Ratings & Reviews

Doug was fantastic. I would never have been able to negotiate the purchase process without him. He is knowledgeable, respectful of the needs and desires of the client (when to hurry up/when to be patient, etc.) and very, very detail oriented. If I had to do this again I would not consider working with anyone else.

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.

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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $550K in North Cambridge, Cambridge, MA.

Doug helped me find my house when I moved to Cambridge. He listened to what I had to say, what my wife said and also what my daughters needed, and how they reacted. He took this information and went back on the search, helping us find a house that met our needs perfectly. He understands the market, and the areas of town. I felt so comfortable with him, that we contacted him to sell our house for us when we moved away. He priced it just right, and we got lots of interest.

Bought a Condo home in 2006 in Arlington, MA.

Doug was instrumental in helping me purchase my Condo in Arlington, MA. His understanding of the process, his flexibility in showing me listings and his patience with teaching me/walking me through all the necessary steps helped to make me an informed and well-prepared first time home-buyer.

Doug was a pleasure to work with and I have/will continue to recommend him to others.

Showed home in 2014 in Newton Upper Falls, Newton, MA 02464.

I have been in the Real Estate business for 35 years and I work with Doug more than any other broker. He is responsive answering both phone calls and emails without exception and sending me the information necessary to make investment decisions.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $2.275M in Concord, MA.

My wife and I worked with Doug on two separate purchases, over the course of six months. Doug brought nothing but professionalism and charm to the entire process. He wasn't pushy in any way, and let us come to our own decisions with respect to the various properties we viewed. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to purchase real estate in the Boston area.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Somerville, MA.

Doug helped us buy our home in Somerville in 2007, and in 2012 helped us sell that home and buy one in Winchester.

Doug was very responsive, and helped us feel comfortable through our first home buying experience in 2007. He made sure we understood the pros and cons of each house we looked at and was gave us good advice on what was a reasonable bid. He always gave us honest feedback and we never felt pressured into doing anything we weren't comfortable with.

When we sold the home is 2012, he was very helpful in pricing the home by looking at various comps. Doug always had a positive attitude and made sure we got good value for house (we sold at close to the listed price) and again, we got good advice and never felt pressured to accept a bid we weren't comfortable with.

Overall, Doug is very professional and knowledgeable, and is just a great person to work with.
