don Jordan's services again and would suggest to anyone looking for a closing attorney to shop and compare rates."


"We couldn't be happier that we had Paul Wilander as our agent. He was totally professional and very pleasant to work with. He had everything in order before the For Sale sign went up, and the house sold within a few hours. Thank you so much Paul. You're the best."


"Paul has represented me as a seller and as a buyer. He is honest, responsive, professional & knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to work with him in the future and I highly recommend him to anyone interested in selling or purchasing property."


"We could not recommend Paul more! We were blown away by how accessible Paul made himself so that we could see every potential dream home. Paul has extensive knowledge of the area and even went as far as to show us local parks and answer questions about area schools, resources, and hiking trails. He was exceedingly patient with us to help ensure that we found just the right home in just the right area for our growing family. He took the stress out of the buying process for us and was our advocate the entire way. We would confidently recommend Paul to anyone for the best possible real estate experience in Transylvania County and beyond."


"Paul is an exceptional realtor and we are so glad we were able to work with him again to sell our home. Paul knows the Brevard market extremely well and guided us in pricing our home appropriately. He was quick to offer insight when we needed it and empowered us to make great decisions throughout the selling process. Paul is honest and trustworthy and he's also a lot of fun! We couldn't recommend him more!"

-MacKenzie Henry

"Paul went above and beyond to make our sale go smoothly. I have bought and sold numerous homes over the years. I am also a licensed Florida realtor. Paul has been the most professional and thorough realtor that I have ever dealt with. Not only would I recommend, I would urge you to hire him for any of your real estate needs."



-David Hirschman

"Paul is amazing!"

-Per Blomquist

"Paul and his team are excellent realtors, very professional and kind. We had a unique property for sell and Paul was able to find the right buyer. Highly recommended!"

-Clayton Cochran

"I have bought and sold several homes and I have never had a Realtor that comes close to Paul. He was absolutely amazing. You can possibly ask for a better Realtor. I highly, highly recommend, Paul to anyone looking for a Realtor."


"Paul did an excellent job of setting timeline and expectations upfront and delivering an asking plus deal. If you use Paul, listen to him! Showing a home is hard work, but it certainly paid off for us."

-wandajbrown 207

"Thank you for a great experience Paul, and for being so patient with us! The process was quick and easy, and the electronic signing was a breeze! I especially appreciate your help with the Inspection Report items, and getting the items fixed satisfactorily."


"An excellent realtor, Paul will pursue what is in the best interests of his clients. He has an extensive and an in-depth knowledge of the local real estate market. He listens to you, provides exceptional guidance, and is a superb negotiator. Paul knows the local market so well, in part, because of his varied activities in the community: as a soccer player and coach, avid mountain biker, and dedicated dad. In working with Paul, we have seen and experienced how others in the community respect and trust him. He is a great friend to have.

In addition to his own capabilities as a realtor, Paul is a team builder and leader. As the Agent-in-Charge of Looking Glass Realty, Paul has built a strong team. The other brokers whom we have met at the firm, both in Brevard and Asheville, have a good understanding of their respective markets, know how best to represent you, and work well with one another.

We have bought and sold a number of residences, and some of the real estate agents who have represented us in the past have been quite good. Paul, however, is the best…he is in a league of his own!"


"Paul took us on a tour through all areas in Brevard and the surrounding areas. We were quiet unsure as to exactly where we wanted to be and what size house we wanted. Paul spent an entire Saturday with us and by the end of the day we actually found a house! We lived in Ohio at the time and placed all of our trust and care in Paul. He handled every detail quickly and kept us informed at every point along the way. Buying a home while living in another state could have been a nightmare but Paul did an amazing job and we will definitely work with him again!!"


"Paul is amazing. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive. Everything he did for us as the seller led to an easy, low stress process. With his guidance, we received multiple offers and were under contract in less than two weeks. The house ultimately sold for as much as we had hoped for. We couldn't be happier."


"Paul is amazing! He made the entire home buying process a breeze. He was always there for us when we had questions with a smile and positivity."

