International Home Buyers - You need Larry!
My spouse and I recently came to work in Edmonton from Australia. We were helped by Larry on two occasions over a period of a year. The first time, we had one week to purchase a Condo, as part of an employer sponsored visit, and the second time we found a perfect single dwelling residence which Larry helped us to successfully purchase.
On our first visit, Larry not only had to show us a multiple properties in a few days. He also had to educate us about financing, condo fees, condo docs and Provincial housing regulations as well as the transportation network in the city. He did an incredible job of teaching "real estate 101 for new Albertans' , all the while maintaining a cheerful demeanour as we equivocated and (finally!) decided on a condo. Larry's unparalleled knowledge of the market and frank advice were absolute assets during this visit and helped us make what turned out to be a very good decision not to buy at that time.
Almost a year later a property in the neighbourhood where we were renting became available. We contacted Larry straight away. He helped us to navigate all the questions related to title and permissions as well as inspections and recommendations for lawyers needed to complete the purchase. The process would have been so much more complicated and fraught with pitfalls for us as international buyers without Larry's constant guidance and sophisticated negotiating skills.
We have already recommended him to a friend who is looking for a new home. We will continue to do so as long as we live in this town and Larry is working in it!

I would like to thank you both for helping me through the process of buying my first home
Larry and Teresa were there to assist me in the purchase of my first home. They answered all of my questions and there were many. I felt that they were there for me at all times when I needed assistance, and reassurance. They offered me help and honest advise and were very approachable. I do believe that I may have been more difficult than most, as my expectation was that I wanted it all my way. They were very patient and helped me find what I was looking for. I was able to trust them and you can as well.
I love the idea of family working together to help other families.
"Selling or buying a property in an aggtessive market should be easy, it is not. The professionalism and market experience and espertise of Larry Candido takes all the confusion out of it, and most importantly, trust. If you can trust your Realtor, your problems in buying and selling fade away.
I was recently taksed with selling my parent's home, a difficult and at times emotional journey.
Larry Candido guided that journey with great care, sensitivity, and knowledge. His market knowledge, his honesty, his integrity, was invaluable. You won't get fiction, you will get honest answers to the questions that are of utmost importance to you, you will get the truth and you will get it to every question or concern you may have. That is priceless and if you think you will get that on your own, you won't
You can buy and sell property without Larry Candido, I can say I never would"
And. ........................... I actually meant it!!!!
Both Larry and Teresa have been outstanding and ultimate professional from the moment of inital contact, right to the end in having sold our son and daughter in law's condo to the finding and closing of the pruchase of their new home. Both Larry and Teresa are extremely patient, honest, offer strong and sound advice throught the sale and purchase processes, and very knowledgeable in thinking about what to consider when making a difficult decision. They take time to understand the client's needs and situation from the outset. Both are very personable, forthright, believable, organized, time conscious, and make themselves available to serve their cleint's needs. We appreciate the personal service that, you Teresa and Larry have provided!!! We would strongly recommend you to others who are in need of buying or selling a home!!!
Len & Joan Huculak
Thank you Larry and Teresa for all your hard work in selling my condo. Your were abel to overcome the perceptions of some potential buyers about the location. Your experience was invaluable during negotiations.. This condo did not sell itself!! The face that you work as a team insured that every opportunity got the full attention needed. We highly recommend you.

I met Larry at an open house when we bought our first home in Edmonton 23 years ago. Larry handled several Real Estate transactions for us over the years, both buying and selling. We were always completly satisfice, he definately earned our trust and respect and became our friend as well as our Realtor. He helped me buy this house 11 years ago and continued to stay in touch sending me market information and occasional newsletter. So when I retired last year decided to sell the house and downsize to a condo, it was a no brainer to call Larry. Even though we haven't seen each other for several years he was right there with his knowledge, expertise and sense of humour. This is the first I've had to handle selling by myself, so I was a bit nervous about making the right decisions on my own, Larry answered all my questions, helped me choose the right listing price, manage viewings, and ultimately negotiate the sale, managing to keep me fairly grounded and calm throughout the process. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Larry for any real estate transactions.
Many thanks, Larry. I've appreciated your help in managing all this.
Sean Joyner and Nishika Kalupahana
Being first-time home buyers, we were extremely nervous, anxious and uninformed. Honestly, we didn't even know where to start in our home search. Not only did Larry and Teresa Candido point us in the right direction as far as the steps we had to take, they provided us with the contacts we needed and even walked us through every procedure. In the end, we believe we purchased the perfect first home for us - and at a price far below what we'd expected to pay. Don't even debate using Larry and Teresa as your real estate agents - do it!
