When I was planning to transfer into the DC area, I searched the internet for
available housing. I quickly realized I needed help, since I wasn't sure
whether to live in MD, VA or the District. I found Realty Direct, and they
asked Larry to contact me. He was just like all the people I dealt with in
the office: genuine, caring, professional, and above all, not pushy. I gave
him the impossible task of helping me find a place that met all my criteria,
at an absurdly low price. He came through, and I could not be happier
with the little condo he found for me in Rosslyn, two blocks from the Metro,
walking distance to great restaurants, the pharmacy and a grocery store, at a
price below what I was prepared to pay. Through the experience of buying my
place, I came to meet Larry's family, even a few of his in-laws, who all
conspired to make me feel very welcome to the area. I never imagined how
much I'd enjoy living in the city, with unparalleled access to entertainment,
parks, jogging and biking paths, mass transit, and all the aspects of culture
offered by proximity to the Nation's capital. Let Larry Craven help you too;
you won't be disappointed.
We were referred to Larry Craven by a friend who said he knew the area where we were relocating. Larry contacted us by email to get an idea of what we were looking for in housing, neighborhoods, and price range. He understood our needs well, arranged to meet us on short notice, and had several options prepared. One of the options fit our needs well. It was in area that we had not thought to look into on our own. We really appreciate that Larry has kept in contact with us as we plan our move. We will certainly call him anytime we need the services of a realtor in the future.
