About Doug

Born and raised in Birmingham, I later graduated from the University of Alabama and played football there in 1970 and 1971, under the guidance of Paul “Bear” Bryant. I began my real estate business in Decatur, Alabama in 1988. I served as the President of the Morgan County Realtors Association and as a board member of the Morgan County Homebuilders Association. While in Decatur, I was instrumental in the development and sale of several large subdivisions

My wife and I moved to Gulf Shores in 1998 where I continued working with the development and sales of large subdivisions, as well as condo and beachfront sales. My wife and I also own and manage 27 rental properties. During this time, I have met a lot of amazing folks from all over the country and I have learned a lot about property sales and management.

My credentials are as follows:


B.A. – The University of Alabama

GRI – Graduate of Real Estate Institute

ABR – Accredited Buyer’s Representative

E-Pro- Computer / Electronics Professional

CRS – Certified Residential Specialist


I own and operate my own real estate business. I am a proven professional with extensive knowledge of real estate value in Baldwin County, Alabama. When you call or email, you are assured that you will be talking to a broker with over 30 years of experience who will assist you in making your buying or selling journey easy and fun!
