We got excellent recommendations for additional service providers from him. A wonderful experience from start to finish. Would absolutely recommend.

Donna J Deerwester (Home Owner)

Katie did an absolutely fantastic job finding us the perfect home which suits our needs as first-time home buyers.

Much of the housing search she was able to accomplish with us while we were living half way across the country, and she was engaged the entire time by giving us recommendations daily via the online portal. My wife and I strongly recommend Katie as the perfect match for a realtor in the Madison area.

Jared Siebenaler

Katie made our home selling and buying process very easy.

We closed on the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home all on the same day. With all the moving parts we were a little concerned about it all working out but Katie made it happen just like she said it would and it all went very smoothly. Throughout the process she was very quick to respond to questions and concerns we had. I don't think I ever waited more than an hour for her to respond to an email or phone call. She was also very good at explaining everything we had questions about. I would definitely recommend her to anyone thinking about selling or buying a home. We couldn't be more satisfied!

Brian and Michelle Allaby (Home Sale/Buy)

Katie was excellent in communication and availability.

She quickly identified the type of home we were looking to purchase and provided a significant amount of options in a short period of time. When we found the home we were interested in buying, Katie made sure we were walked through the process and informed every step of the way. Nothing came as surprise working with Katie which is ideal when making the largest purchase of our lives.

Chris and Krista Burtch (1st Time Home Buyers)

You deserve an experienced team who has intel into the market and has a reputation for tenaciously protecting client interests.

Their uncompromising integrity and hard working, family oriented values will ensure your success. Katie and Sheri truly get to know you, allow you to feel comfortable with the process, and tailor their service based on your needs and expectations. They are quick to respond all the time, every time. You work directly with them, not an assistant, because they prioritize you. They make things happen, have great insight, and take an active role in this competitive market. We would not be living in the home we were meant to live in had we worked with another realtor. Highly recommend anyone thinking about selling or buying to simply meet this team. You'll see the difference.

Nicole P (Therapist )

To whom it may concern: If you are looking to purchase, or sell a property, and you don't know who to use, Randy is your man!

We spent about five months looking for the right property, and with some special restraints, that would have drove most off, but not Randy, he stuck in there, and we got the right property, at the right price, and all is well! I have owned eleven homes in my life to this point, which means that many realtor's, but I could not say enough about Randy, he really went the extra mile, and then some. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor! Sincerely, Mark S. Hurtig

Mark S. Hurtig (Independent Business Consultant)

It was truly amazing how quickly our home sold and we appreciate all that you did to bring that about.

Thank you so very much! Your method of getting things done really works and we will forever be grateful.

Iva and Royal Eklof

Dave and I want to thank you for everything you did for us!

There was a story about who should be "Man of the Year" -- and Dave and I believe that title belongs to you! There is no way we could have accomplished a sale, a purchase and a wedding all in the short period of time that we did it -- without you! Working with you was a complete joy and getting to know you as a person topped it off! :) Take care, stay in touch and stay awesome!

Jenny and Dave Wise

Randy did a fantastic job educating my wife and myself on the timing and procedure of selling our home.

He has quite a bit of local knowledge as well as experience in dealing with a hot marketplace. His contract skills and follow through stand out in our experience.

Austin Adler (Client of Randy Lenz)

My husband and I sold our duplex and purchased our first family home, with the help of Randy Lenz as our realtor, twenty-three years ago!

We were so impressed with his timeliness, knowledge and, his ability to guide us through the first-time home buyer maze, we hired him a second time to assist us when we purchased a rental property almost ten years ago. With his help for the third time, we recently sold that rental property! Within just days of putting it on the market, we received multiple offers above our asking price. Randy helped us navigate contracts and told us exactly what to do, without breaking the bank, to sell this property. Everything from when to list it to improvements that were necessary for a fast sale! We wholeheartedly recommend Randy Lenz for all of your real estate needs.

Jeff and Hallie Ringhand

I referred a long time friend and client to Randy who wanted to sell his rental home in Madison.