Our experience with Larry
Our experience with Larry Candido has been positive in all respects, from his detailed advice regarding the original listing price, to his valuable suggestions for staging, to the great pictures he took for the multiple service listing. Not only were we able to sell our townhouse in less than two weeks (in a complex where other townhouses have sat for months without sale), Larry successfully engineered and then professionally dealt with a multiple offer situation in such a manner that we ended up getting thousands over our original list price. We will use Larry again in a heartbeat to sell our future homes and in fact, are using him in our search for that home now.
Chris and Nish Andersen
Coming to a new province and city and knowing nothing about the area can be intimidating. Larry Candido was referred to us and Larry has been nothing but exemplary. With his many years experience he was able to show us the different areas of the city and by listening to our needs matched us to our new home. He had no problem spending hours looking at prospective places and was always available to accommodate our schedule. He has also gone the extra mile to organize lawyers, inspectors and renovation contractors. His follow up has been impeccable and we would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone. Larry is our Realtory.

I would like to thank you for your professional, knowledgeable approach which undoubtedly assisted in selling the condo during a difficult real estate market. The virtual tour brochure was attractive and complete. Information provided such as a Comparative Market Analysis assisted in the decision making process. Listing Reports were excellent for comparison and monitoring. Updates occurred on a regular basis and you answered all my many questions. Many thanks
Sheer twist of fate
It was a a sheer twist of fate! In my search for a condo, Larry answered my first phone call and I knew, within an hour, that I could trust him. I loved his sense of humour, his knowledge of the real estate market in Edmonton, his intuition in knowing what kind of places would suit me, his advice about condos that would be safe and convenient for my comfort, his willingness to drive me to several condos and point out the advantages and disadvantages of each place, his patience in letting me make my own decisions, his availability through phone and e-mails and his genuine interest in finding me a place that I could call home and all the extra bits of information that were essential to my making the right choice to suit my needs.
I did not feel pressured or rushed. Having Larry as my Real Estate Agent made a task that I thought would be overwhelming, a pleasure.
Thank you, Larry, for answering all my questions, for guiding me through all the steps of completing the legal documents and for helping me find a new home.
Rev. Beth Hawley
Thanks for the great job you did selling my house. I hope this testimonial helps you sell some more: Larry is a true professional in every sense of the word. He helped us sell our house every step of the way from start to finish. He is very thorough, interested, responsive and communicative, including daily updates throughout the listing period. He provided great advice on when to sell and provided a detailed comparative market analysis to help us choose a listing price. He posted our listing online immediately with immediate responses and showings, and a quick sale at our desired price. He provided helpful tips for preparing our house for showing and selling. After the sale, Larry again remained in close contact and provided updates as they occurred, up to and including possession date and even follow up after possession date. I highly recommend Larry if you're looking for someone that provides valuable guidance while allowing you to make your own decisions. It was a pleasure working with Larry and we will not hesitate to do so again if the opportunity arises.
Many thanks to Larry for his outstanding work in the sale of our home. Larry's knowledge of his business and his much-appreciated guidance made all the difference to us. We are very pleased with his professional yet personal approach, helping us sort through all the details of selling our home. We enthusiastically recommend Larry to anyone wishing to buy or sell.
Chris and Natasha Bazos
"We were moving to Calgary and wanted to know that our house was going to be sold so that we could buy another in Calgary. We chose Larry because we wanted someone who was very experienced and would ensure that our interests were protected. Larry made sure we were confident that our listing price was in line with the market. We were able to sell our house very close to the listing price and in short order, which allowed us to shop for a new house with comfort that we had money in the bank!"
Darren Dansereau and Trish Wiedemann
I happened to meet Larry by chance one afternoon when I decided to stop in to an open house he was attending. After advising him of basically what I was looking for Larry offered to assist. If your computer savvy alot of time can be saved by seeing potential homes via internet before you actually go there. Larry was very patient during this time and did not rush anything. He truly wanted me to purchase the home I would be happy with. Upon looking at many potential homes Larry again, impressed me by acting in my best interest in negotiating the deal, providing information, offering advice and making it easy ... all with a good sense of humor. He has gained a client and friend for life. This type of service is very rare these days.
First time Buyers
"Larry was very easy to talk with and he offered excellent advice and experience. He was very attentive, easy to reach and always got back to us promptly. He was very professional in assisting us and in representing us throughout the process of buying our first house. We would be happy to work with him again in the future."
