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
“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
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. He was always accessible, answering my phone and email inquires quickly. He is a committed professional. I highly recommend him.Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K 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 …

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
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
A great experience using Larry as our buyers’ agent. We were new to the triangle and Larry came highly recommended to us. His depth of knowledge made our home buying experience a very smooth one.Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Durham, NC
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
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.
