Larry is a native Coloradan, lifelong Denverite, and a die-hard dog lover. Larry began working in the family business as a teenager, under the watchful eyes of his father and two uncles. After attending University of Northern Colorado, he went to work for the Ridgewood Realty Companies which operated Midway Development and Jefferson Construction, developing and constructing over five hundred apartments, townhomes and single-family homes, as well as a Safeway grocery store and two retail shopping centers in Metro Denver.
He founded Kunz & Associates in the 1980's, specializing in the construction of custom and semi-custom homes in some of Denver's finest neighborhoods, including Sixth Avenue West, Cherry Hills, Coventry and the North Ranch in Ken Caryl Valley. But his expertise went beyond just residential construction, as he developed several commercial properties including Jiffy Lube and Domino's Pizza. Other projects included First National Bank of Arapahoe County, as well as a 10,000 square foot addition to the corporate headquarters of Leprino Foods in Denver and a multi-million-dollar cheese factory in Lemoore, California.
Larry has also developed industrial facilities that range from factory expansions to distribution warehouses in California and Texas. Most recently, Larry built the Calvary Episcopal Church in Golden, CO in addition to tenant finishes in Republic Plaza, Denver’s tallest high rise. His construction resume also includes several big box appliance stores, home remodels throughout metro Denver, and a recent renovation of the century-old First Ave. Hotel in Denver’s Broadway Terrace area.
Though dogs have long been a part of Larry’s life, his favorites include a boxer named Butch from his childhood days, and his current love, a ten-year-old Akita named Judo.
