What a pleasure to work with! This is my first home. We looked off and on for over two years. He was always quick to get us in to any place I was interested in. From the moment you arrive at the place he's pulling out the tablet cranking out facts, comps, sizes, peeking through the place sharing great insight. It's clear that he truly cares about his clients when he uses words like "us" and "we" when your going after a place. He has very strong overall real estate knowledge and is strategic in getting the deal done. There was even a time in the escrow process where it all fell apart (totally out of his control), and he found a way to put it back together. If you're looking for a solid, responsive, and caring agent that won't bombard you with a sales pitch, Rand is your guy. I'm going miss talking to him as often as I have the past couple tears. By the way, I've read through the other reviews on here and based on my experience they are all 100% accurate.

Rand recently helped us find a great house in our price range in Costa Mesa (during a tight market). He knew the area well and was very patient and never pushy. He always responded quickly via text or phone calls or even in person. When we wanted to look at a new listing, he set up showings quickly and was very accommodating. Rand was very helpful and patient through our entire purchase, always answering and resolving our many questions.

I would not be surprised, if you went searching for "The Perfect Realtor" in the Encyclopedia, you would find Rand's photo. There is no question for why there are so many "excellent" reviews on here. My Wife & I started looking for a home about a year, year and a half ago. We reached out to Rand given all of the excellent reviews we had read about him. As this was my Wife & I's first time buying a home, we were very picky, and unsure for what to expect during this process. As knowledgeable as Rand is, my Wife & I felt at ease. Rand patiently, and in no manner was he pushy, looked at homes with us for a little over a year.. When my Wife & I finally located a home with Rand, Rand delivered on every level, providing every quality you could ever ask for in a Realtor. Anytime information was needed, or a situation arose in Escrow, Rand was there to not only assist with the issue, but was there to ensure everything was completed and handled right. Rand would always check in with us, to make sure we were always comfortable, and aware of where we were at in the Escrow process. My Wife & I are grateful to have had Rand as our Realtor, and truly believe he does the right thing for his clients. We would recommend Rand to anyone looking to buy a home, or simply looking for information on buying a home. Thank you so much Rand ! We look forward to working with you again.

Ryan & Katie A.

We are very pleased with the service Rand provided us. He is hard working, professional, easy to work with. His knowledge of real estate in our area helped us through a difficult situation. We would recommend Rand to anybody looking for honesty, integrity and a sincere willingness to do the best for his clients.

Rand did such a good job dealing with the owner and listing agent to help my good friend to purchase his first house within such a short time. He was always available to answer any question and help to resolve any any issue we had. He is a very honest and down to earth gentleman - above all very easy to deal with. I would recommend him very highly to anyone who might be looking for a good and decent Realtor. Will be looking forward to working him in the future.

Rand is very flexible to work with. He is friendly, patient and listens to what you want. He is passionate about his work and makes you feel that he is really trying to help you in finding the right house that you want. He takes care of all the paper work and makes the complex and tiring process of paperwork much easier. We truly are thankful to Rand for making our dreams come true in such a short period of time. We are glad that we met you as our real estate agent.

Tenzin N.

We turned to Rand after being unhappy with a couple of other realtors. What a difference. Rand actually listened and cared about helping us find a great house. He was always available to answer questions and to help us out with our paperwork. He was always friendly and made us feel like we were his most important clients even though I'm sure he was dealing with people buying multi-million dollar homes.

Clive H.

Rand is amazing! Has gone above and beyond to help us square the deal away for our new Condo in Huntington. Amazing customer service and is beyond punctual about Everything!!! We have had some bumps in the road but they definitely were not due to Rand, THANK GOD!!!

Gene T.

After arriving in OC from Tennessee to find a house and with a limited time schedule Rand Penrod rose to the occasion by quickly and efficiently setting up appointments and taking me on several tours. He was generous with both time and expertise of the markets in the area I was looking in-what I thought would take a week to accomplish was completed in 2 days. I have a house to rent and now enough extra time to go surfing! Thanks Rand you're the best!

Burr C.

Rand Penrod went above and beyond to help my wife and me find our dream home. His vast knowledge of the market helped guide us to an amazing neighborhood in Newport Heights. No matter how many homes we asked him to show us he never complained or pressured us. He gave us expert advice while sharing his remodeling vision. He made him self available throughout the entire process until we had the keys in our hand.

