On-Air: Sunday, 10-11am
Paul Zarrella’s real estate career has been built on a solid “foundation” formed during his youth. Working summers and weekends for his father’s construction company, Allied Concrete Forms, Paul literally learned about the industry from the ground up.
In 1991, Paul Graduated from Stetson University. Shortly thereafter he formed Paul Gerald Development Inc., serving as the company’s president for the next three years. Over that time he was responsible for the construction and sale of over 25 homes. He did everything from finding and acquiring land, to organizing sub-contractors, to cleaning and preparing the homes for sale. In 1994 Paul changed his business direction. He formed Sunshine Development Inc, a company he still runs today. Through Paul’s efforts Sunshine Development Inc. has purchased and refurbished over 100 distressed properties. Not only has this helped clean up many Rhode Island neighborhoods, but it has also provided many new homeowners with good, clean, affordable homes with dependable systems.
In 1997, in addition to his role with Sunshine Development Inc., Paul became a Realtor. Paul’s love of both real estate and people made him a natural. He was his company’s rookie of the year that year, and it wasn’t long before he became the top selling agent at the office. His achievements recognized with many awards from both the company and the local board of Realtors.
His desire to help others achieve the same success led Paul in the direction of training and coaching. Ultimately, it was this same desire to lead that brought Paul to his next job as the Broker/Manager of a real estate office in East Greenwich RI. In his time directing this office, sales increased by over 500%. In 2006, Paul won a major award from the national franchise. The award recognized the managers of the most profitable offices in the national network. While with the franchise, Paul spearheaded the company’s Rhode Island meetings and training, as well much of its charitable efforts. Helping give back to a community responsible for his success.
In 2007 Paul hit the airwaves as co-host of the Rhode Island Real Estate Insiders Saturday mornings on 790 WPRV. In March of 2010, Paul and the revamped, Real Estate Insiders moved over to 630 WPRO and 99.7FM Sunday mornings at 11:00, continuing to provide listeners with answers to their questions, as well as up to date information on an ever changing industry.
2009 brought a new chapter to Paul’s life. Along with his partners, he has started Williams & Stuart Real Estate. Their objective was to create a local company, with local roots, to be a key part of the community. In a short time since opening, Williams & Stuart Real Estate has grown to more than 35 agents and has sold hundreds of properties. But, this is not what makes this company special. It is dedication to the community that makes it stand out. As its president, Paul is committed to Williams Stuart’s philanthropic efforts.
