Ratings & Reviews

Doug guided us to just the right house, within very narrow parameters of price and location. He also recommended a great inspection service; usually people recommend to find an inspector who's independent of the realtors involved, but in this case it worked out well--John Benson at National Property Inspections was extremely thorough. Doug also helped out when the first house where we made an offer had some serious issues on inspection and we had to get our deposit back, and kept looking till we found the right place to make another offer.

Doug Strickland is superior in his field. Not only does he know the Chester County area like the back of his hand (having grown up here, went to college here, and now raising a family here), but he has the drive and desire to meet his client's needs and always act in their best interest. Doug helped my husband and I purchase our first home together, and he made what is often a stressful process as seamless as possible. What really sets Doug apart is his comprehensive knowledge of construction, home renovation, and the vast connections that he has. If you have a question about a home improvement, Doug will either know the answer, or know how to find the answer very quickly. To say Doug is resourceful is a great understatement! We fully trust Doug, and he never led us astray. Doug is an honest professional, who was always available for our many questions, any time of day. His expertise and integrity set him apart!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Pottsville, PA.

I would absolutely recommend Doug for anyone for their next real estate transaction. Selling a house for me that was nearly 3 hours from me, Doug was my go-to guy for anything that needed to be done. He helped me find contractors required to do work, easily handled all paperwork electronically and even laid salt on icy sidewalks to accommodate showings! I have also used Doug for several years as a listing agent for a rental unit and he was fabulous. I have never had a realtor work so hard for me. He earned every penny of his commissions and listing fees along the way.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Downingtown, PA.

After a months-long search for a realtor to handle the sale of my Mother’s home, we happened upon Doug from a referral. Just minutes into our first conversation I knew he was the right person for the job. He was sincere, told us the truth (not what we wanted to hear) and immediately got to work. He was spot on with a suggested listing price (which can be a major problem if done incorrectly), found a wonderful buyer for our family home and worked diligently to ensure there were no surprises once we entered the contract stage. I’ve worked with about a dozen realtors my life, in many different states, but Doug is one of the finest.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Chester Springs, PA.

Doug Strickland gave us outstanding service when we were selling our home a couple of months ago. He told us what furniture to take out of each room, what needed to go on the kitchen counter and what needed to be painted. Doug advised us on how to stage our home and had all the connections for the pictures and the marketing for a successful experience.Thanks to Doug, our home was very well prepared for prospective buyers to view on line or in person. With Doug's guidance,our home sold in one week! If you are looking to buy, sell, or invest in real estate, Doug Strickland would be an excellent choice as your agent.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2006 for approximately $375K in West Chester, PA.

Doug Strickland is the consummate real estate professional. He helped me buy my first house in 2006 in West Chester, at a time when I had very little knowledge of the real estate market. He patiently walked me through the process and showed me house after house after house until we found the right fit. He guided me through the purchasing process, making it as painless as possible. I was thrilled with the process and the result. Doug has years of experience and his knowledge of the market is second to none. I would recommend Doug to anyone that is buying or selling a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Coatesville, PA.

My husband and I had to find a house on a tight budget and in a tight timeframe. Doug quickly sent us lots of listings to consider. He spent a lot of time with us visiting houses until we finally found one we wanted. He was very knowledgable throughout the negotiations with the owner, the inspections, and ultimately the closing of the house. Overall, it was an excellent experience and I highly recommend Doug to anyone looking to purchase or sell a house in the area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in West Chester, PA.

Doug helped us relocate from Ohio so we didn't know anything about the area or the market. We found a great home since he was willing to really dig in and figure out what we wanted. It was a tough market with very few houses in our range and when one popped he jumped on it, went and took a video tour, and made the right call. That is going the extra mile to help us.

Sold a home in 2014 in Cedars, Worcester, PA 19446.

Doug made selling our house easy. The guy knows his stuff in a few different ways: first, we felt like Doug really listened to what my wife and I needed, then he worked diligently to make it happen. His marketing plan for selling our house was way beyond any other realtor we talked to. On top of that he had a great eye for what work was needed to get our place ready to sell, and helped us arrange good contractors for concete repair, flooring, painting and professional cleaning. What a relief!