Rand recently helped us find exactly what we were looking for a new property. We began our process with the intent to buy a turn key house, but soon switched gears towards finding a potential tear down or vacant lot. Rand was extremely patient throughout the entire process and quick to adjust are search criteria as we repeatedly altered are home buying goals. Before deciding to move towards the vacant lot or tear down idea, we made an offer on a house just a few miles from the home we ultimately closed escrow on. At no point during that offer/counter offer and eventual withdrawal, did Rand have anything but our best interests in mind. After we decided the house was not for us and wanted to look for something we could buy and then build, Rand immediately began the search again, not missing a beat. Having previously been in contact with a realtor who repeatedly requested we sign a buyers agreement, Rand's informal yet effective style was a breath of fresh air. He made the home buying process comfortable, enjoyable and a overall great experience. I would highly recommend Rand both first time and repeat buyers.

Stephanie S.

Rand went above and beyond to help our family find a great house! Rand spent a month and half looking at houses with us and never once complained or made me feel like I was taking up his time. He was always able to meet me-he has a way about him that makes you feel as though you are the most important client he has and you get all of his attention. We had some tough situations come up from some other agents and Rand was always able to work through them with me and kept me in the loop at all times. If you want an agent who is professional, caring, patient, knows the area he works in, trustworthy, and just with overall good intentions then Rand is the realtor for you!

Krys M.

Rand recently helped us find a great house in Costa Mesa. This was our first time buying, and we weren't exactly sure what we wanted. Rand took us to see a variety of places and helped us narrow down our search to find exactly what we were looking for. He's lived in the area his entire life and has a good feel for the character of every neighborhood. He also took the time to understand what we liked and didn't like about various properties so that each time we went out to look at places, we got closer to what we wanted. He helped us make an offer, and guided us through the closing process, referring us to an excellent home inspector, mortgage broker, etc. to get everything in order. Rand is incredibly responsive, even outside of normal business hours. We could always count on getting a response to our questions via text or email in a few minutes, even late at night. We'd highly recommend Rand. If you're a first-time buyer and are intimidated at the prospect of buying a home, having someone like Rand on your side really takes the stress out of the entire process. Thanks again!

Jason T.

Rand was excellent. We love our home, and we owe it all to Rand. I actually worked with two real estate agents before meeting with Rand. The difference was night and day. Rand wasn't pushy or anxious to make a sale, like the other agents I worked with. He really knows the Costa Mesa and Irvine area well. Once we did find a place we liked, Rand did pretty much everything short of signing the papers for me. The house closed about a week early because of his diligence. He was always available by phone, SMS, and email. I'd recommend his work to anyone.

Jacob R.

I came to California very apprehensive of finding a place to live as I had no knowledge of the area. Was I lucky to meet Rand Penrod! He is a very professional, honest and knowledgable realtor. He found a perfect place for us in Irvine in only a day and a half of searching. Call Rand. He is the best at what he does.

Terry G.

I hired Rand because of his personality and because we had a few mutual interest and could not have been happier. I found was that he was knowledgeable of the market, professional in his dealings, and provided us with top notch service throughout the process. He was very prompt in addressing any concerns and followed up above and beyond my expectations on anything we asked for. He was easy going and patient with us, but quick and efficient with any requests we made. He accommodated my busy schedule and made it a point to keep us abreast of any relevant developments. I have purchased 3 homes and this was by far my best experience. I WILL absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the Newport, Costa Mesa, or Huntington Beach area. He is a genuinely nice guy who met our every need, an asset to the profession...

Charles K.

It's not often you see other realtors review (or at least positively) review a fellow realtor. But I am a realtor and often I have been able to see Rand in action and he is truly a caring professional. I've seen him help his clients thru the process of buying a home and he's patient and knows his local market well. Overall just a good person too!

Danae A.

Rand is the kind of agent consumers want on their side and the kind of agent other agent's want to work with. I recently had the pleasure of doing business with this guy and he's as cool as they come. No unnecessary pushing and pulling, just genuinely good intentions and a facilitator to making sure both parties are happy. It's rare to find a real estate agent like Rand. We've done two transactions together in the last two months, and I hope there to be many more in the future.

Jay O.

Rand has been great!!!! He helped us sell our house quickly. He's been patient with all of our neurotic emails/texts in the process of finding something else. I think I would have lost my mind in this process if he weren't helping us!

Kris Z.

Rand has been an awesome realtor during the process of selling my condo! Quick, efficient, professional and hardworking. Available to answer my questions day or night. Always keeps a smile and never making you feel pressured. Makes the process as stress free as possible. I'd highly recommend Rand anytime!

Wendy S.

This guy is top knotch! He has bent over backwards for us. Although we have extremely stringent guidelines, and a few things working against us, Rand has made us feel as comfortable as we can. Thinking out of the box when asked to, bringing some amazing ideas and tactics to the table. I truly feel like "OUR" best interests are Rand's priority. What a crazy market! "We will get this done!" I think that should be your calling card! If you've been looking a for a professional, trustworthy person to help you find your home... this is the guy! Thanks for all your help Rand!! I have no doubt "We will get this done! Update!!! It's been a month and a half that Rand bent over backwards to get us into our first home!!! Great job Rand, I know it wasn't an easy one!! But, you proved you aren't afraid of putting on your gloves and getting to work!!! ...this is just our first deal together!!! highly recommended!!

