testimonial quote

Doug was phenomenal with the purchasing process. He knew comparable houses in the area, what they were selling for and suggested a price we go in at and we got our house for 5% less than asking price. Doug's communication and insight were deeply appreciated during this process. If we ever had any questions, Doug was always a quick text/phone call away. Doug has been such a pleasure to work with. This is the second time we've worked with him and couldn't imagine using another realtor. When we decided to move back into the area, there was no doubt who we would want to work with again. Doug's knowledge and experience of both building and buying houses is invaluable. He has such a great and personable demeanor and really makes you feel like he has your best interest in mind. I would recommend Doug to anyone looking to buy a home and truly do appreciate his guidance during this process.

We are so glad that Doug Birkey was recommended to us! He was so helpful with both buying and selling our property. Doug was reliable, friendly, supportive, and very kind the entire time we worked with him. His knowledge was a great help to us as we navigated a crazy mortgage market over a 6 month period of time while buying and then selling our home. I would definitely recommend Doug to anyone who may need realtor services. Thank you Doug!

Had a great previous experience working with Doug purchasing our first house. We did not hesitate to have the opportunity to work with him once again! The process for purchasing our second home was another pleasant experience with Doug. Every question we had was dealt with very promptly. He always had a great attitude, was very knowledgeable, and made sure we were always on the same page whenever an issue arose. I would highly recommend Doug to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!

Doug Birkey went above and beyond with the purchase of our new home and we can’t wait to work with him on the selling of our current home. He made time available when we were looking, even in the evenings or weekends. We had a little set back on the purchase of our new home with the install of a new furnace, no fault of his and he was right there to make it right. I have a huge amount of respect for him and would highly recommend him to anyone.

We have worked with Doug previously and his experience in home building and the area were so beneficial for my wife and I. It went so fast, listed one day, sold the next! Doug was so quick to get back to any of our questions. Really put us at ease that he was so readily available.

Austin Pletcher | Home Seller
testimonial quote

We were so fortunate Doug was the agent available to take our referral. He was the perfect fit for us with his new construction knowledge. We were new to the area and his ability to connect us with a lender was much appreciated. The seller was a bit challenging, but Doug remained professional, did very thorough follow-ups with all parties, and kept us well-informed of progress and delays. I felt very confident knowing that Doug was our advocate and had the right experience and personality to guide us through the process. We have recommended Doug to many.

Doug is great! He responds quickly and explains everything so we understand how different aspects of the buying and selling process will work. Thanks Doug!!

Walker, South Bend | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Doug was able to sell my condo in record time despite the fact that I and my son live way out of town (actually in opposite sides of the country, with South Bend being in the middle!) He made the process of completing paperwork easy and thorough. I am very pleased with the outcome. Thankyou, Doug, for relieving me of a big worry! Relieved and happy with the process and outcome. He made this long distance effort easy. I was out of town during the entire sale process so I cannot answer all the items. However, I spoke with Doig several times on the phone when there were questions. He made the whole proccess easy and worry free for me, which was very helpful since I had recently lost my husband. I was very pleased with the result and speed of the entire process. very pleased

We knew Doug from building and selling previous homes. He is very knowledgeable and keeps you in the loop. If he doesn’t know the answer, he finds out. He is wonderful and a true professional.

We could not have asked for a better broker! Especially since our home sold in less than 24 hours from the minute the home was officially listed “For Sale”!

Elizabeth McKinley | Home Seller
testimonial quote

I picked Doug Birkey for selling this property because I remembered him as a polite, nice guy when we went to high school together 40 years ago. At that point, even as a high school young man, he exuded a sense that things would be better with him entering the room. He was earnest and sincere. I'm pleased to let anyone know that my experience of him these many years later show that these traits are still with him. Of particular value to me was that Doug hit the right mark with communication. He kept me in the loop without overwhelming me with any extra messages. I felt that he was respectful of my time, and was generous with his own. I appreciate Doug's work throughout the sales process. I felt supported and guided with best decisions for my family. He understood my goals and needs and met them. It is hard to imagine improving anything about his work with me. Due to happenstance, I have been involved in six real estate sales in three years. This was my best experience of all of them. It was wonderful working with him! I was satisfied with every aspect of the sale. When multiple interested parties came forward immediately, Doug was helpful to think through how to proceed. While this is a nice problem, I found it stressful to consider how to go forward with an eye on acting respectfully toward everyone involved. It was clear that Doug was experienced with these matters, and nicely balanced his role as advisor with helping me feel in charge of final decisions.

