"Randi is my go to person for project work, personal assistance work, editing, etc. Her work is of the highest quality, always within
the deadline, 5 star service. She can sell your house, move your belongings and keep pets happy! Excellent work!"
“Sam has progressed so much as an actor and as a thinker about drama, writing, movement, and empathy by working with Jason!”
"Randi is a life saver. Overwhelmed and lacking time and focus, I invited Randi into my home to help me organize, pack in an orderly fashion, and move to another city, where I would be married and begin a new life. She not only achieved a wealth of mundane tasks with a smile, but found creative ways to save space and use resources. She even stayed to help me assemble wedding invitations! Randi assesses a situation and instantly determines ways to turn chaos to peace. I highly recommend her."
"I needed someone to help market my business, run my website, interface with clients, and keep me focused and on task. That person is Randi Turkin, founder of I Need a Clone. As a portrait painter with a busy studio and an active website (ArtProfiler.com), I was looking for a lot of administrative support. I didn't want someone in my office everyday. I needed an assistant who was extremely organized and who understood my flaky artist personality. Randi turned out to be all those things. How she manages to balance a full roster of clients plus run a household, dance practice, and deal with a toddler, I will never know. She is always cheerful, upbeat and positive, and has turned out to be a great administrator, adviser and friend. I can honestly say I couldn't run Artprofiler without her."

"I would highly recommend Randi Turkin and her business
I Need a Clone. The Long Center for the Performing Arts in Austin has retained Randi numerous times over the past several years to provide assistance with special projects relating to training, human resources, board and administrative functions. Her company's
expertise in providing timely, detailed and innovative results was outstanding."
"Stephanie, that was such a sweet wonderful wedding. It was perfect in every respect. I think Mandy and Julian were really happy, and the way you put it together presented a true picture of the romance between them. My heart was filled with happiness and I know Mandy's Mom's was as well. We are all so grateful to you for producing such a beautiful wedding."
"Lucy needed much more than a pet sitter ~ she needed an adventure! Thank you, I Need A Clone!"

“I had the pleasure of taking a contemporary modern class from Randi. She has a strong sense of timing and fluidity in her choreography which is fresh, innovative and vulnerable. One of the aspects I enjoyed the most about her teaching style is how she can break down the movements and give structure to them when tying the expression to music.”

"I contacted I Need a Clone! Concierge in March to help look after my puppies during a very busy time at work and Miss Turkin was absolutely fabulous. Even though I had to work long hours and in some rather stressful conditions I did not have to worry about Truman or Midge because I knew they were in good hands. Miss Turkin was very professional and I felt confident that the health and well being of Truman and Midge were her first priority. I would not hesitate in the future to contact I Need a clone! Concierge, when I really do need a clone."

"Randi is a godsend! She's organized, capable and trustworthy. I don't need a full time assistant so being able to hire Randi on an hourly basis is an extremely cost effective and efficient way to make sure that everything that needs to be handled gets handled."
"I used I Need a Clone! for a recent trip out of town. I rented out my apartment to two different renters and needed someone to get the place ready for the first renter, quickly turn it over in between renters, and be on call in case emergencies arose while I was out of town. Randi was phenomenal. She communicated clearly and frequently and went above and beyond what I had asked for. I was very far away and was truly able to relax and enjoy my vacation knowing Randi was looking after my home and my renters. She is professional, efficient, affordable, and a joy to work with. I've also hired Randi to look after my dog on multiple occasions and Romeo is always happy to see her. I can't recommend her services highly enough! "

"I contacted I Need a Clone for packing services and I couldn’t have been happier! Stephanie showed up at my door and packed my entire house (including a kitchen with many breakables, gadgets, and cleaning products) in one day! And not a single item was broken during the move! Not only was Stephanie an incredible packer, she helped me let go of items that were not necessary to move to my new home. We could’ve hired the moving company to pack but with Stephanie I received so much more care and attention. She was professional and efficient but also, she was a fun person to spend the day with! As she packed and I came in for breaks from my work, I found out about more of Stephanie’s skills: publication layout and design, event coordination, office administration, just to name a few. I will definitely contact
I Need a Clone for services in the future."
"Shanna was a godsend staging my house for two back-to-back weddings. Far better than a conventional interior designer, she added to and rearranged furniture and the "look" of my house in a creative, innovative yet extremely practical way. She came up with fresh new ideas at a reasonable cost and our house received the facelift it badly needed without my having to guide or direct her. She's quick and really fun to work with. Highly recommended!"
"I have known Randi Turkin for several years now as an employee, teacher, performer and friend. Our paths crossed through dance and not only did she work in my Dancewear store, the Dancer's Den, but was on my faculty at the Shirley McPhail School of Dance. She taught children through adults with ease, energy and lots of TLC! Randi has always been professional, so pleasant to be around and takes the initiative to get things done! She is creative, dependable and has been a pleasure to work with off and on throughout the last 10-12 years or so. I would highly recommend Randi for anything that needs a touch of creativity and organization!"

"I needed something better than a clone (I know my limitations!), so I hired Randi. She checked on my house for the month we were out of town, arranged to have the carpets cleaned, had some electrical work done for me, handled furniture delivery, drove us to and from the airport, and even did a food shopping run for me before we returned. She went through the mail for us and forwarded the important stuff, and basically kept everything humming along so our re-entry to Austin was seamless. Way better than a clone!"
