We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Darkesville, Inwood, WV 25428
On May 15, 2013, I met with Mr. DeMarco and he agreed to list my home. We were supposed to meet on May 21st to sign the paperwork, but he missed our appoinment. When I reached out, he said he had tried to call me (although I had no missed calls), and we rescheduled for the following day. Once again, he was a no show, and I never received one call or email (to this day I have never heard a word from him). Wish he had at least done me the courtesy of letting me know if he changed his mind about my listing. Seemed like a very nice guy, apparently others have had wonderful experiences, just wanted to share mine.

Regretfully the above statement is true. At this time in May, I had an Agent on my Team with Medical issues and our Team was also overwhelmed with a huge increase in Spring Business. I had forgot this appointment and once remembered, it was way too late. I apologize to this client and have taken measures to make sure this does not happen again.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Falling Waters, WV.
My husband and I were first time home buyers and had no idea where to start with the whole process. A friend recommended Larry because he had helped her sell her house, so we called him. From the beginning he was friendly, knowledgeable, and really helpful. He referred us to our mortgage lender (Dana DeGrave with Acacia) who was great also. We were not the easiest buyers to work with and had very particular things we were looking for, with a limited budget. The whole process took way longer than we expected (5 months) and there were many times that we were ready to give up, but Larry kept reminding us "There's always another house". After 4 failed offers, we finally found our house, and we could not be happier with it. Larry, and his associates, worked days, nights, weekends, anything needed to get us our house. There was always someone available if he was out of town. He spent so much time with us over those 5 months, we all became friends, and got to know each other. We highly recommend Larry DeMarco for anyone buying or selling their home.

Really? I got paid for this? They were a fun couple to work with!
As a first time home buyer scared to death, Larry and his staff took really good care of me. In my moments of "what's next," they explained what to expect and even helped along the way with the unexpected. Larry helped put me and my family in the perfect first home for us! Thank you again!
The experience working with Larry was wonderful. He made the whole house buying experience easy and stress-free. His knowledge regarding real estate is very impressive. He makes you feel very comfortable and goes above and beyond in finding you a house that meets your needs and wants. Larry would definetly be the first realtor I would call if I ever decided to buy or sell in the future. I would highly recommend Larry to anyone and would trust that they would get the same treatment we did.
Larry and team were top-notch from the beginning of the buying experience to the end! We were looking for our retirement home and I had a list of "must-haves" a mile long. Larry took the time to get to know me and to really familiarize himself with what we were looking for. Even when I waffled back and forth between buying land and building or purchasing an existing home, Larry and team were helpful throughout it all. I would highly recommend these real estate professionals - as a matter of fact, I already have on several occassions!
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Martinsburg, WV.
Larry DeMarco is the best real estate agent that I have worked with. Over the years I have bought and sold several properties, and I have had some good agents, but not like Larry. Because I was an out of state seller, I never met Larry in person, yet he kept all his promises to me.
First, he kept me informed about the interest in my house. He advocated for me when I became frustrated. He handled my concerns. Larry arranged the inspections and went above and beyond his duties when I said I was not putting out any more money. He figured it out. He negotiated. Larry made it happen. I am a satisfied seller, and we have happy buyers. What could be better than that?
I was very pleased with Mr. DeMarco and his associates. My career often requires me to relocate and I never look forward to house hunting and a move. The associates at Mr. Demarco's Reality Group made it an easy and enjoyable experience. I felt very comfortable with Agent Victoria, who put me and the needs of my family, her top priority. Thanks!

We are lucky to have Victoria as an agent. Thanks for the comment!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Kearneysville, WV.
We live in upstate NY and wanted to buy a retirement home in WV, we tried by ourselves to find a place on line and made a trip south. that didnt work out so well! Larry was recommended by my sister in law who had heard good things about Larry & his team. I contacted Larry and made plans to head south again, Larry was patient with us and spent the whole day traveling all over the eastern panhandle looking for the perfect house. We didnt find it on the 1st trip, however 2 weeks later we made our 2nd trip and there it was our perfect house! Larry went above and beyond the duties of a real estate agent from start to finish he was always there for us day or night! He always answered our numerous phone calls and emails and was always there to calm us down. From start to finish the whole process took less than 3 months! Larry & his team are the best!! We didnt just get a real estate agent we also made a new friend! I would reccomend Larry to friends and family with no hesitation!
When we decided to put our house on the market, REMAX was our choice. Larry DeMarco was whom we chose for our agent.We were extremely pleased with our choice. Larry' s professionalism and personality were noticed right away. He gave us good suggestions to help make the house look good and was very honest with his suggestions with what not to do in a respectful way. His communications with us was beyond expectations and he was available when ever we needed him. He handled the inspections and closing preparations so we had no stress in that area. We would recommend him to anyone for the selling of their home.
Found a tenant for a Townhouse home in Hedgesville, WV.
I have worked with Larry for the past 12 years in this industry. His longevity in the real estate market and his loyalty to the Eastern Panhand of West Virignia make him a local expert! He employs a skillful team of agents who coordinate a smooth transaction whether buying or selling. His support staff with ReMax matches no other in our area. Larry is a seasoned agent who is highly respected almonst his peers. This is essential asset to posses during the negotation phase of a real estate contract.
