My husband and I met Doug at an open house in Leucadia and immediately knew we wanted him to help us find our first home. He impressed us with his knowledge of the area (and surrounding areas) and was incredibly genuine in character. We kept in touch with Doug in the coming months as we planned our move from San Francisco to San Diego. Doug kept us updated on the market and checked in regularly, never over-bearing.
We flew to San Diego with the intent of purchasing a home a few months later. Doug had dozens of homes lined up for us to look at, was incredibly organized and continued to impress us with his professionalism and hard work that week.
Doug ended up finding us our dream home that very week. By the time we made our offer, we felt confident we had seen and were knowledgable about the market and what was available to us. He made a very nerve-wracking decision (as first time home buyers) a seamless and enjoyable one.
Not only was Doug patient with all of our silly questions and needs, he took the time to walk us through every option, the contract, the process, whenever we needed extra clarification, he was there at the drop of a hat. We never felt in the dark and he guided us the entire way.
If you're looking for someone who listens, genuinely cares and an all-around wonderful person and professional, Doug is your man!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Carlsbad, CA.
Doug was unbelievably patient with me. :) My husband and I were first time homebuyers, using a VA loan, and looking for something really specific at a great price. Doug hung in there as we toured just about every home that hit the market for no less than 6 months. When we finally found the right place, Doug was supportive every step of the way through a complicated closing that got even more complicated by the Poinsettia fire. He always kept us informed and was very proactive, making sure we didn't lose our dream home. I am extremely grateful to Doug for his expertise and partnership through this important process. I recommend him without reservation! If he can make this picky customer happy, there's no one he can't help!

My family and I were blessed to have Doug Berry and his lovely wife as my neighbors in Sedona, AZ. It was not long before we became good friends. We ran together, mountain biked and we also had the opportunity and great pleasure to work with Doug professionally in photo shoots. Aside from being very creative, he is also extremely responsible.
All I can say is Doug is outstanding at everything he embarks on. We watched him remodel his home and transform it into a modern yet simple space with just the right touches in just the right places. He's gifted with an amazing eye for detail and possesses a meticulous nature which allows him to be thorough and go the extra mile to become knowledgeable in all areas of interest. He's very caring and gives his all with everything he sets his heart into.
Anyone who gets the opportunity to work with Doug Berry will not be disappointed.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Oceanside, CA.
Doug did an outstanding job for us. He was extremely knowledgeable and was able to provide us solid guidance as we worked through the home buying process. He was honest and extremely responsive to any questions or needs we had. I would use him again in a heartbeat. His ethic and integrity are noteworthy. If your experience is like ours, you'll be more than satisfied.
Doug was very professional and helpful. When we went to meet him each time for touring Doug was prepared and knowledgeable about each location. He gave us insight into the properties and followed up on questions we had about Associations. Doug quickly and efficently put together a time sensitive offer for us. I recommend him as an agent of choice.
From my experience working with him I can say he is
- reliable and always on time
- always does what he says he will do
- honest, professional and thorough
- takes time to give good advice
- enthusiastic and passionate about what he does
- has a great sense of humor and is a pleasure to work with
Doug has provided valuable advice on real estate transactions I have conducted in the past
Combining all of these I am confident Doug will be a great Realtor to work with, with the best interests of his clients in mind and I highly recommend him.
Doug Berry is incredibly good at what he does, extremely patient, and a pleasure to work with.
In addition to interviewing us about what we want and educating us about options , he took us on a tour of Carlsbad, so that were knowledgable on all areas of the market. Throughout working together he honed his understanding of what we were looking for (as what we were looking for was evolving and occasionally shifting).
We considered several different types of places to buy and Doug was able to tell us things about each one of them that were extremely helpful and that would not have occurred to me to research unless he had brought them up.
His estimates of how much each house we were interested in would sell for (based on neighborhood comps and trends) were invaluable.
All in all, I cannot imagine how a real estate agent can be more helpful than Doug has been to us.

I've worked with Doug for many years in all aspects of the real estate business. With his eye for detail and photography experience, he has helped me visualize potential in a property I might not have considered. I've found him to be a great, fair negotiator and excellent communicator. His personal integrity, responsiveness and creativity make Doug a joy to work with.
