Selling and buying a new home can be a taxing process for anyone, but when it’s your second home and your primary residence is in another country the process can be uncomfortably stressful, given the differences between Canada and the USA and the majority of discussion, correspondence, and negotiations are done remotely. A top notch realtor can significantly reduce the demands of such a transaction on the buyer or seller and Randy Roach is one of those professionals that not only understands the buying and selling process in detail, he also goes up and beyond the job description in support of his clients. We used him to list our home and also to assist in the research and purchase of our new home in Mesa and I would strongly recommend anyone in the Phoenix area to engage Randy, regardless if you are the buyer or seller.
Robert Armstrong - Canada
Randy helped us buy some rental properties and a vacation property in the last few years. We have since had Randy help us sell one rental property and looking at selling another in the near future. He had our property listed, shows done and sold within a few days. He has been great to work with from the start of buying properties to now selling them. Thank You Randy! Murray and Karla
Murray & Karal Haygarth - Saskatchewan Canada
Randy was incredible to do business with, making it easy to both sell our existing home and buying a new one. We live in Canada and he was able to make all transactions accessible and easy. All questions and concerns were followed up immediately. I would highly recommend Randy Roach.
Deb Armstrong - Calgary Alberta
Mr. Randy Roach was my realtor for an out of state purchase of a home in Mesa, AZ. From the moment of my expressing interest in the property, Randy was highly effective and exact in contacting me and providing details of the property for me to make an easy decision to purchase. Our interactions were 100% on line and/or by phone. Randy responded to me for every inquiry I had in a very timely manner I.e., no hesitation or waiting. This enabled me to make quick decisions. The entire transaction of submitting an offer and price negotiation was done over the phone and in a very professional masterful manner. For the legal documents, all I had to do was an electric signing via a very secure network he provided. His knowledge of real estate transactions and the mortgage banking process was most impressive and right on. He never failed to deliver! Randy is a precise, and skillful negotiator dedicated to customer satisfaction. He certainly delivers the best in service and transaction knowledge through an impressive work ethic. It was a true pleasure working with Randy who made me feel comfortable and confident despite the 1000 mile distance. I highly recommend Randy Roach for your real estate needs in the Phoenix, Arizona area. He is a honest hard working agent...a true five star professional.
Randy was very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. He made selling our home a very pleasant experience and everything went smoothly. He kept us informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend Randy as a Realtor.
Frank and Cathy Zack - Ontario Canada
This is the second time we have bought or sold a property with Randy. The first purchase we were looking to move out of the city but stay close enough to commute to work. Randy found more than what we were looking for. The selection of properties he showed us were all very worthy of our time and we settled on one that we absolutly loved. Our first transaction with Randy went so well that when it came time to sell our rental house, the choice was easy. The rental house was a distance from our current residence. Randy went out of his way to check in on the property when we couldn't. He also offered great advise on which modification and upgrades needed to be completed to maximize profits.....which payed off!
Jim and Aleida Lester
I first started dealing with Randy 9 years ago when I started to invest in the Phoenix market. I was actually drawn to Randy by his excellent website online. I have since started investing in the Costa Rican market with the help of Randy and his network of professionals. Randy has gone above and beyond to provide me with amazing real estate opportunities and I will continue to refer Randy and consider him a huge factor in my successes and also consider him my friend. Thank You Randy I Appeciate You
David Peters - Manitoba Canada - Costa Rica Investor
Our dealings with Randy as our agent of choice for listing our home for sale are all very positive. His professional demeanor and knowledge of the industry and today's market were second to none. From day one he provided us with stealth service and had our home sold in 12 HOURS. Simply amazing. All the leadership and direction towards closing again were the best. As a foreign buyer/seller, I suggest you call Randy before anyone else. You won't be disappointed.
Bill & Maureen Ullman - Alberta, Canada.
We have worked with Randy on three transactions, with the first in 2010, and we have no complaints whatsoever. The last one was all done long distance, with us being in Canada, and any questions we had Randy responded to immediately. When we bought a rental property he helped, advised, and recommended an excellent property management company, as well as landscapers, and a handyman/maintenance company. We hired these companies and we have no regrets. If we do another deal in AZ the first call will be to Randy Roach. Wes and Nola Rypien
Wes and Nola Rypien - Canada
Randy was great! I would consider myself a little high maintenance and Randy had no problem meeting my needs even when I requested an offer be put in on a house way before business hours.....lol a big thank you on that one.....needed to be quick to move on offers in the area and price point I was looking at. Was very helpful on selling our home to. Helped me stage the home and gave great advice to make it more appealing to the masses. I was very pleased with my experience working with Randy.
Stephanie Reilly & Bradley Walstrom
Unless you are selling your house on your own, you are going to have to hire/pay someone to do it. Randy Roach not only knows the market but also as a Canadian I needed info on tax laws which Randy provided and if I needed more tax info than he knew he would be able to put me in contact with those that knew more. Randy pointed out what had to be done to my house to improve market value along with a reliable contractor. When I realized that the property was without utilities because they were under the tenants name (good luck trying to sell a house in AZ without air-conditioning in summer) Randy went that extra mile and provided what I needed to do hook ups saving me a trip to AZ. As for that other task real estate agents take care of, selling the house, Randy had my house, listed, viewed and sold in less than 2 months for the price I wanted. Nicely done Randy.
