Testimonials about Randy

“Randy came to our Century 21 office meeting, as a guest speaker. We had 28 agents in attendance. Randy was very knowledgeable, professional and very well dressed. What great revealing information that he shared with us! He opened our eyes as to what an Appraiser really does and how we, as Realtors, can better work with Appraisers. He debunked the FHA myths that we held on to for many years! Many of us avoided selling a house FHA, since we thought that FHA has an inspector that comes out and calls for repairs. “FHA does Not call for repairs”. Thanks to Randy, we will sell more homes going forward. Since approximately 43% of all homes are sold FHA, why would we turn away that huge segment of buyers. We thought that the homes have to be FHA approved. More myths that was handed down to us over the years. Thank You Randy for educating us, Debunking Myths vs Reality and allowing us to sell more homes moving forward.” Joanna – Century 21

“Randy successfully helped us lower our taxes on appeal. We purchased our home for $350,000. It’s now worth, $250,000. However we were still being taxed at a value of $375,000. What a relief to have our property taxes lowered! We called Randy on many referrals, that he is the expert in residential home values. Randy was on time, very knowledgeable, courteous, detailed and accurate. We received our appraisals within three days. With his appraisal, we were able to get our taxes lowered to the appropriate and current amount. We would definitely refer Randy! Tom and Carol – Frankfort.

Randy helped me through my divorce. Me and my husband had to get appraisals done on our house. The judge leaned towards Randy’s appraisal , as the most accurate and most credible. Divorce is stressful, but not with the appraisal process with Randy. Randy is very knowledgeable, polite, courteous, unbiased, objective and timely. Thank you Randy! I now have peace of mind, staying in my home with my children, from getting a fair price for my home.” Tammy – Glenview.

“Our parents passed and we had no idea what their home was worth. Me and my siblings had no idea who to call or what to do. Our attorney asked us to get an appraisal done, as a part of the estate sale. We called Randy, from a referral. Wow! We had no idea their home was worth so much. We heard “word of mouth” from neighbors and a couple Realtors, as to what they “guessed” it was worth. Thanks to Randy, we have peace of mind, getting every penny of what our parents home and land was really worth, after their 55 years of hard work and living there. We would easily recommend Randy. He is very knowledgeable, courteous and timely. He is such a pleasant gentleman to work with. Our parents passing was very stressful and depressing, but, not working with Randy!” Ted and Lisa – Naperville

“Randy works weekends and gives “next day service”! I had a mortgage file come in to me on a Friday, since their previous mortgage company could not close the loan. I asked Randy if I can get a “Rush” order appraisal? Since the loan interest lock expires on Tuesday, I had to close this loan by Tuesday, so the family can move into their home purchase. Randy did the appraisal on Sunday, got it back to me on Monday. It cleared underwriting and we closed on Tuesday. Wow, thanks Randy from all! Their were two other sales pending this closing. Randy gave us “outstanding service” and saved the day for all three families involved. The appraisal was so good and accurate, it flew through underwriting without any conditions. I am happy that he is on our approved appraiser list. Not all appraisers are the same. What an asset he is.” Matt- Loan Officer, Chicago
