Re/Max Bay Islands Real Estate
Reviews of Broker Larry Schlesser
My wife and I fell in love with the island of Roatan and West Bay beach when we had our wedding there in 2013. When we made the choice to invest in a lot near the beach, Larry Schlesser was our knowledgeable guide. His professionalism, honesty and responsiveness put me at ease making an investment on the island. He patiently explained all of the idiosyncrasies of purchasing land in Honduras and assisted me with making an informed purchase, which we orchestrated entirely remotely via phone calls and email! Communication is where Larry shines, he always has the time to take your call or reply to your email and give you the insider perspective on how things work on the island. Because of this, when the time came to send the money for the purchase, Larry and his staff had everything taken care of and I was confident I was making a great investment for my family’s future.Sean and Rosa Cogley (2014)
Investing in either a first or second property is a huge investment decision, more so when that property is located outside of your principal country of residence. When my wife and I made the decision to invest in Roatan we contacted Larry with REMAX. Larry went over our criteria with us, location, type of property and budget. After a couple of trips without finding something that met our wish list, we were about to give up. Larry did not. We are now extremely happy owners of a property that fits all of our wants.
Working with Larry we got to know him quite well. Larry is efficient, friendly and helpful and it doesn’t matter if it is a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, Larry responded to all of our questions. Larry´s service doesn’t stop after closing, he is there to help with the transition from the smallest item to the biggest.
In addition to our acquiring our dream in Roatan, we have made a new friend. If you don’t go to Larry at REMAX first, you are probably wasting your time.

“In 2012 my wife and I decided we wanted to buy a piece of “Paradise” (Roatan) for investment purposes and to have our own place to stay when visiting the island. Our main concern was who we wanted to work with in the process. After much research via phone, internet and word-of-mouth, we decided to contact Larry Schlesser and we couldn’t have made a better decision. Larry took the time to explain the benefits and shortcomings of various properties on the island regardless of price. We not only bought a small beach condo for investment purposes, less than a year later we purchased our retirement condo on the island from Larry as well. Larry and his excellent office staff have made our Roatan real estate experience a pleasure.”

I have known Larry Schlesser since 2001 as a very capable and honest real estate broker. What separates Larry and his company from the competition is their integrity. I have purchased properties on Roatan through Larry and his Roatan real estate company and recommend them to anyone interested in a capable and honest broker. My future purchases will be through his RE/MAX Bay Islands real estate business.

I have been visiting Roatan for about 17 years, and purchased a property (beautiful) about 1997. I have dealt with four different realtors and am familiar with most of the brokers on Roatan. There are substantial differences between realtors, and I don’t want to dwell on negatives. Larry Schlesser and his staff are equal to the best Brokers and required standards in the US. I listed my property 4 times and the listing with Remax was painless, and profitable, to say the least. If you are looking, buying or selling, you WILL have problems with anyone other than Remax, as I found with the numerous serious problems with the other Brokers including the original way I held title, as Larry found, and fixed, such that I could sell the property. I highly recommend Larry and his staff even if you are looking for a rental, condo, or purchase. Should anyone wish to contact me direct to discuss my experience, Larry can furnish my phone # and/or e-mail address.
It is nice to be able to trust a person on the Island, not that others are crooks, but just not knowledgeable concerning a serious investment with your money. I DON’T WRITE MANY OF THESE, BUT I VOLUNTEERED TO THIS AFTER AN IMPRESSIVE AND SHORT CLOSE.THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL FOR THESE REASONS, AND I HAVE MONEY IN MY POCKET. Please thank your staff and the attorney for their professionalism.
