Listed and sold a home
We put the home on the market and got full price offer on the 4th day. We couldn't have not done it with out Dougs experience. He has a great "sense" for listing a house. His professionalism is always top notch.

I have used quite a few real estate professionals in the past and none quite compare to Mr. Mekkes. I have also referred him to several of my tax clients, whom have been highly impressed with his knowledge and professional mannerism. You will NOT be disappointed in his services, I promise.

Doug went above and beyond helping me sell 2 houses and getting top dollar on both. He understands the market and worked hard to squeeze every penny out of potential buyers. I would gladly recommend him to anybody.

Doug assisted us in the sale of our house, and the purchase of a foreclosure. He also helped us bid on a couple HUD homes in the past and was very quick to do this, even before we had entered into a contract with him. Doug is very professional, charismatic, and great with networking. He has a lot of connections to help move the process forward - but there is no pressure. He helped us make the maximum profit on the sale of our house, and negotiated the best possible price/outcome on our foreclosure purchase. I don't think we could have made out any better. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. He has the absolute best in mind for his clients. He even offered to get our dogs out of the house for a showing before - clearly going above and beyond his responsibilities as a realtor. Less ... More

My experience with Doug has been wonderful. He was helpful in every aspect of our dealings. He sold my house and found me a condo in a matter of days. He handled all my questions, the closings, and even recommended a handyman to help me finish up some projects in my condo. I would have no hesitation to recommend him(and I have) to anyone looking to sell or buy property.

Doug Mekkes was extremely helpful and persistent in my home search! He was always available and extremely flexible. He possesses knowledge on homes and what to look for when buying them and will openly voice how much he thinks a home is worth with what it needs and its condition. Doug was very focused on finding a home for me that was what I was looking for and at a price I could handle, and it was a long and rocky road for me, but he just continued pressing on with me until we found the right one! All around helpful and great guy! Less ... More

Helped me buy home
Doug was referred to us through a close friend . We had been working with a realtor that we were not happy with for about five months prior to contacting Doug. Doug listened to what we were looking for, the location and our price range. He was very knowledgeable of house foundations and basic electric and plumbing. Doug was there for us throughout the whole buying process and responded to our questions and concerns within 24 hours if not sooner. We had the keys to our new home within four months of working with Doug. Doug was great to work with and we highly recommend him. Less ... More

Doug is a very honest, sincere, and extremely helpful buyer's agent! He was amazingly helpful in our buying process of our new home! He was very knowledgable in the home buying/selling process which was great because we were first time home buyers. He helped guide us into a fair offer and then helped us get very close to the offer we were hoping to get. He was always quick to get back with us whenever we had questions or needed anything. He was even willing to help us out with the buyer of our home even though we sold it on our own. We recommend Doug as a buyer's agent to anyone looking for a home. We believe he would do a great job selling your home too! Less ... More

I found Doug very helpful. He guided me through the whole process, and did a fantastic job of negotiating on my behalf. His best quality by far is his honesty. He is a man of integrity, and he actually cares about his customers. His service was top-notch. Even after I managed to buy a house through him and have had problems with it, he has continued to assist me. He truly goes above and beyond good service!

I was surprised when I sent Doug an email on a Sunday and he responded that day. Doug is tireless and has only your best intentions at heart. When a few snafus arose (I had a complicated purchase) Doug was always my advocate and quickly solved the issues. I don't think I could have had better luck.

Just purchased my first home and Doug was great throughout the whole process. He was always quick to respond to my calls, explained every step, and answered any questions I had. My biggest concern when looking to buy a home was feeling rushed/pressured by a Realtor, but Doug was never this way. He let me know what his thoughts were, but always let me make the call and never pressured me.

I sold a house with Doug. He chose a price I thought was reasonable and in return we had four great offers and sold the house over our asking price! We sold the house in under a week. You did a great job Doug, thank you.

I have done business with Doug for the past three years as his Loan Officer. Doug treats every deal as if it was his own and goes way above and beyond for his customers. He truly cares, which in this day and age really says a lot about his professionalism and character. I always feel at ease when referring my clients to Doug and will continue to do so for many years to come.
