Ratings & Reviews

Doug did a great job of managing all of the "dressing-up" items to make our house attractive to a potential buyer, so that when it was ready to go on the market, it had lots of interest from buyers right away. After the first weekend open house (which he managed, also), we got a solid bid (right at our asking price) from a well-qualified buyer, and the rest of the sale details went very smoothly after that. I give him top marks for (1) knowing what kind of home improvements will give you the most "bang for the buck" in making a home attractive to a buyer; (2) knowing the local market well, both in terms of timing a listing, and what would be a reasonable asking price under the current market conditions; and (3) following through with all the details to finalize the sale without complications. If you're thinking about selling a home in the South Bay area, I'd definitely recommend his services.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Santa Teresa, San Jose, CA.

Doug sold us our first home. We couldn’t be happier with his services. He was diligent in finding the right home to fit our needs. Once we were in contract on the property, he and his amazing staff went above & beyond to make sure the transaction moved along smoothly. Doug is extremely knowledgeable about the Real Estate market an all aspects related. He made sure we had contacts for contractors and any other services we were going to need once the sale was final. We would highly recommend Doug for all of your Real Estate needs and look forward to working with him in the future when we are ready for a bigger home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $1.475M in Saratoga, CA.

I am so glad to see Doug's website. We bought our Saratoga home through Doug in 2008. I have bought and sold 4 homes in the past. Without question, dealing with Doug was the best experience I have ever had with a realtor. He was 100% honest and trustworthy, and always followed through when asked. I hope not to need a realtor in the near future, but I will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Santa Clara, CA.

Doug did a great job with the sale of our condo. He helped pinpoint the areas we needed to fix/update and connected us with a contractor who worked very quickly to complete the updates/repairs. Doug's fees were very competitive and included 60 days of staging. When the condo went on the market, it looked beautiful. The unit was on the market less than a week before we got an offer for full asking price! We were in escrow for less than 3 weeks and were able to sell our condo very quickly. Doug made all of this happen and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Sold a Single Family home in 1999 for approximately $525K in Morgan Hill, CA.

Over the years we’ve personally recommended Doug to many of our friends and co-workers and we are delighted to offer another recommendation here on Zillow. Doug has been our Real Estate Agent for over 11 years. We have purchased and sold homes with his expert help and assistance, and because we trust him, we’ve often asked his advice before embarking on major home improvement projects. Doug is an extremely knowledgeable professional who’s integrity is unparallel; not to mention that he’s an all-around nice guy and very easy to work with. It is our pleasure to recommend Doug for your Real Estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 in Los Gatos, CA.

I wholeheartedly and very highly recommend Doug Goss for buying or selling property here in Silicon Valley.

Doug has completely earned the trust of my husband and I, as well as a number of friends we've since referred to him over the years. (Doug's name initially came to us as a referral from a good friend.) It's so important to find somebody you can trust and somebody who's looking out for your best interests when you're talking about making some of the largest financial transactions of your life.

This review is based on 5 real estate transactions: Doug helped me purchase a condo in North San Jose in 1998. A few years later, he helped me sell it and move into a 2400sf home in south San Jose. And in 2009, he helped my husband and I sell the south San Jose home and purchase a similar home in Los Gatos.

Qualities I particularly value in Doug:

He's a smart guy with a lot of experience and can put things in perspective. There are so many details and complexities in buying and selling and there's so much money and happiness at stake, it's really helpful to have a guide who's done the routine plenty of times and who's been through all sorts of situations.

He provides great service by being proactive and very responsive; he stays on top of every question or concern.

He is very professional and ethical. I have been really impressed by his fairness and how reasonable he is about all kinds of decisions.

He's got excellent interpersonal skills, which make him easy to talk to and a pleasure to work with. This also made us feel very comfortable having him represent us as buyers and sellers.

He seems to like what he does, which I think helps make him so good at it. :)

Without reservation, I encourage you to choose Doug Goss as your real estate agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.5M in Almaden Valley, San Jose, CA.

Doug was such a pleasure to work with. He has a genuine desire to match families with the right home. He was extremely knowledgeable about each of the areas included in our search and his input proved to be extremely valuable when we were weighing the pros and cons of each property. We feel he went above and beyond what most agents would do not only during our search, but as we were transitioning to our new home and area. He was very responsive and made the process as easy as it could be. He is the agent I would recommend to people I care about most because there is no doubt he would have their best interest in mind.

Bought a home in 2006 in Perry, CA 95037.

I worked with Doug on my move to San Jose from Austin Texas. He performed outstanding service from the first visit through the move in. He is knowledgeable about the many neighborhoods of the Bay Area and steered us to the right property for our family. I have recommended Doug to seven friends...all of whom are thrilled with his service.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2005 in North San Jose, San Jose, CA.

As a realtor, Doug just "gets it." When I decided to sell my home, his breadth and scope of marketing campaign, sold my home in 4 hours. I had planned to be out of town for an entire weekend while my home was open for viewing. I actually had to come back the same day I left, to accept an offer. He doesn't believe in "well, let's just see what happens." Doug takes solid, measurable action to help you sell your home while providing advice on "this is a good, solid offer I have confidence will make it all the way through." As an engineer, I certainly appreciate his efficiency and directness.

When you're looking to buy a new home, he finds ways to persuade the seller to give you a great deal and make them believe it's their idea. When he helped me purchase a new home, he was able to negotiate a price point that was well below previous offers the owners had received. Also, during the process, I had a family emergency that needed my immediate attention on the other side of the country, and Doug instantly stepped in and helped move everything along. When all those usual small details with home purchasing came up, he made all the decisions that needed to be made, with my full trust, and he completely came through for me. I've recommended him to several of my friends, and would again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $1.3M in Almaden Valley, San Jose, CA.

Doug helped us by our first home almost 7 years ago. At that time the market was Hot hot hot!! He helped us negotiate a great deal on a great house. Then when it came time to sell, of course it was during the housing slump. Doug helped us get the house ready and we sold it with multiple offers at full price in 2 days! It was amazing. We also got a great deal on our new house.

Doug is the best of the best. He knows the area, knows the real estate markets, and knows how to avoid mistakes. Making sure your contract is written up correctly can save valuable time and money. I would and have recommended Doug to many friends and family members over the years and will continue to do so. If you want a great agent look no further.
