Doug is a Colorado native, born in Fort Collins and raised in Colorado Springs at the foot of Pikes Peak. He is a life-long (well, almost – he started at age 5) golfer and current single-digit handicapper. He worked his way through New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, played on the golf team and majored in marketing. He returned to Colorado after graduation to be close to the mountains that bring him such delight and is a 39-year (and counting!) resident of the southwest Denver metro area.
Doug is committed to honesty, authenticity, and integrity in all aspects of his life. He is keen to learn, adapt and improve – to be better than he was yesterday. He’s a servant-minded leader seeking to inspire change that makes a difference for people. He anchors all in his spirituality and faith in God and believes if he is not giving away more than he’s getting, he’s not doing life right.
Doug partners with sellers and buyers – moving up, downsizing, relocating, and investment – to help with the purchase and sale of single-family homes, patio homes, townhomes, and condos. He has a special interest in lifestyle living that involves low maintenance homes in and around golf course communities. He brings an extensive background in sales, marketing, negotiations, and operations to his real estate consulting business, focused on delivering expertise and solutions for clients buying or selling.
Doug’s creative side is fed through participation in the Colorado Chorale, a community choral/theater group, where he sings, dances, and teams with others to entertain audiences around the Denver metro area. His volunteer community service includes serving in myriad ways at church and leading boards of directors, fund-raising, project management, marketing, event planning, training and managing significant numbers of volunteers.
Doug’s passions include his family, competitive amateur golf, reading, praying, traveling, smooth jazz, and Broadway musicals. James Taylor, Norah Jones, Michael Bublé, Chris Botti are among his favorite musicians. Scotland (the birthplace of golf, of course!), Ireland, Italy, New York are among his favorite destinations. He enjoys warm temperatures, smooth Scotch, and pepperoni-mushroom-spinach pizza.
