Broker, Assistant to Jessica Sadler
Grad school brought Randi and her husband Daniel to the Triangle and after 6 years Durham is officially home! Randi has two little girls that often accompany her to work and keep her busy at home. As a part-time assistant to Jessica Sadler, Randi feels so fortunate to be associated with a top-notch agency and still have the flexibility to spend time with her girls in and around Durham.
What did you do before real estate? I taught Business, Personal Finance, and Economics at Green Hope High School in Cary, then stayed home full-time for a year and a half after my girls were born.
What do you do outside of work? Reading, hiking, journal-writing, and trying out new restaurants are all things I love to fill free time with. I also enjoy cooking and baking, so I am constantly trying out
new recipes and experimenting with creating my own. A big part of my day is wrapped up in the joys of mothering my toddlers and crazy Labradoodle, Rosie: Playgroups, playgrounds, and games of chase and fetch in the backyard!
How would you spend $100 in Durham? I'm going to assume that it's a Saturday, because one of my favorite things to do in Durham is go to the Farmer's Market and it's always open on Saturdays, so here we go! I would start at the Scratch booth and pick up a Buttermilk and a Dark Chocolate Doughnut Muffin (to share with the kids of course!) ($2), next I would head to one of the many farmers' booths that sell fresh flowers and choose some for my kitchen ($8). Then I would wander through the covered area and stop at Moondance Soaps to buy a bar of Goat's Milk Soap, perhaps to use as a hostess gift or in a powder room ($4). Next, I would get in line at Fickle Creek Farm's booth to buy farm fresh eggs, a free range chicken, and perhaps some bacon or steaks-- something to really make myself feel guilty :) ($25). Lastly, I would stop by Lyon's Farm or another vender for some seasonal veggies to pair with the meat and poultry ($5).
After stopping by home to put all my groceries away, I would go to Dance Theater South to take a Zumba class from Leslie Anderson (got to work off the doughnut muffins!) ($10 with childcare). Since I'm in the area, I may swing by Anthropologie at Southpoint to find some knobs for the cabinet I recently had refinished with glass by Clear Vue ($20). Since I'm running out of money at this point, I'll need a light snack for lunch- the Pimento Cheese at Parker and Otis sounds perfect! ($4). For dinner, I'll also choose something that packs a lot of flavor for the dollar: La Vaquita Taqueria! Since I can feed my whole family of 4 for about $20, we'll go there and eat outside on the picnic tables if the weather cooperates ($22).
Your most recent restaurant visit? Parker and Otis (pimento cheese- YUM!).
