"Consider these facts: we had a small but beautiful home in The Willows of Potomac, an ideal school-location with back-road access into Washington DC. Immediately upon being contracted to sell our home, Doug produced beautiful printed and online presentations of our home and he carefully chose prospective buyers. During a period of market-downturn in the Washington DC area we showed the house 4 times, sold the house in 4 days and recognized a profit of 100%. Thirty days after listing our home for sale in Rockville, MD we were living in our new location. It was the most remarkable home sale I have ever experienced and I give full credit to Doug Crowley. You really can't ask for better service or a better outcome than this. This is a true story."
"Doug was terrific to deal with for all aspects of the sale of our home. He knew the comps, what homes in the overall area were selling for...and why. We appreciated his immediate responses and helpful tips in prepping the house for sale. We felt he really made a difference in the price we received."
"My husband and I worked with Doug to purchase our first home as well as our current home and I really can't say enough good things about him. He is very knowledgeable, gave us excellent guidance and was incredibly generous with his time. I am extremely picky about what I look for in a home and Doug was able to find the perfect homes to show us and was extremely patient with us while we took our time looking at every little detail. He never pushed his opinions on us, but rather asked the right questions and allowed us to make the best decision for our needs. Once we found the home we wanted, Doug used his excellent negotiating skills to guarantee us the best deal possible. Doug is rare in the fact that he stayed in touch with us and generally cared about how we were enjoying our new home. I don't know that many agents do that. I recommend Doug to all of our friends that are buying and selling."
"I first met Doug in my neighborhood selling another property. I knew from that initial meeting that I would hire Doug to sell my house. That decision turned out to be a very good decision. Doug is a true professional and has a wealth of experiences as a real estate agent. Doug was very responsive to my questions and concerns and i was able to sell my house, close to my asking price and within a reasonable time frame. I would use Doug again if I sold another house. I consider Doug a new friend."
"I have known Doug Crowley for many years. He is a smart REALTOR who will be very responsive to your real estate needs. Doug helped me purchase 2 houses and sell one. I highly recommend Doug as an agent who will do his best to get you the hours of your dreams or sell your house at the best price - meeting your expectations. Overall, Doug is outstanding and will provide a high level of customer service. He knows the local market and can provide the solid advice you can expect."
"He represented the seller from whom we bought the town house in Potomac, MD. And we had no agent when we purchased the property. Doug is polite, friendly, honest, and highly experienced and knowledgeable about his profession. What I find interesting is that, just like any good exponent of any art/science/profession, he makes the entire process appear simple, easy, harmonious and elegant to perform and accomplish! And for the seller and buyer the process becomes effortless! Of course, papers must be signed and decisions must be made, but seller and buyer are shielded and protected from the intricacies and often circuitous legal slang which Doug, having been a successful lawyer, explains simply and efficiently, allowing all parties involved to make knowledgeable and mutually beneficial decisions. Once the process starts, Doug guides it flawlessly and with minimum effort toward completion and the full satisfaction of the buyer and of the seller. I highly recommend Doug to anyone who wants to buy/sell a home! You will have an excellent agent on your side and will gain a good friend in the process!"
"Doug was referred to us by a friend. He is very personable and generous with his time. We had lots of questions having lived in our home for 34 years which he quickly answered. Doug knew the area and was sure of the ability to sell our home within a month or two. When potential buyers came through, he was very effective in finding information regarding their interest. When offers were presented, Doug was quick with advice and assisted greatly in the negotiations allowing us to decide on the best offer. We very much appreciated his follow up and contact after excepting the buyers offer all the way through to the closing and beyond. We most definitely would recommend Doug to others interested in selling their home."
"This is not the first time I work with Doug. And, once again, I feel that Doug's knowledge of the local market, his years of experience in real estate and his responsiveness, made the purchase of my house real easy."
"I have worked with Doug on a variety of real estate transactions over the last 10 years. He has always been very knowledgeable, and is very great to work with."
"If one has utilized the services of the same person for the past 15 years, it speaks volume and that is Doug Crowley. Doug is an excellent realtor. Dependability, reliability, consistent, prompt are some of the words that describes Doug's work. He has always guided us through the rental process and always kept our best interest in mind. I would recommend him any time as he seeks and maintains good relationships, both with us and the tenants."
"Having known Doug Crowley for more than fifteen years, he has done many real estate transactions for us. His market knowledge, attention to details, ability to work with people and above all his frank and honest management style puts him a cut above his fellow realtors. He is clearly one of the best in business and I would recommend him to anyone with complete confidence."
"We have a new baby and are looking for a house in either the Bethesda or Kensington area and Doug has been so supportive, helpful, and responsive. He has really gone above and beyond in trying to help us find the right house for our family. With the new baby's schedule, it has been difficult for us to plan ahead to go see houses sometimes but Doug has always made himself available for us, sometimes even very last minute. Also, even though we are taking our time to find the perfect home, he has never been pushy or impatient. He has really made us feel that he wants us to be completely happy with when, how, and what we choose to buy. I know that when we do buy our house, it will be the perfect one for us, and we will have Doug to thank! I highly recommend Doug and feel so thankful that he is our REALTOR!!"
"Doug Crowley was the seller's agent when I bought my home in Rockville MD in 2002. He was very knowledgeable, honest, and helpful during the negotiation and settlement process. I called upon him to list that home when I had to sell and move West. My house sold on first day on the market, due to Doug's advice on staging my home, establishing the selling price, and working with the buyer's agent."
