Larry is a proud Pittsburgher. He was raised in Mt. Lebanon and attended Pennsylvania State University, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Finance. He began his mortgage career in 1986 with a local, family-owned real estate company before moving on to larger, national lenders. Throughout his career, Larry has been repeatedly recognized as a leader in the mortgage industry, specifically in regard to customer service excellence and sales production.
Larry’s approach to mortgage advising is to overcommunicate with his clients from pre-approval through closing. He believes his greatest strengths are accessibility and responsiveness. Larry genuinely enjoys helping homebuyers secure the best possible financing for the biggest purchase of their life.
Larry believes Holland Mortgage Advisors offers local homebuyers the most competitive product offering in the Pittsburgh market. He is committed to upholding the company’s mission statement – “to offer our clients friendly, quality, comprehensive service and the most competitive lending rates possible.”
Larry resides in Upper St. Clair with his wife, Jane. Their sons, Jack and Will, attend the University of Dayton. Larry enjoys golfing and spending time with his friends and family. He is an avid Pittsburgh and Penn State sports fan.
Working with Larry was a great experience. Everything from the pre-approval to the closing went very smooth and the interest rate was amazing. If you're looking for someone who responds almost immediately to any question you have and is very professional, Larry is your guy.- Joe M.
I have been working with and referring clients to Larry for 26 years. His calm personality, willingness to always explain and resolve challenges, great products/fees and exceptional service make Larry an easy choice!- John G. Realtor with Coldwell Banker
Larry came highly recommended and we can see why! He was very helpful in deciding the best type of loan to go with - VA vs Conventional. Larry is very quick to answer any questions, day and night - and even worked with us while he was on vacation. I highly recommend Larry Gavett and will gladly work with him in the future!- Patrick L.
