If you’re not the kind of person who cares about hiring a “nice guy” to sell your St. George real estate, you’ll want to use that “back” button ASAP. If you are, well read on!
“Jeremy is such a nice boy. Yes, he was a picky eater as a child, but a good boy.
We’re so proud of him.”
“In a world of certain uncertainly, there are two statements you can be certain about….
1. “Knowledge is Power”
2. “All Real Estate is Local”
I’m certain about it.”
-Some Wise Guy
And if those two statements are, indeed, true, then “Local Knowledge” is BIG POWER for Buyers and Sellers in the St. George Real Estate market.
For Jeremy Larkin, there’s more to life than just selling St. George real estate. He’s proud to be a true Washington County local, graduating from Dixie High, Dixie State College, and Southern Utah University (SUU). Shoot, he and his good wife graduated from Dixie State College on Friday night, and were married on Saturday morning!
He is such a local that he often jokes about living in four different homes along a three-block strip of 600 East in downtown St. George and walking to Elementary, Middle School, High School, and often College!
Not only did Jeremy grow up in Utah’s Dixie, but his parents did as well. In that time, the Larkins have seen the town grow from a tiny little oasis in the desert with 1 stoplight, to bustling but quaint paradise we enjoy today.
“You may think I’m young” Jeremy says, “but I remember when 700 S. just ran East past where Harmon’s Grocery store is and just turned off into the desert. There was no IHC, SkyWest, Target or any other “Big Box” store on that side of town – just sagebrush and our scattered underground and tree forts!”
Through the years, Jeremy has been involved in serving The Exchange Club, The Southern Utah Performing Arts Festival (SUPAF), The Boy Scouts of America, and is a graduate of Leadership Dixie. Most near and dear to Jeremy’s heart is Keller Williams annual “Red Day”, a day of service in which every single Keller Williams Realty office on the planet stops what they’re doing to complete a local service project (VIDEO BELOW!)
What company would close their entire office down for a day every year to do service? KELLER WILLIAMS, that’s who! We’re talking about “Red Day”, a KW tradition that involves every single office in the KW system. Our St. George office did a day of labor at Porter’s Nursing Home on 200 N. which included planting an entire veggie garden, park benches, flowers and miscellaneous interior paint work. The residents LOVED IT! Of course the real benefit was to those involved. Those people don’t see many visitors ever, so having 30+ Keller Williams agents in their bright red “Red Day” t-shirts tearing up the yard was pretty darn exciting for them.
Really! Current statistics show that only ½ of the homes that hit the St. George Real Estate market actually sell. Let’s avoid that shall we?
When you’re selling your St. George (or surrounding area) real estate, you want to do is as fast as possible, with the fewest headaches, and of course you want to earn the most money possible….who doesn’t? We understand this and have developed a unique, (see: “effective”) 4-step Seller Success System. Leaving a SINGLE step out can cost you thousands and leave your home languishing on the market for way….too…..long…..or cause your home to not sell at all!
We’ll consult with you on the Home Staging, Marketing and Pricing process, as well as discuss the critical importance of Buyer feedback in the process of uniquely positioning your home to get the absolute best results possible.
Recent reports show St. George area home values rising faster than you may think! This is phenomenal news for those many St. George homeowners who’ve been waiting for values to rise enough to get their current home sold – and perhaps build or purchase that next home before values get too high!
Short on time? Facing imminent foreclosure or other financial danger? You’re not alone. With the average St. George home sale taking over 4-6 months in today’s market, many Sellers simply cannot gamble on the “waiting game.” Every month is another payment... more HOA fees, more uncertainty. Whether you’re in imminent financial danger, need to get relocated quickly for new employment, or simply need this home sold so you can close on the next one, The Larkin Group’s Guaranteed Sale Program can alleviate some serious stress. Through this program, we can GUARANTEE to sell your St. George real estate at a price, and time frame, you agree to – or we’ll have it BOUGHT FOR CASH, or SELL IT FOR FREE! Yes, really.
This program certainly isn’t for everyone, and of course not all properties qualify, but it could be for you. To see if your piece of St. George real estate qualifies and for details about our guaranteed sale program please fill out the form below:

