    Cathy gave Doug 5 stars out of 5
    When my brothers and I decided to sell my deceased parent's home that I had been living in for a year, I immediately suggested Doug Sawyer. My brother as the executor wanted to choose the realtor and I pleaded that he first talk to Doug. Doug is a fellow high school classmate, grew up in my neighborhood and is active and well respected in our community. My brother was impressed from start to finish. I explained that I had health issues and was concerned about getting the house ready to show. Doug took care of the details by hiring discount carpet cleaners and house cleaners. The whole process was seamless on my end. The house went on the market on Oct. 16 and we accepted an offer on Oct. 20; the sale price was significantly higher than the estimate to our delight. Doug kept us informed throughout the entire process. If I had a question, he responded immediately and always gave good advice. Doug exceeded our expectations. He has a kind demeanor, is extremely knowledgeable, has an abundance of patience, is dedicated and is just a great human being. I would recommend Doug to everyone for their real estate needs. We put our trust in Doug and it paid off. He is a true professional and trustworthy agent, as well as a friend. He will go above and beyond for you, is someone who truly knows what they are doing, and someone who truly cares about you as individuals. We were appreciative and impressed.

    Doug Sawyer Deserves 10 Stars Doug was professional, courteous, extremely responsive and a great negotiator in getting the best results possible in selling our home. Doug took the time to make sure all of my questions were answered and kept me informed of all updates during the entire selling process. His calming manner was invaluable in making what could have been a stressful and difficult process as seamless as could be. Do Nor hesitate to choose Doug for any real estate needs you have. Title and Escrow companies were also extremely helpful in getting the transaction to close. Thank you all so much for the effort.

    Going in as a first time home buyer can be very stressful and at times makes you want to pull your hair out. Thankfully having Doug as an agent alleviated all the stress and worries that come with looking for a home. If I needed help or needed questions answered he was available through phone call and or text. Always had helpful answers and was very prompt in replying when I did text. The best thing about Doug is he looks out for you and has your best interest at heart. That's what makes him a great agent for anyone, not just a first time home buyer like myself. Can't ask for anything better.

    Doug was a joy to work with. He was recommended to me by a neighbor. His knowledge and professionalism were outstanding and he kept a calm, cool demeanor when there were disagreements on issues and helped us navigate our way through the sale of the house. The services he offered helped to sell our house within three days after it was listed. I would highly recommend Doug Sawyer to anyone wishing to place their house on the market in the Las Vegas area.

    CJ gave Doug 5 stars out of 5
    Doug was amazing! He really knows his stuff. He helped both the seller and buyer to make the transaction as seemless as possible. Although he was technically representing the seller not us, he went out of his way to help us as well. Our mortgage company was giving us the run around and Doug stepped in and completely took care of business! If I am to purchase another property, I would absotely call Doug! We were so grateful he was involved!

    Being a first time buyer, I had no idea where to start until I reached out to Doug. He made this entire process easy to understand, and kept me up to date with any new information that came his way. He was always very accessible as well. Doug offered referrals, projections, and several options that fit our needs. We could not be happier with the price we got our home for, especially in this market. We will definitely be recommending Doug to friends and family, and will also be contacting him in the future for our real estate needs.

    My wife and I recently bought a home with Doug's help. He was able to get us a home when no one else was. He is easy to work with and went out of his way to make each step as simple as possible, and he negotiated heavily on our behalf. He is quick to respond to questions, and available to able to explain all the details. With us being first time buyers, Doug made the entire process pretty much stress free. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home.

    Doug is very professionally & knows the real estate market very well. His experience & ability to help the seller through all the ins & outs is a great benefit. You could not find anyone better to represent you. Doug is very patient & can explain all offers or anything that you have a question on.

    Bryan gave Doug 5 stars out of 5
    I have interviewed literally dozens of agents and haven't come across anyone who can beat the professionalism and knowledge of my agent, Mr. Doug Sawyer. I had an extremely difficult transaction and wholeheartedly believe that if it wasn't for Mr. Sawyer's knowledge and personal experience with my kind of property, it would still be listed on the market. He is consistent with follow through criteria and is detail orientated for a as flawless transaction as possible. I highly recommend Mr. Sawyer for all of your real estate needs.

