We had three different agents (at different times) try to sell our house, and Valerie was by far the best. The other agents seemed like they would be available and committed to getting our house sold, but only Valerie actually came through. She was attentive, energetic, and professional through the whole process, and always proved to be reliable and available to help on everything we needed. We would absolutely work with her again.
Over the last four years, I have purchased or sold 3 different houses. All very unique and in different areas of town. The only common thread was my realtor, Larry Story of Total Care Realty. This man is simply amazing! He always went above and beyond to ensure my needs or mine and my husband’s needs, were being met above all else! His motto should be “Clients first. Clients Always”. Larry and his team of professionals are in a class by themselves! So, if you are looking to buy or sell a home, I highly recommend this superior realty company!

Larry is wonderful! He goes above and beyond what a realtor would be expected to do! I still contact him for little “house” details, and he is always more than willing to help. This was my first home, and Larry made the home buying process go very smoothly. I would highly recommend Larry to anyone looking to purchase a home!
Larry Story is the top realtor in the region- professional, aggressive, comprehensive, and never loses site of the goal. We ran into speedbumps at every corner and, despite me being inaccessible due to work and travel, he handled it all with 3 possible solutions for everything. I would totally recommend Larry Story and Total Care Realty

We want to thank you for your assistance in finding and purchasing our new home 8409 Lilly’s Court. Actually the word “assistance” is a gross understatement of the value you have provided us in our relocation to Greensboro, NC. It is much more accurate to say that without your guidance and seemingly tireless effort, we would have ended up renting an apartment rather than ending up in our dream home.
We are amazed at the level of service you provided as our realtor. You helped us find and purchase a home under very challenging time constraints and conditions and your success is a testament to your character and work ethic on behalf of your clients. You were patient and understanding with our naiveté as first time home buyers. You kept us informed and realistic through the process; and calm and focused when we showed signs of becoming stressed or frustrated. Your guidance through the process and work on our behalf: the negotiation, finding the right lender, home inspection, appraisal, and every detail (large and small) of our process was invaluable. Even after the purchase you have been our advocate helping us or accomplishing the things to make the transition to our new home a pleasant experience. Short of actually packing and moving our belongings I don’t think you could have extended yourself any more than you have.
The service you provided reached far beyond any expectation we might have had. I don’t think that “full service” or “personal service” even come close; it was more like having a “personal concierge realtor”. In addition to admiring and appreciating your ethic and dedication, we feel that you have become a trusted friend.
Larry, it goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) that you are top notch in our book and that we would recommend you as a realtor to anyone looking for someone dedicated to the success, satisfaction and service of their clients. In our book, you are the only realtor to use and a great person as well!

It is now official. Our previous townhouse has gone under contract. It took a whopping four days to sell. Our agent, Larry Story has done an awesome job with everything he has done for us. He helped us to acquire our current home and to sell our previous townhouse in record time. Thanks Larry.
Larry Story has helped our family purchase two properties and sell one. He walked us patiently through every step of the process. He was vigilant, thorough, and observant of our needs. We highly recommend Larry for real estate purchase and/or sale.

We had the pleasure of working with Larry on the purchase of our home. He was absolutely phenomenal!!! He took care of us from out of state and when I say he showed us houses in every neighborhood in the Greensboro area, it is not a lie. He is incredibly patient, thorough and is dedicated to the service of his clients. He somehow found and then negotiated the purchase of our dream home. He has also been there since the purchase of our home. He is an amazing realtor and we are proud to call him a friend. He IS the realtor you want to go with in the triad!!!!
Dr. April Palumbo-Rasch
What a phenomenal experience!!! Larry Story and his staff were by outside and at our call during our ENTIRE buying experience. Top notch!!!
The name “Total Care” says it all. Larry Story is the epitome of what all agents should strive for. With his help we found our dream retirement home and closed all within two and a half weeks! Being 5 states away we could not have done it without all of Larry’s hard work! Thank you!
Our experience with Total Care Realty (TCR) could not have been better. Prior to using TCR we screened several local real estate professionals and found that based on knowledge, communication, sophistication and professionalism, Larry was by far the best person for the job. Larry has an in-depth and contemporary knowledge of every facet of the real estate market. Larry’s advertising, website and online savvy were impressive and highly effective. The Total Care Realty yard signs and open house signs were unique and equally impressive. Larry always went above and beyond in keeping us informed. Larry continuously put forth sound ideas, thoughtful strategies and focused effort. We can’t say enough about working with TCR other than, SOLD! With five house on the market on one block, thanks to Larry, our house SOLD! We enthusiastically recommend Larry and the TCR team for any real Estate Transaction. Thanks again Larry! The Johnson’s.
Larry was wonderful to work with selling our old home and buying our new one. He gave us great advice on how to price and stage our house, and it was sold in 3 weeks. He was available to answer any and all questions we had throughout the process and was very patient when searching for our new house. On top of that he was just a pleasure to work with.

