What Doug's Customers Have to Say...

"My wife and I spent a fair amount of time looking for our retirement home in Central Florida. We found that home in Royal Highlands thanks to Doug DuVarney. No other realtor that we contacted had more knowledge and truly understood our needs as Doug. Not only did he take care of us before the sale, but after as well, which meant so much to us. While making this major purchase, Doug went out of his way to answer all our questions and concerns. If you are looking for a realtor who would give you personal attention in purchasing your new home, we would highly recommend Doug DuVarney."

Jim and Jan Dubsky
Royal Highlands Residents
St.Cloud, Minnesota

"It is a great pleasure for us to offer a testimonial to our home selling experience with you. During a very difficult housing market you sold four homes for us at Royal Harbor. We really appreciated your competency and diligent efforts on our behalf. We were confident that you always acted in our best interest. We would not hesitate to contact you for any future home sales."

Wayne and Maxine Farrar
Royal Harbor Residents
Stockton Springs, Maine

"I heartily recommend Doug DuVarney to anyone who plans to purchase a home in the Lake County area. Doug, while being very knowledgeable in ALL aspects of residential real estate, is particularly competent in the Active-Adult market. Doug is an Active-Adult himself, and lives in one of the finest Active-Adult communities in the Southeastern United States. Consequently he is intimately familiar with all aspects of such communities, including the lifestyle amenities and activities that truly make such well-planned communities a very enjoyable and satisfying way to live. Doug's primary mission is to meet the needs of his customers and that he does extremely well. You couldn't have a better Realtor to look after your interests and help meet your dreams."

Larry Dunn
Vice-President and Broker
Pringle Homes and Land
Eustis, Florida

"We were originally looking for our Florida home in southwest FL and the Tampa Bay area. When we decided to come look at the Pringle communities we had the good luck to have Doug DuVarney be the one to answer the other end of the telephone call. Doug's knowledge of real estate, all of the local communities (their strengths and/or weaknesses), coupled with his candor and integrity were all that we could have hoped for. He is now our friend and we love our Royal Highlands home."

Bob and Liz Ambrose
Royal Highlands Residents
Londonderry, New Hampshire

"Eddie and I would like to thank you for finding us such a comfortable lovely home. Your kindness and nice way made everything so nice. In our wildest dreams we never thought we could sell and buy a home in two weeks. It was so pleasant meeting and knowing you. Thanks again."

Eddie and Brenda Lane
Royal Harbor Residents

"When you get beyond the fluff and rhetoric, a real estate salespersons main function is to sell your house at a fair price. Thanks to Doug DuVarney my home sold in 2008 in an extremely depressed market. The combination of timely advice and constant communication in a professional manner made the entire procedure from the initial listing to the final sale a comfortable and stressless situation. Thanks."

Jim and Joanne Braxmeier
Royal Highlands Residents

"Every once in a while I think back to the day (5-28-08) when I was being wheeled into the operating room during which I received the message from Peggy that the house closed! That immediately made a difference in my attitude-of-the-moment (we would not have to move back in). So, just a note to thank you for a good job for me from start to finish of the listing. Thanks again and good luck. Take care."

Walt and Peggy Beam
former Highland Lakes Residents
Pinellas Park, Florida

"Doug, I can't thank you enough for all your expert help and advice when I ended my week long search for a Florida home in December. After viewing most of the newer golf developments between Ocala and Leesburg I had not found the community feeling and established neighborhood I was trying to locate. I really put you through the wringer with only a couple days to go before going back to Chicago. We looked at everything on the market that I requested and found what everyone in my family loved. Thanks again for your time and honest advice."

Hank Best
Royal Highlands Resident
Elburn, Illinois

"Thank you, Doug, for diligently helping us to find our new home. We were shown homes that suited our needs and were within our price range and you worked with us all the way through closing. You obviously know your business. Thanks again."

