About me

I’m Paul Helgesen, a Vice President of Better Living Real Estate. I have been a Massachusetts and Rhode Island real estate broker since the year 2000. My service area includes all of the south coast from Providence to Cape Cod and as far north as Boston.  I have helped hundreds of people to buy and sell their homes. My goal is always the same - to connect with clients and their families, to gain a thorough understanding of their real estate needs and wishes and to provide an unsurpassed level of service throughout their transaction. My past clients, many of them repeat customers, are happy to provide testimonials about the positive experiences they have had working with me to reach their goals.

Getting involved in my community is one of my most satisfying activities.  I very much enjoy playing piano every Friday morning as a volunteer at St.Luke's Hospital in New Bedford.  It is situated on the balcony overlooking the main entrance and the music creates a nice welcoming atmosphere for staff and patients alike.

In the years leading up to my association with Better Living, I co-owned and operated a franchised real estate brokerage along with my son/business partner. Our market included the entire south coast of MA and most of RI. Prior to 2000, I had over twenty-five years of experience in corporate America, first as Design Director and later as VP Product Development for the Pfaltzgraff Dinnerware Co. and finally as President and CEO of Treasure Craft, the west coast division of Pfaltzgraff.

I am a graduate of Carnegie Tech (now called Carnegie Mellon University) and I served my country in the US Navy. I live in Fairhaven, MA with my wife and we have raised two wonderful sons and a wonderful daughter. In my spare time I play jazz piano and love to travel.

I believe that my life experience, business and personal, has equipped me well to work with people on many different levels, which I enjoy greatly and I look forward to the varied challenges which working in real estate brings.
