Very knowledgeable
Randy helped me with a FSBO real estate sale to a contractor. He saved me from a couple of predatory buyers and helped me land with the right buyer. He was very knowledgeable about the process, particularly in the details of the contracts. I could not have had a successful sale without his help.

Miracle worker
Randy was able to help me close a short sale that at many times appeared to not be possible. I didn't have to pay out of pocket expenses based on his hard work, and he persevered through a lot of challenges to ensure this worked out positively for me. I'm sincerely grateful and would work with him again in the future.

Intelligent and strategic partner
An astute attorney that understands a multitude of topics. A thoughtful and strategic partner that one looks for in real estate, intellectual property and corporate council.

Difficult, but successful, short sale
Randy did a great job getting a difficult short sale completed and settled with no out of pocket expense. There were many times when I didn't think there would be a positive outcome, but Randy persevered to attain a positive outcome for all involved.

Knowledgeable Short Sale Attorney
Our short sale process was long and frustrating; I'm so thankful we had Randy to guide us through it and advocate for us with our creditors. He explained each step well and gave great guidance on the steps we had to take. Randy was thorough, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I hope to never go through this process again, but if I had to, I would hire Randy again.

Great Communication, Great Advocate
Randall guided our short sale and gave us an excellent experience! He was patient, communicative, and worked through some challenging circumstances. Randall took what could have been a very painful experience and made it happen with ease. We had several challenges with the bank accepting offers and documents, and Randall worked on our behalf with multiple parties within the bank to resolve those issues.

FSBO Expert Advisor
Randy is professional and knowledgeable about FSBO agreements. He is great at advising you with various options + the pros and cons of each option. He will go to bat for you and make sure you are making solid choices that benefit you when selling your home. It can be challenging navigating the sell of such a personal/valuable asset...Randy makes it easy and smooth. I would recommend Randy without question to support me in any real estate transaction.

Skilled Short Sale Negotiation
Randy steered me through a long and often frustrating short sale negotiation with my lender which took over two years to complete. Randy was tenacious and patient. As anyone whose been through a short sale will know, the slightest hiccup or uneasiness on the part of the bank can cause a deal to fall apart. We had 3 deals fall apart because of my lender but Randy fought each time to hold them together as best he could until finally the fourth time through he was able to procure a reasonable deal. I will forever be grateful for his assistance and cannot recommend him highly enough for anyone considering or currently going through the short sale or foreclosure process.