Jack and Lois Abernathy
Royal Harbor Residents
Bella Vista, Arkansas

"We got to know Doug before we ever met him. While on vacation in Florida in February of 2008, we started thinking about buying a winter home. The idea of spending another winter in Wyoming didn't appeal to either of us! The first Realtor we contacted seemed to have little interest in showing any place that met our criteria. After we returned home, that Realtor just stopped communicating. Because we had fallen in love with Lake County, we started looking for homes on-line and discovered Royal Highlands and Doug DuVarney. When we first emailed him, he responded immediately, provided all the information we requested, and answered every question. Over the next weeks he emailed MLS listings so we spent lots of time taking virtual tours as well as communicating with Doug. We got to know the community so well that by the time we came back to Florida in April, we had pretty much decided on the home we are enjoying right now. We like to tell folks that in this age of electronic communication we essentially bought our home on-line. But, we could not have found the perfect place without Doug. In addition to being knowledgeable and helpful, he truly listened to us and we believe that is one of the most important attributes a Realtor can possess. We would recommend Doug DuVarney without qualification."

Don and Reatha Oakley
Royal Highlands Residents
Gillette, Wyoming

"To anyone looking for a Realtor to work with in the Lake County area, Doug DuVarney is your man!"

"We marketed our home for sale with Doug, and although the present economic climate is not what we all would wish for, Doug never gave us any unrealistic advice, never made any false promises, and he worked diligently to achieve a sale for us at the best possible price."

"We had the disadvantage of marketing a vacant home as we had to relocate for work purposes before the home could be sold, but Doug always kept us fully informed of viewings and feedback. We never had to worry about our home being vacant as Doug would frequently check things out and let us know if something needed attention, we truly appreciated that extra mile he always went for us"

"We have just closed on the sale and would like to thank Doug for all his hard work in making the process as stress-free as possible for us. Thank you Doug."

Les and Tina Cooper
former Royal Highlands Residents

"Tim and I came to the Leesburg area in search of a new home. We called the ERA office and had an appointment to view a home with Doug DuVarney one of their real estate agents. Doug is very professional and he made our search very pleasant. He did his job very well. We would recommend him to anyone in search of a home."

Tim Arvan and Brenda Balistreri
Royal Highlands Residents
Franksville, Illinois

"My wife and I are so grateful for all that you did in getting our home in Royal Highlands sold. We have been so impressed with your determined professionalism. Your phone calls letting us know how things were going gave us confidence in that we had the best realtor to get the job done. You really went the extra mile in dealing with all those tedious details; always protecting our best interest. I strongly recommend your services!"

Tom and Marlys Vaughan
former Royal Highlands Residents
Baton Rouge, Louisiana

"We had looked at many homes and communities in the Ocala area and then we found Royal Highlands and Doug DuVarney. Doug was great from the start to the finish of the buying of our new home. He is a very pleasant person and he answered all of our questions to our satisfaction. He is professional and has the knowledge of the Real Estate business. Also, he let us take our time looking and did not rush and was not 'High Pressure'. We really appreciated that!!! Oh yes, Doug even follows through AFTER the sale!!! THANKS DOUG, WE ENJOYED WORKING WITH YOU!!"

Walt and Gloria Stewart
Royal Highlands Residents
Zephyrhills, Florida

"Thank you very much I appreciate all the help you gave me in selling my house in Legacy during these difficult periods. Even these people around me in California said I am lucky I sold my house. It was you that gave me the luck. Hope you can sell more and more houses in the future."

Margaret Yi
former Legacy of Leesburg Resident
Laguna Woods, California

"I just want to say how much I've enjoyed having Doug help me find my home in Florida. He has been very patient and kind in dealing with me. He has taken me through numerous homes, a lot of them 2 and 3 and 4 times without saying a word. He has made sure that everything that was done was the way it should be. I have called him sometimes 5 times a day with no complaints. I would highly recommend, if you are looking for a home, to call Doug. He is an excellent realtor."

Susan Eichman
Royal Highlands Resident
Sheboygan, Wisconsin

"It is with great pleasure that I give this testimonial for Doug DuVarney. As a lender, I have worked with Doug and assisted his clients for over 5 years. I have found that he truly puts the customer's needs first and he is always there to help at the professional level as well. I highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling real estate in Lake County."