Rory Delaney - Canada
This review might be a little long, but if you are thinking about Buying or Selling a home, please read all the way through. It was late Summer of 2015 and my husband and I were out one Saturday afternoon and just happened to see an Open House sign, so we thought we'd stop just to see the house and find out the asking price. We were not ready to purchase until late Spring of 2016, but wanted to start paying closer attention to the market and how it had changed in Phoenix since we sold our prior home in 2014. That is the day we met Randy Roach, the Sellers Agent. We were very up front with him on why we were there and that we still had about 8 months left on our lease. That didn't matter to Randy, he was not pushy, but he gave us his full attention as to our future needs and was so learned in regards to Real Estate and the Market. We had our questions answered, took his card and were back on our way. Once we left, we did not discuss the Open House much, but more the Agent. Randy seemed so down to earth and honest, that we held on to his card and said "We Need to Contact Him" when it's time to actively start looking. After the 1st of the year, we contacted Randy and discussed a couple of different areas around the Valley we were interested in. He set us up with an account on the mls website and included all of the perimeters and price points we requested. Randy also got us in touch with an extremely knowledgable Mortgage Broker by the name of Mike LaPenta at Peoples Mortgage to see if we felt comfortable with him and Mike was excellent! So we got our pre-qualifications completed and the active search began. During the actual House Hunting process, we (I) had changed my mind many times on locations, etc..., but Randy never lost patience. The more I would research, the more questions I had about homes and the Home Buying Process. I tried to educate myself upfront as not to run into many of the road blocks some people do when the closing date and the movers have already been scheduled. On all of the money and mortgage questions, I would call Mike, But Randy could answer all of my questions with such confidence I never 2nd guessed his experience. Randy met us one Saturday and arranged the showings of the homes we wanted to see. After we found "The One," Randy was on the phone with the sellers agent immediately to get more info about the Sellers situation, which helped him determine where we should be on our offer. With-in a few hours, we were signing an offer and it was excepted by the sellers the next morning! From that moment on, Randy (and Mike LaPenta) were there every moment, every step of the way to help guide us through the processes and what to expect when. The closing went perfectly and it allowed us enough time to move in, but still have time to get everything from our previous house before our lease was up! We have been in our new home for a little over 2 weeks now, and I'm still receiving texts and emails from Randy to see how everything is going! What a Difference our experience was in the purchase of our new home, due to the knowledge and customer service given to us by Randy Roach and Mike LaPenta from People's Mortgage! They were never too busy not to accept my phone calls, texts or emails. What a Class Act and an Awesome Team!!
David and Robin Bardin
Randy was very professional and extremely helpful during the sale of our home. We were living in Canada during the sale and he took care of a lot of details that we were unable to deal with being so far away. We would not hesitate to recommend Randy
Stewart and Sheryl Malgunas - Canada
Randy is great at his profession. He is knowledgeable, sincere, honest, funny, down to earth and personable. We have purchased a home and sold a home with Randy's assistance. He is energetic, enthusiastic and hard working! Exceptional!!!
Doreen and Glenn Mccaw - Canada
Randy was very professional and answered our questions immediately, it he didn't know the answer he got back to us in a timely manner with the answer. He listened to what we wanted and he followed through with every request. We would recommend Randy to anyone looking for a real professional in Real Estate. We found the perfect house the first time we looked with Randy.
Linda and Herb Grau
I am an elderly man and didn't want to live alone anymore. Randy helped me sell my house quickly. With the Canadian dollar low, there were many homes for sale. Randy's advice and guidance helped me sell fast!
Randy was a pleasure to work with. We are Canadians who were looking for a vacation home in the Mesa area. Randy showed us numerous houses until we found the one best suited for our needs. His pleasant demeanor coupled with a comprehensive knowledge and experience in the local area, were beneficial to our successful outcome. He not only answered our numerous questions but quelled any concerns we had with the buying process. He was with us every inch of the way, from start to finish. He made buying our vacation home so easy. I highly recommend Randy Roach to anyone buying a home in the Greater Phoenix area.
Paul and Carol Anderson - Canada
Randy sold our house for us. He was very professional and was with us every step of the way. Kept us updated and informed through the process. Helped co-ordinate whatever was needed to be done to get the house sold. We would highly recommend him for all your real estate needs.
Christine and Dennis Wijcik - Canada
Randy gets you focused really quickly on what your top priorities are and what they should be in finding a property. This eliminates a lot of time spent looking at ones that aren't suitable. He is very professional but also makes it a fun experience. He has lots of contacts with other services which is very helpful for us being out of country buyers. We would highly recommend Randy and feel we have also gained a friend from our business relationship.
Don and Kathy Parker - Canada
My wife and I expected our first home purchase to be nothing other than a grueling process. Luckily, Randy was referred to us by a trusted friend making it the opposite of what we feared. Having an agent that keeps it simple but has the experience and knowledge necessary to answer any question you may have is paramount. The only thing greater would be one who shows dedication to their clients. Randy easily achieves each of these, which is exactly why becoming first time homebuyers was nothing like we feared! Whether you're a seasoned seller, buyer or newbie, Randy should always be your first contact.
Alec and Chelsea Allard
Randy spent a lot of time with us, making sure we were absolutely comfortable and well educated in what can be an otherwise complex and challenging experience. He was our project manager, who ensured everyone was on point and meeting deadlines. Randy helped make our dream come true!! We will gladly, and confidently, refer his services to anyone buying or selling a home.
Shawn and Mindi Brown
Great Guy, always got back to us promptly. Very knowledgeable about the area, and was very helpful finding furniture and giving some needed advice. Recommend him to anyone needing a realtor.
