Helped me rent a Multi Family home in Anaheim Hills, Anaheim, CA.
I met Larry in the fall of 2013 while I was looking for a rental in the Yorba Linda/ Anaheim Hills area. Larry helped my daughter and me find the perfect place. I appreciated his rental suggestions, his availability to visit properties, and his quick responses to my emails. Larry was professional and attentive. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is interested in selling or renting real estate and would use his services in the future if the need arose.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2009 for approximately $325K in Huntington Beach, CA.
Larry is the utmost professional, trusting, real estate agent. When buying our first home we had many questions. He was always available and helped us through the process. Larry has so much knowledge and is always willing to do what is right for his clients. He is a great negotiator and has his client’s needs in mind first. We highly recommend using Larry for any real estate needs as he is a good man and great realtor.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2012 in Yorba Linda, CA.
I had only lived in Southern California for a little over a year. Larry really helped me find the community that best fit my lifestyle. As a single person I wanted a place with a great room versus a living room & dining room. Larry lead me to some new construction in Yorba Linda/Placentia that fit my requirements (including no Melo Roos Tax). Larry managed the negotiations with the home builder very well and helped me secure my dream house in a great location of Yorba Linda.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 in Yorba Linda, CA.
When I first met Larry Carton I was a 29 years old and a first time buyer. It was near the bottom of the market and it was easier to find distressed properties than a Starbucks. It was June or July of 2010 and I was looking all over northern Orange County, Chino, Chino Hills and Corona for the right place. I wanted a property that would be not just a great place to live, but also a great investment. Larry set me up so that I received listings of properties that fit the criteria that I was looking for. He took me out many times looking at properties on the weekends and after work whenever I was available. When we found the Hills at Yorba Linda I knew we had found the place I wanted. There was just one problem the community I wanted to buy in had been all sold off at the height of the market and now nearly every homeowner was underwater. There was nearly 25% delinquency rate on the HOA dues and the complex was a ghost town. There were tons of properties for sale and the Condo complex was in a highly desirable area. The overall market in the area did not have the high ratio of distressed properties like this complex did, but Larry astutely looked at the market trends and really analyzed the market factors affecting this development and determined that the asking prices between $260,000 and $300,000 were still too high. Around August of 2010 Larry came up with a strategy for us to put offers on multiple short sales in the community after 4-5 months I was opening escrow on a 3 bedroom condo that I purchased for $230,000. This was between $30,000 and $70,000 less than what the banks were originally looking for on these properties. Needless to say Larry ended up finding me a great deal and worked tirelessly for me. I wouldn't consider using anyone else if I had to do it again and will definitely be calling him when I'm ready to buy my next home. He found me a great home and a great investment. Today properties like mine are selling for nearly twice what I paid and I couldn't be happier. Larry made it all possible and I can't thank him enough for his time, patience and dedication to helping me. Thanks Larry!

Bought a home in 2012.
Larry helped us to find a great house for our growing family. He was able to find many properties in the areas we were looking, and surrounding areas, that had what we were looking for. He was responsive, always available and extremely thorough in providing information and the other steps in the process. I am thankful for Larry's services and his professionalism.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $550K in Placentia, CA.
Larry helped us with our purchase in 2009. Larry is very responsive and knowledgeable in the areas we were looking for. We had some specific requirements to buy a house and spent over 6 months looking at numerous properties to fit our requirements. Larry was very patient during our search. We definitely recommend Larry for any real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $425K in Downey, CA.
I needed to sell my late mother's house as part of an estate process. On top of losing my mother a relative was living in the house which complicated the showing and sale of the property. Mr. Carton, who had helped us sell our own house and purchase a condo, was sensitive, kind and very professional. He understood the dynamics of this situation and worked with all of us in a great way. His expertise allowed us to sell the house and move on from this part of our lives and bring closure to the experience. It was done in a very precise and timely manner and we secured a good, fair price for the estate.

Sold a home in 2009.
Larry is knowledgeable and responsive; knows the area well and was very helpful to us in a stressful time. We moved back from Orange to Las Vegas under unexpected and somewhat unpleasant circumstances. Larry made the process much more tolerable with his support and expertise. He made specific suggestions and recommendations as to how to make the property more attractive to buyers, and worked tirelessly to see the transaction through, even though ultimately the sale was completed some time after we returned to Las Vegas. Only one year prior to the sale of this house, Larry had represented us in the initial purchase of this property, and worked long hours finding properties to fit our needs and taking us to see them. In both the purchase and the rather untimely sale of this property, Larry's calm and knowledgeable approach made everything easier for us. We would definitely recommend him to others.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Corona, CA.
We used Larry's services in 2011 to make a home purchase in the Corona area. This was not his typical area but he quickly learned the good from the bad and helped us get the home we were looking for. We highly recommend Mr. Carton for any family looking to make a purchase. Great service, very friendly and I believe he doesn't sleep because he was always working . He was always on his A-game.
