What Buyers Have to Say...

Just wanted to thank you so much for everything again, I am glad everything went smoothly...

... when we get through moving in, you will have to come take a look. Will keep in touch, and will definitely send people your way, you've been really great.  Thanks!  




...patience, professionalism, personality, sense of humor, and his efforts to really understand what we wanted. The personal attention and the sincere desire to find us the perfect home…providing an experience that sets a new standard of professionalism.

Fred and Cecilia


Our experience...has been like none other...untiring effort in succeeding to enable us to buy our first home in Florida. (We love it.) to connect and stand by us in what turned out to be a difficult purchase - we want you to know how much we appreciate...

Len and Eileen

Thank you so much for all of the work you did recently involving our home purchase. We never would have found the property without you and we probably wouldn’t have been able to close within the contract deadline if you had not been so diligent. I don’t see how you stay so calm and organized during the chaos that sometimes comes with home purchase/closing. I also want to thank you for the beautiful gift basket. You should have received a gift from me not the other way around? You will definitely be called if I ever need the services of a realtor again!


... a good feel and understanding for the type of home I was looking for. I liked his friendliness and calm disposition. He made himself available immediately… individual and personal attention, always patient with questions and long distance arrangements. He worked very quickly given our limited time constraints. Helpful, cooperative, willing to assist with long distance move-in preparations. Trustworthy, patient with buyers’ anxiety, fears, reassuring. Familiar with Ormond amenities.

Cindy and Fred

He was always on time (before time) for appointments. He had a good knowledge of what was selling in the area. He came to our appointments armed with the facts-he was courteous, clean cut and well dressed “Florida style”. I was in the real estate business for 30 years and had my own company for 20 years. He’s the kind of young man I would have been delighted to have represent my company.

P.S. We love the condo.

Larry does not use pressure or force a sale-his patience-honesty-trustworthy-courteous-dependable-professionalism-allows a person to make their own decision in choosing a home. Larry has been consistent and made available to us various properties listed for the past 3 years-given freely of his time-is considerate-goes out of his way to assist an accommodate you-answers all questions to your satisfaction. They make you feel comfortable in dealings – Very nice personalities – Professional and precise – Truthful – Will assist you and give good advice – Do not use pressure tactics – Reliable – Explain in detail contracts and settlements – Dedicated to their profession with honesty.

Sam and Lorraine

I found him to be personable, & stuck with us, even when our plans changed. I found the experience to be excellent. I enjoyed working with Larry over the last year and a half. He offered a lot of insight… He was great to work with.

Jim & Lori

We discovered Larry on the internet. He seemed to take a personal interest in our situation and gave us valuable opinions and info. Larry was informative and helpful but not “pushy”. All problems were handled in a speedy manner.

Charles and Annette

Larry directed me to this property I wanted to see. I told him what I wanted and he delivered.

Kenneth and Brenda

I can say without reservation however, that our experience with Larry LaGrotta was fine in all respects. He was acting on behalf of the sellers… in Plantation Bay. We were the buyers, but his actions were most helpful and contributed to our eventual decision to buy the property. He was most helpful in ensuring that we got to view the property as much as we wanted to and helpful in our decision making process.  In addition, he was most courteous, well dressed and well spoken. In short, a fine representative. We would not hesitate to do business with your company in the future.


It was a pleasure working with Larry. He did a great job. Many thanks.


What Sellers Have to Say...

I just finished Freakonomics. It trashes realtors. None of the traits discussed in the book applies to you. That was incredibly impressive and reassuring.

Robert and Teresa

Way beyond excellence!


You sold our home in a more than reasonable time-you were able to find a buyer for our asking price and you were there with us every step of the way! We truly appreciated your care and concern of our questions! You never kept us waiting on any of our questions! All of your staff were wonderful too! Above and beyond service all the way! Outstanding-excellent - could not have been better!

Neil and Anna

Great Job!

Kenneth and Janet

(What was most valuable was) …working with us on showings “around our schedule” and always calling ahead for approval.

Dennis and Peggy

Keeping us informed. We really felt you were looking out for our interest and did not try to force us into backing down on items we were not comfortable with.


Just a note to thank you for all your efforts on our behalf in the sale of our home at 1225 Gamble Place. We recognize that, without the personal qualities that you possess, that sale would not have taken place as it did! We wish you much success in the future and look forward to working with you again. Thank you!!! 

Paul & Jan

Got our house sold in under two months, when other listing Realtor couldn’t. You were great. We think you being there every showing—no lockbox—was the difference.

Walter and Connie

Just very professional in ALL ways: marketing, follow through, follow up after sale with closing statement for taxes, etc.

Arvid and Marlys


Brian and Sheila

Very efficient, cooperative and professional.

Terry and Janet


We were impressed by the repeated cards & notices of sales & listings over a long period of time. When we decided to sell, we naturally thought of you first. You were always responsive, knowledgeable and in touch with us. Sold our house in a week! Thanks again for a great job. We will always treasure the fantastic photos Larry took of our home. Best of success to you.

Farrell & Brenda

We would not hesitate to do business with your company in the future.



We had our house listed with two different Realty Companies for a period of approximately two years before we decided to list our house. Within 4 months our house was not only sold, but the closing was held and everything was completed that day. During the time our house was on the market, each time the house was showed (and it was showed many, many times) Larry was there. This meant a lot to me because I felt better knowing someone was there who cared about the property and how it was left. We were very well pleased at the way the property was presented, the ads in different real estate.books and in general the work that was done in order to present the house so people would be interested.  We were very pleased at the work Larry put into this and would recommend him to anyone who is planning to buy or sell a house.

Yours truly,

Harry & Betty

I was most pleased. Larry is “first class” and my house was sold in record time. He knows the value of property better than the “experts” [appraisers] and follow through with outstanding advertisements and salesmanship.

Thank you, Jim

We found Larry to be the most professional Realtor we could have asked for.  Larry was present at every showing of the property and presented the home in an outstanding manner. Additionally, he was present at inspections or other events related to the home sale. He completely fulfilled all promises with regard to marketing and advertising. I would recommend him without reservation.


They are the BEST!!!


Strong marketing approach –
Good communication.

Tom & Mary Ann
