I found Doug and Becky to be extremly effecient and professional in every detail of my relationship with them. Their prompt responses and concern for not only me, but the people with whom I was dealing, made for a very smooth and comfortable experience.
Doug was a great agent to work with. He was knowledgeable in providing the right neighborhood for what I was looking for, and was quick to respond when needed. I would highly recommend working with him.
I happened upon Doug Spitz because he followed up with my partner and I after a showing. He was extremely responsive, always helpful and willing to simply get things done. That’s what we needed, as we wouldn’t have gotten the home we wanted without his tenacity and incredible client service.
Doug is someone who’s immediately disarming, kind and willing to listen to where you’re coming from. I’ve known many realtors, and I have to say that I’ve yet to meet anyone who comes close to Doug’s genuine character.
Doug was fantastic to work with. He was receptive to our needs, and advised us all the way through the process. He was always available, and never wavered in his dedication to us. He exceded my expectaions, and I’m very pleased with the entire experience.
Doug was very helpful in purchasing my new home. I never felt pressured or rushed. He held on with me for a year and a half until I finally purchased a home. He always answers his phone and has a lot of knowledge on the Cincinnati/NKY area. I will look forward to using him as my realtor for when I sell my house.
Doug was great to work with through the whole process. He has even provided us support after the sales process was over when he did not have to. Doug is great.
I have know Doug for several years and he recently sold my home. Doug was very prepared and well-versed in the area’s real estate market. He provided great guidance throughout the process. Selling a home can be stressful and Doug (and Becky, his assistant) did absolutely everything right to make this process easy and smooth. I highly recommend working with Doug!
Doug created a unique binder on my property including comps and his capabilities to represent and sell my property. He made me feel good about selling my property and was very positive about market fort it. He was direct about what improvements I needed to do and what was not necessary to sell it quickly. I received an offer within a week from when it live on the web site. He guided me through the many counter offers and requests for information from the buyers. His expertise and advice during the negotiation process helped us come to a satisfactory agreement despite some issues with the paperwork and bank loan process.
Doug is very knowledgeable about the Cincinnati area. Whether you are looking to move to the city or to the burbs, he can assist you quickly and competently. He helped us buy our first home in an up and coming area. We would recommend Doug to all of our friends and family. He was easy to communicate with via phone and e-mail. Also, he was willing to schedule showings at our convenience.
Doug was helpful, trustworthy, kind, and very responsive. He guided us through the process of buying our first home. He made sure to answer all our questions and only offered his personal opinion when asked. Doug is willing to go above and beyond to help his clients.
Doug worked diligently to help me find a home that would suit my needs in a difficult market, where there was low inventory. I truly appreciated his responsiveness and client first attitude. He provided excellent professional services connections and leveraged his personal network to my aid. Doug’s character is outstanding and he is committed to doing the right thing and achieving the optimal outcome for his client. I would highly recommend Doug and will certainly plan to work with him again.
Doug is a great person and excellent real estate professional. He works hard and is always willing what it takes to sell your house. Some notes: -uses a professional photographer -uses social media in selling your house -has a network of buyers -is extremely knowledgable about the urban core -loves dogs
Doug is a consummate professional who was very helpful and knowledgeable in the screening properties, showing me properties and throughout the contractual process of buying and closing on my home. I would use Doug and his assistant, Becky again in a heartbeat as it was a very pleasant experience.
Hands down the most wonderful real estate agent in without a doubt Cincinnati, maybe even the world. Not only will he get to know you and your desires in a house/condo/townhouse but he will go out of his way to make sure that you get everything out of the buying process that you can. He is the most patient kind knowledgeable person out there. He has experience in building houses, knows the greater Cincinnati area like the back of his hand and is available at quite literally any time. I can’t say enough good things, he helped me find my dream house, went out on a limb and thought I would love it and sure enough it is the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me and I owe it all to him.
From our first conversation with Doug, through until after final closing on the sale of our house, Doug was a consummate professional. Doug had more thorough knowledge of our neighborhood then we did and marketed our house with that knowledge. Our house sold much faster than we ever anticipated (less than one week!) and for more than we ever thought we could sell it for. Doug stayed in constant contact with us throughout the process and kept us well prepared throughout the process. Doug was always available to answer questions and provide guidance. I could not be happier with my experience. If I were buying or selling a house in Cincinnati, Doug would be my first call!
Doug was a professional. In my opinion, he worked tirelessly, and went above and beyond what I thought an agent would do. I would recommend Doug, without hesitation.
Doug was incredibly thorough, knew the neighborhood, was quick to respond with any questions I had and supported me with any decisions with offers and contract details. He had Open Houses and marketing materials ready and sold my house in 6 weeks! I would recommend him to anyone!
Doug really made our move from out of state easy. He worked with our schedule in finding a home and negotiated the deal fast and efficiently. I would recommend Doug.
I would highly recommend Doug Spitz to sell your home. He was always professional, passionate about his profession, dedicated to us as sellers, very knowledgeable about the sales in our area, quick to respond to our calls and quite a pleasant individual.