-anna lmbt

"I would highly recommend Paul Wilander to sell your home! Not only was he just plain easy and enjoyable to work with, but he knows the area. He has realationships with local contractors to get needed work done. For us that was huge, because we were trying to sell our fathers house and do not live in the area. So he was able to play a huge part in getting the house ready to put on the market. With regards to communication, Paul responded very quickly to questions that we had and if he did not have the answer, he could refer us. It is obvious that he knows his market and is willing to do what it takes to get your home sold!"


"Without a doubt, Paul is the most honest realtor in the business. He has the experience and expertise to negotiate both fairly and firmly and closed the deal quickly at my asking price when selling my home. He took the time to explain the best course of action every step of the way. He's the best person to have on your team when buying or selling a home."


"Working with Paul was great. He showed us a lot of property and he had the patience to hang in there until we finally found what we wanted. He was very active during the buying process and helped us through inspections and the closing. We will definitely use Paul again and highly recommend him."


"Paul is the best agent we have ever worked with. Great knowledge of the market, very honest and promptly responsive to questions. We were sellers and were very impressed with his marketing skills."

-Janine Pyrek

"Paul has handled multiple transactions for me and I highly recommend him. Paul and his Team are very responsive and work tirelessly on behalf of their Clients.

-Travis Smith

"With Paul's help, I sold my house in Brevard, NC. My experience working with him exceeded my expectations. Overall, it was a very positive experience and I would recommend him and his firm without hesitation."

-Keith Mast

"Paul was fabulous to work with on the sale of my father's home. He is kind, fair, and honest and was incredibly helpful. I live nearly 2000 miles away and Paul took care of everything from finding and managing contractors, clearing final furniture from home and keeping our family apprised and informed throughout the sale process. I highly recommend Paul."


"From the minute I first talked to Paul Wilander, I was happy to work with him. He's a great communicator - responsive and available. Paul knows his stuff and is friendly, funny, and helpful. Working with him was easy and even enjoyable. He kept us updated, never made decisions FOR us, had a strong grasp on what we should push for and what we shouldn't, and negotiated well on our behalf. Paul helped us make decisions, using his knowledge of the area and the market. We are incredibly happy he was our realtor and we'd use him again in a heartbeat."

-Amber Craig

"Paul is truly the absolute BEST real estate agent we have ever had the pleasure to work with. His knowledge of the area and goal to truly find you the home of your dreams. We would never work with anyone else. He is not only wonderful to work with but we considered him a true friend.

You will not be disappointed!!"

-Kerri Volino


-Ryan Sigsbey

"Paul at Looking Glass Realty represented us during the recent sell of our home. Our experience was exceptional from the on point marketing plan to the troubleshooting and navigating of issues that came up along the way. We can't recommend Paul enough. He is a wonderful agent. We appreciate all the work he did for us."

-Andi Sigsbey

"Paul Wilander is the best agent we have ever worked with. He was easy to work with and very responsive to inquiries and requests. Paul was excellent at marketing and selling our home. We would definitely recommend him!"

-janine pyrek

"I was very fortunate to have Paul work with me to sell my non-traditional rugged cabin and remote property-not a easy or typical circumstance. He was consistently hardworking, responsive, creative, knowledgeable and very patient. He gave constructive advice and was open minded to problem solving with me. Although I've been living on the west coast, the distance did not compromise the attention Paul gave to my unique situation. I highly recommend him and his staff."

-Hilary Thomas

"I recently closed on my second property in 4 years with Paul and the Looking Glass Realty team. In both instances I couldn't have been more pleased with my experience. I find the LGR team to be honest, personal, knowledgeable and diligent. I let them know exactly what I was looking for and they offered me numerous properties that met my criteria and were within my price range. They expertly guided me through my negotiations with the owners and did so in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend the LGR team to anyone looking to buy property in Western North Carolina."

-Russ Jackson

"We feel very fortunate to have Paul Wilander as our real estate agent. He showed us countless homes and went the extra mile to help us find a home that had everything we wanted. Paul is professional, intelligent, knowledgeable, patient, responsive, flexible and has a genuinely likable personality. We would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking to buy real estate in this beautiful area of Western North Carolina."

