Doug was born in the United States and grew up on the west coast in Washington State outside of Seattle. After meeting his wife, who was from Saratoga on the Central Coast, he made the move to Australia. "We rented a fabulous two bedroom apartment across the street from the ocean... the location was inspiring and really cemented my decision to begin a career in Real Estate."
He started as a sales assistant in 1997 with the George Brand Real Estate Office in Kincumber until he made the decision to focus on the beach side suburbs where he and his wife were already investing in property.
Doug gave up his American Citizenship to become an Australian in 2000 and became a Principal Partner with George Brand Real Estate Terrigal in 2001 and his beach side office looks after the entire 2260 postcode for the George Brand network. Doug and his staff of Sales Agents and Property Managers have helped thousands of families with their various Real Estate needs.
Doug and his family live in Terrigal where they love the relaxed coastal lifestyle. He and his family spend most of their days together playing on the beach, dining at any of Terrigal's cafes or restaurants and staying fit by exercising at 'The Haven' and running laps up Terrigal's famous landmark 'The Skillion'.
Doug's company motto is modeled after how he finds the Central Coast "...honest, friendly and relaxed..."