When I sold my house, Doug was an excellent partner to me. He had a clear expertise in the Downtown Cincinnati market. Accordingly, from pricing to marketing and negotiation, Doug had a clear and helpful point of view to share. His style is that the seller is in charge of the key decisions, but always had a valuable perspective to share. In the end, I sold quickly and was satisfied with the deal. Becky and Doug did a great job for me, and I appreciate all their support.
Doug was very easy to deal with very knowledgeable of the Cincinnati area. His openness in discussions helped in making it an easy process when working to find and purchase a new house. I would recommend to all folks that are in need of house, to contact and use doug.
I’ve worked with Doug Spitz three different times, the last one on selling my house. Doug and his assistant Becky have always commanded themselves with integrity and professionalism. Working with Doug and his office has been a pleasant experience which I has not always been the case with other agents in the region.
He is professional and straight work. Has a large network of agents to reach out to show property. Diligent in house listing details and showing. Will absolute recommend him to close friends.
Doug and his team are AWESOME!! Back in January Doug met with me and my husband after business hours at his office to sit down with us and go through the home buying process. He had a detailed personalized booklet made as a reference for us to use along the way. Once we found a house we liked (only looked at 4) he was so helpful in helping us understand our next steps. We experience some storms along the way when it came to our financing but he and his team worked as a liaison between us and the bank. He was able to provide insight and also comfort when we didn’t understand what was going on. He willingness to connect with us as often as needed (even when he went on vacation) defined his character. He was persistent to make sure all jobs were completed from our inspection report. He didn’t accept subpar work and we got the quality we deserved. We love our home and plan to be here for many years, but if I’m ever again in the real estate business he’s my guy. We couldn’t have made it thru such and stressful process of it weren’t for him and his team. #ClassAct #QualityService
Doug Spitz is the reason for my happiness in OTR! He found me the perfect spot, had excellent follow up, and really cared about me as a person through the entire process. Bravo! Mary Finch The new “old kid” in town
We contacted Doug about selling our riverside house in Mount Adams after contacting several other realtors. The first realtor – from a company with a very active presence in our neighborhood – had previously put half a dozen fliers through our mail slot offering to sell our house. I guess he wasn’t that interested because he never responded. The second – a husband and wife team from the same company – penciled us in for the-week-after-the-week-after-next. Meanwhile a third realtor, from a rival company, came and gave us a low valuation. The husband and wife team eventually showed up and gave us an even lower valuation. They also told us our carpets would have to go, and provided an estimate to replace them, using their own spin off company. We cleaned the carpets instead and called Doug. He was knowledgeable about the market and enthusiastic about selling our house, and his valuation was significantly higher. His photographer took excellent pictures which brilliantly showcased the house and generated lots of viewings. When the first offer fell through he was quick to contact other interested viewers and obtained a higher offer – in cash – in under 24 hours. We closed on April 25th. Enough said.
Simply put, Doug is the best real estate agent in Cincinnati. I met Doug about 6 years ago when I was trying to sell my house in Hyde Park. It was during a down time in the market and I wasn’t having any luck with my agent at the time so after my listing expired I decided to look for another agent. I contacted Doug upon a friend’s recommendation. Doug was extremely professional from the minute I met him. He had a lot of great ideas, was always communicating with me and did everything he could to sell my house, which we did shortly after he listed it. I was so thrilled with Doug that he is the only agent I will work with and has subsequently helped me purchase a house and an investment property. There is no one more knowledgeable or hard working than Doug.
Doug and Becky did an excellent job of assisting us with every step of the process. They guided us through pricing our home, previewing it with professional photographs on Zillow to create interest and working through negotiations with the buyers. Doug provided us with resources to facilitate completion of the to do items on our inspection report. Doug and Becky were always quick to respond to any question or concern we had throughout the process.
Doug was a pleasure to work with. He understood and respected the process of home buying and was a constant professional during our entire working relationship. He was quick to respond to questions and offered valuable insight into the home buying experience. When things went a little south, Doug worked to make things right. Doug was clearly in our corner when it came time to negotiate pricing. I would recommend Doug to anyone looking for a skilled and qualified realtor.
I would like to do a shout out to Rebecca (Becky) and Doug at Coldwell Banker West Shell. They worked so so hard and succeeded in selling my first home. I am forever grateful for what they did. I knew it took extra steps since I live so far away! Words are not enough in tell you guys how appreciative my husband and I are to you both! If anyone has any realtor needs, please don’t hesitate in contacting Becky or Doug! They are truly fantastic people!
We first received a call from Doug Spitz explaining that he was a realtor and would like to help sale our house for us. Doug was always available to answer any question that we had. Returned phone calls & emails quickly. The communication with Doug was great. The pictures that were taken for the sale of the property were awesome! Our House sold very quickly. We had a great experience with Doug Spitz!
