Larry and Kress are an amazing duo of realtors. They came highly recommended to us by several of our friends who had used their services years ago, and we absolutely recommend them. We have been very happy with their friendliness, experience, thoroughness, communicativeness, and their ability to stay on top of all the paperwork and process management. They made what can be a stressful and frenetic process as smooth and enjoyable as possible. There are a lot of realtors out there, but you want to work with the ones that are communicative, responsive, and have your interests in mind. Kress and Larry are a really fantastic team of realtors, and we can’t recommend them highly enough.
Larry and Kress are a dream team! In advance of our cross-country move for a job transition, we began looking for homes in the Lamorinda area while still living in NYC. With very little knowledge of the East Bay and very limited time to look for homes, we knew we needed a realtor with deepknowledge of the area and a willingness to step in as our local advocate. Larry & Kress provided invaluable guidance and support every step of the way, and they continuously exceeded our expectations with their kind, knowledgeable and committed approach to helping us find our home. We could not have asked for a smoother experience or a better team!
Larry and Kress were recommended to my husband and me by a Los Angeles neighbor who’d moved north to Rossmoor. We were looking to move from LA also, to be nearer our daughter & granddaughter. Larry and Kress hung in there with us as we searched for over a year for the right house. They educated us about neighborhoods, property values, climate, community, walkability, etc, etc. With expertise and skill, they helped us pick a reasonable price for our bid, sealed the deal and followed through with a terrific rolodex of inspectors, plumbers, electricians, and roofers – all of them top notch and reasonably priced.
We strongly believe that we would not have the house we have were it not for Kress and Larry’s nuanced negotiation skills, superior knowledge of the field, sensitivity to our needs and a clear passion for meeting high expectations.
Our experience with Kress and Larry was fantastic. They were always available and responsive, which is so important. We trust them and they were able to find us our dream home! We highly recommend them!
Finally, there were lots of little extra things they did that really went above and beyond… You obviously took great pride in going the extra mile for your clients.
They gave us excellent service in all respects, promptly answering our calls and addressing our concerns. We would recommend Larry and Kress to friends and family.
Larry & Kress are honest, reasonable, and supportive. Having an agent with their calm and thoughtful personalities, along with their expertise, helped make the process of selling my condo a breeze. From the beautiful brochures to the daily updates, Larry and Kress went above and beyond my expectations.