Paul and Laurie Pyne - Canada
We asked Randy to sell our home last month. He was the right choice for us for many reasons. First, Randy's experience was key to keeping all the various moving parts of the deal on track. He has been a part of so many real estate transactions that he can help you understand each piece. More importantly, his professionalism is above reproach. To you this means, he is responsive to your needs, knowledgeable of the real estate industry, and accurate in his council to you as the owner on the various stages of the transaction. I would recommend that you call him, and give him a moment to discuss your next real estate transaction.
Craig and Deise Carson
Randy helped me find my home in Scottsdale. As a long time valley resident, and having lived through a few real estate transactions myself, I can honestly say I have finally come across a true real estate professional in a market where professionalism is far from the norm. Randy Roach is a true real estate guru who leverages 15 years of expertise and successful transaction track record, an impeccable due diligence process and a true passion for connecting buyers and sellers to deliver satisfactory results for all parties. He acts promptly to get buyers set up with everything they need to find what I was looking for, and provided me with accurate information to guide me in the selection process. He guides sellers with correct information to set the right expectations on the value of their property. His approach to keeping every party on track with communication and tasks is swift, yet smooth and efficient. I would recommend Randy to anyone who is ready for a next level real estate experience.
When we first began looking for a home in the Phoenix area, we connected with Randy Roach online. From the very beginning he was responsive to any kind of communication that we sent to him. He sent us listings that met our criteria on a regular basis. That preliminary attention, that he provided, helped us to narrow down the homes that we desired to view when we actually arrived in Phoenix.
Randy rearranged his schedule several times to accommodate our schedule and needs. We were able to find a property that we loved to purchase and it only took one day. Randy did everything he could to make the purchasing phase as smooth as finding the property. He stayed with every phase until it was completed to our satisfaction. He had to intervene on several occasions to correct errors that other “professionals” made. We would definitely use him again and would recommend him to our friends. It has been a wonderful experience from beginning to end.
Randy was not only our real estate agent but has become a friend as well.
Vern and Evie King
After dealing with a different agent from an internet company we were very discouraged with the agents knowledge and professionalism. You know things are bad when you are coming in from out of state and you know more about the area and real estate market than the agent. Luckily after speaking with some other acquaintances we were referred to Randy. He was very professional in all aspects of the search, negotiation, and closing. We were out of state buyers and he made the whole process easy. He was very responsive to all of our inquiries and requests. The ability to handle most of the paperwork electronically was a real time saver. We highly recommend Randy and intend to use him for our next real estate transaction. As we have discovered, there are good and bad agents, Randy is good, real good.
Betsy and Gary Steelman
Moving into the Gilbert Arizona area, we found Randy online. I emailed him and didn't expect much and instead received a return phone call within 20 minutes. Randy was courteous, engaged and supportive as we began the process of looking for a house for my family of 4. As we all know, moving is very stressful and at times decisions can be difficult but Randy was a steadfast agent asking great questions, keeping me focused and supporting my final decision. Then after we selected the house, Randy was an amazing negotiator. He connected with my lender, title company as well as my home warranty. Randy was one stop shopping for all inspections, leveraging his local knowledge and expertise to get my dream home at the right price and in the right condition. From the first conversation to the day we cleared title, Randy exceeded my expectations. I've worked with many agents over the years but Randy's skills and expertise have exceeded them all. I would highly recommend Randy and his organization.
Jayson and Angela Edwards
My experience with Randy has been fantastic. He's very approachable, is organized and detail oriented, but also sees the big picture. Randy has excellent communication skills and really knows the local real estate market well.
He works very hard for his clients and puts no pressure at all on you. He's a very straight shooter and gives you all the information you need to make a decision at your own pace. I highly recommended Randy as a real estate agent.
Amir Izadi - Canada
Randy is consider to me to be the "get it done" guy. When he says he does something, it gets done. He is a wealth of knowledge and has experience is areas that we never realized during our home sale and future purchase. He took care of everything, gave great resources and acted quite professional. Randy is a mover and shaker and if the conditions are right, can get the deal done in 30 days or less no question about it. He is also an excellent communicator and contacted us regularly throughout the entire process. He also has excellent leveling skills in the sense that if you do not understand something in the process, he will explain it differently until you do. My wife and I feel very satisfied about the sale of our past home and our new residence because of Randy. I would highly recommend him and my family has had the chance to know him and they will be using him in the future as well.
Ron and Jennifer Nunziata
I have used Randy 3 times over the years to purchase properties. His knowledge of the market and being able to match what I wanted with what was available was excellent. I have purchased revenue properties through Randy while I am living in Canada and he arranged all of the paperwork, legal, escrow, inspections and document filing. The last ones I purchased with his recommendation and did not actually physically fly down to see then until a month after the deal closed. He is an agent that a really trust and recommend to all for my friends who are looking for Arizona property.
Jack Mullock - Canada
Randy Roach was highly recommended to us by a friend of ours. Randy is a very experienced Real Estate Agent and showed an extremely high degree of expertise in the real estate field. He answered all our questions without hesitation. He is extremely knowledgeable of the Phoenix and surrounding areas and is well-informed of the neighborhoods. He spent many hours with us to find a house, while at the same time, he listed our current home. Randy handled the many challenges that we were faced in the process of buying and selling in a very prompt and professional manner. We were successful in finding our new home and selling our current home. He is a very enthusiastic person and we highly recommend Randy for any real estate needs.
Gloria and Steve Long
I live in Canada and Randy made the purchase of my investment property go smoothly. With Randy's superb knowledge and professionalism, in five days I had purchased a property, met with a accountant, a bank manager and a property manager. I also witnessed Randy's honesty and great work ethics. By far the best realtor I have ever dealt with!!!
