  • Larry listed and sold my home

      Larry was awesome to work with. I moved 3 states away and had to do everything remotely and he made the process so easy. He remained positive despite many hurdles and never let me worry about anything. 10/10 would recommend 100% of the time.

        From beginning to end it was a very positive experience working with such a knowledgeable Agent as Larry. He was always on time for appointments and negotiated a sales price above asking.

        - Jordan Hendrickson - Maple Heights, OH
      • Worked really hard to make a deal that could have fallen apart due to buyer issues. Willingness to work with a property manager whom was very difficult to work with and complete the sale.

        - Alpesh Patel - Cleveland, OH
      • Larry was a pleasure to work with and guided us through the selling process of our home. He readily answered all of our questions, and helped us determine what our best options were when decisions needed to be made. His knowledge of our neighborhood and years of experience in real estate gave us a huge comfort level in working with him. He made the whole process as convenient for us as possible, and often went above and beyond what we expected from a realtor. I would not hesitate to use his services again should the need arise.

        - kkjmomb - South Euclid, OH
      • Larry was great! Very passionate and knowledgeable about his job. He goes above and beyond to get things done. My home was listed the end of August and sold the end of October. Larry also helped me buy my condo in which it closed almost simultaneously. You won't find a better realtor then Larry and I highly recommend him for your realtor.

        - zuser20150713.. - 44143
      • We had listed our rental property with Larry a few years back and he was extremely helpful. We had limited resources and time and needed some work done on the Condo. Larry stepped right in and handled all of the contractors to perform the work, then sold the property quickly. We were so impressed with him, that when it was time to sell our home, it was an easy decision to go with him again. We met and discussed his plan for marketing our home. He felt that we needed to raise our price, that his strategy will work and he will sell the home quickly. We listed on a Wednesday and had a showing later that afternoon, and a written offer by that evening. Sold it in one day!

        - zuser201810.. - Medina, OH
      • Larry helped me to purchase a home in the Cleveland area. He was wonderful! He had a great knowledge of the surrounding area and knew exactly what was doing. He was very responsive to my needs and was always available when needed. Anyone looking to purchase a home would be lucky to work with Larry.

        - User241388 - Cleveland, OH
      • Larry was such a delight to work with! There are not enough good things to be said about him. He somehow managed to make the stressful process of buying a house as easy as possible. He quickly set up my house search, was very flexible with show times and always kept me in the loop. After finding my ideal home, he showed great negotiation skills and finally got a price that worked well for me. He also made the inspection process as smooth as possible and kept me updated constantly. He is incredibly professional, very likeable and just a good person all around. I will definitely be using his services in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the Cleveland area. Overall very impressed!

        - Damarys Decuba - Solon, OH
      • Larry did a fantastic job for us. We are a remote client and don't live in the area. We spent a weekend in Cleveland to manage our property and met with two other agents. Both seemed good at first but we also received a referral to Larry from someone in our building. I was hesitant to pick him since we never met him, but he won me over with his hunger and aggressiveness. He gets things done. I hate having to manage an agent. I want them to work for me, get things done for me, and make my life easier. Larry did exactly that. He sold our unit on its first day on the market. He understands the market, will price the property appropriately, and will get you an excellent offer.

        - Devan Adhia - Cleveland, OH
      • We do not have enough adjectives to describe the outstanding expertise and professionalism we received with Larry Wanke. We had the privilege of using Larry for selling our home as well as purchasing our current home (BOTH of which we managed to do within 18 hrs of each other !)From the get go, we found Larry to be a very empathetic, understanding, courteous, and knowledgeable agent. Through every step of our process with both buying and selling our homes, Larry patiently and thoroughly informed us and answered all questions. Larry took great time with us when we listed our home and gave favorable suggestions to market our home. His marketing skills were outstanding As we sold our home quickly and for many thousands of dollars more than two homes on our street. As far as purchasing our current home, Larry proved his talents and negotiating expertise as there were 5 other offers and we got the house.More positive reviews about Larry would be his communication skills and above all his availability! Larry would answer the phone, email or text immediately or soon after with always being friendly, upbeat, and encouraging. When we had a concern or a question Larry would promptly give us an answer or suggestion . Larry LISTENS! We believe Larry always had our best interests at heart and is a person of honesty and integrity.Larry has the ability to make you feel at ease and his energetic, positive outgoing personality makes him the perfect agent to help you sell your home or purchase your next home. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND LARRY WANKE.

