Doug Gernert - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Doug is absolutely the best realtor we have ever known.

He was a tremendous help in finding us a "hard to find" house. Very thorough and informative through the whole process. And then he helped us price and sell it in less than 3 days and carried us through that process. When we are ready to buy or sell again, Doug is our guy. He will always be the one to handle our real estate needs.

Jim Carman

Doug was great to work with.

Since we were out of town for most of the process, he scheduled all inspections and contractors necessary to get the house sold.

Marie A. Weeks

I highly recommend Doug.

He was responsive, timely and friendly. He provided us with upfront information, organized are viewing of properties and was very helpful in the contract phase as well as all thru the closing process and follow up after closing. If you choose Doug as your agent, you will not be disappointed.

We were highly impressed and pleased with Doug’s level of service as our agent. He was extremely prompt, reliable, and efficient! He had our home listed and under contract within a matter of days. Doug was very knowledgeable about the housing market as well as the buying and selling process. He provided expert guidance and valuable suggestions. He was always available for questions and concerns. We will definitely use Doug for our future real estate needs and highly recommend him to anyone in need of an experienced agent!

Tracey Mitchell

Our long, tedious search for the right house was made much less stressful because of working with Doug.

His knowledge of things to look for or steer from made us more confident in each decision to keep a house on the short list or not. He never seems to miss any potential concerns or things that required more investigating into. He was fun to work with, as he has a great sense of humor and just a great all around guy with a lot of local experience. I will call Doug with any buying or selling opportunities, as well as recommend him to friends and family in that situation.

We had a limited time in Florida to look at homes, and Doug went right to work for us.

He was friendly, professional, efficient and patient. We brought a list of homes we wanted to see, and Doug showed us all of those, plus added more homes so that we could see every option we had. He was also a great representative for us throughout negotiations. We highly recommend Doug!

As a Loan Officer, I know how important is to work as a team and Doug fulfilled his role perfectly. Thank You Doug for helping make everything run smoothly for all parties involved in the transaction. Looking forward to working again in the future!

After having worked with many different realtors in multiple states and cities, I can say without a doubt that Doug Gernert is the best realtor that my husband and I have ever had.

Whereas there have been times that we questioned whether a realtor truly had our best interest in mind, there was never a question that Doug was looking out for us. He approached each home with such a watchful eye that you would think he was buying the property for himself. Upon entering a property, he would examine it from the perspective of what could potentially be an issue if we were to buy the property, but also let us know the positive aspects of the home. It was such a relief to know that Doug had our back, even when we first looked at a property. Doug's knowledge of the area was also a big plus. He was able to come to each showing not only having knowledge about the home's current condition, but also with a perspective about the home's and immediate area's historical context. Doug also never gave any indication that he was too busy for us. He never tired of showing us homes, or acted put out. In fact, he often stated that he wanted us to make sure that we were getting the best house, since we would have to live there! If we ever had a question, Doug always promptly responded, and researched the answer for us. He took the initiative to go above and beyond if he felt it was in our best interest. When we had a contract on our house and the inspector felt there may be a leak, he immediately went out to the house to look, dug around, found the leak and turned the water off. Doug’s wife Heather is an absolute doll, and frequently assisted Doug. She added a valuable aesthetic viewpoint, and consistently exhibited the same hard working and helpful approach as Doug. As an added bonus, she is a “paint whisperer” and can detect differences in paint color that I am quite sure most human eyes cannot. Looking at new homes can be overwhelming for a buyer, and thankfully Doug and Heather often remembered our home “wish list” better than we did. For example, they would ask, “But where would your piano go?” or remind us that we needed space for both of our home offices. And as an added bonus, they are fun to be around! I can say that I recommend Doug Gernert as your next realtor without reservation. I will be singing his praises to all of my friends and family in need of a new home!

Doug is a great realtor!

He cares for his clients and will go the extra mile to make sure you find the perfect home. My family and I had very little time to find a home and he made it happen!

wanda murray

My husband and I have done many real estate deals over the years, and were also real estate professionals for several years.

We have high expectations on a realtor's performance, and were very pleased with Doug's communication, follow up, professionalism, and sense of humour. We had to sell our property during a stressful time (covid-19 pandemic) and were not allowed to enter the country to obtain our possessions, due to border restrictions. Doug assisted us in getting them sent back to Canada, and kept us up to date with the shipping details. We highly recommend Doug's services. You won't be disappointed.

Last year we were on the market to sale our house in Ormond Beach.

For a while my family was searching for the right person to help us. Eventually we found very intelligent, highly professional and just down to earth person to do business with. Doug Gernert took full charge to get all necessary things done to insure quick sale of our property. He went above and beyond his responsibilities to help me sell my house from a distance, as I live in the different part of the state. Doug has made himself available in the evening and on the weekends, proactively getting answers to our various questions. I always found comfort in the knowledge that he is on top of all issues. He would communicate with me if any problems arrived. He was very responsive to of all my messages in very timely matter. He is the perfect Realtor®, because no matter how stressed out we would get, Doug was calm and collected. We do thank him for his hard work. I would highly recommend Doug Gernert to anyone who is purchasing or selling a house.

