Meet Larry Tuell

There are so many reasons to call Tacoma and Pierce County home. From our close proximity to Mount Rainier, the ocean, and the Puget Sound, and 58 parks in Tacoma alone (it’s true! Check out my Picnics in the Park blog), the list of activities one can do in a given day seems endless. From biking on a scenic trail to hiking through our foothills, or even visiting the Point Defiance Park and Zoo, we Tacomans are truly blessed with an abundance of nature and beauty.

This is why I have spent my 53 years as a resident of this area. And you deserve an agent who is as passionate about Tacoma and Pierce County as I am. In fact, one of the things I love most about real estate is that I get to help buyers and sellers achieve their goals and in many cases, find the perfect property to enjoy all this area has to offer.

If you are looking for an experienced agent who provides that personal touch and attention, I am ready and able to help! Before I changed career courses in 1989, I was a teacher in the Tacoma Public Schools and therefore, approach real estate from the perspective of an educator, working collaboratively with my clients and educating them along the way. How do my clients like this? 91% of my business over the last twenty years has come from referrals indicating my method is welcome and effective.

When not helping clients or out on a bike ride, I am spending time with my family or with my church on a number of adventures. I love sports and activity of all sorts. In fact, I played high school basketball at Henry Foss High School and went on to play college basketball at Skagit Valley Community College and Western Washington University.  However, as soon as I tucked away my graduation robes, I made a beeline back down I-5 where my heart has always been – Tacoma.

So, if you have a goal, a dream, and the desire to make a move, I have the experience and the community knowledge to get the job done. Come see why my tagline is “Experience in Action”.
