We found that home in Royal Highlands thanks to Doug DuVarney. No other realtor that we contacted had more knowledge and truly understood our needs as Doug. Not only did he take care of us before the sale, but after as well, which meant so much to us. While making this major purchase, Doug went out of his way to answer all our questions and concerns. If you are looking for a realtor who would give you personal attention in purchasing your new home, we would highly recommend Doug DuVarney.
His professionalism and personal caring should be the model for all agents. He is knowledgeable, responsive, reliable, and affable just to mention a few of his qualities! My wife and I began our Florida Internet research over two years ago and were lucky to find Doug’s web page early in the process. The search engine on his site is by far the best tool available in Florida. After compiling our short list of communities in the Leesburg area, we contacted Doug with a list of what and where we wanted to visit. His insight and familiarization of the area is amazing, and the personal coaching of what and where to include or exclude was most valuable. What makes Doug not only a number one agent and a very caring individual on all levels is his attention to detail and follow-up after the sale. His tireless efforts in helping with utility contacts, sorting out house operational issues, and providing access for various contractors has been invaluable. We came looking for our Golden Years’ retirement home and found an incredible friend as well!
Our own experience was made so much easier once we found the 'right' person and by right person we mean a very dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced person who knows the homes he sells, the materials it was built with and the company who built it. He can provide you with any information you need and if he can't, he'll direct you to someone who can. He is a full service realtor and will work with you from beginning to the end and wants the buyer to be satisfied with the home they are purchasing and will answer any question he can about that home. We had such a good experience working with Doug and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He made our buying a new home actually happen and we love it here. We can't say enough about how much he did for us. Thank you, Doug.
Throughout the years, we have been involved in several home sale transactions while living up North. We never had a realtor that worked as hard and kept in touch with us as thoroughly as did Doug. Whenever there was a showing, by him or another realtor, he would immediately get back to us with feedback. He would always give us ample notice as to when there would be a showing and he had several open houses on the weekends. In addition, he would keep us abreast of the comparable sales that occurred in the community and made suggestions throughout as to the best selling price for our home. He was always patient, consistent, and upbeat with us. Even after the sale, when some repair work that had not been completed prior to the sale needed completion, he kept in touch with the repairman and with us to make sure that everything was done sufficiently for the new owners. We would highly recommend Doug to anyone coming to the Leesburg area in need of a home.
The idea of spending another winter in Wyoming didn't appeal to either of us! The first Realtor we contacted seemed to have little interest in showing any place that met our criteria. After we returned home, that Realtor just stopped communicating. Because we had fallen in love with Lake County, we started looking for homes on-line and discovered Royal Highlands and Doug DuVarney. When we first emailed him, he responded immediately, provided all the information we requested, and answered every question. Over the next weeks he emailed MLS listings so we spent lots of time taking virtual tours as well as communicating with Doug. We got to know the community so well that by the time we came back to Florida in April, we had pretty much decided on the home we are enjoying right now. We like to tell folks that in this age of electronic communication we essentially bought our home on-line. But, we could not have found the perfect place without Doug. In addition to being knowledgeable and helpful, he truly listened to us and we believe that is one of the most important attributes a Realtor can possess. We would recommend Doug DuVarney without qualification.
His professionalism was evident from the outset, with a thorough presentation covering comparable home values and the steps he would be taking to present our home to get the highest possible sales price. His knowledge of the community was invaluable in determining that price. Throughout the process, Doug was in constant contact to ensure we knew what was going on and this continued completely through the closing. He was also always available to answer our questions. We could not be happier to recommend Doug to be your realtor!
