Larry helped my wife and I buy our first house when we were having a baby back in 2007. He was a pleasure to work with and was very accommodating with our schedules when were were looking at homes. We were having a hard time with the builder of the spec house we bought going down on price so Larry with his building experience suggested we ask for something else instead. The only thing we really were missing on the house we loved was a screened porch. So instead of trying to barter the sale price down a lot we settled on a $5,000 decrease in list price and a screened in porch and deck built on new before closing which would have like cost us $15,000 from a private contractor after moving in. So we got the deal and the great porch we wanted thanks to Larry. A few years later I needed to sell my Mother's home in Durham and after such a great experience with Larry I couldn't think of a better listing agent. The market has been tough for sellers but Larry was patient and insightful in helping me get my property sold for a good price. He is always available and easy to get a hold of. He was always sending me emails in the early morning hours often solving problems and fixing issues before I even woke up for the day. I swear this guy works all the time. As far as real estate agents go I would certainly recommend Larry Tollen for a great house buying or selling experience.
