Randy Smith handled a short sale on my condo. Throughout the short sale process, Randy always kept me up to date on the status of each stage. Randy's experience in handling short sales was clearly evident as he thoroughly explained forms that I needed to complete and in answering any questions I had. Randy worked very efficiently by having me complete forms on the internet and in signing forms electronically whenever it was possible. My mortgage on the condo consisted of a first and second lenders. Randy did an excellent job of negotiating with each bank in moving the short sale process forward. Randy was even able to secure funds for my moving and relocation expenses at the end of my short sale. Randy truly did an outstanding job in handling my short sale and I would highly recommend him for any real estate transaction.
Wonderful experience. This is my second purchase with Randy...after the first one, I was convinced he was my kind of salesman -- professional and patient. He knows the area and the market very well, is responsive, but not pushy.
I have used Randy two times, one in making a puchase and one in selling a house. He has been so very helpful and considerate. Throughout the entire process he has kept me informed. He has researched the market and provided me with information and comps. I would most certainly use him again and recommend him to any of my friends.
He always returned my telephone calls, always kept me informed on the progress of my escrow, went out of his way to be helpful and reassuring. I could not be more pleased with his service.

We live out of state. Randy worked with us for over a year to find the right property. During that time we made 4 visits to the area. Each time Randy took us to see many properties from the parameters that we gave him. Randy spent a lot of time, was never rushed and was confident that we would find the right house. We did on our last visit. We are very please with the way everything was handled from the offer to the acceptance, to all of the paperwork, the loan and the closing. We have our new house and will soon move in. We would highly recommend Randy and would definitly use him again if the need arrises.

Plain & simple - Randy is the best. I've never written a review of anything, but feel compelled to do so in his case. Recommended by friends of mine, he took a fairly complicated short sale & handled it so smoothly; other than the handful of papers I filled out for my mortgage company, he took care of everything else: finding 3 new buyers, negotiating with the bank & HOA, plus the countless other details & hang-ups that arose during the process. He is so easy to work with & congenial; nothing ruffles him. Because of him, my short sale was a fairly painless process - I just knew that he would take care of it. Highly recommended - a consummate professional.

We had a wonderful homebuying experience. Randy was very responsive to our questions and concerns. He was extremely flexible when it came to scheduling times to look at houses even if it was short notice. He was very knowledgeable with regard to the communities we were exploring and had sound advice when it came to market conditions and resale values.
