Welcome Home, Larry O’Rourke!
Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes REALTOR® Larry O’Rourke to the Laguna Niguel office, located at 27941 La Paz Road, Suite A. Larry earned his license in 2015 and works with buyers and sellers throughout Orange County, specializing in the East Bluff neighborhood where he resides. A Southern California native, Larry is intimately familiar with the enviable lifestyle and exciting communities that comprise the region.
Prior to earning his real estate license, Larry worked in airline sales and logistics where he sharpened client service skills and a passion for helping others. “I offer a personal level of service and treat my clients the way I treat my family,” Larry says. “I love helping others and making a difference in their lives. It is always nice to put a smile on someone’s face after a successful closing.” Working toward accomplishing client goals, Larry always keeps his clients’ interests at the forefront of the real estate process. “I live by the motto ‘don’t make promises you can’t keep.’ Setting expectations and being true to your word help create these positive experiences for clients.”
As a seasoned businessman, Larry understands what it takes to close deals and get the job done for each of his clients. He acknowledges one fundamental ingredient as the key to success in business and offering elite service. “Communication is critical. You have to be able to listen to what your client is telling you, and also pick up on indicators in order to properly diagnose their needs so you can deliver on them. I show my clients the value I offer them by accomplishing their goals and making the process as smooth as possible. This has opened the door to me helping their friends and family with real estate needs because they are happy to refer me based on our experience together.”
Possessing a naturally curious mind, Larry has a passion for learning and is always hungry to add to his knowledgebase and skillset. “I enjoy learning and am eager to pick up new things.” This helps in real estate, and also in his personal time where he is an avid car and airplane enthusiast. He is a member of a Porsche Club, and also earned his pilot’s license. “One of the personal best milestone days of my life was when I went on my first solo flight. It took 30 hours of flying with an instructor, so it was gratifying to go it alone.” Larry and his wife Angela have been married for over 20 years, and have worked side-by-side while also traveling the world together. As a Navy Veteran, Larry is passionate about giving back to active and former military members. “I have kept in touch with veterans I served with, and plan on getting more involved with the local American Legion.”
Bennion Deville Homes is the perfect place for Larry to call home because of the brokerage’s flexibility with agents. “The culture that Bob [Bennion] and Bob [Deville] created is perfect for me. Bennion Deville Homes is agent-friendly, with an accessible, non-competing broker in each office. I can control how I conduct my business and have a choice in the tools I get to use to help my clients and grow my client base,” Larry concludes.
Adds Managing Broker Sandi Richardson, “Larry’s approach to client service, sharp business savvy, and affable personality make him a perfect fit for our Laguna Niguel office family. On behalf of everyone, I would like to welcome Larry and wish him success moving forward.”
