"We have bought two houses with Rand and sold one. Each time he has been fantastic to work with. We are very busy, but Rand was always available to look at houses and quick to respond when we had questions. When we sold our house Rand priced it well. He really knows the Costa Mesa market. He guided us through the process of selling with great skill. We are very happy with our latest house purchase. I highly recommend working with Rand."

"Just like the rest of his reviews say, Rand Penrod is nothing short of amazing. Rand helped us in two ways – finding our dream home and finding the perfect tenant for our investment property. When we first met Rand, he was not only very informative and personable, but relieved us of all the stresses of buying/selling a home (or finding a tenant). He answered all of our questions in addition to offering invaluable advice for buying and renting alike. His attention to detail, work ethic and honesty are the reason we will choose him over others for our future endeavors. If you’re looking for someone who will get the job done and get it done correctly, Rand is your guy!"

"Rand Penrod was the perfect agent for us. First off I want to say that we used Rand to sell our Condo and to buy a new home concurrently. We got to experience Rand as our agent to sell our property and to buy another property. Both sides were a fantastic experience. The strategy that Rand and I agreed on to sell our condo worked exactly as we predicted. We had multiple offers in less than a week.
One of the most important things to have in an agent is good timely communication. Rand was always in contact with us in some form or fashion to either answer our questions or to keep us updated on details. We were never left waiting for a response from Rand.
His experience and expertise in both the Real Estate and Mortgage loans world was top notch. From questions about real estate properties to questions about the funding process Rand always had a quick and correct answer. When it came time to get our loan, I was able to double check and verify things with Rand so I didn’t feel like I had to just trust what my lender was telling me.
Rand’s personality is very calm and laid back. This helped tremendously during the final stretch where things got a bit hung up due to the less than stellar agent that my buyer on the Condo was using. The process of selling and/or buying a home is never going to go perfectly smooth. All you can ask for in the times where there are hick ups is that communication is strong, accurate and continuous.
Sometimes we take for granted what a good agent we have until another one is in the mix. From simple things like being able to digitally sign most documents to getting a direct answer on a direct question, Rand never let us down once. That cannot be said for the agent that my buyer on the Condo used. I can only imagine how stressful that process was for my buyer on the condo. There really are too many Real Estate agents out there that do the bare minimum to make a quick buck. Rand is the hard to find elite group of agents that take the job and you as a client seriously. When I say it is hard to find a great agent that is because anyone can make a website claiming years of experience with some corny BS slogan. Thankfully services like Yelp can assist in directing people like you to a real agent that will actually work for you and earn their commission.
If you have made it this far in reading my review on Rand, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you do not reach out to Rand and speak with him on what your goals are. I could say good luck with your real estate venture but it would be more beneficial for you to just get Rand as your agent. Luck runs out, Rand won’t. Just picture the energizer bunny with a surfboard under his arm."
