"I would highly recommend Doug Merlino Jr. to anyone looking for a proactive and professional real estate broker. Doug has supported not only myself, but my friends and business associates with selling and buying real estate. He has also provided real estate advice numerous times so he certainly goes above and beyond for his customers. Doug and his family have been in the real estate industry for over 30 years therefore having tremendous knowledge in different areas! Call him, you won't be disappointed!"

Rachel, Huntington Beach

"I was required to move back to California and Doug was my broker and had to work with my relocation company as well. Doug's work ethics and knowledge of real estate was critical in saving me over $100,000 dollars in the purchase of my home. Doug is the best in the business and would recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate broker!"

David, Yorba Linda/Long Beach


"Doug was a joy to work with. He went out of his way to help us find the right house. As we looked at homes, he began to figure out what it is we were looking for and began to help us narrow our search to find just the right place, in our price range. When it came time to negotiate the price, he worked well with the seller to get us a good price and even helped us to get a good loan, with a great interest rate. I highly recommend Doug and guarantee, we will use him again, whenever we look for another home."

Randy, Pasadena/LA


"I bought an investment property in 2010 and I was so glad I had Doug on my side throughout the whole experience.

He first hooked me up with a great loan guy to pre-qualify for the loan. This person also did a great job to help close escrow on time. After the pre-qualification, we started our search for the right property for me.

Doug was very patient during our long search for the property. He provided valuable insight and advice to help me narrowed my search. I never felt pushed to get something just so he can get his commission. He was very professional but also had this great sense of humor, so I felt like I was out with a friend rather than just a real estate agent.

After viewing numerous properties, I made an offer on this property that was a short-sale transaction, which turned out to be rather complicated. Many issues surfaced along the way dealing with the bank, the lender and the sales agent. And Doug provided the expertise and guidance to resolve these issues throughout the entire process to ensure the final outcome was a successful one.

Doug had exceeded my expectations."


Tom, Irvine/Mission Viejo


"I have had the pleasure of working with Doug, both as a listing agent and as a selling agent. He is well organized and always has his client's best interests in mind. I would highly recommend him to both buyers and sellers, as he is what I would call, a true professional, and his clients love him."


Todd Gan The Loan Man, Lender/Southern California


"Doug is the consummate professional. He is honest and personable. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a low-pressure, creative, and expert real estate agent."
