William Andrews and Vicky Carwein - Sellers of Malcolm Tennant 55
We write to share our past and recent experience with Mr. Randy Greenfield, Senior Yacht Broker, and express our highest regard for his handling of the sale last week of “WineR”, 55’ power catamaran. We first met Randy nearly five years ago as we began our search for “the boat” to cruise The Great Loop. Randy was our broker for the purchase of “WineR” four years ago. The process from start to finish proceeded flawlessly under Randy’s direction and oversight, from initial offer, through negotiations, sea trials and closing in December 2016. Randy’s obvious knowledge of the brokerage process and his attention to detail, as well as his decades of boating experience with all kinds of boats, helped calm our nerves surrounding this major luxury purchase, a first for us of this size and complexity of vessel.
With the completion of The Loop (on January 5, 2020) in sight we sought out Randy to broker the sale of “WineR”. Our experience with him and his obvious knowledge of “the business” had instilled in us the confidence that “WineR” would be in the best of hands for sale. And she was! From Randy’s suggestions of how best to prepare “WineR” to show her strengths, cruising with us for two days from Ft. Myers to Stuart to personally experience and be able to attest to her ride and handling, to immediate notification of an offer (while in Taiwan) and continual communication through acceptance and culmination of the sale, his outstanding broker skills were apparent.
We signed the official listing agreement on December 6, 2019, had the first showing to the buyers’ broker on January 3, and closed on February 7, 2020. We don’t know if this is a record for time between listing and close or not, but clearly Randy’s dogging of the process and clear and timely communication played a major role in the speedy and successful outcome of the sale.
There is no question that Randy’s extensive knowledge and expertise, his ability to read people and understand and respond to their needs (both the buyers’ and the sellers’), his own personal well-honed boating skills, and his attention to crossing every t and dotting every i assure that his clients are well served. He kept us, the buyers, four years ago and the sellers these past few weeks, focused on the critical path toward success and the process moving forward. Randy is simply the best! David Walters Yachts is fortunate to have him representing the company!
It has truly been our pleasure to know Randy and have him represent us, both as buyers and sellers. We highly recommend him to others, and should we be in the market for another boat in the future will, of course, seek him out.
