It's a question we hear on a regular basis, "We love your site but we were hoping you could get a "free online valuation. Why don't you offer this on your site?"   

Why Zillow Values Your Home Wrong

My NC Homes has reviewed a dozen or more of them, trying to find one we felt good about offering our clients/customers. The truth is we haven't found a single one that we felt was worth putting on our site. They're all flawed for the same reason; they calculate your home's value using a number of false assumptions. The first is that all lots within a neighborhood are the same. They don't know whether your lot backs to a beautiful glade or a powerline, whether it's level, hilly, a corner lot, backs to a highway or is positively (or negatively) impacted by adjoining properties.

Meet Larry Tollen of My NC Homes

As a longtime Realtor, Larry has seen it all. When he and Andrew founded My NC Homes, it took almost no time at all for them to agree on how they’re team should operate. Experience, integrity, and results. These are the pillars in which their team is founded on because they’re also what’s most important to you as a buyer or seller.

When working with the My NC Homes Team, you can expect nothing but the best service possible. Their team is committed to treating their clients the same way they would wish to be treated were the roles reversed. My NC Homes was founded on the belief that your best interested are the top priority, not the agent’s commission.

Lauren Wimple, First-time buying specialist

When Lauren graduated in 2014 from UNC Chapel Hill with a degree in economics, she was eager to apply her education and enthusiasm in the real estate market.

Working under the mentorship of Larry and Andrew, Lauren has gained invaluable experience and industry knowledge, which she then applies to every transaction of her own.

Andrew Palumbo - new construction real estate specialist

Andrew is one of the founding members of the My NC Homes team. He specializes in new construction transactions, but also loves helping first-time homebuyers reach their longtime goal of owning their own home.

Becoming a real estate agent was a natural fit for Andrew. Growing up, he loved going to the job site with his father and eventually followed in his footsteps by getting involved in the family’s construction and real estate business. During this time he became a licensed appraiser and general contractor for condominium, luxury homes, and vacation homes. After several blustery winters in Vermont, he and his family moved to the Triangle region in search of a better climate.

successful real estate negotiations

Negotiations can be one of the more uncomfortable aspects of buying or selling real estate, but an experienced real estate agent like Larry Tollen can help you make sense the process and work through it so that both parties come out satisfied. While negotiations are a great time to ask for things like furniture and existing amenities to be left in the house, the process is always a little bit of give and take from the buyer and the seller. It's important to bear in mind that nobody gets exactly what they want, and each party must be willing to give a little.

At My NC Homes, we have been involved with well over a thousand transactions, so we can offer the experience you need to help you successfully get through negotiating the terms and conditions
