We truly enjoyed working with Doug. He was very responsive to our needs and was quick to help with any arrangements or requests.

We would definitely use his services again.
This is the second occasion we have had the opportunity to use Doug Bris-Bois to purchase and sale a house. Doug was very thorough going over the process of selling our former home. He kept us updated throughout the process and answered any questions either by phone, e-mail and in person (he was always available). Our home was on the market for less than a month.
My wife and I would highly encourage anyone who is ready to sell or purchase a home to contact Doug Bris-Bois.
My husband and I worked with Doug this past year. This was particularly challenging because we live in NJ and were purchasing a home in Oak Island. Doug was AMAZING! He listened to us and researched and found properties that met our criteria so to maximize valuable time during our house hunting trips. Doug was extremely responsive to our calls, emails and countless questions. Doug is honest, professional and plenty patient! After offer, Doug used expert negotiating skills to get us our new home within budget. He was invaluable throughout the inspection, appraisal and due diligence process. He went above and beyond in every aspect of our purchase, and at distance this meant so much to us. Even after our purchase we rely on Doug to answer questions about local conditions and events; he responds graciously and willingly. He is a consummate real estate professional and an extraordinary human being, and we very highly recommend him to everyone looking to purchase a home.
My husband and I highly recommend Doug. I cannot say enough good things about him. He is an excellent realtor. His professionalism, customer service and market knowledge is outstanding. He goes above and beyond what you would expect. I don't think we could work with any other realtor, as we were thoroughly satisfied with our experience with Doug. Everything was handled so well. He continues to be there for us and on top of everything else he has a great sense of humor! Obviously we highly recommend him!
We have used Doug twice. He sold our home five years ago and arranged for a home purchase at the same time. He has just sold our present home as well. He is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and very well prepared with helpful statistics and ideas. He negotiated this present sale in a professional manner and kept us well informed throughout the process and went out of his way to make things simple. This closing was the most seamless and timely one we have ever experienced and we would definitely recommend as a buyer's agent or as a listing agent.
Doug's professionalism is exceptional. He responded quickly when I had questions or concerns. I appreciated his advice regarding the listing price of my home. He compared neighborhood comps in making a fair market value recommendation.
Doug was our selling agent. He is very professional. Always addressed questions, issues or concerns expeditiously. He did an in depth market analysis for us which was invaluable when pricing our home. His level of service is impressive.
I met Doug about 10 years ago, and as I have sought information about the lot sales picture for our lot on Oak Island he was very attentive with timely and accurate information. When my wife and I decided to sell our lot we were confident that we would receive the best representation in Doug that could be had. He fulfilled all our expectations with his professional and prompt attention.
I am not giving the exact address of the lot, nor have I a Zillow account or want one.
We spent a few weeks with Doug in 2014 when we moved to this area from Virginia. Doug quickly became family to us, dropping by our rental to give us updates. I trusted him, and he turned out to be worth all of the trust I invested in him! He spent many days, evenings, weekends with us to find the home we wanted. We found it and after a couple of years, we are still in love with it. I feel that Doug and his wife are now friends, and I highly recommend him if you are interested in purchases in the area.
Doug took the time to acquaint us with several different communities in the area, sharing information on amenities, local government format, POA interactions, etc, which allowed us to create our own pros and cons list for each.
He was able to pick up clues on our likes/dislikes while we were looking at properties to fine-tune our list for viewing. Doug was patient, professional and very accommodating. We were working with a short timeframe, and Doug was quick to respond to all our needs, and stayed focused on the process through closing.
Being new to this part of the country, Doug shared information on local issues, such as climate, weather, culture, to help us with our transition to the area.
Doug Bris-Bois exceeded all our expectations, and we would recommend him as your realtor without hesitation.

At the outset Doug provided local knowledge of the current market. He helped us establish a selling price that would be attractive and competitive with similar properties. He helped us evaluate the buyers offer and suggested a counter offer that was accepted. My time involved in the sale was limited as Doug did all the work. He remained involved throughout the closing procedures.
Throughout the entire procedure Doug made me feel comfortable.

He accepted and built a very professional marketing plan and we enjoyed an excellent relationship during the experience of selling this property during a down market. I hold Doug in the highest respect, and his professionalism is second to none. I have referred others to Doug and would select him again were I in need of a good professional.
