Doug Lindstrom has been my agent on 3 transactions – so I know his style and professionalism. There are 3 qualities that come to mind when I think of Doug as my Real Estate Agent. The first is Integrity. I can’t find another agent with the level of honesty as an individual and dedication as a professional. Doug never hesitated to share with me the good, the bad and the ugly. You ask him a question, he’ll give you a straight answer as if he were the one purchasing/selling for himself. His “tell it like it is” personality gave me great confidence in making informed and eventually the right decisions. Talk about fulfilling his fiduciary responsibilities to me! I truly felt he looked out for my interest first.
The second quality is his knowledge in real estate, in business, and (the extra bonus) in construction (being a contractor in his previous profession). Every realtor has the basic “check the box” attributes to sell/buy a home. Doug’s “value-added” attribute is that he can spot items in a house that the average homebuyer won’t pick up on – specifically regarding quality of construction of the home and general wear-and-tear items. Talk about an added bonus! Again, it’s something that most agents can’t provide.
And finally, the third quality is his Attention to Detail. During each transaction, I never once asked him to do things twice. Consider things done on time and done with thoroughness. In fact, things got done before me ever knowing! He knows his stuff; He is a person of action.
This guy’s good…
Doug exhibited such caring concern…What one typically views as only a business relationship began to incorporate the attributes of a respected and trusted friend. I am indeed grateful for the services of quality that he extended on our behalf. Throughout the process, Doug was diligent in updating us on developments and in responding to our calls and concerns. We never had the feeling that he had lost interest in our needs. There is no question, in our minds, that Doug is a professional who knows exactly what needs to be done to sell and purchase a home.
Doug’s personal touch and vast knowledge of the complex real estate business combined to make him the best agent we’ve ever worked with. We continue to recommend Doug to potential clients (including our own family) at every opportunity.
It is hard to be concise about Doug’s service as he is so professional, competent, caring, and thorough…I could write paragraphs. Doug is an outstanding agent. He brings humanity and honesty to the profession.
He even introduced us to a terrific church!
Could Not Recommend Highly Enough
Being a single woman, I was reluctant to work with a male Realtor. A friend of mine had recently bought a home with the help of Doug Lindstrom. He came highly recommended by her so I was put at ease when it came time to sell my home.
From the very first meeting, I could tell that Doug was not going to take advantage of me being a naive, first time homeseller. He took the time to explain the current market and I was very impressed by his marketing plan. Doing my own research, he is an internet person and my property was easy to find.
Throughout the whole process, he gave me regular updates and followed up with the parties that showed my home. He actually told me not to accept an offer that I was willing to accept because he thought I could do better. He was right! I was able to get a better offer within a few days.
I cannot recommend Doug highly enough. He took care of everything and put me at ease.
Job Well Done!
I’m writing this letter to express my gratitude and appreciation for a job well done on your part. You have made my home-buying experience pleasant and seamless. Your professionalism and expertise coupled with your personable touch was a credit to your team in High Plains Village.
Beyond Any Expectations We Had
We wanted to take a few moments to thank you, and to relay how very much we have enjoyed working with you. Your high level of professionalism; your enthusiasm and positive attitude throughout the entire process of selling our home really helped to make the entire process a very pleasant one indeed. We would not hesitate to recommend you to any friends or acquaintances (in fact, we have already done so on numerous occasions!).
We really appreciated that you kept us informed on all aspects of marketing our home; and were impressed with how quickly you provided any feedback or comments relating to showings. Your e-mails let us know exactly what steps you had taken to provide maximum advertsing and exposure in the current real estate market. We felt confident that our property was more than adequately represented with the websites which provided, not only photos and tours of our home, but videos of the surrounding areas and amenities as well. This gave us a great comfort level that a prospective buyer would be able to get a very good feel for what our had to offer.
You went above and beyond any expectations we had, and we were amazed at your willingness to meet with us at whatever time was convenient for us (but must have made for some very long hours for you). Your help with the moving process was most appreciated, and we can’t thank you enough for providing boxes and hauling away things for us….. talk about going the extra mile!
If and when we needed to leave a message for you, we were greeted with an upbeat and professional message and then our calls were returned quickly and you provided us with any necessary copies or details requested. You have been an absolute joy to work with, and we can’t thank you enough for all of your support and encouragement throughout.
