Early in Larry Tollen's real estate career he realized there was only one answer when buying or selling a home. "Money. Sellers want to know how much they can get and buyers want to know how much they're going to have to pay." With over 1,200 transactions throughout his 25-year career, Larry attributes his success to a keen focus on market data, in-depth knowledge of his specialty area, and a strategic approach to pricing.
"I have always been what's commonly referred to as a people-person", says Larry. "The best part of my job is that it satisfies my natural interest in people. Here in the Triangle I am continually fascinated by the people I meet in my day to day business... Read More!
Larry helped me purchase a house in the Durham area. He’s great to work with. He did a good job of communicating with me, and the places he had me consider matched well. He’s not one of those realtors who just points out positive features — he is knowledgable about construction, and if he sees something wrong, he’ll point it out, and that let us quickly reject the poorer houses and spend more time on the good ones. When I had settled on a house, Larry did a very efficient job at lining up the va…Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Durham, NC
“Larry made the selling of our house easier than we could have possibly imagined. We interviewed several agents and decided to go with him because he was knowledgeable about the area, he was easy to work with, and he was very professional. He arranged for amazing pictures to be taken of our house. Larry priced our house perfectly, and we had multiple offers on the first day. He also remained in close contact throughout the process and did a great job managing all of the minor issues that come up…Matt Meier Testimonial
Larry helped me in the search process for my home, and helped me purchase the one I eventually selected. Larry absolutely shines in a number of ways. He worked with me quite well in selecting plausible candidates, respecting my choices and learning from them, and adding some very good ones of his own to the mix. When evaluating homes, Larry is not one of those “Mr. Sunshine” brokers — he was quick to point out flaws, and was quick to walk away when it was clear one of our choices was not a good …

Andrew is a fantastic Realtor. He is engaged and will ensure you see the houses that fit the needs you describe. His communication is outstanding with quick response times and detailed answers to your questions. If there are items that you might be missing he provides insight.
In our experience with Andrew and team we were delighted with the level of detail in the service. From Andrew’s great work to his team’s concierge service we could not be happier with the great work they do.

I would never work with another Realtor. Larry and MyNCHomes are exceptionally knowledgeable and communicative throughout the process. When I thought I might have to pull out of the deal due to my current lease situation, he came up with such a great alternative that my lender was envious, saying, “I wish I had thought of that!” We closed on time with very few hiccups. You will not regret hiring Larry as your Realtor! Anne Aylin – Homebuyer – 2015 – MyNCHomesAnne Aylin - Homebuyer - 2015 - MyNCHomes
Larry Tollen was great! He’s wicked knowledgeable, not only about the areas & neighborhoods… but also mechanical things about the houses, too… He was very patient…( We probably looked at at least 30 houses or so!) he takes notes & actually listens to what you want & will go out there & find it for you! In addition to all of his knowledge & know how, he’s so nice & has a great sense of humor and my daughter & I had a great time going out with him on the house hunt. I would highly recommend Larry …Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Durham, NC

“My wife and I were referred to Larry by some friends of ours who purchased their first home with him. Even considering the glowing recommendation we got from them Larry and the MyNCHomes Team exceeded all our expectations. This was our first experience buying a house and throughout the entire process Larry did a great job of helping us feel educated and confident in our decisions and was not afraid to leverage his expertise and experience to challenge us to look at things from multiple perspect…Corey and Samantha Krafte - Buyers -2015- MyNCHomes
If you want an agent who is straightforward, honest, knowledgeable, and a true advocate for his clients, then Larry is your man. The services he provided prior to listing all the way through closing were invaluable – if you are selling, he will provide a stager, have a professional come in to take measurements and draw an accurate floor plan, have professional pictures taken and virtual tour done, and a professional cleaner come in before closing. Larry is an absolute gem, and if he worked the R…Amber Giles - Home Seller - 2015- MyNCHomes
Andrew helped us find a charming and solid home in Durham, and was exceptionally patient and available to us the entire way through. Our budget wasn’t high, and the house we bought was pretty inexpensive, but we always felt like we were at the top of Andrew’s priority list. He was willing to show us a lot of homes and tolerated our indecisiveness so well, asking questions to understand our needs and reservations, then thoughtfully sharing his opinion without being pushy at all. We were also impr…
