Comments from Satisfied Buyers & Sellers...

"Doug was the third realtor to assist us, and he was by far the best. We never felt Doug would rather make a sale that help us get the best offer for our home. We trusted Doug and he never pressured us. Doug always did what he said he would do. We give Doug our thanks and our highest recommendation." - A.D.

"We sold our home and purchased a new one with Doug Cooke. He advised us wisely and with insight as to prevailing market conditions and proper strategy. He negotiated a better than expected selling price on our home and protected our best interests." - D.S.

"We are extremely happy with our new home. Neither of us yet believe our luck in finding such a quality home with so many extras at a price we can afford. As a man of your word, the sale of our former house and purchase of our current home went without and obstacles. We highly recommend your services to anyone trying to sell or buy a home." - J.H.

"We tried to sell our house ourselves, but like many "by-owner" sellers, we attracted the bargain hunters and unqualified buyers. Doug never made extravagant promises he couldn't meet. He presented the best marketing plan to sell our home and worked hard from every angle to achieve it. We have now sold three homes and bought a fourth home with Doug." - J.D.

"Les and I want to express our sincere appreciation for handling the selling and purchase of our homes. We have a high regard for your marketing talent and knowledge. Our first exposure to your abilities was when you sold my parent's home on the northwest side of Grand Rapids. We were very pleased with the short amount of time that it took you to do that as well as how easy it was for my parents at their house closing. Then, you did the same thing for my aunt's home a year later. When it came time to choosing you as our realtor we felt very confident and comfortable with the decision.

When we first contacted you, Les and I did not really know what the best way was to reach our goal. You carefully asked questions to quantify our desires/needs. Then you laid out a plan that when I look back on it, was the right series of events for us. You patiently researched the chosen geographic area and found several beautiful houses in our price range for us to review. After we purchased a new house, we took your advice to promptly list our home. Not only did you sell our home within 30 days, but you also got $4,000 more for it than we listed at and there were no extra sellers costs. You were always very honest in answering our questions. You explained in detail all associated charges involved in both selling and buying aspect.

Les and I highly recommend you and would definitely choose you again over anyone else in the business if we should need your services again." - R.G.
