Randy Goodson's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
Randy Goodson

    • Randy is an excellent realtor. He is very friendly, knowledgeable and persistent. If he says he is going to do something he gets it done. He knows the ins and outs of the market and follows through on all details. He is a good negotiator and I feel that we got the house for a good price and in time for us to move in before the lease expired on our apartment. I would definitely recommend Randy to other friends or family looking for a new house.

    • Randal represented the sale of our family home. I live out of state and relied exclusively on Randal's knowledge of the market and the selling process. I was most impressed with his responsiveness both to my inquiries and in providing information as it happened. This greatly settled an already stressful situation. I highly recommend Randal to anyone looking for a professional who will deliver a high quality service.

      - zuser20151022202656350
    • Randy was very knowledgeable in my neighborhood market. He created professional quality video and photos and marketed our house in multiple channels. The end results was heavy traffic to our house. He was easy to work with, always accessible. My wife and I were very pleased with his service.

    • We had a property to sell.. He found me the a buyer within 24 hours...??? Amazing Personality and He is our Family Friends for ever now..

      - Simone
    • Randy is simply outstanding. He was on top of every single detail and extremely responsive. He is a very experienced professional and a pleasure to work with. The President of the condo association said that his marketing materials were the best she's ever seen. She also said that our sales price was one of the highest for any condo in the complex -- and this was a unit without any recent updates. I interviewed three other realtors. They all recommended listing prices lower than Randy. I thought they just wanted to get a quick sale and move on. I challenged Randy on the listing price he recommended to make sure that he wasn't one of those realtors who wanted to give an unrealistic price just to get the listing. Randy explained his rationale and market data and it was clear that he knew exactly what he was talking about. Randy was interested in achieving the best possible result for his client. And he did! He sold the condo in only 13 days and got us a great price. He then continued to stay on top of every detail until the deal closed. Fantastic client service. Randy would be my one and only choice if I was to buy or sell again in the area. Thank you, Randy!

    • Randal Goodson is extremely professional. He was patient, kind and knowledgeable abut the real estate market. He helped me to negotiate a terrific price for my new condo. I took a very long time to decide on which condo that I wanted. Randal never made me feel like I was a bother. Even though my funds were limited; Randal made feel like I was just as important as someone who had millions of dollars to spend on a property. I have already given his card to my friends coworkers and acquaintances who are looking to sell or buy a home.

      - Vangeline
    • We were very fortunate to find Randy. To this day I dont remember how it unfolded but Randy helped us find our dream home! He is incredibly knowledgeable without a doubt. Additionally, his honesty is refreshing and what a person expects in a realtor. We trusted him wholeheartedly! Randy also has a way of making you feel like youre his only client, another masterful quality anyone would embrace. If you have the good fortune to secure Randy to sell or buy a home, youre winning!

      - zkp003
    • Very professional, responsive and great to work with, top notch all around. We have listed the house on Friday, had dozens or so showings on Friday and ten or so on Saturday, and accepted above the listing price offer on Saturday evening.

      - user5191984
    • Randy helped us find a home in the middle of a hot market! He is an incredibly knowledgeable real estate agent and pointed out several pitfalls of houses that we were looking at initially. We appreciated his openness and honesty about what he thought, with out best interests in mind. He was always on time and ready when we needed him and when it came time to place an offer and close, he was on point. I'd highly recommend Randy to anyone that's looking for a competent real estate agent!

      - Ian
    • Randal Goodson was extremely helpful in marketing and selling our home. He constantly kept us updated during the process of selling our home. I really appreciated him checking in with us after 22 showings in 1 weekend. There was a tiny hiccup when the buyer backed out suddenly. Randall was on the phone with us at 8:30 am already had new offers and had multiple showing scheduled. We highly recommend Randall Goodson!

      - dawn7883
    • Great experience selling our home! We would highly recommend Randal to our family and friends. We were very impressed with his local area knowledge and marketing strategies. Randal kept us informed throughout the entire process and made the extra effort to meet in-person when needed. Thank you again!

