Larry is owner and broker of HOME HUNTERS USA, Inc., a sales and property management real estate company that was established in 1975. After being awarded “SALESMAN of the YEAR” at another real estate firm in the area, Larry was recruited by Home Hunters to start up a sales department for the company in 1979. Later that year, Larry’s wife, Darlene, was recruited by the company to head up the property management division. Her accounting background made her a perfect candidate for the property manager and bookkeeping position. Together, they helped to make Home Hunters USA a leader in property management and investor sales in Lee County, Florida.
In 1995, they purchased the company from the creators. Since then, the company has grown to the point where it has produced millions in property management and sales commissions. Under their leadership, Home Hunters USA survived the Recession favorably and is growing again!
Home Improvement USA, Inc. is their Florida-licensed contractor since 1999. Larry holds the license with the State of Florida. The company does all of the rehabs for the investors that purchase to re-sell or hold and rent, and the “Rental Ready” preparations for the ongoing management of their hundreds of property management rentals (residential and commercial). Larry and Darlene have owned over 50+ residential units and 22,000+ square feet of commercial property. In addition, Larry has SOLD over $200M of real estate in his real estate sales career. He has been a Florida Certified Real Estate Instructor and worked for one of the largest nationwide real estate seminar companies for 14+ years.
Larry is a candidate for the prestigious CCIM designation with the National Association of Realtors. Because Larry’s teaching reflects his 40+ years’ experience in real estate, you can be assured that learning from him is focused on the REAL STUFF! (Been there, done that and got the polo shirt.)