        - SPBLorber - Strongsville, OH
      • Larry is very knowledgeable and professional. He is always only a text or phone call away. We never had to wait for a response. He walked us through every step of the selling/buying process and really eliminated the anxiety that goes along with it. If we were to ever move again, there is no one else I would call.

        - User8347047 - Lyndhurst, OH
      • Larry has been an absolute pleasure to work with. We couldn't believe how quickly he facilitated the sale of our home. He had great ideas for getting the house ready and was spot-on with pricing advice. We really appreciated that he always responded to our texted questions, even on off hours. Hopefully we won't have to do this again any time soon, but if we do, we wouldn't hesitate to call Larry.

        - Njunda643 - Euclid, OH
      • Larry helped with a family member's home sale last year and did such a fine job that when we needed a realtor ourselves, we contacted him. He was always prompt and thorough and had good input based on his wealth of experience. He was very responsive and also took the lead on a holiday weekend transaction when the other realtor was out of town. We so appreciate his dedication! Terrific job!

        - zuser 9/9/19 - Highland Heights, OH
      • Larry was recommended to us by a friend. From day one his commitment and dedication to the sale of our home was outstanding. Larry was professional, accountable, and a great communicator throughout the entire process. He went above and beyond to provide us with all possible options and ultimately get us the best deal for our home. He made a difficult transition a very good experience and we would highly recommend Larry.

        - zuser 9/30/19 - South Euclid, OH
      • Larry was impressive with his level of knowledgeable and professionalism. He was very personable and showed a lot of enthusiasm about selling the house. Larry's description of the property was spot on and awesome.We received multiple offers by the third day after listing. Larry was able to quickly resolve a few issues regarding title search.He negotiated effectively with buyer's agent.

        - Dacquah - Highland Heights, OH
      • Larry first helped me in deciding a fair price and advised me on what was necessary to make the house as attractive as possible. He was always available by phone, text or email and returned calls immediately. He explained the process thoroughly and kept me abreast of negotiations. I trusted Larry Wanke which made me much less apprehensive regarding the sale of my home. I had lived there for a very long time, and Larry understood how difficult it was for me to sell a place I had lived in for many years. He always informed me when someone wanted to view it and gave me sufficient time to inform my tenants. I was a excellent experience.

        - I.Lanese - Cleveland Heights, OH
      • Larry is a fantastic realtor! He was born and raised in the Cleveland area and knows Cleveland and all of the surrounding areas extremely well. He was very patient and listened intently as I explained exactly what I was looking for in a property. After the 1st ten minutes of out initial conversation, I knew I wanted him to represent me. He answered all of my questions and concerns throughout the home buying process quickly and honestly. And he brought to my attention important aspects that I hadn't considered. Larry is also a very friendly and charming guy. But he knows when he needs to be aggressive in pursuit of a property or representing your best interest. Larry is a true professional. I've used several agents over the years, and Larry is by far my favorite. Thank you very much Larry!

        - Brickhouse833 - Cleveland Heights, OH
      • Larry was attentive and responsive throughout the home selling process. His knowledge of the local market is fantastic and is one of his key attributes. Larry helped us to prepare the home for sale before the listing became active. We quickly received a full price offer and could not be more pleased. I highly recommend Larry!

        - Blakepr - South Euclid, OH
      • Larry did a great job for us selling my parents home, my siblings live out of state but wanted / needed to be involved and Larry accommodated that wonderfully and was very responsive to all of our inquiries.He was also very mindful of all the emotions my family, particularly my Mother, were going through selling the "family home"A very well done professional job

        - Mjellc1 - South Euclid, OH
      • Having been in the real estate investment business for over 25 years, I can say that Larry is the best real estate agent I have ever come across in my experience. He is timely and responsive. He is informed and balanced. He deserves my highest praise. I will work with him again.

        - Ash2926 - Mayfield Heights, OH
      • Larry is a great realtor. He is very knowledgeable and responsive. He is an excellent negotiator and fought hard to get the best deal for our new home. He was kind and understand when communicating with me and my children. I highly recommend Larry as your go-to realtor!

