ABOUT ME

How long have you lived in CT?

I’ve lived in CT my whole life. I was born in Hartford and grew up in Madison. Other than my years spent in college in Mid-State NY, Connecticut is where I’ve always called home.

What part of CT do you live in and why?

My wife, 2 kids and I currently live in East Haven. I’ve always been drawn to the shore. While I love hiking and being on the mountain top, the coast is a magnet for me and my wife.

What’s your favorite local spot?

That’s tough to say. While I enjoy going out now and again, I enjoy staying in as well. We’re definitely a fans of Wood ‘n’ Tap in Hamden as well as World of Beer in West Hartford and Milford. And of course who doesn’t love Pepe’s Pizza in New Haven.

What’s your favorite time of year in CT?

This is probably a common answer for this question, but autumn is a no brainer. I love winter and spring, not much of a hot summer guy but autumn in New England is to die for. The trees changing colors, the Fall Festivals everywhere and the cool nights and warm dry sunny days. What’s not to love?!

What makes you happy?

I’m a happy guy to begin with! My kids are an obvious starting point. I have a son and a daughter and find that I am learning as much from them as I am trying to teach them. They keep me moving and I can never wait to see what exciting thing they have for me next!

If you moved today and only had one box to take with you, what would you put in it?

I don’t know that I could pack it with memories! I guess I would pack some of my favorite movies. I love all genres and can get lost in any good story, which is why I would also try to fit in a couple of my favorite books as well.

MY LISTINGS

TESTIMONIALS

Thanks to social media, Doug and I have been able to reconnect after attending college together nearly 2 decades ago. I am so happy that he found his passion in becoming a real estate agent! We have had many discussions about house sales, home buying, and rental over the past few years, and he really knows and understands the real estate market. His past experience in construction comes in handy for his clients, and his compassionate nature will put you at ease to make your next real estate transaction completely stress-free. His energy is so positive that he has inspired me to seek out my real estate license here in New York! If you are looking for a realtor, I would absolutely recommend Doug to anyone! I know because he doesn’t treat you like a client, he treats you like you want to be treated…a friend!

Doug reached out to me and needed a quick turn around on some painting for his new home. The house was in pretty good shape, just needed a fresh new look. Through conversation, I learned that Doug is a very knowledgeable real estate agent and had a good handle on the market. If you need help buying a home, selling a house or renting, Doug is a smart choice and I would be happy to recommend his help to anyone!!!

I can’t put it into words how thankful I am to have worked with Douglas finding my first home. Doug is very responsive and professional. Service was excellent from start to finish. He never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. I would highly recommend him due to the fact that I received the best service any agent could provide.

Doug is an honest, hardworking and knowledgeable agent. He won’t steer you wrong and will give you honest feedback. He has a fun and easy-going personality, which makes your experience that much better. Buying and selling a house can be incredibly stressful, but with the right agent it doesn’t have to be! Anyone would be lucky to work with Doug!

Doug is a realtor filled with heart. He is very informative with regard to real estate but with his personality he made our search fun. We always looked forward to going out to look at property with Doug because he has a vision, he shares to help you see what your house could be. He also will fight for you. Our purchase became very stressful after the seller decided not to sell, but Doug worked with our attorney to get us our home! Doug has the skills, knowledge and personality that makes him a great real estate agent and I would recommend him to anyone! Anyone would be lucky to work with Doug!

Doug’s professionalism and work ethic are top notch! Doug is very knowledgeable and always there for his clients.

Doug is extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, and professional. You can’t go wrong with Doug in your corner!

One day my wife and I decided to buy a house, so we weighed our anchor and set sail into a stormy sea of open houses with absolutely no knowledge of home-buying. It was quite overwhelming until we arrived at a small single-family house that Doug happened to be showing that day. We hit it off, he gave us his business card, and we arranged a time to meet and drink coffee to learn about buying a home. I soon found out that not only is Doug extremely knowledgeable about the subject but he’s a great teacher as well and has all the patience in the world when it comes to teaching my wife and me. Over the course of several months we must have seen a few dozen houses before finally discovering our home; our safe harbor. Doug made house hunting fun and we always looked forward to seeing houses with him and learning new things. When it comes time to sell our house, we plan on going back to Doug.

Doug was AMAZING to work with!! He was extremely professional and always made himself available. Doug was also very knowledgeable which helped us out immensely as first-time home buyers.

Doug was extremely helpful and attentive throughout the process of selling our home. He is very knowledgeable of the market and navigating the aspects of selling a home. I highly recommend him and his team.

I found Doug Blackwood to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful when looking at houses. My experience working with Doug was so much easier and much more positive than any of my past experiences with other realtors.

I’ll start by saying that Douglas is the best seller without a doubt. During our search to acquire a property, he always gave us a lot of professionalism, charisma, and a lot of patience. Doug contagion with his great energy, sympathy and extensive knowledge in the field and able to answer each of our doubts. Today, more than a house, we have a home and all thanks to Douglas and not to lower our arms with us.

Doug was very helpful with the process of me getting into my new home! He’s very responsive, very personable and punctual. Doug went out of his way to meet me wherever I was to sign papers etc. Highly recommended!

Doug Blackwood… What can we say? He is the type of guy you want to bring home and introduce your family to. This man is more than just a realtor, he is a friend. He is one of the most well informed, helpful, yet witty and fun individuals we have ever met. He has had the misfortune of having to deal with us for years, showing us countless houses and responding to our absurd late-night questions all while keeping a very positive attitude and making every situation fun and enjoyable. Some realtors will not give the time of day to buyers who are on a lower budget, but Doug has the patience of a saint and ALWAYS looked out for our best interest, regardless of the situation. If you want someone who will truly work with you and show you a good time (in a professional way of course), Doug is the guy. There are not enough words that we could use to properly thank Doug our express how much we truly appreciated working with him.
