Client Testimonials

A Few Words from Satisfied Clients....

Client satisfaction and referrals are my goals as a successful professional real estate agent. I have been fortunate to have worked with some wonderful buyers and sellers during my real estate career. I endeavor to do the best job possible for the client that I represent. Below are comments from a few of my happy clients.

Randy Taplin was perhaps the best buyer's agent I've ever dealt with in dozens of transactions (I move a lot). He quite literally saved me money and helped me with numerous viewings to find exactly what I wanted. One aspect that was not asked about in the list above is responsiveness, and he is without a doubt the most responsive agent I've ever worked with, always ready to jump on a new listing and follow up to get more information. Plus, it can't be overstated that he's just a great guy! ~ Krista Endres (12/2020)

Randy was very involved in the whole process and made many suggestions that helped us with the offer. ~ Lloyd Gill (12/2020)

I wish that Randy was the only agent in the business. He is top notch, responds immediately to phone calls and texts. Randy stays on top of every detail and arrangement. If I wasn’t purchasing my next newly built home from the builder, I would want Randy to travel to Vancouver to be my agent! ~ K. Collins (09/2020)

Randy went above and beyond for us! Very knowledgeable, professional and really looked after our needs with a property that was a challenge ~ J. Welch (09/2020)

Randy is a consummate real estate professional! I moved to Kitsap County from out of state after retiring. Randy's local knowledge was invaluable in finding a lot and a builder in an extremely tight market. I ended up purchasing and working with a high-quality developer to design and build a custom home. This was a new and stressful experience for me and Randy's advice and support were extremely helpful. It was also a long, drawn-out affair--made more so by the COVID crisis--and Randy was there for me every step of the way. The end result is that I now have a wonderful new home that is (nearly) everything I could wish for and Randy played a major role in making it a reality. ~ D. Salisbury (7/2020)

My experience with Randy as a first-time home buyer was exactly what I needed. Not only was I first time home buyer but I was purchasing this property from another state which made the situation a little more difficult. Randy was very patient in explaining the process at each point in the process and in a simple way that I could understand being that I had no previous experience. As for buying the house from another state and during this time of increased restrictions, he took the time to do video walk throughs and meet with my father so that he could be my eyes. Randy communicates well over the phone and through e-mail and always answers promptly and clearly. At no point during the process did I feel out of the loop, confused or like I didn't know what was going on. He gave me his honest opinion about the condition of properties and whether what the seller was asking for was fair. The whole process was stress free and seamless and that was entirely due to Randy's experience and relaxed demeanor." ~ J. Capen (6/2020)

The Best! Randy was my agent and went over and above the call of duty. Randy Taplin is probably the best agent I have dealt with ever. Very professional and great follow up.
~ David Fast

Hi Randy --A voice from the past....if only you were licensed to practice in the state of Texas! We have been dealing with the most inefficient agent ever, never returns calls, promises to check things today and maybe a week later one gets a response. We were totally spoiled dealing with you. You deserve a medal. Anyhow, we have bought a rundown condo close to our daughter which we hope to get looking decent pretty soon----the price was right! If only the agent will get us the key, we might even go down soon. Hope business is good for you---we still love our house. Thanks for being such a great agent. ~ Pam & Gerald Williams

Returning from an eleven year absence, we were totally unfamiliar with the process of buying a house. Randy Taplin advised and guided us all the way from searching for a suitable home, providing details, recommending assistance and explaining everything very clearly. We are so grateful.
~ Michael & Jean Glanister

Very good. Randy stayed on stop of everything thoughtout the process and was very good about communicating the status. ~ Doug & Lori Allen
