There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Valdosta, GA.

In Feb 15, we put our Valdosta home up for sale with another real estate company. Six months & $8,000.00 later the house had only been shown twice. In Aug 15, when that contract expired, we contracted with yet another real estate company. As of Jan 16, we had spent another $12,000.00 in various  renovations to suit the new real estate agent; however, we still hadn't received any offers on the house which had only been shown three times. On 14 Jan 16, my wife traveled to Valdosta to check on the house and do some cleaning. Upon opening the garage door she observed that the sheetrock was soaking wet, the ceilings in the    storage & laundry rooms were soaked and falling down. One wall in the kitchen & two in the MBR were soaked & the kitchen & laundry room cabinets were soaked & moldy. Since we had the required insurance - a vacant home policy - we weren't covered for the $18,000.00 required to make repairs. Of course, we were devastated & angry. We immediately fired the listing agent, took the house off of the market & began demolition & reconstruction. 

Three weeks later, on 5 Mar 16, a friend recommended I contact USAF Chief Master Sergeant (ret.) Larry Mercer - real estate broker with 20 years of experience working for Herndon Realty in Valdosta. As a 30 year USAF veteran I knew immediately that Larry would be an aggressive, results-oriented person. 

On 6 Mar 16, Larry advised he had identified a serious prospective buyer!

On 7 Mar 16, we signed a listing contract with Herndon Realty with Larry Mercer as our agent. Later that same day, we received an offer on the house & signed a counteroffer to the prospective buyers Larry had identified the day before! The counteroffer was accepted & signed that day despite the fact that construction wasn't scheduled to be completed until 11 March.

On 12 Mar 16, the buyers moved into our house & rented the property until final closing on 25 Mar 16.

What a remarkable experience! Just to summarize, our house was on the market for 12 months & only shown a handful of times before I made contact with Larry. And just 18 days after signing a listing agreement with Herndon/Larry Mercer, we closed the sale of our house. It took all of 49 minutes after closing our proceeds were deposited into our bank account!

Throughout  the process, Larry was incredibly empathetic, patient, & professional. Of course, I expected no less from a retired Chief & would recommend Larry & Herndon Realty to any of my closest friends & family who might need real estate services.! Many thanks Larry - you are definitely the best of the best!L

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Valdosta, GA.

My family and I recently moved to Valdosta, GA from Virginia.  We were put in touch with Larry through a military move system and we could not have been happier with the choice.  Larry has been in this business for quite a while and knows Valdosta and the surrounding area like the back of his hand. My wife and I had very strict needs in our retirement home and Larry was confident that he could find us the perfect place. His diligence and knowledge of the market in Valdosta ensured that we got to see the "latest and greatest" homes that met our needs as they came on the market. He was available at all times of the day and night to answer questions and we had a ton of them! Thanks to Larry, we now have the home of our dreams and look to spend our retirement years there. But, if we needed to move again, we would make Larry our first call.

Larry was wonderful to work with. When we were looking for our house, he was always very honest with us and gave us his true opinions. He is very knowledgeable about all types of house construction issues, which helped us to know we were getting a great house!

With decades of experience, Larry knows the area and his fellow agents extraordinarily well.  He's an expert at the process and provided sound negotiating advice.  We don't live in Valdosta and were inexperienced at selling a home and Larry was remarkably responsive every time we asked a question  or needed assistance.  We would highly recommend Larry Mercer to anyone buying or selling a house in the Valdosta area.

My agent Larry Mercer was the calming force during my rental house purchase!  He constantly stayed in touch, responded very promptly and lead the way during the entire process.  Would definitely use him again for a future purchase.

Larry Mercer was our agent through a very (very) long process when we bought our short sale. After 10 months, it is finally ours! Larry fought for us and never 

gave up.

Mr. Larry Mercer was highly recommended to my wife and I by my sister and brother-in law whom he worked with a few years back in purchasing a beautiful home on five acres.  They had nothing but great things to say about his work.  After working with him to purchase our home we both agree with them.  We are now in a beautiful home in a great neighborhood. He was a man of integrity, very detailed, knowledgeable, professional, and was always there when needed even when we continued going back an forth in our decision making process.  He walked us through each processing step regardless of us already having knowledge of it or not.  He continued to follow-up after closing to see how things was going. I will highly recommend anyone in search of a home to contact Larry Mercer at The Herndon Company.
