    Larry Turner was an excellent real estate agent. He was very professional, efficient, approachable, and he helped us to keep holding on to hope when we were seeing homes and experiencing bidding wars. Although as buyers, we did not pay his commission, I believe he is worth every cent. He has really earned a stellar reputation for himself and is connected in ways that are very helpful to his clients. When we were under contract, he knew of really excellent contractors (a mason, an inspector, roofer, etc) who we could ask questions to and get quotes from when trying to negotiate during the due diligence period. Karla, his assistant, was top notch. I know Larry is extremely busy due to the volume of business he generates, and Karla was always at hand to help us get answers we needed. She is very personable, professional, and kind. I would totally trust Larry Turner with any future purchases (although we hope we are in our "forever home" at this point)! ~ Courtney and Darren Lucas, Lake Charles, LA
    From start to finish, even after under contract, they were extremely helpful and had answers for every question. ~ Jon N
    We have been working with Larry Turner for the past 21 years! Enough said. ~ M.C.
    Larry worked with me on the sell of multiple homes with this one involving the most "extra" effort on his part. He was positive, helpful, and communicating well through every step no matter what. He cared about what was best for our family through the entire process and not just commission. I would never use a different realtor. ~ Amber Seal, Lake Charles
    Larry makes his clients feel like they're the only ones, as he is so attentive and patient. He is knowledgeable, helpful, and took good care of us. Larry is always our top pick for our real estate needs. ~ Holly & Nick Peterson, Lake Charles
    Moving can be stressful filled with intense emotions, so we really appreciate how Larry Turner managed to alleviate the most stressful moments, and turned it into unexpected enjoyable experience for our family. ~ John B., Lake Charles
    Im pleased to be able to share my opinion on how important Larry Turner and his associate, Karla, were to me in the sale of my townhouse recently. Bessette Realty is fortunate to have such valuable staff! Larry has represented us in buying and in selling other properties in the past, and has always been knowledgeable, caring, and professional. His on-target advice and well-organized advertising and Karlas attention to detail were important keys to this successful sale. I am highly satisfied with the overall experience and would be happy to refer his services to anyone needing a realtor. Dr. Judy Gardiner ~ Dr Judy Gardiner, Lake Charles, LA
    Larry goes above and beyond for his clients, his attention to detail is truly mind boggling. You feel like you have a friend by your side through the whole process. The bonus is that you gain a friend for life through the experience. After losing our home in the catastrophe that was the 2020 hurricane season, Larry gave us hope and a light at the end of an unimaginable tunnel. Larry is so successful in what he does not because of the beautiful homes that he lists but because of the attention, commitment and GRIT that he puts into each client relationship!. There is no one else in SWLA that I would entrust with my future home buying or selling needs then Larry and Karla. Karla is amazing! She truly keeps the train rolling and is an integral component of all the whole process. Larry is so fortunate to have her by his side. Their brotherly sisterly love and banter make the whole process more fun and less stressful. ~ Rachel and Skeet Owens
    Larry and Karla were excellent and instrumental in selling our home! Larry negotiated the sale and Karla kept everything moving right along. Will most certainly recommend them and use them again! ~ Julie Lee
    They handled everything and kept us informed of showings and all things going on with our property. Very happy with our sale. ~ Betty Quibodeaux. Lake Charles, LA

As a retired teacher, I give Larry Turner a grade of A+++++++! Thank you for asking for my input My husband and I were incredibly pleased with every aspect of the sale of our home.

I have no complaints about anything. The service and the professionalism are impeccable. Larry Turner makes people feel safe about the ins and outs of selling. He has a personality that is caring, friendly and PROFESSIONAL. ~ LINDA LEBERT CORBELLO LAKE CHARLES, LA
    Larry Turner made sure that my husband and I got the perfect home that we wanted. He gave us all of the resources needed to find our home and secured it for us. He made sure that we werent settling for homes that were anything less than what we truly wanted. And honestly, Im so thankful for him and so glad he helped us find our perfect home. I couldnt be more grateful for an agent who pushed us, in the best possible way, to never settle for less than what we deserve. We could not be happier in our precious, new home! I have never seen or worked with someone who was as professional, efficient, helpful, polite, approachable, etc. as Larry Turner. I was so impressed with all of these characteristics that he possesses. It made my husband and Is experience that much better. Choosing Larry Turner as my agent is the second best decision I have ever made. (The first being the decision to marry my husband.) He and his assistant are seriously THE BEST and took care of absolutely everything throughout our entire home selling/buying process. Their customer service, professionalism, communication, kindness, encouragement, and ability to be extremely efficient made such a lasting impression on my husband and I. We are so thankful for Larry Turner and his assistant, Karla, and would absolutely recommend them to any and everyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. They completely went above and beyond to make sure we got exactly what we wanted out of this experience (in our case, they exceeded our expectations). They were/are the best sounding board for any questions or considerations and we couldnt be more thankful for their advice through it all. My husband and I will never use anybody else for our real estate needs. ~ Juliet Hayes, Lake Charles

    Larry Turner and his assistant, Michel, were so very helpful to us in recently selling our house.