Cheryl L. Burgess
Senior Mortgage Loan Officer
Bank of America Home Loans
Leesburg, Florida

"Marilyn and I want to thank you for your patience and diligence in helping us find the right house in Royal Highlands. You were there to help us meet with our inspector, in helping us arrange with the sellers to allow us to move some items into the garage before closing and giving us a list of contacts for the local area. Thanks again!"

Garry and Marilyn Ives
Royal Highlands Residents
Maitland, Florida

"Wanted to let you know how happy Bob and I are with our new house in Royal Highlands. After many conversations on the phone, we traveled to Florida with a very short time to find a new home, hopefully our last. We met, and in 4 days you found us the perfect house, you didn't know anything about us, but you managed to work as hard as you could to get us a perfect home again here in Florida. Your kindness and understanding are awesome and you are just great at what you do...Don't give up the ship. It is our pleasure to recommend you to all who are in need of housing...from day 1 to closing you were with us all the way...Thanks. We luv ya."

Bob and Chris Horn
Royal Highlands Residents
Monroe, Georgia

"We decided to retire to Lake County, met Doug DuVarney and the pressure of looking for a new home was eased. We basically decided that Royal Harbor would be our choice, but Doug wanted to ensure that we were making the best decision and took us to various other communities. Royal Harbor still won out and now our home search began in sincerity. Doug was very patient and a very sincere gentleman - in the true sense of the word, he listened carefully to our comments. After several home viewings, we are now living in our dream home, thanks to Doug. Bill and I would highly recommend Doug for your Central Florida home buying experience."

Bill and Mary Henney
Royal Harbor Residents
Plymouth, Massachusetts

"We would recommend Doug DuVarney to anyone looking for a caring, professional Realtor. Our seller was an out-of-state resident and Doug took care of coordinating all the details, from offer to a smooth and stress-free closing. It was a pleasure working with him."

Ken and Noreen Bradfield
Leesburg, Florida

"I speak for myself, my sister Renee, and Karen's daughters Stacy and Lisa when I say we are sincerely grateful for all you did as our realtor in listing, showing, and selling Karen's house. Finding you was certainly a bright spot for us in what has otherwise been a difficult situation. We knew as soon as you walked in the door for the first time that you would work diligently to sell the house. You were so positive and optimistic, yet realistic. Despite the stories of houses sitting on the market for many months, we were encouraged by how upbeat you were and how you quickly focused on the many attributes and fantastic characteristics of Karen's house. You made us feel very at ease and assured us that our unique situation (there were four of us involved in the sale) and distance would not hinder your efforts in any way."

"You were so helpful in explaining things to all of us, in some cases during late night phone calls to accommodate our schedules. I especially appreciated how you stayed in touch with me frequently and made things as simple as possible for us. You kept me informed of every action and detail and were so thorough in getting documents to us in a timely manner. This was no easy task since everything had to be done via fax, email, and snail mail."

"Thanks again, Doug, for everything. You definitely went above and beyond at every step along the way from cleaning out the refrigerator the first day of the listing to moving out a loveseat/sofa bed that got left behind by mistake when we emptied the house for the final sale! I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a realtor they would indeed be getting the best person for the job!"

Kathleen Brockett
Concord, New Hampshire

"John and I met Doug when other family members purchased a home in Royal Harbor. For about a year we looked at homes in Royal Harbor, Royal Highlands, Legacy and other developments. But we were in love with Royal Harbor."

"Doug worked very closely with us once we made this decision. He is the ultimate real estate professional; and is extremely knowledgeable and listened to our needs. Doug goes above and beyond what is required of an agent. We purchased our dream home in September 2009."

"We highly recommend Doug - not only is he a great realtor but he is a warm and caring person."

