Here's what some of Doug Ledeboer's clients say...
"As buyers coming to the US from overseas Doug worked proactively and tirelessly, through a very difficult process, to assist us in completing on our home purchase. His professionalism was outstanding and genuineness reassuring. His comprehensive knowledge of the real estate market enabled us to make well informed decisions about our home choice. We cannot recommend Doug highly enough. In the 18 property transactions we have completed, in four countries, Doug sets himself apart by his professionalism, knowledge and personality. We will certainly be using Doug's expertise in all of our future property transactions."
~ Michael and Linda Jeffs
"We are very appreciative of Doug Ledeboer's efforts on our behalf as a Buyer's agent in the purchase of our new home in San Ramon. He is a consummate real estate professional who looked after our interests and with his gracious, personable style, he made the purchase process enjoyable. Some recollections: *After meeting Doug by chance at an Open House, he invited us to see other homes that better fit our needs. A couple of days later, we toured 4 or 5 houses and he gave us a color presentation binder with details and pictures of those properties. *When we made an offer on a house, he guided our negotiations of a large price concession and in obtaining favorable Buyer terms. *He efficiently chose and scheduled a property inspector, roof inspector, and pest control company and made sure we got their reports on a timely basis *He stayed on top of the escrow process and took care of contract Addendums so that our interests were always protected. *Doug provided contractor referrals, including painters and for a mover. *After the purchase was complete, Doug checked back with us to see if everything was fine with our new home and in our renovation and move-in preparations. We highly recommend Doug as an agent for the purchase or sale of real estate and we would gladly use him again."

"Doug Ledeboer was very professional and excellent in every way! When we were looking for a home he quickly picked up on our desires and needs. He went way above and beyond what was expected to see that we were very satisfied. He answered every call in a timely fashion. He was proactive in noticing safety issues and pursuing their correction. He worked efficiently with the escrow company and and provided an excellent interface with them and the seller's agent. We really appreciated getting a CD from Doug with all of our documents relating to the purchase of our new home. He is a very thoughtful person. We can't imagine a better realtor!"
~ Garl and Carol, Pleasanton
"Doug is a very personable guy and always went the extra mile to simplify the tedious process of marketing and selling our house. He was very adept at satisfying our requirements when it came to showing our house against the short notice demands of some of the prospective buyers and their agents. His temperament far exceeded my patience in getting the house sold. I would definitely have Doug handle our next purchase or sale."
~ Keith, Danville
"From the moment we met Doug Ledeboer, my wife and I felt as though we not only met our future real estate expert, but we also made a very good friend along the way. Doug helped us buy and sell a home during a challenging time in the marketplace. During both transactions, he remained in close contact with us through the entire sales process. He was always available, from early in the morning until late at night, whether by phone, text or email. Doug was very thorough in his follow through with us, the bank, inspectors, repairmen, escrow companies, and other realtors involved in the buying and selling processes.
A few qualities we really respect about Doug is his tireless work ethic and his passion for helping others. Before we met Doug, we were driving around a few open houses, and noticed that the selling agents were not even present -- other folks in their office (and sometimes a competitor's office) were holding the homes open. Doug, on the other hand, was there for every open house, making sure our home was always presentable. He marketed the property very well in newspapers and online, and he held the house open consistently by himself (not another agent) every week until we obtained a buyer. Wouldn't you want someone like Doug working for you to sell your home?
On the buying side, Doug was very open to our needs, and took the time to explain advantages + disadvantages between homes/areas. Doug knows the entire East Bay in and out, and did not steer us wrong -- he listened to our needs and helped us make the best decision with our needs in mind, not his. Additionally, Doug is very well-connected with many folks, such as inspectors, repairmen, contractors, loan brokers, etc...you name it, Doug most likely knows one! He always provided us with an exceptional amount of information that made it easy for us to decide what was best for the future of our family.
It goes without saying that Doug Ledeboer is passionate about real estate, extremely organized and professional, and that he really cares about his clients. We would HIGHLY recommend Doug to anyone looking for a solid real estate professional."
~ Matt and Stacy, Walnut Creek
“From the first moment we met Doug Ledeboer until the very end of the complex process of selling our home of 45 years, we felt the special security of being in the hands not only of an expert, but also a man who could be reassuring with his knowledge and his command of the process. He was available by phone and in person whenever we needed his knowledge or encouragement, and he showed a special sensibility to our emotions over leaving our home and all that meant. He helped us immensely to comprehend what we were signing, and guided us over rough spots with his special gentleness and good humor. I would say he lent a special dignity to a process that can be brutal at times. I recommend Doug without any reservations at all."
~ Katherine, Walnut Creek
“The short-sale process can be complicated and emotional. Doug’s the consummate professional, he helped ease our stress, kept us informed and on task the entire time. It was unbelievable what he was able to do for us.”
