    Randy did a great job for us. Made excellent recommendations for improvements prior to listing. Kept us informed throughout the process. As we left prior to sale he helped with the house being vacant. He really went above and beyond. I would highly recommend Randy as an agent.

    Randy did an excellent job for us. Good suggestions for simple improvements prior to listing and excellent communication throughout. He helped with the house as we had left prior to sale. He really went above and beyond in that area. We got a good price and were very satisfied. I would certainly recommend Randy as an agent.
    Krista gave Randy 5 stars out of 5
    We are a Navy family that was selling our house in Virginia while looking to buy in Illinois, having no knowledge of the area. Randy was very quick to respond to our emails and always willing to talk on the phone. He was very informative about the area and so helpful. He had great connections and we felt like we had a real team supporting us through the whole process. We are so thankful for Randy and all his help! We were trying to sell our house in Virginia while at the same time trying to buy in Illinois, of which we've never been to, and couldn't have done it without Randy. He kept his cool through it all and was our rock.

    Can I Buy or Sell Without a Real Estate Agent?

    Today's real estate market is one of the fastest-moving in recent memory.
