My dad, Randy Scheidt is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about all things real estate. But I think one of the things that might make him best at his job,Is something our family likes to make fun of him for. And that is, he cannot go anywhere, without meeting everyone. On an airplane, standing in line, at a restaurant, It doesn’t matter. He will go to any length to get to know those around him and exchange contact information. In Randy‘s world, there are no strangers.
