“Hi Doug,
The both of us would like to thank you so much for selling our place in Campbellford.
We were impressed with your level of expertise and dedication when so many other real estate agents fail to come through on their promises. Douglas and I really appreciate
you walking us through the maze of paperwork and explaining every aspect of finalizing the deal.
We will certainly recommend you to anybody considering selling their property.
“extremely satisfied customers” “

“Hi Douglas,
Sending you this card because Jay and I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work!
We loved working with you and we LOVE our new home.
Can’t wait to have You and Daniel over for a BBQ!”

Jen and Jay

“Hi Douglas,
I wanted to send a few words of gratitude your way.
It was great to have you as our agent.
You handled all the details
with much expertise.
I especially liked the way you related to dad and mom.
You were very clear and concise in your explanations and
understanding of their sensitivities in the selling of their home of 25 years.
We are all glad of the way you promoted the home, the setting up for
the open houses, and the great knowledge of the real estate market.
You were always available.
Good luck in the coming years!”

Joan Kelly

“I cannot say enough about Douglas’ professionalism and hard work. Douglas helped me prepare my home for sale and was in contact with me constantly to see how I was doing throughout the entire process. Sometimes he would just “check in” to see how I was feeling because I had been in my home for 23 years. He is such a professional, I am finding it hard to believe he has only been doing this for a couple of years. I had heard about Douglas from friends who had said he was very good, and I have been referring him to my friends and family ever since. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Douglas.
Best regards,”

Kim C.

“Hi Douglas,
You put together an amazing advertising campaign for us in the Northumberland,Toronto and Golden Horseshoe area and together with Astrid probably covered most of the globe with pictures and stories of our property. The open houses and showings you guys put together were nothing short of perfection.

Douglas; Beverly, Sharon and I want to sincerely thank you for both your expertise and your patience in marketing Ravenstone. We listened to your advice, followed your lead and now celebrate with you.

Sharon and I are now looking for our retirement home. We will be continuing to follow your listings and your Twitter so keep us updated as to what’s happening in Northumberland and with you personally. You are a good friend to have.”

Beverly, Sharon & Dennis

“Douglas made us feel like we were the only clients he was dealing with. He never appeared rushed or too busy to help us. He always had time for us and for our questions. He handled the whole process excellently. His feedback every step of the way, made us feel we were well looked after. We have bought/sold 6 properties in our lifetime, and this one was the most smooth. Douglas is the best and most professional representative we’ve ever had.”

Margaret Dixon

“Douglas made the whole process of selling my home easy. His advice on staging, his knowledge of the market and his support, through the process, was excellent. He explained every step and was always in touch with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling.”

Jason Hubbard

“Mr. Hotte handled a problematic negotiation with multiple realtors representing the Sellers, and difficult Sellers as well. I was always kept very well appraised on all anomalies and problems as they arise and were handled very quickly and professionally by Mr. Hotte. Mr. Hotte also took the time to show me the neighborhood to understand the local real estate values and availabilities in the area.
I would use his services again and would recommend him to Family and Friends.”

D. Hope

“Over the years, I have worked with 3 real estate agents in purchasing and selling homes. Douglas is the 4th agent and by far the one that I am most impressed with. He stays in touch throughout the whole process and is always available if I have any questions.”

“Couldn’t have asked for a more thoughtful agent, he was always available and ready with the information we needed or required. The best agent we have ever dealt with!
Douglas was great…. very personable, friendly and kept us in the loop through the whole process.”
