Doug arrived in Southern Pines 4 years ago newly retired from a career in the HVAC/R ( the “R” stands for Refrigeration) industry. The majority of Doug’s career saw him involved with his family’s wholesale business, the R. D. Marshall & Co. Inc. located in Albany, New York, serving upstate New York and western Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Vermont. The last third of his career found him traveling throughout New England, this time as a manufacturer’s representative, again serving the HVAC/R wholesale industry.
Part of what drives Doug is the desire to give back some of his time and talent to his industry, the local business community, and the neighborhood where he lives. To that end, Doug has served several trade associations, civic organizations, and local community groups. He has served as President of several of these organizations. Currently, he volunteers in the heart rehab program at the hospital.
Doug has enjoyed boating and has a Captain’s License issued by the Coast Guard. He has sailed the New England coast line, major lakes, and even sailed the British Virgin Islands in his own boat and on boats that he has chartered. When not actually on some boat someplace, Doug enjoys building models of boats which can take several years to complete. Doug’s wife, Midge, also enjoys model ship building, (she is currently finishing up a multi-year project, The Flying Cloud), and has joined him on his nautical adventures for the past 50 plus years.
It is not surprising that Doug got a little restless doing “yard work” the past few years, so here he is, a Licensed Real Estate Broker/Realtor working with the fine people at Coldwell Banker Advantage.
I really enjoy the opportunity to help people find their home. If I can help you sell or buy a home, which is what drives me, I would love to help. That is what is behind my personal motto, “To Better Serve You with the Best.” I really am working with the best Real Estate company and that makes Serving You with the Best very easy and fun. I will never “sell” you a house, I will always help you find a home.
