“Our first impression of Victor Pais was that he was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. These were the main reasons why we selected Victor Pais. As first-time home buyers, we really appreciated Victor's approach in helping and guiding us to make the best decision. He educated us through the entire process and thoroughly explained the important details of buying a home. He also provided us with a couples activity that really helped my partner and I work together as a team and narrow down our search for a home. In addition, he provided valuable resources, such as booklets, websites, and articles so that we can do our own research and make informed decisions. Victor Pais always treated our questions and curiosities with urgency. He made himself available for all of our inspections and had incredible recommendations. He has a great way of explaining things whether it was positive or negative. Victor was on top of everything and went above and beyond to ensure our needs were met. He did such a fantastic job that we were able to close early right before the holidays! Victor worked miracles that made our first-time home buying experience seem like it was a breeze through the park. Victor Pias treated us like family and always had our best interests at heart. He is a professional who truly understands the value of quality customer service and client-care. He took all the stress and hard work away from us and planned, managed, and navigated everything. He is communicative, detailed-oriented, efficient, and strategic in his approach. He worked diligently to ensure we were taken care of and all basis of our new home were covered to protect us. Victor Pais definitely exceeded our expectations with some pleasant surprises at the end of closing Escrow! This has by far been the most quality customer service and client-care experience I've ever had. I would strongly recommend him for anyone who wants to buy, sell, or simply talk to a trusted professional about the housing market and be advised on what's right for them given their situation. He's now our go-to person for any realtor needs.” -Kia and David, Sacramento/Elk Grove

I wish I could give more than 5 stars, Vic is an amazing realtor who is always available when you need him. He makes it his mission to get to know what you want so that he can find just what you are looking for. He spent a year with my husband and I looking for our family home, always guiding us through the process and helping us make the right decisions. I am truly greatful he was there to help us buy our home. -Giovanna Sage, Rocklin, CA

Working with Victor to sell my home was a wonderful experience. Victor is extremely thorough and a consummate professional throughout the entire process. His knowledge of real estate and of the community was top notch. If I ever have the need for a real estate professional again you can be sure I'll give Victor a call first thing!! - Brenda Schulze, Roseville/El Dorado ills, CA

Victor just helped my mom purchase a home in Davis. This was the second time I have worked with Victor and it was just as good as the first time. He was professional, conscientious, helpful and very thorough. I highly recommend Victor, he is a master of details and a pleasure to work with. Like -Shane Strauss, Davis CA

Victor is a consummate professional. Victor represented me during a buy/sell transaction and I will say had it not been for Victor I would have not been able to complete both transactions. He pays attention to detail and always keeps you informed of the buying/selling process. He has an unrivaled character seeming only to care about the interest of those he serves. He is with you all the way. His professional portfolio of your home will astound you. Simply put...Victor Pais is the agent you want representing you in any real estate transaction. -Carlton Hall RN (Sacramento/Rancho Cordova)

If you need a real estate agent who will work with you and be an advocate for you, then give Victor a call. -Bob Gleason Roseville, CA

Lehman Roseville, CA




As a REALTOR and member of the National, California and Local Association of REALTORS, I take great pride in our industry. I love helping people just like you achieve the American Dream of homeownership. Below are reviews from the many people I have assisted.  

Victor not only helped my husband and I get into a home we had wanted for more than three years, but he also helped us sell our other home in a matter of days – and with multiple offers. If you’re looking for a realtor with integrity, attention to detail and exceptional customer service skills, look no further than Victor Pais. -Karen Garner, Roseville, CA

Victor went above and beyond to help us find our new home. In an industry where integrity, expertise, reliability and quality representation are difficult attributes to find, Victor exhibited all these and more. I recommend Victor to anyone who is looking for a home. -David King, Davis, CA

Victor Pais has taken me and another family member through the process of finding a home during a time the market was glutten with homes but not all in the best condition. Victor patiently sought out the homes we wanted to look at and informed us of where we were in the process every step of the way. Let me say it this way I used Victor Pais's services twice for several reasons: he is very knowledgeable of the real estate market, he is honest, he dots i, and crosses every t until the very end. If I am so lucky to have the opportunity to buy another house I definitely would use Victor Pais! -Berni Aguilar, Roseville CA

Victor has been our agent for over 6 years now. He is always up to date on current trends, rules, and laws. He provides us with excellent search and screening tools so that we can do a bit of the looking ourselves and not have to have the real estate agent always with us. Compared to other agents, Victor brings a level of integrity that is rarely seen. It is not just about doing the deal so he can make money, it is about doing the deal properly so that everyone is a winner. I feel safe and comfortable that I can make decisions based on the knowledge on the table because Victor has covered all the bases for me. I may not always like the facts, but he does not hold anything back just to make the deal happen. It's like he is a partner and has a stake in the transaction. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed in Victor's service. -Steve Droulard, Roseville, CA




Zillow is the premier consumer real estate search portal online. Visited by more than 80 million consumers a month. I am proud to present the many strong positive reviews I have received over the years through Zillow and ou partnership.

