"I met Douglas during an open house on a rental property and liked him so much I kept his card. When it came time to sell my home, I reached out to him. Warm, friendly, competent and smart, Douglas helped me navigate the real estate space like no other. He was a partner, a teacher, an advocate, and a friend. The perfect balance of real estate savvy and moral support. Douglas' goal was to understand me as a person first before tackling my checklists so that he could take a holistic and collaborative approach to best represent me in the market. I always felt that Douglas knew what I wanted and always had my back. A great communicator, I always knew where I stood and had a good sense of what was coming down the pike. After selling my home for a significant profit, I worked w Douglas to buy my current home and know that I would never think of real estate without him by my side. His "no pressure" attitude coupled w his mastery of the market won me over. He had me at hello. And it will never be goodbye. I consider Douglas a cherished friend."
"We started our home search in LA nearly one year before we knew we would move. We gave Douglas a rather big challenge, not knowing where we wanted to live in the LA area and whether we should build or renovate. We started out in Malibu looking at land and went as far east at Silver Lake looking at homes. Of course we thought we wanted something modern and glass but ended up with a bungalow .
Douglas was the most patient and understanding broker we could have wanted and more. He gave us tons of input on locations which was most important. He never tired of our endless questions and inquiries and never tried to influence us or push us to buy and very importantly always responded to our calls quickly which is crucial in real estate .Buying real estate in LA is very challenging even for an experienced NYC couple. With every disappointment Douglas kept encouraging us that the right house was out there. After bidding wars and unacceptable inspections we finally found our CA residence in a beautiful historic neighborhood. Not only have we found a great real estate professional we have a new friend. Thank you Douglas for assisting us in our pursuit of a lifestyle change from the right coast to the left coast."

"Douglas Stockley is the consummate real estate agent. Conscientious, full attention to detail, knowledgeable about the marketplace, and a terrific negotiator who makes deals happen. I've worked with many agents in all aspects of the market - single-family homes, residential income, leasing, and commercial property - and I believe Douglas is the best I've known in all fields. On the buying end, he is perceptive and intelligent - and seems to find the perfect property each time.
When I've used him on the selling end, he represents my interests with dedication and grace. And, I can rely on him to follow through. He goes way beyond what is required by providing referrals to contractors, painters, and other professionals that are indispensable to making the deal work. I cannot recommend him highly enough."
