I am the broker-in-charge at Hi-Alta Real Estate. I have used Doug for my home inspections for years. I recommend him to all my new agents. His is very thorough and knowledgable but his best quality is his calm demeanor. He has a calming influence in making the buyer feel informed but not scared. He thoroughly explains any needed repairs but at the same time can also explain whether or not the repairs are urgent or can possibly be done at a later date. That is very helpful for buyers in a sometimes scary position.
