Print Agent Bio

I'm not the highest producing Realtor at The Hasson Company, but I pride myself in the superior service I give my clients and the fact that they continue to refer me long after their sale or purchase.  That's the greatest compliment one can receive.


 As far as my life story, it's been varied and unique.  Born in Detroit, Michigan, raised in Los Angeles, I attended Glendale High School and the University of Southern California.  That's the boring part.


Then, I started a broadcast career that went from the smallest radio station in California, to the smallest TV station in the United States in Glendale, Montana.

I had the pleasure of working in radio and television for nearly 20 years, most of that time in the Northwest.  I met my wife, Tracy Barry, when we were hired to co-anchor the news at a TV station in Pocatello, Idaho.  Now, it's starting to get interesting.


I hosted a game show in Portland on KGW-TV, Channel 8 for three years.  The show was called “On The Spot” and featured nearly 3,000 local contestants. Prizes included trips, cars and lot's of cash.  One of the parting gifts was an "On The Spot" umbrella that many contestants cherish to this day.  It's also pretty useful around here.


After the game show, I produced a PBS documentary in cooperation with a Russian movie producer about Igor Sikorsky, the inventor of the helicopter.  Tracy and I traveled to Russia to complete the documentary during the collapse of the former Soviet Union.  That was an exciting time.


After television, I went to work for Peter Jacobsen Productions where I was responsible for sponsorship sales for The Fred Meyer Challenge and numerous other golf tournaments that our company produced.  During that time, I had the opportunity to meet many of the legends in the world of golf.


Between 1998 and 2002, Tracy and I adopted to little girls from China.  They are growing up at lightning speed, with mom and dad admiring them every step of the way.


In 2005, I changed careers in order to avoid the travel of the sports marketing business.  Extra time with my family was a priority and I had the good fortune to join the Hasson Company as a full-time Realtor.  It was one of the best choices I've made in my life.  This is a company that focuses on quality and expertise.  It is a company I am proud to represent.

Please let me know if I can be of service.  My all-the-time number is 503-704-3793.

"Overall, with your experience and expertise you made the home buying experience comfortable and pleasant for the first time home buyers such as us. We would be more than happy to recommend you to our friends when they have a need to buy or sell their home. Needless to say you are our man to go for all our real estate needs in future!"

— PBake

"Thank you. You were always available to answer our queries and never left anything unanswered. Also what we liked about you is whatever you did not know you would say that upfront".

— ST

"We are kind of settled in our new home and we are very thankful to you for helping us buy our dream home. It was a great experience overall! The biggest difference between you and the previous agents we have worked with so far was your patience and enthusiasm for showing us every new property. We were always used to get pushed from the agents for finalizing the house but instead what we heard from you was ‘ we are not in hurry’ . That was a pleasant surprise for both of us".

— S & P

Thank YOU for being so great to work with. We heard from the buyer's just after closing (including a really cute selfie of the two of them) - they seem so happy. We couldn't be more thrilled for such kind people to get the home they've been searching for. And in the meantime, we've made some new wonderful friends! This was such a nice, smooth transaction on both sides. Thank you again and congratulations!

— Pam

Larry was great to work with as our buying agent when our family relocated to Portland. He was always accessible and quick to respond to our questions. Larry was a professional, business-savvy partner and advocate for us throughout the entire process of buying our home. He did a lot of work on our behalf exploring homes since we were not living in Portland at the time and he was extremely helpful when we finally came to town for our official house hunt. Larry's experience and commitment to excellence in his work was obvious from day one. We're grateful we had the opportunity to work with Larry and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Portland area.

— Michael & Michelle
