My Background

I am a naturally curious person who found a home in the travel industry in 1992. As my experience in destinations, itinerary planning and travel technologies has grown, so have my relationships with travel suppliers and clients. I get a lot of satisfaction in really understanding my clients and constantly challenge myself to find joyful experiences for every traveler.

I have a BA from Vanderbilt University, an affinity for the outdoors and animals and love learning about world cultures.

We have used Randie as our go to travel agent for years. We have travelled extensively with our family to Europe, the Caribbean and Central America. Randie has handled all of our trips flawlessly. She had a great feel for the type of hotels, etc we like and we have recommended her to many of our friends who have also had excellent experiences. She is superb. Chris55

Randi planned a knockout trip for us in Costa Rica, giving us a sense of the variety of experience in this lovely country. Her guides were knowledgeable, personable and professional. We did this trip with very good friends who think this is one of the very best trips ever. Would use her again in a heartbeat.

Randi did a great job for us. We went on a Christmas markets tour on Avalon cruise ship. She got us transportation to Dulles and booked our airline flights as well as a hotel at our last stop. We are very pleased with her attention to detail and to listening to our wants amd needs.

Randie was nothing short of amazing. It was our first trip to Costa Rica, and she captured the essence of the country, as well as the adventure and relaxation we were looking for, in an amazing, well-paced 6 days. Super friendly and knowledgeable, and fit our desires within our budget - with no shortage of luxury. Highly recommend!

Randie has planned 3 trips for me and all have been perfectly executed--from air travel, river cruise accommodations, ground travel, hotels, and all the little incidentals. You can make any request or ask any question and she will get back to you immediately. I would never consider using anyone else.

Last week I contacted Randie to help me find the best air travel for a trip we will take later this spring. I specifically wanted to avoid one airline and one departure airport, and needed an open jaw. She sifted through all the many options, which would have taken me quite some time, and found an itinerary and price that were very agreeable to me. This is why I value her expertise! She was able to save me time and, I believe, money, and offered a solution with which i am very pleased!

Relaxing Vacation

My plans for the trip started out with trouble.  I had given Randi the wrong dates for my vacation.  Randi took care of my mess and got back with me right away with the whole trip reschueled including the air transportation. What a relief. Everything else went wonderfully.  This is the second year we have worked with Rhandi and both have been great experiences!

Ms Rosenberg anticipated all our wants and put us in hotels near train stations when possible. She even arranged one with a free laundry a little over halfway in so we could wash all our underwear and thus carry less. Her astute tips saved us much time and trouble. We were able to concentrate on our love of Italy which greatly increased on this trip. Brava

Randie is a very competent travel agent. She communicated and followed up with all the necessities of the trip. We followed the booking being selected by a friend. Some of the details were not reviewed sufficiently by us. Had we conveyed more specifics to Randie, we would not have taken the trip. This is no condemnation of Randie, but is of us. So, let her know what you wish in your trip, and just as importantly, what you would not like to wish.

Highly recommended!

We worked with Randie to book our two week honeymoon to Turkey. In the midst of wedding planning and all the other things on our plate, having Randie plan our trip was a lifesaver. She made things easy, respected our budget (but also gave us advice about how far our money would go) and gave us fantastic recommendations of places to go and stay. For the ease of the having the airport pick-ups alone Randie was totally worth it! She really made us feel taken care of and she even executed an itinerary change while were on our trip. From car rentals, to advice on cruising the Bosphorus to great hotel recommendations, Randie is an outstanding travel agent who made our honeymoon possible!

Randie was recommended to us by some people who had used her for a month long trip to Australia. We were planning a honeymoon and didn't know where to start.  She talked to us about what we wanted and recommended several places. Randie helped us plan a beautiful trip to Hawaii from flights to resorts and even excursions. She knew all the best places to go and it was perfect! We had some specific demands and changed our plans several times and Randie was happy to help without hesitation. A true pro! And booking through this agency got us so many extra's and perks that we would NEVER have had without them.  We got the royal treatment! I will never plan my own vacation ever again. We will be clients for life!

