Who we are


Paul West Linger, Realtor

Paul Linger has been a residential real estate nut for the better part of his adult life.  Even in his early years he recognized the enjoyment it gave him when his parents would drive around town on the weekends looking at different homes and neighborhoods with admiration and interest in the construction phases of new new homes, the architectural styles, and overall curb appeal .

Having spent a majority of his adult life in Seattle he found himself drawn to a career in Health Care where he felt his efforts could directly help the lives of people within his community.  Serving as a Strategic Project Manager for one of Washington States largest employers, a non-profit healthcare consortium, Group Health Cooperative (Kaiser Permanente).

While advancing his skills for managing complex, fast moving projects in his day job, his fondness continued to grow for residential real estate having owned, fixed and sold multiple properties in the Pacific Northwest.  He and his husband eventually went on to design and build custom homes with their own two hands.  Having experience with classic architectural styles as well as modern and mid-century, Paul not only appreciates and understands architectural design concepts but has a good knowledge of what it actually takes to build a beautiful new home or reimagine a classic, from the ground up!

Having joined the Paul Kaplan Group in 2016, Paul now combines these skills and passions to help fulfill the real estate dreams of others!

"We interviewed three brokers, including Paul Linger.  He was by far and away our first choice from the very beginning. We were selling a home that had been in the family for over 50 years and it was a very emotional time for us. Paul helped ease the burden by understanding the situation and making the process as seamless as possible.  He has a fabulous personality and is very warm and kind. He provided great advice as to what we should consider pricing the house and and the reasoning behind it.  He recognized the architect who designed the house and the value that mid-century modern added to it.  He was always available to answer any questions or help with any concerns we had. He even offered to help us clear out the house (which was a huge undertaking) and even took items to the animal shelter for us!  We consider ourselves very lucky to have found him."

" After our first communication via email with Paul Linger, we felt that he clearly understood our needs and wants. Then after our first day of touring homes in the Coachella valley, it was clear that he was the right agent for us.  Paul was really easy to work with and went out of his way to help us through the process, especially since we were purchasing a home in an area of which we had limited knowledge.

We were very satisfied with our entire experience with Paul as our agent, and have recommended him to friends."

"First and foremost - Paul Linger "listened" to me and always ensured his understanding of my position on negotiating our offer price.  His follow up and "management" of the entire process was amazing - thinking his background as a project manager adds to his efficiency and results.  I travel for a living with a very busy work schedule, and Paul calendared my planned travels and ensured deliverables were complete while accommodating my schedule.  I can't say enough good things about Paul Linger - this was probably the MOST efficient home purchase I have ever made (and I have made more than a handful). THANK YOU PAUL (and Paul Kaplan Group)!"

"Paul Linger was working with us as a buyer's agent. His product knowledge is very sound. He also has a keen eye when touring homes and is very well versed on building elements. Perhaps most importantly, however, he listened expertly and provided us with viewing opportunities that perfectly matched our interests. Throughout the entire transaction process he was a solid source of wisdom and reassurance. We greatly enjoyed and appreciated working with him."

"I feel very lucky we had Paul to take us through the process.  We were very inexperienced with house buying and Paul was incredibly understanding and patient."

Paul Garcia-Cox

San Francisco, CA


"Paul was the ONLY Broker who responded to my Associate (Mathew Ladd) who was interviewing prospective Brokers...all others seemed disinterested.  Paul was very timely and attentive as we began negotiations, which helped expedite the final closing date and got me in the home 2+ weeks earlier than originally expected.  TOP NOTCH all the way!  I was completely satisfied with Paul's work to get me into my new home!"