"I have known Doug for many, many years. He is everything you could ask for in a realtor...honest, hard-working, articulate, a great communicator, and extremely knowledgeable in his field. He has been in the field a long time, and knows who the "good guys" are in the ancillary fields (mortgage brokers, appraisers, etc.). He recently helped me close an almost impossibly difficult sale. He's the best."
"It was a pleasure working with Doug to purchase my first home in Washington, DC. He made the home-buying process easy and hassle free. Doug's market knowledge and savvy negotiating skills helped me find and purchase a great property. I look forward to working with Doug in the future."
"Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2007 in Potomac, MD. I have known Doug since Jan 2007 when I met with him to sell my last home. I wanted to let you know that Doug had been outstanding and extremely professional in his dealings with us. He is very honest, kept us well informed about the market and clearly demonstrated his credibility and knowledge about real estates. We were able to sell the house in less than 10 days. He followed through until the last transaction (getting escrow deposits from the mortgage company) was completed and the check was in our hands. I also bought my current house through Doug. If I were to buy/sell a house in the future, I would definitely have Doug as my real estate agent again."
"Not only is Doug a highly experienced real estate agent, but he also is an attorney so you are getting expertise in two areas. Doug helped us sell our townhome in Potomac. He has an excellent grasp of the market and was able to guide me on setting a price that would resonate with buyers but still satisfy me in terms of what I was looking to get out of the sale. Doug arranged free of charge for a stager to come in and evaluate the condition of the townhouse in terms of making some changes that would help sell the property. Based on the advice given, some modest improvements were made and I think it really helped with the sale."
"I met Doug Crowley at a real estate seminar at the University of Maryland and am so glad I decided to stay to talk to him afterwards. Simply put, Doug is a phenomenal real estate agent that assisted us in buying our first home in College Park. One of the most helpful qualities about Doug is his availability. He worked around our schedule to see many houses. If something came on the market quickly, Doug was ready to drive from Montgomery to Prince George’s County to ensure we could see the house soon, and in rush hour traffic on several occasions. If I needed to call Doug at 9PM on a Friday night, he was available to talk through any issues. When we wanted to hurry and make an offer on a house before the weekend, Doug immediately put together an offer and worked late into the night to ensure it was ready to present to the seller’s agent first thing Saturday morning. Another excellent quality of Doug is his patience. We never felt pressed to make a decision. He asked helpful questions after each house to clarify our own thoughts but never tried to speed up our decision making. Doug was punctual and communicated with me often to make sure we knew what progress was being made on the contract after our offer was accepted. He expertly juggled communications between the sellers’ agent, our lender, the title company, and us to make sure everyone was on the same page. His list of contacts is extensive too. When we needed a home inspector, he gave us the name of an excellent inspector who found many things wrong in the first house we ended up not settling with. Doug helped us obtain a great deal with our lender and the title company -- contacts and friends of his. Last but certainly not least, I think Doug’s best quality is that he is just a truly enjoyable person to work with. He’s funny, easy going, and was genuinely interested in our lives and well-being. It was a pleasure to work with Doug, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house in the area. I’m excited to work with him again when we buy our next property."
"I highly recommend Doug Crowley for all your real estate needs in the Washington DC Metropolitan area. Doug has all the characteristics that you may be looking for from a real estate agent. He is very organized with strong attention to detail. He is aggressive and yet has a very polite attitude, plus he is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market in the Washington DC metropolitan area. We recently use Doug's services to purchase a new home for our growing family. Doug came to us as a referral from a family friend. Having used the services of other real estate agents in the past, Doug overly exceeded our expectations. My wife and I are very busy people and Doug made sure he kept us both informed of the options in the market so that we could stay on track. He constantly sent us listing of properties that met our criteria, based on our discussions. Every property in the listing met our criteria. We toured a number of these properties, but we were looking for that special place we could call home. Doug never gave up on us and took the time to understand what we were looking for. The day when we found the property, he handled the negotiations like a pro. My daily activities involve some level of negotiations and it is really hard for me to let go, Doug not only represented our interests wholeheartedly, but was able to explain in detail the pros and cons of exercising our options. Our relationship with Doug did not end the day when we moved in to our new home. He contacted us several times, to check on us and even offer to contact the seller on our behalf when a small issue came up. We have referred Doug to a number of friends and family members and we know first-hand he has taken very good care of every single one of them. For this and many reasons, we highly recommend Doug."
"When my husband and I sold our home and asked Doug Crowley to assist us. Were we ever glad that we did!! From beginning to end Doug went far beyond the call of duty and gave us the best marketing program we could have hoped for. He communicated with us frequently, kept us up to date on market conditions, advised us on pricing strategies, gave us feedback on all showings, he provided us with incredible photography that showed our home to its very best possible advantage, provided an outstanding stager who gave us amazing suggestions on how to best present our home to potential buyers, met contractors at our home when we couldn't be there, he negotiated a price and terms that we were more than happy with! Well the list just goes on and on.
Let me just say we couldn't have been happier with Doug's service. He turned what could have been a very stressful experience for us into a very pleasant, seamless, worry-free and successful one. We are very grateful to Doug for all he did for us and we would whole-heartedly recommend Doug's service to anyone at all who is looking for the best Realtor in Montgomery County, as far as we are concerned. And Doug is a very nice person on top of it all. We consider him now to be our friend. If you choose Doug, you will definitely not go wrong!!"
"I have relocated many times over the years throughout the country. Buying and selling over 10 homes I have had a lot of experience with a number of realtors. I've never dealt with a more dedicated professional than Doug Crowley. His knowledge, experience and communication skills are outstanding. He's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet and if you are buying or selling a home in the DC Metro market, I strongly suggest you speak with Doug."
