Clients are saying:
"Doug Wortman and his team were strong advocates for us in the process of selling our home.
From the moment he and his team walked into our home, he was respectful and transparent regarding ways to position our home to be sold in the marketplace.
Once the home was on the market, we had weekly updates regarding online traffic as well as conversations he had with other realtors. These data points helped us make decisions regarding enhancements to our position in the marketplace.
I would strongly recommend Doug and his team if you are looking to sell your home. Ours sold in 26 days. He was professional, courteous and always available when we called or texted."
"I rarely pen reviews but Doug warrants one. Doug has worked with us for the last year beginning with answering his phone on a Sunday morning thru 3 offers culminating finally in our new home purchase. Doug could be a CIA agent, nothing rattles him! He continually rolled with the twists and turns we threw at him always maintaining his cool and professionalism - more so than I would have. With multiple properties I interact with many real estate agents and contractors and Doug is far and away the best. Run to him when you need to buy and/or sell!
"Doug was very responsive, helpful, willing to go the extra mile to help sell our home. As the seller and traveling extensively for work, we needed information and Doug did an excellent job informing us regularly throughout the process - knew when to email versus when to text (for more urgent items). Doug was very patient yet appropriately firm with my constant questions and requests. Overall, he was a delight to work with!"
"Doug Wortman was the agent who represented us in our search for a house to buy. We were coming from abroad, which can bring many doubts, but Doug managed to provide all the information we needed, in a very professional and efficient way. He gave us support all along our buying process."
"Doug, was a great supporter to help me with this process. From driving me around to know much better the area, from showing all possibilities and its pros/cons, being always extremely accessible and open to discuss, recommend, suggest, support. I had an outstanding experience, therefore, Thank You Doug."