Doug is the best. My Father, who's house we sold, was in Real Estate all his life and Doug is a real professional.

Ron Barger, Niles MI | Home Seller
testimonial quote

My parents are familiar with Doug and recommended him to me when we decided to look at a house last minute. This is our third home purchase and there were aspects of each previous home purchase that I wasn't pleased with so I thought I could find a realtor that was a better fit. Doug is that fit!! Doug is the best realtor we have used to purchase a home and we had a GREAT home buying experience. I am so incredibly impressed by his attention to detail, friendliness, patience, honesty, and ability to be tactful and act in our best interest. Doug has been extremely helpful in our home purchase and gave us his insight and advice, but was not pushy at all and we truly felt that he wanted the best for us. I also am pleased so far with the information he gave us as we look to sell our previous home, we have never had much guidance with pricing and he has been so helpful and professional in that regard. I look forward to continuing to work with him!

I knew Mr. Birkey years ago as his children attended the same school as mine. Also, his daughter married the son of a very close friend of mine, they also highly recommended him. He was always available to answer my questions or concerns via email, phone or texting. Mr. Birkey is very professional and takes the time to explain all the steps of the listing, preparing your home for listing, showings, inspections, and gives a detailed breakdown of expenses for closing. Mr. Birkey is very professional and has a great understanding of your home and how it will do in today's market.

Doug was great to work with, he took the time needed to make sure everything worked out right and went above and beyond in my opinion. He explained the process in detail and our house sold in just a few days. I felt I could reach out to him if I had any questions with the process and he was always willing to help. He was great to work with, I would not hesitate to contact him again if we were buying/selling in the future. I highly recommend him.

Ben Mikel, formerly Elkhart | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Doug Birkey was very professional and helpful. He was amenable to the price we wanted to start out with and he managed to get the showings as close together as he could, since we have dogs and we don’t have any place to take them. He did a great job with the negotiations and he managed to work out the details with the buyers so that we were able to reach compromises that suited us all.

Phyllis Scantland, South Bend, IN | Home Seller
testimonial quote

We knew Doug was the right broker for us because he has a wealth of knowledge and experience. Knowing that Doug has many years of experience in construction put him at the top of our list in our search for a broker. We felt secure trusting him with our home search. After we started working with Doug in earnest, it became clear that his attention to detail and ability to clearly communicate answers to complicated questions were some of his best qualities. Doug was always professional, always accessible, and always enthusiastic about getting us into our home. We heartily recommend Doug Birkey to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Doug was recommended to me by a friend. Doug was very professional and walked me through the process at every turn. He explained things to me in a consistent way so there were few surprises during this journey. I never felt pressured or rushed to make decisions, and his patience was appreciated. I would definitely recommend Doug to family and friends. Doug seemed to really care about finding me a home that I would find comfortable, and I feel as if I made a friend throughout this process. He put me at ease, listened to my concerns, and genuinely seemed satisfied when the decision was made to purchase a new home. It appears to me that he enjoys his profession, and it is easy to work with someone who likes what they do. I am grateful to him for his guidance during this somewhat stressful decision to leave a home that I loved.

I was concerned about buying a home that might need too many major repairs and Doug was highly recommended. He has experience, and has been in the building industry. Doug knows everything about the homes listed and points out pros and cons that I am not sure anyone else would even notice. Truthfully, I chose Cressy and Everett because of Doug.

I was very pleased and cannot thank him enough for what he did for us. We really appreciate it!!