    Larry Turner was truly an excellent agent. He was recommended by a couple that he recently represented. We are very pleased with how he handled the sale from start to finish.

We have no regrets choosing Larry, highly recommend him, and would choose him again. ~ Sara & Blaise, Iowa, LA
    Relocating out-of-state it was crucial for us to have a realtor that was knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy and that could take care of all the ins and outs of selling our home and all while making the process go as smooth as possible. Larry was our realtor when we first bought our home so we knew he was our go to realtor because he had all those qualities, as well as patience and understanding.

    We interviewed several top agents before we decided to list our house for the second time. The first time, we went with an agent, who let us decide the price for the house and it never sold. When we interviewed Larry Turner, he immediately told us that the price we had the house for the first time around was too high and offered the correct price now. Although we didn't want to hear what he said, he asked us if we wanted to sell or not. Because if we wanted to sell, we had to get right on the price. And he was correct; the house did sell. He has always been an honest shooter with us; that's the kind of friendship we have had through the years and that is to be appreciated. ~ Jeff Ferguson, Lake Charles
    The Larry Turner team at Century 21 is outstanding. ~ Mary Werner, Lake Charles
    Larry Turner is exceptional. I feel completely comfortable with his expertise and execution, so that I dont feel like my only responsibility is to communicate my goals and feedback to Larry and not work or worry. I recommend Larry to everyone. Im grateful to have him as my agent. ~ Keith Menard, Lake Charles Louisiana
    We have used Larry Turner several times when selling our properties. Our son also used Larry to sell his house. Larry is very easy and friendly to work with. He always has good suggestions as to what would help to sell the properties as quickly as possible. He is always accessible to us day or night, if we have any questions or concerns If any problems may arise in working with potential buyers, Larry always has good ideas to make the situation work for both sides. He goes over and beyond to make a happy conclusion to the buying/selling process. We have always been glad we had Larry working for and with us! We couldn't have been more pleased with the way Larry Turner communicated with our family during this process. There are 4 heirs that were involved with the sale of our mother's house. Larry met with all 4 heirs several times to make sure no one had any questions or concerns. Everyone was pleased with the way Larry handled any situations that came up and was successfully able to bring them to a conclusion. Larry was always accessible by phone/text at any time of day or night to answer any questions or concerns. He listened respectfully and professionally to all concerns the four heirs had. Larry was able to bring the sale of our mother's house to a satisfying and quick conclusion. We will definitely use Larry again if we have a property to sell. We will also tell our friends that may be needing an agent about how much we appreciated working with Larry. As we have already said several times, we feel that we received exceptional service from Larry Turner and his associates at Century 21/Bessette. We have used him before for other properties, our son has used him for the sale of his house in Lake Charles, and if we need to sell/buy another property, we will definitely call him again. We would not think of using anyone else except Larry to handle our property needs. ~ Mark Lavergne, Lake Charles
    I can not say enough wonderful things about Larry Turner. Larry was recommend to me by a mutual friend and we hit it off right away. I was going through a change in my life and he made the house buying process so easy and stress free. He was always available to take my calls or answer my emails with any questions I had and for a newly single women that meant a great deal to me. I would strongly recommend Larry to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home. He . knows the area, and what is out there better than anyone around. ~ Toni Stelly

    Working with Larry Turner was definitely a daily. Would definitely recommend him to friends and family. ~ L. Denney Iowa, LA
    I would recommend Larry Turner first because he has a great sense of humor and that soothes me during hectic situations . . . which buying and selling your home can easily become. He has been through it, seen it happen, and lived to tell the story and wear the t-shirt. So, nothing catches him off-guard. And that's a great characteristic in a realtor. Because your average consumer has no idea of all the little details that go along with selling/buying a home. We don't know about a sewer inspection or which mortgage company we should use, or how long things should take to get done. There is nothing he does not know when it comes to real estate. I have known him since he came to Lake Charles many years ago and he is the same person he was back then. Down to earth, never meets a stranger, patient, understanding, and really, really helpful. I love that about him. I have worked with other top realtors in this town and they are good; they are. But Larry gives you the whole package. He is not just a lister and he is not just a seller. He is both and he is genuinely interested in finding you the right fit . . . not just selling another property. You want to see a property on a Thursday night, he will take you. Or maybe Sunday works better for you, well he can do that too. He is always available. ~ Lisa Ferguson, Lake Charles
    Larry and his team are fantastic! They were very helpful and always available. We appreciate all of the hard work! ~ Tawnya

