About Doug


Doug grew up in a small town in northwest Pennsylvania with two brothers and always as many dogs. His parents owned and operated a chain of retail furniture stores where he worked after school and during summer months. This experience developed his commitment to individualized attention and providing outstanding service to every customer.

After attending George Mason University in Virginia, Doug moved to Wilmington in 1992. Having grown up in the furniture business, he agreed to help move some friends here and immediately fell in love with the area. He initially moved to Wrightsville Beach and instantly took to the beach lifestyle, developing a love for boating, biking, and spending time near the ocean (as well as great local seafood!).

After Wrightsville Beach, Doug and his husband Ted moved to the Monkey Junction area where they lived for nearly 15 years before recently relocating to Mayfaire with their dogs Maxwell, Finnegan, and Oliver. This, combined with spending a great deal of time downtown has given him a great perspective and knowledge of the greater Wilmington area.

Doug graduated from the Leadership Wilmington program in 2002, introducing him to multiple aspects of local government and leaving him with relationships that continue to this day. He has been active in many local charities, including Lower Cape Fear Hospice, the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Habitat for Humanity, the Humane Society and several others. He truly believes that Wilmington is a place like no other and is committed to supporting his community. He has had over 22 years’ experience in corporate America and recently decided to bring his talents for being flexible and finding creative solutions to Real Estate.
