I’ll start with the bottom line: On a scale of 1 to 10 stars, Larry Carmel gets 20, even 30 stars!Background: I began with another real estate team. They did NOTHING for me but list my condo. The photos in the listing were unprofessional and horrible. I cancelled the contract, and God sent me Larry Carmel! What a BLESSING! In contrast to my first real estate team, Larry did EVERYTHING! This guy is a HARD WORKER! He started by cleaning the exterior of my condo, trimming landscape plants and blowing away leaves on the sidewalk (yes, he did it himself), and his wonderful wife (the perfect real estate team ever) displayed her interior decorating expertise by STAGING MY UNIT beautifully. Every time Larry went to my condo, he brought his trimmer and blower to make it look beautiful and inviting for prospective buyers. He even had the nearby stairs cleaned so the entire environment looked beautiful. How THOROUGH is that! The listing included beautiful, PROFESSIONAL photos and a virtual tour of my condo, which I loved. Larry even did additional advertising. In the first week alone, Larry did 2 open houses and a broker caravan. IF I WASN’T SELLING IT, I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT IT! COMMUNICATION is number one for me, and Larry excels at this! He kept me updated daily, and he did it without my asking because it is important to him to keep his clients informed. Many unforeseen problems arose due to my condo property being rezoned to a very high fire hazard severity zone – that’s the cost of living surrounded by nature these days. Larry was DILIGENT in advising me on what needed to be done to overcome these obstacles. We needed a miracle to sell my condo due to this problem. We got it! God delivered us and my condo recently sold. Hallelujah! I thank Larry and his wife, Diane, for representing me, helping me, praying for and with me - and we were blessed. Choosing Larry as your agent means that you will end up wanting to write a review just like mine! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND LARRY CARMEL!
Larry listed my home at the highest price in our community and had an offer within three days with a 14 day close of escrow. His team worked diligently and professionally and handled every detail for a seamless transaction. Larry is personable, tactful and an expert in his field. I highly recommend Larry Carmel to help you sell your home.
As the executor of an estate I needed help selling the home of my client in the Stonehaven community after she passed. I asked for recommendations, interviewed 3 realtors who had been recommended to me and went with Larry Carmel. I am very glad I did. I initially decided on Larry because of his experience in that area and because of his clearly apparent integrity. As we worked together I discovered that Larry is personable, transparent, completely honest, thorough in his communication, very hard working, and relentless in his pursuit of his client's best interest.When the initial "as is" offer on the home was not what we had hoped for, in consultation with Larry and the beneficiaries we made the decision to remodel the home. Larry didn't miss a beat. Although it cost him an enormous amount of additional time and work he did not waiver. Larry was in constant communication with me and with the contractors. He stayed on top of every detail. He didn't let anything slide. He put in long hours and hundreds of miles. I couldn't imagine having to oversee the remodel and the sale without Larry's unwavering assistance.When we were finished with the remodel I was surprised at the offer Larry was able to generate. Even with the market trending down, because of the way he staged the house, because of his knowledge of the area, and because of his many open houses, he was able to get top dollar - and even what seemed to be better than top dollar - for the home. He constantly worked for the best deal for his clients.I can, without reservation, highly recommend Larry Carmel to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home. Be assured that he will work honestly and relentlessly on your.Dave Burdette
