With a background in sales and merchandising, I decided to pursue real estate in 2005. I became a specialist in probate and senior relocation after several referrals from attorneys and accountants. When asked why they chose me, they all said it was my natural ability to make people feel assured and at ease. Flattered, I dove headfirst into learning all I could about this segment of real estate. In addition to being a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist, I am also a Senior Real Estate Specialist and an affiliate of the Hillsborough County Bar and the North Tampa Bar Associations.

"The realization that my aunt and uncle had to go into a care facility was shocking. This meant appraising content, cleaning out the house, dealing with their 16+ year-old dog and selling their house. The task fell to me - a nephew living 3,000 miles and 3 time zones away - and I was lucky enough to connect with Rande. He was able to arrange the appraisal of presumed valuables, help donate existing canned and dried goods, cleaning of the home, and the suggestion of several estate sale companies. This is in addition to staging, listing and showing the home, and so on. At all stages, Rande provided information, choices, and advice, with the final decisions resting with me."

"Rande coordinated the rescue of my father's dog as well as the cleaning out service and sold the house in a week! He was recommended to me by my lawyer and I couldn't have sold my father's property without him. He is a genuine person and truly cares. I had to communicate a lot with him as I'm out of state and he was always so responsive. He truly cares and will do whatever it takes to make the entire process as painless as possible."