-Claudia Sumner

"Paul Wilander is a rare gem... the best of the best, in terms of both being a realtor and all around great human being. You will not find a more honest, aware, caring or professional person to meet your buying or selling needs. I speak from experience, as Paul has represented me from both sides.
Paul does his homework, knows his markets, always speaks the truth and brings great personal integrity into every conversation and action. He is a go gettern and gets the job done in record time with both buyer and seller happy.
I have personally dubbed Paul Wilander the "magic man" of realty in Brevard. He is and will always be my go to person for buying or selling. Paul's excellence is unrivaled. He deserves much higher than this limited 5 star rating allows."


"Paul is amazing! He helped us buy our home in Brevard when we moved there and then sell our home several years later. He is responsive, knowledgeable, strategic, and an overall joy to work with."

-per j blomquist

"My review of working with Paul is overwhelmingly positive. The entire process of selling our home and buying another went so smoothly and we felt at ease knowing we were in such competent and experienced hands. Paul's communication skills are excellent. He's quick in his response time and understands when phone conversations are more helpful than quick texts or emails. I think this comes intuitively to him and it's a great asset to his clients. He also has great working relationships with other regional real estate professionals as well as contractors, subcontractors, insurance agents, and mortgage lenders.
In preparing our home for sale, Paul was very clear about his suggestions. He priced our home very well to sell quickly and we feel confident that we got the best price (and best buyers) for the sale. The process of the sale was so smooth and Paul made sure we were comfortable with each step. His assistant Brenda was also extremely helpful in the sale of our home!
In buying our new home, Paul showed great patience and balanced his ability to listen with giving his advice on the purchase. He negotiated the Offer to Purchase with ease and again, we felt he was looking out for our investment while simultaneously understanding the "feeling" part of buying a new home.
The transition of moving was made so much easier by Paul and his resources and helpful nature.
We feel really lucky to have worked together and we will continue to recommend him and use his expertise in the future!"

-MacKenzie Henry

"I was very fortunate to have Paul work with me to sell my non-traditional rugged cabin and remote property-not a easy or typical circumstance. He was consistently hardworking, responsive, creative, knowledgeable and very patient. He gave constructive advice and was open minded to problem solving with me. Although I've been living on the west coast, the distance did not compromise the attention Paul gave to my unique situation. I highly recommend him and his staff."


"When we decided to sell out home in Brevard, NC we selected Paul Wilander of Looking Glass Realty as our listing agent. Believe me, we are glad we did. We expected to have our house on the market for many months. Never in a million years did we expect to sell our house in less than one month! Paul’s marketing plan for our house went way beyond listing it in the MLS. He used marketing channels such as social media and online listing websites like Zillow. But in addition, Paul created a professional video of our house that was posted along with the traditional written listing. If you are looking to buy or sell in the Brevard, NC area you can’t do better than using Paul Wilander of Looking Glass Realty as your agent."

-Joyce Adams

"My husband and I would recommend PaulWilander very highly to help you sell you home in the Brevard area. His team took great pictures of our mountain home from the inside and outside to show our home greatest features."


"We feel very fortunate to have Paul Wilander as our real estate agent. He showed us countless homes and went the extra mile to help us find a home that had everything we wanted. Paul is professional, intelligent, knowledgeable, patient, responsive, flexible and has a genuinely likable personality. We would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking to buy real estate in this beautiful area of Western North Carolina."


"Paul was a delight to work with in selling our home in Brevard. He was courteous, reliable, responded in a timely manner to our phone calls, was always present (if his schedule permitted) when other realtors showed our property, had a lot of knowledge about the local real estate market, did not hesitate to make suggestions that would make our property more marketable and appealing. After the home inspection there were a few issues that had to be addressed and Paul guided us through the process of getting the issues taken care of. He was never aggressive in his mannerisms and we found him to be very likable and always very dependable. We had not moved in 35 years and, to say the least, we needed a lot of guidance in working through the process of selling our home. We felt, and still feel, that we were truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Paul Wilander at Looking Glass Reality and would highly recommend him!
Thank you, Paul, for making this a pleasant experience and for the opportunity of getting to know you!"

-Joe and Barbara Johnson

"Paul Wilander helped my elderly parents list and sell their home in Pisgah Forest. He was very respectful, thoughtful and kind in the way that he related to them. Because they were not able to drive to meet him at certain points he was willing to drive to their new residence in Asheville and patiently explained essential paperwork to them. Based on my experience and my parent's experience with him, I would recommend him very highly."