John and Pat Mullan
Royal Harbor Residents
St. Petersburg, Florida

"Just wanted to thank you for your help and support on our recent move to Royal Highlands. On our 1st trip to Royal Highlands, we met you and you asked what we were looking for in a resale and the price we expected to pay. Before the day was over, you said, " I know exactly what you want", and you took us to Princess Tania Court. It was exactly what we wanted. Unfortunately we had to sell our house in order to buy yours. For almost 3 years you kept in touch with us, advised us when the previous owners lowered their price and encouraged us to hang in there. You knew that house was meant to be ours. The rest is history, we sold our house and the sale went smoothly. We are in our new home and couldn't be happier. Thanks again for all your help. May you have continued success in real estate."

Anne and Ray Buchianico
Royal Highlands Residents
New Port Richey, Florida

"Anyone considering purchasing a home in central Florida would do themselves justice by using Doug DuVarney as their real estate sales person. Our own experience was made so much easier once we found the 'right' person and by right person we mean a very dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced person who knows the homes he sells, the materials it was built with and the company who built it. He can provide you with any information you need and if he can't, he'll direct you to someone who can."

"He is a full service realtor and will work with you from beginning to the end and wants the buyer to be satisfied with the home they are purchasing and will answer any question he can about that home."

"We had such a good experience working with Doug and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He made our buying a new home actually happen and we love it here. We can't say enough about how much he did for us. Thank you, Doug."

Linda and Britt Davies
Royal Highlands Residents
Leslie, Michigan

"We selected Doug DuVarney as our Realtor because of his knowledge of 55+ Active Adult Communities in the Leesburg area. Being from out of state, we needed to make the most of our house searching time in Florida. On our first trip, in the Spring, Doug helped us select the community that best met our needs. During the summer he kept us up to date with the real estate activity of interest to us, so when we returned to Leesburg in the Fall, we had narrowed our search down to about 6 homes. Doug was extremely patient with us as we toured the homes and took extensive notes and measurements. Once we decided to make an offer, Doug's true value came through. Not only did he guide us through the purchasing process, but because we had to return to Kentucky, he also made himself available for various inspections that took place, even after the sale had taken place. We would without question recommend Doug to anyone thinking of relocating to a 55+ Active Adult Community in the Leesburg area."

Bob and Joanna Warhus
Highland Lakes Residents
Georgetown, Kentucky

"I'm writing to express my appreciation for your diligence and professionalism in the listing and selling of my house. I will not hesitate to recommend you to future clients. Best wishes for continued success!"

Brenda Longenbach
Royal Highlands Resident

"We are very satisfied with ERA salesperson Doug DuVarney - He put forth a good honest effort in selling our home. We have sold three houses and his effort is beyond comparison. We feel he got us the best deal possible in todays market. We highly recommend him."

Lorena and Gerry Miske
former Royal Highlands Residents
Grand Rapids, Michigan

"I am so glad I made the decision to choose Doug DuVarney as my realtor to represent me in the sale of my home in Royal Highlands. Due to illness in the family I was unable to remain in Florida during the process. My goal was to sell as quickly as possible in a depressed economy. Not only did Doug sell it in four months but he kept me informed every step of the way. It truly was not necessary to be there. I would not have thought that possible for someone like me. He saw to every detail and consulted me immediately. My anticipation was one of upheaval and stress provoking. To my surprise, Doug's expertise made this a pleasant experience in which both parties won and I feel as though I made a new friend. Thank you, Doug."

Joyce Adinolfi
former Royal Highlands Resident
Brick, New Jersey

"The winters in Northern Ohio had begun to take its toll on us, so we began our search in Florida to purchase a new home. For many months we navigated the Internet and took numerous trips to Florida to look for our ideal location. We discovered Doug DuVarney through his website and had kept in contact with him. We met him in August of 2009, and he showed us many properties, but we were still unsure. Doug did not give up, but kept us informed of new properties for sale. We finally made the decision it was "now or never" and went back to Florida. With Doug's help, we purchased our perfect home in August, 2010, Mr. DuVarney kept us updated on properties for sale for over a year, which we appreciated. He never gave up on us, but never "pushed" as some realtors do. Doug also helped us with the large amount of paperwork involved when buying a home in another state. He is a man dedicated to helping you find exactly what you want. For a congenial, hard-working realtor, keep Doug DuVarney on the top of your list!"