Yvonne Colville - Canada
As Canadian, we didn't know too much on how to buy a rental property in Arizona. Randy explained to us all the paper work involve ( law, title, etc ). He was very good at that. Finally we bought 3 homes in the last 3 years in San Tan Valley and Gilbert and each time, we had Randy as our broker. He brought us to some community that had great rental potential and everytime, it turn out awesome ! He was very helpful in the closing process.
We are very please with Randy's work and I would highly recommend him !
Thanks for all your great work !

My wife and I were in the market to buy a home in a senior community in a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona, for when we retired from our work in southern California. Randy orchestrated our search in the Sun Cities locale during July - September of 2009. After seeing many homes in our price range and several trips back and forth to AZ, we were able to find a home that fit all of our needs in a great neighborhood and on budget. Randy acted as our advisor and assisted and guided us through the entire purchasing process, which was a short sale, and secured the necessary site inspection that added to our confidence. We tendered on offer in late September and the purchase closed December 1, 2009.
In addition, while we were in the negotiating process, Randy kept an eye on the property and noticed that plants and shrubs on the property were drying out, so he had a contractor analyze the problem and subsequently repair a broken wire to the irrigation valves, saving much of the decorative flowering greenery.
We would gladly recommend Randy's real estate services to anyone that might be interested or have the need.
Randy assisted us in purchasing our vacation home in Arizona. Being from Canada we were not familiar with the area and we were concerned with how difficult the home buying process might be. Randy was very pleasant to deal with and the process went very smoothly.
His strong negotiating skills helped us to get the home we wanted. He is very trustworthy and we would definitely use his services again.
Lyle and Eileen Kendel - Canada
Randy is pleasant, experienced, hard-working and knowledgeable about Phoenix real estate. Being from out of the country, Randy never showed us anything we couldn't afford, he kept in mind our requirements and as a result we found our ideal home. Randy is very knowledgable in many areas he suggested a home inspector and a contractor. He also took care of helping us with all the paper work to complete our home purchase making it a very smooth process for us.
Gene and Susan Wusaty - Canada
Our daughter came to us to see if we would team up with her to buy a home in Phoenix in the lovely Area of Estrella, in Goodyear, Arizona. We started looking on line at all the properties that were available. Through this process we met Randy and told him exactly what we were looking for. Each week he would send properties for us to view on virtual reality, which is a virtual tour of the home. It was absolutely wonderful to see all the features. It was not too long before Randy came up with the perfect home for our family, We are Canadians so it was our escape from the winter weather. It has been a wonderful experience, and are making memories in our beautiful home.
Richard and Joan Healey - Canada
My husband and I decided to relocate to Arizona from Kentucky. I emailed Randy and received same day response. Randy listened to our wants and needs and gave us the opportunity to view properties and make decisions online before we arrived in Arizona to purchase a house. Randy was very attentive and had made arrangements for property showings before we arrived. Had a very successful house hunting/purchasing event in two week period with Randy. Randy was very professional and helpful.
Peggy and Kevin Hoskinson
I found Randy by his web site, in the past two years, we bought five houses from him as investment in Gilbert, AZ. Excellent knowledge and services, he is capable to do everything on line, go extra miles for his client, these are a big bonus for Canadian, because we are quite far away from AZ.
Donald XU - Canada
In 2011 we became interested in purchasing a home in Arizona and Randy was recommended to us by a friend who had previously purchased a home in Surprise, AZ. Our friend had purchased his home through another real estate agent but recommended Randy to us because he was very impressed with him when he called Randy asking for info about a couple of listings on his website. Our friend stated that Randy was extremely helpful and honest.
Our experience with Randy was wonderful. He is very knowledgable, honest, hardworking, and down to earth. We felt as though we had known Randy all our lives. He is personable, energetic, and focused on meeting all of your real estate needs.
We would highly recommend Randy, and do continue to recommend him to all of our Canadian friends who may be interested in purchasing an Arizona home.
Doreen and Glenn Mccaw - Canada
Our first contact with Randy was an online search I was doing for a house in the greater Phoenix area. Randy returned my calls and emails in a professional and prompt manner. We came to town on a visit to search for our new home. It took many hours of searching and we looked at so many houses we lost count. Randy alwasy kept our goals and price range in check. He didn't pressure us to buy, he was more concerned that we found what we wanted. He made the entire experience easy and painless. We found the house we wanted and after negotiations we closed the deal in just over 3 weeks. No bank was involved so this simplified the process. I consider Randy my Real Estate Guy. We stay in contact even after the process was complete.
Will and Sheila Dorris
I began thinking about investing in property in the Phoenix area a few years ago. Since I am Canadian and knew nothing about the process involved in purchasing a home in Phoenix, I was naturally apprehensive. I came into contact with Randy Roach after checking out properties on the internet. From the beginning I found Randy very helpful, and decided to fly to Phoenix to meet him. Once there I was impressed with how easily the whole process went. Randy was very knowledgeable about the Phoenix area and was able to show me several houses that fit my wishes and budget. When I made my choice, Randy walked me through the entire process from making an offer, to the final purchase. He set me up with a home inspector, an accountant who understood foreign property taxes and a property management team. I would highly recommend Randy to anyone who are interested in purchasing real estate in the Phoenix area.