Victor did an amazing job helping us purchase our dream house in Land Park. His expertise and knowledge of how to navigate the supper complex process of buying bank-owned properties was instrumental in closing the deal. He always provided us with great advice and had our best interest in mind. Victor would not hesitate to negotiate even for $100 if he could save us $100. Victor always had a plan B and was always prepared for the myriads of issues that came during the closing process. Several times our deal almost fell through, but Victor saved the day. Deep knowledge of the industry, regulations, and processes; great understanding of the market and client needs; great agent; always responds right away. The dude knows his stuff! -Genti D. Sacramento, CA

Victor helped me buy my first house back in 2009 and now helped me to sell it and then buy another house! He is incredibly knowledgeable and explains each step with as much detail as needed. He is always prepared and kept me aware of what could happen during each process. I'll start with buying my house initially. Victor knew what areas to look in based on my needs/budget and was super knowledgeable about everything having to do with houses. He would point out things I would have never thought about! After we closed and moved in, within a week we had a huge plumbing disaster that turned into a flood on the inside of the house. Having no idea what to do I called Victor at some ridiculous hour of the morning and he was able to remind me of the home warranty (I had completely forgotten) and helped me to contact them and get everything fixed. He also supplied me with a list of places I would need to call to set up everything in the house (Smud, PG&E, cable, sewer/garbage, etc). SUPER helpful for someone who literally had no idea what I was doing. Selling my house was not an easy task and Victor went above and beyond just like he did when I bought the place initially. He even volunteered to stay at the house for some repair work so that I didn't need to take additional time off work! There were a lot of hoops to jump through and a lot of issues that arose throughout the process and Victor did everything and anything to keep my best interest at the forefront. He was always available to join in home inspections, repairs, doc signings, walkthroughs, and anything else to ensure I felt comfortable with everything and to ensure that I was informed of anything that came up. He offered to take us around to look at comps and also contacted contractors/inspectors on our behalf to help us with requests! I probably called him 5-6 times a day for a few days with random questions and he never seemed bothered -- always happy to help! Buying my second house was also not the easiest and Victor was always there for us! He helped to negotiate the price (which I didn't even realize was possible on new construction!), would send us pictures of the progress of the house while it was being built (totally appreciated!) and would check in with the builder periodically to ensure we were still on track. We had some issues with the builder's lender which we voiced to Victor while discussing some paperwork. Victor was at the builder the next day expressing our concerns and the day after that we had a new loan officer and a lower rate! Again, couldn't have done any of this without Victor! Despite anything else he had going on, Victor made me feel like I was a top priority. I am SO grateful for everything that he did for me and appreciate more than words can say how helpful he was! The best agent I could have asked for! -Katie Chang Sacramento, CA

Victor Pais was the strongest possible advocate for the sale of my house. Not only was he attentive and thorough in addressing my wishes and concerns regarding the listing and showings, he even got personally involved with helping me get things ready to list the house. He advised me with some legal issues with the buyer and was on top of every issue with the buyer. He knows how to go above and beyond in making sure everything is done appropriately. This was especially important for me since I lived out-of-town. I highly recommend him! -Fred P. Roseville, CA

Victor sold me my house in June 2012 and then he listed and sold it for me in December 2014. I was moving back to Pittsburgh Pa and there was no hesitation on who I was going to call. Victor is my Realtor and after the couple of transactions we had, he's also a man a would consider a "good friend". When you look up the word professionalism in the dictionary, Victor Paris name should come up. It was my honor in working with him and having some laughs while doing it. All I can say, thank you Victor! -Albert Golobish Sacramento, CA

Victor was a very detailed real estate agent and assist in guiding me through the process. He was very diligent about communicating the next steps with me which resulted in a successful transaction He also listens to what I was looking for in purchasing a home. He showed me homes in my price range and the details in which I was requesting. -Diana S. Lincoln/Roseville, CA
