After several other realtors , Doug was a breath of fresh air! HE listened to what We wanted and found us the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood. He went above and beyond helping us get the house of our dreams. Doug didn't quit with the closing , He kept his word to help us get every thing right and be there for us. Holly Anne Talley – Holly Anne Talley
Although I had been a Realtor for many years in New York, before I became a licensed agent in Florida, I purchased my townhouse from Doug. His service and knowledge was exceptional. From our first meeting to sitting at the closing table, Doug was with us all the way. If your looking for the best agent for Selling or Buying, you want Doug and his team. Lou Atti, Colleague — May 29, 2014 – Doug Atkins
I struck gold when I was able to hire Doug as my realtor. I had been looking for a house for a year with another realtor and they were just not cutting it. Doug was always available for my wife and I to go look at numerous properties. If not for his relationships that he has with other realtors we would not have purchased our new home. I am very thankful to him and his staff for all their hard work they did for my family. Thanks Doug :) Stephen Wolstenholme, Client — February 23, 2015 – Doug Atkins
As most know that have been through the process, selling a home can be a long, frustrating, and tedious undertaking. That happened to be the case in the sale of my home. When things seemed as if they were at a standstill, I was introduced to Doug Atkins through another satisfied client and can positively say that I could not have been happier with the results. Doug’s knowledge of my homes market was multi-faceted and brought many good ideas to the table right away, even before I chose him to represent me. He was able to provide marketing ideas that were previously “a stone unturned”. He provided the quality attributes of patience and positivity. There were many questions throughout the process and he was always quick to return calls, answer questions, etc. He stressed the idea of patience and staying positive and that there is always a buyer for a home and that they just need to be found. The trait that I was most happy with was him being realistic and to the point. Cody Montgomery, Client — February 26, 2015 – Doug Atkins
Doug Atkins is not your ordinary realtor. he goes the extra mile by researching the market data so thoroughly, by explaining everything so well, and by giving prompt and special attention to his clientele - even those with cheaper houses. Doug goes to bat when discrepancies occur. And when a situation feels hopeless, he never loses faith. His professionalism, sincerity, and empathy make him a FIVE STAR REALTOR! Nick and Carol, Client — February 26, 2015 – Doug Atkins
I don't know why I picked Doug out of all of the fancy advertised agents, but we are so happy that we did. I don't think we could have gotten any better. He is dedicated, caring and very aggressive. He was there for us 24/7 to answer any questions and concerns. I would recommend him 100% and will use him again. Jose and Barbara Casado, Other — March 11, 2015 – Doug Atkins
This was my first home buying experience. I was nervous and a little apprehensive, due to all of the horror stories I have heard from others regarding their home buying experiences. From the first phone call all the way through the closing process, Doug was there every step of the way, answering questions, addressing concerns, and going to bat for me and ensuring I got the home I truly wanted. During negotiations, he stayed in contact and provided updates. After the contract was signed, Doug walked me through each step and made sure I understood what I needed to ensure everything progressed smoothly. This home buying experience was one of the smoothest experiences I have ever had when making a big purchase. I am truly grateful to have had Doug on my side during this entire process. Carrie Williams, Client — April 19, 2015 – Doug Atkins
Very impressed! Doug was there every step of the way. Explained the process in detail and always kept in touch. He took most of the pressure off my back all the way to the closing table. He sold my home in 9 days. In addition, he was confident and has techniques to make it happen. I felt very comfortable with Doug. I highly recommend him. Miriam, Client — June 17, 2015 – Doug Atkins

Doug is a great Realtor who really listens to you. He shows you what you want not what brings him the most commission. I recommend using his services. You won't go wrong. Adrienne Adriatico, Client — July 24, 2015 – Doug Atkins
Doug is very personable and professional. He was very helpful through the process of getting the house ready to put on the market, offering a range of suggestions and helping us prioritize our efforts during what can be a very stressful time. Doug has a great strategy for getting the house sold and it worked for us, we could not be happier. T Jackson, Client — September 25, 2015 – Doug Atkins
I had been in my previous home for 39 years before deciding to make a change and buy a new home. Having Doug and Ginger Atkins made my experience so easy guiding me through the entire process. They helped me sell my home and buy my new one. Their patience and knowledge helped everything go so smoothly communicating with me at all times. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great realtor. I could not be happier thanks to both Doug and Ginger. F Dibble, Client — October 29, 2015 – Doug Atkins