Ross Phillips - Canada
We contacted Randy Roach in 2011 with the hope of purchasing an investment property in the Phoenix area. We live in Canada and really had no knowledge of the rules that we would need to follow to accomplish our goal. When we arrived and met with Randy, he had arranged several home viewings for us in the first 2 days we would be in the area. He seemed very familiar with the area that we were looking in, and helped us write offers on 3 separate houses, with us ending up buying our favorite one. Once we took possession, he helped us find a property manager to handle our rental arrangements. He also helped us find a local accountant to handle the financial details for us as well. Without Randy's expertise, I don't know if we would have been able to do this so smoothly, his help was invaluable to us , and I would highly recommend him to any future clients interested in real estate investing in the Phoenix area..... sincerely Scott and Charline Brunsdon
Scott and Charline Brunsdon - Canada
As Canadian buyers in Arizona we were very pleased with the service we received. Randy was recommended to us by a friend. The process was surprisingly easy, fast and not time consuming. After a few short hours of looking at houses we returned to Canada to make our decision. We were able to make the purchase simply via email. Documents were thorough and easy to understand. Our experience was pleasant and we felt well taken care of by Randy. We would definately recommend Randy to fellow Canadians and Americans alike.
Sherry and Rick Spray - Canada
Randy listened to what we were looking for and provided us with excellent properties to chose from. He had great insight into the areas and properties of interest to us which made our search much easier. We were very impressed with how hard he worked for us. Being Canadian we were unfamiliar with the American real estate process and Randy was able to guide us through from start to finish in a seamless and stress free fashion. Something we really appreciated. Randy helped us find exactly what we were looking for and we are extremely happy with his service. If you require someone to assist you with any real estate needs, we would highly recommend Randy.
The Thorne Family
Dan and Val Thorne - Canada
As Canadians looking for real estate in the Phoenix area, we were looking for a Real Estate agent who could help us focus our search in a couple of areas and within our price range. Over the summer and early fall of 2013, using the portal flexmls system, Randy was able to send us listings that met our criteria. Randy did stay in contact with us frequently either via email and telephone during this period to answer questions and ensure that we were getting info that we needed. This enabled us to have a good understanding of the market place before we arrived in Arizona in early November.
Within a few weeks after our arrival, Randy met with us to narrow our search and arrange viewing of several homes that were of interest. After one day of searching, we found a home and we placed an offer. Randy provided us with guidance and advice in structuring our offer to purchase and through the entire close process. This included getting a home inspection, title transfer and participating in the final walk through inspection.
In summary, Randy made our entire purchasing process as stress free as possible. We would highly recommend him for his knowledge, frankness and professionalism.

Marta Krystia & Wayne Bester - Canada
I was first drawn to Randy because of his website which is very well formatted and easy to make specific searches which I was looking for. When it was time to make a move I contacted him because he already had a list of my favorites and that was obviously the next step. The part that sets him aside is in my opinion though is that he has worked diligently for me on my property choices even though there was little in it for him. He has also alerted me to potentially bad deals that would not be a good choice for me. Randy has also referred me to good people in different professions to suit my needs. Thank you Randy for your excellent service.
Dave Peters - Canada
Randy provides excellent information for Canadian buyers. He was well informed with the areas I wanted to buy. I provided Randy with the homes I was interested in. I found a home and Randy closed the deal in one day. Randy provided contacts for financing, home inspection and management. This service made my purchase very easy. Thanks Randy!
Harry Sommerfield - Canada
Randy Roach was very professional in all aspects of the purchase and sale of our properties. Randy listed our home and we had offers in the first few days for very close to the listing price. On the purchase of our condo Randy was very helpful to us as we are Canadians and the process here is quite different from home. He was able to put us in contact with the right people to help us in all areas of the purchase and sale. We would recommend Randy for anyone wanting to purchase or sell a property.
Pat and Tim Zimmerman - Canada
Randy was very helpful in our process of buying rental properties. He sent emails daily of houses for sale before we could meet with him so we could narrow down our search before meeting. He showed us many houses in the area and price range we were looking for. He had several contacts which made locating houses and viewing appointments quick to schedule.
Murray Haygarth - Canada
I would highly recommend Randy for real estate services within the Phoenix area. We started communicating with Randy several months prior to our arrival in Phoenix. We basically "goggled" the web and secured Randy's services after deciding that he was our man. We knew the type of house we wanted and communicated that message to Randy. With the information that Randy received, he was able to send us daily emails that communicated a webpage, that illustrated what was available in the market. Once we arrived in Phoenix, Randy was more than happy to accommodate our needs to view the network of houses. Randy's excellent knowledge of the existing Phoenix market allowed him to make prudent feedback to our numerous questions. I would highly recommend Randy to anyone looking for a house in Phoenix.
Dwight and Dolores Littlechilds - Canada
Randy was most helpful in helping us determine whether or not a house was a good prospect. He would send us multiple listings and then it was up to us to decide which ones we wished to see. Although we landed up buying a new home from a builder, Randy handled the negotiations and we landed up getting more than we expected to get.
Christie and Leon Desilets - Canada
Randy was very helpful in finding us our vacation home. He looked at, reviewed and recommended the right place. I am still in contact with Randy as he keeps me informed of the market in Arizona. I would recommend him.
Doug and Karin Larson - Canada
We contacted Randy Roach when we decided to purchase in Arizona, gave him the area, the price range
and an idea of the style of home. He set up some views and found us our perfect home on the first day.
All the transactions were professional and completed very quickly.
Due to some health issues we decided the house was not equable for us and being from Canada we decided to
sell. Randy also looked after our sale he was successful in very short order. He made everything very easy for
us, looking after all the legal transactions quickly and efficiently.
Randy Roach helped us buy and sell a house.
Lyle Taylor and Kathleen Mohan
We used Randy while purchasing several local rental homes and his market expertise and use of advanced technology made the whole process very enjoyable and easier compared to other agents we used in the past. We will certainly have him at the top of our list when we need another agent.