I can’t begin to tell you what a delight it was working with you. I am forever grateful for your CSU website that brought us to you. As you will remember, Steven and I live in Denver and we were very interested in purchasing a residence for our son, Trevor, who is attending CSU. I did a “search” on the internet since I didn’t have a clue what I was looking for, and discovered your website that was everything I was looking for.
You were very respectful of Trevor and spent the time necessary for him to get an idea of what was available, what he could afford and what he liked and we walked away with a great deal. You were every bit our advocate and I found your advice on target, professional and always in our best interest.
The search process, and closing process could not have been made easier by you. Your recommendation for our loan was the best we have ever experienced…and we have had many! And even after the closing, when all hands had been shaken, you were still there making sure everything went well and that we found the right contractors for some improvements we wanted to make, for the right price.
I can assure you that when it comes time to sell this townhome, we will be contacting you.
I Would Recommend Him To Anyone
Home selling is a rather serious and stressful endeavor. Doug’s aggressive marketing, use of technology and sweat equity generated the visibility our home needed to sell quickly in a tough market. His attention to detail and professionalism is why I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Doug, I also wanted to add- Doug’s brokering style was sensitive to our situation in listing our home, while still providing a fresh and bold plan to market it. He is the combination of techy, fearless, knowledgeable and personal.
Someone That You Can Trust
Being an older couple that had only sold one other home in our lifetime, we wanted to work with someone that we trusted. Being in sales myself for over 45 years, I can usually size people up pretty quickly. Doug is a person of character and even when the sale of our condo was completed, he wanted to make sure we were ok going back to Louisiana.
Doug’s salesmanship abilities and real estate knowledge is second to none. We consider Doug to be a blessing and will cherish his friendship for as long as Pat and I live. ReMax, you are very lucky and fortunate to have a gentleman like Doug Lindstrom on your team. To Pat and I, he is is the Super Bowl of Realtors
If you need someone that you can trust and is will give it to you straight, Doug is the one you need to talk to.
He Works Very Hard To Assure Your Success
Doug isn’t one of those Realtors that lists your home and then just hopes for the best, he works very hard to assure your success. No one knows our community better and is more active in it than Doug. If you’re thinking of selling, we would highly recommend that you give Doug a call. It has been a pleasure.
Integrity Driven Business. Period
Doug is an honest and ethical leader in the Northern Colorado Real Estate community. He listed our cabin and we sold it in three months (after trying on our own for two years.) We negotiated a fee which worked for both of us. Doug did everything he said he would do and more.
Integrity driven business. Period.
Worked Tirelessly For Us
As our agent, Doug truly understood our needs. He gave us a thorough market analysis of our home and worked tirelessly to provide us with excellent service even while we were out of state. He was always there to offer support, guidance and friendship.
Would Recommend Him To Anyone
I was very pleased with my experience with Doug Lindstrom. He made every effort to put my wants and needs ahead of his. From the beginning, he always worked with my schedule no matter what, even if it was after hours.
This was my first time purchasing a home, so I didn’t know much abou the process. He was very helpful in explaining the whole process to me. He didn’t always tell me what I wanted to hear which was a good thing. He didn’t only point out the positive things, he pointed out negative things as well, which was helpful so I could look for other issues in other houses.
Once we found the house I wanted there were some issues that I wanted to get resolved before going further into the transaction. Doug made everything go smoothly and made it completely stress-free. He definitely left me a satisfied customer and I would recommend him to anyone.
Knowledgeable, Accessible, Hardworking
Doug Lindstrom was my realtor-my agent-then my transactional broker. In what was perceived as a tough “sellers” market, he provided invaluable insight as to market conditions, marketing efforts and pricing points. His knowledge as to the area and homes were second to none. After signing with Doug, he followed through on marketing. His use of signage, brochures, the internet and his own hard effort was excellent.
After every showing, I would receive feedback. I have bought and sold a number of properties over the years and had never seen anything quite like this. It made you feel as if you more involved and opened upon the lines of communication. In the past, I often wondered what was happening and the only way I could find out was by calling. With Doug, his surveys and his calls keep you in the loop. If I had any questions, Doug was always available to talk until I was satisfied. Within a short few weeks, he brought a willing buyer to the table. That buyer happened to be his client, however. After speaking with me about a change in status from an agent to a transactional broker, I was quite comfortable.
After that, he did an excellent job of facilitating the negotiations such that they were quickly successful. The home sold quickly and without a hitch. I would recommend Doug Lindstrom to anyone looking for
a realtor that is knowledgeable, accessible and hardworking-be it as an agent or a transactional broker. If those are not qualities you are looking for in a realtor, then Doug probably is not your guy.
