Client Testimonials

"I highly recommend Randy if you are planning to buy or sell. We started working with him about 2 years ago and started our serious house hunting within the last year. He was so patient with all of our questions as we were new to the house buying business. We rode a bit of an emotional rollercoaster when our first escrow fell apart, but he was there with us through it all and helped us find an even better house! I love that he's quick to respond and makes himself available within a very decent timeframe. Plus, he’s continued to help us with our house even though we closed 3 weeks ago. That’s dedication! Seriously, you won't regret working with Randy!"

"I was impressed with Randy from first time we met with him at our home.. We were unsure of listing our home but he made us feel really comfortable with the whole process. We debated on several agents but Randy seemed to have the best marketing plan and the best track record.. He was always available to answer any questions no matter how small. I felt comfortable contacting him any time seven days a week. Randy guided us through the entire process and was friendly but professional at all times. We got a really quick sale and we were very happy with the outcome and the final result."

"Randy was wonderful throughout the entire process. Living in Chicago and selling a property in La Quinta, you need someone you can trust. Any issue that came up Randy addressed quickly and effectively. Our trash compactor broke, he helped me install a wine fridge in it's place. We had a bee issue, he called us an exterminator. After the closing, there were some unfortunate residual issues that needed to be resolved and Randy remained committed to helping me. I only wish I lived in CA so I could do more business with him! Can't recommend Randy enough. Top notch broker!"

"Thanks to Randy, my husband and I are the proud owners of our first home!
From our very first telephone conversation, it was obvious that Randy not only was an expert on all things La Quinta but that he truly cared about us, understood that homebuying was a completely new experience for us and   intended to hold our hands every step of the way if that's what was required. He was calm and unfailing patient (which I'm sure must not have been easy sometimes) and never once made us feel embarassed at our lack of knowledge. He took us step by step through the entire process & gave us great advice. I can't recommend Randy & DesertSmith highly enough.  If anyone wants a realtor for the La Quinta-Palm Desert area they are the ones to call"

"Randy was willing to go the extra mile to complete a total renovation and sale. Was able to connect me with a competent contractor to accomplish repairs, and was proactive and thorough during the sales process. Great sense of humor...kept things light, but was highly professional. He worked well with the Title folks as well. I highly recommend Randy Smith!!"

“He got the job done...twice! I had to sell both my homes fast. Who could have imagined two houses closing the same week...I couldn’t be happier!!”
Robin J. – Palm Desert

“I’ve purchased many properties in Canada, but none were as simple and stress-free as  Randy Smith made purchasing our Desert vacation home from initial search to final closing!”
Shelley W. – N. Vancouver, BC Canada

“Working with you twice has been a joy. I just want you to know that I put you in my WILL so that no one but Randy Smith can sell my home when I’m gone!”
Joan J. – La Quinta

"Randy and I had searched for the perfect place near my beloved La Quinta Resort for many years before finding the right one.
During those years Randy never flagged in his enthusiasm or turned down a request from me to check something out for me while I was in New York.
We found a great place and with Randy's help got a great deal on it!
He looked out for my interests during the escrow process so that I could stay home and take care of MY business .
Even after the sale, Randy continues to be my agent and help with issues
from time to time. Randy is my realtor for life!"
John Feingold

"We were really over the moon with our choice to work with Randy Smith for the sale of our vacation home and extra lot. It is an iconic home in the La Quinta area, but a bit of an unusual property. Randy went above and beyond from start to finish. He is the hardest working realtor in the desert and will bend over backwards to help you! He's completely trustworthy, and we truly felt he made us a priority at every step. We appreciated his flyers and outreach, then meeting with us and giving us space to decide when the time was right. Once we got started, he adapted to our vacation rental schedule to do showings, not something all realtors would have been so upbeat and can-do about due to the challenge with scheduling. He helped us with a realistic pricing strategy, knowing the market so well in that area. He was great with prospects, and confidently helped us to negotiate and achieve a result we were very happy with and help keep me calm throughout. He helped us navigate the home inspection and arrange cost-effective repairs as we do not live locally. He went on video phone numerous times with me so I could direct storage of items, a huge help, and even helped me with getting various items where they needed to go (not in his job description, but again, a very generous and hard-working person!). A technical transactional snag and then a USPS delay came up at the last minute that could have derailed the deal. This is where having an experienced, hard-working, committed, experienced, and organized realtor makes all the difference! Randy spent a ton of time chasing down the package and then driving it where it needed to go to the land registry. If you think all realtors are pretty much the same, think again! You do not know what will come up on your deal. Not to mention, his commission was less than one of the other quotes we got. If we buy in the area again, we will be sure to use Randy Smith, and will shout from the rooftops to anyone who is thinking of selling to be sure to call him up."

"Working with Randy to sell our Palm Desert condo was an absolute pleasure. He is an expert in the local market, and helped us price and market our condo in the most effective way possible. He brought us an offer well over asking price, then worked diligently to manage every step of the sales process. What I especially appreciated about Randy was his positive, professional attitude and how he proactively stayed on top of every detail. We always knew what was happening, thanks to his clear, timely communication. Thank you, Randy!”
