Our family had used Larry in an Estate home sale and he performed fantastic.
When we needed an agent to help us buy a condo, we chose Larry and were very pleased with the result. Once we picked the property, Larry steered us easily thru the negotiations part and we came to an agreement with the seller. Larry assisted us with the legal part and answered any questions we had. The purchase went as well as it possibly could. We recommend him to anyone who wants to buy or sell a property.
Larry is such an outstanding realtor.
I first met Larry 10 years ago in my search for my very first property. I was young, energetic and probably willing to buy the first thing I saw. Larry calmed me down, went over my needs and wants list and helped me to find the perfect place. He educated me on condos, townhomes, attached and detached houses and the benefits of each. He showed me areas, amenities important to me and made me feel comfortable with the decision. When it came time to offer, Larry handled the negotiations seamlessly. Fast forward 7 years and it came time to move out of my first place and get something a little larger and suited for my life now. Larry again went out of his way to set my expectations on market value and the selling process and followed through with confidence. We then started looking for my next home and with the help of Sherry, every box I checked got met and with an incredible amount of patience. I purchased another beautiful property through Larry and couldn’t be happier. When it comes time again, I will have no hesitation in calling Larry again! If you need a Realtor who is all about his clients and incredibly dedicated and knowledgeable, call Larry - you won’t regret it.
We have had a wonderful selling and buying experience with Larry.
His approachable manner, quick communication and knowledge of the Calgary market have been a real asset throughout the process. We consider ourselves lifetime customers and cannot say enough good things about our experience and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Larry Normandeau has been a very honest, professional, knowledgeable realtor.
Over the past 14 years has helped myself and my family sell and purchase homes in and around Calgary. Our last home, we were away and Larry did a video chat and walked us threw the house, which for us was perfect... we flew home and purchased the house 2 days later and then put our other home on the market and sold it in a couple of days. Selling homes is what he does, and he is outstanding at his job. Anyone would be fortunate to have Larry represent you.
Larry did a great job for us.
We were on a tight time line moving to Calgary from a different market. We were able to see numerous listings in our price range and once we made our decision, he negotiated an extremely good deal for us. Larry also set up good contractor to finish our basement and do the fencing to complete the back yard. Very prompt at dealing with any of our concerns with us not being in the province.
Over my lifetime I have purchased 11 homes and sold 10.
That has provided me with what I consider as a reasonable amount of experience with the process. It has also exposed me to a lot of different realtors. I have learned that they are NOT anywhere near equal. The level of market knowledge, market reach, ability to close the deal, customer service and over all professionalism varies greatly. After 9 homes purchased and 8 homes sold with just as many realtors involved. I was still looking for a realtor that met my standards and results driven approach to life. That is when Larry Normandeau was recommended to me. Wow… what a great find. Larry has now sold 2 homes for me and put me in 2. I would not even consider calling anyone else. Larry is a very personable, no nonsense guy with great communications skills, who knows how to prepare, price and market a home so it will sell in a reasonable amount of time without giving it away. He is just as skilled on the purchase side too. I have always been more than pleased with the price Larry was able to negotiate when selling and purchasing. Larry has exceeded my expectations on all levels. You cannot go wrong working with him.
Larry did an excellent job in selling our townhouse in a market that was very much based on the buyers side of things.
Although we would have like a higher sales price, we were also in the position that we needed a quick sale. Larry was able to get the price we had expected to receive and was excellent in getting all the necessary documentation completed. The sale closed within the time frame we were looking for. This is the second time we have used Larry in selling a property for us and if required, we would use him if we have any more transactions to be done and would recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent real estate agent.
Larry was incredibly helpful with the sale of our house in a very difficult market.
His knowledge and experience helped to calm our fears about this sale. Our situation, unfortunately, turned out to be a difficult one as the buyers attempted to pull out of the deal on the day of possession after all paperwork and contracts were signed. They were eventually forced by legal means to fulfill the contract. Larry, being the consummate professional that he is, went above and beyond normal expectations of a realtor in this situation, and made himself completely available to our legal team. He communicated with us daily, responding immediately to any concerns we had. We would not hesitate to recommend Larry to anyone trying to sell their home, as we’ve used him twice now, and have been happy with the results each time. This market is tough on those trying to sell their home, and those in the industry, but with someone like Larry to guide you, it makes it easier.
As first time home buyers, Larry was our saving grace.
After a previous poor experience with an inexperienced realtor, we had almost given up hope on buying a home. After meeting Larry, we quickly knew he was "our guy" and trusted that he'd have us in our dream home in no time. Larry was so great to work with and always made us feel he had our best interests at heart. Larry was always on time (usually early!), communicated promptly and professionally, and always gave great advice on the properties we were viewing. Larry is very honest, trustworthy, and knowledgeable about homes in all aspects - from proper building structure and code, to how to spot quality renovations versus DIY disasters and the current trends in the ever-changing Calgary market. Larry was always enthusiastic, and helped us purchase our dream home while dealing with a tricky and stubborn seller. He negotiated things into our final contract that we didn't even think of asking for, based on the home inspection. Larry has an eye for details - and he doesn't miss anything! I would trust Larry with absolutely any real estate deal in the future, and will recommend him to absolutely everyone. Larry is also very LGBT friendly and supportive, and never made my wife or I feel like we deserved anything less than the best service possible. Thank you Larry for finding us our dream home!
Definitely recommend to anyone who is in buyer's market or seller's market.
