Sold a home in 2014.

Doug guided through the buying and selling process in a professional and attentive manner. He was well versed in all aspects of the process and had many excellent contacts for attorneys, inspectors, etc. He was available and ready to jump in whenever we asked. He was also very pleasant to work with.  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Somerville, MA.

Doug was an absolute rock star through the whole process of purchasing my new home in Somerville in 2014. The market was very tight while I was looking and Doug was able to consider my needs and suggest a great condo for me; while it was initially listed out of my price range, he was a huge help in negotiating to my desired price. He was also able to connect me with a local bank that got me a great rate on my first mortgage. This was my first home purchase and Doug did an exceptional job of keeping me informed on what to expect and what I needed to do. His calm demeanor and ability to provide expert commentary on the places we visited made a huge difference to the process.

Doug really stepped up on my closing day. When we arrived for the walkthrough an hour before the scheduled closing, we found that the seller had not completely moved out. Doug immediately began working with my lawyer and the seller's agent to get the situation resolved and the closing to go through on that day. He kept in touch with me and my lawyer by phone and text throughout the day and pushed the seller's agent to fix the issues. He absolutely went above and beyond to get everything squared away and get the closing to go through.

Doug is a pleasure to work with as well as an expert in his field. I would absolutely recommend him as an exceptional realtor.

Sold a Condo home in 2010 in Mid-Cambridge, Cambridge, MA.

It was a pleasure to work with Doug from beginning to end. He helped me and my family find the property that we eventually bought and then, a few years later, he helped us sell it too! Doug is warm, friendly, responsive and incredibly considerate. He also has a great network in the real estate business. He is a rare find and you will enjoy working with him! We have nothing but the highest regard for him and have recommended him to other friends on the market.  More Less