Greek island adventure

By: nancy

Randie, as always, did a wonderful job of covering all the details. However, her counterpart in Greece was not as thorough. All in all our vacation was fantastic, but a few small details were less than the usual Brownell standard. We have informed Randie and she has followed up with her Greek counterpart. We had a wonderful time in Athens and our guide there was terrific. We loved our sailing adventure and felt that our captain was top notch. This was a great vacation

How can luxury be so personal?

By: SallyS

Reviewed on: 08 Oct 2014

A gold leaf expert on staff year round; hand corsages, fresh juice and perfumed oil at check in. How can this be anything but over the top? It was surprisingly intimate. The butler, the golden camel burger, the turndown service of feathery soft beds. Special damask soft towels for hands and terrycloth for feet? A flight of dates at the date bar overlooking the sea?knowledgeable servers gave advice on the tasting of five kinds of dates, with cardamom coffee. When the boys splashed into the pool, with Frank Gehry's architectural towers as a backdrop, the lifeguards and towel minders helped compose the right picture to share with family immediately. The concierge helped us name all the staff who had assisted us with juices and turkish delights. We returned the room key, shaped like a giant coin. As a prize for turning it back in, the desk ladies gave us a golden bookmark shaped like the coffee server. Come see us, then judge us, the inscription said.

Our 10 day trip to Morocco was wonderful! We did not know about Morocco when we were planning the trip so we relied heavily on Randie to plan our trip and she did an amazing job.

Our trip was outstanding in every way. The JWMarriott in Lima and the Casa Gangotena in Quito were fantastic choices. Casa Gangotena even prepared breakfast for us before our four am departure ( their suggestion, not our request). Innumerable flights and pickups were smoothly. Our tours in Quito were wonderful with excellent guide and driver to the Middle of the Earth, Colonial District and also, Andes with its markets. I can not say enough nice things about the staff at both our hotels. Randie handled a myriad of logistics beautifully and professionally. Of course, the keystone to the trip was our cruise to the Galapagos. I would highly recommend the ecoventures cruise company. The itinerary, the ship's captain and crew, and the naturalist guides all went out of their way to make our trip wonderful and memorable. We saw every animal and bird there was to see, snorkeled and hiked safely and received a great education. Probably our family's favorite vacation ever, all smiles!

Thanks to Randie we angels expanded our knowledge of Washington, D.C. Randie provided several day options for our weekend in the capitol city, including museums and shops in Alexandria.

Amazing to walk around Lincoln's Memorial at night as well as Martin Luther King's memorial and the Iwo Jima statue. Yes, it was a bit chilly, but our guide was friendly and very informative!

Scandinavian Adventure

Our trip to Sweden and Norway was beyond perfect. Every detail was just right, from the itinerary to suggestions for restaurants and things to do. Our trip packet was extremely organized and easy to read -- it made catching all the trains, planes, ferries and automobiles much easier and less overwhelming. We never even saw a raindrop -- so Randie and our Scandinavia specialist really knew what they were doing! It was a great mother/son trip and we would do it again. We will do it again! Norway truly is the most beautiful country. Our hike in Voss was so memorable. And our champagne welcome basket was such a thoughtful surprise and much appreciated.

Fantastic. I have recommended her to everyone who I know. She heard my needs and responded quickly with excellent choices. We discussed the limitations I had (mostly time /schedule restrictions) and my desires. She worked hard to research all the alternatives and came up with some creative solutions which enabled me to meet all my goals! As I stated in the beginning, I wanted to see the Taj, my 17 year old niece wanted to ride an elephant and see a tiger and when I got home I wanted to know that this was a destination I could check off my bucket list. We got it all done and didn't break the bank in the process. Thank you Randi for a trip of a lifetime!

Randie was recommended by a work associate of my husband's about 4 years ago. This was my third international trip I've booked with Randie, I can not imagine using anyone else.
