I tend to be a worrier and Larry did a terrific job of defusing my nerves. He did a great job of lining up quality vendors for the various inspections. Our closing had the potential to be a nightmare because of the ineptitude of our lender and Larry took the reins, got them in line, and we ultimately had a smooth closing.
Larry did an amazing job helping us sell our home in Sneads Ferry. We moved overseas in middle of trying to sell our home and the level of service he offered never changed. We highly recommend Larry if you need to buy or sell a home. He will do all he can for you.
If you want the best, look no further than Larry. He brings a whole service package to the table with him. Regardless of the service needed, his local knowledge ensured that we were taken care of at a fair price. His marketing was second to none. Other agents with listings in our neighborhood failed to bring in traffic. We went from listing to the offer we accepted in just a few weeks. His experience and business acumen were brought to bear with an issue our buyer experienced with a VA appraiser. He was able to keep the process moving forward on schedule through closing. Could not be happier with his service or recommend him more highly!
Larry was open and honest from the beginning. He offered suggestions and tips that would helped us to consider things we hadn't. He was patient and willing to let us explore available options. He was helpful and made our process go smoothly. I would highly recommend Larry.
I have no idea what I would have done without Larry’s help. He never gave up on what seemed to be a home that would never sell. But he never gave up on the home or me and help me avoid a possible foreclose. Thanks Larry for all your hard work and for going above and beyond what is required of a realtor.
Larry was absolutely exceptional from our first phone conversation through all the way through to the closing of our dream home! My wife and I were living in San Diego moving to the area and Larry spent months prior to our move learning what we wanted in a home and began building a list for us to see when we came out to the area.
When we finally made it to NC we had two days to see all the homes he had picked for us prior to flying back to California. Larry went above and beyond driving us all over trying to find the right home for us. Once we decided on a house he handled everything administratively since we were already back across the country. It was so easy it almost felt unreal.
Larry's knowledge of the area, his no pressure laid back demeanor, and shear professionalism in finding us a home was beyond what we could have ever asked for or dreamed of receiving from a realtor. I don't want to ever move again but if and when the time comes there is absolutely no question Larry is our guy!
I highly recommend Larry Collins as your real estate professional. Throughout the process Larry kept me informed and worked with me to find the right buyer at the right price. Given the time frame of selling my home, Larry went beyond what a normal real estate professional would do to assist. Larry is very professional, friendly, and honest and will do everything to assist you.
Larry Collins acquired our listing after it had been on the market for about a year. He immediately impressed us with his knowledge of the market and his work ethic. Larry kept us updated on changes in the market and checked in even when there wasn't anything happening. I didn't feel like he just got us to list then show up 6 months later to re-list.
When we went into negotiations and under contract Larry stayed on top of everything and kept me sane with his cool, calm demeanor. While waiting to close on our Beach house Larry helped us find a new place. He never tired of looking at houses and always seemed to know the answers to our questions. He led us through the buying process and we are now enjoying our new home in Hampstead. We highly recommend Larry Collins whether you are buying or selling!
Thank you Kim!
A delight to work with and a true professional. We enjoyed working with Larry. We knew we were priced just right and marketed to a "T"
Larry was highly recommended to us as the very best and this proved so true. We would highly recommend this man of rare integrity and a solid work ethic.
Larry exceeded our expectations in all aspects of buying our first home. His expertise in the details of new construction were invaluable. He was present for all aspects of the process, spanning over 5 months. We could not be more pleased with the ease of this process.
Larry helped us buy our first home! He was very helpful found our house in two days! Closed very early. And went out of his way a lot for us. Even bought us a very thoughtful house wanting gift. Our experience having him as a realtor has been nothing but the best. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking to buy a home!
Larry is the best realtor that I have had the pleasure of working with. He works at your pace and he made me feel like his only client, even though I know he is currently very busy. Larry is also exceptionally knowledgeable in home construction, which is helpful when looking at new construction homes as well as older homes, as he was able to identify and explain certain features that I would have otherwise missed. Where Larry really shines is with negotiations. He got us under contract for almost 10% below list price, and was able to get other perks included like closing costs and home warranty.
Because we were from Connecticut and were selling my son's home in North Carolina because he was leaving the military, we relied heavily on Larry throughout the sale process. Also since the house was valued lower than what it had been purchased for, Larry provided us information on how to handle a short sale and put us in touch with a short sale attorney. We were very pleased with the work Larry did in selling the house. It sold in 8 months time.
Awesome experience he was able to handle a very very difficult short sale that had been unresolved years. The problems were we live in Texas trying to sell a property in North Carolina and upon putting the for sale sign we found the house was sitting on two lots. The other lot was still owned by the developer who to make matters worse had a IRS tax lien on his holdings. As time went by the city also put tax lien for property taxes owned. The HOA also followed suit with their own lien for dues owned. This was what Larry had to navigate and after several failed contracts he was able to short sale last year 2013. Bringing to a close a nightmare that had been haunting my family for five years, and not to mention I never had to travel to North Carolina at any time. He owned the problem and took care of everything for us. We will be for ever greatful to him. His more than a real estate agent.
We are so glad we meet Larry. We were planning to retire and move North Carolina. The area around Topsail Island was our first choice. We met Larry while on a research trip. We drove around for 3 days and lost track of who we talked to. We saw many houses that were great but could not seem to find a house that fit us. We thought about trying another area but loved Topsail. We met another couple who recommended that we call Larry. He met with us the next morning and we new we were back on track. His knowledge of the area was fantastic and at times humorous. After meeting with Larry we decided to custom build. It was an amazing experience. I've heard horror stories about building but Larry was with us every step of the way. We love our new home and I proudly recommend Larry to anyone moving to Topsail
I have worked with Larry on several puchases and he has aways been very professional with his knowledge of the local market. He is always available to answer questions and is very good on follow up after the sale
Larry answers questions honestly, I he doesn't know the answer he follow up with the answer, can't ask for more than that from an agent.
Larry is a friendly and knowledgeable real estate agent. He lives in the area so he knows the place very well. He could be a bit faster but at the same time it doesn't make put pressure on you so that's good.
When he was showing us different properties, he was pointing out the good and bad aspects, so we feel some neutrality, we like that.
Larry is a very personable, honest, and hard working realtor who has helped us in the process of finding a rental, purchasing our first home, and selling our property. He has been an absolute pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him to all our friends who are moving to the area.