        - Christina Carr - Chagrin Falls, OH
      • Thank you Larry Wanke for the wonderful job in listing and selling our house! Your expertise and knowledge well exceeded our expectations!!!Larry was very efficient and kept us well Informed every step of the way.

        - jk89mansour - Mayfield Heights, OH

Larry came to us with high energy and enthusiasm to sell our house and he delivered, we received and accepted an offer the first day!Larry answered all our questions and guided us through the process easily and expertly. Especially in these uncertain times of COVID-19, Larry kept us updated on the status of the sale process every step of the way.We are pleased to say we are now in our new home, thanks to Larry Wanke. Thank you, Larry!

        - Luann Cawley - Richmond Heights, OH
      • When I reached out to three realtors to sell my home at the beginning of the pandemic, one never responded; the other cancelled and never rescheduled; and one, Larry Wanke, promptly responded and set-up a meeting. Larry Wanke was excellent at navigating the selling of my home during a very challenging time. While the pandemic has created a great deal of uncertainty in the world, I always felt confident in Larry's ability to respond. My house was put on the market in March, and the first person who viewed the home made an offer. The house was sold in two days. Issues that came up during the process of the sale were handled by Larry quickly and efficiently. He provided options and scenarios to help me make decisions. He provided frequent communication on the process and always responded promptly.Overall, my experience with Larry was outstanding and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling their home.

        - Jennifer Vokoun - South Euclid, OH
      • Larry was exceptional. We purchased our home in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic where the banks and mortgage lenders were both incompetent and overwhelmed. Larry was the one constant in our lives for about three months and he expertly guided us through the minefield that was getting into our new home. He helped manage our stress, coordinated firmly with the bank, and protected our position with the sellers throughout the entire process. He's the guy we would love to get a beer with when the world calms down a bit!We don't know if we will ever sell, but when that time comes Larry will be the first person we call, and he is the only agent we would direct buyers to in the future.

        - ColstonRealEstate - Cleveland Heights, OH
      • Larry is great at what he does! He knows a lot and isnt afraid to tell you to protect you as a buyer. He was extremely friendly and personable. My house closed within a month and this speedy process wouldnt have happened without the help of Larry. Go see Larry!

        - Alissa Rubin - 44124
      • Larry is a fantastic real estate agent, but an even better human being. My husband and I were first time home buyers trying to juggle the ins and outs of the lending process while dealing with the beginnings of a global pandemic, all while on a tight time line prior to beginning a new job in a new state. We heavily relied on him and he never disappointed. We honestly would never have gotten our dream home if we hadn't had Larry in our corner. If we ever decide to relocate in the Cleveland area, Larry will be the first person we call to not only sell our home, but to find the next. We recommend him whole heartedly.

        - ajfushi - Cleveland, OH
      • Larry helped me with a very difficult sale. My property was a rental for many years and was pretty beat up. Larry recommended a very reasonable contractor to fix multiple issues inside the home. This advise made all the difference and the home sold for a price that I did not think we could get to in it's original condition. Larry also gave me a very detailed list of items that needed to be taken care of for the sale to go from offer to change of title, which was very helpful for a first-time seller.

        - gdd12 - Cleveland Heights, OH
      • We definitely lucked out! My boyfriend and I were in town from out of state and just happened to run into Larry when we decided to check out a property that he was showing to someone else. He ended up showing it to us as well and we decided to work with him that day. Very high and positive energy, professional, super knowledgeable not only in real estate sales but also in real estate investment, and very responsive. He gave us sufficient information for us to be able to make a sound decision remotely. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Larry!

        - Takekoshi Komaki - Cleveland Heights, OH
      • Larry was extremely knowledgeable and was able to accommodate my schedule even with last minute changes.He advocated on my behalf with the title and mortgage lender and was on top of everything and kept me informed with ever step.I highly recommend him and am thankful he made this extremely easy for me

        - Patricia Machinack - Cleveland, OH
      • Larry is professional and courteous. He helped us purchase our new condo and made it stress free by handling every detail large and small. He responds promptly to voice messages and emails. He understood our specific needs as to what we were looking for in our new home. I have dealt with a number of realtors over the years and he is definitely the best!

