Larry received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Alabama, and also graduated from Dale Carnegie Institute. Larry has served on numerous boards, and has years of experience working with insurance companies and covering residential and condominium associations. He is also a trusted source of information for architects, adjusters, roof consultants and homeowner’s associations throughout the Chicagoland and Fox Valley area.
He attributes his business knowledge to his father, and his involvement in the trade at such a young age. Because Larry has seen every aspect of his company in action, he knows how to give customers the quality service they need.
