Experienced and Knowledgeable
My husband and I became first time homeowners last September thanks to Larry Tristano. Our personal experience was that Larry was more than willing to go the distance for us as his clients. He kept his optimism at this side when we were so completely discouraged with circumstance after circumstance that seemed to keep us from finding a place to call home for our family.
I can clearly remember time and again how he saw the possibilities and jumped at opportunities to get us into a house under a limited time frame. He spent hours discussing our loan program with our lender and when others wanted us to change our loan program for convenience, he kept our best interest in mind and worked beyond those who wanted to remain ignorant to our loan program and requirements.
He made it possible for us to view house after house, after house and after house – sometimes during times that kept him from being with his family so that he could accommodate our time restraints. My husband was working in Oakland at the time and it was difficult to view any home during normal business hours.
It was not uncommon for me to be up late at night worrying about where I would be living in a short few weeks, and an email would come through to my BlackBerry from Larry, with more houses we could view, followed by an email response to lenders and other Realtors.
He showed up for us until the signature was on our deed of trust and he has followed up with us even after with a celebratory bottle of champagne that we enjoyed for first New Year’s Eve in our beautiful new home.
If you want personal attention and care with a “can do” attitude, Larry is the Realtor you want. He is someone we trusted through our whole first ride in the home buying process. He is experienced and knowledgeable, yet open to learning about your non-standard loan programs. I highly recommend him and encourage you to give him a call if you are looking at selling or buying your home.
Larry is definitely who we will be calling if and when that time comes again!
Thank you, Larry. We appreciate all you did for us!” -Mr. & Mrs. Aponte, Clients
Couldn’t Recommend Him Any More Highly
Larry took excellent care of me in my journey towards purchasing my first home, and I couldn’t recommend him any more highly. He was extremely patient in teaching me the ins and outs of the entire process, what to expect, and he made me aware of common pitfalls to look out for. Always a professional, he dealt with the various inspectors, lending agents and appraisers with my full faith and trust. Even after the sale was complete, Larry stayed in touch to make sure I was happy with my new home (I am). I have already recommended him to a few friends who are also looking to purchase homes.” -Michael B., Client
Very Knowledgeable and Patient
Very knowledgeable and patient agent. Worked hard for us over a period of months to find “the house” for us in a tough real estate market. Made the process of the purchase a relatively painless experience. Would recommend Larry’s service to anyone.” -Mr. & Mrs. Gabriel, Clients
High Level of Integrity
Larry is a consummate professional. Knowledgeable, thorough and responsive. He has the demeanor that makes working with him a pleasant experience and above all else, maintains a high level of integrity in all his dealings. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for real estate needs in Sonoma County.” -Michael I., Client
Acts in the Best Interests of his Clients
What I found unique about Larry was the fact that he was less interested in selling a product and more concerned with meeting the needs of a client…I believe it says something that over the years I have come back on three separate occasions to do business with Larry…If you are looking for someone to assist you in your business dealings, it has been my experience that Larry Tristano will always act in the best interests of his clients and not himself.” -Mr. Prentice, Client
Pleasure to Work With
Larry was a pleasure to work with, someone who really looked out for our best interest. He was sincere and interested in what we were looking for and work around us to meet our expectation. I am very happy with his service and will return to him for any other Real Estate needs.” -Mrs. Eang, Client
It was with great trust and confidence in Larry that allowed us to move out of California shortly after placing our home on the market. Before we left, Larry spent time explaining the selling process to us. Personal, yet always professional, Larry communicated with us regularly. His style conveyed that he was selling our home, not just a house. Thorough in all aspects of the sale, Larry made this process painless. We wholeheartedly recommend Larry Tristano.” -Kate & Jason, Clients
Would Use Him Again (and did!)
Larry was responsive to requests for information. He kept us informed about properties as they were put up for sale. He thoroughly explained items that were new to us. He worked very hard to take our purchase to completion. We would use him again if the opportunity were to arise.” -Frank & Maria, Clients
My family and I were given an amazing opportunity to buy a home, This was something we never thought we would get to do. I had no experience in this process and a lot of nervousness of how to even get started. Larry made it so easy and I felt completely at ease. He sat down with my husband, myself and our son and got all the information of what we wanted in a home. From there we had immediate homes to start working with. Right away we had homes to do a walk through and he kept us up to date on new listings, by phone and email. When we did find a home he showed us how to secure a deposit down and what we might like to offer. Now we had been looking in a 55 and older parks, with this there are restrictions to pets, ages of all occupants. He called every park in the cities we were looking at and found a perfect one for us. He also was available to meet or talk to at any time of the day. When we did make an offer on a home, he guided us through each step and kept us posted on counter offers. When the offer was accepted Larry got us our inspections, park approvals and into the escrow process. Before we new it we were sitting down to sign papers and buy our first home. Larry found and got us into our home in a month. Now talking to other people who have bought homes and every single one were amazed at how hard he worked to make that happen in that time span. Larry got us the home we dreamed of, but never thought we’d have. We have complete trust in him and the knowledge he passed to us in the process of home buying was outstanding. He will be recommended to any and everyone we know. Thank You, -Nicole, Stephen and Jack, Clients
Above and Beyond the Call of Duty
Larry extended himself above and beyond the call of duty in helping me find a home in Sonoma. I live in San Francisco and was looking for a second home in Wine Country and found Larry! Not knowing much about the area, Larry enlightened me with important tid-bits to help me decide the best house for me. He is easy to reach and had the answers to my many questions and concerns. He is an honest, nice and sincere person I now have a quiet retreat in the country…I highly recommend him. -Sofia P., Client

He has exceptional work ethic and integrity. I recommend him without reservation. -Dr.Kernbach, Client