Larry and his team will be your best bet. With his professionalism and outstanding work ethics, your investments and return will be maximized.
Larry was very knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly.
Our home sold right away over listing price with multiple offers. From our home evaluation to listing and selling Larry was readily available and made the whole process easy and streamlined.
Larry was fantastic to work with.
He was on time, offered excellent advice, listened and proposed alternatives (needed to be given the authority by us to do so which was very professional in my opinion) where it was needed. He laid out the plans and executed them flawlessly. I like to consider myself very quick to respond and expect the same - Larry did not disappoint. Since we were on a very tight schedule, he had his assistant drive the car which freed him up to talk, execute plans, make any last-minute changes etc. - but also showed his attention to detail and ensure he gave my wife and I his full attention. This worked beautifully. Larry knew the areas like the back of his hand so we didn't waste any time with directions. He listened acutely to the discussions my wife and I had with respect to our wants/needs/likes/dislikes and very quickly and easily narrowed the options. Since we had >30 houses to view, his coaching on how to discard/keep choices was instrumental in helping us make a decision. An area I would have appreciated a bit more guidance was preparing the offer - was not a big deal but this would have given a unanimous rating of 5 across the board. Bottom line - I would highly recommend Larry for anyone relocating to Calgary. I would not give it a second thought. Best Realtor experience I've had (and I've had a lot).
Trust, knowledge, and professionalism.
We think of those three things when we think of our experience partnering with Larry. Trust comes first because that is the most important factor, for us, when working with anyone to sell our home and in finding a new home. Allowing Larry access to our home to sell it, to show it, and to ensure it was kept secure was great. Trusting in Larry that he held our interests at heart and we were a top priority was evident. Larry's knowledge of how to sell and where to buy was awesome. He would provide us with all the information we needed to make informed decisions. From the moment we started our partnership in finding a new home and then selling our current home, Larry was always professional. Every single time we communicated, Larry was outstanding in his discipline and kept a positive demeanor. Sometimes it's not easy because emotions are involved; but with Larry we knew we were being protected and represented as valuable clients. We were encouraged to share our feedback. We felt like we came first. We felt like we were in a true partnership in buying and selling. Even during the legal paperwork afterward Larry gave great advice and helped walk us through the necessary steps. He would check up on us to ensure things were going well. Larry stays with you until months after the purchase and sale. He is the expert in this field. He is our guy!

Larry is a fantastic realtor.
He really gets to know his clients and what they want from a house. He made buying a house a very easy process compared to our previous realtor. He was always able to meet us when we were available. His negotiation skills are incredible. He got a tough seller to agree to our offer, but he didn’t stop there. He renegotiated to have the seller complete a few minor repairs on the house before we move in. 10/10!!! Larry’s the best!
It was the easiest house sale that I ever had been involved in.
I got more money for the house then I expected. Larry is a very good realtor.
Larry Normandeau was amazing throughout the whole process of selling our two houses and the purchase of our dream home.
We couldn't have achieved what we did without him. His patience, persistency and drive throughout the whole process was remarkable. We will always head to Larry when it come to real estate. We thank you!
Larry was a true professional.
He gave us a direct and honest home evaluation, answered all of our questions & educated us on the process, hired an amazing photographer, and put together a listing which stood out in the best way possible. As a result, we had an offer after only 2 days on the market! When it came to negotiating with the buyers - Larry's expertise was highlighted as he was very strategic and was able to close the deal quickly and very much in our favor. We had a firm sale after only a few weeks on the market! In addition, Larry was always available to take our calls/texts and always responded right away no matter what time we contacted him. He truly made a potentially difficult sale (in a hard market) so easy and stress free for us!
Working with Larry Normandeau was an amazing experience.
Selling and buying your home after 34 years is an arduous experience for anyone. From the beginning to the end of this journey Larry was so professional as he explained every aspect of this journey as we went through it in detail. There was never any time we could not reach Larry. He answered every phone call or text so quickly. He patiently guided us through this process. Result we sold our home in 6 weeks and he found us a new home we love 3 weeks later. He is very professional and knowledgeable a we were so fortunate to have found him.
As 2nd time home buyers but new to the community & province Larry was incredibly professional and supportive through the entire home buying process.
In an industry where TRUST and INTEGRITY are essential we can truly say that we 100% trusted Larry because of his honesty and dedication he put into his job and role as a realtor. When our home buying process faced challenges caused by the poor integrity, communication and lack of professionalism by another realtor, Larry went above and beyond to not only communicate to us how things should progress but he also protected our interests when we needed it the most. We were purchasing our property while living in another province so had a very short time frame in selection and offering on a property. Larry & Sherry through the whole process were 100% incredibly reliable, honest and trustworthy. In an industry like real - estate there are a lot of shady characters out there that you wonder if they are actually being truthful to you and have your best interest in mind, where we had full confidence in what Larry and Sherry presented to us and how they conducted their business!
Larry showed us that he was a very well-seasoned professional, with a variety of purchasing strategies he has honed over the years.
He showed us a variety of condos and townhomes we researched and his assistant researched some others that matched what we were looking for. We selected an inner-city apartment/condo that met our needs. Larry was very good at negotiating the purchase price and subsequently a further reduction on the purchase price based on the findings of the condo review. He was always available when we called or texted, and if he was tied up on a call he would phone back right away. It was a very good experience and we would highly recommend Larry as a realtor for any seller or purchaser.