From the moment I first spoke with Randy about the possible referral he was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the Madison, WI market. I ended up choosing Randy for the referral and he did not disappoint me or my client who was selling from out of state. The house had several issues some known and some that were surprises at the last minute and he handled it them all like a true pro. I highly recommend Randy if you are looking for an honest and professional Realtor in the Madison area! I wouldn't hesitate to send him any other referrals!

Mark Deemer (Realtor at Round Table Realty)

Thank you for the handyman referral!

Years after my closing, I still know I can always call you and I know you'll always have a referral or an answer to my real estate questions!"

Lisa Rader

Katie is amazing.

She is the perfect choice for first time home buyers. She answered all of our questions and really stood by us every step of the way in the sales process.

Katie Steepy

Randy and his team did an excellent job of preparing and executing an estate sale of my parents home in Middleton.

His team managed the project from start to finish with an a very high degree of professionalism that reduced my workload in the process and made me feel extremely comfortable with the team. I highly recommend Randy and his team.

Ed DeMeo (VP HRIS)

Thank you for everything, Randy!

Getty and I both went to an open house you held thinking we wouldn't be buying a home for the next few years. Thank you for making it so easy! We appreciate how you were always in constant contact, always available and always ready to help explain if we didn't understand. Working with you has been quite a pleasure! Words cannot express the gratitude and happiness we have -- thank you, thank you, thank you!

Jessamyn Roll

Kasey and I would like to thank you so much for all of your help with the house buying process.

We learned a lot from you and appreciated all the wisdom you shared with us, and for having a sense of humor all along the way! Thank you so much again, it was truly a pleasure working with you!

Megan and Kasey Miller

Hi Randy, I'm so glad you were recommended to me as a Realtor!

I am so happy with my new home! I also appreciate all the recommendations you made for contractors to work on my condo. Everything looks fantastic and I couldn't be happier! Thanks again for all your help and for being so accommodating. I am so glad we were able to find a great fit!

Emily Yslas

Randy Lenz is a terrific realtor.

Always listens to what we want and need. We have used Randy for 3 house sales and 1 purchase. He worked very hard to find us the house we were looking to buy!

Deborah A Killerlain (Accountant)

Thanks for being so great to work for!

I think I've told everyone else but you!

Amy Gochenaur

Randy Lenz is truly a top class professional.

Choosing him to handle a real estate transaction is the best choice one can make. His knowledge, follow through and expertise is second to none. He will protect, respect and fight for his clients, no matter how long a transaction will take. Many thanks Randy for your help in selling our vacant land in Fitchburg,Wi. Ben & Diane Valenza The Villages, Fl.

Ben & Diane Valenza


We cannot think of enough good things to say -- except for this -- your professionalism in all real estate matters was so impressive and appreciated. Being first-time homebuyers, we were clueless and therefore naive to all things real estate. But you never talked down to us or treated any question as silly. We will highly and eagerly recommend you to anyone as you treat your customers as No. 1 at all times! We love our new home and thank you for making the process of finding it so enjoyable.

Autumn and Eric Leibbrandt

Randy, I just wanted to thank you and your wonderful team for everything you did in helping to sell our home!

Even though things got tough for a while, you stood strong and came through for us! It is such a pleasure working with people who put 100% effort into their work. Thanks again for everything!

Mary Lessner

Randy was great to work with in every way.

He was well prepared the day we looked at homes and had an easy going personality that made home buying fun. When we found a home, Randy was on top of every quirk in the process that popped up and had it addressed before we even had to consider on what to do. We ended up with a home perfect for us with all of its issues addressed before we stepped inside. This is our third home we have purchased and Randy has been the best realtor we have worked with.

Lance Hill (Home Buyer)

Randy did a wonderful job for us.

He listened to everything we wanted, was up front with us about what he thought we would and wouldn't like at various properties, but never pushed us to accept his opinion on anything. We couldn't be happier with our experience, and our 5 year old is still waiting for Realtor Summer Camp to open so he can become Randy's full time assistant.

