A professional in the real estate industry since 2000, Doug prides himself on his customer service. He is always accessible to his clients, striving to build lifelong client relationships.
Since he was young, Doug was always drawn to architecture. After visiting a Frank Lloyd Wright home for the first time, he was instantly interested in the design aspect of structures. This interest turned into talents, allowing him to create value for clients through staging and design today. When he attended school at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, his interest in real estate became his focus. He earned a degree in Finance with a concentration in real estate investment.
Doug’s first professional experience was at Arthur Anderson LLP in their valuation practice where he worked performing commercial real estate valuation, commercial real estate consulting, business valuation, and cost segment analysis. He also spent time at a commercial real estate investment company as an analyst. When he decided to become a full-time residential broker in 2002, he immediately knew he found the right fit. As a top producing agent, it wasn’t long before he was asked to recruit, mentor, and train other agents while contributing to a management role as a sales manager.
Now a full-service broker at Compass, he maximizes the company’s strong brand, leading-edge resources, and staff to support his clients. After many years in the business, Doug has worked on a variety of deals, offering extensive experience with each transaction. He has found success throughout his career, during the highs and lows of the market. From working with first-time homebuyers to supporting CEOs, CFOs, major executives, and real estate investors, he puts every client first. By combining his finance and investment expertise with his years of experience, he can guide clients through every step of the process.
Doug’s main goal is to help people get wherever they need to go. He also has a group of recommended professionals he works with from inspectors, lenders, and beyond, he’s there every step of the way.
