Throughout the process, which was quite trying at times as you will see below, he was very responsive and calming and we are very happy with the results. We decided to list our condo at Harbour Place in May 2019 with a view to downsizing. After an initial flurry of positive showings, within a week our building was declared unsafe by the city. Due to problems with the exterior concrete walls on one side of the building, sixteen units were immediately evacuated. With the main entrance closed and not knowing what the future held, we cancelled the listing. Finally, by November, most of the repairs had been completed and the building declared safe. We were able to list again, but at a reduced price as we were facing a large assessment as a result of the building repairs. After only two showings, if I remember correctly, our unit sold at only a bit under our new asking price. We were thrilled to finally be able to move on. On the buying side, Larry and Sigi patiently showed us countless condos. We were very specific in our needs and preferences. We placed offers on three different units along the way but for various reasons they fell through. In the end, Larry helped us find the “perfect-for-us” condo, and we finally moved in early April. Throughout the process, Larry and Sigi were always available, responsive and supportive. We have recommended them to a friend who currently working with them to buy a new home.
We had just started our house search when we dropped into an open house he was hosting. Right away, we felt comfortable that he was ‘our guy’. Soon he was sending us options for our new house, as we readied our current home for sale. Larry’s marketing for our house was amazing. He reached so many people, hosted a busy open house for us and kept us informed every step of the way. He gave us bang-on advice on the market, our pricing and our staging. He expertly managed our offers and other private showings. All of that resulted in a sale to just the right buyer! Then when it came time to find us our forever home in Kingston, he patiently set up showings for us and gave us honest and valuable advice on listings. And thanks to Larry’s strong network in local real estate we found the perfect house. We couldn’t have done it without him. We’re so happy that we found Larry Eastman to help us!
We were drawn to his personality and professional demeanour as he went through the house with us and felt a heartwarming connection with him instantaneously. Our experience with Larry, through a difficult journey for us, was beyond our expectations and personally, above what we have seen others do. He did not hold judgement, he was honest, thorough, accepting, available, and committed to ensuring that our family was able to find a home that met our needs. He never gave up when at times we felt like giving up and were overwhelmed in the market choices. He kept us abreast of new listings, and more often than not, we were the first ones to be able to go see it. He had inspectors available immediately and we did not have to wait at all. The house inspector shared with us that he has worked with many realtors and Larry was indeed the most personable and respectful one he has had the honour to work with. We felt heard...which was the most important thing to us and we felt validated, which eased our anxiety numerous times. We highly recommend Larry as a real estate agent for you. We would even personally welcome your calls to verify our statement and can absolutely guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
He made my first time home buying experience both easy and enjoyable. I love my new home. Thanks, Larry!
His pleasant manner, contacts in the area and willingness to go the extra yard was very helpful, effective and made big decisions less difficult. We would recommend Larry. Oh and we love our new cottage. Many thanks Larry.
Just when things seemed dire, Sigi has the ability to put you at ease. Her confidence and knowledge makes the process less stressful. She is definitely the gal you need on your side when negotiating. As for Larry, he showed us the property and I will say his knowledge of the product he's selling is impeccable. His enthusiasm in showcasing the house is awesome, he answers questions without hesitation but most importantly he's not pushy. He lets the home speak for itself whilst highlighting the positives.
Larry worked tirelessly to help us purchase a house that we will make our home for many years to come.
..I mentioned to B. earlier, that ... I believe you have presented as the best realtor I have ever dealt with...Since I have been buying houses since 1972 and owned numerous rental properties and was married to a real estate lawyer for 26 years before his passing, I think that says something... You are professional, ethical, flexible and most helpful with your advice....we needed that... Thank you so much again...
He was always there to answer any questions we had, gave us first time home buying information, honest and helpful opinions, and he essentially held our hands through the whole process. Larry went above and beyond and we’re so grateful for his help and excellent customer service and knowledge. HIGHLY recommend Larry to anyone looking to buy or sell!!!!
We were amazed at how dedicated he was in helping us buy our first home. Larry made shopping for our first house a very positive experience with his work ethic, positive attitude, and commitment. We are so grateful for Larry and how much support he provided to us, we highly recommend Larry to anyone buying or selling their house.