"Since 2007 I have photographed hundreds of houses for Paul Wilander and produced at least 100 of his unique property marketing videos. The time and effort he puts into these videos pays off for both his sellers and buyers and sets his marketing apart from the rest. Paul is one of the most talented and hard working brokers I have ever met and one of the true top gun realtors in Western North Carolina."

-Heath Cowart

"Paul was wonderful to work with. I’m a licensed Realtor in Utah and we needed to find a reputable Realtor to sell our parents house in Brevard, NC. We had a previous agent attempt to sell the house for 6 months with no success. Paul sold the house for us within a few days and had it closed within a few weeks. Paul listens to your concerns and knows how to be agreesive to get the house sold. His marketing skills are outstanding. As a Realtor myself who expects outstanding service to be a top priority, I can promise you that you will be happy with Paul as your agent. Thank you Paul for all of your hard work and for taking great care of us."


"What a wonderful experience working with Paul has been. A true professional with a great personality and so knowledgeable in his field.
We love our new home and life in Brevard! Paul has become a wonderful friend and we highly recommend Paul for all your real estate needs."


"It is a pleasure to work with Paul. Paul is a true professional and went above and beyond to sell our home. Paul even drove my closing check to my mother so she could deposit the check. We were out of town for the closing and Paul took care of everything. He also found a roof repairman to fix a vent that was loose and in need of repair."


"Paul was GREAT! He was patient with us during a long year where we kept looking then stopped looking. When it finally was the right time, Paul, got us into the perfect house really quickly. He knows everything housing about the area and knew exactly where to take us. Paul was laid back and easy to work with, but also professional and on top of everything. We highly recommend him if you are in the market to buy or sell!"

-Gina Malefyt

"My wife and I had a great experience with Paul. He understood our property and found a buyer quickly. He negotiated terms that suited everyone's needs and was responsive throughout the process. We would recommend him to anyone."

-josh hallingse

"During our thirty years of marriage, my wife and I have bought and sold ten homes all across the country. We have had the privilege of working with some outstanding real estate agents. Paul has earned our respect as one of the finest agents we have ever worked with. His low key, professional, and knowledgeable approach to handling the entire process from listing to closing was impressive. We highly recommend him to handle your real estate needs."

"Paul Wilander has been an incredible partner in the sale of our home. He is extremely well versed in both the industry and particularly in our area of Western North Carolina, targeted in Transylvania County. His advice and wisdom related to pricing, patience, and final deal were invaluable. We greatly appreciated his insights on how to present our home, respond to inquiries, and manage the one and only (but final) offer we received. High praise for one of the best we've ever worked with."


"Working with Paul Wilander of Looking Glass Reality was a pleasure. He was professional, friendly, and easy to talk to. His video was not only a tribute to my sister's professional life, but displayed the beauty and charm of her impressive home. I have and will continue to recommend Paul to others who need to sell their homes."


"Paul Wilander is amazing. My family moved out of state when our house went on the market and Paul took care of everything. He made the process as stress free as possible and was very responsive. Our house sold in less than a week. I would recommend Paul for all your realtor needs!"

-Clayton Cochran

"Paul's knowledge of our market and his advice was terrific. His online video and 3-D tour of our house was a key in the timely sale. In fact, our buyers signed a contract before seeing the interior of our home in person. They used the online tools Paul so expertly provided. We appreciate Paul's commitment to selling our house. And, it was fun working with him."


"very competent. exceedingly resourceful with excellent and timely support from quality contractors for repairs, cleaning and moving belongings. the best real estate experience we have ever had."


"Paul helped us to find a home over an 8 month period of time. He was thorough in his knowledge of the area and most patient with us while we looked. He helped us negotiate an unusual contract and was very responsive to our needs during the due diligence period. He was as good as I would expect any agent to be and I have unusually high expectations."


"I have purchased 8 homes in my time and this the 9 th was the best experience ever strictly because of Paul. Warm, knowledgeable, professional yet personable, I felt Paul had our backs the whole way. If you are looking to sell or buy Paul is your person!"