We would use Doug again when and if we decide to purchase another home. Doug went the extra mile in finding our place for us in the price range we asked for. We looked at several properties before making our decision and when we closed, there were no issues because everything was in order. Doug also sold our property for us a few years after purchasing it. His expertise again was commendable. W Sapp, Client — October 30, 2015 – Doug Atkins
Thirty five years ago I moved into my office on Maitland Avenue, today the sale was completed andclosed. Retired and loving it.Doug and Ginger Atkins at Exit Realty did a spectacular job. Thank you.....GS Gary Shader, Client — November 6, 2015 – Doug Atkins
I met Doug and Ginger as the listing agents for a condo I wanted to buy as an investment property. I ended up not buying that particular condo but was highly impressed with BOTH Doug and Ginger's follow-through, professionalism, attention to detail and knowledge about the Seminole County area. So I asked them to be my buyer's agent and they went to work! They were always quick to respond to my many questions which is a big plus in my book. I was just beginning my search for a condo to purchase and they took the time to walk me through the research and purchase process, teaching me the many details about buying an investment home which really says a lot about who they are. I admire the teamwork they have with each other and I feel they really complement each other well. I really can't say enough good things about Doug & Ginger and I hope to be able to work with them again in the future. I would highly recommend them to any of my friends and family that are looking for a real-estate a John and Alisen P, Client — November 20, 2015 – Doug Atkins
I can't say enough good things about Doug and Ginger. They handled the sale of my property while I was working overseas. They found the right buyer for me and handled all the details to make it as easy for me as possible. I definitely recommend them. GPR, Client — January 8, 2016 – Doug Atkins
My wife and I recently closed on the sale of a house in the city of Winter Springs. and feel compelled to honor the services of our Realtor, Doug Atkins, who so earnestly worked in our best interest to complete this sale. As out of state owners of a property inherited by my recently deceased sister, Doug oversaw the complete clean up and refurbishing of this house. The continued oversight of the property maintenance and upkeep was also diligently looked after by Doug. We trusted his advice and input implicitly throughout the sale period and could not have expected a more trustworthy advocate for our interests. Doug is a credit to his profession and we wish him the warmest regards for his future success. Bill and Karen B. Covina, CA – Doug Atkins
As you can see from the reviews for Doug (and Ginger), they are two people that can and will help you through the buying process. They did an excellent job making sure that we were aware of what we needed to do, that we understood the pros and cons of various decisions needing to be made, and negotiating with the seller's agent on our behalf. I highly recommend the Atkins Team if you are in need of assistance in buying a home. Thanks Doug and Ginger!! jmmartineau4 – Doug Atkins
From Kevin Calim: Working with Doug and Ginger was a lot like a breath of fresh air. As first time home buyers my wife and I were very clueless in regards to the process. Doug and Ginger were able to simplify the process and were extremely informative, and very responsive to all our questions and concerns. They were very much on our side and always made sure to point out every little detail that as first time home buyers we would have missed. They always helped make sure we were making the best financial decision. If your looking for a great team that provides exceptional service and truly goes above and beyond for YOU then you'll definitely want Team Atkins on your side. KEVIN CALIM – Doug Atkins
Doug and Ginger Atkins relieved all the stress in helping me sell my Mother's house since her passing. They took care of everything, I just showed up at the closing. I recommended them for all your realtor needs. Buying or selling made easy. by Florence Hughes – Doug Atkins
I can't say enough good things about Doug and Ginger. Had a property ( key word Had) with five acres , pool, tennis court, 30 by 60 ft building, free standing two car garage . Ten by sixteen Quonset type building. three thousand ft house with two kitchens. Now believe me it takes just that special person to use all that stuff . You have to really get the word out. Well as I said, if you want to sell, these are the people to do the job. I've also obtained two good friends in the transaction. Doug and Ginger thank you again. Client and new friends, Bruce and Peggy Hendryx. – Doug Atkins
After helping another member of my family with the sale of a property, Doug and Ginger were my go-to real estate team when shopping for a new home. Once I found a promising new listing online I wanted to visit, they quickly made arrangements with the current owner to schedule the tour (and on a national holiday to boot!). Given that it was my first time purchasing a new home, Doug and Ginger carefully walked me through the whole process, from offer to closing. They were always available to answer my questions, and they worked closely with my lender, my title company, and the seller's HOA to ensure all contractual deadlines were met, keeping my closing on schedule. They kept everything moving along so smoothly and stress-free that I wouldn't hesitate to call on them again! jprishell1 – Doug Atkins