I got lucky when I called Remax and got Doug Gernert.

My son is a remax agent in Indiana and is a hard worker, I was lucky enough to get the same from Doug and even more. Doug went above and beyond for us and was always pleasant and smiling he is in my opinion a great asset to the Remax team. Thanks, Mark Graves

Our experience with Doug was excellent.

He was extremely professional and his responsiveness in all situations kept us calm thru the whole process. We are glad to have chosen Doug as our realtor.

Mauricio Silva

We were at a loss to find a real estate agent who we could rely on since we were purchasing an out-of-state home.

Luckily, our sister-in-law recommended Doug who quickly ascertained exactly what we were looking for. Doug is very knowledgeable about the Daytona Beach area and was very patient with us as we perused several houses. He set aside a few days for us to travel to FL and look at a multitude of properties. We were impressed with the thoroughness of his initial walkthroughs. Once, we placed a bid on a house, Doug continued to work diligently for us. When the home inspection report was sent to us, he took it upon himself to go back to the house and check on some of the issues and shared his findings with us so that we could make an informed decision on how to proceed. Doug made us feel like we were old friends and put us at ease every step of the way. We do not often leave reviews, but in this particular case, we inquired about how we could leave one simply because Doug offered superior service and knowledge. If you are seeking a buyer's or seller's agent in or near Daytona and you want the very best, you will want to work with Doug Gernert.

Melinda

Doug,Thanks for going above and beyond!

We just want you to know how much we appreciate all the help, guidance and true care you have shown Amber (daughter) throughout her search for a "new" home. Also, all the extra care and and concern in selling her previous home! You've been a pure joy to work with! Many Blessing. Karen and Rick

Doug was great helping us sell my late father's home.

He met with us before we signed, gave us a prediction about the market, and found a buyer right in the range of his prediction. He was fair, responsive, and communicative throughout the process. If you are thinking of selling a home, I would highly recommend Doug and REMax Signature.

It’s nice to find a realtor who cares more about finding there clients the right home for there family than getting to closing and collecting a commission!

! Five stars for sure!!

Tracy Hester

Doug is the best realtor we have dealt with over the years.

Working with us would have exhausted the patience of other realtors, but not Doug. He is detailed orientated, extremely thorough, timely in response and truly cared about our needs. Would recommend him to anyone looking for someone to be their realtor.

Lawrence Scovotto

Doug was just great to work with.

He helped us sell 2 homes in the past year. He is professional, personable, easy going, and kept us informed. We highly recommend him.

Doug was very easy to work with and had helpful important information on the steps to take.

Most definitely would recommend him!

Raymond and Janet Francis

We listed, sold and closed in 30 days!

Thank you Doug!

Patrick Hanley

Doug is an exceptional realtor!

We found him through referral after an unexpected passing of a family member. We had no one in the area and relied on him for much more than a normal real estate transaction. His service levels and attention to detail are off-the-charts. I've bought and sold a number of properties and I cannot imagine that you'll find a better realtor.

Richard Riley

Doug helped sell my late father's home the day that it was listed.

He was confident in the period before signing as our agent, and came in right within the range that he predicted. The process was fair, and we had no complaints at all. He went above and beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend him and REMax Signature if you are thinking about selling your home.

Nancy & Nelson Brown

Doug was attentive, available always and never gave up until I found my perfect home!

I would definitely recommend him and use him again. Thank you Doug for everything!

Susan Burkett

Doug was wonderful.

He was patient with us as we took time to contemplate this move. He offered guidance, good sound advice and relieved any fears we may have had. We trusted his experience as we often asked, what would you do for your family. We would absolutely recommend Doug to our family and friends (or even strangers) looking to purchase or sell a home.

Mark & Tammy Dunn

Doug did a great job selling our house and coordinating all the elements for the closing.

Several challenges popped up during the process, but Doug was able to get them resolved and we had an on-time closing. I would highly recommend him to anyone selling a home.

Dustin R. Weeks

Doug is extremely knowledgeable in his field, and he is also enjoyable to be around.

He made recommendations on what we could do to sell quickly (and we did!), and gave us the advice and confidence we needed to ask what we deserved for our well-maintained beautiful home. We got over our asking price, and we believe Doug’s guidance helped to make that happen. We highly recommend him!

"Doug is the best realtor who we have ever worked with. We are selling and moving out of state. He helped us develop a timeline and gave us excellent ideas of small things to do that really made our house appealing to the eventual buyer. The entire process was smooth and hassle-free from that first meeting until closing. He uses a wonderful photographer who implements 3-D pics that allows you to move throughout the home and view all rooms at 360 degrees. Doug responded to even the smallest questions usually within minutes. You can tell that Doug has been doing this for awhile and that you are in good hands throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend this realtor with absolutely no reservations."
