Although born Canadian and raised in the big city of Toronto Doug was always drawn to the west coast and the mountains. After graduating from the University of Western Ontario he emigrated west to Whistler, BC and after some years working in the tourism industry he began a career in real estate in 1998. Living in a mountain community allowed Doug to do the things he loved - skiing, biking, golfing, playing hockey, and having an all out great time in the great outdoors. Doug met his US born wife Monica in 1999 and they moved from British Columbia to Reno in 2005. They chose Reno because it allowed them to have the same mountain lifestyle they lived in Whistler with the addition of a thriving mid sized city. After owning a business Doug was drawn back to the real estate world as he missed the real connection that can be achieved between buyers, sellers and an realtor aiding them in one of life's biggest decisions. "You can really get to a level 5 relationship with people when dealing with real estate and I try not to ever forget that this is a huge point in my clients lives so being thorough and listening to my clients is something I strive for....we are given 2 ears and one mouth so I try to listen twice as much as I talk".
Property purchases can be for personal residences, for family members, for business purposes or for capital investments and in all cases Doug will match clients with the best possible properties and locations in the region. Doug is very acute at reading clients and how they like to be interacted with as he responds to clients in a timely fashion via text, email, phone or video conferencing. If you are a person looking at Northern Nevada as a place to call home or for any other purposes let Doug show you the many amenities and the lifestyle that brought him here and continues to keep him here.
