I want to thank you so much for your assistance during this process. As you know, I love my home, and it was not an easy decision for me to sell it. Your assistance, kindness and integrity at every step of the process has been invaluable to me and I have recommended your services to other members of my family who are looking at selling some real estate. My best. Dianne

Hi Larry. I just wanted to thank you for the great service and knowledge you provided us with finding our perfect home. The time you spent with us was enjoyable. The knowledge you had to lead us in the right direction of finding a 100% financing mortgage was great. We couldn’t have done it without you. You made the first time home buying an easy, laid back, and enjoyable experience for us. Thank you again, Katie and James

"Larry was very kind and patient with us and our five children. He spent countless hours helping us every step of the way. It didn't matter if it was a weekend or weekday, daytime or evening he was available to us anytime we needed him. He was very informative and knew the answers to all of our questions and was always happy to help. If you want an agent that knows his business inside and out, who is available to help all the time and is just a genuinely great guy, Larry Matthews is your man! Thank you Larry for helping find our family a great home!" Thanks Veronica

FROM ALBERTA Kevin and Melissa We have had the best experience with Larry as our agent for selling our home in Nova Scotia. Having to go to a new career in Alberta right away, we were not able to sell before leaving. This was very nerve wracking being so far away, but Larry was very reassuring and really looked after the house for us. He goes above and beyond what you would ever expect to help you through the situation. Very knowledgeable and well known to many people, he will point you in the right direction for whatever you need and he is always available, even with a three hour time difference. If you are looking to buy or sell, talk to Larry. Honest, reliable and will tell you how it really is (no fluff). He even went to our house and swept the floors. We cannot thank you enough for all of your efforts Larry!! Most sincere regards, Kevin and Melissa
Tracy From Alberta
FROM ALBERTA We decided to move home from Alberta, but my husband had to stay behind for work so myself and our two small girls came home. Moving is hard, it's even harder when you have to make all the choices by yourself. Thankfully we had Larry to help us, he went above and beyond for us. The first day he drove about an hour to pick us up to view homes. If you have small kids you know this means car seats and stops for bathroom breaks! He was so patient with everything. When it came to looking at the homes he was great at pointing out things that I may have missed, a man's view. He always gave me his honest opinion and excellent advice. I am very grateful for his help, and we love the home we chose. Tracy.

After full and challenging careers, my wife and I have reached a stage in our lives where we wish to spend winters in the city and summers by the ocean in Nova Scotia. After searching for more than four years for a summer property we were not successful and despaired of our future chances. Our real estate broker was Larry Matthews of Hants Realty Limited and throughout this time, Larry continued to search for a suitable property for our family. This year Larry identified an ocean property to us which was exactly what we had been seeking. We are delighted with our purchase and are very grateful for Larry’s extensive experience in Nova Scotia real estate, for his clear understanding of what we were seeking, and for his persistent dedication of time and effort to achieve such a successful outcome. We have great respect for Larry’s skill, integrity, and great belief in helping people realize their dreams. Without hesitation, we would unconditionally recommend Larry’s services for anyone who is on a search such as we have been, and which ended so well for us. The Willis Family, Ottawa

As members of the RCMP transferring away from the area we were so pleased to have Larry help us with a very quick and smooth sale of our home. We have actually transferred quite a few times over the course of our career and can say that this experience was by far the best thus far. Larry is obviously well known in the community with many contacts. As well he advertised our home abundantly using the most of today's technology. Larry was easy to contact and was also available to us anytime, we met with him during the evenings and weekends at times and he never had a problem with this. We really do appreciate Larry's assistance with selling our home and would definitely recommend him to anyone wishing to sell or purchase a home. Thanks Larry! Marcel and Olivia
