About

Who Is Larry Halpin?
I’m a successful, career Realtor with Downing-Frye Realty, Inc. the largest real estate broker in Naples Florida Real Estate.   I have been a full time Realtor in the Naples real estate market as well as the Bonita real estate market since 1994.

How can I help you find the right home in Southwest Florida?
Your email or phone requests will receive my quick personal reply and provide you with an abundance of pertinent information about the real estate listings and properties you are searching for.  One of my primary attributes as a full time Realtor is that I make very effort to respond very quickly to all requests for assistance.  I am so dependable in this regard that should I not respond quickly, you know that something outside of my control has happened.  In the rare occasion that this happens, my clients know to contact me again.

How am I different from other agents in Southwest Florida?
Resources combined with imagination and a Mid-western work ethic prompts clients to think of me as “… a different type of Realtor”.

Clients consider me a primary source of information on the following high-value categories:

- Waterfront properties on water or with Gulf access. Your boat can be as close as your car or mail box.

- Upscale planned residential communities with an emphasis on golf and tennis. The golf can be either initiation / equity or bundled / equity.  Most are gated communities.

- Beach access.

Who does Larry Halpin represent in the sales process?
If you were the buyer, I can provide you information and show you available properties / areas that meet your ‘specs’ as either a Buyer’s Agent or a Transaction Broker. If you were the seller, I would be either the sellers agent or the transaction broker. Florida law requires me to disclose our business relationship at the first opportunity. It’s comforting for you to know that I have no affiliation with any builder / developer or community.

MY COMPANY-DOWNING-FRYE REALTY, Inc
Downing-Frye Realty, Inc. (DNFR) is the largest real estate company in SW Florida with over 700 Realtors in just two offices. DNFR is also the largest company in SW Florida with regard to number of transactions annually as well as dollar volume. DNFR is privately owned and not part of a large national firm.

While DNFR agents cover an area from Marco Island up through Ft. Myers, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres and Punta Gorda … Sanibel and Captiva, my specific areas of expertise would include ONLY Naples, Bonita Springs and Estero. The Naples / Bonita / Estero areas are very different from Ft. Myers, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres and Punta Gorda; there is no comparison. Should you have interest in areas in which I am not knowledgeable, I will be more than happy to introduce you to someone who specializes in those other areas.

Downing-Frye Realty has been named the winner of the Naples Daily News Choice Awards for Best Real Estate Company in SW Florida for each of the 8 years this award has been in existence, a remarkable accomplishment.

Please contact me if I can be of any assistance.