We had a wonderful experience selling our project property with Doug. Having been a resident of our neighborhood for years, he was very knowledgeable about local properties and prices. He had great advice on how to best prepare our building for listing, and I believe this definitely helped increase the final sale price. I would highly recommend his services.
My wife and I are young, first time buyers, who were fortunate enough to meet Doug early in our house hunting process. The most notable and valuable characteristic next to Doug’s experience, was his ability to listen to our requests and arrange suitable viewings in a timely manner. Doug was always very responsive (even when he was on vacation) and ultimately made us feel confident and secure through out the offering process. We could not recommend Doug more as a realtor and now also consider him to be a close friend.
Doug is an excellent agent to work with. He is prompt and pays attention to details. His construction background is extremely helpful when considering the purchase of an older home.
Doug and Becky were great to work with and very knowledgeable. We looked in many up and coming neighborhoods around Cincinnati. With some patience I was able to find a great house in a great neighborhood.
Being a first time homebuyer Doug was a perfect fit. He took the time and care to walk us through the proces, gave us some helpful tips and things to watch out for. He and his team were extremely responsive and overall the process went very smoothly. I would highly recommend Doug to anyone!
My wife and I worked with Doug over the past year in a tough market, and were finally able to find the house that was right for us. Doug and Becky were great throughout the entire process, despite us changing our ideal location. There were numerous times where I would call in the early afternoon and Doug was able to show me a house that same day. Doug was very knowledgeable about what to look for, and look out for when walking through the countless homes we have been through. As a first time home buyer, I would recommend Doug to anyone who wants a great home buying experience.
All thanks to Doug and his assistant, Becky, for all their resourcefulness and responsiveness in making this dream house our new home. On the way to the happy ending were some make-or-break moments requiring critical information, seller concessions, legal expertise and lickety-split contractor estimates. In every instance, Doug pulled out all the stops to make it happen and surmount the hurdles. He ferreted out elusive condo documents others said didn’t exist, tracked down the lawyer who drew them up, cajoled craftsmen to come out to the house on short notice to estimate repairs, even won seller permission for one to get inside, got a lawyer to help us through a stumbling block, and twice negotiated generous seller concessions. The resources of a larger broker also proved useful in what turned out to be a transaction with complications. Becky, Doug’s assistant, was always there to guide us, prompting us on the process and the next deadline, responding lightning-fast to our questions and knowing just where to go at city hall or wherever to get our questions answered. Always professional, knowledgeable, pleasant to deal with. Looking back, while we had looked at houses with other agents, I’m convinced that we made the right decision in buying this home through Doug. It was his sheer will, always-there responsiveness, and pushing through for us and getting what we needed in those deciding moments when the deal hung in the balance that made all the difference in the world. And the resources of Doug’s team made a complicated process go smoothly and worry-free.
We can’t speak highly enough of Doug and his assistant, Becky. We happened upon them through Zillow almost four years ago while looking for a property in Prospect Hill . . . and they’ve been with us for all that time as we searched for just the right place. Doug knows everything and everyone in Cincinnati and is always able to provide helpful advice. He never delivered a hard sell and always made us feel like our concerns were his. During our long house search we had the opportunity to meet a lot of real estate agents. None of them even began to compare to Doug.
Doug was more helpful than I could have imagined. There’s no better realtor for a first-time homebuyer in Cincinnati. The entire process was smooth and easy.
Doug and Becky were awesome for my wife and I. We sold and bought within 45 days of talking with them. Doug’s background as a home builder is extremely helpful when walking through potential homes to buy. Would highly recommend this team for selling or buying!
My girlfriend and I just purchased a condo in the Walnut Hills neighborhood of Cincinnati with the help of Doug and his team. We mainly worked with his buyer’s agent, Perry. Perry, Doug, and Becky were a tremendous help at every step of the way! Doug even worked late on a Friday evening (I believe we were on the phone as late as 11pm) to get our purchasing contract together and an offer in on our new home. As this was our first home buying experience, we were confused, stressed, and unclear on many aspects of the process. Knowing that Perry was just a quick text / call away – and that he would answer (or find an answer for me!) any possible question I threw at him – took so much worry and stress out of the equation. Perry also referred us to our eventual lender, had referrals ready for inspectors, insurance brokers… every step of the buying process, he was right there to offer suggestions, explanations, and help. I couldn’t recommend them enough, and will certainly be reaching out again on our next real estate purchase.
Over promise/under deliver – call Spitz if you like that kind of service. Run, run, run! You actually will be selling your own home if you list with him. I asked him to provide me comps and he would only verbally go through them with me and would only provide them from the listing date only. Missed deadlines to respond to offers. I would email him language for the counteroffer; never gave me advise. Do you homework before listing with an agent. You will be glad you did!
Tried multiple times to get Doug to show me one of his listings. The last I heard from him was when he answered the phone and said; “Hey, I am getting ready to meet with someone, can I call you back in a little bit.” It has been weeks since I have heard from him and that is even after I sent him a follow-up text. Also, heard similar feedback about Doug from other agents in his office.