Randy was extremely helpful in selling our home without us being there. He took care of a lot of extras that would not normally be a realtors job, Because we dont live in arizona, it was of much importance that we be able to communicate via phone or email and that was the case with Randy. His expertise and help in making us deal with counter offers was also very much valued. Would highly recommend Randy if you are trying to buy or sell and would not hesitate a moment to hire him again.
Lisa and Sieg Siemens - Canada
Randy helped us buy a house in Mesa in the spring of 2012.
He did a great job for us. We visited a bunch of houses that were in our range... Randy gave us a nice list of houses south of Mesa... and then we finally settled on Mesa.
Randy knows alot about the general economy... and the real estate market ... and money. He gave us advice on alot of things, including property management. He's aggressive and energetic and gets things done.
We totally recommend Randy for house hunting.
FYI: I only gave him 4 stars in Negotiation, since I did not really witness his negotiation skills... but I'm sure they are strong !
Jeff Rowe & Soo Jung Kim
Randy, listened to my must haves and found me my perfect house in my perfect location. Randy arranged to take care of everything found on my house inspection so our move in was very easy. We love our home and are very satisfied with our choice of professionals.

I had selected the area and homes that I wanted to view. Randy made the contacts and showed us the properties. He then made a very timely offer, using his "remote office", and ultimately negotiated a deal. All aspects of closure and property title transfer went smoothly.
Art and Sue Ratte - Canada
We had been in contact for a few months watching the listings in our area - Randy provided us with these. When we were ready to fly down to look at homes he asked which ones we wanted to see. He arranged for us to see the homes we had chosen and helped us make an offer on the one we wanted. We were pleased with his services.
Lynn Park & Michael Batchelor - Canada
Randy was a great help in assisting us locating a home in the Queens Creek area and a property manager . The house is rented but in the future we will snowbird. Randy is very knowledgeable and knows the market.

Very Professional, Arrived from out of country, did not have much time. He had houses ready to view and drove us from house to house. Gave us his opinion of each home and recommended which one to purchase. Very helpful.
Eddy Lowen - Canada
I had an excellent experience purchasing my condo in Arizona through Randy. Not being from the area myself, he was extremely helpful in making me feel comfortable purchasing in an unfamiliar region. He was very honest and knowledgeable about the market. Randy has an uncanny ability to know what his clients want before they even ask. I highly recommend Randy as a realtor.
Jim N - Canada
Randy was recommended to us from a friend. We told him what we were interested in and he did an excellent job of finding properties for us to consider. He is very professional and guided us through the purchase of our property.
Janis and Ray Hall - Canada
Randy provided amazing service to my fiance and I. He drove across the Valley all the way to the edge of Buckeye to help us find the perfect house. As soon as we decided it was the one we wanted, he immediately got everything started for us to put in an offer. Being a first time home buyer, I was a little apprehensive at first, but Randy took care of everything. He even went as far as to work with our bank when there were delays on their end. I highly recommend him, and I know who I will use the next time I look at any property.
Randy helped us find the perfect home to fit our family and our budget. He took the time to listen to us, drove us around to houses he thought we would like, and guided us through the purchasing process. He came highly recommended and we couldn't be more satisfied with his professionalism and knowledge of the Phoenix area market. Years later when it was time for us to move again, we didn't look any further. We called Randy Roach.
Melissa and Eric Bahle
We first met Randy in August of 2011. We had come to Phoenix for 3-4 days to look for a home. We had been there in May, but had no luck in our house hunt. Upon first meeting Randy at his office it was quickly apparent that he was much more knowledgeable, with the entire Phoenix and surrounding areas as far as the real estate market was at that time. We let him know the main areas we wanted based on our wants and needs. He was able to put together a list of homes that fit into our criteria. Even in his office we were able to look at home listings in comfort as he had his computer linked to a big screen TV so we were able to all see the listings easily in a relaxed setting. Randy set-up a list of homes that we went to see over a couple days. He was always prepared for any questions we had, or if we happened to see something else he would make a phone call and get us an answer to questions about a home. We went home with the comfort level that dealing with Randy would be the way to go as we had now narrowed down the area we wanted to buy and the type of home. Randy kept us informed by sending listings and by phone. By October of 2011 we had found a home that we wanted, and even though we could not be in Phoenix Randy made the whole process of the purchase a good experience. From putting in the offer to having a home inspection to finding a property manager after the purchase every step of the home purchase was taken care of in a professional manner, and at no time did we have any issues or questions that Randy could not handle. He always kept us informed as to do what we needed when we needed to do it. We would not hesitate to use Randy again, or recommend him to use to anyone else.
Lloyd Swereda & Patti Danylecko - Canada
Randy was very helpful in finding two homes that we are presently using as investment properties. He was quick to answer or find answers to any questions we had about Phoenix and area, as we are from Canada. We appreciate his continued willingness to help after possession of our properties and would highly recommend him.
Julie & Trevor Reiman - Canada
Randy has an ability to make the process simple! He took the time to identify what it is that we were looking for and how important it was to us relative to all our needs and wants. He was very good at narrowing in on the properties that truly were in line with our expectations which saved a lot of time and potential disappointment. I appreciated the way Randy did not rush the process and made sure that we were completely comfortable with the decision. He knows real estate and he simply made the process as stress free as possible.
You would not be disappointed with Randy's professionalism and dedication.
Jeff and Denine McMahon
Randy provided us with excellent service when we were considering entering the Phoenix real estate market. I found that his website was very useful giving us the ability to research available properties for sale according to our requirements. He was very attentive to our needs and knowledgeable of the market conditions. With his guidance we were able to find and purchase a property that we are extremely happy with. Throughout the buying process he demonstrated a high level of professionalism and integrity.
