    Doug chose a career in real estate because he has always loved Hilton Head. "I want to help people get a piece of paradise like I did." Doug, originally from Allentown, PA, was led to the Island by his father for a golf outing more than 29 years ago. He first told his father that he'd retire here someday, then vacation here every year, until finally he moved here 12 years ago.Professional Experience

    In 1990 Doug started his own company, Fastech Technology, manufacturing a patented telecommunications product. He also owned and operated Stevens Temporary Employment Agency an agency for lawyers, paralegals and nurses. Both businesses were service oriented making Real Estate an easy transition. Doug's philosophy in dealing with clients: "Give them the same advice you would a family member or your best friend."

    Doug enjoys many of the activities to be found around Hilton Head Island; golf, tennis, racquetball, etc. But his real passion is sailing. He and his wife Jane recently returned from a 14 month sailing trip from Hilton Head to Australia, across the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans and four seas - the Coral, Tasmin, Fijian and Caribbean, for a total of 18,000 miles!

    When looking for your piece of paradise on Hilton Head Island, call Doug at Dunes Marketing Group and let him chart a course for you.Doug's Awards and AffiliationsHonored Rookie of the Year in 1997 for Dunes Marketing GroupLifetime Member of the Distinguished Sales AwardServes on the Technology Committee for the Hilton Head Board of RealtorsInvolved with Habitat for Humanity

    Bought a Condo home in 2008 in Hilton Head, SC.

    My wife and I met Doug and Jane back in 08' after coming to the island the previous 4 years and deciding that we really wanted to have a permanent place. Doug spent a lot of time understanding what we were looking for and our budget. Within a week we found our dream in S. Forest - Doug and Jane have stayed in touch year after year. They always fill us in when we come down on new island happenings and restaurants. I would not recommend anyone but Doug when it comes to Island properties.  More Less

    Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $575K in Hilton Head Island, SC.

    I am an attorney with a real estate practice and my wife is a real estate agent. I have worked with Doug many times and fully trust his judgment. When it was time for us to buy our own home in Hilton Head, I found a home on the internet and called Doug. Based on his inspection and recommendation, we went in to contract and traved 800 miles to inspect the home and finalize the contract. In the two days on the island, Doug arragned for the home inspection etc. We closed title in abstentia with Doug handling all details. We are delighted with our home and Doug's service. I have worked with hundreds of agents--none better (except my wife of course) Gordon D Meyer  More Less

    Bought a home in 2012.

    My family and I met Doug Eck last year when we were looking for property on Hilton Head Island. Being new to the area, Doug provided us with a wealth of information and was very resourceful in educating us without any pressure. He addressed all of our needs and concerns and was able to secure for us the property that we wanted within our time frame. Doug's great personality made us immediately feel at home in an area that we were unfamiliar with. This year we are selling and purchasing another property through Doug. Again, he knew exactly what we were looking for and found us the perfect place. We would never consider using another realtor based on the integrity and expertise Doug displays. He and his wife Jane work as a team and they are "top notch" in their field. Whenever a question arises Doug or Jane respond immediately and go above and beyond acquiring information for their clients. Doug's clients are treated as friends and he makes you feel comfortable which to us is the most important attribute that a realtor could have. As his clients, you walk away feeling comfortable and secure with your realty decisions knowing that you have the best realtor possible on your side.  More Less
