Downsize Your Home, Upsize Your Life


We knew Doug for several years as our neighbour so when we decided to downsize he was our first choice. He calmly explained all that we needed to do to get our house ready for the market and checked up on us as we went along to make sure we were not too overwhelmed with the whole process . It took us a solid two weeks to get everything done he told us we needed to do. He also brought in other professionals that helped us with staging, photography and selling some of our antiques of value. He then did a great job of getting our house sold in about 30 days through regular open houses, newspaper ads and the internet and got us a price that we were happy with. Doug was very helpful with the whole downsizing process and my only advice is don’t leave it too long it is a lot of work but well worth it. Our lives are heading in a new direction now that we have made the move. I would highly recommend Doug and his team if your downsizing.

When we met Doug we were at the place where could no longer manage living in our home. The maintenance and upkeep were beyond what we were still able to do. Doug and his team came in and helped clear out the immense amount of stuff we had collected over 50 years in the same house. It took days and days to get it all done. Then they arrange for our home to be painted and cleaned so we could put it on the market. It was sold in a couple of weeks. Doug then drove us on several occasions to Abbotsford where our kids live to help us find an assisted living facility. Once we found the place where we want to move, he helped with all the banking and change of address paper work. Thank you Doug for such a caring and thoughtful approach to helping us downsize.

Doug and his team where a great help with both educating and inspiring us to downsize. They gave us good solid advice every step of the way and were there whenever we need the encouragement to keep going. Since downsizing, we have been travelling more, exploring new activities and we are spending more time planning our next steps together. If you’re thinking of downsizing, our advice would be don’t wait too long to do this.

We had the pleasure of dealing with Doug as our agent in the purchase of our first home. We had literally met dozens of realtors through open houses and contacts and had come to the conclusion they were all the same: pushy, aggressive, and even dishonest in their quest to sell the house or get you as a client. That was until we met Doug who was refreshingly honest, relaxed, and client focused. He was invaluable in helping us search for a home as well as in negotiating the purchase. He was absolutely professional, responsive, and forthright in the whole process and at the same time patient, friendly, and courteous.An agents who is a pleasure to work with in a business that all too often attracts the opposite.

Doug Taylor of the Sutton Group in North Vancouver was referred to us with high regard and from the moment our family met Doug and asked him to go to work for our son, it has been a very positive purchasing experience to say the least. Through Doug’s expertise, our son found the perfect condo and was able to negotiate and close a fair offer that is certain to result in significant future gains. On behalf on my son and family, I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend his real estate services.

Doug provided us with very valuable advice, useful real estate market information and great assistance in helping us find a suitable property. They are very patience in working closely with us and informed us immediately as soon as a suitable property was available in the market. They never put any pressure on us to buy a property. It’s a pleasure to have them as our real estate brokers.“

Doug assisted us with the sale of our previous condo and the purchase of our present condo. They are hard working, genuine, honest realtors with a talent for marketing a property, using the perfect tool available to achieve an ideal outcome. Their investment in time and energy resulted into a wonderful home for us.