Al P.

If you want a real estate agent who will work tirelessly to help you find the perfect home, Rand is your guy! Not only does he bend over backwards to accomodate your schedule and needs, he does it all with a sense of humor and a smile on his face. Multiple times he was able to show us listings in a matter of hours. Being first time homebuyers, he patiently helped navigate us through the complex process of purchasing a home. You will never feel in the dark about what is going on - he always responds to your calls, emails and texts in a timely manner. His "can do" attitude makes you feel confident you will find the home of your dreams, even in this crazy real estate market! Most importantly, you really feel his sense of responsibility in finding you the perfect home. From day one he was completely invested in our search, and helped us find the perfect house under a serious time constraint. I Couldn't recommend a better agent for any of your real estate needs!

Meghan G.

Rand was extremely helpful in our home buying search. Not only was he our agent for our home purchase - he guided us through selling our former property as well. Rand was very professional and he was quick to respond to any and all inquiries at any time of day and night. In addition to his real estate expertise, Rand also has extensive knowledge of the lending side too. He is quite informative and his positive attitude kept us upbeat and made our home search enjoyable and painless. We would highly recommend Rand for all of your real estate needs. Although he is based in Costa Mesa, don't hesitate to use him for all parts of Orange County.

Joseph L.

First of all, we have to thank Rand for helping us buying our first home in a very difficult market. Before we met Rand, we worked with several agents for over half a year but were not able to buy one. We were so frustrated and almost gave up. Then we met Rand at an open house where he was a host. Our first impression of Rand was that he's very professional. Working with Rand, we found him just as a great person overall, who is also very polite and easy going. Professional skills wise, Rand is also great. He's knowledgable, hard working, patient, thorough, fast and always seems to be available. We are a young couple and we can search the inventory and comps ourselves. All we needed was someone we could trust to be on our side to give us unbiased and honest advice and we felt Rand was that person. Another thing that we like about Rand is following through. Whenever we put in an offer, he always kept us posted and not waiting for us to ask. Highly recommend!

Hung N.

When you are buying a property, you need an agent who is going to listen to what you are looking for and what you can afford! Rand is that agent! He was patient and not pushy! I highly recommend Rand for all your real estate needs!

Jimmy M.

Rand was the man! He consistently answered our questions promptly, setting our mind at ease. He was always ready and eager to show us a new property, even the crazy ones we found ourselves, and was able to find many options for us. He had great insight into the market and was able to negotiate a great price despite the hot OC market. Once we seriously committed to buying the entire process went quickly and smoothly, thanks in large part to him. I would highly recommend working with Rand and when the time comes to buy or sell again it will be with him.

Ryan & Jennifer H.

Buying a house is a big decision, especially for a first time buyer. Rand did a phenomenal job finding me a great home and making sure I was comfortable with my decision. I initially had no idea what to look for, but Rand diligently searched for what I wanted and patiently answered all of my questions. I really appreciated his honesty and willingness to move at my own pace. I couldn't have asked for a better agent and would recommend his services to anyone interested in buying a home.

Dina A.

I have had the pleasure of working with Rand on 3 purchase loans where he was representing the buyers. In all 3 deals the escrow closed prior to the 30 day escrow thanks to great communication from rand and his team as well as insuring that everything I needed as a lender was correct and provided in a timely manner. I love working with Rand and I highly recoemmend him as both a listing and a buyers agent.

Brett M.

When looking for a house you want to have the right person helping you. If you are thinking about buying a home without an agent, think again! There are tons of details that you need to know as a buyer and a seller and you don't want to make mistakes that can cost you your dream home. Picking the right agent can also get you on the inside track to some really great listings. If you are looking for an agent that's going to work hard and lead you the right way Rand is your man ... He will make you feel comfortable with the process and doesn't pressure you into getting something that's not right for you. But don't be fooled by his mild mannered demeanor.. He can be a "Bull Dog "when he needs to be to get you the right house.

Shant D.

Rand is a hardworking, professional, and an informed real estate agent. When selecting someone to work with it is important to have someone that is honest and reliable, look no further than Rand! Whether looking to purchase or sell a property, look no further than Rand Penrod, he will represent you and your interests well!

Dave G.

Rand was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all the phases and processes necessary in helping us buy our home. He was available to us whenever we needed him and very patient with all the questions we had as first-time home-buyers.
