Sold a Single Family home in 2009 in Durham, NC.
Larry is very professional and detail oriented. He sold a house for me as trustee for a lady in a nursing home. He kept me informed of everything going on and was very good a negotiating even though the eventual buyers was difficult to work with. We got a very good price. He was extremely good.

Sold a home in 2013.
Larry helped my husband and I both buy and sell our home in Durham, and I truly cannot say enough positive things about him.

On the buying side, Larry took me to view many homes, and he quickly grasped what my husband and I were looking for and found lots of great options in our price range. Additionally, Larry knew that we planned to live in the house for only three years (my grad school years), and he was knowledgeable and forthcoming with what he believed each house's resale potential would be. He was also very knowledgeable when it came to home maintenance and potential inspection issues.

When it came time to sell, Larry made the process seamless, despite the fact that we were out of state by the time the house got listed. Even from afar, it was clear that Larry worked hard to market the house, and we were under contract in less than three months. Just as when we bought the house, he was an excellent advocate during negotiations, and he walked us through every step of the closing process.

If you are looking for a real estate agent in the greater Durham/Chapel Hill area, I highly, highly recommend Larry. He is dedicated, professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $275K in Durham, NC.
Larry helped us buy our house 5 years ago. He's unique because he spends more time listening to what you really need and making sure you see the homes you want, rather than giving you the hard sell and talking over you. Larry helped us find our perfect home because he listened to our needs and worked hard to ensure those needs were met. We'd use Larry again anytime and we'd recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell in this area.

Bought a home in 2011.
We first began working with Larry 2 years ago when we thought we were going to move. Because of work circumstances, we ended up waiting until just recently to buy. Larry stayed in touch the whole time, keeping us up to date on everything going on with real estate in our area, but never pressuring us to do anything until we were ready. He is the most knowledgeable, professional realtor I've ever encountered and provides more than you would get from any other realtor. My mother works for a builder and is continually blown away with what he provides for his clients, his level of detail, knowledge of all aspects of the real estate market, etc. I cannot say enough great things about Larry and would never work with anyone else!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Durham, NC.
We would highly recommend Larry Tollen to anyone looking to buy a house in the triangle area. We recently bought a house with him, and he made the process extremely smooth for us. With Larry, you get someone who is knowledgeable about local housing prices and neighborhoods coupled with an exceptional ability to negotiate excellent terms on your behalf. Larry made us feel as if we were his only clients, always replying to questions and concerns quickly and dealing with the selling agent, mortgage company, lawyers, inspectors, and independent contractors for various services to move the process along efficiently. We were never left to deal with any problems on our own; Larry always stepped in and handled them on our behalf. Larry is patient and will show you as many houses as you need to see in order to find the right one; he will not try to sell you something you can't afford. He gives great advice on many aspects of the home buying process. Larry can recommend people for repairs, mortgages, etc...but will never push you to go with someone he recommends. We truly feel like Larry was always looking out for our best interests and will recommend him to our friends and family when they are ready to buy houses.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $150K in Durham, NC.
I was a first time home buyer and was contacted by Larry after reviewing some homes on zillow. Larry is extremely Professional, friendly, knowledgeable, responsive, and overall very accommodating. As I was going through the police academy at the same time as buying i had minimal time to commit to the process. Larry did a lot of work to make sure everything was done in a timely manner, to my satisfaction, and at my convenience. I got a great home for a great price, and would highly recommend him to first time homebuyers and repeat buyers alike.

I'll be in touch. Larry Tollen