Doug and Ginger were beyond helpful during this stressful time for my family and I. They showed concern for our family and made sure we were nothing but happy. Before coming across the two, I met with many other realtors and none of them compare to Doug and Ginger. They are so friendly and treat you as if they've known you their whole life. They are not pushy nor do they try to get you to buy anything at any price like most realtors. They make the home-buying/selling experience not so intimidating. I would recommend them to anyone. jsclarke0617 – Doug Atkins

Doug and Ginger were a pleasure to work with. They work together as a husband and wife team which provides a lot of benefits -- such as more availability for seeing houses and the specializing in their strengths. For example, Ginger is very detailed and handles the checklist for all the things that need to happen for a place to close whereas Doug helps more with the negotiating and offer phase. They are both very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. And the best part is that there is NO PRESSURE whatsoever to make a decision. They are really committed to making sure you buy a house you LOVE! I'd highly recommend working with them. Sheats 082116 – Doug Atkins
I am writing to express my pleasure with real estate agents Doug & Ginger Atkins, who represented me in my recent purchase of a lovely townhouse in Ocoee, Fl. Doug & Ginger are a dynamite team and guided me through the entire process, to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal. I credit Doug & Ginger with a seamless, stress-free home-buying experience. This is my second property purchase and never had I had such a pleasurable experience. Doug & Ginger are savvy, personable and know the market inside and out. I never could have gotten through this ordeal without them. To reiterate, I am nothing but pleased with The Atkins and their expertise and I recommend them to all my family and friends. Connie Taylor – Doug Atkins
We are extremely pleased with the support and guidance from Doug and Ginger during the purchase of our new home! As a retired Army Warrant Officer, we have had plenty of experience moving and finding new homes to live in. I never would have guessed that after 23 years, this recent home purchase would be the most enjoyable. Doug and Ginger were ahead of everything from day one. This began the day we started contacting potential realtors and immediately felt a genuine connection with Doug. It was apparent from the beginning, we had the best couple that worked tirelessly with our interests in mind. In fact, the only reason we now have our dream home is because these two sacrificed an evening on vacation, without any internet and miraculously used cell coverage to draft our offer on a camping trip. If that doesn’t explain their dedication, I’m not sure what else would. These two are not only top professionals, but the most pleasant people to converse with. I will ensure that anyone I speak with about future home transactions will get their number. Thank you Doug and Ginger for being a huge part of our life changing moment we have dreamed about for so many years! Brandon and Holly Cester – Doug Atkins
Jon in Altamonte Springs: Doug and Ginger made selling my house as smooth and painless an experience as I can ever have hoped for. Prior to making this sale, I had inquired about the market for selling my property to Doug a few times over the past years and he was always enthusiastic to take the time to prepare packets for me about what I could expect in terms of sale price as well as taking as much time as I needed to go over how he came at his results. After doing this a few times, I finally liked the expected numbers and decided to put my house on the market. Despite having a difficult unresponsive HOA as well as a 3rd party Management Company to deal with, Doug and Ginger took care of nearly all of the interactions and complications that were unfortunately necessary in several parts of the the showing and selling process. They made what I was fully expecting to be a stressful and tedious back and forth with those third parties into no effort at all on my part. After the showings and negotiations (which he gave me advice with whenever I asked, always without ever any pressure) with perspective buyers, I can honestly say that Doug was right on the money with his estimate. (Actually, Im happy to say that he was slightly under in his original estimates). Throughout the entire process, Doug and Ginger were always right there to help with any questions or concerns. Their responsiveness was astounding. I dont think I ever had to wait more than 5 minutes for a callback whenever I messaged a question during business hours, and even when I sent him questions way after business hours (expecting to hear back the next day), I was always surprised to hear back in less than an hour. Their combined expertise, professionalism, and responsiveness was some of the best that Ive ever received from a business. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell their property. Source: – Doug Atkins
