Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Chesterfield, NJ.
I am a first time home buyer and found Doug on this website . I found doug to be very responsive to questions , every question i asked i got the acknowledgement on response on the same day . I had my eyes set on a new construction , However doug made sure he showed me many other nearby listing around my price range . This goes to show he is not trying to secure a quick win but want to make sure i have all the information to make a educated decision . He has very good local knowledge around princeton area . He was with me for the pre closing inspection and pointed out a lot of things that i should be looking out for . He negotiated well for the price of the purchase and kept up constant pressure on the builder . He also got a lot of contacts with Banks /attorney , i.e complete list of support cast you need to close on the house . I would highly recomment doug , the journey in house purchase is not a easy one and you need someone like him to guide you throught the process

Honestly, we called Doug because we saw his name along with two others on a listing we were interested in seeing. We did not know him and my husband prayed he was making the right choice! Well, he did! Though the house we were inquiring about was under contract, he immediately took down the information regarding what we were interested in in a home. Within days, he took us to see several homes to narrow down what we were looking for and where. Soon after that, my husband had to leave for 8 weeks of military training. I never once felt uncomfortable looking at homes alone with Doug and he honestly guided me through the homes and pointed out both the positive and negative features to help me with items that my husband would have looked at and considered. I never felt pressured and always felt he had my best interests at heart. Doug helped us find a home in our price range in our most desirable neighborhood. He knew we would have extensive renovations to do (our choice), and was able to negotiate a better sale price and help with closing costs to offset some of the renovations. He responded quickly to our e-mails or texts, and was sensitive to reach us if he was running late for an appointment. Even during the closing process, he was fully aware of what was happening and recommended great professionals to help us. We highly recommend him!
We started our first home buying search online which after a while became frustrating since we were looking for homes quite far from where we live. We found Doug on Zillow. We're so glad we did.
Doug is very calm ,professional , knowledgeable , friendly and honest. He understood our requirement and helped us through to the end. He was always on time at all the showings.
He didn't push us into decision making even though we looked at quite a few homes in different locations with our kids. He has great contacts and helped us get good attorney, mortgage agent ,home inspector etc. He was very prompt in responding to our emails and also send us current sales report in the neighborhood.
Because of Doug our home buying process was smooth and hassle free. Thank you Doug and we highly recommend him.
Doug has good knowledge on local listings and area stats. Honest and responsive. He made whole home buying process pleasant and smooth. Responds to emails same day and some times immediate. He does not push for anything and try to understand our requirements while giving time for first time buyers to adjust the process.
Doug is very professional and highly knowledgeable. We just closed on our first home in Robbinsville with his help and he was extremely professional , friendly, calm through out the process. He stood by us during all our ups and down and was constantly available to guide us.
He is a terrific person, very friendly, kind. His knowledge of area, community, construction type, quality of house is very commendable. His approach towards understanding our requirements and then filtering through listings and suggesting correct listings to view was amazing. He was always spot on and never disappointed us with any showing. Always on time and extremely available. I was amazed to see responses from him even very late at nights.
He ensured, we never rushed into our decisions, and kept sending us comparative sales in the area. He was always there for us at every step and we hope to keep up the good friendship we developed with him.
We could not have imagined going through this process with any one else other than Doug.
We highly recommend anyone and everyone to consider Doug. He will understand you and get you what you need. !!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Bordentown, NJ.
As recent sellers, we were so fortunate to find Doug Gibbons as an agent, especially after the ordeals we experienced with our prior agent.
In his presentation to acquire the listing we removed from our prior agent, Doug was honest and forthcoming. He did not use abrasive “hard sell” tactics. Doug respected our desire to make no decision on the spot.
Choosing Doug Gibbons was the best decision we made. Our only regret is that we did not list with him initially! Doug is hard working and dependable. He responds immediately to phone and email messages—even when he is on vacation! Unlike our previous agent who tried to “bully” us into accepting low-ball offers, Doug never compromised our best interests for the sake of his commission. He truly worked with us as a “team” to achieve the common goal of selling our home. As a result, the transaction went smoothly and the transition was seamless.
We have conducted many real estate transactions through the years on our own behalf and for family members. Never have we felt satisfied with the services provided by the real estate agents we used—until we worked with Doug.
Suffice to say, we highly recommend Doug Gibbons. Doug is truly a professional real estate agent who provides exemplary service. Unlike many agents who just work to accumulate listings, Doug serves the needs of buyers as well.
Upon request, we would be happy to provide additional information regarding our experience with Doug Gibbons.
Being a new home owner, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. After reaching out to Doug, that all changed. Doug was more than willing to answer any question I had, is extremely knowledgeable, hard working, always available, trustworthy, and a quality that I found extremely comforting in being new to home ownership is his considerate nature in listening to what I was looking for and throwing out suggestions rather than pushing me into looking into something I was not interested in. I have been in my home three months now, and couldn't be happier. When the time comes to look for a new spot to rest my head, Doug will be getting the call.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Columbus, NJ.
Doug Gibbons was the most efficient agent that we have used. He took pictures of our property and made a very complete showing of our home, on video and brochures. He was always there to answer any and all questions that we had for him, and responded with quick replies. We had the utmost of confidence in his ability, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants an agent with the integrity and ethics that Doug has proven to have. We give Mr. Gibbons 5 stars.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $500K in Yardley, PA.
It is without hesitation that I recommend Doug Gibbons to anyone considering purchasing our selling a residence(especially in the Yardley, Newtown, PA area). An ability to diagnose the market, understand the underlying data and trends in regards to pricing, volume and positioning is essential to being successful. This is an area of superior strength for Doug. Match this with a high level of professionalism and a warm, understanding personality and you have a partner you feel confident being by your side throughout what can be an emotional and anxious process.
I initially worked with Doug when he helped me purchase my first home. Many years later, I again turned to him to sell it when my housing needs changed. (How many others have come and gone in that industry?) I tapped his expertise a third time as we again worked together to purchase our dream home my family and I plan on living in for decades to come.
Once again, it is my pleasure to recommend Doug Gibbons. He is a trusted partner that I am thankful I had the pleasure to work with.