Ron and Nancy Wurch
Legacy of Leesburg Residents
North Royalton, Ohio

"Doug, thanks so much for handling our house sale and all that that entailed. We never thought we could do all that without making a trip down. It was a pleasure working with you and we appreciated you going the extra mile for us with our home inspection, etc. We have all good things to say about how you handled everything. Thanks again & God bless."

Jac and Joan Mathews
Royal Highlands Residents
Newtown, Pennsylvania

"Mary and I are so excited about having our retirement home in Florida. We want to thank you for your friendly, efficient and complete care that you showed us during our search. You fully understood what we were looking for and hit all the points and then some. Royal Highlands is just the place for us."

Raf and Mary Lorie
Royal Highlands Residents
Topeka, Kansas

"My wife and I take great pleasure in recommending Doug DuVarney as a listing agent to sell your home. The primary reasons are, he knows the Real Estate business, he understands the current climate, and most importantly, he SOLD our house in 2010 in a slow and difficult market for Sellers. Although Doug lives in Lake County and the sub-division of our home, he markets our home nationally via the Internet. During the listing period, since our home was vacant, Doug made frequent visits to our home, gave feedback on all showings, and made recommendations to us."

"Thank you Doug for not only being a great agent, but for helping us to be optimistic during a difficult market"

Bobby and Lynette Burton
former Royal Highlands Residents
Roswell, Georgia

"First and foremost, Doug DuVarney is the most impressive real estate agent we've ever met. His professionalism and personal caring should be the model for all agents. He is knowledgeable, responsive, reliable, and affable just to mention a few of his qualities! My wife and I began our Florida Internet research over two years ago and were lucky to find Doug's web page early in the process. The search engine on his site is by far the best tool available in Florida. After compiling our short list of communities in the Leesburg area, we contacted Doug with a list of what and where we wanted to visit. His insight and familiarization of the area is amazing, and the personal coaching of what and where to include or exclude was most valuable."

"What makes Doug not only a number one agent and a very caring individual on all levels is his attention to detail and follow-up after the sale. His tireless efforts in helping with utility contacts, sorting out house operational issues, and providing access for various contractors has been invaluable. We came looking for our Golden Years' retirement home and found an incredible friend as well!"

Dan and Karen Spry
Royal Highlands Residents
Newark, Delaware

"Hi Doug. Just want to thank you for being very professional in the sale of our house. Whenever we called with a question or concern you were very prompt to return our calls. Your knowledge of real estate and suggestions were extremely helpful when it came to pricing our house and accepting the right offer. Again, thank you so much. We would highly refer you to anyone interested in selling their home."

Bob and Denise Opalka
former Royal Highlands Residents
Detroit, Michigan

"After our home languished on the market for nearly two years, we began to investigate the services offered by other area realtors. Since we had heard that the bimonthly Royal Highlands Open Houses were no longer drawing much traffic, we looked for a realtor who was internet savvy and had the ability to advertise our home to a wide audience of prospective buyers. We found this person in Doug DuVarney, ERA Tom Grizzard. We had been impressed with Doug's multiple and professional websites and soon we began to reap the rewards of his expertise. No longer did our home sit idle. Doug and his ERA team brought in dozens of prospective buyers. Within four months our home sold."

"In addition to his considerable experience selling real estate in Central Florida and his internet expertise, we found Doug to be knowledgeable, considerate, and honest. He was with us each step of the way offering guidance and encouragement."

"You could do no better than to list your home with Doug DuVarney."

Alan and Fern Davidson
former Royal Highlands Residents

"Doug DuVarney was always there to help us with the selling of our home, be it with explaining all the paperwork involved, escorting potential buyers through our home, keeping us informed after each and every visit by another realtor, or answering our phone messages with promptness. His handling of the sale of our house was more like working with a friend than it was with some stoic realty agent. It goes without saying that I would recommend him as an agent for anyone trying to sell their home and I feel ERA is fortunate to have him as one of their employees."

