Simply put, Randy Courtney is the best. He recently sold our house and he vastly exceeded our expectations. With support from a wonderful, professional team he has assembled, he left nothing to chance. All our questions and issues were handled promptly and completely. We wouldn't think of using anyone but Randy for buying or selling a house in the Valley. Randy has absolutely the best staff who made the recent sale of our home much easier than we ever expected. We highly recommend Randy Courtney!
