Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $550K in Stone Ridge, NY.
I worked with Larry in the first half of 2012 to purchase a weekend house in Ulster County and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Hudson Valley. From the first phone call, Larry seemed different than other brokers I had interviewed and that remained true for the entire process, which culminated in me buying the perfect the house in the middle of my price range.

Larry had deep knowledge of the Hudson Valley market and was very effective at educating me on the differences between various towns and counties and he was more than willing to invest the time required for me to get familiar with the different areas. Larry spent a lot of time trying to understand the features that were important to me and then showed me numerous houses that were consistent with what I wanted rather than just showing inventory he wanted to sell. While visiting various properties, Larry offered good advice and balanced feedback on each property and was more interested in playing devil’s advocate to make sure I was well informed than he was in just getting a deal closed. In the end, I enjoyed working with Larry and am very happy with the purchase.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $175K in Saugerties, NY.
We had just returned from San Francisco after having successfully sold a property through Sotheby's International. We were delighted and grateful beyond belief to have found Larry in Woodstock who very expeditiously helped us find the perfect home in the area into which we wanted our family to settle permanently.

Our delight and gratitude was further enhanced after having had the unfortunate displeasure of dealing with some rather dubious, pushy realtor-types in ill-fitting suits and polyester smiles who were, in essence, wasting our time by showing us property after property that didn't even remotely suit our needs or desires. It was clear that they were simply trying to 'unload' whatever properties they had 'available' with no regard for our specifications or requirements. They were overly-eager and quite useless. It was frustrating and insulting.

And then we found Larry!

Larry demonstrated not only his expertise knowledge of the area and of real estate, but showed us that he was very much in tune to what we were looking for and that he was 100% committed to showing us 'homes' that would best suit both our aesthetic and practical needs. Not to mention the fact that it was a genuine pleasure to spend so much time with him -- as finding a home doesn't happen overnight... -- and his personality and sense of humor made the stressful task of finding a perfect home so much more fun.

Larry knows his stuff, knows when to exercise reserve and when to step in with insight based on his experience as a realtor who's been in the business for quite some time, and possesses an intuitive quality that makes you feel you're in competent hands with ears that listen. Not to mention the patience of a saint for putting up with us...

We went from introductions and handshakes to closing in 3 months. And we couldn't be happier in our new home!

Thank you Larry!

Sold a home in 2012.
We worked with Larry in 2011 and 2012. Larry was instrumental in getting our home sold. The deal was complex and I can honestly say that without his efforts the deal would not have come to fruition. Through the process of listing and showing Larry worked extremely hard holding many open houses and marketing the home throughout the area and NYC. His communication and responsiveness was second-to-none in terms of agents we have dealt with in the past. He provided sound advice. I would highly recommend Larry if you are interested in the area or serious about selling your home.

Bought a home in 2011.
Larry helped us find and purchase a weekend home in Woodstock, NY in 2011. He listened to our wants/needs and ultimately helped us find the perfect home for us. His knowledge of Woodstock and the area made the purchase process simple, particularly since we live in New York City most of the time. His assessment of each of the individual properties we looked at was tremendously helpful. He helped us negotiate an offer, despite the fact that he was on "vacation" and answered lots of questions that new-to-country-life people like us might have (who picks up the garbage? how do you get propane tanks for heat filled? etc.) I would use him again if we're buying another house in the area, and would highly recommend him.

Sold a home in 2009.
I have worked with Mr. O'Toole on and off for the last eight years and through that time I have found him trustworthy, ethical, diligent, effective. He has a great deal of knowledge of the immediate and greater market and is attentive and available to confer on a moment's notice. I feel that my properties have been well represented and marketed, and without hesitation would recommend him to others looking to sell.