      - Matthew
    • I initially contacted Randy because he sold a home in my neighborhood within 3 days. He was very professional and the years he's worked in the industry and in my area was evident. The original offer accepted fell through due to the buyer's financing, but he had a new offer lined up before even having to deliver the news to me. I moved out of state during the process and felt comfortable leaving my home sale in his hands. I'd highly recommend working with Randy Goodson for a home purchase or sale!

      - bplez
    • Randy is a real professional. He is thoughtful, patient, reliable, and has a good sense of humor, too! That's a plus in our book! With his experience, he was invaluable in our search for the perfect house for our needs. He listened to our wishes and did not waste our time with properties that didn't fit. We also appreciated his good sense when we walked around a house, pointing out things that might have escaped our notice, but might have been problematic. We cannot say too strongly that he is a great realtor and we will certainly engage his services again!

    • Expectations for real estate agents vary from individual to individual. For myself, I expect an agent will earn my business by promptly responding to all correspondences (text, email, calls), possess unparalleled knowledge about the local real estate market, fully embrace all aspects of home selling "automation" so that setting up appointments with prospective buyers is worry-free and be a subject matter expert with regard to all aspects of the endless flow of documentation, approvals, signatures. A tall order I know, but my first test for Randal was call at 8AM on the Tuesday following Memorial Day Weekend. Randy picked up the phone immediately and vowed to return my call at noon and he proceeded to continue to execute on all of the items outlined above. Randal is a real estate professional that does what he says and when he says he will do it. It is refreshing to work with someone that will actually dot the "i's" and cross the "t's" without constant prodding. For the serious seller (or buyer), I strongly recommend that you at least give Randal a call to understand the value he can bring to the process. My experience with Randal was nothing short of excellent.

      - Kelly
    • It was a pleasure working with Randal in every phase of the sale of our home. From our initial conversation on how he approaches the sales process, to pricing our home and evaluating our offers, Randal was always professional and very responsive to our questions or concerns. Our house sold in just 2 days with 8 offers which were all over asking! Thanks Randal

      - bill
    • Randy is a wonderful job with the sale of our house. He was very respectful of our family situation, with three young kids, in scheduling appointments and showings, as well as helping to negotiate the transition to our new house. He was very accessible by phone, text, and email, always keeping us informed of the next steps in this complicated process. I have already recommended Randy to friends who are looking to move.

      - smckel3
    • Randal is a complete professional in all respects. He gave us great advice, provided top notch marketing support, and sold our home at the full asking price. I will be happy to recommend him to anyone.

      - cnab96
    • Randal is straight-forward, honest and gave me good advice as when to list my home for the market. He put my home on the market the first of February and there were showings daily until it soId. I would recommend him to friends and associates.

      - hwaite40
    • Very knowledgeable in the Farmington Hills area market. Great experience working with Randy and his team, highly professional during the whole process, selling our home was seamless.

      - eger31
    • After interviewing several agents, Randal was selected because he came with an impressive presentation and credentials for selling the home. He is totally professional and very personable. He prepared an attractive presentation kit about the property, provided guidance when requested and was always quick to respond which resulted in many showings and ultimately an accepted offer.

      - eisenauer
    • Randal Goodson is highly experienced and precise in every detail. He came to the first interview very well prepared. And, most importantly, he followed through and did every thing he said he would! His communication was always prompt and courteous, and it always seemed that he was two steps in front of my next concern. His negotiation skills, which I didn't even know to expect, were so far above anything I have seen previously. I would definitely use Randal again, and have already recommended him to several of our friends who are considering a move. They don't come any better than this man!

      - user20170217070941015
    • Randal Goodson was professional in every way. He is experienced in the real estate business and thus able to manage all aspects of selling a home. Plus, he personally is easy to deal with. We were the sellers and I believe he acted in our best interests.

      - dmckerch6
    • I will have to honestly say that the only reason I gave Randal Goodson a 5 star review is because 6 stars was not given as an option. Randal took care of the sale of my mothers home. Among the thing Randal did well were the following. Presentation - Randal is very prepared Pictures and Write-up- Randal can make a home in Redford look better than most homes in Bloomfield Hills Communication - Randal is very prompt and responsive. Foresight- Randal had a way of foreseeing potential issues and having a plan to deal with things before any issues arose. Honesty - Randal was an honest guy and I always felt that he was looking out for us and making sure our interests were taken care of. I would recommend Randal to anyone. If I ever move back to the Detroit area, I would hire Randal in a heart beat. I can say that it was a very enjoyable experience working with Randal and I know other people who had the same experience.

