Doug was great to work with, he is knowledgeable and makes excellent recommendations to maximize sale potential. He is honest and very patient. I would give Doug my strongest recommendation and highest rating. Dean R.
Doug was extremely professional, very diligent about follow up with me and potential purchasers, and was always available for me. I was very impressed with the work he did up front prior to pricing my home and how hard he worked to get my house sold. I would use him again if the opportunity presented itself.

We recently hired Doug to sell our townhome in located Potomac Yard, Alexandria. His in-depth knowledge of the community and the marketplace, he was able to sell our home quickly. Doug helped us navigate the market even during the pandemic and made sure that all potential buyers, inspectors, agents, etc were mindful of our health and well-being. This was something that was very important to us. If you’re needing an agent that is highly communicative, keen to solve problems quickly, and really knows the DC/Northern VA marketplace, Doug is your agent! Chris S.
Doug was very knowledgeable and had great knowledge of the market. He gave a very thorough analysis of the comps in the building and in the surrounding area. He was very responsive to my questions and kept me up to date on all traffic we had. All paperwork was discussed prior to signing and there were no surprises in the closing process. Tim O.
Doug Richards did a tremendous job for us recently when we purchased a home in DC. He is professional, responsive, highly skilled at all aspects of buying and selling homes, and was an absolute delight to work with during the entire process. We also used Doug five years ago when we purchased a home in Alexandria, VA. He exceeded our expectations then, too. We highly recommend Doug Richards for all your real estate needs! Michele C.
If you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional and responsive agent look no further. Doug is never more than a text message away and always has incredibly insightful recommendations to help you make the best decisions for your family. Doug helped put me in a home we love, advised on possible upgrades and was kind enough to dissuade us from making a move a few years later that would have made him money but cost my family in the long run. I really can't thank or recommend him enough. CALL THIS GUY!!!! Lawrence N.
My wife and I met Doug while he was a sales agent working with a national property development company, in a development where we eventually purchased our first home. Doug initially showed us a property that we were highly interested in. However, due to a tight closing timeline, we were unable to move forward with the purchase. About 6 weeks later, Doug proactively contacted us, informing us that an similar property had just come on line. Luckily for us, that property had even better features, and Doug negotiated hard on our behalf to secure the lowest possible purchase price for us. During the entire process, Doug was always "on our side", and available, for every step: from financing advice and support; to construction visits; feature selection; and the closing phase. As first time home buyers, it felt reassuring to have such a hardworking and caring, agent on our side. Doug is a consummate professional and a joy to work with. He is knowledgeable, firm, responsive, and friendly. Highly recommended. Alex K.
My wife and I would give only the highest remarks concerning Doug Richards. We purchased a condo from Pulte and Doug was the Sales Manager we worked with. Throughout the process, Doug showed excellent knowledge of the project and of the area. He was very helpful as well as very honest. He always followed through on questions and concerns we may have had. Once we decided to build/buy with Pulte, Doug did not disappear. He continued to be our advocate. When we had a few serious issues during the construction process Doug was there to proactively represent us. He came up with alternatives that made sense and worked hard to resolve our issues. Once we completed the purchase Doug stayed proactive and worked to assist us to get issues resolved. Doug went out of his way to raise concerns with the Condo Board when appropriate or to push back on Pulte. Never once did Doug abandon us or take the easy way in his management. As I stated in the beginning. Nothing but high marks for Doug. His Customer Service skills are superior. High knowledge, excellent follow-up, and a desire to help his customer. I would certainly recommend Doug to anyone. Scot N.
Doug Richards is an experienced real estate market expert who is a joy to work with! He’s a great listener and always keeps his client’s best interests top of mind. He’s a hard worker and will be there every step of the way. Carla P, Area President, Stanley Martin Homes
I met Doug about 2.5 years ago when I just moved to the DC area from NJ. We met on a Saturday and I signed the contract on Monday. Doug asked all the right questions and knew exactly what I needed and made it happen. For most brokers, that's good enough, but not Doug. He stayed with me for six months as this was new construction. I had numerous issues with design, upgrades, and construction quality. Doug, as the salesperson, stepped in every time and became my advocate. He called, emailed, and texted me right back, even when he was off. After closing, I had a ding in my hardwood floor, and Doug found a matching hardwood plank so I could replace it like new. Nobody does that, but that's the kind of service you will get from Doug. I'm an executive for a Fortune 200 company and have worked with many salespeople. Doug is a special talent and that rare person who really cares about you. I would highly recommend Doug to find your perfect home and to sell your existing home. James K.
