Ratings & Reviews

We submitted an inquiry to Zillow about a particular home and Randy contacted me immediately. It was a holiday, however, and I was unable to return his phone calls and emails immediately. Failing to do so upset Mr Hilman greatly and he sent insulting and unprofessional voice messages and emails to me. Moreover, he refused to provide me the information that I requested about the house and accused me of being a "plant" for the selling agent. Given Mr Hilman's outrageous and unprofessional behavior, I would never recommend him.

Thank you for submitting your review. I am disappointed that I failed you. I try hard to work agreeably with prospects who show interest in receiving professional assistance. Evidently I did not live up to your standards and for that I am truly sorry. I wish you the best.

Bought a home in 2014.

Mr Hilman was excellent. He was very responsive to all my questions and continues to provide assistance . Randy called me within minutes of my request for information. He kept me informed regarding the properties I was interested in. Although we were not able to obtain the property I was interested, Mr Hilman continues to keep me informed of similar property for me to consider. I would recommend him without a doubt.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Winniconic, Stratham, NH 03885

I am retired Military and wanted to purchase a home in Wolfsboro Nh. I had tried to purchase a home through Randy, but between feeling put off by Randy never returning calls and continued negativity regarding any property I inquired about, I was left to feel that the price I could afford ($300k) was a waste of his time. Hands down, Randy struck me as the worst and laziest realtor I've ever contacted. I have Randy in my contacts listed as a "do NOT contact" so that I am sure to never call again during my next purchase.

Well, I am more than a little surprised by this review. How is it, for example, that I could both "never" return calls and continue to be negative and lazy about every property you asked about? To my knowledge, I've not assisted anyone who's wanted information on homes in Wolfeboro, NH. And this happened more than once? In 2012? Wow! We're in 2015. I wish you had mentioned your displeasure sooner. My 15 other reviews indicate that I work hard to please. Looks like I a have a way to go with you, stranger.

Very professional, very patient under difficult circumstances, very user friendly, very persistent, and tireless to get the job done, and willing to listen to suggestions.

Thank you, Dr. and Mrs. Gilgore. We surely journeyed a full thousand miles but our work is done. It was a pleasure to represent you both in the sale of your lovely Moultonborough, NH home. I wish you all the best.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in East Wakefield, NH.

Randy was professional and thorough throughout the closing process on our lake home. Twice he was able to salvage the sale when the sellers felt remorse. He is very knowledgeable in his field, we would definitely work with Randy in the future.

Bought a Vacant Land home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Center Tuftonboro, NH.

We are pleased with the extraordinary and outstanding services of Randy Hilman.. We don’t think we could have found a better professional to work with. From the moment we walked into the Center Harbor office of Maxfield Real Estate in May of 2013, Mr. Hilman jumped right on board with us. We were looking around the area, knowing that at some point we wanted to make the Lakes Region our home…..but weren’t sure how soon we’d be able to realize our dream because of family obligations.

However, even knowing that, Randy began to help us and we found that not only did he have a realistic grasp of the market and area but he was also extremely knowledgeable and helpful with questions about where to go for planning board, building plan questions, and soil and wetland info. After looking at multiple properties it became apparent we would have to build our own home to realize our dream.

We wanted acreage, and as you know, sometimes the current owners are not always aware of where their boundary lines are or what is written in their Deeds. Randy helped us with research on tax maps, tax cards, topography, any surveys….complete info. He was ready and willing to march property with us to determine where survey marks were or where old boundary lines existed (all the while careful to warn us to get a surveyor and have title search done). He was a good sport about properties with tick infestation and/or swarms of mosquitoes. We all suffered to find just the right property….and it took time. We were impressed by his ability to “read the land”. In our experience most REALTORS don’t have a grasp of this.

At one point we dropped out of our search because of family obligations. Several months later we resumed and Randy picked up the ball with us again without missing a beat. Randy is very dapper and every bit the gentleman. It was frustrating for us at times thinking we might never find the right spot….but with his help and sound advice, we did. If we had been in the market for a waterfront “cottage”, we believe he would have been every bit as capable in showing and explaining that category as well.

As we got to know more about Randy’s background, we learned he had worked with celebrities. We are both retired white-collar professionals and required an agent who was sophisticated and intellectual enough to relate to us….not snooty, but smart with an expanded horizon of knowledge and sophistication. Randy fits that bill. He was never presumptuous, but rather, always prepared to share information that we could choose to use or store away for another day.

Instead of being relieved (as we were) when we finally found our property, Mr. Hilman seemed to consider this just the next phase of his commitment to us as he made wise recommendations in the wording of our “offer to buy”, knowing what our concerns were. The offer was submitted with Randy making sensible and persuasive arguments (we were sitting in a Maxfield conference room when the call came in) to rebuff the receiving agent who made some protests. With a minor concession on our part, the offer was accepted and we thank our agent Randy Hilman and his ever present professionalism for that. We don’t believe most other agents would have been able to bring this to closure.

We are not the typical buyers. We’re very discerning and know real estate. We currently hold four other properties. We’re not easy to please but found Randy Hilman exceeded expectations and we learned a great deal from him. No other REALTOR we’ve worked with has ever come close to his level of service. In our opinion he outshines his peers and has raised the bar.

We are not given to writing reviews for anyone, any company or any product. We just don’t. However, we felt compelled this time to report the quality of professionalism and service of an agent. Please accept this letter for what it is….sincere appreciation for high quality professionalism.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Center Ossipee, NH.

We first met with Randy in January, when we found a house on Zillow that he showed us. Unfortunately someone had already signed a P&S earlier that day. He kept us in mind and contacted us a few months later with a home that he thought that we would love. On that same day we signed a P&S, the house was perfect for us. He above and beyond till the closing date. Our neighbor couldn't believe how much Randy assisted us. He even said that he knows who to contact when he's looking for a new home. We would highly recommend Randy!! Tim & Mary D

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Moultonboro, NH.

My husband and I had a great experience with Randy Hilman. He did a great job selling our property. He answered all of our questions and was very responsive to all and any of our concerns. He gave us very good advice and we sold the property very quickly. We couldn't reccomend him enough.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Center Harbor, NH.

On the death of my father, I was in need of an immediate appraisal of the family lake house in order to settle the estate—and I had no clue how to go about getting one.

From the moment I walked into Maxfield Real Estate, Randy Hilman set my mind at ease. He met me at the house the very next day, where he deftly took the necessary photos and gathered the pertinent information. And he even made a few follow-up calls with intuitive questions that only someone highly knowledgeable of the area would think to ask.

The highly professional, well-researched final product was promptly expedited.

I have nothing but praise for Randy's professionalism, gregariousness, and knowledge of his field, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Plymouth, NH.

Our family relocated from Seattle to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Randy quickly became an angel in our life. He helped us find and purchase our first home in a wonderful location for a growing family. He is trustworthy, honest and extreamly knowledgeable in his field and of the area. I highly recommend using Randy as your agent if you are in the market to buy.
