He helped me figure things out and get me into my first place to call home. He is very knowledgeable about real estate and extremely professional. He never pressured me into what I didn't want or need. He also gave good advice about anything and answered at the drop of a hat when I had any questions, or needed help with something. He still answers after the sale of the house when I need help with anything. If you aren't sure on who to trust or struggling on who to pick, I truly recommend him. I couldn't be any happier. Thank you Doug!!
He has an "even keel" personality type which was what I needed being a highly reactive personality type. He graciously assisted me with the many houses I looked at and made several suggestions as well. He has his own network of inspectors, contractors, etc that I took advantage of to my satisfaction. I worked at the Marine Corps Exchange for 30 years, so I liked the fact he was a Marine. I relied on his expertise when the process became over whelming. I highly recommend Doug to anyone in the market for a realtor, especially those first time home buyers!
We moved from a small town in South Carolina to Virginia Beach with two elementary school age boys and had no idea where to even begin. Doug's extensive knowledge of the Hampton Roads area was a resource we utilized for over four months while we decided on where to live. An added bonus, Doug's prior military service was invaluable to us as he knew exactly what our military family was going through during the PCS move and was there to assist us every step of the way. Doug will instantly earn your trust with his tireless work ethic and excellent communication skills. We couldn't of asked for anything more!
He showed us several homes until we found the perfect home for us. We were able to close on our home on the exact date listed on the contract. Best agent ever!
