Tom & Kathleen O’Shane
After living in Orlando area for approximately 20 years, my wife and I decided to move to Boca Grande in 2014. We were introduced to Randy by a close personal friend who had become acquainted with Randy in a real estate transaction. My friend had said Randy had been extremely helpful in alleviation of some problems with the transaction. We were not sure if we wanted to live in Englewood or in Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island. Randy spent several days and countless hours showing us alternatives in real estate in both locations. Randy helped us decide on a beautiful townhouse on Gasparilla Island. His vast experience and knowledge of the market was quite evident throughout the process. Within the last year, my wife and I decided we loved the the area but wanted a single-family home as well as a location with a water view. Because of our excellent experience with Randy on our first purchase of a home in Southwest Florida, there was no question as to what real estate agent we would use. Once again we looked at many properties with Randy’s assistance, and he was able to point out pluses and minuses due to his vast knowledge of the area.In addition, we soon realized Randy has an excellent understanding of good construction as well as bad construction and was able to point out significant factors for consideration on the real estate we were considering. In addition, we also used Randy as our agent on the sale of our Boca Grande townhouse. He was extremely helpful in pointing out any potential buyer inspection problems we may have and assisted in finding resources to correct the potential deficiencies. He was of great assist in the presentation and staging of our home for potential buyers. The end result was the best, a signed sales agreement within 24 hours of the official listing of the home, with a happy buyer and very happy sellers. In looking back in recent years I have been involved in six other real estate transactions with five other real estate agents involved. Clearly in the minds of my wife and I, Randy was the most knowledgeable and professional real estate agent we have used. Would we use Randy again? ABSOLUTELY! Would we recommend Randy to our friends and family? ABSOLUTELY! WHY? His knowledge of the market is unequaled, he has great knowledge of construction and quality of local contractors, and is a great reference for ancillary services – Inspection Resources, Local Moving Companies, Plumbing Services,Electrical Services and many others. He also has excellent resources for staging and presentation of your home for sale, an excellent inventory of both Sellers and Buyers in the market, and is always available when you need him, and if not someone from his office immediately follows up in a professional demeanor at all times and makes a great effort to understand his customer’s desires.