He manages to keep us informed, inspired and confident in the decisions that we need to make for a successful real estate transaction... considering both the short-term and long-term financial and market impact. This purchase was for our parents and Larry definitely helped us navigate addressing the specific concerns and requirements unique to buying for someone else with ageing-in-place issues. Eric and the rest of Larry's team are also competent, polite and eager to please us. They all get a gold star and a smiley face! :) ~ Karen and Ken Chamberlain, Lake Charles, LA
    We contacted Larry Turner for the purchase of our new home as we previously used him as our Agent for the purchase of our first home almost twenty years ago before we moved out of this area of Louisiana. Once we decided to move back to Lake Charles, Larry was the only Agent we had an interest to contact as from previous experience we knew he had a tremendous knowledge of the market. Once again, it was evident that Larry shrived to exceed our expectations. He was always prepared to assist and accommodate us during our purchase. He took care of everything and made our lives so much easier during that stressful time when we were trying to juggle everything from a far. He communicated with us, understood our needs and provided us with imperative guidance and suggestions. Additionally, Larry is a person of exceptional character and ethics. We recommend Larry Turner to everyone we know who may need a Realtor. He's top notch! ~ Julie & Chris Warwick, Lake Charles
    Larry has been my realtor for years and I would never consider using anyone else. Larry has always worked diligently and tirelessly to sell properties for me and my husband in the past, even though some of those listings were a challenge. Larry made me feel that he was dedicated to helping me find exactly what I needed in my search for a new home. He made me feel like I was a priority and he always had my best interests at heart. He was very patient with me and very understanding of my needs. His knowledge of the market is impressive and, although, he was always professional, he was also very friendly and personable. His extensive knowledge of the people and places in the area is remarkable. I never felt like he was compromising his integrity for the sake of a sale or a listing. Larry Turner is the only realtor I would very consider using or recommending. ~ Jo Ann B. Collings, Lake Charles, LA

King, Lake Charles LA
    I was not planning on buying a home at age 70, however after meeting with Larry and Greg I realized this was the right move. Never once did I not trust their guidance through the process.

    Larry Turner was very professional and knowledgeable with everything. This was our second time to use Larry as a realtor, and we would not use anyone else after both experiences.

He's friendly to us and our children which made us comfortable having him working with us on something so important for our family.

    We were very pleased with Larry Turner and would highly recommend him as a real estate agent. He did everything he said he would do in a very timely fashion and, in our opinion, went above and beyond to help us get a sale. At the start, he gave us his opinion on the value of our house. He did not try to go too high to get our hopes up, but gave a very fair evaluation which proved to be exactly what the house sold for. There were a few bumps on the road with regard to the buyers, but Larry was very positive about the buyers and helped to keep us positive as well. Larry also has a wonderful assistant whose name is Eric. The two of them make a wonderful team. Again, we would recommend, and HAVE recommended him as the perfect real estate agent. As a sidenote, the gentleman that did our blueprint also recommends Larry Turner to people. He has worked with him in the past and said he is highly professional as the perfect real estate agent.

    Larry Turner is, by far, the hardest working real estate agent I've ever had the good fortune to know. He's sold two properties for us in the last couple of years. Before Larry had these listings, we had tried for years to sell these properties through other realtors, with no luck. Larry never gives up on a listing. ~ Jo Ann Collings, Lake Charles, LA
    We had been working with another agent for almost a year. She got a new job and was re-locating to another state so she highly recommended Larry Turner. I received notification by e-mail on a Wednesday regarding this home coming on the market. I scheduled a viewing for the next afternoon. Larry had had two root canals on the day we scheduled to view the home and he had to step in to represent us. He showed up anyway. My husband told him we could have re-scheduled but Larry recognized the speed at which this quality home would be snatched up so he kept the appointment with us. I think this was one of the keys in successfully bidding on this home. I had never experienced Docusign before in a real estate transaction. Larry kept us on track with timing and signing the proper documents to meet deadlines. ~ Debby Nabours, Sulphur, LA
    Larry Turner knows the area well and he keeps up to date on homes placed for sale. He is very approachable and he dedicates 110% of himself toward finding a home that meets your needs. ~ Jason Godusky, Sulphur LA
    Larry is a very kind and supportive person. He always put others needs first and is available at all times. He is truly going out of his way to accommodate everybody! What I appreciate the most about Larry is his honesty when he show a house even if it might cost him the deal. He also listens very carefully what ones requirements are and will only recommend houses that meets those requirements. We have never got the feeling that Larry is pushy and want to close a deal at all cost. ~ Hans Pretorius, Lake Charles

    We were able to find and put an offer in our house in one day. We were from out of town but Larry made everything very easy. Kept us up to date on even the most minor things and was there with us every time we were in town to meet with inspector or buliDer or if there was ever any questions or problems. We have a very active one year old and larry couldn't have been any more patient or kind with him. We would use larry again regardless of which realty company he is with. ~ T. X., Moss Bluff