Jeremy Weaver

Hi Randy, Thank you for all your help and advice with the purchase of our new home!

We appreciated your patience! :) Thanks again!

Christine Kass & Tony Baccam

Randy was our agent 20 years ago when we bought a larger home for our growing family, and he was an easy choice to sell our house when we were ready to downsize.

His experience was invaluable. Whether it was getting skilled people to do necessary repairs on our house, catching key issues on the buyer's offer and at closing, or just being there to answer every question we had along the way, Randy was always there for us. He helped make our transition a very smooth one.

Robert Hunt (Retired State Employee)

Randy has been a great realtor for our family.

We have purchased 3 properties with his guidance over the years. He is very experienced and knowledgeable about income properties as well as single family homes. He helps you get the right home at the right price. An. I would recommend him without reservations!

Theresa Frey

Thanks again, Randy, for appearing in our video for first-time homebuyers!

After watching your performance, it's easy to understand why you are a leader in your field!"

Dave Litchy (Marketing Specialist, Wisconsin Housing & Economic Development Authority (WHEDA))

It was truly amazing how quickly our home sold and we appreciate all that you did to bring that about!

Thank you so very much! Your method of getting things done really works and we will be forever grateful!

Iva and Royal Eklof

Randy Lenz is truly the best choice you could make in choosing a realtor!

Randy made the selling and previous buying of our home as easy as possible. He is fun to work with and always a well prepared. With 30 years of experience in reality Randy is incredibly knowledgeable in the region and takes the busy work out of researching a sale or purchase. He has recommendations for anything you could need throughout the process (i.e. home repairs, appraisal ) and provides answers to any question in a timely manner. He provided me with all the information up front to feel secure and knowledgeable about the sale and purchase of our homes. Thank you Randy for all your amazing work and help with both the sale and purchase of my home!!

Marcy Cooley

I want to thank you for your real estate expertise and mentorship during the sale of our Verona home.

It meant a great deal to me!

Jo Ann Boyle

Katie and Sheri helped us build our new dream home with Veridian and sell our home.

Our experience with them was both professional and very warm and friendly. They were great advocates for us, made sure that we were not missing a single thing in the building process and took everything we said that was important to us in both building and selling and made sure everything exceeded expectations. It was seamless and even fun to work with them!! Strongly recommend for any of your buying or selling needs.

Kristin and Andy Jakubowski

My wife and I loved working with Katie.

She's incredibly professional, creative, timely and responsive to emails, voicemail's, texts and we would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home!

Matt and Emily Smith (Home Buyers)

Dear Randy: I want to thank you for your help and attention to detail and especially the lender referral.

If not for your collaboration, even though you represented the homeseller, Dan and I would most likely not be homeowners today. Thanks again!

Heidi Henkel

Thank you, Randy, for your persistence in getting the condo sold.

It only takes one Buyer and fortunately you found the only one we needed.

Brian Schmuann

Randy is the best!

My fiancé and I worked with him for some 6 months and we really got to know him. Randy is personable, experienced, knowledgeable, and patient. He listened to us and stood by our side through the ups and downs. For 6 months Randy communicated with us often, was always ready to show us a home, and held a positive attitude. We'll never forget his ability to spend 20 minutes in a home and effectively communicate to us the pros, cons, and potential future considerations of the home. As first time home buyers, this was invaluable. With his expertise, we were able to find a great home, and we are nothing less than thrilled with his services. We absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to find their next home! Thanks Randy! -Pam and Matt

Pamela Salazar (Surgical Technologist)

"We love our great new home!

Thank you so much for making our relocation from San Francisco to Madison incredibly smooth, efficient and enjoyable! Your professionalism and expertise, together with your network of resources, made this all possible."

Chan Stroman & John Roll

For starters I don't right reviews but Katie really went above and beyond helping us.

She really impressed us with her attention to details and having all the information on the Properties that we looked at. Also we never felt any pressure to put an offer in on any of the properties until we knew for sure that we had found what we wanted. I definitely recommend her for anyone that wants to have great experience with searching and purchasing a new property.

