I often say I’m not in the business of real estate, but in the business of making dreams come true. That doesn’t mean finding houses for a buyer or getting the highest amount of money for the seller. Not exclusively, at least. It’s much more than that: it’s caring for their needs, understanding their anxieties, predicting potential pitfalls and basically looking for ways to make the uncertain process of buying or selling a house not only easier, but more enjoyable. In the end, my goal as a Real Estate Agent is to facilitate things for my clients turning a lengthy and complex transaction into a pleasing memory.

Sure, my marketing abilities come in handy – especially in this ever-changing world with new digital trends popping up daily – but my main strength is my credibility. I’ve been working hard on this asset ever since I got my license. I’m constantly studying the market because when my client asks me something I have to have the correct response at the tip of my tongue. I have not only a fiduciary responsibility to my client but also a moral one. So, transparency is really important in my book because, to me, Real Estate is not only about properties and money. It’s about people. I never take for granted the fact that people are trusting me not with their house or apartment; but their home. I take that responsibility seriously and put on a (fair) fight for them.
Over time I have earned the respect and recognition of this community that I love so much. Together with my family, that’s my most prized possession. A dream come true. Remember I said I was in the business of making dreams come true? Well, I don’t intend on waking up from this one. So you can count on me to make your dream come true because by doing so I'll be living a dream of my own. Let’s dream together!

    We highly recommend Larry Gillikin from Brookstone Realtors. With his expertise, he helped us buy and sell our first home as well as find and buy our second home. He was always available day, night or weekend. Extremely responsive, timely and patient with us. He is knowledgeable of the housing market and of homes themselves. He worked around our very crazy work schedules and made things happen! He was able to coordinate/negotiate the sale of our first home with the move into our second home. He's a friendly and trustworthy family man who gets the job done. He exceeded our expectations, yet again. We are very grateful and will continue to recommend Larry to our friends and family. Matt and Jen Whitmore Lake, MI

    Larry helped us buy a house and was great. Was very patient, always went the extra mile. Must’ve shown us more than 20 houses before we found the right one. Highly recommend.

    Larry is the best! We moved from MD back to MI and found Larry through the Zillow app. I cold called him and we hit it off immediately. He lived in the area in which we were looking and we soon found ourselves house hunting. Larry is polite, honest and answers every phone call and email within minutes. Not only did I use Larry for our new 'forever' home, I recommended him to my sister, when she moved to MI from GA. Definitely recommend!

    I cant say enough good things about Larry! As a first time home buyer, my fiancee and I were overwhelmed and had no idea where to even start. Larry was responsive, patient and throughout with us when we physically visited nearly 30 houses in a 4 month time span before purchasing our first home. Larry spent countless hours on us, late nights and early mornings. I am a night shift nurse and Larry was always willing to work with my crazy schedule, no matter what time I was able to see a home. Larry impressed everyone in my family, including my dad who has bought and sold realty most of his life. All in all, Larry was beyond what any home buyer could ask for and made our first home buying experience better than ever anticipated.

    Larry is the best of the best. Knowledgeable, compassionate, patient, and truly has only the best interest of his clients in the forefront of his mind. He treats his clients like family and I will always call Larry when I need real estate guidance!

    Larry's expertise is apparent in every step of the process. We were confident with him at our side as he would point out pros and cons, and warn us of potential issues with the homes we toured. He is not just trying to sell you a house, he is helping you decide which home is right for you and your family. A joy to be around and great at responding. Very flexible.

    Larry made a potentially stressful experience of selling our home very comfortable, simple and stress free! From early discussion before listing to SOLD and closing, Larry was extremely knowledgeable, timely, courteous and communicated regularly with us. We are very happy we choose Larry and his team to get our home sold fast! Multiple offers after 1 day.

    First of all thank you Larry for all the leg-work and knowledge you provided during our search for a new home. Since this was our first home, we had many questions (many dumb questions), but you answered them with your deep knowledge and quick humor. Very easy to work with and will point out not only the good points, but also points I would have missed in making my decision. Never pushy and always looking out for our best interest. My wife and I will be moving in shortly to our new home and you are welcome there any time as part of the family. Thank you again.

    Larry is an incredible real estate agent who kept us informed every step of the process. First, he kept us well informed on what was coming onto the market with regular e-mails and calls, and quickly arranging showings. Once we found a house, Larry did everything he could to help us through our purchase. We are doing an addition, and Larry went above and beyond the call of duty to work with our lender, builder, insurer, and help us get through a challenging process. He kept us informed about our loan better than our lender, helped us find inspectors, and negotiated every last detail with the seller including some repairs that were needed. Due to his strong communication, good negotiation skills, and addition to detail, I would strongly recommend Larry for any buyer looking for a new home.

    Larry did a great job facilitating my recent home purchase. His response time was very quick and there weren't any unanswered questions/concerns on my end. From the date of my initial offer through the signing everything went smooth without issue.
