Choosing which company to affiliate with is the first critical step to a successful and rewarding career in real estate. Even the hardest working, most talented Realtor will struggle without the tools and technology demanded by today's sophisticated consumer.

"Doug is always available, always has an answer, and is incredibly supportive. I interviewed a lot of managers and Doug was hands down the best (not to mention the office is fantastic!). His knowledge of the business, from a business standpoint is extraordinary. I had the choice of going with many different offices, but I chose Doug's because I would need help starting in a new market and didn't want to get lost in the shuffle. I knew that I would be a bit of burden at first (and I still am to some extent) but one that I knew Doug would easily handle. I was very much interested in working with someone who had actually sold real estate, and not simply a lawyer (apologies to all lawyers out there). Doug has sold a lot, and his counsel is always great. Upbeat and smart are two of his greatest features, but his enthusiasm wins the day. We all know as salespeople that enthusiastic people get the listing, and being around his enthusiasm is infectious - which helps all salespeople who come in contact with him. " - Dave Leonard
"Doug Devine took over the manager position at the Coldwell Banker Market St office shortly after I was hired. As soon as he stepped in, the office seemed to take off. The overall atmosphere improved as well as the statistics. He continually offers various training events to help us sharpen our skills stay competitive in any market. I think personally what I most appreciate about him this office is how he allows me to work outside the normal real estate box run my business in a way that fits my lifestyle versus a standard business model. He is available when I need him holds himself to the same high level he expects of us." - Beverly Savelli
