The My NC Homes team is one of the Triangle’s most well-rounded real estate firms. Their small-team dynamic allows them to do the work of a big brokerage without compromising the personal attention you deserve during the purchase or sale of your home. Thanks to the unique strengths and abilities of each team member, they’re capable of handling even the most challenging transaction.
Here’s a quick introduction to each team member and a quick summary of what they bring to the table.
Lauren Wimple: Licensed Broker
Lauren grew up in the Triangle area just outside of Raleigh. She’s made lifelong friends, can tell you all about the area’s best hidden gems, and loves to chat about what makes each community so unique.
Lauren graduated in 2014 with a degree in economics from UNC Chapel Hill. Quickly after graduating, she earned her broker license and has worked in the industry ever since. She works under the guidance of Larry and Andrew, pulling from their experience and expertise to supplement her local knowledge and financial background. When Lauren’s not helping client’s, she can be found in the office tackling administrative duties for the whole team. As a recent graduate herself, she understands the specific needs of grad students, medical residents, and young professionals.
Andrew Palumbo: Licensed Broker and Co-Founder of My NC Homes
Andrew Palumbo is the proud co-founder of My NC Homes. As a father of two children about to enter their teen years, he understands the importance of a family-friendly neighborhood with good schools nearby. Andrew and his wife moved to the Triangle in 2007 and instantly fell in love with the area.
Before Andrew was a real estate agent, he spent several years working in the construction industry, which gives him the upper-hand when dealing with new construction properties. From spotting poor workmanship in the foundation to accompanying you through the blue tape walkthrough, he’s determined to ensure every new homebuyer gets the exceptional new construction home they signed on for. When he’s not overseeing the purchase of a new home, he loves to help first-time homebuyers navigate the unfamiliar waters of their very first real estate purchase. Andrew loves to crunch the numbers and monitor the real estate market with a fine-toothed comb. When he’s not helping clients, you can find him in his office documenting the micro and macro events in the market for the team.
Larry Tollen: Licensed Broker and Founder of My NC Homes
Larry is the visionary behind the My NC Homes team. He moved to the area in 2004 and has never looked back since. He earned his broker license in 1991 in Pennsylvania but Like Andrew, he too has had extensive experience in construction with a keen eye for making sure everything is done properly. From buying to selling and renovating to restoring, Larry’s done it all in his 40 years as an agent. He also enjoys helping empty nesters find the right home for the next stage of their lives.
On top of being an award-winning Realtor, Larry is also the marketing director for the team. If you visit the blog, you’ll find hundreds of articles written by him over the past few years about housing trends, general home maintenance, and things to do in the Triangle area.
The My NC Homes Difference
My NC Homes is built on integrity. They will never represent a buyer and seller in the same transaction (commonly known as a dual agent). If a situation ever arises where your best interest might be compromised, they’ll take the initiative to connect you with another agent in the area they trust to represent you. You’re needs and desires are always more important to us than a commission, and they even offer a guarantee that if you’re not totally satisfied with your service during the listing process that you can terminate the agreement without consequence.
You have a lot of choice when it comes to buying or selling real estate in the Triangle. Who you choose to represent you is one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make. As your real estate agents, Lauren, Andrew, and Larry are committed to providing you with every bit of information you need to make informed decision, and then some. With over 50 years of combined real estate experience they can help you find the right home at the right price.
