"Thanks to Doug's hard work and dedication, we are happily settled in our lovely new home. We were not actively looking to move, but contacted Doug very unexpectedly when we saw a listing of his come on the market that met our family's needs in every way. From that first phone call, Doug guided us through the entire process -- from making an offer that was accepted with several others also on the table, to getting our own house prepared and on the market in less than a week, to selling our house within only a matter of days. To say that the first week was rapid fire is an understatement, but with Doug's guidance, we somehow got it all done and maintained our sanity to boot! After that, we faced some unanticipated delays with closing on the sale of our house, but thanks to Doug's dogged determination to find a solution to each and every obstacle -- at any time day or night -- we worked our way through them. Doug is truly a credit to his profession - and simply put - a great guy all around. We are now in what we hope will be our "forever home", and for that, we will always be thankful to Doug. What's more, we not only found a stupendous realtor through this process, but we met someone who we are proud to now count among our friends. Thank you a million times over, Doug." - Buyer Client
"Where to begin? I can’t imagine a better outcome for the sale of my home. As a single mother with a full-time teaching job, I needed several things in order to survive the sale of my home: a fair listing price, a timely sale, local resources and an agent who understood and appreciated my situation. I got every one of those things and more working with Doug Schmidt. From the first time my son and I met him, he was warm and friendly (even brought cookies!). During every step of the process, Doug was accessible and more than helpful. With Doug’s help pricing the house right, it sold in 24 hours with multiple offers and a final sale price over asking. He helped me negotiate the terms, put me in touch with local resources when it came to making repairs prior to the closing (Doug knows everyone!) and even met repair people at my house when I was at work. He made the entire process as easy as possible for me. I would recommend Doug to anyone looking to have a positive experience when selling or buying a home. I can’t say enough positive things about Doug. We certainly hope to stay in touch with Doug and if we decide to move again, he’ll be the one I call. As my five year old says, “Doug is the best!” Truly!" - Seller Client
"As a first-time homebuyer on a fairly tight budget. I can't imagine how I would have gotten through the process without the great advice and superlative education of my agent at Brick House. Local, small business... lots of heart, socially conscious... integrity and a real commitment to their clients... what's not to love?" - Buyer Client
"Doug worked with us tirelessly until we found the perfect home. He was extremely accessible throughout the process even on vacation. His knowledge of Holliston was unrivaled finding us the perfect home for our budget. I would highly recommend him to anyone." - Buyer Client
“We started working with Doug while he was on vacation! While on his vacation he still was so quick in getting back to me and my husband for any questions we had. And he was able to book appointments for us to go see homes we were interested in. The negotiation process was tough for us, this was our dream house and there were times that I thought we were not going to get it. But Doug made it happen with the back and forth between us and the seller’s agent. He answered all my questions, and they were a lot, and he gave us a book that was so great at explaining the home buyer experience from beginning to end. THANK YOU Doug! We love our new home!" - Buyer Client
"Doug Schmidt respected our budget and newness as buyers, showing us the places we were interested in, but also showing how our options could stretch in location or property type and we ended up with a perfect new home. He was available at all stages of the process and full of experience." - Buyer Client
"Douglas Schmidt was absolutely fantastic to work with for the sale of our home. Our new home is out of state and when we hadn’t sold our existing home when it came time for the move, Doug kept a close and careful watch over our empty house while we were 700 miles away. Doug was aggressive with open houses and advertising through social media and the internet and he was in constant contact with us the whole time. When winter came and we were watching the news reports of Massachusetts being buried under snow, Doug kept our minds at ease by checking the house frequently, making sure there was no damage from ice dams and water. When we had an unexpected showing and needed to find someone to shovel the walk properly, Doug went and made sure it was done. When we had a buyer, Doug was fantastic in making sure the paperwork was correct and handled quickly. Trying to sell your home from so far away is one of the most stressful things I’ve experienced and I’m pretty sure Doug’s compassion, work ethic, and thoroughness is what saved me from an ulcer. Doug has been phenomenal from start to finish and if we had to do it again, we’d most definitely work with Doug!" - Seller Client
