About Larry & his Team:
Why Real Estate?
Larry: I grew up in a bit of a real estate family. My uncle was in real estate and my grandfather founded the MLS in Baltimore. While attending high school in State College and while at Penn State, I interned for KBB. I used to make daily runs to the court house in Bellefonte to pick up deeds and other important documents. After spending five years in accounting for Penn State, I took the plunge into real estate full time in 1994 and have loved it ever since.
Gretchen: I came into real estate business after working in the hospitality industry and sales. I always gravitated towards a service-oriented where the client comes first and their needs a top priority.
Courtney: My parents are Realtors in Hershey, PA and they recruited me to be on their real estate team so that as they moved towards retirement, I could take over their business. And then my husband got a job at PSU and we moved to State College!
What is your favorite thing about your job?
Larry: Every buyer, every seller is a different puzzle. Every day brings a different series of challenges. It gives me great satisfaction assisting people with this very, very important part of their family's lives.
Gretchen: Nowhere better can I help others achieve their goals and fulfill their dreams than through real estate.
Courtney: My favorite thing about real estate is working with first time home buyers. The process of buying a home can be overwhelming if you've never done it before (or even if you have!) and I love being able to put new buyers' minds at ease and help them find a place to call their own.
What is something most people don't know about you?
Larry: I almost died by getting hit in the side of the head with a golf ball! I can hear my "friends" now....."That explains it!"
Gretchen: Winter is my favorite season, just love the crisp cold air.
Courtney: I have a major coffee obsession and you will most always find me with a Dunkin' Donuts coffee in hand, but I only drink decaf!
Larry is Married to Karen, who he met at Penn State Dance Marathon, and have two boys Mitchell (24) & Max (20).