We were thoroughly pleased with the expertise and service we got from Doug and Ginger Atkins in selling a home. They scouted the market before their first meeting with us and gave us a much better listing price than we had expected. Once they were on-board with us, they acted as a team and were attentive to details throughout the process. They were always available to answer questions, return phone calls, and respond to e-mails. They kept us posted on the “next steps,” upcoming milestone dates, and paperwork needs. They made what could have been a stressful situation into a pleasant experience. We will use them for our future real estate needs, and we highly recommend them to others. Karen and Ron Hildebrand – Doug Atkins
Living in New York and having to sell my house in Florida, I thought I would have to make several trips to Florida until I met Ginger and Doug. After listing my property, that was the only thing I had to do. They recommended and got in touch with a contractor who quoted a fair price to get the house ready (painting, small repairs, yard work, etc.) Doug and Ginger followed up and made sure everything was done in a timely manner. As a result, I didn't have to make any trips to Florida. Great Job and thank you! Charles Jasinski – Doug Atkins
Outstanding husband and wife team!! Sold my home in Winter Springs in 2 days for $328,000. Gave me much needed advice to my home ready for the market. Brian Oliver – Doug Atkins
Doug and Ginger make a great team. They were able to work around my schedule. We started at 5pm and went to sunset multiple times. They would always answer my questions promptly and honestly. They listened and learned what exactly it was I was looking for, and I'm pretty sure they figured it out before I did! They also gave me the tools to search through all the home listings to pick some out, and they always told me what they thought about them, good or bad. Isaac Piersall – Doug Atkins
My husband and I were newlyweds AND first time home buyers and Doug and Ginger made the process seamless. We went to an open house the day after our honeymoon in our dream neighborhood (where houses sold immediately if there were ever any for sale at all) and fell in love with the home. Doug and Ginger understood that it was a fast-moving real estate market, placed an offer the next day, and the sellers accepted our offer that evening. Despite everything happening so quickly, Doug and Ginger always made sure that we were able to make fully educated decisions at every part of the process. Their knowledge and accessibility allowed our first home buying experience to be stress free and enjoyable. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone! Erin and Michael – Doug Atkins
I used Doug Atkins to purchase my home in DeLand a few years ago. He was knowledgeable about the houses listed, patient with me as I am very selective and most importantly, found the house I WANTED, not the most expensive house I could afford. Later, his wife Ginger joined him and the two of them are a dynamic couple. What one doesn't think of, the other does. They sold my vacant property, last week, after a former buyer kept dragging his feet. When we move into the house we are building, Doug and Ginger will definitely get our listing. They are the best. Adrienne Adriatico – Doug Atkins
Late in 2016 we began looking for a realtor to sell our home and we learned of Doug & Ginger Atkins. From our initial meeting they were a delight to work with. Knowledgeable with our neighborhood and home they always gave solid, documented advice about the market, prices, how to prepare the home to present and best time to list. Everything they said was true and helpful. Their professional guidance kept us informed and they were never pushy or overbearing. When they found the buyers they handled all the negotiating and paperwork in an easy going yet professional manner. The deal went smoothly with easy to understand explanations and frequent communication from the initial showing through a smooth closing. We recommend Doug and Ginger to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. David & Cynde Malinowski – Doug Atkins
Ginger and Doug, what an absolute pleasure to work through you to sell our condo! Your thoroughness in administratively preparing for the sale was exceeded only by your ability to guide us in preparing the property to be sold. Pointing-out the obvious must have been too easy, then, pointing-out detailed nuances that would entice a buyer, we're certain resulted in the one (1) day sale - can't beat that. Particularly, I want to thank you for dealing with our tenant, even if it was our Son and his betrothed. And, we thank you for the referral to the fellow that put-in the new floor, he did an excellent job and cleaned-up very well. Again, thanks so very much, we enjoyed meeting and getting to know you. Regards, Shirley and Mike Corbett – Doug Atkins
Thank you Doug and Ginger for your professional assistance in helping us purchase our home in Casselberry. Having a Real Estate professional like yourselves on our side has been the best decision My wife Debbie and I have made. Thank you for your guidance through the purchase of our new home. We will definitely refer you to our friends and family. snoopcarr – Doug Atkins
We met Doug and Ginger through a web search. Leery of transacting business with someone we did not know or were not recommended to, we decided to give it a shot, and a great shot that was. Characteristics of this pair: High INTEGRITY, caring, thoughtful, excellent negotiators, highly knowledgeable, professional, empathetic, accessible...we can go on and on. They sold our home in record timing (on the market for only 6 days). They researched our wants so well that they found our new home in one day, and on the second home we looked at, and closed in record timing as well. D & D Bowman – Doug Atkins
