About Paul Van Zandt

Whether you are a first-time home buyer, a move-up buyer, a relocating buyer, or an investor I will work to provide you the experience and service to create smooth and seamless transactions. 

Real estate runs deep in my heart.  Before beginning my career in as a licensed real estate agent more than 28 years ago, I was busy working ‘hands on' in the residential construction industry.  These efforts evolved into my business as a custom home builder creating fine homes throughout the greater Tarrant County area.  Working as a builder provided has me with unique insights to real estate over most real estate agents, knowledge of the components and design of the homes.

Homes are not just structures, but are places where people find comfort, where children play, families come together, and memories are made.  I am passionate about real estate.

Team with me for your real estate needs.
