20 to Know in Real Estate: Randy Sokol


Read the article HERE interviewing Randy about himself and his business on Columbus Business First.

  • I want to say thank you for working with me to sell our deli. Although we have known each other for years, I had never worked with you professionally. I was so impressed with your quick action to get the deli listed and marketed, consistent communication throughout the process and your network of contacts. I will definitely be using you as a recommendation to any of my restaurant colleagues that are looking to sell their business.

    I wish you nothing but the best.

  • Randy Sokol is truly a professional. He helped navigate through a complicated and lengthy negotiation with one of the largest commercial property owners in the city. At times, I was unsure the deal would come to fruition – but Randy kept me focused and he got the deal done – on my terms!

  • I started my working relationship with Randy almost three years ago when I began looking for the right space for my business idea. Randy has his finger on the pulse of the central Ohio restaurant market. Randy was able to get my deal done in a very efficient manor without all the hassle and red tape. His experience proved to be very valuable to me at the time of the sale and through the last few years as a consultant to my business. I am looking forward to working with Randy in the future as I believe he will be an integral part of my professional growth.

  • After owning my business for twenty years it was finally time to sell. I hired Randy Sokol to get the job done. He took great care in finding me the right people to purchase my business that I worked so hard to build. He always answered my phone calls and returned my messages in a timely manner. After a few short months, we are closing and for that I am grateful. My time with Randy is not over because I have renewed my contract with him to sell more properties and real estate. I have the utmost faith and trust that he will use all his skills as a negotiator and marketing expert to get this job done too. Even in such a down economy, he has the energy and contacts to persevere.

  • I’ve worked with many brokers but Randy’s knowledge and expertise far exceeds any other brother in Central Ohio. It’s great to work with someone who comes from the business and can truly understand the challenges and rewards of buying or selling restaurants in the region. Randy’s knowledge, experience, passion and understanding of the industry make him not only a great resource but consultant as well.