Howard J. Silinski
former Royal Highlands Resident
Charlotte, North Carolina

"Doug was readily available, easy to talk with, and very knowledgeable about Florida real estate. He even brought cold water to our appointment on an extremely warm day. Doug showed us numerous houses. He was very patient and encouraging with us, especially when we began to get discouraged."

Alan and Kay Beyea
Royal Highlands Residents
New York

"Doug DuVarney wins the gold for real estate agents. Our concerns and needs were his top priority. We especially appreciated the immediate feedback Doug gave to us after each showing."

Mike and Mary Anne Morrissey
former Royal Highlands Residents
Grand Haven, Michigan

"Doug was a pleasure to work with throughout the sales process. He demonstrated an attention to detail and exceptional communication which was crucial, as we were in New England, selling our Florida property. Doug provided timely updates and feedback on showings and I felt comfortable that finding a buyer was his top priority. Thank you."

Josh Rioux
former Royal Highlands Resident
Plymouth, MA

"Recently I sold my house at Legacy in Leesburg, FL with realtor Doug DuVarney who I found to be so good at what he does. He kept me posted on everything that was happening in Legacy as I was living in New Hampshire during this period that my house was on the market. I felt Doug did everything possible to be helpful to me and I would definately recommend him as getting the job done."

Helen Adams
former Legacy of Leesburg Resident
Windham, New Hampshire

"Can't say enough about Doug's help in finding our new forever home in Royal Highlands. We were on a very tight schedule when we first started looking for a home in Florida. Doug did a super job of lining up houses to view in various Leesburg locations based on our preferences. We must have looked at more than 20 houses in 2 days. However, Doug made the whole process feel smooth and non pressure filled. Doug was extremely honest but didn't try to sway our decision process. He was more than willing to answer questions but would not offer recommendations, letting us make our own choices. From our initial contact through the closing, Doug was there to help. Since we were living in Connecticut much of our business was conducted over the phone or via email. Never once did we feel like we were on our own. Doug was always there to help and smooth out the bumps when they occurred. Thanks for a tremendous effort and making our home buying experience a good one. Carol and I will always be grateful for everything you did for us."

Ray and Carol Smith
Royal Highlands Residents
East Hartford, Connecticut

"I would like to thank Doug DuVarney for all the help he has given me with the purchasing of a home in "Legacy". He was professional yet friendly at all times. He was also quick to pick up on what I was in the market for both in size and cost. He certainly made the buying experience easy."

Lee Reney
Legacy of Leesburg Resident
Syracuse, New York

"We have all done something in our life and then in hindsight wish we would have done it differently, well that will never happen with Doug, he is the best, we are so pleased with our purchase with him, we have asked him to find us a second one."

Keith and Geri Metz
Royal Highlands Residents
Allentown, Pennsylvania

"I bought a home in Royal Highlnds, Leesburg, FL on October 1, 2014. Just wanted to say a Big Thank You to Doug DuVarney, Broker Associate for being so helpful for everything we had to get done in a short time! He did a great job and I would recommend him highly! He was good to return my calls and explain what I wanted to know, both of when I was in Indiana and after I got down to Royal Highlands. Thanks again Doug for a job well done!!"

Marilyn Roberson
Royal Highlands Resident
Frankfort, Indiana

"We are writing this letter to express our positive experience that we had working with Doug DuVarney as our realtor. Throughout the years, we have been involved in several home sale transactions while living up North. We never had a realtor that worked as hard and kept in touch with us as thoroughly as did Doug."

"Whenever there was a showing, by him or another realtor, he would immediately get back to us with feedback. He would always give us ample notice as to when there would be a showing and he had several open houses on the weekends. In addition, he would keep us abreast of the comparable sales that occurred in the community and made suggestions throughout as to the best selling price for our home. He was always patient, consistent, and upbeat with us. Even after the sale, when some repair work that had not been completed prior to the sale needed completion, he kept in touch with the repairman and with us to make sure that everything was done sufficiently for the new owners."

