Douglas has been helping people buy and sell real estate for over 16 years covering Manhattan, Westchester County and Fairfield County in Connecticut. Buying or selling a home is often the largest transaction a person will ever make, and Douglas strives to make the purchase or a sale of a home a "stress-free experience." With his patience, persistence, positivity, and undivided attention from day one to closing and beyond, that is his objective. There are many qualities and skills that go into being an above par real estate professional: integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, keen negotiation skills, and having a high-quality professional network. In his 16 plus years in the industry, Douglas is keenly aware that the absolute best service is provided by putting his client first. This means keeping himself accessible, being a good listener and communicator, and responding quickly to his client's needs. Douglas is highly analytical in his thinking and attentive to every detail. Educating his buyers and sellers enlightens their personal real estate experience and helps them make decisions with the utmost confidence. The "client first" philosophy has always been his approach as he provides undivided attention from day one to closing. The ultimate goal is to make the buying or selling experience comfortable and stress-free.
The purchase of our (unusual) house in Wilton, CT was a very complex process due to external disruptions. This made the purchase (and for the owners, sale) lengthy and difficult. Douglas handled it from beginning to end with confidence, calm and a very professional demeanor. His many years of real estate brokerage experience was in clear evidence throughout in spite of his being relatively new to the area. I have no difficulty recommending him highly to anyone in the Fairfield County area (or in New York, where he managed the sale of our NYC co-op with the same level of expertise).

Doug did a fantastic job helping sell our apartment in New York City. We put it up during a very soft period in the housing market a few years ago and had low expectations for a final selling price. Doug had strong knowledge of the tri-state area - especially Manhattan - walked us through our options, and properly prepared us for the open house. He found a buyer who ultimately far surpassed our bid expectations. I would definitely recommend Doug to a seller or buyer in the area with the utmost confidence.

Douglas was instrumental in helping us sell our home quickly for the right price. He was honest about establishing a fair asking price, insured the photos of our home were professional quality and that our home was featured on the appropriate sites. Douglas was very responsive and supportive throughout the stressful selling process. He is patient, great to work with and I would definitely use him again!

I have worked with Douglas for almost 7 years now. He was my agent when I bought my apartment in NYC and has helped me numerous times as I now rent the apartment out and have had multiple tenants. Douglas is extremely hard working, loyal and does everything in his power to expedite things in both the sales and rental process. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for help with any of their real estate needs.

I couldn't have asked for a better broker to represent me. Douglas made sure I steer clear of rash decisions. In the end Douglas's guidance and advice saved me thousands of dollars and got me an apartment that my family and I love. His responsiveness is fantastic and he has good contacts which you may need to rely on. Highly recommended. A+

Douglas helped us find, negotiate and buy an apartment in New York City. This was a bit tricky as our daughter was going to live in the apartment and our names are listed as the owners. With so many co-op rules to pore through, Douglas did all of the work up front and showed us only the apartments for which we would qualify. He did a magnificent job working with the seller's agent and a seller who we might say was "difficult". Douglas made this experience almost anxiety free which most people cannot say about a real estate transaction in NYC! He also checked into the co-op financials and made sure that this building would be a safe investment. I recommend him without reservation!

It was such a pleasure working with Douglas on both the sale of our place and the purchase of a new one. His professionalism, patience and knowledge are impeccable. Douglas returned all calls quickly and no amount of questions were too much for him to answer. I would not think of calling anyone else for my real estate needs.

I was panic stricken when I lost my rent stabilized apartment until Doug came to the rescue. He was amazingly thorough, basically interviewed me about what mattered to me in a neighborhood. He sent me pictures for the entire weekend before we met to look at places and I took the first place he showed me. Whenever I talk about how happy I am where I live five years later I mention Doug. I highly recommend him.
