Which home improvements are the most important? There is a seemingly endless list of potential renovations that any home could use, but only a small set of them really make sense in most cases. As I say about any major decision about your home, it all starts with thinking clearly about your long-term plans for […]
Housing options for older adults are plentiful these days, thanks in part to a number of advances in technology. The aging population has created a huge swell in demand for universal design. Contrary to popular belief, accessible homes are not just for handicapped or disabled individuals. Newer construction is trending toward greater flexibility and adaptability. […]

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!
We were just moving into this area from out of state. Larry was GREAT in getting us the best possible deal on our home and also advised us on how to take care of it with maintenance suggestions. Since we are not from here, we call Larry to find out who to call for service on our current home. He knows good and reputable contractors and service people whom all have done an excellent quality job on our home. Larry is GREAT, BEFORE, DURING and AFTER the sale of your home.

We doubled down with Larry in the winter of 2012 to sell our home and help buy a replacement. From the first phone call it was clear Larry was upfront and engaged which continued until both deals were closed and signed. Most impressive was his bead on market value and costs. He could dig up data to back it all up. Aside from his online skills he brings experience beyond the natural negotiating needs for the very practical needs you have as a homeowner. Sellers looking to market a home benefit fr…Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Durham, NC

Larry Tollen was great!

“Larry made the selling of our house easier than we could have possibly imagined.

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.

“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.

As first time home buyers with a limited budget, we were in need of a Realtor who would be patient and willing to explain the process to us, and Larry met our needs and exceeded our expectations. Working with Larry was a pleasure, and his reassurances and suggestions were immensely valuable throughout this process. During viewings, Larry would point out all manner of things (while we were walking around doing the emotional assessment, he was busy looking for potential financial pitfalls: “Guys, …

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
“As a first-time home-buyer, new to the area, Larry was a lucky find for us. He is pragmatic, detail-oriented, professional and efficient, all while having patience and a healthy sense of humor on top. I did most of the finding of homes to visit, but as soon as we got to a property, Larry sprung into action, evaluating structural details, age of roof, HVAC, etc., so that there were no surprises later. He was very thoughtful in crafting an offer letter, concrete and practical during negotiations,…Marisa Escolar Testimonial
We were prepared to move in early summer, During the late spring we contacted Larry Tollen and Andrew Palumbo. As a result of meeting with them, we were given a game plan for staging our house, pricing and timing. We followed their recommendations and five days after our house was listed, it was sold. To you prospective sellers, get in contact with Andrew and do what he says. You’ll be very happy.