Daniel & Barbara Varnelli - Canada
Randy helped us locate and purchase a home that we were looking for and within our budget. We found him very knowledgeable and professional.
We would have no hesitation in recommending him should we be asked.
Karen & Bill McFarlane - Canada
Randy displayed high levels of professionalism in all aspects of the search and buying process. He knows the Phoenix area well, focused on my price range, took me to areas he knew were safe, affordable, and appropriate given my parameters. His advice and approach to the offer process was excellent and we concluded with the property I wanted, within my price range and assistance on the close as this was my first purchase in the US. I highly recommend Randy to any Canadian buyers in the Phoenix market.
Dan Pigeon - Canada
I contacted Randy from Canada on his website and Randy contacted me the next day. He found many choices within my pice range and preferred locations. Once I was ready to make an offer, Randy negotiated a great deal for me. I would highly recommend him for Canadians buying in Phoenix.
Glen Mackenzie - Canada
We were very impressed with Randy's expertise and friendly nature. His knowledge of Phoenix was also impressive. He drove us all over the area to give us a better idea of what was available and answered all our questions including about banks and restaurants, etc. We can strongly recommend him to all our friends. We hope to do business again with him soon.
Bill and Leslie Furnival - Canada

We bought a second home in Gilbert AZ using Randy and his team. Their service was excellent, they listened to what we wanted and made sure that we saw everything available with the criteria we had given them.
Colin and Sandy Macsween - Canada
I give Randy a 5 star rating. Randy is very knowledgeable of the prices and the area. Randy was very easy to deal with and therefore created a very relaxing atmosphere. Thank you for that. I highly recommend him for Canadians and others.
Simon and Debi Dallaire - Canada
I have had the pleasure of working with Randy on a few occasions over the last 5 years. Randy was able to help me from Chicago prior to my arrival in Phoenix 1 yr. later. It did not matter that I wasn't ready to purchase at that time, Randy and his team of professionals are eager to listen to your needs and wants when purchasing real estate. When I finally moved to the valley, and did not purchase immediately. Randy was there to help and offer his knowledge of the valley until I was ready. Over my last 2 purchases in the valley, Randy guided me to purchase a home in an area where we felt was safe and home values were certain to increase in value even with a down economy. My last home purchase in Peoria was a winner, a safe neighborhood with great neighbors and central location. I wouldn't have even known about this area if it wasn't for the experience and knowledge of my agent Randy. I would highly recommend working with Randy and his team of associates, as my next purchase will be with Randy at my side. Kudos on a job well done.
Randy's work ethic is very professional and extremely helpful when we were thinking of selling our home, in Mesa. He put us in touch with the right people to get the things done we needed to to before listing our home. When it came to purchasing a home in Phoenix for our first time as Canadians, Randy really listened to our list of wants in a home and showed us just that. Our buying experience out of country was extremely easy with Randy's guidance and all of the good people he works with to get the job done. Thanks Randy ! We love our home away from home
Perry and Elle Jamart - Canada
Randy finds out what your desires are and the focus's on those only. He's great at narrowing the choices based on location; price; and neighborhood.
He's low pressure , but always there if needed. He let's you make the decisions.
Having him along kept the other real estate agents from pressuring us.
Randy made our home buying an enjoyable experience and it was done at lightning speed.
Evan and Debbie Seelye
Randy spend three whole days with us, Just with US!! It worked out really well because we were in Arizona from Washington state. In the time that we were here we purchased a home and did some of the paperwork. Prior to even meeting Randy, he and I stayed in touch on the e-mail so he could send me pics of what we wanted. He had all the criteria from me. Ends up that Randy found us the perfect home. We purchased it in November of 2012, closed on December 12, 2012 and then moved down last spring. If anyone I knew that was house hunting I would recommend Randy without a doubt to find the perfect home. He is honest, dedicated and very knowledgeable.
Lynne and Eldon Maples
Randy was very helpful when I purchased my condominium,. He followed up with any questions and concerns immediately. I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone. In fact, my Dad just hired him to sell his condominium with my recommendation.
"We were recommended to Randy Roach through friends who purchased a home in the Johnson Ranch area of Phoenix in 2012. We purchased our home through Randy in 2013. This home was a second home for us and we were nervous of the process as we do not currently live in Arizona. We contacted Randy and sought his assistance in determine what was available in the area close to our friends and had a specific list of "must haves" for the new house. Randy immediately started to send listings to us so we could get an idea of what was available, get familiar with prices and generally get a feel for the area. We established a date to visit Phoenix and Randy set up viewings for our arrival. We asked Randy to set up viewing times for a total of 10 houses and he managed to get everything in order so we could see the homes in one day. Upon arrival Randy picked us up and drove us to the houses we had picked to view. We were not pressured and overall Randy had set up a schedule for viewing which was easy to accomplish. We found the perfect home and purchased the house the next day. Randy helped take care of all the required details from title registration to our eventual walk through and made the entire process problem free. We have since recommended Randy to other friends who have purchased homes with his assistance. Thanks Randy.
Adrian and Mary Bone - Canada
Randy was our realtor for 3 different deals and we were very happy and impressed with the services he offers. I would highly recommend him as a realtor. Since we were non residents purchasing property in Arizona, one of the best features Randy offered was the personal portal he set up for us online. Once he knew our parameters as to what we were looking for, he set up our portal. This saved us a lot of time as only properties that were within our parameters showed up on our portal. Randy was always available when we made quick trips to view properties. We will definitely use Randy in the future.
