Abigail "Abi" Paulsen
Dupont / Logan Circle

Client Reviews

Abi Paulsen was the absolute best real estate agent we could have ever chosen to sell our home! She's professional, experienced, knowledgeable and has a very engaging personality. Abi was recommended to us by a friend. Thank you, friend. Through our experience with Abi I, too, can now attest to her tenacity, honesty, practicality and integrity and wholeheartedly recommend her services.


Abi is amazing! My wife and I liked her from the moment we met her and we knew we wanted to work with her by the end of our first meeting. She went above and beyond with several items, like cleaning up after the repair guy finished and painting the house number board because it was missed. She explained things very clearly when I didn’t understand something. This is the first time I had sold a house so I had no idea what was supposed to happen or in what order; Abi cleared it all up and everything went very smoothly. Thanks so much Abi!


We worked with Abi to sell our mom's house when we needed to relocate her out of state. Since we were all out of state during the sale, Abi went above and beyond by helping us find and coordinate contractors to get the house ready for sale. She gave us great guidance on when the house should hit the market and competitive pricing ideas and was with us every step of the way. She's very easy to reach, very proactive, and she was very much an advocate through the entire process and beyond. Her partnership was extraordinary. We literally couldn't have pulled that move off without her. I can't recommend her highly enough.


Abi was always available to answer our questions about any concerns. If I call her and she was not able to answer my call at the time, I can be sure that she would return my call before the end of the day. She worked very hard on our behalf.


It was rather a nerve racking experience week to week. Close Friday, delay, close next Friday, delay, etc etc. What I learned was buying a home from the govt is not a fun process. Our Realtor Agent Abi Paulsen was very professional, honest, and ethical and guided us through all the issues and kept us well informed until our closing. We highly recommend Abi.


Abi is very professional and polite. She will answer all your questions truthfully and explain things to you in the simplest way if needs be. She made it happened for us, even when there was a lot of set backs she went full hundred on our behalf.


Abi was extremely helpful and professional. I would highly recommend her service.


I appreciate Abi's effort in helping me find a home during COVID. It has been a very interesting but fun experience. The whole process felt relatively easy. Abi understood my needs, answered all my questions (no matter the time). She was flexible with my schedule and explained the entire home-buying process. She went above and beyond! I highly recommend her for your next home.


I have been working professionally with Abigail Paulson for years. It would NOT BE an exaggeration to say you will find her an amazing human being: most kind, helpful beyond belief while highly professional. Besides she is brilliant in problem solving of any kind far beyond what would be considered “helpful”. An example would be helping me on the West Coast find a garage space for one of my tenants on the East Coast. I could go on and on but I won’t here. But I’d be happy to speak with you if she asks me to.

I had an exceptional experience working with Abi! Her attention to detail and expertise made the home buying process seamless, which is very important buying my 1st home. She went above and beyond to help me find the best home for me, including drive from property to property during Winter. Also she helped construct a team experienced in utilizing all of the city’s different funding efforts, HPAP, and different mortgage promotions. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of a real estate agent who cares about finding you a home not just an expensive house!


Abi is the most professional, wonderful, and reliable real estate, professional I’ve ever worked with. From the very first phone call, she was incredible. She has truly unique knowledge about the market in the DMV and helped us find the perfect neighborhood (and house!!) for our family. It was the little things that made a difference as well. She was very prompt in all communication and was an expert in all things VA loan related. I can’t imagine navigating this process without her! Because of her competency, great communication, and overall awesome personality (and sense of humor!), she negotiated an amazing deal that made both sides happy. She is a rare gem and we will definitely be going back to her for future properties!


Abi Paulsen is the absolute best! We bought a new home on a tight budget in a hot market and with a rapid turnaround; we then needed to sell our former home, again with a tight budget and quick turnaround. Abi was invaluable throughout the process and we would never have managed to get that elusive extra bedroom without her. She hooked us up with financing, gave us her contractors (!!) to work on our new place instead of her own house so that we could move in quickly, and provided excellent and budget-conscious advice on the sale of our previous property. She worked tirelessly on the sale of our old property and we closed on the sale 6 weeks from the listing date. Abi's experience and knowledge are incredible assets, but her work ethic and ability to recognize and understand each family's individual needs truly set her apart. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Abi Paulsen is someone to have on your team. She’s not afraid of hard work or asking tough questions, she’s detail-oriented and notices important things that most people would overlook, and she’s incredibly reliable. On top of all that, she is a person of integrity and character. For something as important as buying or selling a home, Abi is someone I’d want in my corner.

My daughter happened upon Abi when searching for an apartment. She was moving to a new city with friends and family 1000 miles away and finding her choices somewhat overwhelming. Abi went above and beyond in her assistance. She was extremely patient with a 22 year old leasing her first apartment, explaining do's and don'ts of renting, helping her evaluate multiple possibilities and explaining so many key aspects of of living in the city from parking to public transportation to social events. She even sent a link to proper outerwear for such a cold climate! Would highly recommend.

With few exceptions (like pocket listings), every licensed realtor has access to the same tools, the same listings, the same inspectors, and the same financing options. The distinctions between realtors - and the reason you should choose Abi - goes to who she is and how she does her job. First, and perhaps most importantly, Abi knows how to LISTEN. She is perceptive and thoughtful: after hearing you, she will likely have a better understanding of what you need and want than you do yourself. She will give you an honest appraisal of your wish list, gently guiding you to the best housing choice. What this means is that you will waste minimal time on bad options. A good realtor is a bit like a match-maker, with the difference that, in many cases, home purchases last longer than marriage. Abi will make sure you don't waste time "kissing frogs." Second, Abi is meticulous and tireless. For most people, a home is biggest financial commitment of all. Abi will help make sure this transaction is flawless. Finally, is a cheerful, friendly person with a quick wit and an easy laugh. When you start down this road...and it can be a very long road...the last person you need riding shotgun is a grouch.

Abi is a true professional and offers something unique in her approach to real estate. Her combination of industry expertise combined with her customer-centric style and creative marketing strategies give her an edge over other realtors. We had a contract on our condo in 24 days and Abi was an absolute pleasure to work with!!

I'd like to keep this short; however, I have so much to say. Abi listened to what I wanted in a new home, why I wanted the new home, as well as my budget and she kept all these things in mind from the beginning until I closed on my new home. Abi is very thorough, knowledgeable, honest, pleasant, kind, personable, smart, patient and humble all at the same time. She simply does right by her client. Like most buyers, I was very particular about my new home for my family so I have been on this journey since the beginning of the year. I've interacted with various realtors and none of them were as attentive and intentional as Abi. I never felt like I was just another buyer to her. To this end, Abigail Paulsen did the following for me: She made sure I got into my new home that I love before the "magical date" I gave her in the beginning. Gratefully, Client for Life

Abi was incredible. I was moving to the DC area but couldn’t get down there to look at any apartments. Abi went to each one and sent a detailed video of the entire premises for each place she looked (and the roads/neighborhoods surrounding!). She also offered expert advice about each area of DC/Bethesda and helped guide my search. My only suggestion would be to share the videos via icloud or maybe a google drive folder. we did have some small issues with video uploading and viewing. Overall, Abi is an AMAZING person to have in your corner when moving to the DC metro area. She is knowledgeable, easily reachable, and goes above and beyond for her clients. Thank you Abi!