      - rtpiek
    • Randy actually dealt with my home twice. He was the Seller's agent when I bought it 14 years ago and was my agent when I just sold. His knowledge of the market is thorough. He has an instinct for sales and negotiations like very few other agents. Randy's marketing skills brought immediate and steady results.

      - oung
    • The consummate professional with a phenomenal work ethic. Randal was ALWAYS calm, positive and responsive to every question and had a laser beam focus at each step of the process to keep us up to date on what next steps would look like all through the process. He is on top of every detail - at every step. Best decision we ever made in a realtor.

      - Diane
    • Randy is the type of agent that always answers his phone and available. He is knowledgable on the market and sold my home in less than one month. The closing day was organized and done effectively and quickly.

      - Michelle
    • I had a great experience working with Randall. Randall is very courteous and friendly. His knowledge of the area and superb marketing and selling skills made the selling process go quickly and smoothly. I appreciate how I was kept in the loop of the selling process by regular emails, phone calls, and text messages. I would 100% recommend Randall for the selling and buying of your next home.l

      - uemore
    • Randy worked hard to sell our home and find us our new condo! We're very happy we used him! He responds quickly to calls, texts, and emails! Randy helped do whatever he could to negotiate to sell our home and to purchase our condo.

      - hery
    • Really I would have my two year old wrote this review if, ya know, she could write. Whenever we got in the car to go anywhere she would ask if Mr. Randy would be there. Any time we saw pictures of houses "where is Mr. Randy?" He became the highlight of her day and an adopted grandpa. She loves him. And so do her parents! Randy knows his stuff, and he works hard for you. He stuck with us through months and months, and nine offers. That's right. You read that correctly: NINE OFFERS. Nine times someone would be able to give a better offer than we could (cash, waive the appraisal, WAY over asking price, etc.) When we faced discouragement over and over, he was always there with reassurance and ready to get back to the hunt. He had insights we never would have had about different cities, neighborhoods, house histories and layouts, etc. and steered us in the right direction time and again. We are now in a house we love, a neighborhood we adore, and have Randy as our honorary family member. I will be forever grateful to the one who pointed us in Randy's direction!

      - MichaelB
    • Randal is an outstanding realtor and I recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell! His level headed negotiation skills helped us make a deal quickly and easily. His marketing plan and communication skills were better than any realtor I have ever worked with. Our deal involved a relocation company with many unique requirements that were difficult to work through, at best. Randal skillfully met every requirement and took on responsibilities beyond the scope of a normal deal just to make things easier on us. He is the standard I will use to compare any realtor we deal with in the future!

      - jasonb
    • Met with Randal Goodson in 2015 to discuss 2 properties to sell. He contacted us in plenty of time to get both properties on the market by April 1 in 2016. He was very responsive through the whole process. Never difficult to get a hold of. Our condo sold in 2.5 days and our house sold in 3.5 months (at very different list prices). He was always good natured, very informative, very helpful, and honest with his advice. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

      - wend
    • We recently closed a home with Randy's help. Our search for a home lasted a whole year - and Randy had been exceptionally patient throughout the whole process. He his very knowledgeable, kind and is always willing to help. He is always prompt and punctual. He provided his expert, honest opinions and was always willing to answer any questions. We also leased out our old home with his help. We were able to list and find a renter within 2 weeks of the listing. He provided an account on an App that made it easy to track and report on the showings. We highly recommend Randy to anyone who is looking for a sincere, honest realtor with a lot of integrity.

      - jusslike
    • Randal has been the most professional realtor and has been there for us throughout the entire selling process. He has kept us informed of each and every step and knew exactly how to market our home. He has also been reachable no matter what the day or time. It has been an absolute pleasure working with him!!!

    • Very hands on Great digital marketing presence to generate interest Sold in two days with plenty of activity Knows market and subdivision Made a stressful process so much easier Direct contact and fast response time - no go between person ??????

