“In 2001 Doug and his associates approached our family with interest in purchasing our 700 acre produce farm on Wadmalaw Island, SC. We had out natural hesitations and had entertained offers to sell before but issues would arise and the deals would fall apart. Because of the many issues needed to be resolved before we could sell the deal would require a significant amount of trust and teamwork. Doug brought a different level of professionalism to the table. Months later after many meetings with County officials , countless meetings with family and extensions we closed on the sale of our farm to Doug. We would highly recommend Doug to handle your property sale or purchase as he has a wonderful ability to work wit local and state agencies to get the deal done. Most importantly and I believe this speaks more than words can say, twelve years later we continue to have a great relationship with Doug and consider him a friend.”

My experience with him has been on the residential side and he understands the development process from the beginning, selecting and valuing sites, to the end, selling the properties and everything in between, such as infrastructure, amenities, financing, dealing with regulators, design professionals and property owners. He has been very fair, honest, and reliable in all of our dealings. I would highly recommend him to someone doing a major real estate development project. ”

“In the world of development, the obtaining of HUD statements, storm-water permits, zoning approvals, and immense amount of legwork necessary just to start a development project can be a daunting task. Marketing a project, setting the values, satisfying investors and end-users is a full time job with little time left for anything else. I found while working with Doug he not only manages to jump through all of the hoops and cut the red tape, he never loses sight of the fun parts. The most rewarding and creative parts of the design process, design and construction, seeing the ideas formulated and implemented, I have found are the things that give Doug a charge to get things done and done well.