"Thanks so much for steering all these things through the choppy waters while we were doing the moving Armageddon thing. Though we may have been too distracted to show it, we deeply appreciate the pivotal importance of your staying on top of all the details and guiding us and our buyers and seller to solutions instead of just letting us collide over the problems. And in case we didn't say it before, we also appreciate your willingness to chip in from your well-earned commission in order to make our sale come out where we needed it to. You can believe we will be singing your praises to anybody looking to sell their house!"


"Paul was a wonderful Realtor to work with in the purchase of our new home. We were moving from out of state so our situation was somewhat difficult in that we only could come and look at houses on certain weekends and Paul was very flexible and accommodating to our needs. We also needed his help and expertise in doing some things in the buying process remotely and Paul helped us every step of the way. His knowledge of the real estate market and the local area helped us land in the right house in the right part of town for the right amount of money. We would definitely use Paul again to either buy or sell a home and would highly recommend him to anyone else."


"Paul "Ace" Wilander is like the Yoda of real estate. Very impressive local knowledge, masterful process expertise, immediate responsiveness and excellent negotiation skills are just a few ways to describe him. If you need a 4 bed 3 bath home, he'll find it for you. If you need a 3 bed 2 bath home, he's your man. If you need a 1 bed 7 bath home, it may not happen but he'll try his best. So when you ask me if I would use Paul again the answer is easy....YES."


"Paul is an awesome Realtor. He displays a great balance of professionalism and friendliness, is very considerate of client needs, is realistic and honest, a strong negotiator, and is well-connected. I would (and will) definitely recommend his services to others who are looking to buy a home in the Brevard area."


"Paul has been a pleasure to work with in all facets and knows the Western North Carolina market as better than anyone! I would most certainly recommend Paul to anyone looking in this market."


"Paul recently assisted my wife and I purchase our first home as a married couple. The home is a foreclosure, and there were a myriad of details that we had to sort through to be informed during negotiations, and submit effective offers. Paul is a rock, always cool, calm, and collected. He was there anytime we had questions or wished visit the house to check on this or that throughout the process. During our negotiations, another realtor from Paul's company had a competing bid with ours. We could not have been more impressed with how ethical, and professional Paul conducted himself and his company throughout this situation. We were fortunate to end up with the house that we are in and couldn't have done it without Paul. My wife and I will continue to use Looking Glass Realty when we buy or sell. Paul and his crew make the process very easy and accessible to anyone. Thanks Paul!"


"When I decided to work with Paul Wilander I was instantly impressed by how helpful and supportive he was during both the search process and buying process. Paul set up a Listings Cart through his website which automatically delivered the MLS listings of homes that met my search criteria every morning as they came on the market. Ultimately, this led to me seeing the home of my dreams on the very first day it became available and I was able to also be the first to make an offer. He helped me get a great price on an already well-priced home and also negotiated with the seller to complete repairs before purchase. He took the time to educate me along the way which I appreciated being a First Time Homebuyer. Paul was always available and returned my calls within seconds. I would definitely reccommend him."


"We decided to work with Paul Wilander of Looking Glass Realty because we believed him to be honest, ethical, dependable and professional. He was also willing to make the investment in producing a professional video tour of our property listed with him which we felt would enhance our chances of selling by penetrating the marketplace both online and in print. Paul was very well-informed about the development within which our home was located and, therefore, knew when he had found the right buyer - a nature lover and free spirit who we feel is a perfect match for our secluded property. We could not be happier!"


"Coming from PA, we needed someone who was knowledgeable about Brevard, NC, and about Transylvania county. Paul was the perfect realtor for us. He quickly grasped what type of property we were looking for and within a month we found our dream house. He was very helpful during the due diligence period and all the way through settlement. We recommend Paul to anyone looking for a home."

-Keith Mast

"Paul was incredibly helpful and patient in our search for a home. He showed us countless houses over the course of the last year and always seemed excited to help us find a place we love. Once we found the home for us, he helped to manage the whole process which was great as first time home buyers who were not sure what to expect. Paul's local knowledge about the properties and neighborhoods lead us to just the right place for us. We were even able to negotiate a great price with Paul's help. We could not be happier and would confidently recommend Paul to anyone who needs a reliable, friendly and intelligent real estate agent."