    Jim gave Doug 5 stars out of 5
    I highly recommend Doug Sawyer for anyone with residential needs in the Las Vegas area! I was an absentee owner of a condo I wanted to sell (I live in the Pacific Northwest) and I needed someone who I could trust to keep an eye on the condo, and to be an articulate communicator between potential buyers and myself. Doug excelled at those things and many others. The process of closing my condo sale was a nightmare at times and hit multiple snags (due to a very messed up HOA--imagine that!) and Doug was always one-step ahead, always anticipating potential trouble spots and having solution ideas ahead of time. No matter what happened, he was unflappable--nothing caught him off guard. His negotiation skills were also top notch. I had done extensive research on what I thought my condo would sell for, and Doug ended up listing it at a price several thousand dollars higher...And he got me several thousand dollars more than I thought I'd get in proceeds from the sale, due to his extensive marketing and constant work. If you are thinking about selling (or buying), do yourself a favor and make Doug Sawyer your real estate professional of choice!

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Doug Sawyer! My husband and I bought our 1st off grid (solar powered) home, thankfully Doug has extensive knowledge on solar power systems, septic systems and living off grid. I felt comfortable calling or texting Doug at any time with any questions or concerns we had. I would not hesitate to refer Doug to my family and friends.

    Bobby gave Doug 5 stars out of 5
    Doug was referred to me by a fellow employee. After an initial phone conversation to establish a few likes and some examples of properties I found on Zillow I forwarded to him, he was able to set time aside to show properties all over town! I only had 2 days to look and he cleared his schedule to make it happen on those days and he found the one!! After a few phone calls to the listing agent, Doug recommended an offer that was made and acceptance! Doug always responded to all my calls and texts promptly. He never tried to up sale or down sale. It was purely based on my likes and dislikes. He also had a very keen eye for problems as well as good aspects in the homes we viewed. He is very knowledgeable on every aspect of association dues, city and county issues, home appliances, swimming pools, irrigation systems and so on....... I recommend Doug without reservation! A wonderful home buying experience!

    We felt very fortunate to have Doug as our realtor. We were just in town for a week to get our house on the market and he was able to guide us through what we needed to do to make that happen. He priced it right and we were happy to get 5 offers the first day. We had to leave town the day before it went on the market and he was on top of every step to get us through to closing. He always would answer phone calls and texts and made great suggestions. We would highly recommend him.

    Doug is the consummate professional in every regard. Doug worked with us from the beginning to establish the listing, then kept us informed every step of the way. I was nervous throughout, asking a million questions, and Doug addresses the all in a very professional manner. I had a specific timeline I was shooting for due to retirement and we closed the day before I retired. Could not have done this without Doug! Another plus was that virtually all of the paperwork was done electronically, saving tons of time and hassle. Best way to go.

    Buying a home can be very stressful especially when we were competing with cash buyers. Working with Doug Sawyer made all the difference, he worked tirelessly to make sure we put in our bids in a timely manner, and his knowledge of the market helped us compete with other bids. His attentiveness and humor made buying our home a great experience. I would HIGHLY recommend him.

He made all thing of concern well know and was on top of everything that need to be done. Also made several weekend appointments to show houses for my family. Very satisfied by him and his professionalism, and is highly recommended by me. Thanks for all you help Doug!

    Terry and Roy gave Doug 5 stars out of 5
    Over the years Doug has sold three single family homes and a condo for my wife and I. First and foremost is his trust factor. He is a true professional in every aspect of the word and his word is gospel when it comes to the real estate business. Our first home he sold in a week and our third was sold for thousands more than we were asking because of his expertise and that was during the real estate bust period. Doug works with you as if you were his only client and is one of the most honest and helpful individuals, let alone a salesman, I have known. He also has people he can call to make any repairs your home needs to sell, and trust is really needed here, for low cost and workmanship. Doug does not only meet or exceed every qualification that you would want out of an agent but he is also one of the nicest person you will meet. Over the years I have come to trust and cherish Doug for all the qualities one would want out of both a real estate agent and a friend. Roy Freberg

    My husband and I were first time home buyers with plenty of anxieties. We are so thankful for Doug's experience and professionalism throughout the entire experience. I reflect back on that time and have such great memories. I have referred Doug to many of my close family and friends and will continue to do so.

