“My goal was to do real estate in a different way when I established this company June 1st 2009. Not from the perspective of only selling, but to look for the perfect match between dream house and client. My philosophy is: it will only work when all involved are happy and connected by that personal touch,” says Randolph Arends, owner of Aruba Living Today. Together with his business partner Berend Prenger and a dedicated team they practice what they preach: mediation in Real Estate with a high service level. “I am proud to state that so far all of my clients stayed with us. I am not selling a fairytale, in ten years of course there were challenges too but it is about how you handle those. It’s like with family, you stick together with ups and downs. But the love is there.”
Services offered by Aruba Living Today are House and Land Sales, Rentals, Investments, Property Management, Vacation Rental, Mortgages, Insurances, Maintenance, Assist in Arrangements for Notary and Utilities, Guiding Bureaucracy Process and Assisting in Import of Furniture. Berend is also a certified Appraisal within the Dutch Kingdom meaning he does your appraisal report that is accepted by all banks and he delivers within three days. “This definitely speeds up the process of buying,” he says. This different approach of real estate is what sets Aruba Living Today apart and is also the reason why Randolph calls himself a property mediator instead of a real estate broker. “The personal touch is essential to me. I am stepping aside of the image that real estate brokers are only in for the commission. This image does not fit me at all, I am in for my passion and I can only do this from the heart.”
What better way to reinforce his words than sharing some of the amazing testimonials Aruba Living Today received from their clients. We made a selection for you because we lack space to publish them all.
“Randolph and his team helped us immensely to find our dream home on Aruba. Their service is excellent, before and after buying the house. His office also helped us with financing the property.
Finding the perfect home is the goal, but what I found just as important during the whole process is Randolph’s integrity. He really looks at what you need, doesn’t make false claims and also advices you correctly when it is not in his own interest. This makes you feel valued and in good hands.”
“Without any doubt the best real estate agent on the island! Randolph helped out buying our property on the island, representing us as a buyer. The guy knows the island and most people in Aruba what is a great help. His after sales goes way beyond expected and included services like helping getting connected to water, electricity and gas. If needed he can help you find renters for your house and managing it, again with the same service and transparency. Summarizing, the guy and his company are our eyes and ears on the island if we are not there.”
“My husband and I have been coming to Aruba for 30 years and have dreamed about owning our own home in Aruba. I was referred to Randolph from Aruba Living Today. I am a Realtor myself in the US for 38 years, so finding the right Realtor was the key. Randolph and his team has made this process a piece of cake. His integrity and honesty has made him a success, always available when we called or wanted to meet. Not only is he our Realtor, but a new lifelong friend!!! Be sure to call him.”
“Aruba Living Today is probably the best real estate agent on the island. Randolph and his team arranged long term rental houses for us, communication with them is always correct and they respond quickly. Absolutely recommend Aruba Living Today!”
“THE BEST! No other way to describe the way I was treated at this company. ABOVE AND BEYOND any expected services. 5 star all the way! Don’t hesitate.”
