"We met Doug at an open house. He was very attentive to our needs and our unique situation. It was our first time buying a home and he was a great help throughout the entire process. He was knowledgeable, honest, and helped us with all the negotiations, inspections, and paperwork. I would highly recommend Doug Colliflower."
