   Doug grew up in  Queens and New York City.  Although he has owned and operated New York City restaurants,  his real interest has been in buying and selling residential properties as an investor for over 25 years .  Doug feels that his many years of experience as an investor have made him uniquely qualified to help his own clients  navigate the complicated and sometimes confusing world  of home buying and selling. Because of this, much of his business is through referrals. "When I can help a family find a home, then negotiate and close the deal, the best compliment I can receive is a call from their friends who say they want me to represent them based upon my reputation. Many of my clients are coming to Northern Westchester from places like Brooklyn Heights and are sometimes unfamiliar with septic systems, wells, (buried) oil tanks, hydro air heat, drainage systems and local zoning ordinances. By sharing my own real world experiences and providing contacts for licensed inspectors who specialize in these areas, I can help alleviate some of their concerns. Of course, our relationship doesnt usually end when the deal closes. Often my clients will use me as a resource for names of vetted service providers, including electricians, carpenters, dog sitters, summer camps and even as an impromptu tour guide!"  With a consistently high sales volume, A member of the Million Dollar Club Doug is regularly one of the top five propucers in his Katonah office.  

  He currently resides in Katonah with his wife and children, who attend John Jay schools.  Doug is very active in the local community and has volunteered with the Children's Aid Society and Four Winds.  His passion is hiking  his Washington County Farm with his kids and his favorite Lab . Doug  also plays tennis and enjoys kayak fishing for striped bass.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Katonah, NY.
      Doug has been in charge of selling my home in Katonah and has excelled in every possible way. He was working so hard for me that I almost felt guilty. I no longer live in the area so he was unofficially acting as a home manager, above and beyond the call of duty.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Katonah, NY.
      Doug was extremely helpful and supportive throughout our search for a new home. Even when discouraged, Doug kept us afloat, and reassured us that there was the perfect home for us out there. He never made us feel pressured, and never pushed us to look at any home we did not want to/were not interested in. Overall, he made the process enjoyable and stress-free. We would absolutely use him again in the future, and recommend him to those we know.  MoreLess

      Bought a home in 2013.
      We worked with Doug as our Buyer's agent....and we couldn't be happier with the result ! Doug was extremely patient in showing us numerous properties in our long search for just the right house. His knowledge of the areas we looked in was superior. When we finally found our home he was invaluable during the negotiation process. He was right by our side during initial offer, inspection, appraisal and contract. I can state beyond a shadow of a doubt in my mind that without Doug's professionalism and experience in the various aspects of purchasing a home , we would not have gotten through it as painlessly as we did. Doug started out as our realtor but quickly became one our trusted advisors for all matters pertaining to real estate and home ownership.  MoreLess
