More about Randa Peterson
Randa is Canadian born. She was born and raised in Prince George, a small town in British Columbia 500 miles north of the border. Her mom was a skater and started Randa ice skating at age 7. You know you have to be diligent to get up at 5 AM every day to get down to skating practice when the temperature is 20 below, and she still is!
She was on her basketball, volleyball, and track and field teams in high school, and was actually selected for tryouts for the Canadian Junior Olympic Team. She could really move things along, and, hey, she still can!
As time went by, her skating improved to the point she was Northern B.C. Skating Champion, so at age 18 she ventured out into the world to become a professional skater with the Ice Capades, Holiday on Ice, and Ice Follies, first as a Corps de Ballet skater and then as a featured comedienne. Over 17 years, she toured the U.S., Mexico, Canada, and Europe.
Being a touring skating pro is not a bed of roses. You need to master new precision routines quickly, cope with unexpected obstacles, show up on time, and “put on the show” no matter what happens. It’s kind of like being a real estate agent!
Randa has a 31-year-old son, Justin, who lives in Los Angeles and is also a real estate agent. A family dynasty in the making! Randa and her husband left the tour so Justin could attend the same school for longer than a two-week stand in New York City.
She’s lived in Oakland since 1986, and knows the housing market in the area intimately as a result. She can be seen walking Dani, her rescue Collie mix, and Emmy, her rescue cattle-dog mix in all weathers to the amazement of the neighbors.
Randa has been a licensed real estate agent in California since 1989. Prior to that she was licensed in Minnesota and worked there for a time. She is a member of Oakland Association of Realtors, California Associaton of Realtors and National Asociation of Realtors. Randa has worked with many types of buyers and sellers from first time home buyers to sellers wanting to downsize after raising a family.
I’ve approached everything I do “like a pro” my whole life. Being a pro isn’t about me; in this case, it’s about you and your dream of a house you will love. I try constantly to understand what you want so I can connect you with exactly the home that’ll make you smile every day.
