Larry McAdoo, Principal Broker
Larry founded KL Associates along with his wife Karen over 30 years ago. As Principal Broker, Larry oversees the firm’s sales division, property acquisitions and investor relations. With support from family members over the years, they have built a steady presence and stellar reputation in the DC real estate market.
A native of Newark, New Jersey, Larry moved to Washington, DC and attended Howard University School of Business and UDC, where he earned his BS in Accounting. He soon began investing, renovating and managing properties with Karen and formed KL Associates as a property management firm in 1991. Drawing on this success, Larry went on to obtain his brokerage license and formed a sales brokerage division.
“I feel qualified in offering sound advice on investment properties because I am an investor, myself. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with buyers and sellers alike.”
Larry has served on the GCAAR Property Management Committee. Currently, he sits on the board of the Independent Real Estate Brokers Alliance and is a member of the Association of Real Estate Brokers, Business Networking International (BNI) and Toastmasters.