Mr. Story was our agent when we purchased a home in 2013. He was very helpful and patient with us as we looked for a home that met our needs at a price we could afford . He went above and beyond what we expected, even doing some things that were not really his job. We put our old house on the market in June of this year. It sold in less than three months even though it was not in a desirable location. We got a good price with his help in the negotiations. We would recommend Mr. Story to anyone who needs an agent.
I met Larry Story while looking to purchase a home in Greensboro during May, 2010. I have a strong background in real estate but soon came to realize that under the current market conditions, I needed the help of a local expert. Larry represented me as the buyer’s agent. I wanted the option of purchasing a bank repo, foreclosure, FSBO, or conventional home. Larry is very familiar with the process that goes into negotiating for distressed homes and in July, 2010, I closed escrow on a bank repo. During the last four years, I have lived in my home while remodeling and upgrading it. In August, 2014, I listed my home for sale and Larry Story was my exclusive seller’s agent. By early November, 2014, we closed escrow and the house sold for the full asking price. Thanks Larry!
Larry is not only professional, he is also friendly and very helpful. This was our first home buying experience, and Larry made it an enjoyable one. He also helped with selling our existing home. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an agent that always puts his clients interests at the top of his list.

Our experience with Larry Story was more than we could have ever asked for. We put him in a very hard situation and asked so much of him. We needed a home fast. Our rental agreement was up and it had been the ultimate nightmare. Our girls were getting ready to start school and our two older children were in college back in Ohio. We had no time to find the perfect home. Just something that we could make work and kept our girls in good schools. Larry not only found us a home in the area we wanted but also made sure it was move in ready. We were able to get everyone where they needed to be and unpacked in three weeks time. It was amazing how he was on top of everything. He pushed and made things happen in days time that would have normally taken weeks or months. Because of Larry we are in a home that we are growing to love. He went above and beyond for strangers. Should we ever sell or look for another home we will only work with Larry. He was fair and honest even when we did not want to hear it. This was our fourth purchase and it was by far the easiest and best investment yet. We ALL love Larry, even our Great Dane Bishop!
Thank you so much for all your help in finding our home here in North Carolina. you exceeded our expectations of a real estate agent. From picking us up at the airport to closing on the house out of state, and everything in between you were always there to make things as easy as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding when it came to working with us as first time home buyers. You had lots of valuable information to share about homes and different neighborhoods. We truely felt that you were working in our best interest.
Moving out of state is never an easy task, especially with a newborn, but with your help the transition was very smooth.
We will absolutely use you again if/when we are in need of another real estate agent and we will highly recommend you to any friends or family.

I wanted to take a minute to tell you how much my husband and I appreciate Elyse Tafeen. She recently sold our Jamestown property for us and she was wonderful!
She staged our home perfectly! Every time it showed, the realtor commented on beautiful it was. She put her touch in every room, added all kinds of decorative flowers, plates and chachkies that made our home warm and inviting.
Her professionalism is unsurpassed. She communicated to us all the things we needed to do to sell the property. We complied on every detail. The information booklets were beautiful, as were the photos of the house. And she kept them stocked!
It was a pleasure doing business with your company. Elyse surely represents the best you have to offer. We sold our home in 6 weeks for an excellent price.
