Doug's Philosophy

Doug's philosophy on life and work is pretty simple – “do the right thing.” It was advice he often heard growing up as a child and it stuck.
Areas of Expertise -- The Mid-Peninsula...

The business of buying and selling Real Estate is a serious one, and every single step must be taken with a never-failing attention to detail. I represent my clients as though they were members of my own family and pride myself on an unwavering stance of honesty and integrity.

"Doug is a phenomenal real estate agent and trusted advisor. His 20+ years as an agent and property owner in the Bay Area, coupled with his warm people skills, made him the perfect real estate agent for us. We really valued 3 things about Doug: 1) Working with him was an educational experience-- he wanted to ensure we as buyers were fully aware of all the major components of the home buying process. 2) He was honest and always did the right thing-- even if it wasn't in his best interest, he always put us first. 3) He was an amazing listener and was patient-- we didn't know exactly what we wanted and Doug did a great job getting to know us and guide us, while not rushing us. Thanks to Doug, we ended up getting our ideal house and even moderately enjoying the process. We would 110% recommend working with Doug (we can't recommend him highly enough), especially if you are looking for someone how is data-driven, knowledgeable and you can trust"

  -Mary Liz M. , Client

"We met Doug at an open house and were immediately impressed with his knowledge and honesty. His incredible knowledge of the local and hyperlocal real estate market was apparent as soon as we began working together. He is *fantastic* at communication, which is necessary in this competitive market, and just makes everything easier. Doug was always happy to look at homes with us, and use those viewings as an opportunity to teach us about how to assess a house from foundation to roof. Once we decided to place an offer, Doug stayed up very late with us to carefully review the hundreds of pages of disclosures. He was very patient with my *many* many questions. His extensive knowledge of housing structure and repair was incredibly helpful in understanding the importance of all potential issues. He gave excellent guidance, and was very careful not to pressure our decision. Doug is attentive, knowledgeable, and honest- simply the best! "

  -Gary S., Client

"My wife and I have worked with several real estate professionals over the years, but it wasn't until we met Doug Gonzalez that we learned what a real partnership was. Within the first 10 minutes of meeting him out at the very first property we were interested in, we knew that working with Doug was going to be a very different experience. We learned more about what to look for in a home in one hour than we had in all our previous home searches. Doug is an incredibly hard worker and tirelessly shared with us specific listings that he thought we be a good fit, met us out at properties we liked at odd times or on a moments notice, challenged us to think about our long term housing goals, and wrote up several late night offers to ensure we put in a competitive bid before a deadline. One of thing things we admire about him most is that he isn't motivated by finding people a home, he is motivated by finding people the right home. "

  -Michael R., Client

"It's my absolute pleasure to recommend Doug Gonzalez with Coldwell Banker. We interviewed several realtors and found Doug to be honest, dependable, and very knowledgeable. Beyond that, he is a fantastic communicator and incredibly thorough. We met Doug during a difficult time, a death on our family, and he really stepped up for us and took the reigns of our entire project. We would still be waiting to go on the market today if it wasn't for Doug and his team! Doug was the equivalent of a general contractor and realtor on our project. He helped us gather bids, hire and manage all of the subcontractors that worked on the property. He also advised us where, and perhaps more importantly, where not to spend money. We did all of this via calls/emails from another state and it was never a problem because there was always fantastic communication from Doug and his team. They are very thorough and we always felt like we were in good hands. "