"We would highly recommend Doug to anyone coming to the Leesburg area in need of a home."

Art and Jan Myjak
former Royal Highlands Residents
Hillsborough, New Hampshire

"My husband and I would like to thank you for being so very patient and willing to work with us through all the trials and tribulations we had in acquiring our new home. Your kindness, understanding and diligence was truly admirable. We love our new home and would highly recommend Doug DuVarney as an awesome realtor to anyone!"

Michael and Darlene Rose
Royal Highlands Residents

"Doug DuVarney was professional, realistic, reliable and made a long distance estate sale work for us. He went out of his way to meet with service providers we needed. Doug explained what we needed to do, when and helped us price our house correctly to sell. Since we were so far away it was important that our agent was accessible. Thanks Doug!"

Ann Barber
Clinton, Tennessee

"I was completely satified will all aspects of my recent transaction. From the time of listing to the closing date, Doug was always available to answer questions or to handle any other needs. He provided all information that I requested and handled all showings (his own and those of others) in a very professional manner. I would recommend him to other sellers and buyers."

Richard F. Begley
former Royal Highlands Resident
Chicago, Illinois

"Our experience with Doug could not have been more positive. He was extremely kind, very helpful, and very patient. He always made himself available for whatever needed done....home and wind inspections, answering questions, returning phone calls, etc. We were not able to come to Florida for the closing but we felt very comfortable with Doug handling everything that needed done. We are so thankful to him for all he has done for us."

Michael and Monica Labrasca
Royal Highlands Residents
Charleroi, Pennsylvania

"We could not be happier with Doug DuVarney. My sister and I live in Chicago and our grandmother passed away. This was an incredibly stressful time in our lives not only dealing with the loss of our grandmother but also everything else that goes along with it. Doug was with us every step of the way and went above and beyond in his services making the stress of selling our grandmother's house remotely much easier. We are so thankful that we went with Doug to quickly and efficiently sell the house. Many thanks Doug!"

Cristin Evans
Chicago, Illinois

"Hi Doug: We want to thank you for all the hard work you did to help us sell our house. We know it's a soft market and our house was higher priced for the area, so we expected to have some difficulty selling it. Your preparation for the sale, the online video, your careful review of the house and your in-depth information eased our concerns. Your attention to details helped to get the best possible price and your frequent communications made it easier to be patient while the house was selling. You also greatly assisted the closing, which was a big help with our trip to Chicago and the family illness. The net result is satisfaction for the two of us and also for the new owners. Thanks again...."

Neal and Lou Anne Rossdeutscher
former Royal Highlands Residents
Tampa, Florida

"Doug was great from the date of listing to the sale of my mother's home. As promised, he provided feedback to us each time the house was viewed and he was always easy to get in touch with. With Mom and all the family living out of state, Doug went above and beyond by helping us find contractors when needed. He also gave us peace of mind by being at the house when contractors and inspectors were there and he kept us informed. Doug frequently checked on the house to ensure that everything was ok. He was always there for us. If you are looking for a realtor, choose Doug! I would highly recommend him."

Liz Cusumano
Hazlet, New Jersey

"From the very first day when you came to our house we feel we have been in the best hands. Doug - you have gone "beyond" with your help, your attention to all our concerns. Mostly we so appreciate your kindness. Thank you very much."

Don and Barbara Ledoux
former Royal Highlands Residents
Fall River, Massachusetts

"Doug did an exceptional job in selling our home! His professionalism was evident from the outset, with a thorough presentation covering comparable home values and the steps he would be taking to present our home to get the highest possible sales price. His knowledge of the community was invaluable in determining that price. Throughout the process, Doug was in constant contact to ensure we knew what was going on and this continued completely through the closing. He was also always available to answer our questions. We could not be happier to recommend Doug to be your realtor!"
