Dear Doug,


I wanted to take a moment to express my thanks and gratitude for your level of commitment, service and expertise that you displayed in the purchase of our new property in South Surrey. Some studies suggest that moving is one of life's biggest stressors; add in a job change for both myself and my wife and you could say the past few months have indeed been tough. What made things even more difficult was the fact that Kate was winding down our personal affairs in Montreal while I was here in Vancouver trying to set up our new life. All to say, I can't imagine that our situation was what you would consider the easiest scenario to work with. Your ability to navigate through these complications was second to none; you understood what we were looking for in a house, and planned visits that maximized our limited availability. What is more you did not simply look at the features of a house, but instead you steered us to neighbourhoods where you were confident our investment would grow. The one example for me that underlines your professionalism and expertise is when you walked through a house that I had identified, and pointed out concerns that I had not seen. You were able to separate the emotional draw I had to this house, and to frame our walkthrough in terms of an investment (repairs needed, quality of construction, workmanship, etc). If you had not spoken up, it was very likely that we would have made an offer on that place. It was an eye-opening moment for me, and I am grateful that you were there representing us. This is our third house purchase in the last 7 years, and while it was the most complicated in terms of logistics, you made it the most simple and certain. At all points in the process you were our trusted advisor, and both Kate and I have peace of mind in our decision as we start a new chapter of our life in Vancouver. Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

Just wanted to say thank you for all your professional work in selling my parents home in South Surrey. I had enough on my plate with placing both my parents in a senior residence and putting the house on the market. I never hesitated in letting you have a key with all of mom and dads things still in the house. I have complete confidence in you and you got mom and dad a great price. I would recommend you in a flash. Thanks again

Doug worked with me to get my house ready for sale. I met with him and his recommendations to prepare the house for sale were invaluable.

 

He arranged for a virtual photo tour which was remarkable and showed the house and garden at its best.

 

The house was sold within10 days of it going on the market and I was pleased with the price. During that 10 day period he had numerous showings of the house with numbers of prospective buyers.

 

I think it is important to work with someone who understands the real estate market and is able to work with you to assess your needs as far as timelines and price. His years of experience and expertise are definitely an asset.

 

I have worked with real estate agents in the past who were not as pro-active as Doug so I was extremely impressed with his work on my behalf.

 

I definitely would recommend Doug as a real estate agent who knows his business and works hard to get the job done the way you want it done.

Dear Doug;

My wife and I would like to let you know how pleased and so glad that we met you last year and that you were able to help us through the process of looking for and choosing the right place for us to purchase.

 

Over the many years that we bought and sold various properties, we have never been as satisfied with a realtor as we have been with you. When we first met, you went through your process of finding out what our needs were, you also over a few weeks got to truly know what our likes and dislikes were, no other realtor in past years has ever done that. Most realtors just seem to want to get it over with as quickly as possible and move on to their next client.

 

But you never did that. We remember there were many times when you would say, "I don't think this one is for you", and you were always right. You would also continually remind us "don't worry I know what you want and I will find it for you". Well you were right, we soon learned not to be worried and leave the leg work up to you.

 

Then came the day when you called us and said "I have found your future home let's have a look at it". Again you were right. It became our home and we are happy with the choice.

 

Not only did you personalize the process but you also recommended other help and services to make the tasks easier for us - financial services, legal services, etc.

 

Once again Doug, we would like to thank you so much for a job well done. It was a true pleasure to have gone through the process with you leading and guiding us along.

 

Best regards
Dane & Jo-Anne Watson

Derek Good

Dear Doug,

 

Thanks so much! What else can we say. Kathe and I wanted to let you know how much we have appreciated the work you have done on our behalf in the recent sale of our home and purchase of our new home.

 

Over the past 27 years, we have had eight moves, all involving realtors, in four different provinces. Without question, we feel your professional approach has been the best we have experienced. The negotiating process you managed on a difficult closing was very well handled. When we were feeling stress, you kept us informed, but not bogged down in the process. We are confident you were able to secure the best deal possible, on a relatively unique piece of property. We were equally impressed on your presentation of our offer on our new home, and how you worked with the elder couple wyho were moving abroad.

 

Doug it goes without saying, we highly recommend you to any one who is contemplating selling a property and would be pleased to talk to them about our experience working with you.

 

With our regards,
Derek and Kathe Good

Doug Hart is more than just a realtor. He takes the entire process of finding or selling a home literally, acting as an expert resource, facilitator, chauffeur and wise counsel for his clients, every step of the way during what is always a stressful time. He is always available and does not flinch from a problem, even though it may cost him personally.

 

Doug has become a friend to my family, someone that I can trust and will always be welcome in my home. He is much more than just a realtor!

Jerry Berriault

We were initially introduced to Doug Hart through a corporate relocation referral. But on our next move, when the choice of realtors was our own, we without question chose to use Doug's services again.

 

We found Doug to be a man of integrity, who uses his vast real estate experience and strong conviction to get things done. We feel he went above and beyond for us, all the while being a pleasure to deal with.

 

We would definitely recommend Doug Hart to anyone needing the services of a realtor.

 

Sincerely,
Wendy & Jerry Berriault

Iain and Carole

We would like to sincerely recommend Doug Hart as your realtor.

We were referred to Doug by a co-worker, and from the first moment we made contact with him, he willingly took on our quest for a home - even though our budget was modest. At no time did we feel that Doug had more important people to serve, in fact our experience ws quite the opposite. Doug was gracious, knowledgeable, professional and patient.

 

What sets Doug apart from other realtors is his uncanny ability to realize what you want and find that for you. He does this by listening to you. His sound advice and supportive counsel helped us bid on and secure a property we are really happy with.

 

We trusted Doug completely and felt supported and secure throughout the process.