      - zuser20160802055123332
    • I purchased my home all the way from Phoenix, Arizona and Randy made it as easy as living in Michigan. He viewed homes for me taking videos and photos. He handled all the inspections himself for me. He even paid for one inspection and allowed me to reimburse him. Besides all that, he was always professional, responding in a timely manner, and answered all my questions. Which is a lot considering I am a first time home buyer! He broke down everything into detail for me whenever I needed. He was honest about neighborhoods, roads, and anything else he thought I wouldn't want. He LISTENED to what I wanted and gave his opinions when I pointed out a home online too him. Just because a home looks nice on the outside, doesn't mean the area was what I wanted, he made sure I steered clear of that! I will without a doubt be a repeat customer if I consider moving and would recommend him to anyone! He truly cares about your happiness!

      - Chahoud
    • We recently bought a home in Farmington Hills, I found Randy on Zillow from the amazing reviews and couldn't be happier with our choice. From day one he treated us like family looking out for us. Since we were moving from out of state we didn't know the area well and he helped us find a safe area with great schools for our children. He rearranged his schedule for us whenever we were able to come in town and look at houses and made the whole process as seamless as possible. Randy was always going the extra mile and even assisted us in getting work done on our house, every time I would tell someone about all Randy did for us their response was "wow that is going above and beyond!" If you are looking for a realtor that knows the area well and has your best interests at heart Randy is your guy!

      - zuser20150310221056547
    • Randall was knowledgeable and available at the drop of a hat. He was patient and kind with my husband and I who are seniors who haven't bought a house in thirty years. He took time to explain everything and make sure we understood them and he sold my house in one day!!

      - janet sue
    • Randy Goodson was absolutely wonderful person to work with. His optimistic, make it happen attitude was greatly appreciated. Our property languished for six months with a competing realtor. Once we listed our condo with Randy, we quickly saw plenty of advertising and interest culminating in a sale. We couldn't ask for a better communicator than Randy. Weekly, we were kept up to date with details and feedback on showings as well as being given market snapshots showing sales trends and the status of other nearby properties for sale. If you are looking for a fair, honest and hardworking realtor, pick Randal Goodson. I know you will be pleased.

      - corvus1
    • He was my Seller Agent, Excellent service and professionalism by Randal. He was sincere and helpful from beginning to the end. Just the type of person you need when looking for your selling/Buying. Always was flexible with timings and availability when I requested to meet with him anytime even at the weekend...!! He gave us his very honest view and which helped us taking informative decisions. He was very patient throughout the process, BTW, Me & My Wife are type of people very Picky, Fussy.... and just name it..etc. To Make the story very short hard people to deal with..?? Only Randal did passed. We've being doing a real estate business for quite of long time. I never ever met someone I can say a perfect gentleman way educated about his field/business. You are dealing with someone tremendously Knowledgeable about your Homes Marketing Values in your area. Actually we are keeping this guy forever... I can go on and on all day writing about this guy...He is one of amazing people I had met in my life ..We would definitely recommend to everyone in Michigan to work this guy without any doubt ..

      - simon
    • Randal is the consummate professional. The entire process of selling a home can be complicated and stressful, but he is always available to answer any questions and provide open, honest and realistic feedback. We appreciated his straight-forward approach in order to simplify all phases of the process and provide us with a clear understanding of the next steps and possible alternatives. He exceeded our expectations in every aspect and we will not hesitate to use him for any real estate requirements in the future. Thank you Randy!!!

      - wbdoug
    • Honest, kind, caring, experienced, determined, and grit are few of the many great adjectives that can be used to encapsulate Randal Goodson and his dedication to the craft of Real Estate. From beginning to end, he is reliable, punctual, and goes the extra mile to accommodate his clients' needs and provides valuable insight to both the first-time home buyer and seasoned homeowners alike. His many years of practice has proven to be a steady rock to stand on despite seemingly insurmountable circumstances and unwavering professionalism that played a key role into closing the deal. Mr. Goodson is a finisher; a deal-closer, and someone that cannot be overlooked. Anyone serious about home-buying needs to have the best in the business, and that man is Randal Goodson.