Carlos Cunha (Best Experience buying )

I want to express my gratitude to Randy Lenz for all he's done for me in the last 10 years!

I know we were always a "bit player" with a small townhouse and then buying and eventual sale of my mini-condo. And who would want to go to bat for such a tiny payback? Well, Randy did! He always made me feel important and took such great care of my interests. I highly recommend Randy and his team because they know their business! Randy is the best!

Lisa King Harding

I had been considering a move out of state for awhile, but I needed to sell my condominium in Madison.

My brother, Bill Huemmer, is a local mortgage professional so I asked him for advice. I needed someone with proven condominium sales, who knew the Madison real estate market, and that was easy to work with. Bill gave Randy Lenz his highest recommendation! I hired Randy to sell my home, packed up my belongings and hit the road. What did I get for putting my trust in Randy Lenz? I got a Realtor that kept me informed and got my condominium sold quickly! I have peace of mind. And that is priceless! If you are looking at buying or selling a condominium in the Madison, WI, area, hire Randy Lenz as your Realtor!

Michael Huemmer

I have already recommended Randy Lenz.

He did a great job for us. He was so much fun to work with and at the same time he was completely professional. He helped us sell our home and buy a new one. He was with us every step of the way. I appreciated how he was always available when I had questions or when I got scared. He's very understanding and never made me feel my concerns were silly. I hope I never move again, but if I do I'll call Randy.

Mary and Jeff Wise

Working with Randy was an absolute joy.

My wife and I were first-time home buyers, and Randy helped us every step of the way. He was friendly, professional, punctual, and most importantly worked tirelessly to help us find our dream home. We are forever indebted to Randy for his persistence and honesty as we went through the home search and home buying process. He took care to ensure we met all our deadlines. I never expected our realtor to be so good at keeping in touch with us and reminding us of due dates with friendly emails and texts. He made it his personal duty to ensure our success, and I can't thank him enough for that. Randy was not only dedicated but an all around great guy. His friendly personality and humor injected levity into otherwise nerve-wracking situations. He continues to be a support to us as we do a small remodel from out-of-state. He was and continues to be flexible and has a heart for serving his clients. We will absolutely be seeking Randy's assistance when we ultimately sell this home and buy our next one. I cannot recommend him strongly enough. His experience and commitment are true qualities. We could not have had a better experience.

Gil Harmon

Katie was awesome.

It can be frustrating to purchase or sell a home and Katie is professional, knowledgeable, and very responsive. Enjoyable to work with. I would highly recommend her.

Nadine and Neal McLeod

Randy's business expertise and down-to-earth personality made listing and selling my home a complete breeze.

He answered all of my questions in a way that I could understand and kept me informed all the way through the process.

Gina Maniscalco (Business Processing Technician)

I can’t say enough about Katie!

She was absolutely fantastic to work with. As a first home buyer, the entire process can be a bit scary and overwhelming. Katie took the time to understand our wants and needs in a home and made sure to find something that was right for us. As a couple that was not in a hurry to buy, she worked with us over quite a few months and never gave up on finding our perfect house. Even after buying and moving in, she’s checked in with us to make sure things are going as planned. I’d recommend Katie to anyone!

Trisha Laufenberg (Administrative Assistant )

Katie was a joy to work with while we were searching for a home in the Madison area.

She'd helped us find perfect house and understood our frustration when houses didn't meet our needs. During lengthy negotiations, Katie kept us informed on every step. We're glad Katie fell into our hands!

Pamela Dunkel (Home Buyer/Homemaker/Retired Dental Administrator)

Thanks for helping us buy our first home!

Working with you made the experience understandable and comfortable! We look back at the closing and felt so confident sitting on your side of the table! Thanks for everything!

Reed and Deana Foster

Randy, what a great guy you are!

This month marks one year in our new home and we want to let you know how much we appreciate working with you, and what a pleasure it is to know you! We wish you continued success!
