Doug started in the sales industry at 19 years of age and then, in 1996, made the life altering decision to enter the real estate world and found an industry that truly motivates and excites him. He has specialized in new construction sales for the majority of his career but has also been successful at resale, relocation services and office management, gaining his Managing Broker license in 2001. He joined the Matrix team in 2011 as a Community Sales Manager: working with prospective buyers and their agents, negotiating offers, writing purchase & sales agreements, managing sales through to closing and working with the construction team to meet closing deadlines. The active pace and constant challenges of the real estate market keeps Doug energized and helping folks buy new homes has always made him feel truly satisfied.
In 2020, Doug was promoted to the Director of Sales and Builder Relations with Matrix Real Estate. This new role is a natural evolution of his nearly 25 years in the real estate industry. Working directly with the builder he advises on land acquisition, model selection, pricing and marketing. Doug also manages the team of Community Sales Managers to achieve the highest level of customer service. He is excited to have the opportunity to expand his role and bring the best value and highest quality homes to the Puget Sound market.
Doug has lived in the Puget Sound region since 1976 when his family moved from the San Francisco Bay area and settled in Bellevue. He graduated from the University of Washington and raised three great kids. He married his wife Tatyana in 2016 and added three step-kids, who are mostly grown and have started their own careers. Hobbies include travelling, hiking, reading, gardening and enjoying time with family and friends.