    • If there was one word to describe Randy, it would be PHENOMENAL! He is an amazing realtor. Please, do yourself a favor and choose him to help you through your home-buying process, you won't regret it! In the spring of 2015 we first contacted Randy. We were living out of state at the time and were in the process of moving here to Michigan. On our first trip out here to Michigan to look at the area, my husband was in meetings and my goal was to find a realtor. I met with several realtors that day in hopes of finding one we could work with. Randy stood out! Randy took the time to answer questions about Michigan/the area and had put together an informative PowerPoint for me. I had no prior knowledge about the area and knew no one here so the information Randy shared with me was extremely helpful. Even though we first contacted Randy in the spring 2015, we weren't planning on actually moving to Michigan until fall 2015. After our initial meeting, my husband and I stayed in contact with Randy. He kept us informed about the area and set up an automated email that daily sent us a listing of homes on the market within our criteria. It was a great way to begin understanding the housing market here in the area. We came back to Michigan in the summer to look at homes. It was a fast trip--fly in Monday, fly out Wednesday--we didn't have a lot of time to look. Randy cleared his schedule the days we were in town, scheduled showingsahead of time, and took us to see the homes. Randy was organized, kind, and prepared for our visit. We found a home we liked on the second day, put in an offer, and then we left the next day. We were excited that we were able to find a home so quickly and we were grateful for all the preparation that Randy did ahead of our visit. It is difficult to buy a house from out of state but Randy took a lot of the stress. He helped schedule the home inspection for us and he even attended the inspection as we were out of state. After we received the home inspection report, we ended up pulling out of the contract due to issues that came up. I appreciated that Randy was supportive of our decision to pull out of the contract; he didn't put pressure on us to buy the home once we saw the report. We moved to the area in the Fall 2015 and ended up renting at first because we still hadn't found our home, however, within a month of moving here, we found our home. I saw the listing for a home late Sunday night and emailed Randy about it. First thing Monday, he got back to me and said we needed to move fast on the home because he thought it would sell quickly based on price and location. Within a couple of hours we were at the home. Randy had the purchase contract paperwork prepared ahead of time and brought it with him to the house. He was prepared to act fast if we liked the house and we did! We put in the offer and got the home. Randy understandsthe market. He understands what types of homes sell fast and he's prepared to act quickly. We appreciated that because we now have a great home! Randy helped us every step of the way. He helped the process of home-buying enjoyable and fun. One more thing to note that my husband and I really appreciated was that fact that when we moved here in the fall, we brought our children along since we didn't know anyone here in the area who could watch them. Our children are young-- baby and toddler aged. Randy was kind when things took a little longer when something came up with the kids. He told us he's a grandpa so he understands! We've now been our home for a few months and we are happy here, and in large part that's thanks to Randy for working so hard on our behalf. If you are looking for a realtor to help you, choose Randy. You'll thank yourself after it's all said and done! He's PHENOMENAL!

    • We have known of Randal's work in local real estate for over 20 years. When it came time to sell our own home, he was our first choice. We did interview others, but in our opinion only one even came close to his level of experience, success, and comfort level provided. Within 2 weeks of listing our home, we received an excellent offer. It was accepted and the sale closed about 4 weeks later. We were out of state for part of that time. Along the way, Randal advised us and quickly did everything he could to smooth the process, including a few things that might be considered beyond the norm for a realtor. We are completely satisfied and happy with the services that Randal provided

      - cjbazfast
    • Randal is A Home retailer that I would call again. His handling of my home sale was A TEN! My home sold in 4 Days with my asking price! If you want to sell your home, Call Randal! Or Buy?

      - DMB48336
    • Randy was professional, knowledgeable and responsive. We had a fall listing, which is usually a slow time for selling houses. Having sold our home in such a short period of time is directly attributable to Randy's ability to get the job done. We would highly recommend Randy to anyone in the market to sell or purchase a home!

      - nchaness
    • Randy was EXCELLENT to work with. Sold our home after it had been listed with another agent for almost 6 months! He did it in about a month. Great to work with and we would recommend him to anyone!