        - aisacsonlaw - Chagrin Falls, OH
      • After living in an older home for 10 years, one can become a bit jaded about its quirks and imperfections. This is how my wife and I felt about our home, and we let Larry know it in no uncertain terms when we first contacted him. When Larry arrived, he was pleasantly surprised by what he saw and assured us it wasn't as bad as we described. He emphasized our property's positives and laid out a plan of action with a time table to fix the the things that needed help, to the final listing. From start to finish, Larry guided us, offering advice on what he felt should be taken care of, to things we could leave as is, and even had a contact list of professionals he trusted should we need it. Through all the fears, anxieties and bumps in the road that come with emptying a house after so many years, Larry was always quick to respond, there to reassure and keep us on task. When we were finally ready to list, Larry's photographer took amazing photos that showcased our home's & property's nuances, so much so, I could hardly believe it was ours! Larry offered us a pricing strategy based on statistical analysis with ranges dependant on how quickly we wanted our home sold. We came to a consensus, and our home was under contract in... One day! We got lucky, no doubt. Larry had prepared us for a more realistic time frame, but these are strange times and we couldn't be happier with the result. One thing we do know is that without Larry and his team's honesty, professionalism, and communication, this result wouldn't have been possible, so it is with great pleasure and gratitude I write this review and recommendation for Larry and his team.Thank you Larry!

        - Greg Gathy - Highland Heights, OH
      • We had two offers on our house within days. He's a great communicator. Answers all questions promptly. Had a great experience, thanks to his expertise!

        - Bert Piccirillo - University Heights, OH
      • Larry Wanke went above and beyond for us during our house search and eventual purchase. Larrys expertise, resourcefulness, and genuine drive helped us get the home of our dreams, even as first-time owners. We highly recommend Larry Wanke and would definitely work with him again.

        - Stephen Haruna - Solon, OH
      • I couldn't be happier with the level of attention and care that Larry and his team put into selling my home! He was always very responsive, helpful, and professional. As a first time home seller, Larry was there to walk me through every step of the process. He really delivered on everything he said he would, making the entire process as smooth as possible. I would happily recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy a home!

        - Will Osteen - South Euclid, OH
      • Larry is the best! I was left alone to sell my sisters home and know nothing about selling homes. He made it easy for me to succeed. When I texted or called him with questions he answered me or went looking for the answers. He is kind and caring. He guided me through all the paperwork involved. He found a buyer and sold it quickly. I highly recommend Larry Wanke.

        - Kdolovac - Lyndhurst, OH
      • Larry was the agent for the sellers of the home we recently purchased. My husband and I were so impressed with Larrys professionalism, honesty and no games approach that asked him to help us sell our house. An excellent communicator, Larry works tirelessly for his clients, is an expert in his field, and his vast knowledge of the market coupled with his enthusiasm make him a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Larry to anyone looking to sell their house as he is by far the best realtor out there!

        - Bairdamy1 - Hudson, OH
      • Over the last several months Larry provided guidance and advice on the sale of my home. He is professional, knowledgeable and honest and gave solid advice when I needed direction. I appreciate his work ethic and positive attitude and did I say I appreciated his honesty?! He treated me well and made it seem that selling my home was his top priority. I highly recommend Larry.

        - Jackie - South Euclid, OH
      • If I could give Larry Wanke and his team 10 stars, I would. They helped me find a new home and also sold our current home. Larry was incredibly helpful through each transaction and made the entire process painless. He's professional, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. If you are looking to sell your home (and MAXIMIZE what you get for it), I would highly recommend Larry. I've already recommended Larry to friends and family and they have been extremely happy with his service as well.

        - J. Krebs - Lyndhurst, OH
      • Larry works hard and is very knowledgeable. He was readily available for house hunting and he crafted an online search tool that was tailored to our needs. I would be pleased to work with him again in the future.

        - Zuser 3/30/21 - Mayfield Village, OH
      • Larry was great to work with. He helped us in every process of our new home. Larry would respond immediately to my questions and negotiated the best deal for us. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable in the real estate market. We would definitely recommend him to our family and friends. Thank you Larry

        - Ronald Strazar - Mayfield Heights, OH
      • I approached Larry based on the reviews on zillow for selling my investment property in South Euclid area. Larry helped me sell this house in 40 days and above list price. He took professional pictures and advertised the home very diligently. His follow through was very impressive - through negotiating with buyer, contingencies, inspections and closing. My contract fell through twice with another realtor , and Larry stepped in and closed the house. This allowed me to plan my 1031 exchange in time. I would recommend Larry for investment properties or for primary residence. He is truly a "professional" and has your best interest in mind. Thanks Larry , and looking forward to working with you for future transactions.

