Larry Mercer is the broker/owner of Mercer Hughes Real Estate Group in Valdosta Georgia.
Mercer hit the ground running in 1998 after transitioning from a distinguished 24-year career in the USAF, where he retired at the top enlisted rank: Chief Master Sergeant.
He quickly acclimated as a REALTOR® and was the company Rookie of the Year in 1998! He now has over 21 years of real estate experience and has been a top-producing agent since he began his career.
As an Accredited Buyers’ Representative (ABR) and a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) Mercer works extensively with military and first-time buyers, investment purchasers, and sellers. He has a wealth of foreclosure experience as he worked for many of the top foreclosure firms for over 20 years as a listing agent.
Mercer averages over 60 transaction sides a year, and is a serious, no-nonsense broker/owner with the education and experience to back it up. He is brutally honest (but still has fun along the way!) and pours his heart and soul into every transaction to serve his clients!
Mercer’s career from an agent to the broker of Mercer Hughes Real Estate Group, was a natural evolution of time and experience. Mercer teamed up with Jerry and Dedra Hughes to form their own company, and to follow their dreams… Mercer Hughes Real Estate Group strives to have the best trained agents who follow the credo of “Knowledge, Experience, and Service.”
He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resources Administration with St. Leo College, and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration with Valdosta State University.
He’s a proud member of the Valdosta Board of REALTORS â and has served two terms as an elected Director, was the secretary/treasurer, and twice ran the local Multiple Listing Service as chairman and president. He believes strongly in the REALTOR® brand and The Code of Ethics.
Mercer has been married to Doris for 39 years, and has two grown children, Justin and Eliesha, and a granddaughter, Sydney.
In his off-time he enjoys playing golf, hunting, fishing, and woodworking.
