Doug is so confident about his knowledge of real estate in our area, and you can feel this the moment you first meet him. He made me feel that he was on my side and there for me from the start. He made suggestions on repairs and changes before the home went on the market. He came by while the work was being done, making sure all was going well. He was deligent about open house and exposure of the property. My recommendation is if you want a realtor who goes beyond the norm, works hard and is honest, then Doug Anderson is that person.
He was so on top of using the computer to expedite our search Of multiple properties thru his website. I loved being able to delete all the homes that had no appeal without having to view in person. We have never been able to zoom in on the area and then purchased home with out Doug's direction and guidance. We are not big on docusign techniques so he patiently went through hardcopies with us old folks. We appreciated his availability even during a cub scout camp out! Would definately use him again.
Doug worked very patiently with us over one year period showing us homes in East Bay area and guiding us for respective offers as the market was hot and the properties were selling quickly. He knew the local markets and house pricing well. He showed us houses on our schedule and picked the listings in our pricing profile range. He helped us in financing and closing process with all the paperwork. We recommend him highly for buying/selling homes in his territory.

Doug both staged and sold our previous home, which sold the first day. He also found and helped us buy our current one. He was so helpful, courteous, and professional during the entire venture. We are so grateful for all his help and expertise, and are very impressed at his knowledge and skill regarding his career as a real estate broker in such a competitive area.
I recently purchased a home in Alamo and Doug was a true professional. The transaction went very smooth and he was always looking out for my best interest. His attention to detail in regards to the mass quantity of paperwork today was impressive. He always kept me informed and provided the documents efficiently. Doug's knowledge of the market and his service met my expectations and will use him in any future transactions.
Doug was wonderful to work with! He helped us sell our home with a short sale. I thought the process was going to be very stressful and overwhelming, but Doug made everything virtually painless for us. Short sales can take a lot of time and he was in contact with us the whole time keeping us up to date on everything that was going on with the process. He was available whenever we had questions and was always super helpful. We highly recommend Doug if you want to work with a honest, hardworking, knowledgeable Realtor! He was the best and I hope to work with him again!

“...One real estate agent named Doug Anderson was religious about providing market report blog posts on a near weekly basis on the East Bay - Walnut Creek, Danville, Blackhawk, Dublin, Pleasanton. He talked consistently about short sales in the market reports. I provided my mom with Doug's contact information and the names of two or three other agents from ActiveRain.
My parents spoke with each of the agents. They developed a very good relationship with Doug. Doug was very patient with their cross country home search and all the issues that go along with relocation, retirement and downsizing. They started to work with Doug actively right as the real estate market was accelerating in the Bay Area. I believe my parents put three or four offers on homes, bidding 10-15% OVER the asking price. They were outbid on every one. (The Bay Area is crazy right now.)
In the end, they bought a house with Doug in Pleasanton, CA and they close on March 22nd!
It's been an incredible experience seeing the world of ActiveRain from a consumer point of view.
Doug - thank you for taking care of my parents!
And thank you ActiveRain for connecting my parents with Doug!”

Doug was a pleasure to work with and sold my condo within 3 months & it was a short sale. Some short sales take up to 13 months if not longer. I received many offers as soon as it listed, but one was for more than I paid for it so he quickly went into action & we received that price. He knows the in's and out's of the business and I did not have to bring any money to the closing. It was all incorporated in the final documents. Doug knows the marketing side as well as the mortgage side. He has an awesome up beat personality and was always there when I needed him to answer my questions. If you need a Real Estate Broker, Doug Anderson is your man & he is extremely connected within the community. With me living in the state of IL, this was a plus/positive for me.
Thanks Doug for an awesome job.

Doug Anderson helped us sell our parents' home at a time when we had a lot of other things to deal with. A great thing about working with Doug is that we could trust him to "just handle it" when something came up that we had neither the time nor energy to deal with ourselves. We felt we could trust him in most every situation and it was a relief to actually be able to hand certain things off to someone else and be confident it would get done as advertised. Doug is no-nonsense, but that means he is also no-surprises and no-drama as well. If we could only count on our doctors, plumbers, and fast food cashiers to simply do what they're supposed to do as firmly and as confidently as we could count on Doug, the world would be a much easier place to deal with. To Doug I say, "At a difficult time, thank you for making our lives a little bit easier instead of a lot more difficult."
Doug was a pleasure to work with and sold my house quickly and at a great price! He knows the in's and out's of the business - from marketing to the mortgage side. He's connected and was able to get multiple offers at a great price. Thanks Doug!
