Real estate transactions are often fraught with minefields for both buyers and sellers. Purchasing a home in as-is condition is one of those things that is poorly understood, especially for new or inexperienced buyers. Listing a home in as-is condition may be of benefit to the seller, but it’s going to cost in terms of […]
Although most real estate agents have the gift of gab, we are actually restricted by law on some subjects. There are some things we cannot talk about due to the Fair Housing Act. Off-limits topics consist mostly of demographical information, but the majority of agents avoid addressing the quality of the local schools as well. […]
It’s every parents favorite time of year, you know what it is, it’s the first day of school. I can’t wait until Monday when I will get up early and run into my kids rooms and start screaming, “First Day of School Baby!” This has been a tradition in our house since kindergarten. My kids […]
“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 first time home buyers that knew what we wanted. Andrew was great. He understood our needs and took all the steps need to accomplish the goal. He walked us through the process and made sure to check with us every step of the way to make sure we were comfortable before processing. He even meet us on a day off to get some paperwork. Thank you Andrew! We love our new home!Nick Kuhn and Andrea Roush Testimonial- Buyer 2014
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
Larry Tollen is unquestionably the best Realtor we have ever dealt with. We live in Minnesota and about a year we started looking for condos in the Durham area. Our daughter and family live in Durham and she found Larry’s website and we followed suit.
Within a few months we arranged an appointment with Larry. From our first meeting we concluded that he was truly a professional, and exhibited a willingness to “go the extra mile”. He was always available to address whatever issues came …

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. Wouldn’t use ANYONE else!Bought a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $225K in Hillsborough, NC.
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 is an excellent agent. He was honest, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. – Thomas Sebanc, Durham 2014Tom Sebanc- Seller
We have bought and sold several homes over the years and Larry is the best realtor we have ever worked with by far. He is a great communicator and is very knowledgeable both in the business of buying and selling property and also in construction.
We are making a move back to Durham. Larry listened to our vision of what our new home might be and helped us identify properties that were likely candidates. As we visited several homes with him, he took note of our likes and dislikes with each visi…Bob and Sheila Testimonial
Larry Tollen is the most professional buyers’ agent that I have had. I’ve had several in my 60 + years. He is smart, personable, and a great negotiator.
