A native of the northern suburbs of Chicago, Randy graduated from Bradley University in 1999 and started Classic Vending Inc (now Tradecraft Outfitters) and quickly helped to turn the small business into a thriving, multimillion-dollar company. In 2006 he sold his interest in the business with the intention of applying his proven talent as an entrepreneur in the realm of real estate. Harmonizing his extensive business knowledge with his passion for Chicago homes, Randy has once again succeeded in growing a booming business from the ground up.
Over the last 12 years, in the midst of a very challenging real estate marketplace, Randy has found success closing over $135 million in sales over 450 total transactions. Randy is consistently in the top 5% of all Chicago agents and ranked in the top 1% of Chicago brokers in 2016. Randy has built a loyal client base and is fortunate to work mainly through referrals. His laid-back yet professional approach is appealing to both buyers and sellers and the energy and dedication he brings to his clients are unsurpassed.
Randy currently resides in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago and is also an active landlord. Outside of real estate, he enjoys live music and traveling. He recently was named by Crain's as one of the "Most influential residential real estate brokers in Chicago" in 2018, and is privileged to sit on the board of Climb To Safety which teaches financial literacy through early education.
Clients are saying:
"Randy is a great broker! He is supportive, patient, and very knowledgeable."
"Randy is a fantastic realtor and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attentive and knowledgeable resource when buying or selling a home. Randy and his team worked very closely with me in the sale of my one bedroom condo from start to finish and was extremely open and responsive throughout the process. I was expecting a fairly substantial marketing time after researching competing properties on the market, but Randy was able to garner sufficient demand in the first week to generate a bid right away. Randy put together a very nice transaction despite several potential roadblocks throughout the process and was able to deliver a closing in about 30 days time. Exceeded all expectations and am a very satisfied seller!"
"one of the best broker I have done business with. This is my third time and as always Randy, Megan and the team have done an excellent job from beginning to the end. The operate on every aspect as if this is their own business. Excellent personality, caring, responsive and very matriculate"
"We have worked with Randy on three transactions - two sales (one of which is the most recent transaction) and one purchase - and he has always been attentive to our needs, responsible in his actions, forthcoming in his words and, most importantly, has always gone the extra mile for us. We have recommended him to others, all of whom have shared in this kind of positive experience with Randy, and we will continue to recommend him. We consider him not only a top-notch broker, but also a good friend."
"Randy is excellent in his ability to get the job done as well as keeping me up to date on the progress along the way. He is very familiar with the property neighborhood and was able to advise me on rental market and such. I appreciate his help to get my unit rented and will definitely use his service again in the future."
