The following is a sampling of comments from my clients:
Doug Wear is an exceptional professional who helped make our first purchase in Avalon effortless. Doug knows the market well and works tirelessly to find the right home for his clients’ preferences and needs. He never pushed to sell us something that wasn’t right for our family and provided many of the resources and recommendations we needed to make our house a home. We would definitely choose to use Doug again.”

We heartily recommend Doug Wear! Doug helped us purchase our beach house. He worked very hard to find the right place for us. He presented us with numerous options and really listened to our comments regarding the attributes we were seeking in a beach house. He had a positive and upbeat manner that made the whole process enjoyable.
We also have recommended Doug to a number of friends in connection with rental properties, and each of them thanked us for doing so. When our friends or we have real estate needs on the Seven Mile Island, Doug is our go-to guy.”

Doug was a pleasure to deal with. A consummate professional who helped us find our dream home on the shore. If anyone we know is looking to rent or purchase a home on the Seven Mile Island, we will not hesitate to send them to Doug.”

Doug Wear knows the market like no other agent we have ever met. He was always available, super responsive, friendly, and knowledgeable. He was patient, as we searched for a vacation home. We looked and looked, but Doug was the one who found our diamond in the rough. Doug knew the property had potential. And wow, was he right. After an exterior renovation, we have the perfect home, in the perfect spot on the island, with a lot of perfect memories to make. We couldn’t have done it without him. Thank you, Doug!”
– Jim and Yvonne Mastracchio
We worked with Doug for a three-year period to find the property we desired. Doug kindly researched property listings we were interested in and went on numerous house- hunting trips with us. Having been a long time 7 Mile Island resident, Doug knows the market very well and helped us narrow our search. He recommended a solid lending officer and insurance agency and navigated the details to ensure a smooth close. We are thrilled to have a place on the island and would work with Doug any time.”
– Carolyn & Jeff Straton
Doug has been terrific to work with and has made our rental listing experience much easier than we expected. I have worked with Doug over the last few years renting my Mother’s house in Avalon. After a long period of not renting, I convinced her to get back into the rental market. She was very concerned with this idea, but decided to give it a shot. Doug has been extremely helpful and considerate regarding my Mother’s concerns and apprehension. He has been on top of any issue that has arisen and is always there with a good suggestion, improving our chances to gain more exposure or secure more rental weeks. I would highly recommend Doug to anyone who is in need of an experienced and trustworthy agent.”
– Andrew Peszka
I highly recommend Doug for all of your realty needs. Doug patiently worked with me for years as I worked through my decision to purchase a home in Avalon. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Seven Mile Island and was always helpful without being pushy. Doug is a great guy and, since I’ve moved to Avalon, he has become a friend in addition to being my realtor. You can trust Doug with all of your important real estate needs.”
– Tad LeVan
Doug has been a pleasure to work with — he lists our Avalon home for rental and has consistently found us reliable, respectful tenants. He responds to any questions or concerns we have immediately. I highly recommend him!”
– Alison McCook
We have been working with Doug for about 10 years and are wonderfully happy with his resources, follow-up, and ability to get the job done. In all the years he has rented our home, to the surprise of many of my friends, we have never had any issues with a tenant. He also manages to get the rates we publish on the website. He really is a one-stop realtor. Doug is highly organized, frank, and hard working. He returns phone calls and emails promptly and has proven himself very worthy as a realtor. While we don’t plan on selling our house any time soon, he would be our “go to guy” if we ever decide to sell.”
