"My confidence in Doug Zeller is so high that I let him bid on my purchase before I looked at the house. My best purchasing experience, ever. I've bought several homes in the past and Doug Zeller is by far the most customer oriented. I never felt rushed or like I was wasting his time. I made multiple changes to my home purchase interests and criteria but Doug always made adjustments. He is patient, listens, and understands what drives a personal decision to purchase. When it came time for the purchasing contract, he talked to me about all the little details that I never thought about. If you're going to buy a house talk to Doug! Doug Zeller is in real estate because he cares about the people he is helping.” Major John Shiffer, US Army


"There’s no other Real Estate Agent I’d use than Doug Zeller! He’s very thorough and keeps you informed of all the steps in the home buying process. I highly recommend him for all of tour Real Estate needs.” Shelli King

Honestly I have always grouped realtors with lawyers used car salesmen and catfish, bottom dwelling scum suckers. Doug has changed that, absolutely and without question. Doug was upfront, honest and more helpful than I every expected a realtor to be. He always returned calls, very proactive in his quest to sell my home of 20 plus years, on point in every aspect, specially with honest upfront communication. Doug and his team hit the door running and never stopped, through the power shutdowns, rain, my traveling for work, it just never stopped. His knowledge of the market, surrounding areas, his skill in what, when and how to prep my home showed in everything he did. I could not picked a worse time to sell my home, yet due to personal reasons it was a must. Doug and his team made it happen. Doug made me feel like I actually mattered, not just another sell or dollar sign, It really did matter to him, and it showed. I highly recommend Doug and his team if you are looking to buy your new dream, or looking to change and start a new one, Doug can help. If he worked out of state, I would have him help me buy my new home. It’s a shame really, as now I have to go back and sort through the catfish. LOL. Greg Williams

Selling one’s home is challenging with so many different stressors. We found our realtor to be educated, with common sense know-how, that helped us navigate this event with minimal disruption to our lives. We were fortunate in having lovely buyers purchase our home. But, I am confident that no matter what difficulty we encountered, Doug would have been up to the challenge to keep the process going to reach a successful sale of our home. It really is true, finding the right price is just the beginning. The hard work comes through the process & especially at the conclusion to get everyone to sign the papers! It’s not over until funding! We give 5***** to Doug & Nicole! We were in great hands from start to finish.

Doug and Nicole are a true power couple in teaming up to successfully market and sell our home. Not only the technical expertise in providing quality 3 D photo tours and drone shots, but the understanding they have of the needs and requirements of both the seller and the buyer proved invaluable. The process was as seamless as I could have hoped for and they were right there providing the pertinent care and coaching the process required. They have our highest recommendation.

Doug listened to my needs and did a great job fulfilling them. I needed the sale to go through in a short period of time. I had offers in 3 days after listing my home with Doug’s experience in real estate. I truly recommend Doug for your future home sale or purchase needs.

We can not recommend Doug and Nicole enough. Very professorial class act. Right from the get go they were on top of what need to be done to get our home on the market and sold. Doug was always keeping in touch with us communicating and keeping us in the loop, as well as helping us get through all of our inspections. Any time we had a question or concern he was always right there. Never more than a phone call or text away. Doug and Nicole really made the home selling process fun!!


Aaron and Emily Dinsdale ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I can't express enough how AWESOME our experience was with having Doug as our realtor. If you want someone that has the experience, knows the area, has the contacts, and really wants you to have a great experience, give Doug a call. He truly goes out of his way to make a deal for you!!!

Doug Zeller was a guiding angel in the selling of my house and the purchase of my new house. I had never bought or sold a house before and was ill informed regarding almost every aspect. I will use him again and recommend him to my friends. Thank you, Doug


Bob & Dori Norris Home Owners ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Doug did a great job selling our house. After working with him for a short time to sell our house we felt like we were working with a good friend instead of just a real estate agent. If something needed to be fixed that we didn't feel like doing ourselves Doug always found us a good experienced person to do the job at a reasonable price. When our house was selling all the inspections had been completed and everything that needed to be fixed had already been fixed. This allowed the sale to go through in a short period of time. Doug also did a great job of advertising our house to a large selection of buyers. This helped our house to sell during a market slump and during the winter. We highly recommend Doug and would use him again for any future real estate needs.

Doug did a great job working with me to get the house I had to have and wouldn’t settle for other properties. I was impressed with his ability to complete sale with all contingencies met. I look forward to working with him again and would recommend using him as a realtor to my friends. Feb 8, 2019 Published Teri Cladianos Seller/Buyer Doug was #1. We were so lucky to find him to help us sell our old property and match it to a wonderful buyer. I was expecting it to possibly take many months to sell, but he found us a buyer within weeks. He went out of his way to help us out and avail himself with his very admirable years of knowledge, experience, and personal and professional contacts; and not only with selling our old place and finding and purchasing our new home, but finding us options we wouldn’t have been able to find ourselves for moving and storage. He’s got 5 stars from us!

Doug was a pleasure to do business with. He met with us on short notice and showed us a piece of property that checked all of our boxes. He helped us construct an offer, counteroffer and close the sale over a long weekend. Doug kept us informed during the escrow process. He answered all of our questions and did considerable research to get us the best information available. He continues to stay in touch and help us with questions about the area post-sale. Published Donna Ellis Client Doug is a very straight forward person who will help you in every way possible and what he doesn't know he will find out for you. He is very knowledgeable and goes beyond to find what you need from beginning to end. I wouldn't trust anybody but Doug with my realty needs. My husband and I have had the privilege to have Doug Zeller as our realtor on two different occasions. We first met Doug as first time home buyers nearly 20 years ago. Doug was very knowledgeable and supportive as we navigated through that process. When we decided to sell our home 12 years later, we didn't think twice about asking Doug to list our home. Even though the housing market was declining at that time, Doug had our house sold in two weeks for close to the listing price. Mr. Zeller went above and beyond as we searched for our current home. We appreciated his patience as we toured dozens of houses all over the county. When we finally found our "dream home" his expertise in our negotiations resulted in us saving a lot of money. Our family is thankful for all his hard work on our behalf and we credit Doug for making this house our home. Source: realtor.com