    My real estate experience in buying a home using Doug's knowledge and help was second to none. He was very courteous, punctual, knowledgeable and easy to work with. He arranged showings in such as way that our time was very well spent and made sure that all my criteria were met in all the listing service we saw. He was also exceptionally helpful after the purchase had been completed and helped me (and continues to help me 6 months later) on several house related issues both large and small. I can't recommend enough - he is a great agent and even a better person.

    My Experience

    • Doug Sawyer was actually referred to us by some friends. They spoke very highly of him and with good reason. It had been a long time since we had sold a home and he was very helpful and patient with us throughout the entire process. Even after the sale was finalized he helped try and resolve some additional issues that came up. He was always available by telephone and responded to all our needs quickly and efficiently. Our house sold during the Christmas Holiday Season in just one week. In addition he gave us advice and help buying our new home, which he received nothing for. I would recommend him to anyone. - Rob and Kelly Wilson
    • Doug was the utmost professional throughout the entire time my house was on the market until it was sold. He went above and beyond what was necessary. I would recommend him highly to anyone who needs a real estate agent. - Larry McKay
    • Mr. Doug is a very professional, patient, excellent, and most experienced real state agent who I have had never meet.If you want to find a honest and good agent to sell or buy please don't forget to looking for him.Thank you Doug. - Li TIng
    • Doug has helped me buy 2 homes and sell 1 home within the past 7 years. He is highly knowledgeable about the Las Vegas market, and with his extensive experience in real estate, he is a fantastic agent for representing your interests. Doug is honest, a great negotiator and highly responsive. You cannot go wrong having Doug as your Realtor! - Kimberly Johnston
    • Doug was really the best of the best as our short sale process took a whole year to complete. We were in a chapter 13 and Doug had to work with the lawyer to get the approval of the bankruptcy judge to clear the house for sale. Then we were getting stone walled on the selling price as Chase was being idiots thru the process. At one time Doug had to contact our congressman for help. Thru the whole process we lost 2-3 buyers and finally got a buyer who was willing to wait. Doug was very patient thru the whole process and it was great working with him. He made sure everything was completed properly. - Fred and Irene Kydd
    • Doug had to deal with many personalities in the sale of my home. He was professional, persistent, and courteous with all involved. He, consistently, went "the extra mile". He came highly recommended (via a retired realtor friend) and we were not disappointed. - Pam Gaston
    • My husband and I chose Doug to help us buy our first home in 2011. He was so easy to work with that we knew, without a doubt, we would go to him again for selling the same house. Our home sold within 45 days and although we bought, and then sold, at a good (profitable) time, we have Doug to thank for listing our home at the right price and keeping our expectations realistic. Much like buying our first home, he led us through the process of selling our first home, in a very professional and kind manner. He is an honest, trustworthy guy and we wouldn't just consider him our realtor, but also our friend. - Kaylee
    • Doug Sawyer helped us buy two homes and just recently sell one of them. He does a excellent job in a professional manner. He always goes that extra mile. - Joe Lillard
    • Doug Sawyer has sold three homes for me over the past sixteen years. He is so knowledgeable and thorough in his work. Trustworthy is the word that comes to mind in speaking about Doug. He is committed to excellence in his work, and provided A-1 customer service for both the seller and buyer. - Tom
    • Doug Sawyer is one of the most professional realtors I have ever worked with. This includes my time in the real estate industry. He returns calls or e-mails, shows up on time and does what he says he'll do. Easy to work with. - John D Edwards
    • I have known Doug for over 15 years, he has handled the sale of two homes for me during this time. I would rate his service, and knowledge as excellent in all matters dealing with real estate transactions. You won't find any better. - Gary
