Doug is not only knowledgeable, he is a straight shooter and a hard worker. I am in the process of performing my own 1031 tax-deferred exchange on a rental property of mine. I am selective when it comes to financial services (as I am in the real estate business myself) and I feel comfortable and confident partnering with Doug. Perhaps most of all, I appreciate his level of expertise when it comes to long-term planning and strategy. I have young children and look forward to leveraging Doug's knowledge to protect and provide for them in the decades to come.

This was my first time doing a 1031 Exchange, and I had a million questions. Doug and Cindy both were very generous and kind in answering all my questions and shepherding the whole process, which was seamless and even fun. I found a great property and couldn't be happier. Many thanks to Doug and Cindy.

We had an amazing experience to meet Doug today as a initial consultation to learn the 1031 exchange process. We are very impressed with the following:
1) The effective turn around time to meet Doug by filling an on line form of Fidelity National Title web page.
2) Doug is personable, knowledgeable, patient, and professional.
3) I came with a long list of questions, Doug was able to articulate the responses and shared his experiences, most importantly, to make us feel at ease.
Thanks, Doug for your valuable consultation!

This was not my first exchange, but it was the one that I will always remember for it was seamless. Doug is so approachable and direct. He is ready to talk and explain the rationale behind his recommendations. He is all about building a relationship with his client whether it involves a paltry (mine) sum of money or a significant sum. He really is there to educate the client so they make the best choice and I felt no "hidden agendas" or manipulation..Thank you so very much for your service Doug.

Doug's advice was extremely informative and helpful. I'm working on a unique project subdividing property with a few moving pieces. His insight and knowledge was exactly what I needed to feel comfortable moving forward. I highly recommend sitting down with Doug for any 1031 exchange questions or concerns.

Doug was invited by a Ticor Title Company to speak on the basics of 1031 Tax Deferred exchanges. He did a great job of explaining a complex concept in a simple way. I look forward to his next presentation. Each time I learn more.

His class was superb. I have been to several
Other classes where the Instructor did not have the knowledge to correctly advise clients. Doug is professional yet down to earth and explains everything in detail and understandable manner.

Doug was amazing in his knowledge and delivery of 1031 Exchange information and the pros/cons of investing in Opportunity Zones. Everyone in the room was engaged and there were many questions, which Doug readily answered. We invite the opportunity to have him speak to our office again.

Doug's knowledge and experience on both 1031 exchanges and opportunity zone investments is second to none. There's a lot of misleading and false information out there and it's essential for investors/brokers to have a resource like Doug.

Doug was very informative and made a fairly dry subject interesting AND fun! His sense of humor was good to experience (jokes—-not so much :) — . We could tell he loves his job and wants to share his knowledge with everybody he can and especially with others who can help him spread good practices with money. I hope he joins us again with more great information!
