Mr. Else worked very hard at making sure my home was sold. He was attentive to my needs and made sure that I received the best deal for my property. If you are looking to sale your home be sure to consider him as your realtor.

Thanks Ms Keno! You were very easy to work with and we worked really hard to find the right buyer for your home!
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Van Steuban, Detroit, MI 48205
From a business perspective, I personally had a horrible experience. Started out straight and narrow (at least I thought) turned out to feel in the end manipulated and blatantly lied to without any regard!! As a result of what occurred within me contracting this company to assist me with my property sales, I personally felt like I was being subjected to manipulation on various instances and when I refused to accept what I considered to be a "unjust proposal" is when the business relationship pretty much dissolved down to me dealing with a ill knowledgeable "assistant " instead of Larry himself!! As a result of their disregard for (I ) the customer "From a personal perspective" I certainly wouldn't recommend however good luck to anyone who chooses to utilize their services !!

Thank you for the 5 stars for local knowledge, but I think the other ratings were expressing your frustration in the buyer's failure to perform. Our process expertise, responsiveness, and negotiation skills are second to none. I am equally as frustrated that the buyer did not close. Although I succeed with working my magic and finding solutions in the vast majority of my deals, both you and the buyer were unable to come to terms in the end. However, I did manage to get the buyers to sign a release with you getting the EMD!

Larry is very helpful, will answer your calls and is very prompt and courteous. He also is very knowledgeable about the market conditions in Detroit and will get your home sold at any cost. I will recommend him again for selling as well as buying.

Larry and his team are an outstanding real estate resource. I was continually impressed with his straightforward assessments and recommendations during the process. His initial search and consequent list of properties was nicely tailored to my specifications, and his responses to inquiry were timely and thorough. Without hesitation, I will contact him for any future real estate needs.

I can't speak highly enough of Larry as a realtor. I was a first-time homebuyer moving to a city I knew nothing about alone, and Larry not only made the whole process easy to understand, he also made me feel confident working through each step of the process and making decisions, and I enjoyed working with him. His communication response time is excellent, I never had to hound him for an answer to any question. He offered professional opinions without being pushy or belittling my ideas. He even had lots of savvy ideas about how to write contracts to handle tricky issues such as wanting to close on a house asap, but also make sure it was properly emptied when I took possession. His associate, Angela, was likewise always immediate to respond to anything I asked or needed, and very supportive. I was not expecting buying a house to be such a logistically and emotionally complicated venture, and in every respect, I was so grateful to be working with Larry.
Larry is a great example of what the local real estate culture in the Metro Detroit area should model. As a professional property manager, it is important to work with real estate professionals that will uphold integrity, real estate knowledge and expertise. Larry has mastered each of these. He ranks among the elite when it comes to working with investors both local and overseas. He possesses a thorough knowledge of the market, inventory and can move deals quickly and efficiently. We have a very good working relationship, and I would not hesitate to recommend him and his services to anyone.
My experience with Larry Else proved to be exceptional. His knowledge of the area and information was a tremendous help. He is professional and took the time to explain the process of selling my home. I learned a great deal from him about the market and fully plan to use his services for all of my real estate investments.
If you an out of state investor or simply a local buyer/seller, I would make Larry my one stop shop!