Jo-Ann Meyer and Jeff Marvin
I want to thank you for all of your assistance with the sale of my old home & the purchase of my new home. I know very little about the real estate industry & the many steps that need to be taken to complete various transactions. Without your help I would have been lost. Thank you again & take care.
Diligent & Perservant
Better late than never! Here is a blurb for your web site. Larry is a man of great patience and humor. It took us over a year of searching to find the home we were looking for and Larry diligently showed us house after house while we constantly debated what it was that we wanted. Other realtors would have been frustrated and given up on us but Larry persevered until we found our new home - which we love. Larry's pleasant demeanor and excellent sense of humor have made him not only an good realtor but a good friend.
Randy & Natalie Witte
Very Pleased Client
Larry listed and sold my house for me as well as help me purchase my new home. Throughout this entire process he was extremely pleasant, helpful and very patient. His competence, wealth of knowledge and real estate experience made buying and selling a home a whole lot easier....almost enjoyable (His great sense of humour didn't hurt either). Larry encouraged me to take my time and guided me throughout the entire process. Larry always took time to answer my questions and diligently researched the market for what I was looking for. He made himself easily accessible. I know Larry is busy, but he always made me feel as though I was his only client. He also has many contacts, so when I needed expertise in another field, he always had a reference for me. I am so glad a friend recommended Larry Candido to me and I would recommend Larry to anyone!!!
Larry Candido is a first class professional who relates to his clients as he would his personal friends! Larry listens, and acts confidently, with solid expertise and knowledge about real estate activities in Edmonton and the communities we live in Mr. Candido has a very nice car so he must sell at lot of houses! Larry provides the whole package when selling or buying a home and always sees the big picture - he totally understands the emotional and legal aspects involved and provides invaluable advice to his clients. Larry Candido adds enormous value to any purchase or sale and his friendly gregarious nature makes working with him pure pleasure Larry sells homes, not houses!
Dennis & Beverley Mahood
Knowledeable, friendly and Professional
Larry's many years of experience truly is an asset to anyone wishing to buy or sell. He is able to offer advice with confidence and skill. Larry's sense of humor helps take much of the stress away from the moving experience. Always available to help, knowledgeable, friendly and professional... the qualities that brought us back to Larry for a second time. I would certainly recommend Larry to anyone wishing to buy or sell.
Glenn and Cathy Rattray
You have helped us sell two homes and buy two homes in Edmonton. We have been very pleased with the professional yet personal approach you took with our Real Estate needs. You always took the time and made the effort to make sure each detail was covered either purchasing or selling and we really appreciated this. You made sure to look out for our best interests and in the end every transaction was smooth, problem free. We certainly would recommend you to anyone looking for an honest and approachable Realtor. Thanks for all your support.
Kirk and Claudette McCartney
Another Happy Client
Larry Candido went way beyond my expectations in handling the sale of my home. He was the ultimate in professionalism, his advice was always sound and he guided me through the maze of selling my home effectively while always honoring my needs and wishes. I presumed that you would only want a short statement, but I really am most grateful for what you did and would gladly flesh this out for you.
Larry Candido took the time to tell me about the market, his company, and the process for selling my home. He was thorough, open and honest in his approach to what he and I needed to do. Larry was efficient in taking the action to put my house on the market quickly which resulted in a sale in 9 days, and I was happy with the price. His down to earth nature and sense of humour were much appreciated.
Buying a house for the first time proved to be exciting, rewarding and certainly not without some stressful moments. Larry helped us sort through everything and find exactly what we were looking for. Larry was able to lend his experience, hard work, and patience to find us the right house. After all buying a house doesn?t have to be a chore, that?s what Larry is for.
Luke Kurach and Stephanie Heykants
Being first time home buyers, Larry made our purchase seem very relaxed. He was honest and worked hard to find us the perfect home. He considered all our wants and needs and got us exactly what we wanted in a very short period of time. We have recommended him to many of our friends and family and will continue to do so. Thanks Larry
Jonathan and Lisa Keen
To Whom It May Concern
I have known Larry Candido and his family for over 20 years. I have found him to be not only a true friend but also very professional in his Real Estate activities. When my husband and I were selling our home, we felt he went to bat for us in the negotiations and consistently gave what we considered, valuable guidance in an arena we were unfamiliar with. When it came time for us to purchase another home; I really got an appreciation for how much work a realtor has to do to earn his keep. He drove me around to look at many places over a period of two months! When I thought I would have to give up and rent, he found just the right place and again, helped in the negotiations. Over the years he has continuously kept us up to date as to what is happening in the real estate markets and been willing to answer any questions we might have. Larry is very knowledgeable, dependable, personable and moves with integrity. However, one of the things I like about him the most is his keen sense of humor that will make your journey with him very enjoyable.