The thing that set Jeremy apart from other Realtors for me was his keen sense of all the subtle elements needed to sell a house. After wasting over 1 year and working with 2 Agents who couldn’t sell my home in the Boulders subdivision of St. George, Jeremy convinced me to wait to put my house on the market until it was priced right, 100% ready to show, looking it’s tip top best. He also had suggestions for “deal breaker” kinds of situations in the house, things that would turn buyers away. I feel that following Jeremy’s advice was key in getting my home sold within a few days of it hitting the market. Not only that, it sold for 100% of the listing price!
I worked with 4 different agencies and 5 different Realtors when trying to sell 3 Ivins, Utah homes. The Larkin Group gave me the best follow-up information, consultation, and overall customer service of the group. In fact, Jeremy ended up facilitating both sides of the deals that sold all three homes! I would recommend Jeremy to anyone who values good customer service in their real estate transactions.
What if a small change in mortgage interest rates caused you to COMPLETELY MISS the opportunity to purchase a home?! That could be happening. And soon.
Jeremy doesn’t sell 10x as much St. George real estate as the average agent ALONE. Meet the St. George, Utah “Jedi’s.” Delivering newspapers & pizzas in St. George before most real estate agents had HEARD of the place, there is virtually no corner of Washington County that Jeremy & The Larkin Group don’t have intimate knowledge of! This provides SERIOUS power to our St. George Real Estate Clients. “We Know this Town!”…literally, AND figuratively!

Alex comes to us by way of Salt Lake City, where she fought the law, as a Paralegal, Administrative Assistant, and Office Manager for seven years, and the law won! Her passion for marketing and advertising took her away from the legal field and straight into marketing and PR where she thrived in all social media platforms, developing strategic market plans, press release writing and distribution and was able to land many guest spotlights on television for her clients. Although thriving in the busy city life, Alex and her husband decided to move to the quaint and sunshiny City of Saint George to plant their roots and feed their passion for the outdoors. With her strong legal background, a few dozen marketing tricks up her sleeve, and her infinite love of helping PEOPLE the transition into Real Estate has been seamless. Alex is a bundle of positivity, upbeat energy, and she won’t skip an opportunity to make you laugh, however, her professionalism, tact, and down to business drive puts her in a category all her own.
Seeking warm-weather sanity, year-round golf and amazing vistas, Jessica escaped the mind-numbing cold of Cody, Wyoming to join us “smart folks” in Utah’s Dixie! To say she is excited to live in beautiful St. George is an understatement! She studied Spanish at Brigham Young University and received a Masters in Education from Montana State. She later taught Spanish and English for ten years in a tiny school district of 140 students. While she loved teaching, she is excited for a new challenge and adventure. In addition to passing her free time traveling, spending time with her husband and daughter, and reading great books, this woman is DOWNRIGHT FUNNY! You’ll get that the second you meet her!
We knew we “had to have her” after just one interview with Larkin Group Director of Operations Jess Hogan!

Her clients, along with all of us at The Larkin Group, love her undying positivity, work ethic and hunger to help them find the perfect place to call their own.

When Avis Rent-a-Car "scouted" Marci, she was on the front end of a local car wash and Avis owners were baffled at how she was asserting herself to do any and everything to make that car wash run smoothly. So good that they stole her away on the spot to run their operation. And then….WE stole her! Marci is so good administratively that she’s done EVERYTHING here at The Larkin Group and knows a Utah real estate contract better than most Brokers!! As Director of the Larkin Group closing department, she’s at her best using incredible detail orientation and a “no-BS” bulldog attitude to get our clients’ home purchases and sales closed. You’ll be glad she’s on your team!

(Talk about a whirl-wind tour!) What we may like best about Michelle has nothing to do with real estate, rather her incredible character and ability to make us BELLY LAUGH with theatrical antics! Our “Zillow.com all-star”, Michelle’s clients ALWAYS give a raving 5-stars!
