Larry says that he was destined for real estate through his last name. The last name Gilliland literally means “man of the land” and his forefathers managed land for centuries before coming to the United States in the early 1700’s. They have been entrepreneurs, land owners and business men ever since.
In 2006, Larry started his first real estate firm, Red Dot Realty. The same year Steven Dotson sold out of his construction and development company, and over lunch one day, they decided to form Red Realty. Red Realty started shortly thereafter with a 3rd partner, James Yates, and a fourth partner, John Goodman, joined the firm and made it complete. Red Realty opened up with three offices in their first 6 months and has been growing steadily since.
Larry is the Principal Broker and Vice President of Red Realty. He helps to manage daily operations and loves to roll up his sleeves to help the agents and clients to reach their goals. The success of Red Realty is due to its agent’s passion for integrity and hunger to do the right thing, for the client, at all times. They are extremely selective over any agent that they hire for the company. In fact, its agents are involved in hiring directly through the company’s business model. It’s based on the premise that great agents want great agents to work with them. Larry is one of those great agents.
Larry specializes in investment, commercial, residential, construction and development. He is Vice President of Barry Homes, LLC and manages other investment corporations as well. One of his primary strengths is working with asset managers and investors. One of his greatest strengths is working with people!
For residential real estate, he sold over 500 homes before he ever did his first commercial deal. For auctions, he regularly attends or is involved in at least 3 auctions a week. He stays active in all areas in his market and can help you achieve your goals in nearly every situation.
His motto: simple. “It’s your money. Hire the right person to get the job done.”
Those that hire Larry are definitely glad they did!
Gilliland is committed to building the local Church and community. He loves to work, but he loves his family even more, as they are his greatest achievement. Larry is married to a beautiful, Proverbs 31 wife, Alissa Gilliland. The couple has four children: 2 girls and 2 boys.