Experience & Professionalism
"Buying or selling a home can be very exciting. While it is an exciting moment, it can also be quite stressful at the same time. Larry's experience, professionalism and personable approach to his clients helps to ease those tensions and make the situation a pleasant experience. We first called on Larry to help us find a home in Millwoods in 1980 and found him to be very helpful. He quickly determined what our needs and desires were, provided us with valuable information and ideas and in relatively short order found us our first home in Edmonton.. Our needs have changed over the years and we have moved twice since then. And on both occasions, there was never any thought of using anyone else other than Larry. In fact, we have now asked Larry to help find a suitable home for our parents who are relocating from the farm into the city."
Terry & Marilyn Holmes
I have used Larry in two separate real estate transactions and found him to be proactive, helpful and very knowledgeable about the market and the buying/selling process. He helped me from start to finish and made several excellent suggestions. I can strongly recommend Larry as a competent realtor.
D. Frioult, Financial Associate/Banker
Competence and integrity
"Competence and integrity are the two qualities we look for in the person who helps us relocate, and Larry has both. We believe you will be served well by his dedication to his vocation and his knowledge of buying and selling property. He's even been known to close a deal by treating a client to a Tim Horton's donut!"
Rev. Dr & Mrs. L. Dean Hempelmann
The one thing that I appreciated the most about dealing with Larry was his patience and non-aggressive manner in which he showed me homes. He made buying a house a pleasurable experience.
Terry Jantz - Investment Associate ScotiaMcleod
We are extremely glad that we were referred to an easy, breezy, jovial real estate guy like Larry. He: L istens to your needs A nswers all your questions R egularly does his homework R eports to you on time Y our time well spent We would confidently recommend him to others
Ashok & Sara Johnson
We had just four days to buy a house, but that was plenty of time--thanks to Larry! He's like a duck, smooth and calm on the surface but working like mad beneath the surface. He knows the market, he understands people, he commits to his clients, and he's a tremendous negotiator. We're 100% satisfied with every aspect of his service.
Rev. Steve and Brenda Chambers
We have had several very smooth real estate transactions while living in Edmonton and Larry Candido was our one and only choice as an agent. He is brutally honest ( "are you really serious about that price? ") and extremely fair ("this is too good to pass by"). We trusted him completely!! We had a small crisis regarding a 1 cm. discrepancy...the garage was 1 cm too close to the back alley...and Larry calmed our hysteria and helped us negotiate through the bureaucracy so that the sale was completed. He is shrewd when he is selling your house and he is just as canny when looking for a house for you. Great qualities when you're trying to make the best deal!!! His interpersonal skills are wonderful and he has a great sense of humor and never appears to get stressed. We would recommend Larry unconditionally. He is an honest and committed member of the community and will do his very best for his clients.

Looks at all the angles
"Big Lar is helpful, kind and not affraid to let you know a different angle that you may have not of seen."
Just want to say "Thank You" Larry for your assistance in the real estate market that you have provided me. In the 14 years that we did real estate transactions, you were prompt in returning my calls, gave me honest opinions, and followed up on all transactions as well as my concerns. Thanks again Larry,
My partner, Shirley and I purchased home in Devon, Alberta with Larry's help in March of 2002. Our knowledge of real estate was rudimentary and with Larry's help and advice we were able to determine our needs and requirements and find a house suitable for our family. Larry was a great help in guiding us through the purchasing process and his negotiating skills saved us money. I would not hesitate in recommending Larry to other people in the market for a home.
Both were professional in their approach
Thank you for the thorough job you did in selling our home. We were especially pleased to work also with Teresa Candido and most of our contact was with Teresa on a regular basis. Both were professional in their approach and kept us informed as to what was happening on a day to day basis. We felt that our best interests were being taken care of and we received a number of recommendations on what we could do to our home to assist the sale process. We happened to be involved in a move at the time as well and had to leave the staged home in their capable hands. There were a few minor details to be taken care of in our absence and they took care of them and kept us informed. We were pleased with our experience with Larry and Teresa and would without hesitation suggest them for the sale of your home.