        - Patelogy - South Euclid, OH
      • Larry was extremely helpful in finding my new home. I am a first time home owner and Larry helped find which was best suited for me. He was very honest with me, which I appreciated greatly. He would give me pros and cons and was extremely fair. He is truly someone who wants to help others and I could not be more grateful to have had him help me along the way!

        - Jake Dimuzio - Northfield, OH
      • Larry is exceptional. Listed and sold my home in a very professional manner!! He definitely will get your home sold. Hes super patient and diligent!!Larry communicated with me at every step of the process! I found him to be both straight forward and thoughtful. Id highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.

        - zuser20140618.. - Hudson, OH
      • We really enjoyed working with Larry when we bought our home, but we were especially grateful for him when we went to sell it. As first time home sellers, he did a great job walking us through the process, explaining all of the parts of the offer and paperwork. We felt like his approach to negotiations was fair and straightforward, which really fit what we wanted. We ran into a tough situation - we moved a week before our walk through and our home flooded after we had left. He spent an inordinate amount of time with us, helping us figure out what we needed to do logistically, and helped us get contractors out to the house and legal counsel throughout the process. Since we were uneasy not being there and seeing the work, he even stopped by the house for us the day before our final walk through to check on everything for us. We wish we he could have moved with us to our new city so we work with him again at our next move!

        - Neilsonfamily15 - University Heights, OH
      • I have been working with Larry for almost 10 years now! He works to clearly understand his clients and very responsive to carry forth the transaction. He has correctly advised me on finding managers for rental properties, working with contractors to fix repairs and in general hands on with going beyond just the buying/selling of property. Larry is generous, a true professional at his job.I highly recommend his services.

        - SanjivKala - South Euclid, OH
      • Larry was amazing! He came in excited to work with us and delivered ABOVE expectations! He was extremely knowledgeable, patient, kind, fun to work with and resilient! He will work hard for you - it was an incredible experience. He sold our property the same day it was listed. He is the best!

        - G. Gliba - Hudson, OH
      • We had an INCREDIBLE experience working with Larry. He is so knowledgable with years of experience and a true passion for his clients and their best interest. We were looking at multiple homes in all areas of North East Ohio and he was always readily available and happy to show us homes in all areas. He was extremely professional every step of the way and walked us through every part of the process, answering every question we had. He is great at communicating, wether text, email or call and his response times are impressive. He was always direct and gave us ethical and thoughtful suggestions and advice based on our options. The process was so fluid and easy and you can tell he works extremely hard to make this process not only enjoyable, but everything you've been dreaming about. We highly recommend Larry and will continue to do so!!

        - Bryn Miller - Olmsted Twp, OH
      • Larry was upfront and honest when he spoke with us about selling our home. He explained how we could get the most from our home, he was accessible for questions, and always returned texts and calls promptly. He truly understood the market for our area and how it worked. We received multiple offers on our home the day after it listed. Larry helped us to make sure the search criteria for the home we were looking for was on target. He again displayed knowledge of the market and was the key factor in us getting the house we desired. We have already recommended him to others.

        - Duboisdon - South Euclid, OH
      • I am a first time homebuyer and Larry made the process very easy and understandable. He took care of most of the work, told me exactly what i needed to do, and made the best recommendation. He had my interest at heart and was not trying to just "make a sale". He has a thorough understanding of the market and how to work it to your advantage.

        - Wesley Taylor - Willoughby, OH
      • Larry was a wonderful realtor to work with. We were randomly paired with Larry after requesting a showing and couldnt have got more lucky. As first time buyers in this wild market, Larry was attentive, patient and honest with us. Traits we greatly appreciated. Larry would provide his honest input when asked without being pushy and advocated for us when needed. I would recommend him to everyone I know purchasing a house. We are so grateful for him and all of his help and guidance throughout this stressful yet exciting process.