Ed and Grace Maxwell - Canada
I am Very happy with Randy Roach and the work he has provided for me. I gave him a call about a house he had listed and asked him to show it to me. within 10 minutes he was at the condo and showed it to me. It was his listing so he was working with the seller and myself and we settled on a fair price and we were both extremely happy. Randy was very knowledgeable and professional and he followed up with me and my lender in a timely manner and everything worked out smoothly. I would refer Randy to my friends and i would definitely use Randy again the next time I have any real estate needs.
Randy helped me buy two rental properties. I was very impressed by his work ethic. I never had to wait to hear from him or receive documents. Randy was very knowledgeable about prices & location. I would work with him again in the future.
My request and expectations were high. I was looking for a desert property for a low price. Randy showed me many more properties than I had expected to be in my price range. We spent a weekend searching, which was the only time frame I had available. As we looked at the homes the ones that had clear problems (like the large cracks in the foundation) were quickly dismissed. As I considered the homes with potential, Randy had no problem speaking up and informing me of the various downfalls I had not realized, such as the cost to redo the terrible stucco job done on one of the homes that I had thought may a potential purchase. Overall the search had turned up one house that I loved and Randy agreed that we should move forward. We quickly found out the home was a product of a divorce. Randy said that sometimes this can become a problem and could delay the purchase. Fortunately this was not the case, Randy submitted our offer and a day later he said they accepted. The day we went to the house for the walkthrough the former owners had left the house very messy. We had been planning to move in a couple days later so Randy insisted the sellers have the house cleaned before we move in. Like clockwork the house was cleaned when we arrived, along with everything else Randy had specified must be done to close this deal. I have been enjoying my desert property ever since and will definitely buy own sell my next homes with Randy.
Aleida and Jim Lester
Randy was very helpful in our search for the perfect condo. We live out of town and Randy provided many listings for us to consider prior to arriving in Arizona. When we arrived in Arizona he had arranged for us to view the condos selected and we were able to find the perfect place for us. When we found the condo we wanted to purchase he negotiated a great deal for us. We highly recommend Randy for your home search!
Dawn Jeffries - Canada
Randy is detail oriented, very responsive, and very professional when it comes to Selling & Negotiating. These are the qualities I want when choosing an agent to help me buy or sell a home.
Len and Teresa Conlon - Canada
Randy helped us find the perfect home for us within 2-3 weeks. It was in a desirable retirement area and met our needs perfectly! I would highly recommend Randy to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home
Sharon and Don Stauss
Randy was excellent especially for first time home buyers. We were very new to the process and Randy kept us informed on what to do and what to expect in order to get the house of our dreams. The time we spent looking wasn't too daunting, but in that short time Randy was able to show us homes on short notice and at convenient times for us. Once we found our home, Randy negotiated our requirements and got us much more than we expected. After negotiations, Randy worked well on damage control due a mistake on our end. Overall the experience with Randy was fantastic and we are recommending him to our friends and family.
Dustin and Hallie Wright
When we first contacted Randy, he responded immediately and was very proactive and efficient. It also was very evident that he really enjoys what he does and is very knowlegable of the Arizona real estate market. Within a couple hours he had sent us some property listings based on our requirements. After reviewing these listings and talking to Randy we ended up making an offer. Randy expertly negotiated the terms of our offer and we arrived at a deal we were very happy with. He helped to arrange a home inspection for us and even actually joined us at the home with the inspector. He stayed in touch right up to closing and even after, keeping us informed and helping us out. We were so happy working with Randy. He did a great job which we really appreciated and we highly recommend him.
Bruce and Laurie Robertson - Canada
Randy acted as my agent in 2007 when I first bought property in Mesa. Recently I sought his help to sell and relocate. He has been very attentive and helpful throughout.
Betty Johnstone - Canada
We were very impressed with Randy's handling of our real estate transaction. He was very effective in facilitating a great deal on a home for us. Being our first real estate purchase in the U.S. we are thankful for his extensive knowledge and patient explanation of each step in the process. His affirmative negotiating skills with the seller's agent resulted in the best deal for us while at the same time respecting the sellers rights and situation.
Tom and Dianne Gerald - Canada
hi to describe our experience with RANDY WE ARE Joanne and Henricus de Boer and we purchased and sold property through Randy and this worked very well for us Randy took care of showing Joanne around to different places until she found what she liked and then helped wit the negotiations so it all went smooth at the closing we both like our new location very much thank you sincerely Joanne and Henricus de Boer
Henricus and Joanne De Boer
As "out-of-towners", Randy really took us under his wing and ensured all of our questions and concerns were promptly and satisfactorily answered. His involment continued after our departure for home, knowing our desire to settle in the area after retiring. After selecting a listing we liked from his frequent online posts while back in Ohio, Randy made all the arrangements for home inspection, financing and a myriad of other tasks too numerous to mention. His involvement and assistance continued during and after the purchase of our home, and we are confident his immeasurable assistance will continue well after we are settled in our new home. Thanks Randy!
Pat and Dennis Nelson
Randy has been very responsive and thorough in all my dealings with him for years. His extensive experience permits him to foresee and prevent problems before they even arise. I highly recommend his very capable service.
Randy was great to work with. We do not live in the Phoenix area so were very dependent on the realtor we chose. Randy proved to be trustworthy, responsive and very informative. He walked us through the entire process and made sure we understood how the US system worked. I would recommend Randy to anyone looking for a realtor in the Phoenix area.
Phil and Kelly Cervi - Canada
Our new home has everything we wanted and Randy played a large part in finding it. He also negotiated a great price for us and made it a seamless transaction. I would recommend hiring Randy to help you find a new home.