I highly recommend Doug Lindstrom for all your real estate needs. He made the home buying and home selling process incredibly smooth, even through a very challenging purchase. His consummate professionalism and even-keeled demeanor helped us keep our wits during times when we were ready to walk away. Friendly reminders to us about winning the war (owning a beautiful home) were a blessing.
I very much appreciated Doug’s active communication throughout both buying and selling transactions. His great attention to detail and availability to answer our questions at a moment’s notice really stood out. He took time to truly listen and understand our wants and needs in finding the right new home. His knowledge of the market and honesty in what we needed to accomplish to set our old home up for selling success was refreshing. His suggested price point was spot on and the investment in professional photos helped set the stage for getting our home sold immediately.
Honesty, integrity, caring, dedicated, ethical, knowledgeable, professional…the list goes on and on. I knew I would be walking away with a beautiful new home when all was said and done. I did not know I would also be walking away with a friend. Thank you, Doug!

Doug has bought and sold multiple homes for me!
I met Doug through a referral from my sister. Doug has been doing real estate for my parents, sister and niece. Our family had some complicated real estate issues that Doug handled beautifully. He has a gift for attention to detail and his follow up was spot on. Then, I decided to move from Castle Rock to Severance. I wanted one real estate person for the selling and purchasing of both homes. He got me a great price on both homes, and through out the process, sent emails of the construction of the new home, brokered on my behalf to protect my interests. Two years later, I am selling this home and of course Doug is my choice. He gave me great advice on listing, showing, and spent time discussing all my options so that I could make the best possible decision. There was not one hiccup in the process. I think this is because he was on top of the buyers real estate agent and he proactively anticipated issues I could expect to encounter. I love having zero surprises. He has a terrific knowledge of the market, as well as an excellent business mind. This is not a hobby for him. He is truly a professional and now someone I am happy to call my friend. If you every need someone, I highly recommend Doug Lindstrom. You will not be sorry. I will miss Doug as I move out of state.
Could not have done it with him!
The headline is not an exaggeration and not understated in any way. We literally could not have sold our house without Doug’s expertise.
We were selling a home that we bought directly from a builder. When we received a quick offer, we were thrilled. When the buyer completed the inspection, we were shocked to see such a long list of items that they wanted us to correct. Our home was just over 2 years old and still basically brand new. We panicked because we knew the builder’s warranty would most likely not cover any of the issues. Most of the items on the inspection we didn’t even know about and they didn’t show up on the original walk-through with the builder. The inspection made it sound like the house was about to come down on top of us. Doug took charge. He took pictures and measurements.
After that, he said to please give him a day or two to get back to us. As promised, he got back to us and told us 5 of the 7 items on the inspection list were already taken care of. We said “what”? He followed up with the city and the third party code enforcement company. 4 of the items on the inspection were signed off by the code enforcement company. The inspector saw items that looked out place but were in fact, repaired by the builder and ultimately signed off by the code enforcement company. One of the other items had to do with the furnace not being properly grounded. The home inspector said it was not but the city code confirmed that it was. Turns out, the home inspector was from Boulder and they have different requirements. Doug basically created a paper trail that documented the code enforcement inspections, failed inspection notices and code re-inspection dates that listed the items as completed appropriately. Not to mention other documents that showed the house could not have been occupied with being completed. The buyer and their agent had no choice but to accept our counter-proposal for the repair items because of the documentation that Doug was able to get from the city building department.
After all of this, we literally had to fix one item and do a little touch-up painting on another. If it wasn’t for Doug (we later learned he was previously a contractor), we most likely would have had to pay a structural engineer and a framing contractor to repair the items that were listed on the home inspection. We felt so much stress from that home inspection but within a days time, we were completely relieved. I’m not sure any other agent would have taken charge of the situation like Doug did. As I said, we could not have done it without him.

I highly recommend
I’ve know Doug for several years. He has helped me sell two homes and also buy two homes. For my most recent sale, I had the opportunity to try Doug’s “no brainer listing program”. The program allows a seller to participate in the selling process, with the potential to save on commission costs. I was able to schedule and host all of my open houses. I had as many as I wanted and for whatever duration I chose. Doug supplied the signs and did all of the advertising. He also provided a Facebook ad so I could leverage social media to get the word out. Doug provided all of the necessary tools and support. The experience was very rewarding, and given the amount of time I invested, extremely worthwhile. I highly recommended it.
