Douglas believes real estate is more of a service business than a sales business. Most important is to listen to your customers' needs, and be encouraging and optimistic no matter what the market holds.
"The market in New York is unlike anywhere else in the world. Finding a home can be overwhelming. If you are patient, upbeat, and motivated to act quickly, I know you will find exactly what you desire. No one loves New York more than I do, and I share that passion and knowledge with every client I represent. We'll have fun along the way, and get you settled into your new home in no time!"
Born in Brazil, Douglas came to the U.S. at a very young age. He was raised in Orlando, Florida plus lived in Miami; but he wanted to move to New York ever since he found out it existed! Studying acting at an early age, Douglas attended a performing arts middle school and the New World School of the Performing Arts high school in Miami. He earned a degree from the American Academy of The Performing Arts in NYC.
His background in acting and hospitality has given him the valuable qualities of discipline, dedication, creativity and attention to detail, along with a penchant for delivering client satisfaction and optimal results.
Douglas loves living in New York so much because he adores science fiction and the idea of being part of a futuristic city. He has called the Lower East Side of Manhattan home for over eight years. Outside of real estate, his interests include hand-making and selling custom hats, listening to music and collecting vinyl records.
