A New Real Estate Alternative in the Hudson Valley and the Catskills
Lawrence O’Toole Realty came about in a challenging market with a huge amount of property inventory where the need for better personal service became very obvious.
Principal broker Larry O’Toole brings a wealth of brokerage experience from the 10 years he spent with a national real-estate company where he was the top producer in his company for five straight years running.
Larry came to Ulster County in 1994 to buy a second home, but he loved it so much that the house he bought in Woodstock (once lived in by Ringo Starr and local legend Levon Helm) became a primary residence instead. Always one to explore, he moved on to a waterfront property in Shandaken, then later to Kingston, and finally to Hurley, where he now lives in a completely charming stone house.
Earlier on he had a 20 year career in journalism when he wrote for the New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, GQ, and Travel & Leisure, among many other publications. He has also published a memoir entitled Heart’s Longing: Newfoundland, New York and the Distance Home.
As a new real estate alternative in the Hudson Valley, Lawrence O’Toole believes in running a company that gives back. (See our Statement of Purpose on out home page.) For sellers paying a full commission and for buyers in a transaction where a full commission is paid, Lawrence O’Toole Realty will write a check for 5% of the commission to the registered charity of the seller’s and buyer’s choice, whether it be the Catskill Animal Sanctuary or Family of Woodstock or an international organization of your choice.
This is how we like to do business.
We look forward to working with you and for you.
