About Me
Life’s transitions, such as buying or selling a house, can be both stressful and exciting. When you sell your house, you are cashing in on what might be your greatest investment. If you are buying a house, you are looking for the perfect place to become your home. My goal is to make sure that this transition goes as smoothly as possible. The most important thing I can do as your Realtor®, is to understand your needs, wants, and visions.

If you are thinking about buying your first home, you undoubtedly have a ton of questions. How much can I afford? Once I know what I want, how do I find homes to look at? When I visit a home, what things should I be looking for that might be a concern? When I find the home I want, how do I make an offer and how much should I offer? Oh my gosh! I have a contract to buy a home, now what do I do?????

I love to help first time home buyers understand the process and guide
them through it. Just call or email me if you would like more information
on buying your first home!

Selling your home can generate just as many question.  What is it worth?  What would I have to do to get ready to sell? How long will it take.  How can we show my home and still live in it?  
I have a BS in Biology from Bridgewater College in Virginia and a Masters in Liberal Studies from Duke University. I have lived in the Durham area for the past 33 years. I am active in the community, serving meals at the Durham Homeless shelter and starting a summer camp for high school youth to repair and renovate homes for families or individuals who needed a little help. I also, coach youth soccer and worked as a Youth Director at a church in Durham. In short, I love Durham and the Triangle. It is a great place to live and a great place to raise a family. It is important to me to do what I can to make it better. I became a Realtor® because I really enjoy helping people.
The Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill area is a wonderfully diverse and
dynamic place to live. There is something here for everyone. For the sports
fan, we are about 2 ½ hours from the NFL’s Carolina Panthers, Raleigh hosts the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes, Durham has the historic Durham Bulls, a minor-league baseball team with a great following. In addition, we have tremendous college sports teams. For the arts and music lovers, we have several world class concert venues, which host everything from the NC Symphony, Country, Rock, Bluegrass and Blues performances and festivals. The state art museum in Raleigh hosts exhibits. In about 3 hours you can either be skiing down a slope in the Blue Ridge Mountains, soaking your feet in the Atlantic Ocean, or simply enjoying a quiet walk in one of our local state parks. The Triangle is a wonderful place to make your home!

Larry was a great realtor for first-time home buyers; he met with us to explain the process before we even signed him on as our realtor. He was able to line up house tours in a timely fashion and was able to negotiate the purchase efficiently. I would certainly recommend him to any couple looking to purchase a home in the Raleigh-Durham area.

Larry is the best realtor I've ever experienced. He took the time to really listen and pay attention to my preferences (which has been numerous). He has gone out of his way to check out houses for me, that I've shown in interest in, in order to save me from having to drive an hour and a half to two hours one way, from my place of residence, to my areas of interest which have been Chapel Hill and or Durham areas. He is patient, kind, and thoughtful. These qualities are like non other that I've ever experienced before, in previous experiences with other realtors. His focus, clearly is with his client being happy and satisfied Vs. being just a salesperson. Thank you, Larry. I am grateful, appreciative, and feel blessed for knowing you.


Larry is very friendly and professional. He is very quick in responding to my emails and messages, arranging for viewings, drafting offers, and going through the closing steps with me. I appreciate his service and trust him very much.

Larry is awesome! He was prompt, helpful, and informed about all the houses we saw and questions we had for him. The guy even climbed up to check the attic. Amazing support and we ended up developing a good friendship.

Larry Hawkey was responsive and kind. He taught me tons about the real estate process from being a novice to closing. Personal attention and detail orientation were both present in heaps. We were a good team and with his help we made lots of tight deadlines and made tough decisions in a hot real estate market.

He was a great help every step of the way. I learned a great deal about the home buying process which I was largely ignorant of beforehand. He was always available during tight deadlines and alerted me quickly to snags before I got caught up in them. He was personable and provided the right kind of help without being overbearing. I am glad that I found Larry for my first home buying experience!

We have known Larry for 30 years and have counted him a friend of our family. We know he will help you find the right house. He is honest, trustworthy and very dedicated. For many years he worked with our children as their youth leader. He is a creative problem solver.
